“Economic Justice and a Strong Social Safety Net”

In case I did not post this TV interview before, here it is now:


“Economic Justice and a Strong Social Safety Net”

The August 2020 interview on “Glen’s Parallax Perspectives” TV series helps us understand some of the realities of people who experience poverty.  Three guests with first-hand experience explore problems and solutions.

We provide insights about poverty and welfare from the 1930s to today.  We replace the myths and misunderstandings with valid information and smart insights.  We discuss larger economic and political contexts and nitty-gritty realities in local welfare offices.  We affirm the need for “welfare rights” and connect the viewers with a smart Olympia-based organization, “Parents Organizing for Welfare and Economic Rights” (POWER.

Cable TV subscribers in Thurston County watched this interview on Thurston Community Media’s channel 22 three times a week throughout the entire month:  Mondays at 1:30 pm, Wednesdays at 5:00 pm, and Thursdays at 9:00 pm.

Everyone everywhere can watch this interview through a link on Glen’s blog, www.parallaxperspectives.org in the “TV Programs” and “Economics” categories.


I have been overloaded with other work, so I have not yet had time to type up a thorough summary of what we said during the interview, but when I can finish this task I will post the thorough summary to this blog link.  It will include some additional sources of information.
