Who is Served & Protected? w/@MsKellyMHayes & @elleiswrite — #KatieSpeakShow Ep30 03/26/2016

In brief: This week was a mixed bag week for human rights in our country. More bad than good. We won in TN by the narrowest possible margin; we lost in Indiana. North Carolina passed HB2, equating trans people with predators. Because of the up and down, mostly rough week, I have a full show of interviews with and about inspiring people. BIG victories in Chicago with #ByeAnita, some shade for establishment Pro-Choice orgs/rhetoric, and an intro to a millennial-founded org you’re going to love. Enjoy!

Note: This show is available to stream and download for free so it can be accessible for everyone. If you’re able, consider becoming a supporter for as little as $1/month at PATREON or making a one-time donation through PAYPAL. Thank you!

My take…

No time! Great interviews! Enjoy!

My early shade to the word “choice” — the first thing I wrote when I started writing again after 10 years: ”Choice”
