In this podcast, we speak to Scott Parkin of Rainforest Action Network and Rising Tide/North America about non-violent civil disobedience and it’s role in transformative change.

    Move to Amend Reports w/ Laura Bonham & Egberto Willies

    in Politics

    September 24, 2015

    Black Lives Matter has been in the headlines since July for disrupting Democratic presidential campaign rallies through elevated bird-dogging techniques. It wasn’t the tactic that was so newsworthy, but rather the white liberal backlash to the chutzpah of the black women who took center stage.

    In this edition of Move to Amend Reports, we hear from Black Lives Matter organizer and activist Tia Oso, the determined black woman who took the mic--and the corporate-owned news media--by storm at Netroots Nation in July, about how direct action has helped to make racial justice a central issue for the 2016 elections.

    A Message of Hope from an Adoption House and the Pope

    in Politics Conservative

    We are living in a time when so many people feel that so many things are going wrong and we are on a downward spiral. What are we to do when our backs are up against the wall? There is an old saying that "God may not come when you want Him, but He is always on time." Isn’t it good to know that He is bigger than any problem or issue we may face and that He always has a plan for us? This week, Kelsey and Randy Bohlender will be our guests to talk about how God's plan unfolded in their lives. They are the parents of ten children, six of whom they adopted. On Thursday, they celebrate the Grand Opening of Zoe’s House Adoptions, which they started to help others "navigate the complex world of adoption and bring a child into their home." We will also review Pope Francis' visit and message to America.

    Tune in to The Right Voice for the live show with Glo Smith and Adrienne Ross from 8:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. Eastern/7:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. Central every Tuesday. Become part of the conversation by calling in to (646) 200-3715 to comment and ask questions.

    Adoptee Chat

    in Family


    Please join host Pam Kroskie and Lisa Floyd as they discuss being adopted.

    Lisa Floyd grew up in a closed adoption wondering who she was and where she came from. It took many years for her adoption fog to emerge after which she decided to search for and eventually reunite with both sides of her birth families.

    It is only in finding her birth families and what occurred in the beginning days of her life that she has found her identity and her voice. She is passionate about adoptee rights and plans on becoming an attachment and trauma therapist to help her fellow adoptees find their authentic selves and meaningful, purpose-filled lives.

    She is also a contributing writer in the adoption anthologies Adoption Therapy: Perspectives from Clients and Clinicians on Processing and Healing Post-Adoption Issues and The Adoptee Survival Guide: Adoptees Share Their Wisdom and Tools.
