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.
