Yasmin Nair on ENDA

program date: 
Mon, 07/22/2013

Denise Morris talks with Yasmin Nair about the Employment Non-Discrimination Act and its limits. They discuss changes in the current version of the law and its assumptions about the innate nature of sexual identity and the kinds of trans* presentation it would protect. Nair observes that while the Act would have symbolic importance and legal usefulness, real change cannot rely only on the courts. Though advocates of ENDA point out that it is legal to fire someone for being gay or trans in 34 states, Nair points out that it is legal to fire someone for no reason in 49 states where at-will employment law prevails.

Join Sharon Gary Smith, Executive Director, of McKenzie River Gathering Foundation (MRG) and Gahlena Avidan, Retired Community Activist and former member of the African American Advisory Committee to Portland Police Bureau as we discuss the marathon mind-set required in seeking justice for African Americans and others over the last 50 years and into the future. The March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom took place in Washington, D.C., on August 28, 1963. Attended by some 250,000 people, it was the largest demonstration ever seen in the nation's capital, and one of the first to have extensive television coverage. 1963 was noted for racial unrest and civil rights demonstrations.

77th Oregon Legislature Wrap-Up w/ Sen. Dingfielder

 

The 77th Oregon Legislature has adjourned and there are many winners and losers. Education appears to be an early winner and police accountability measures died quietly in committee without much action. How did your issue or cause fare this session? How effective is grassroots advocacy? What can you do now to prepare for the next legislative session? Join Senator Jackie Dingfielder and I for an informative discussion on Thursday July 11, 2013 from 8:00AM-9:00AM. Call-in at 503-231-8187 and join the conversation. http://www.leg.state.or.us/dingfelder/
