CODEPINK and Global Exchange

 

Meet Medea Benjamin, author and American political activist and co-founder of the women-led peace group CODEPINK and the co-founder of the human rights group Global Exchange. She has been an advocate for social justice for more than 40 years. We’ll also discuss this past March 8th’s International Women’s Day event celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievement of women. The theme was #BeBoldForChange. The earliest Women’s Day observance was held on February 28, 1909 in New York and organized by the Socialist Party of America.

Washington DC Admission Act

Our topics this week include the President’s first speech to Congress, the economy and the new bill for D.C. Statehood called the  ‘Washington, DC Admission Act’ introduced by Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton and DC Council Chairman Phil Mendelson to make Washington, DC the 51st state.  The bill introduced in the 115th Congress will reflect the statehood efforts of the New Columbia Statehood Commission and the historic support of 85.6 percent of voters on the November ballot question. This is the first time that the bill will be called the “Washington, DC Admission Act” to reflect the new name selected by the DC Council.

Women march on Washington

We will be looking at the Women’s March on Washington, a political rally scheduled to take place in Washington, D.C., on January 21, 2017, to promote women’s rights, immigration reform, and LGBTQIA rights, and to address racial inequities, worker’s issues, and environmental issues. It aims to send a bold message to our new administration on their first day in office, and to the world that women’s rights are human rights. Our guests will be some of the women that participated in this March and we will hear their first-hand account!
