#65: Luke Shaefer — Professor of Social Work, Public Policy Expert, and Author of "$2.00 a Day: Living on Almost Nothing in America"

In the early 2010s, a study was conducted across the U.S. to get a sense of the levels of poverty in the nation. Staggeringly, in the supposed “wealthiest nation on Earth,” 1.5 million households were living on $2.00 a day, including over 3 million children. These were families where people had jobs, often multiple jobs, working their hardest and longest, and still were unable to escape from this extreme poverty, despite doing everything in their power to “pull themselves up by the bootstraps.” Luke Shaefer was one of the conductors of this study and has dedicated his life to educating people about the effects and causes of extreme poverty in America. As the longtime Professor of Social Justice and Social Policy and associate dean for research and policy engagement at the University of Michigan's Gerald R. Ford School of Public Policy, Luke's work has been cited in the New York Times, Washington Post, The Economist, The Atlantic, and Los Angeles Times, and he has been featured on such programs as Marketplace and CNBC's Nightly Business Report. He compiled much of his research into the book $2.00 a Day: Living on Almost Nothing in America, co-authored by Kathryn Edin. The book was named one of the 100 Notable Books of 2015 by the New York Times Book Review and won the Hillman Prize for Book Journalism among other awards. Poverty is a full-time job and isn't something that just goes away when a worker clocks in for their job. Luke understands how the effects of poverty permeate every part of a person's life, and ultimately, how that affects our economy, society, and country as a whole. In a time when power is shifting in the labor market, this is something that desperately needs to be talked about, so with that...let's bring it in!

In this episode, we're talking about a uniquely American form of terrorism — violence at the abortion clinic. Our episode comes as Americans grapple with the acquittal of Kyle Rittenhouse on five counts in the wake of his killing two protestors and injuring a third last year in Kenosha, Wisconsin.  Meanwhile in Georgia, the fate of three men caught on camera killing Ahmaud Arbery has yet to be decided.  Many are concerned about whether there is a two-tiered system of justice in the United States.  We turn to the often overlooked violence at abortion clinics.  As the December oral arguments date for Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization case fast approaches, all eyes are on the Supreme Court. But we're wondering — what's happening at the on the ground, at clinics that provide abortions and reproductive health services where persistent, even daily violence against patients and providers goes overlooked and under-addressed?    Joining us to sort out these important matters are three special guests. Diane Derzis is a reproductive rights activist and the owner of Jackson Women's Health Organization, the clinic at the center of the case that will be heard at SCOTUS in December, and the only remaining abortion clinic in Mississippi. She is also the owner of several other clinics in the south.Dr. Monica McLemore is a professor of nursing at the University of California, San Francisco, where she is also the co-director of the Abortion Care Training Incubator for Outstanding Nurse Scholars. Her research at the intersection of nursing and public health and policy delves into abortion, birth, human sexuality and more from a reproductive justice lens. Frances Kissling is an activist in the fields of religion, reproduction, and women's rights. She is currently the President of the Center for Health, Ethics and Social Policy, and was President of Catholics for Choice from 1982 until 2007. She is a visiting professor at the Instituto de Investigaciones Filosóficas at UNAM, Mexico City. Rate and review “On the Issues with Michele Goodwin" to let us know what you think of the show!

What does ‘sexual citizenship' mean in practice for people with mobility impairments who may need professional support to engage in sexual activity? Sexual Citizenship and Disability: Understanding Sexual Support in Policy, Practice and Theory (Routledge, 2021) explores this subject through empirical investigation based on case studies conducted in four countries – Sweden, England, Australia and the Netherlands – and develops the abstract notion of ‘sexual citizenship' to make it practically relevant to disabled people, professionals in disability services and policy-makers. Through a cross-national approach, it demonstrates the variability of how sexual rights are understood and their culturally specific nature. It also shows how the personal is indeed political: states' different policy approaches change the outcomes for disabled people in terms of support to explore and express their sexualities. By proposing a model of sexual facilitation that can be used in policy development, to better cater to disabled service users' needs as well as furthering the theoretical understanding of sexual rights and sexual citizenship, this book will be of interest to professionals in disability services and policy-makers as well as academics and students working in the following subject areas: Disability Studies, Sociology, Social Policy, Sexuality Studies/Sexology, Social Work, Nursing, Occupational Therapy and Public Health. Julia Bahner is a postdoctoral fellow at the School of Social Work, Lund University, Sweden, and was formerly Marie Curie Individual Fellow at the Centre for Disability Studies, School of Sociology, University of Leeds, UK. She holds a PhD in social work and has worked extensively with disabled people's organisations, sexual rights organisations and disability service organisations to develop better policies and practices around sexuality, disability and support.

