Join us to talk about disability in the face of climate change.
Ana Acton’s monthly radio show on KVMR 89.5 FM Nevada City.
Listen live on the first Friday of each month from 12 to 1 p.m.
On the show this month, we interview Ted Jackson, the Community Organizing Consultant with the California Federation of Independent Living Centers. We talk with Ted about disability rights and inequality issues, both here in California and nationally. Ted worked on the Hillary Clinton campaign and now works for the Democratic National Committee, so we talk with him about that, too.
Join us this month as we talk with Bryon MacDonald of the World Institute on Disability and rose Sloan of the National Federation of the Blind about the practice of segregating people with disabilities in sheltered workshops where they can be paid literally pennies on the hour. We will also consider what is being done to end this practice.
On this episode Of disability rap, FREED Executive Director, Ana Acton, discusses information and referral services of Nevada County 211 with Alice Johnson, and an excellent opportunity to learn about the history of the Americans With Disabilities Act on August 7, with Youth Organizing Intern, Kristin Ansell and Deputy Director of the California Foundation for Independent Living Centers Christina Mills.
Join us this month as we talk to Kristen Darling about her work with a school for children with disabilities in Bali followed by a conversation with disability activist and author, Shawn Casey O’Brien, about his latest book “For the Love of Longshots: A memoir on democracy.”
Identities such as disability, gender or ethnicity are hardly ever isolated. In fact they often play off of each other. Join us this month as we talk about how two different identities – gender and disability – create an unexpected experience for the musicians that we look at in this special of Disability Rap.
