Following the fall of Roe v. Wade, Michigan women face an uncertain future due to a 1931 "zombie law " on the books that would criminalize abortion. Mobilizing into action are a pro-choice mother-daughter duo, Shelly and Hailey, and an army of volunteer escorts at Northland Family Planning who protect clinic patients from armed protesters or "Anti's." Due to Michigan being an open-carry state, the escorts wear bodycams to monitor the" Anti's" activity. Lead Escort Marie and other volunteers mobilize to get enough signatures for a ballot initiative to amend outdated laws -- and keep abortion legal in Michigan.Featuring interviews with Michigan A..G.

This week the California legislature passed a bill to create a government panel that would set wages for fast food workers in the state.  They would be able to set hourly wages of up to $22/hour.  Fast food operators are mobilizing against the bill saying it will drive up operating and labor costs and lead to price increases for consumers.  Unions on the other hand are praising the decision and other states are keeping an eye on the developments with a possibility of adopting similar legislation.  Heather Haddon, restaurants reporter at the WSJ, joins us for what to know.   Next, we are increasingly seeing anxious and depressed teenagers use multiple psychiatric drugs, a practice called polypharmacy.  The problem is that many of the medications might not be tested in adolescents or tested for use together.  Often this path starts with drugs used to treat ADHD and other medication gets added on to treat side effects or dull the effects of some drugs.  A study from 2020, found that over 40% of people ages 2 to 24 who were prescribed ADHD drugs were also prescribed at least one other medication for mood and behavioral disorders.  Matt Richtel, reporter at the NY Times, joins us for more.See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Community schools are a big asset to communities whose schools struggle to meet the needs of all its youth. But it takes time and effort to start to see change. A lot of time and effort.   This week on the podcast, I'm talking with Emily Woods, the head of education for the Richard K. Lubin Family Foundation and long-time policy advocate. She shares what it really looks like to start and grow an effort to grow a community school and how to get policy makers involved.   As a former private school turned public school teacher, Emily saw the disparity that exists between the resources available. But she was able to take her private school knowledge into the public schools, then eventually into advocacy, to really make an impact.   In this episode, she shares how leaders need to shift their thinking about how they address student needs, why your community effort may not work, where the support needs to come from, and more. She even shares a breakdown of action steps to help communities mobilize. Have a notepad handy!   About Emily Woods: Emily Woods currently serves as Head of Education for the Richard K. Lubin Family Foundation. Previously, she taught as Adjunct Lecturer in Education at the University of Massachusetts Boston and was a Boston Public School teacher and Senior Co-Trainer in the BPS New Teacher Development Program. She has a PhD in education policy and leadership from the University of Massachusetts, Boston, an MEd in elementary education from Boston University, and a BA from Bowdoin College. Her research focuses on school districts that have addressed the adoption of community school policy, and her professional focus is on helping urban districts move beyond a site-by-site community school strategy to a citywide, community-owned initiative.   Jump in the Conversation: [2:05] - Where the path began for Emily [3:00] - Community school label - what it is and its importance [4:13] - How community schools are like smartphones [6:59] - Even before pandemic there was big disparity between school types [7:50] - Schools can't exist in a vacuum  [8:36] - Elements we need to make school reform sustainable on a big scale [11:15] - There are different ways to get things moving  [12:05] - We need the right lens and a groundswell [12:30] - How data comes into the picture [14:35] - Groundswell can only happen if community members are in support of initiative [15:01] - How to help communities to mobilize [17:52] - Action steps to start with [21:00] - Turbo Time [23:58] - It takes a long time to start to see change [24:35] - Emily's magic wand [26:17] - Maureen's Takeaways Links & Resources Lessons in Chemistry by Bonnie Garmus Joy Dryfoos on Community Schools Linda Darling-Hammond Jeannie Oakes Email Maureen Maureen's TEDx: Changing My Mind to Change Our Schools The Education Evolution Facebook: Follow Education Evolution Twitter: Follow Education Evolution LinkedIn: Follow Education Evolution EdActive Collective Maureen's book: Creating Micro-Schools for Colorful Mismatched Kids Micro-school feature on Good Morning America The Micro-School Coalition Facebook: The Micro-School Coalition LEADPrep

After decades of authoritarian rule by the Barisan Nasional coalition, a new alliance, Pakatan Harapan, was voted in in 2018, marking Malaysia's first-ever transfer of federal power through elections in what was widely heralded as the start of a democratic transition. But that new government collapsed within two years, and Malaysian politics has remained unstable ever since. With elections likely to be called soon, what accounts for the remarkable turbulence in Malaysian politics, and what does it say about how regimes are remade? Joining Dr Natali Pearson on SSEAC Stories, Professor Meredith Weiss discusses the state of politics in Malaysia, reflecting on the promises, both fulfilled and broken, brought about by GE14, and, looking to the future, considering ways for Malaysia to continue moving forward. About Meredith Weiss: Meredith Weiss is Professor of Political Science in the Rockefeller College of Public Affairs & Policy at the University at Albany, SUNY. In several books—most recently, The Roots of Resilience: Party Machines and Grassroots Politics in Southeast Asia (Cornell, 2020), and the co-authored Mobilizing for Elections: Patronage and Political Machines in Southeast Asia (Cambridge, 2022)—and a dozen edited or co-edited volumes, she addresses issues of social mobilization, civil society, and collective identity; electoral politics and parties; and regime change and institutional reform in Southeast Asia, especially Malaysia and Singapore.