In this episode, we discuss Gender and Security in Africa: the Nigerian experience with Ruth Okugbeni, the Acting Executive Director at the CLEEN Foundation www.cleen.org.  Ruth's work focuses on improving the effectiveness of security and justice sector agencies through human rights-based approaches and improved accountability for better service delivery. She holds a Bachelor's Degree in Education from the University of Ibadan, a Master of Arts Degree in Development Studies with a major in Social Policy from the Erasmus University, Rotterdam, Netherlands. She is currently pursuing doctoral studies and research in Defence and Security Studies.  The discussion clarifies why women are underrepresented in the security sector and makes recommendations on what can be done differently.  Key insights from the discussion are that laws that promote gender discrimination were formulated during the colonial era. Therefore, as independent states, African nations must work to repeal those laws and take advantage of women and men's contributions in the security sector.

In 2005 the Guinness Brewery at Park Royal, West London closed after seven decades of production. Tim Strangleman spent the last six months of the Brewery's life working with a photographer to record in words and picture the site before it closed. Subsequent research revealed an incredibly rich story of corporate cultural change and the transformation of work and the workplace. Drawing on material from his 2019 book, Voices of Guinness: An Oral History of the Park Royal Brewery, Strangleman, Professor of Sociology, in the School of Social Policy, Sociology and Social Research, University of Kent, Canterbury, reflects on what that story tells us about work meaning, identity and organizational life in the second decade of the twenty-first century.

Thirty years ago this week, Anita Hill sat across an all-male, all-white Senate Judiciary Committee to testify that her boss, Supreme Court Justice nominee Clarence Thomas, had sexually harassed her. A historic moment that brought visibility to the issue of sexual harassment, Anita's bravery during the 1991 confirmation hearing set the stage for countless others to better understand and speak out against their own experiences of gender-based violence. Decades later, questions of how gender-based violence intersects with race and power remain as relevant as ever. On this special anniversary episode, Kimberlé and Luke Charles Harris, co-founder of the African American Policy Forum, reflect on their memory of being at the 1991 confirmation hearing and the lessons learned through Clarence Thomas' confirmation that inspired AAPF's birth.

As the debate over President Biden's sweeping “build back better” agenda continues in Washington, West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin hasn't been shy about laying out his demands, as Democratic leadership in the House and Senate and the White House bend over backwards to garner his and Arizona Senator Kyrsten Sinema's votes for reconciliation bill that's been moving through Congress. High on Senator Manchin's list: adding so-called work requirements to the newly expanded Child Tax Credit. In a September appearance on CNN's State of the Union, he derided parents who don't work outside the home, asking: “Don't you think, if we're going to help the children, that people should make some effort?”  Asked what he thought of the West Virginia Senator's remarks, Child Tax Credit champion and Ohio Senator Sherrod Brown responded as aptly as he did succinctly, declaring: “I think raising children is work.” Of course, so-called “work requirements”—the policy of using survival benefits as a tool to compel paid work outside the home—is not a new idea. Indeed they were the centerpiece of Donald Trump's agenda to dismantle the safety net for the better part of his one-term presidency.  But the notion of so-called work requirements dates back a lot farther than Trump—and even a lot farther back than Ronald Reagan's racist myth of the welfare queen. Indeed, as a recent report from the Center of the Study of Social Policy documents in painstaking depth, the long and sordid history of work requirements in U.S. income policy has roots that trace back centuries to the slave trade. So given the Senator from West Virginia's continued interest in keeping work requirements alive, instead of turning the page on this kind of policymaking-by-dog-whistle and ensuring that all families have what they need to thrive—we at Off-Kilter thought it might be helpful to take a deep dive into the racist roots of work requirements. Joining Rebecca for this week's show: Aisha Nyandoro, chief executive officer of Springboard to Opportunity and architect of the Magnolia Mother's Trust; Jeremie Greer, cofounder and co-executive director of Liberation in a Generation; and Elisa Minoff, senior policy analyst at the Center for the Study of Social Policy and the author of “The Racist Roots of Work Requirements.”  Dig into Elisa Minoff's full report, “The Racist Roots of Work Requirements” For more on the history and consequences of the 1996 welfare law, check out “TANF Policies Reflect Racist Legacy of Cash Assistance” by Ife Floyd Read “Work Requirements Would Undermine the CTC's Impacts on Racial and Economic Justice” by the Children's Defense Fund's Emma Mehrabi

Paul brings deep insights into climate change drawing on psycho-social thinking. This conversation explores climate anxiety, climate denial and climate delay, and how we as ‘moderns' find it very difficult to escape deeply embedded ideas that entrap us. Paul relates this thinking back to our founding myths from Judeo-Christianity that throws humanity outside of the Edenic garden, and outside of nature, and is always looking for external salvation.  He reflects that “Us moderns live in a kind of cocoon, continuing in our everyday routines, of living in our comforts, which means that we are able to live in this world, where because of mass media and now social media we know about all these terrible things going on and yet somehow or other remain unaffected” The conversation moves to how to engage with climate change and the anxieties it raises, and at the same time retain ‘radical hope'.  Finally Simon and Paul reflect with caution,  on some real changes taking place. Bio: Paul Hoggett is a psychoanalytic psychotherapist and is Emeritus Professor of Social Policy at UWE, Bristol where, with Simon Clarke, he was a Director of the Centre for Psycho-Social Studies. In 2000, with Larry Gould, he was founding editor of the journal Organisational and Social Dynamics, a forum for those working within the Tavistock Group Relations tradition. In 2012, with Adrian Tait, he founded the Climate Psychology Alliance (CPA) and was its first chair. He recently edited a collection of CPA research papers, Climate Psychology: On Indifference to Disaster (2019, Palgrave Macmillan). Previous books have included Politics, Identity and Emotion (2009, Paradigm) and Partisans in an Uncertain World (1992, Free Association Books).

