This Thanksgiving Week we’re featuring a roundtable discussion about the mythology that comes with this holiday. We discuss how this story shapes our thinking about how our country formed, who we are as a people, and what it means when history turns into mythology and the difficulty with dispelling those myths. And how the power of this myth affects our fight for rights and freedom today. We also interview Chad Nicholson, a community organizer in Maine who works with the Community Environmental Legal Defense Fund, assisting communities challenging the structural barriers to building sustainable local food systems in their communities.

If you’re in the Spokane listening area, you can listen to Democracy Matters every Wednesday at 12:30pm Eastern/9:30am Pacific, or Thursday at 10am Eastern/7am Pacific, at 89.9FM, best heard at 92.3FM.  Or you can listen online at KYRS, Spokane’s Thin Air Community Radio.

You can also listen anytime by podcasting the show.

We are also pleased to announce the syndication of the show on Public Reality Radio, WPRR, 1680 AM and 95.3 FM in Grand Rapids.  The show airs at 6am Eastern every Tuesday morning.

Each week on Democracy Matters 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.

If you are interested in having Democracy Matters broadcast on your local community radio station, give them a call and let them know.
