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.

On news of the death of Danny Schechter, investigative journalist Greg Palast wrote:
“Known for bringing the world the story of Nelson Mandela, Danny gave up cushy jobs at ABC and CNN, the big bucks and a steady flow of mainstream awards to blow the whistle on the degradation of American news. Danny exposed what he called the “news goo” of talking hair-dos—denouncing them as repeaters, not reporters. One of his searing books told it all in the title: “The More You Watch, the Less You Know.””
This week on a very special installment of Tell Somebody, Tom Klammer speaks with Palast about the life and times of Danny Schechter.

Veterans Voices – Writing From The Soul For The Soul

Hospitalized Veterans’ Writing Project (HVWP) utilizes therapeutic writing to rehabilitate veterans. Their Mission is to enable military veterans to experience solace and satisfaction through our writing program.

The project encourages veterans to express their thoughts and feelings in writing and to send their stories, essays and poems to the HVWP headquarters for potential publication in Veterans’ Voices magazine. HVWP publishes Veterans’ Voices three times a year. The magazine is made possible by ongoing contributions to HVWP and with the support of the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs.

Today’s host is Beth Pike, Beth is our regular engineer for JoJR and this is the first show she is producing for us. Her guests are Margaret Clark, Editor in Chief of Veterans’ Voices, Tina Hacker, Poetry Editor of Veterans’ Voices and Perry Puccetti, President and Chief officer of Triple-I Corporation. They will talk about Veteran’s Voices Magazine, how veterans can submit their writing and share some of their own writing. They will also let you know how you can show your support for the magazine and the Hospitalized Veterans writing Project.
