Our show this Tuesday, January 17th, 12:00-1:00 PM ET, extends the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Holiday for the entire week by promoting two active events being held this week whereby you, the listeners, can promote racial and gender justice!

The first half of the show is devoted to the first ever National Day of Racial Healing, January 17th, which is being sponsored by the W.K. Kellogg Foundation. Our special guest is Dr. Gail Christopher, Vice President for Policy and Senior Advisor, W.K. Kellogg Foundation. Dr. Christopher has been a principal national and international leader in the racial healing movement. Her bio can be found at www.BarbaraArnwine.com. She is now heading a 10 city and regional initiative in the United States, Truth, Racial Healing and Transformation (TRHT). During our show Dr. Christopher will provide information about how everyone can become involved in the National Day of Racial Healing. This initiative is a most fitting way to honor the brilliant legacy of Dr. King.

The Transformative Justice Coalition is proud to partner with the WK Kellogg Foundation in co-sponsoring the inaugural National Day of Racial Healing. We applaud the foundation’s leadership in promoting truth, racial healing and transformation in our nation. In 2016 and 2017 our society has experienced an epidemic of hate crimes against African Americans, Latinos, Native Americans, Asian American, Jewish people, LGBTQIA individuals, Muslims and people with disabilities. We must unite to advocate for all Americans to live free from hate. We urge everyone in our nation to join in this national day of action. More information about the National Day of Healing, including local events, can be found at www.wkkf.org. Also, on Twitter see #TRHT and #THEDAYTOHEAL.

The second half of the show will feature Janaye Ingram, who is working her organizational magic in coordinating the Women’s March on Washington to be held on January 21st, the day after the Presidential Inauguration. In 2013, while Executive Director at the National Action Network, Ms. Ingram organized the March on Washington which attracted thousands to the Lincoln Memorial. Her bio and picture can be found at www.BarbaraArnwine.com. Due to an intensive campaign by a group of 20 talented women leaders, it is estimated that upwards of 200,000 women may descend upon Washington, D.C., advocating that “women’s rights are human rights.” Ms. Ingram will share her insights about the planning for the March and how you, the listeners, may participate in this historic event. What are the objectives of the March? How do you get involved? How can you help? Listen to our show to learn the answer to these questions and so much more.

This will be a unique and wonderful show!

Be sure to listen live on Tuesday, January 17th, 12:00-1:00 PM ET, in the DC Metro Region at WOL 1450 AM and worldwide on the internet at www.BarbaraArnwine.com. A podcast of the show will be available on Tuesday evening.
