Sunday Salon

Sunday Salon – April 16, 2006

In our first hour…

Imagine being one of several dozen women incarcerated with thousands of men. Harassment, humiliation, and in many cases, rape, are all a part of the daily routine. So is being called "sir." Outside of prison, transgender folks often face a hurtful lack of understanding; inside prison, that lack of understanding can be life-threatening… Attorney Alex Lee of the Transgender, Gender Variant & Intersex Justice Project joins us, and others, to be confirmed.

In our second hour…

Its been 100 years since the 1906 Earthquake. And 1989 — when the last big one hit the Bay Area — isn’t recent history, either. Time to dust off your earthquake-preparedness savvy… Our guests Ana-Marie Jones of Collaborating Agencies Responding to Disasters, Kiska Icard of the San Francisco SPCA, and others will remind you how to get yourself, your home, and your family — including its non-human members — ready for a rumbler.
