SORT BY Relevancy
Monday, February 23rd, Arkansas Governor Asa Hutchinson allowed a new law to block future anti-discrimination laws (to go into effect 90 days after the legislative session ends later this summer). While the premise of the new law known as SB 202 appears reasonable, in actuality this law allows legal discrimination for all non-protected classes.
In this episode, we hear from three Arkansas residents. Meet once again Scott Wyant, Founder of Straight Talk Arkansas, a website dedicated to Living liberally in the Mid-South.
We'll also hear from Cathey Shoshone and Christina Harrison. Cathey is the Co-Chair and Christina is the Founder of Arkansans For Equality.
Christina Harrison was born and raised in Arkansas. She founded Arkansans for Equality in 2011. As an ally, she had become frustrated with the bigotry she came across towards our fellow Arkansans in the LGBTQ community and wanted to do something to help. She began a ballot initiative to repeal Amendment 83 soon after. Christina is a combat veteran in the Army National Guard, and has just recently returned from a tour in Afghanistan.
Cathey Shoshone, also an ally, was born in Arkansas but has lived in several states around the South. She lives in Arkansas currently, She "liked" the Arkansan for Equality facebook page and volunteered to collect signatures for the ballot initiative. The ballot initiative became obsolete when Cheryl Maples and Jack Wagoner won their case in Judge Piazza's courtroom legalizing same-sex marriage. A federal case has also overthrown Amendment 83 to the Arkansas State Constitution. This decision has been stayed pending an appeal hearing.

Tonight's Topic: Net Neutrality - What it means for you!
Wake Up Everybody! Tonight's episode is "Unity in the Community", a conversation on youth gun violence. It is no secret that there is a crisis of youth gun violence in our communities across this country. On average, 33,000 Americans are killed with guns each year, and the burden of this violence falls disproportionately on young people: 54 percent of people murdered with guns in 2010 were under the age of 30.
What can we do about it? Who do we hold accountable? What are some solutions and strategies to prevent gun violence and the destruction of our communities? How can we become a part of the solution instead of sitting on the side lines complaining and being only a part of the problem? Here to help us answer these questions is Geoffrey A. Davis, Founder and President of James E. Davis, Stop the Violence Foundation. His experience on the front-line battlefield, and his personal story of tragic loss and triumph will serve as an inspiration to all who listen.

Anastasia and Jack reflect on the gains and insights accrued by the recently New Horizons sponsored Coffee House Conversations On Race Relations in Frederick County, Maryland. The coverage of the event by the Frederick News Post can be viewed here.
Anastasia offers that the gains she has experienced as the coordinator of the project have opened her eyes to the movement spreading throughout our country. She see growing numbers of citizens yearning to find ways to solve serious community problems by talking their way through them.
Jack offers a more conservative, less optimistic view, challenging efforts such as these as possibly being more of the same; talk but no significant action or change in sight.
Again, listeners are encouraged to join Anastasia and Jack for the informal discussion forum following the on-air broadcast at: Conference Call in: 712.432.0600, access code 640883.
