This special episode features my live conversation with activist, writer and feminist organizer, Gloria Steinem and Oakland-based artist and activist Favianna Rodriguez.

The legendary Gloria Steinem is the author of several best-selling books, was a founding editor of and political commentator for New York Magazine and a founding editor of Ms.

Favianna Rodriguez’s art and collaborative projects address migration, economic inequality, gender justice, and ecology. Favianna is also the Executive Director of CultureStrike, a national arts organization that engages artists, writers and performers in migrant rights.

Gloria, Favianna and I spoke on stage at the Castro Theatre in San Francisco on February 21st, 2019 as part of Women Lit, a program of the Bay Area Book Festival. Gloria’s book of essays--now in its third edition--and the occasion for our conversation--is called “Outrageous Acts and Everyday Rebellions”--and there is no better or more timely theme! In this conversation we talked about the ongoing fight for equality, how much has changed--or not--since Gloria wrote those essays between the 1960s and the 1990s...and how to create the future we envision!

This live event was made possible in part by EO essential oils bath and body care products and of course, my home station KALW in San Francisco, and PRX.

“The freedom of butterflies invite an entirely different reaction. They help us see that all living things move, we have always been moving since the beginning of time. Migrants are in line with what human beings have been doing for years, the punishment of this is a result of dominant culture”-- Favianna Rodriguez

This week we are thrilled to have Favianna Rodriguez on the show. Favianna Rodriguez is an transdisciplinary artist, cultural strategist, and activist based in Oakland, California. Her work and collaborative initiatives address migration, economic inequality, gender justice, and ecology. Favianna leads art interventions around the U.S. at the intersection of art, social justice and cultural equity. Favianna invites us to explore the wisdom of nature and Earth relations as a lense through which to envision an alternative to the current immigration crisis.

“Before you change politics, you have to change culture."

Favianna Rodriguez is a transnational interdisciplinary artist and cultural organizer, whose art and collaborative projects deal with migration, global politics, economic injustice, patriarchy, and interdependence. She is also the director of CultureStrike, a national arts organization that engages artists, writers and performers in migrant rights and the co-founder of Presente.org, a national online organizing network dedicated to the political empowerment of Latino communities. In this talk from CreativeMornings/Oakland from May 2014 on Freedom, Favianna talks about how politics have affected art & culture throughout history — and how the artist is indispensable in changing culture. She encourages us to use art to reclaim our humanity, and empowers us to change the language we use in the stories we tell so that we can take action in our communities.
