Monday, November 28, 2016: Protecting Health Justice, the Environment and Ourselves in a Time of Crisis and Fear

Remembering Jean Pauline

We remember feminist, anarchist and labor activist and organizer, Jean Pauline who died last week at age 95. A memorial is being planned for January to celebrate Jean's life.

Next up we interview Layidua Salazar on abortion and protecting reproductive rights.

Reproductive and women's health rights are certain to be under attack under a Trump/Pence White House and Republican controlled Congress. As Republicans have come to dominate state houses across the country, California remains a relative bright spot, but many women still are unable to access the wide range of services that exist. ACCESS Women's Health Justice and the National Network of Abortion Funds are among the organizations working to ensure that women can exercise their rights to have or not have children and receive the health care they choose. We speak with Layidua Salazar, board member of ACCESS Women's Health Justice. Check out their website for information and to sign up for ACCESS newsletter. For health questions call 1-800-376-4636 for English and 1-888-442-2237 for Spanish.
