Live From Main Street host Laura Flanders.

Let’s move beyond lipstick and hockey pucks to investigate what real national security looks like.

On this edition, an all-women panel examines how issues of national security impact our daily lives, and ask the tough questions about how to build a better future. Does the solution lie in our military or social policies? What are women doing to ensure security in their communities and in the world at large? And how does the militarization of our budget affect security in other areas of our lives?

Hosted by GRIT TV personality Laura Flanders, produced by The Media Consortium, and adapted for radio by Making Contact.

Event will feature:

Commissioner Gael Tarleton, Port of Seattle Commissioner; Carol Kessler, Pacific Northwest Center for Global Security National Lab Director and Women in International Security Co-chair; Rep. Maralyn Chase, Washington’s 32nd District and Washington State Director for the Women Legislator’s Lobby; Kristin Rowe-Finkbeiner, Mom’s Rising Executive Director; Martha Burk, Ms. Magazine Author and Money Editor; Sarah Van Gelder, YES!
