Listen to CELDF’s radio program – Democracy Matters – every Thursday at 10 am Eastern/7am Pacific at www.kyrs.org. You can also podcast the show each week at kyrs.org/podcasts.cfm, click on “Democracy Matters.”
On this week’s program, we take a look at the financial reform legislation likely to be adopted by Congress this week and how the mega-banks have succeeded in weakening the bill. In addition, we examine the Endangered Species Act and why only 1% of listed species have been recovered. We also interview Brad Read, chair of Envision Spokane and a lecturer for Democracy Schools.
Each week we bring you stories from the frontlines as communities bring rights-based organizing to their communities – asserting their local self-governing authority to make the critical decisions that affect their lives and their community.
