Aug 26 on FM: Ferguson / Teen Voices / HOODSisters

Coming up on Feminist Magazine, with Hosts Valecia Phillips & Abeni Moreno, & co-producer Rita Gonzales :  Are you outraged by what’s been happening in Ferguson, Missouri? Sadly, it’s not new. We spend the first half of the hour bringing you an interview with activist and educator Mariame Kaba of Project NIA, from Radio Dispatch on BreakThru Radio. She discusses the militarization of the police and longstanding history of state-imposed terror and violence in Black communities. She also talks about the importance of including women in the discourse and maintaining an intersectional gaze.

AND, it’s time to bridge the generational gap in news production and journalism! Katina Paron, Managing Editor of Teen Voices at Women’s eNews joins us live and we’re getting the scoop on how this one-of-kind nonprofit organization is creating vital, investigative, authentic teenage perspectives within the world of news. Teen Voices aims to increase visibility of women and young girls in news production by creating access to education, mentoring opportunities and international content-producing partnerships for young female journalists.

PLUS, “A woman’s place is” … in the struggle … and painting community murals on Van Nuys Boulevard! Lynn Harris Ballen talks with HOODsisters – an all-womyn and womyn-identified mural crew dedicated to creating awareness through public art on Pacoima’s ‘Mural Mile’. They’re bringing community together and honoring subjects ranging from Assata Shakur to indigenous resistance leader, Toypurina. We’re joined by three members of the crew – Kristy Sandoval, Rosa Lopez and Natalia Hernandez – to tell us all about it!
Tuesdays at 3pm PST.  THIS is what feminism sounds like!
