On May 15th, host Bev Livingston speaks with Thomas (TJ) James, the Community Organizer for Our Voices with More2, Metro Organization for Racial and Economic Equity.  They are one of the most recognizable social justice organizations in the metro.

Do you, a loved one, or friend have a conviction? Ever felt discriminated against when it comes to housing, employment or other areas of life? Do you know if you can vote? Do you feel your voice is not being heard? Have you felt the need to change things but didn’t exactly know how?

Tune in to learn of their actions and what you can do to be involved.


We will play the calendar at the midpoint of our hour.


For the second half of our hour, we replay a piece from Richard Tripp, now departed, about how to build a community with heart.

On Jaws of Justice, we examine how to find justice in our society.  Justice will not be served until those who are unaffected are as outraged as those who are.
