This Week On The Fallon Forum: LGBT Vote, Latino Vote, Green Accounting, State Conventions, Bikes And Food
Ed is still doing great progressive talk radio. Check here for the Fallon Forum weekly broadcast schedule each and every Monday. You can livestream The Fallon Forum at www.fallonforum.com or WRLD.TV from 12:00-1:00, Monday-Friday. Podcasts available, too.)
Monday, we talk with Justin DeVries about the GLBT vote in the upcoming election. I’ve been working to get someone from the Republican Party of Iowa to join the conversation, too, but so far no luck (perhaps that won’t surprise anyone). Also joining me today is local acupuncturist Bill Terrell.
Tuesday, Gabriel De la Cerda is helping to organize the Latino vote. We’ll talk with him about that, and I also want take a closer look at President Obama’s recent executive order establishing a limited version of the Dream Act.
Wednesday, State Rep. Dan Kelly (D-Newton) is on the show with me. Beyond that, they’ll be plenty of open-line time, including a look at this past weekend’s state conventions.
Thursday, we’ll dig into the growing movement to provide a more comprehensive, sustainable method of assessing economic well-being, a method called “green accounting.” It’s one of the many items on the agenda for this week’s Rio Earth Summit.
Friday, among other topics, I want to take a closer look at efforts to make Des Moines’ streets safer for bicycles…and the controversy the effort is generating among neighbors on Des Moines south side. We’ll also talk about the local foods’ movement during the second half of the show.
