After a breakfast  the voting begins at 11 AM.  According tot the Party website, “AD Delegates to the Democratic State Central Committee (DSCC) are responsible for planning and attending informational meetings throughout the region and working with other DSCC delegates throughout California to represent their community.”

About our Guest: Mary Watts recently ran  for Santa Rosa City Council in the first election by districts in the city history. Though she was unsuccessful in her bid for the Council seat, she continues her community work as Deputy Director for the Community Action Partnership (CAP) in the county of Sonoma.  She is a candidate to be a Democratic Party Assembly District Delegate and Executive Board to the Democratic State Central Committee (DSCC) of California.

Why, what does all this mean? by Elaine B. Holtz

—-

1.  Therese Mughannam and 2. Lois Pearlman talk with Elaine about the National Sabeel Conference in which they participated yesterday on, “Defending Our Children from Palestine to the USA.”  The Conference was sponsored by Friends of Sabeel North America (FOSNA) and the North Coast Coalition for Palestine, of which Therese and Lois are members. Therese and Lois recount how they came to be active in expressing these concerns, not only of the harm being done to children in Palestine by the armed conflict but also in Yemen and other hot spots around the world, in in our own country and at its borders with the migrants with their children fleeing armed conflict, in which the USA has played a military role, and being detained in private prisons contracted by Homeland Security or tear-gassed.  The budget prioritizing National Defense has resulted in the exponential growth of homelessness in the United States, which includes families of workers who are not making even a living wage from their employers.  This begs the question,do we as a nation’s people really Care of our Future Growing in our Children?

About our Guest: Therese Mughannam is a Palestinian American, born in Jerusalem Palestine months before her country was partitioned by the UN in 1948 and over half of it given to the Jewish people to create the state of Israel. Like hundreds of thousands of Palestinians, Therese’s Christian family fled the war in Palestine and ended up in Jordan for the next ten years, until they came to America. Therese is a human rights activist, telling the story of Palestinians from a personal perspective and standing up for the rights of all humans who are oppressed.

About our Guest:   Lois Pearlman is a theater artist, writer, singer and political activist. She is a founding member of North Coast Coalition for Palestine and the Pegasus Theater Company, and “chief chicken soup and matzo ball maker” for the Russian River Jewish Community. She recently presented a workshop about Jewish support for Palestine at a NorCal FOSNA conference and performs her solo show Last of the Red Hot Tenants in and outsidethe Bay Area.

2. Sabra Briere and 3. Kathy Johnson share how they came to be active in the group Indivisible – Sonoma County Chapter that realy came to life after the election of 2016 of Donald Trump.  The mission of Indivisible Sonoma County is to mobilize and organize people locally by connecting them with the political processes to fight for equality and justice.Sabra and Kathy and other volunteers of Indivisible telephoned folks, especially those who have not voted in awhile, to encourage them to register and to vote on key issues. Those districts that were once solid Republican in Orange County, for example, shifted to elect Democratic candidates who campaigned to resist Trump’s agenda, much through the efforts of Indivisible calls from its chapters across the nation.

About our Guest:  Sabra Briere a former Ann Arbor, Michigan, resident, moved to Sonoma County last year. Prior to moving here she was a member of the Ann Arbor  City Council. She immediately became involved in the community and joined Indivisible Sonoma County at their first general meeting in January, 2017 and currently sits on their Advisory Council. She is active member of the local Democratic Party, and volunteers for the City. Sabra is passionate about free speech, education, the environment, and civic responsibilities and brings her energy and her insights to our local issues.

About our Guest:  Kathy Johnson retired after 32 years of service for the Social Security Administration and although political activism is fairly new to her she has always tried to be an engaged citizen and voter. She has been an active volunteer in her church and for several local non-profits but in November of 2016 her focus changed and she saw that political action was the best way to influence change and became part of Indivisible.
