This week, we conclude the Green Party Presidential Candidate Forum started last week.  This was recorded in July at the Green Party Annual National Meeting at the University of Missouri-St. Louis.  James Lane, the Green Party candidate for Congress in the 11th, was the keynote speaker at the event.  We’ll round out the hour with his remarks.

Here is a link to part one:

It’s Women’s Equality Week on the Heartland Labor Forum. We’ll interview two Pioneer Working Women. First, Janet Smith organized and became President of the Faculty Union at University of Illinois Chicago. When the administration split the non-tenured and tenured faculty in two, she insisted on bargaining together.  Second, Jacki Chadwick drives a cement truck the size of a dinosaur. She’s a Teamster and says she and the guys work as a team delivering the cement. Tune in Thursday at 6pm, rebroadcast Friday at 5am.


Christine Smith and Jo Anderson, two of the ‘February Sisters’, at KU in 1972, tell how over 200 women organized and 30 women took over a Hall on KU Campus to demand rights for women students and employees. They held the Hall hostage from dusk  until dawn, while negotiating with KU to get six demands met. This was historic as it was the first time women took over a building to demand civil rights for women.

 

Tribute to’ February Sisters” in memory of C.J. Brune, long-time Lawrence Activist, is part of Women’s Equality Week. For more info:  www.Facebook.com/WomensequalityGKC
