Granito is an expression of the indigenous people of Guatemala...none of us can do it alone, each must put in their granito, their tiny grain of sand.  Direct descendants of the ancient Maya, the indigenous of Guatemala make up 40% of the population.  With the help of the U.S. government, as many of 200,000 of them and their supporters, the future leaders of Guatemala, were masacred in the early 1980s.

Women, Money and Em(power)ment: Taking Responsibility for Finances; Taking Control of Destiny

Historically, women were not permitted to manage finances. Today, most women feel they lack sufficient knowledge to take personal responsibility for their financial future.  By abdicating financial responsibility to a parent, spouse, or financial planner, women give away their power: power to create the life of their choosing, maintain autonomy in the golden years, and have the resources to change the world through meaningful ventures.

A discussion on the crisis of white masculinity

Quite a few white men are having more than a bad day... Is ridiculing them the best we can do? A conversation with Dr. Randy Blazak on the crisis of white masculinity and on responding to it in other ways than from a position of intellectual superiority.

Dr. Blazak is an associate Professor of Sociology at Portland State University and Director of the Hate Crime Research Network. He is a prolific writer and works with white supremacists in prison settings.

We also spoke with Barbara McCullough Jones, Executive Director at the Q Center, about efforts to enter into a dialogue with pastors from the Evangelical Mars Hill Church, an anti-Gay outfit which recently moved to SE Portland, a predominantly liberal neighborhood of Portland, OR.
