Ireland Overturns Anti-Abortion Law in Referendum, Ramadan 'Bail Out Campaign' Spreading Awareness on Mass Incarceration, And Rotary International Peacebuilding Conference in Chicago
On today's show:
- Ireland voted, overwhelmingly, to repeal its near-complete constitutional ban on abortion. Dr. Gilda Sedgh, a researcher at the Guttmacher Institute, discusses the potential impact.
- A group of local organizers have been putting their faith into action with a jail bailout campaign. Nabihah Maqbool, a member of the Believers Bail Out campaign team, and Irene Romulo, director of advocacy at the Chicago Community Bond Fund, join us to discuss.
- This year, Chicago will be only U.S. site of six Rotary Presidential Peace Conferences hosted around the world. Conference chair Patricia Merryweather-Arges joins us to highlight the opportunities for partnerships and action towards building a more peaceful world.
