Monday, October 6, 2014 Show: Challenging Anti-Semitism and Internalized Oppression

This Monday we look  at an issue that affects us all;  how internalize oppression prevents us from healing and  keeps us from being the best activists we can be.  In her new book "Hope Into Practice : Jewish Women Choosing Justice Despite Our Fears," activist, author and teacher Penny Rosenwasser  shows how working through internalized oppression, we can link personal healing with social justice—enabling us to fight more effectively to change systems that are immoral and unfair. 

Penny Rosenwasser takes on the most explosive issues today—racism and anti-Semitism, victimization and privilege, and Jewish politics around Israel and Palestine and  makes the crucial point that Jewish liberation is interconnected with the liberation of all oppressed people, whether they are African-American, undocumented immigrants, queer or transgender, homeless, or Palestinian.   Join us on KPFA's women's Magazine on Monday October 6th from  1-2pm as we  talk with Penny Rosenwasser and find hope thru practice. 

We'll be offering Hope into Practice as a thank you gift for your pledge to KPFA during this hour. I hope many of you will donate to show your support for feminist programming and progressive, community-controlled radio.  But whether you can give or not, please don't miss this hour of great conversation and stirring footage.

Listen to entire show. 59:50 min.
