The Voice of Change is honored to have back Georganne Chapin. Chapin is an attorney and executive director of Intact America, an organization that works to protect babies and children from circumcision and all other forms of medically unnecessary genital alteration.
NOTE: 50 minutes into the progarm we had a technical isse and lost connection. Please fast forward about 5 minutes for the ending of the program and Chapin's very important closing remarks.
In late August 2012, the American Academy of Pediatrics released a new Technical Report by its Task Force on Circumcision. The report claims that the "benefits" of routine infant circumcision outweigh the risks. However, the report also states repeatedly that no good studies have been done on those risks. And the report ignores the growing accounts in medical literature, the press and the internet of botched circumcisions, sexual dysfunction, psychological impact, and –deaths of babies following circumcision.
Intact America was barred from the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) annual convention, which took place Oct. 20-23 in New Orleans. So Intact America took to the street in front of the convention center. Several dozen intactivists converged to tell doctors to STOP circumcising baby boys.
Chapin says: “Shame on the American Academy of Pediatrics! This group, which describes itself as ‘dedicated to the health and wellbeing of infants, children, adolescents and young adults,’ has put its own interests before those of the children it is supposed to protect. The AAP has turned a blind eye to global trends and hard evidence proving that infant circumcision is medically unnecessary, unethical, and causes serious harm. Tune in for this very informative hour with Georganne.

Jen Chapin’s music is urban folk soul — story songs that search for community and shared meaning, powered by the funk and improvisation of the city. Critics have hailed her work as “brilliant.. soulfully poetic” (NPR), “thoughtful … worth-savoring” (People), “addictive” (Boston Globe), “smart, observant, lyrically deft, politically aware and emotionally intuitive” (Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel). JazzTimes has called her “a first-rate storyteller” while Relix regards her as “one of the freshest voices singing today.” Jen has been featured on “Late Nite with Conan O’Brien”, NPR’s Mountain Stage and WoodSongs Old-Time Radio Hour, Sirius Satellite’s The Loft with Mike Marrone and Mary Sue Twohy’s The Village.Jen’s cover of Van Morrison’s “Into the Mystic” was prominently featured in a recent episode of the new SyFy series “Defiance”.
Jen’s music reflects a diversity of experience. She is mother to 8 year old Maceo and 4 year old Van Crump, who most often accompany their parents on tour. She is an activist, with a life-long involvement in WhyHunger (founded in 1975 by Jen’s late father Harry Chapin), an organization that champions innovative, community-based solutions to hunger and poverty; and is also active in the local and sustainable food movement. She is an educator, leading workshops and presentations to college, community and church groups, with a background teaching full-time in Brooklyn classrooms. And she is a student, with a BA in International Relations from Brown University, additional studies at Berklee College of Music, extensive travels and studies in Zimbabwe and Mexico, and an ongoing passion to learn more about the world, and its emerging pathways to greater social justice.
Georganne Chapin joins Trish Causey to talk about the dangers of non-consensual circumcision that is routinely performed in the United States, even though it is not routinely done in the rest of the world.
Amputating a baby boy's foreskin leads to numerous side effects later, including healing complications, neurological isues, as well as increasing the potential for erectile dysfunction later in life.
Equally heinous is Female Genital Cutting, but that has been officially made illegal in the United States.
Intact America, founded in 2008 thanks to funding from a private donor, is the most recent expression of a movement against infant circumcision that has been active and expanding for decades. Intact America counts among its advisors many long-term Intactivists, as well as many new people who have embraced Intact America’s commitment to protect all babies and children–male and female–from the forced modification of their genitalia. Georganne Chapin, a leader in the fight for ethical, cost-effective and high quality health care, is Intact America’s founding executive director. Ms. Chapin holds a BA in anthropology from Barnard College, an MPhil in sociomedical sciences from Columbia University, and a JD from Pace University School of Law.

Super stoked to interview a prolific and inspiring writer C. Hope Clark who I've admired for years. During our time together, I'll be interviewing her about The Carolina Slade Mystery Series and most recently, Palmetto Poison, the third book to the series, which was just released in February 2014
Here's a bit about C. Hope Clark. I hope you can join us for what will be an informative and interesting interview.
