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.

2. & 3. Mary Moore and Karen Saari talk about growing into their advocacy for review and oversight with supoena power of community law enforcement in Sonoma County. In the late 1990s, there was a spate of police in Sonoma County. Their advocating culminated in 2000 in a report by the California Advisory Committee to the US Commission on Civil Rights on Community Concerns about Law Enforcement in Sonoma County that was submitted to the County Board of Supervisors and the city councils in the county. The report was basically shelved.  The report saw the light of day again, however, after the Sonoma County Sheriff deputy shooting and killing of a 13-year old Andy Lopez carrying a toy gun in Santa Rosa, and a citizens' Justice Coalition for Andy Lopez (JCAL) raised their voices in protest of local policies concenrning the police and community interaction.  The report is discussed and links to the report will be posted below when available.

 About our Guest: Mary Moore has been a social justice activist since 1962 focusing on issues or racism, sexism and classism. In the late ‘70s she organized a statewide network to stop Diablo Canyon and Rancho Secco nukes. She co founded the Bohemian Grove Action Network in 1980 to raise awareness of the elite and small network of men with outsized influence that gather annually at Bohemian Grove in Sonoma County. n the mid ‘90s she helped to start a local movement against police abuse, getting the US Civil Rights Commission to hold hearings in Sonoma County and documenting the unacceptable amount of killings by police.
She is currently working on an archives project for the Bancroft Library in Berkeley, CA, and writing a book. 

About our Guest: Karen Saari earned her BA in History from Russell Sage College.  Karen currently works as a paralegal for a California appellate attorney and also as a professional organizer for self-employed professionals. In the late 1990s she  made a presentation on the local deaths and attracted some national attention. Ultimately, Project Censored offered to sponsor Karen in a research project to identify all police-related deaths in the US for one calendar year. To her knowledge, this was the first such project on police-involved deaths of civilians ever conducted. The result was the Stolen Lives- Killed by Law Enforcement project and book. Since that time, 20 years ago, she has continued to keep track of law enforcement related deaths of civilians here in Sonoma County.
