Activist Musician Anne Feeney and Registered Dietician Sharon Palmer for WOC Feb 25 2016

Anne Feeney says she has been “‘comforting the afflicted and afflicting the comfortable’ since I graduated from high school in 1968. The Vietnam war and the Civil Rights Movement shaped my conscience and consciousness. I worked for a dozen years or so as a trial attorney, and served as President of the Pittsburgh Musicians’ Union. For the last 25 years I was really living my dream… on the road 200+ days a year… all over the US and Canada, and then Sweden, Ireland and Denmark. It has been my privilege to spend most of my waking hours with people who are trying to make a difference in this world… people on strike, or in a union or community organizing drive, or defending women’s rights, the environment, human rights … working to end poverty and racism … teaching peace.”  She talks with us about her grandfather, William Patrick Feeney, an elected representative and union organizer who helped enact anti-scab legislation.  Then, Chris Cook with a “What in the World” update.  And, Sharon Palmer tells us about the WHO designated “Year of the Pulse” – what that is, why it’s significant, and how to be healthy and save money on a plant based diet.
