Unstoppable Moms Across America Sounding Alarms on GMOs

Announcements    (See Links below)

Featured Guest

1. Zen Honeycutt , Author, Executive Director and Founder, Moms Across America

 —-

1. Zen Honeycutt share how she transformed her anger of discovering the role GMO food had in her three sons suffering from the symptoms of autoimmune diseases into her own research and into reaching out to other mothers across America to share stories of how a diet of GMO food affected their kids with disease. This spurred her on to found the non-profit organization Moms Across America, opening the door to speaking on network tv and at internationla events. Zen recently published her book, UNSTOPPABLE: Transforming Sickness and Struggle into Triumph, Empowerment, and a Celebration of Community. Zen let’s us know what we consumers can do to remove GMOs from the diet and from the store shelves. Zen also comments on the Federal Civil Court ruling on awarding an ailing goundskeeper with leukemia $289 million for Monsanto knowingly made false claims on the safety of the herbicide Roundup with the carcinogenic ingredient of glyphosate. The GMO strategy of Monsanto (recently purchased by Bayer into the world’s largest agribusiness and seed company) is based on glyphosate being safe, but a federal court has found the company lying about its product safety.

About our Guest:  Zen Honeycutt is the founding executive director of Moms Across America, a non-profit National Coalition of Unstoppable Moms, and author of the new book UNSTOPPABLE: Transforming Sickness and Struggle into Triumph, Empowerment, and a Celebration of Community. Zen has three boys with allergies, asthma, autoimmune, and autism symptoms which greatly improved when they went GMO-free and organic. In the process of creating Moms Across America, and becoming an international speaker, she discovered that thousands of Moms are seeing the same results. With the motto “Empowered Moms, Healthy Kids,” Moms Across America has grown rapidly during its first five years with over 600 leaders having created 1,000+ community events in all 50 states, and marching Moms in many civic parades drawing attention to healthy diets without GMOs. Zen is also the director and producer of the short documentary Communities Rising. The Moms Across America and now Mothers Across the World networks are a driving force in transforming the food system and health around the world.  Zen has been featured on CNN, the Dr.Oz show, the Wall Street Journal, CSPAN, ABC 7, and Moms Across America has been on Fox News, the Wall Street Journal, The Hill and more.

2.  Erin Brockovich shares her story on becoming one of the most successful consumer activists in taking on PG&E in Hinkley, CA, in 1993, about which a movie was made called Erin Brockovich. Erin encourages us to break free from the box of other’s expectations and to develop the self-esteem needed for the long and persistent fight for justice.  Erin comes to Sonoma County to help those who were victims of last October wildfire storm that appears to have been sparked by PG&E’s negligent behaviour in protecting their equipment from nearby brush and trees as required as a public utility. Erin warns of legislation that would shield PG&E from accountability in future wildfire disasters in California, inspite of the corporation’s vast wealth.

Erin Brockovich

Erin Brockovich

About our Guest: Erin Brockovich was born in Kansas in 1960. While working as a file clerk at a Los Angeles law firm in 1992, Brockovich uncovered documents that ultimately led to more than 600 residents of Hinkley, California, filing a lawsuit against utility giant PG&E. The $333 million settlement they received was the largest of its kind in the history of the United States. The story of Brokovich’s life and involvement in the case was the subject of the 2000 film Erin Brockovich, which starred Julia Roberts in the title role. Since the film’s release, Erin Brockovich has continued to work as a consumer advocate and environmental activist.

Sonoma County Board of Supervisors (BOS) cutting staff funding for the Sonoma County Commission on the Status of Women and for the Commission on Human Rights

 Really Sonoma County Board of Supervisors (BOS)! You are cutting staff funding for the Sonoma County Commission on the Status of Women at a time when women’s productive rights are in jeopardy and there is an effort to ratify the Equal Rights Amendment. A good example of that is on the federal level: Trump and his fellow Republicans are still trying to defund Planned Parenthood. With a majority of women on the Board, how was this allowed? Have they forgotten whose shoulders they are standing on and the continuous struggle to have a significant place at the table?
In addition the BOS is cutting the staff funding for the Sonoma County Human Rights Commission (HRC) at a time when The United States has pulled out of the United Nations Human Rights Council, with Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley calling it “a mockery of human rights” for allowing China, among other countries, to join, and for a statement that scrutinizes Israel’s treatment of the Palestinian people. In cutting county staff support, in my mind, they are degrading both commissions thus creating a high potential to fail. I encourage you to call your supervisor and let them know this is not acceptable to you.

