On March 12, American Friends Service Committee released a report based on their listening sessions at an event at the KCMO Health Department to stimulate more debate and dialogue about budget and revenue policy and to organize community action. They began the project focusing on the Federal budget but as they held listening sessions, they soon saw that the same destructive austerity / budget cutting directive is functioning at the state and local levels. This next stage of the project is to share what was heard and to listen in public forums to the experiences of those attending. AFSC does this to empower and mobilize more and more community members to step up, tell their story and work to make budget, revenue and public policy serve community needs rather than only those of the rich and powerful.

Environmentalists, farmers, unions, and human rights organizations all participated. This week on the Heartland Labor Forum, we’ll rebroadcast highlights from the event. Tune in Thursday at 6PM, rebroadcast Friday at 5AM.


One Struggle KC was formed in the wake of the killing of Michael Brown by Ferguson, MO police officer Darren Wilson by some of the young people who went to Ferguson to protest. While there they learned how peaceful protests were being conducted, what individuals needed to do to protect themselves during a protest and what organizers needed to do to get their message across. The initial efforts to spread this information and train people in our commun ity was done by young women, today we have two of those organizers in the house.

Host Rebecca Hamilton will be talking with Kristen Chow, co-founder of One Struggle KC and founding member Brittany Coleman about the devaluation of Black and Brown lives in our society and call for an END to ALL forms of state violence, including the Prison Industrial Complex and the School-to-Prison Pipeline. Find out why you should and how you can get involved.

identity of a city. A varied public art collection inspires dialogue,
provides visual appeal and symbolizes the vitality of its city.

and sometimes contentious role that art plays in the public realm.
