In the late 1800’s less than 1% of women between the ages of 18 to 24 were in college. College-educated women knew they were privileged, and decided to use that power to work for social justice. They created what became known as the American Association of University Women (</span>AAUW<span style="line-height: 1.5;">). The San Francisco chapter is the oldest branch in California, and the third oldest in the country.</span></p> Thu, 12 Jun 2014 02:00:00 +0000 Holly Kernan & News Producer 45066 at http://kalw.org Interview with Kathleen Cha former AAUW president Jeff Adachi - California's only elected public defender http://kalw.org/post/jeff-adachi-californias-only-elected-public-defender <p></p><p class="p1"><br />San Francisco is the only city in California where the voters choose their public defender. Since 2002, &nbsp;the city has elected Jeff Adachi. He comes from a long line of public defenders who have been fighting to give equal representation to those caught up in the criminal justice system. Every year his office takes on more than twenty five thousand clients who otherwise wouldn't be able to afford a lawyer.<br /><br /><span style="line-height: 1.5;">“San Francisco is the most progressive, pro union, lefty - and I'd probably be the poster boy for that in many ways.”</span></p><p class="p1"><span style="line-height: 1.5;"> Thu, 29 May 2014 01:02:00 +0000 Holly Kernan 44426 at http://kalw.org Jeff Adachi - California's only elected public defender Not a Genuine Black Man: Interview with Brian Copeland http://kalw.org/post/not-genuine-black-man-interview-brian-copeland <p>Brian Copeland has a weekly&nbsp; radio show on KGO.
