Care of our Future Growing in our Children

Featuring Guests

1. Therese Mughannam,   Member, North Coast Coalition for Palestine

 2. Lois Perlman,  Member, North Coast Coalition for Palestine

Elaine began the show with this Poem:

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.

1. Becky Hobbs talks of her journey in music and to the Oklahoma Music Hall of Fame, which also led her to produce a musical in honor of her 5th Great Grandmother Nanyehi, also known as Nancy Ward, of the Cherokee Nation, who was honored as a great warrior woman but who spoke out for peace between her and the new European settlers in the 1700s. Listen to Becky help bring Nanyehi alive as a messenger of peace for today beginning with the women, as Elaine plays 5 of the songs from the album Nanyehi: Beloved Woman of the Cherokee. Perhaps a listener can help bring the musical produced by Becky Hobbs and Nick Sweet, Nanyehi – the Story of Nancy Ward, to stage in the North Bay?

About our Guest: Becky Hobbs, “The Beckaroo,” as she is called by her friends, was born and raised in Bartlesville, Oklahoma. She is a citizen of the Cherokee Nation. She started playing piano and writing songs when she was nine years old and in high school formed “The Four faces of Eve,” the first all-female rock band in the state of Oklahoma. Becky has performed in over 40 countries, including nine in Africa. Her songs have been recorded by Alabama, Conway Twitty (#1 hit I Want To Know You Before We Make Love), George Jones, Loretta Lynn, Emmylou Harris, Glen Campbell, Wanda Jackson, John Anderson, Janie Fricke, Lacy J Dalton, Moe Bandy, Shelly West, Helen Reddy, Shirley Bassey, Jane Oliver, Ken Mellons, Demi Lovato, and others. She is the co-writer of Alabama’s hit, Angels Among Us, which has been used by many charities throughout the world, including St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. In 2011, Becky’s CD, “Nanyehi-Beloved Woman of the Cherokee” was released. It contains 17 songs written for a musical, based on the life of her 5th-great grandmother, Nancy Ward (1738-1822). She co-produced with Nick Sweet the musical Nanyehi – the Story of Nancy Ward. Becky was inducted into the Oklahoma Music Hall of Fame on Oct. 16, 2015.

2. Madeleine Keegan O’Connell describes the start of YWCA in Sonoma County in 1975 with noticing women and children sleeping in cars and discovering the cause to be domestic abuse and even violence. The need for a chapter of YWCA was recognized and the national YWCA agreed.  YWCA provides a 24 hour confidential hotline at (707) 546-1234 and care for domestic abuse victims, including a safe-house in the area. October is Domestic Abuse Awareness month. Madeleine announces the screening premier of the film Power & Control : Domestic Violence in America at Summerfield Cinemas in Santa Rosa on October 25th. See the YWCASC website for other events and activities.

About our Guest: Madeleine Keegan O’Connell has been the Chief Executive Officer of the YWCA in Sonoma County since 2012. The YWCA has been the county’s domestic violence service provider since 1975. She brings to her team a unique for-profit business 28-year career in the marketing and public relations arena of community banking which spans two coasts. She has made it her personal mission to raise awareness of YWCA’s work in the local community utilizing all her media skills. Madeleine has been recognized by the North Bay Business Journal’s “Nonprofit Leadership Award” in 2016 as well as a “2017 Women in Business” Award. Her name appears on the Press Democrat’s list of “30 Women You Should Know in Sonoma County” and she has been honored by a “Special Certificate of Congressional Recognition” by Congressmen Mike Thompson and Jared Huffman for her work with YWCA Sonoma County.

Madeleine and her husband, Kevin, reside in Santa Rosa along with their boys, Johnny, age 8 and Nicholas, age 6. Challenged with a diagnosis of Stage Two breast cancer in 2014, Madeleine reminds each of us that there was a 20% chance of the lump she found being malignant, which it was – contrasted to the national and local statistic that one in four families will be affected by domestic violence – that’s 25% of the people we all know.
