Planned Parenthood Under Attack - March 22, 201

Join host jim justice as she talks with Mount Baker Planned Parenthood Executive Director, Linda McCarthy, about the latest bills filed supposedly to cut funds for the abortions Planned Parenthood provides using federal funds. But Planned Parenthood does NOT use federal funds on abortions AND only a very small percent of their budget includes abortion services. Linda explains very thoroughly the various services they do provide - both educational and medical. jim asked about various fundraisers and Linda says they know virtually nothing about them because their allies are hosting them. Linda is concerned that allies are sending their funds to the National office, which doesn't pass them on. So, she'd prefer they be sent/taken directly to MBPP. They have clinics in Mount Vernon, Bellingham and Friday Harbor.

Then hear from various supporters, local as well as Bernie Sanders and ACLU Deputy Legal Director Louise Melling (who was on the recent ACLU broadcast).

A CULTURAL SHIFT IN FIREARM LEGISLATION - March 15, 2017

It's been proven in Washington State that common-sense gun laws are favored by the majority of citizens. The Alliance for Gun Responsibility works to create laws that reflect this, promoting a culture of gun ownership that balances rights with responsibilities. Following the successful passage of two citizen-initiated gun violence prevention initiatives in 2014 and 2016 - both by wide margins - there is now a better opportunity to create common-sense gun legislation in our state. Julia Hurd talks with Renee Hopkins, Executive Director of the Alliance, about the Alliance's current policy points as well as its collaboration with civic leaders, other organizations, and grass roots networks, including Safe and Sane Skagit https://www.facebook.com/Safe-and-Sane-Skagit-171649423199321/?fref=photo ; and promotion of community education to reduce the gun violence crisis in our society.

County Libraries: LaConner Regional Library, Part 1 - March 3, 2017

Our community libraries are still great repositories of reading materials, but times are certainly changing. LaConner Library Director Joy Neal shares the story of today's library of wifi connections, meeting places, continuing education classes and computer training with host Jerry Shackette. It's moved way past long rows of books. It's a new story of meeting the informational needs of the community today. This conversation will bring you up to the minute and maybe you'll renew that library card!

The Threat of Nuclear War in Today's World - March 1, 2017

Today's show features physician-activist Dr. Ira Helfand, president of International Physicians for the Prevention of Nuclear War. Dr. Helfand has studied the threats to human existence posed by use of nuclear weapons, and has tirelessly advocated for international disarmament for decades. His talk is a wake-up call addressing the widespread cultural belief that the end of the Cold War brought an end to worries about nuclear annihilation. Along with this sobering message, Dr. Helfand also describes work by the international community of non-nuclear countries to pressure the nuclear powers to dismantle their nuclear arsenals; work which has been ignored by U.S. media. This show brings you highlights of Dr. Helfand's talk at Seattle's Town Hall in 2016, edited for Speak Up! Speak Out! by Ginny Wolff. Our thanks to KUOW for generously providing their recording, and to Town Hall for hosting the event.
