Before Deciding

When our representatives are making important decisions that impact all of our lives I believe it is important to ask one basic question before making
those decisions,
Is this good for
the children?

Just imagine what our world would be like if that question was asked prior to making decisions about going to war, the environment, education or healthcare.

Featured Guests

1. Dr. Gillian Squirrel, Founder and Director, Homeless With Pets

2.Evelina Molina,  Member, Community Action Coalition (CAP) on Dump Trump's Sheriff - Recall Freitas Campaign


 1.   Dr. Gillian Squirrel shares how she started to interact with the homeless population in Sonoma County through their pets.  She noted how important the pets were to their owner and how innovative and responsible the owners are under adverse circumstances.  Gillian started Homeless with Pets to bring supporters and other professionals into the caring services for the pets, like veterinarian in the area who volunteer for free veterinarian care for such pets. Often the owners open up more to what they need and public resources are then sought for further help to the owner, such as medical and dental services, to enter into housing again with their pet. The lack of services noted can then be addressed with policy changes.Check out the link to Homeless with Pets to see how you can get involved.

About our First Guest:  Dr. Gillian Squirrel describes herself as a social scientist in action, as someone with a keen commitment to making the most of theory and practice and having one inform the development of the other. She is a relatively new arrival to Sonoma County having come from the UK with a background both in direct service provision and with an academic background in the evaluation of social programs.
Struck by the volume of homelessness in Sonoma County she saw a gap in our provision for people living homeless and started developing a strategy to address that gap. That gap was what happens to people living homeless with animal companions? In 2016 after a couple of years of pilot work she founded the non-profit Homeless With Pets. Gillian Squirrel has a wide range of interests and Homeless With Pets plays to both concerns to support the power of the human-animal bond and concerns with social justice and welfare.

2. Evelina Molina talks about her work with community engagement with County law enforcement, beginning with her interest in the plight of non-documented immigrants.  She talks about the push to get a park named for Andy Lopez, the 13-year old boy who was killed by Sheriff Deputy Gelhoff within seconds of his encounter, mistaking a toy gun for a real gun, in spite of years as an Army weapons instructor n Afganistan and Iraq. We discuss the recent controversy over the inclusion of a large police officer image helping a child in the newly unveiled commissioned mural is discussed. Since Sheriff Freitas, a supporter of Donald Trump in his successful campaign for President, was one of the first Sheriffs in the nation to meet with the new US Attorney General Jeff Sessions, and because of the handling of the Andy Lopez case, Evelina has joined the Community Action Coalition of Sonoma County to their campaign to gather signatures for a petition called Dump Trump's Sheriff - Recall Freitas Campaign.

About our Second Guest:  Evelina Molina is a long-time human rights activist she is currently a freelance journalist and continues her activism to this day as a member of the Community Action Coalition of Sonoma County and Justice for Andy Coalition.
