S1E5: Reproductive Freedom for All ft. Travis Ballie, Dee Srivastava, & Emily Crofoot

This time, we talked to national and local organizers about the fight for reproductive freedom and the access to abortion services. First, we chatted with Travis Ballie, a national organizer focusing on the Mid-Atlantic region with NARAL Pro-Choice America. Then, we brought things down to the local level by highlighting the good work done by the DC Abortion Fund (DCAF). Dee Srivastava and Emily Crofoot explain how DCAF helps women in need to afford abortion coverage in the DC area, and why their work is so important to the communities they serve. Stay up to date with DCAF by following them on Facebook and Twitter. In between, we featured the great song “Heir to Nothing” from local band Coup Sauvage & the Snips, who unfortunately held their last show in June. You can still find them on Facebook and Twitter, and can still buy their art on Bandcamp! Call to Action We have two simple calls to action for you this time: Donate to DCAF, and if you’re able set up a recurring donation. Th...

Episode 4 - Winning Universal Paid Leave ft. Hannah Weilbacher

Full show notes: http://bit.ly/2q0rwSw To help us explore the paid leave issue in the district—the legislation as it’s passed, the coalition that came together to fight for it, and what’s coming next—we spoke with Hannah Weilbacher, previously a community organizer with Jews United for Justice who worked on the DC Paid Family Leave Campaign. Call To Action This is our clearest call to action yet: go to the DC Paid Family Leave Campaign website and volunteer. Seriously, they make it so easy for you to contribute however you can—showing up at events, making phone calls, shooting out tweets, or even just talking to your friends about the issue. You can also show your support by signing this petition or sign up directly to make weekly phone calls to targeted council members demanding full funding for program startup costs in the 2018 budget being debated now throughout the month of May. It took a popular movement to get to this point. Now we need to keep the pressure on so that the...

S1E3.5 - Whole Foods Picket to #ReinstateJulia (4.30.17)

On Sunday, April 30, over 60 workers and community members picketed outside the Whole Foods Market at P and 14th St. NW to demand the reinstatement of Julia Flores, a worker fired in September 2016 after 15 years of service in retaliation for collectively organizing in the workplace. The protest was part of a whole slate of activities organized by Many Languages, One Voice (MLOV) and others for #DConStrike, culminating in coordinated actions of business closings, rallies, and marches of striking workers and accomplices on May Day. We spoke with MLOV organizer Hannah Kane and Julia Flores about the Sunday Whole Foods picket, #DConStrike, and why the broader struggle for worker justice is so vital today.

Episode 3 - The Power Is Yours! ft. Jeremiah Lowery

With Earth Day and the Science Marches around the country in the rearview mirror, and the People’s Climate March right around the corner on Saturday, April 29, we wanted to focus this episode on the environmental justice movement. We tried out a new format this time, conducting only one interview so that we could have a more indepth conversation. And we needed more time with this conversation, because a guy like Jeremiah Lowery has a lot to talk about. Follow Square 1 on Twitter at @Square1Show!

Episode 2 - The Fight for Sanctuary in DC

Show Notes In this episode, we focused on organizing for immigrant rights in D.C. and the fight to keep the District a sanctuary city. First, we sat down with Celina Marquez, a third year law student at George Washington University studying immigration law and helping DMV residents navigate the complexities of the immigration system at the GW Immigration Legal Clinic. Our second interview featured Yasemin Zahara and Paola Perez, two community organizers from Many Languages, One Voice, a Mt. Pleasant based grassroots organization working to build power in D.C.’s immigrant community. Sandwiched between the interviews, we heard “Cathedral” by Flavor Wasters. You can find more of their music on Bandcamp, or follow them on Facebook and Twitter to stay in the loop on upcoming performances. Call to Action Immigrants make up 25% of our city's population, and play a huge role in keeping the District a vibrant, healthy, and beautiful place to live. To keep D.C. safe for all of us, we must ...
