FM April 11 – Marching for Science / EqualPay / Resist Checklist

4-11-17-collageTHIS WEEK on Feminist Magazine – with co-hosts Lynn Harris Ballen & Kiyana Turner : FIRST … It’s time to march again – to march united in our passionate support of Science, and its vital role in informing policy, benefiting public and environmental health, and education. With ‘alternative facts’ and attacks on science under the current administration, the upcoming March for Science on Earth Day, April 22nd is getting a lot of attention.  And LA’s march – One of 400 around the world –  is predicted to be one of the largest. We hear from two LA organizers – physical chemist & educator Amy Hee Kim, and Rebecca Fuoco – Director of Health Research Communication Strategies.
THEN … We hear another powerful piece from the poets of Get Lit – Words Ignite. Part of the weekly video series from Get Lit – addressing the Trump administration’s actions since January this year. This Week 11 poem is written by Bene’t Benton & Mila Cuda, and performed by Bene’t Benton : “Trump Order Drops Pesky Regulations on Equal Pay.”
PLUS … What happened when a mild-mannered ghostwriter and blogger in Salem, Oregon was frustrated after Trump was elected last fall? Jen Hoffman became an unlikely activist for democracy – producing the weekly Action Checklist for Americans of Conscience reaching thousands with ways to protest and praise elected officials, and news about successes of the resistance.
ALL this this Tuesday at 2pm PT on Feminist Magazine on KPFK. WHAT Feminism Sounds Like!
