How our Democracy was a Stolen and How to Get it Back - June 21, 2017

Mark McDermott is a union activist and community organizer who has worked all his life for economic, social and racial justice, and peace. In today's show he speaks with Ginny Wolff about the history of the deliberate corporate takeover of democracy in the U.S. since the late 1800's, and what we must do to unite and win it back. Illustrated with revealing quotes, historical perspective, and real life experience, Mark's style serves as a example we can all use for how to talk with people, tell our own stories, and win back hearts and minds.

People Power Skagit - May 31, 2017

People Power Skagit, inspired by the ACLU, was recently founded in response to President Trump's mandate to step up detention of undocumented immigrants. For today's show, People Power members Rob Coffey, Steve Crider and Anne Winkes join Ginny Wolff to talk about what motivated them personally to join the group, and how they are focusing their efforts. Working closely with the Skagit Immigrant Rights Council, they have been in communication with local law enforcement about their agencies' policies regarding cooperating with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) personnel; coordinating visible demonstrations of immigrant support such as holding vigil at the Detention Center in Tacoma; and working on creating a "Rapid Response Team" to bear witness at ICE raids.

The group is growing rapidly. For more information or to sign up for the email list for People Power, email peoplepowerskagit@gmail.com. Any level of participation is welcome.

What is the relationship between Immigrants and Citizens? And, he talks about the presumed economic displacement of citizens by immigrants taking jobs here.
