Citizens For Justice In The Middle East
We start off today’s Tell Somebody with guest host Jeff Humfeld talking to Kristine Elizabeth and Fatima Mohamadi of Citizens For Justice In The Middle East. We spoke about the blockade of Gaza which is the underlying reason for much of the violence there and what we in Kansas City can do to change the dialogue among people and in the media to bring about meaningful change.
