Bayard Rustin is perhaps one of the most understated leaders of the Civil Rights Movement. He helped with the formation of the Congress of Racial Equality (CORE) in 1942, which was conceived as a pacifist organization based on the writings of Henry David Thoreau, and modeled after Mahatma Ghandi’s non-violent resistance against British rule in India. Bayard Rustin would devote his life to the non violent pursuit of equal rights for all.

Charles Eisenstein: "The More Beautiful World Our Hearts Know is Possible"

program date: 
Fri, 02/14/2014
In a time of social and ecological crisis, what can we as individuals do to make the world a better place? In his The More Beautiful World our Hearts Know is Possible, Charles Eisenstein submits that the old worldview of Separation must fall away, to be replaced by a new worldview of Inter-being, and a radically different understanding of cause and effect. He explores how the more beautiful world becomes possible with the recognition that we are all connected and that our small, personal choices bear unsuspected transformational power. Eisenstein is interviewed by host Stephanie Potter as part of KBOO's special programming for Valentine's Day, "For the Love of a Better World."

Thomas Linzey speech at Community Rights PDX anti-GMO campaign event in Portland, Sept. 2013

program date: 
Fri, 10/18/2013
The speaker is one of the main proponents of a growing movement to curtail the "rights" and destructive practices of corporations at a local, grassroots level. Linzey started the Community Environmental Legal Defense Fund in Pennsylvania working for clients trying to stop factory hog farms from moving into their area and similar environmental issues. He soon found his work stymied by a structure of law skewed by Constitutional and legal protections for private property and corporations. Out of that has grown a new "community rights" movement to educate people about the real legal and political structures that maintain corporate dominance as well as crafting local ordinances and ballot intitiatives to curtail corporate power.
