Join Eddie Ytuarte, Adrienne Lauby, and Shelley Berman for an hour-long special look across the budgetary landscape.Â Weâ€™ll talk to Marty Omoto, director of the California Disability Community Action Network (CDCAN), Kathie Kates, an IHSS worker caring for her 86 year old mother, and Nancy Becker Kennedy of the new IHSS Consumers Union.Â We have a commentary by Jacob Lesner-Buxton. Â And weâ€™ll be talking to you. . . about joining KPFA as a member.
KPFAâ€™s budget supports our program and we need to keep it healthy.Â Weâ€™re asking you to remember to support Pushing Limits and KPFA by renewing or joining as a member.Â Since weâ€™re discussing the budget, and weâ€™re all on a fixed budget, weâ€™re asking poor people and people on fixed incomes in particular to help us build a strong foundation at KPFA.Â The low-income membership is only $25, and weâ€™ve gone all out to get a thank you gift for a membership at any level.
Weâ€™ll send you Martha Courtotâ€™s beautiful retrospective book, â€œThe Bird Escapes,â€ 170 pages of working class, feminist and disability poetry, when you pledge at any level during the program.Please call in your pledge of support to KPFA during our show at: 510-848-5732 or toll free: 1-800-439-5732 and keep disability issues alive and on the air.Â You can also listen and pledge on-line at www.kpfa.org, orMail a check to: DevelopmentIn Support of Pushing LimitsKPFA Radio1929 MLK Jr. Way
