SAFIRE youth program at 7pm PST on KPFA Radio 94.1FM either on the radio or online. SAFIRE youth Mimi Ley, Michelle Sar and Melinda Saephan, along with Youth Organizing Manager Amanda Wake, are talking about the importance of honoring the young mothers in our community and countering the stigma that young parents face.
Mimi who is 18 and new mom to Sincere, 6 weeks, speaks about the judgment, joys and struggles she faces as a young mom. Melinda and Michelle talk about the actions they are taking as part of the SAFIRE youth program to stand with young mothers in their community, including the Young Mama's music video SAFIRE worked on and the Young Families Day Celebration that happened last May along with The Center For Young Women's Development.
They will be on in the second half of the show, so tune in around 7:30pm. If you can't listen to it tonight, don't worry! You can listen to it online later via KPFA's APEX Express archives page.