1. Elaine B. Holtzltz , Co-Producer, Host, Women’s Spaces

 —-

1. Elaine B. Holtz comments on the times through word accompanied by her favorite songs, including a report on the 48th annual Juneteenth Festival in Santa Rosa that occurred on Saturday June 16. and which she helped produce this year. This is a great event to help rid one of stereotypes often created in childhood and reinforced in our daily life by people acting unconsciously with the beliefs and resulting judgments of one another. Elaine reads the testimony of Senator Merkley who visited a federal ICE detention center for children. The cruelty and harm due to separation of children from their parents at our borders seeking asylum from violence in their country calls for spiritual warriors, people of conscience. Elaine reminds us that we stand on the shoulders of women who dared to rally for women’s sufferage and rights, and that the National Women’s History Project (www.nwhp.org) was founded in our own Sonoma County. The reminders are necessary as we see in our county that in the last election on June 5 that only 26% of registered voters actually voted, and only 22% statewide in California. Unions and working together against war are also commented on.

About our Host:  I want to tell you a little about myself, kind of a bio like I do with my guests. Well I was born in 1940 in East Los Angeles to a Jewish Family. I lived in a sheltered environment of religion and tradition. My Grandmother Rose Dorfman was very Orthodox and we celebrated every Jewish Holiday Possible. After I graduated High School at eighteen I went on to live in New York for over four years, met my first husband there and we had one child Susan who gave me two grandchildren and now I will be a Great Grandmother in Sept. In 1970 I went back to school and went on to get a Masters Degree in Education and retired in the 2003 as a Corporate Sales Manager. After retirement I went back to being an activist. Had a television show and now have been with KBBF for the past five + years.

2. Dr. Jacqueline Lawrence and 3. Sydni Davenport talk about the history of the Juneteenth, the oldest known celebration commemorating the ending of slavery in the United States. Dating back to 1865, it was on June 19th that the Union soldiers, led by Major General Gordon Granger, landed at Galveston, Texas with news that the war had ended and that the enslaved were now free. Note that this was two and a half years after President Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation – which had become official January 1, 1863.  Our guests share when they first encountered Juneteenth and when they found out its meaning.  Sydni Davenport shares how her grandmother Evangelist Marteal Perry hosted the first Juneteenth in Sonoma County after moving from Texas and settling on a piece of land in Somoma County. Sydni will play a white slave owner’s daughter in the play Unschackled, produced by Dr. Jacqueline Lawerence, who also stars in the production presented at the Juneteenth Celebration in Santa Rosa at the Martin Luther King, jr, Park this Saturday at 10 am.

About our Guest:  Dr. Jacqueline Lawrence was born and raised in Santa Rosa, California, the third of five children to Lamon and Sarah Lawrence. She attended Tuskegee University in Alabama and graduated in 1983 with a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration, and later earned her Masters in Theology and Doctorate in Christian Counseling from Sacramento Theological Seminary and Bible College.Dr. Jacqueline Lawrence is an author, playwright, and Founder and CEO of Legacy Showcases, featuring Heiress Choral Group, The Underground Railroad Pop Up Museum, and a variety of black history productions in honor of African Slaves.

About our Guest:  Sydni Davenport was born and raised in Sonoma county and her grandmother Evangelist Marteal Perry settled in Sonoma County after WWII and started hosting the first Juneteenth in Sonoma County at her homestead in 1953, having enjoyed the annual gathering from her Texas home town and wanting to recreate the experience for Black Americans in Sonoma County, of which at the time were only a few in number.  In 1970 Sydni’s family decided to move the event to the park.  Since Sydni’s  father was white she was chossen to act as the white slave owner’s wife in the play Unshackled.

1. Jackee Stang , Vice-President of Programming, High Times Media

 —-

1. Jackee Stang from her vantage point at High Times Media as Vice-President of Programming discusses how cannabis is accepted in California and the nation, now that it has been made legal to regulate both as medicine and as products made available to anyone over the age of 21.  High Times Media produced the Cannabis Cup in Santa Rosa this past weekend, which was only the second event in the nation to be licensed to sell cannabis products to anyone over the age of 21. After four decades of the magazine’s frontline reporting during the Drug War, women will now be at the table through the launch by Jackee Stang of the High Times Women’s Council within the company and the publication of is first edition of the Women of Weed Magazine in September.

About our Guest:  Jackee Stang serves as the VP of Programming at High Times Media, leading the charge on the mainstreaming of Cannabis content with a particular focus on New Media and Female driven content. Jackee hails from New England and Texas, where she spent most of her formative years, and where cannabis was stigmatized but omnipresent. In Houston she built a successful career in non-profit grant writing and event planning – raising millions of dollars, and putting to work thousands in underserved communities in east Texas. Jackee has worked as an award-winning producer for Bulletproof Nutrition and most recently launched the High Times Women’s Council – the first ever female focused think-tank within High Times, aimed at identifying, celebrating and elevating authentically female driven growth within the space. Jackee also hosts the High Times Green Room podcast, a long-form interview audio project designed to tell insider stories about cannabis culture – the stories most people never get to hear – until now.
