    The Good, Bad & Ugly of Animal Advocacy in Social Media

    in Pets

    Join Dogfather and Joe Frazier with guest host, Rachel Marie in Wisconsin.

    The Good, Bad & Ugly of Animal Advocacy in Social Media.
    Does social media do more harm than good to a cause? 

    Do we really need to spend more time online sharing and liking, commenting and arguing the fate of a dog, or are our efforts better spent locally with less time online?

    Are public clashes between advocacy and rescue groups acceptable behavior, and if you take a side, do you know enough about the situation to make that a logical choice?

    How can we better work together as advocates, in and out of social media?

    These questions and others will be the topic of this weeks discussion on The Pit Bull Advocate. Tune in and call in to add your voice!

    Choose your weapon: Social Advocacy vs Economic Empowerment

    in Lifestyle

    On this episode of Life Full Circle Radio, we will discuss the overall methods of change. Is it best to use social advocacy, economic empowerment or both.

    We've have just came out of Black History Month and the commmeration of #Selma50. At the same time we have the issues of the #SAE racist rants, another #Ferguson shooting and The killing of #TonyRobinson in Madison, WI. Our country seems to be a powder keg right now, with a short fuse. All this is going on while our economy is rebounding. Most of America is simply watching this unrest like a movie on TV, instead of it being many peoples lives.

    We will talk about this convergance of Social Advocacy and Economic Empowerment with Anthony Butler from the E3 Business Group.

    Advocacy: Moving Forward, What Now?

    in Women

    After immigrating to Queens, New York, Marisol has suffered alone and in silence at the hands of her abusive and cheating husband for years. Now pregnant with her second child, her desperation to save her young son and soon-expected daughter from this hell has reached its breaking point. The catalysts that finally make Marisol muster up the courage to escape are the words from her son, “Mom, get us out of here”, and the encouragement of her neighbor, Gladys. One night, she wakes her son while her husband is asleep. They escape with nothing but the clothes on their backs. Marisol is all alone in a new country with no means of support, but she knows she must find the strength to make a better future for her children.

    Breastfeeding Advocacy anytime, any place?

    in Women

    Why do we have so much contraversy around Breastfeeding?  One of the reasons is the way women's bosies have been objectified and subjectified.  Showing women's nipples in public has such shame attached to it - as Janet Jackson found out at the Super bowl when her nipple slipped out of her top.  Women are covering their babies in a quest to cover themselves while breastfeeding in public - almost seems like a step backwards in liberating ourselves.  Advocacy plays an important role in liberating us from taboos that no longer serve us.  Today we talk breastfeeding & advocacy with Derek Forgie, a Canadian comedian and active advocate for breastfeeding and a whole lot more!  He posted a very passionate rant entitled "Superbowl vs My Wifes Breasts" that went viral.  You will hear it here but it's a must to watch https://www.facebook.com/video.php?v=10153051548929836

    Back2Us Show: Educational Advocacy 101

    in LGBT

    It's that time of year when everyone is on the hunt for the school supply list, the teacher wish list; and, that Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle backpack that Target had online but can't locate in the store (oh wait, that's MY challenge at the moment). 

    Seriously, this time of year for many is filled with excitement but for children who learn differently and their parents--there is often very little to be excited about as the fights about homework resume.  

    According to a 2010 report from the National Center for Learning Disabilities, nearly 2.4 million students are diagnoised with LD and receive special education services in schools.  

    For parents trying to navigate this educational maze to obtain help for their child, it  is often described as the equivilent of attempting to climb Mt. Everest in flipflops.  

    What do you need to know to advocate effectively for your child? What is an IEP?  Who is eligible for a 504 plan? Is there really a difference between a 504 Plan and an IEP? What are the first steps in the IEP process? Does it really speed up the process to get your child tested outside of the school system? What are some types of things you as a parent or guardian can ask to have included in the IEP?  We're going to cover all of this and more! 

    If you have a child that you believe may need extra help in school to thrive then this show is for you! 

    We will have Licensed Psychologist Dr. Arcella Trimble as our guest to help navigate the waters on Educational Advocacy 101 for Parents and Guardians as well as blogger Karen Wesley Weaver.  

    Karen's blog, Confessions of An Asperger's Mom (http://confessionsofanaspergersmom.blogspot.com/) has been featured on Mamapedia and is listed on the Top Mommy Blogs http://www.topmommyblogs.com (yes, please go vote for Confessions of An Asperger's Mom).