Then, you'll hear about this week's podcast picks being featured on our newsletter.About our curator, Maribel Quezada Smith, from her website:A few years ago, I discovered I was living my life for other people instead of myself. That's when I started down this journey of self-discovery and empowerment. This journey confirmed a fear I had long avoided confronting, the fear that I didn't completely belong anywhere, and I had to choose a cultural "side" to succeed in life. Since then, thanks to a decent amount of soul searching, I have realized I no longer have to choose a cultural side, I simply have to embrace my own journey as a Mexican immigrant woman living in the United States, who loves Hip Hop and Cumbia. All of this self-discovery combined with my 15-plus years as a professional in video production and podcasting, inspired my passion for creating stories with meaning in order to satisfy our human desire for purpose and connection. (Which is how my podcast DIFERENTE was born!) Today, I help entrepreneurs, startups and growing brands build deeper connections with their ideal customers through meaningful video and audio content.This week's interview: Arielle Vetro. Here's her bio: I'm a Canadian-Italian writer and podcast producer based in London, England. I'm passionate about cooking, community organizing and exploring the mystifying psychology of people who "just don't have a sweet tooth". I moved to the U.K. in 2017 to pursue a MSc in Social Policy and Planning from the London School of Economics. After graduating, I worked in the urban design and innovation field researching the social and cultural impacts of Smart City technologies. I honed an approach to city innovation that places people - and their real needs - squarely in the centre.

Inclusivi-TALKS Sustainability:  A Podcast About Creativity, Health, Equity, and Kindness

In episode one of our podcast with Christopher Bell, Christopher talks about his path to understanding white supremacy and explains his use of the term white superiority. He talks about his childhood and goals for the future. Christopher C. Bell Jr. was born a black male in the mid-1930s, and raised in Campostella, a small, poor, Negro suburb of hard-wired, racially segregated Norfolk, Virginia; one of the most progressive cities in Virginia. He luckily dodged many of the pitfalls that endangered many of his friends as he escaped into Boy Scouting and reading. Chris attended Virginia State University, obtained a degree in Chemistry, and upon graduation was commissioned a Second Lieutenant in the U.S. Army. Chris served twenty (20), bitter-sweet years in the army and retired as a Major. Twelve (12) of those years he served overseas and most of the time his duties required him to serve elbow to elbow with the natives of the country concerned. He served 2 years in Germany; 5 years in France; 2 1/2 years in Korea; 1 year in Vietnam; and 2 years in Ethiopia. Chris credits his foreign living and travelling with opening vistas of sensitivity and awareness in his “made in America” mind, and moved him toward more self-examination and critical thinking about things he had always taken for granted. While in the army, he completed a Masters of Education (Ed.M.) degree from Fitchburg State College in Massachusetts. After retirement from the military, Chris resumed his graduate studies. He earned a Certificate of Advance Graduate Studies (CAGS) in Administration, Supervision, and Social Policy from Harvard University Graduate School of Education, and a Doctor of Education Degree (Ed.D.) in Organizational Development from Boston University Graduate School of Education. Dr. Bell's employment history includes; managing and supervising Job training programs in the U.S. Department of Labor, mid-level management positions in the District of Columbia School System, and serving as a management analyst at the U.S. Department of Education Dr. Bell's studies of the works of scholars and his own observations regarding the workings of the societal structures that surround human beings have led him to conclude that one of the root causes of what he defines as the White Superiority Syndrome is the “White male God and White Male Savior myth” promoted by Christianity. This White Superiority Syndrome promotes a feeling of racial superiority in White people and prompts them to build a white racist culture. This White Superiority Syndrome promotes a sense of racial inferiority in Black people and prompts them toward behavioral patterns of self-abuse, low self-expectations, and self-disparagement. Dr. Bell has concluded that racism is an inherent feature of the” White male God and White male savior myth” that is taught by Christianity, and he has committed himself to explain this problem to all who will listen. He teaches that black people must free themselves from believing in this “white god, white savior myth” if they are to ever see themselves as beautiful, and as competent, and as deserving of life's treasures as they imagine white people to be. Other black educators, psychologists, and thinkers have written tangentially about the need for black people to stop believing in this “white god and white savior myth” in order to authentically feel equal to white people, but most of them have gone unheeded. Dr. Bell dares to write “right on.” He trusts that his small contribution in his book “The Belief Factor and the White Superiority Syndrome” will help the “new” theological change-makers of the twenty-first century to begin their work in earnest. www.drccbellbooks.com www.drchrisbell.com.
