Many Ways to Support Between The Lines' Bringing Progressive Voices to More Listeners

With Google's, Facebook's and the Trump administration's attacks on "fake news" that threaten long-standing, independent media resources like Between The Lines, we are facing new challenges. From keeping up with technological changes, to the the FCC plans to dismantle Net Neutrality and allow right-wing Sinclair TV (aka "Trump TV") in 72 percent of U.S. households, we need your support as we continue to raise another $1000 by the end of this year.

Please donate now to help keep progressive voices and viewpoints on the airwaves. See our thank you gifts for your donation.

This Week on Between The Lines

Posted Dec. 23, 2015 for week ending Jan. 1, 2016

"Overall we are disappointed in the Republican leadership. They have allowed this to happen for quite a long time, this rhetoric accusing the Muslim community overall and speaking in language that is quite frankly divisive and demeaning, degrading to our people and our religion."

– Mongi Dhaouadi, executive director of the Connecticut chapter Council on American-Islamic Relations commenting on the link between some GOP presidential candidates' toxic political rhetoric and the rise of anti-Muslim hate crimes in the U.S.

With Anti-Muslim Hate Crimes on the Rise in U.S., Islamic Groups Enhance Security, Community Engagement

MP3 Interview with Mongi Dhaouadi, executive director, with the Connecticut chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, conducted by Scott Harris

muslim

Since the Nov. 13 ISIS attacks in Paris that left 130 dead and 368 injured, followed by the Dec. 2 San Bernardino, California mass shooting by a radical Islamist couple that killed 14 and wounded 22 others, incidents of anti-Muslim hate crimes in the U.S. have increased dramatically. According to the Center for the Study of Hate & Extremism at California State University in San Bernardino, the number of attacks on Muslims and their houses of worship has risen almost three-fold, and include assaults on women dressed in traditional veils or hijabs, vandalism, arson and shootings. While the number of anti-Muslim crimes over the past five years has averaged 12.6 per month, in the four weeks following the Paris attacks, the number rose to 37.  Story continues

Connecticut's Juvenile Justice Reforms Eyed as National Model

MP3 Interview with Mike Lawlor, undersecretary for criminal justice policy and planning at Connecticut Office of Policy and Management, conducted by Melinda Tuhus

juvenile

Until a few years ago, Connecticut was among the most backward states in the nation regarding its treatment of juveniles in the criminal justice system. Connecticut was among three states – including New York and North Carolina – that treated all juveniles 16 years and older as adults, regardless of the criminal charges. Teenagers were often the victims of abuse in prison, and their public criminal records – even when they didn't result in prison time – followed them the rest of their lives, records which made them ineligible for student loans or live in public housing, or to receive benefits from government programs like food stamps. Recidivism for these young offenders was high.  Story continues

New Book Explains Why U.S. Has Worst Income Inequality Among Developed Nations

MP3 Interview with Les Leopold, author of the new book titled, "Runaway Inequality: An Activist's Guide to Economic Justice," conducted by Scott Harris

inequality

The American dream for many has turned into a nightmare, with millions of workers stuck in dead-end, low-paying jobs and few prospects for a brighter future. For the younger generation lucky enough to afford a college education, many are now confronted by the stark reality of being burdened with tens of thousands of dollars in tuition debt and limited career opportunities. Inequality is at an all-time high in the U.S., which has the most unequal income distribution across the entire industrialized world.  Story continues
