On Monday, March 28, Labor Forum guests discuss two issues of great importance to working people and their families – is there a need for religious liberty legislation in Georgia and what’s the purpose of the constitutional amendment to allow the state take-over of public schools known as the Opportunity School District?
Both of these public policy matters have great impact on a wide cross section of workers, their workplaces and their communities.
From 4:15-4:30pm, we will ask Rob Woods of Georgia Equality what is the motivation behind and what are the possible consequences of religious liberty legislation in the state.
Then from 4:30-5pm, Greg Fann of AFSCME 1644 and Rev. Albert Love of SCLC will continue our exploration of the background and impact of the Opportunity School District proposal. Quality public school education has long been a fought-for right by labor and civil rights groups. We will ask how they see OSD in the context of that struggle for equality and democratic participation.
The Labor Forum airs every Monday from 4-5pm on WRFG 89.3FM . Please visit our website at http://www.wrfglaborforum.org for additional information and Like our Facebook page, Join our Twitter and Subscribe to our YouTube channel.
