Our Featured Guests

1.  Janeen Murray gives us an update on GoLocal and why buying from locally owned companies is beneficial in keeping four times as many dollars circulating in the community as would be if buying from a corporation-owned business, for our health in eating locally grown foods, and for our environment. The association of 400 participating locally owned businesses known as GoLocal publish their services on the website of GoLocal and in its Made Local Magazine.  Janeen also talks about the work of the Sonoma County Food System Alliance promoting local sustainable food production, “in which local growers and processors are economically viable, the physical environment is maintained, and consumers have access to healthy, affordable food.”

About our Guest: Janeen Murray started out as a junior high and high school teacher for several years, then for the next decade she managed Operations and Marketing at two local companies. She served 10 years as GO LOCAL’s Co-Manager and Board Member, she now serves as Executive Director. She also manages Sustaining Technologies, LLC, and both organizations work together to provide marketing consulting and resources for locally owned businesses, and to remind the public the importance of going local. Janeen also serves as a member of the Sonoma County Food System Alliance and plays accordion in the Hubbub Club street band.

Our Featured Guests

1. Kayla Martinez and 2. Vicki Trapalis talk about the work of Love Without Borders for Refugees in Need and their attraction to this project.  Kayla recounts how as an airline attendant she encountered refugee camps first around Frankfurt in 2015, Germany and then in Greece.  These refugees, including many families with children, had fled war-torn countries like Syria, Iraq, and Afghanistan and the dangers they encounter as they make the journey, from their countries, to Europe, by foot and inflatable boats.  Through social media Kayla was able to broadcast her mission and Love Without Borders was founded in 2016 as a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. Vicki learned of Kayla’s project and took an upaid leave of absence from  her job in San Francisco to visit and work alongside Kayla in a northern Greek refugee camp at Nea Kavala.They describe the camp’s squalid conditions of tents and outhouses. On Sunday October 27,2 – 4 pm, a Benefit Concert will be given for Love Without Borders at the Arlene Francis Center in Santa Rosa.

About our Guest: Kayra Martinez has made it her mission to help refugees who have arrived in Greece after fleeing from their war-torn countries. Kayra’s mission began over three years ago, after she volunteered to help refugees arriving in Frankfurt, Germany, where she is based as a Flight Attendant. Her volunteer work in Germany eventually led her to Greece, where she visited the Nea Kavala camp in northern Greece in 2015. “When I got to Greece, I saw the tragic conditions in which refugees were living, and I realized I needed to do more,” said Kayra. After that trip, Kayra founded the nonprofit Love Without Borders – For Refugees In Need, which has allowed her to provide housing, teach English and offer art sessions to thousands of refugees. Definitely an ordinary woman doing an extraordinary thing for humanity.

Reflections by Elaine B. Holtz, Co-Producer and Host, Women’s Spaces

Announcements (Click for section below)

Elaine B.Holtz first announces the Peace & Justice Center of Sonoma County Peacemaker Awards, to be awarded Saturday November 9, 2019 at the Redwood Cafe at a Benefit Concert for the Peace & Justice Center. She then reads a poem of hers called Why, What Does All This Mean? and a poem by Dr. Dorothy Law Nolte called Children Learn What They Live.

What Does All This Mean? by Elaine B. Holtz

A child sat by a lake one day, asking what does this all mean?
Who am I? Where am I going? How do I fit into the scheme?
I sat down beside him, looked into his eyes,
And saw the reflections of so many whys

I’ve, too, questioned, my child, there’s so much to say,
But in all my searching and knowing, [ can’t show you the way.
I can only try to explain what I see.
Maybe you can show me, how it should be?

You see, life has many a game.
The hardest to play is the one for fame.
When we look for fame, we look for power.
In this quest, you might say, man has wasted many a life, many an hour;
Are we all so ant-like and insecure,
That for fame and power so much we endure?

The game of war, it’s not hard to understand –
It’s just fighting and killing, man to man.
What is hard to understand, are the men who are willing.
They fight In the name of pride and nation,.

PRIDE & NATION, my God!
I see no reason for this frustration.
The amazing, yet saddest part is
All wars are fought in the name of PEACE.
So you see my dear child – I too ask why.

Children Learn What They Live
by Dorothy Law Nolte, Ph.D.

If children live with criticism, they learn to condemn.
If children live with hostility, they learn to fight.
If children live with fear, they learn to be apprehensive.
If children live with pity, they learn to feel sorry for themselves.
If children live with ridicule, they learn to feel shy.
If children live with jealousy, they learn to feel envy.
If children live with shame, they learn to feel guilty.
If children live with encouragement, they learn confidence.
If children live with tolerance, they learn patience.
If children live with praise, they learn appreciation.
If children live with acceptance, they learn to love.
If children live with approval, they learn to like themselves.
If children live with recognition, they learn it is good to have a goal.
If children live with sharing, they learn generosity.
If children live with honesty, they learn truthfulness.
If children live with fairness, they learn justice.
If children live with kindness and consideration, they learn respect.
If children live with security, they learn to have faith in themselves and
in those about them.
If children live with friendliness, they learn the world is a nice place in
which to live.

2. Dr. Harriet Fraad discusses the implications of deeper systemic problems with male superiority and capitalism in the case of Jeffrey Epstein and his sex-trafficking of young girls to the rich and powerful including presidents and princes.Dr. Fraad looks at the middle class beginnings of Jeffrey Epstein and his ascent to a life of luxury with his ability to ingratiate himself to make ever higher and more lucrative connections. Dr. Fraad describes the raising of males in our strongly matriarchal led households and in our schools that tends to limit the emotional expression of boys to anger, sports and sex, while denying the boys needs for tenderness, comfort, emotional care and empathy that cannot be admitted for fear of shame of failure to live up to the learned identity of an American male.  Dr. Fraad believes paid paternity leaves and free daycare would help the families better address the nurturing of boys and allow the tender expressions of males as fathers.

About our Guest:   Dr. Harriet Fraad is a mental health Counselor and Hypnotherapist in private practice in New York City. She speaks regularly and writes about the intersecting crises in US relationships personal life, politics and economics. She was a founding member of the Second Wave women’s movement and has remained an activist for her entire life. She appears regularly on the radio for Economic Update, The Julianna Forlano Morning show, MK Mendoza, and Women’s Spaces.

Accomplishments this Week in Women’s History:

Frances Perkins: (born Fannie Coralie Perkins; April 10, 1880[1][2] – May 14, 1965) was an American sociologist and workers-rights advocate who served as the U.S. Secretary of Labor from 1933 to 1945, the longest serving in that position, and the first woman appointed to the U.S. Cabinet. As a loyal supporter of her friend, Franklin D. Roosevelt, she helped pull the labor movement into the New Deal coalition. She and Interior Secretary Harold L. Ickes were the only original members of the Roosevelt cabinet to remain in office for his entire presidency.
During her term as Secretary of Labor, Perkins executed many aspects of the New Deal, including the Civilian Conservation Corps, the Public Works Administration and its successor the Federal Works Agency, and the labor portion of the National Industrial Recovery Act. With the Social Security Act she established unemployment benefits, pensions for the many uncovered elderly Americans, and welfare for the poorest Americans. She pushed to reduce workplace accidents and helped craft laws against child labor. Through the Fair Labor Standards Act, she established the first minimum wage and overtime laws for American workers, and defined the standard forty-hour work week. She formed governmental policy for working with labor unions and helped to alleviate strikes by way of the United States Conciliation Service. Perkins dealt with many labor questions during World War II, when skilled labor was vital and women were moving into formerly male jobs.