C. Hope Clark was born and reared in the South, from Mississippi to South Carolina with a few stints in Alabama and Georgia. The granddaughter of a Mississippi cotton farmer, Hope holds a B.S. in Agriculture with honors from Clemson University and 25 years’ experience with the U. S. Department of Agriculture to include awards for her management, all of which enable her to talk the talk of Carolina Slade, the protagonist in most of her novels. Her love of writing, however, carried her up the ranks to the ability to retire young, and she left USDA to pen her stories and freelance.
Hope is married to a 30-year veteran of federal law enforcement, a Senior Special Agent, now a contract investigator. They met on a bribery investigation within the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the basis for the opening scene to Lowcountry Bribe. Hope and her special agent live on the rural banks of Lake Murray outside of Chapin, South Carolina, forever spinning tales on their back porch, bourbon and coke in hand.
She also currently manages FundsforWriters.com, a weekly newsletter service she founded that reaches 45,000+ writers to include university professors, professional journalists and published mystery authors. Writer’s Digest has recognized the site in its annual 101 Best Web Sites for Writers for thirteen years.
Bridge to the Soul: The Art of Healing Series.
Art 4 All People welcomes Deborah Koff Chapin to our Art 4 All People Radio Show. We will talk about Art, transfomation, Arts and Healing, and much more. Deborah will also be facilitating a transformative art workshop at our USC exhibtion at the IGM Gallery, Bridge to the Soul: The Art of Healing on January 25th, 2014.
We invite you to this sacred expressive arts experience. To sign up and for more informaiton about Touch Drawing, A Portal to the Soul, go to this link: HERE
Touch Drawing is a simple but profound drawing process. Through the touch of the fingertips, lines are formed on paper that has been placed over a smooth surface of paint. Images emerge with surprising speed, enabling 10-30 drawings to be created in a single session. The freedom of expression allows for a powerful transformational process to occur. Each drawing is an imprint of the body and psyche, and acts as a stepping-stone deeper into the soul. In this all-day workshop, movement, vocalizing, writing and SoulCards are woven into the day, to present a unique approach to multi-modal Expressive Arts. Deborah hold a sacred space with her live music (heartbeat drum, crystal bowls, voice) while you draw. Find out more about Touch Drawing at http://www.touchdrawing.com.
Bio: Deborah Koff-Chapin BFA has been developing Touch Drawing since 1974, teaching at universities, conferences and retreat centers internationally. She is author of Drawing Out Your Soul, The Touch Drawing Facilitator Workbook, educational media and SoulCards 1&2. Deborah is founding director of The Center for Touch Drawing and served on the board of the International Expressive Art Therapy Association.
TRIGGER WARNING: Some or all of the discussion in this episode may be triggering to individuals.
In this second part, join RevKess and Kalisara as we expand on the topic of sex abuse in the Pagan community. We will be looking at the concept of consent, as well as talking with a few guests.
Cat Chapin-Bishop became a psychotherapist in 1986, and she has had about 20 years of experience as a counselor specializing in work with survivors of childhood sexual abuse. She served as the first Chair of Cherry Hill Seminary's Pastoral Counseling Department, and designed the earliest version of CHS's Boundaries and Ethics course, which is still central to the program there. Cat has been a Pagan since 1987, and a Quaker as well as a Pagan since 2001. Her writings can be found online at Quaker Pagan Reflections (http://quakerpagan.blogspot.com/).
Amber Moon, a Pagan police officer and one of the leaders of Officers of Avalon (http://www.officersofavalon.com/ https://www.facebook.com/groups/138693635354/), was to be discussing how to report abuse, but was unable to make it due to a work issue.
We will also be taking a look at the problem arising from the Florida Pagan Gathering's choice to include Gavin & Yvonne Frost in their guest lineup. The Frosts published a book in the 70s in which they explicitely encouraged the sexual initiation of minors. To date, they have not recanted this (they, in fact, republished the book with this concept intact), nor have they stopped promoting the idea in workshops and presentations.
Brian Liu wins the biggest Modern and Constructed tournament in history (thus far) by beating a field of Pod, Affinity, and Pod. Well...and Twin.
Can anything stop Pod other than Pod? What about the rest of the field? Why is Patrick Chapin so good at articulating Magic theory?
David and Eloy once again return for ineloquent banter over all things Modern.