Anastasia Shesterinina begins Mobilizing in Uncertainty: Collective Identities and War in Abkhazia (Cornell University Press, 2021) with an account of Georgian troops crossing into eastern Abkhazia, in the Southern Caucasus region adjacent Russia, on August 14, 1992. Thus the war that is the book's subject began. Yet, people didn't know it at the time. In fact, the question on people's lips was: is this a war? The answer to the question was: yes. But the uncertainty to which the question gave voice led Shesterinina to the questions motivating this book, namely: how do ordinary people deal with uncertainty in civil war? How do they decide whether and in what way to mobilise, and for whom? On this episode of New Books in Interpretive Political and Social Science Anastasia Shesterinina discusses her answers to these questions. Along the way, she also reflects on the inadequacies of theories that underestimate or overlook the uncertainty that pervades wartime conditions, particularly in wars' earliest days; on the conduct and ethics of interview and ethnographic research in post-war settings; and, on the relevance of her research on Abkhazia for our understanding of the war in Ukraine today—and on why comparison of the two is, for her, not just an intellectually or politically interesting exercise.

Dear FoundHer...
Mobilizing a Movement in One Month, with Kitty Brandtner, Founder of March Fourth

Dear FoundHer...

“Who's coming with me to Washington?” Kitty Brandtner asked, the day after the July 4th mass shooting in Highland Park, Illinois. Kitty had been attending a similar event nearby with her young family when a man with an assault weapon opened fire on families and parade goers. In a mix of grief and fury, Kitty took to social media and nearly overnight, she mobilized a team of citizens who were also ready to turn their grief into action. The March Fourth movement was born. Within just one week, volunteers planned a rally attended by 500, and organized meetings in Washington, D.C. with lawmakers with one clear mission: To ban assault weapons nationally. Survivors from Highland Park were joined from families of victims from Uvalde, TX to demand action from our government. The noise from this effort resulted in the House of Representatives passing HR 1808. The next stop is the United States Senate following the summer recess. But the work of March Fourth is far from over. Money is still needed to keep the message loud, clear, and consistent until the bill becomes a law. A big part of this is maintaining media presence and driving awareness. March Fourth has also made great efforts to run interference between the families who wish to grieve privately and the media who have violated that privacy. According to Kitty, this is not a political issue, but a human one. Those interested in supporting can spread the word via social media by following and sharing the the information from @march_fourth_. Quotes • “It is this incredible group of mostly women, but also men. It's not just moms and it's not just parents—it's people from all walks of life. But the common theme is that we don't believe that we should feel unsafe going to a grocery store, concert, parade, sending our kids to school, etc. It shouldn't be this way.”(14:19-14:43 | Kitty) • “Part of what makes this easy is we only have one goal, there's no convoluted six-step plan. Our goal is to federally ban assault weapons and to do it right now. That's it.” (16:45-16:59 | Kitty) • “When there's a will, there's a way. If something matters and you put all your energy into it, you're going to make it happen. There's no alternative.” (27:00-27:09 | Kitty) Connect with Kitty Brandtner: Instagram | http://www.instagram.com/march_fourth_ Please don't forget to rate, comment, and subscribe to Dear FoundHer on Apple, Spotify, or wherever you listen to podcasts!

Jamil talks with Victor Gry, from Kiev to understand what is happening on the ground there. See more on their YouTube channel https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WY8sDvZdWEA What is your background? Is it a logical background for what you have been doing up until now? Hi Jamil Thank you for the opportunity to communicate with you. Russia started a war against the civilian population of Ukraine. At the moment, hostilities on the side of Russia continue for the seventh day. And my experience as a journalist tells me about the need to tell what is happening in my country to the citizens of Europe. Russia attacked Ukraine on February 24 at 5:00 am, when the civilian population was sleeping, unaware of Putin's terrible plans. Of course, today, the second of March, the key to victory is the united actions of Ukrainians in the struggle for their freedom. It is understandable and pleasant that we receive support from the European Union and the understanding that Ukraine can become a full-fledged member of the community. Ukrainians proved their masculinity, unbreakable temper and will to win not by word but by deed. Your communication tower was struck late last night. What's the current state of affairs where you are in Kyiv? Ukraine is being invaded throughout the country. You probably know that the President of Belarus, Lukashenko, adopted a number of amendments to the constitution of Belarus in an emergency referendum, which now makes it possible to place nuclear weapons on the territory of the country. Two dictators, Putin and Lukashenko, should be brought before the tribunal, the court in The Hague intends to investigate the crimes of the Russian army in Ukraine. Their actions are a direct threat today not only to Ukraine, but also to Europe. You can observe the rhetoric of some of the leaders of the Kremlin towards Europe. From Belarus, fighter jets are flying towards us, bombing not only military bases, but also civilians, who are forced to hide in the basements of their houses from bomb attacks. One of these attacks was intended to leave the country without television, one rocket was aimed at destroying the TV tower in Kyiv, and the second rocket bombed the Babi Yar Holocaust memorial complex. Now the connection is established, the blow was inflicted on the building of the control room near the TV tower. The building where people worked. What is happening in Ukraine, you can see directly broadcasts on YouTube channels. It is pleasant to realize that volunteers are coming to Ukraine from 16 countries of the world who are ready to fight shoulder to shoulder with the Ukrainian people against the aggressor. Their total number has already exceeded 1000 people. You organized a volunteer organization. What is your organization doing right now? Fighting? Mobilizing people? How's it going? Volunteer organizations work in Kiev, and my son is organizing in one of them. As a journalist, I keep in touch with them. All forces have been gathered to fight to prevent the capture of the Capital. The territorial defense, created from the men of Kyiv, is designed to prevent looting in the city during the curfew. A very active mobilization of people, the civilian population helps the military and local activists from the territorial defense in cooking, there are volunteer centers for cooking and providing food. We need help to purchase and provide food, essential goods to everyone who is now on the defensive and in the mobile volunteer groups in Kyiv. my mob Viber WhatsApp +38 050 831 24 02 email victor@neolit.net --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/crypto-hipster-podcast/support
