Soul interviews Executive Directors from Brother To Brother and Q-Center. Topics: 1) What's new in 08? 2) Volunteering (needs and leads) for each organization.

Guest Line-Up:

In honor of the delay in domestic partnership benefits as well as all the work our community is doing to resolve this delay, we opened this show with track one titled: Drive recorded by Incubus from a CD with the same name: Drive. 

Show Line-Up:

  • A quick call with Multnomah County Commissioner Jeff Cogen.
  • An interview with Alisa, the ED of Brother-To-Brother.  Alisa (along with her Board) shares HISTORIC news! Listen in as they announce a FIRST of it’s kind (in the nation) partnership between a national and a local organization. Discover B2B news and volunteer needs.
  • An interview with Q-Center Executive Director Kendall.  Q-Center received national and some international news attention when they hosted BRO’s vigil for Portland residents. Kendall shares how Q-Center plans to grow in 2008 largely supported by a wide-cast of volunteers.
