April 2017

“How to REALLY Make America Great”

The U.S. is experiencing its worst existential crisis since the Civil War.  Americans must figure out what we want our nation to be.  Although the new person in the White House campaigned to “make America great,” he and the majority in Congress are actually undermining America’s best values and hurting our nation in many ways.  They are pitting people with power – rich, white, male, right-wing – against people who lack those kinds of power and privilege.

In order to make America REALLY great, we must reverse the harmful aspects of our nation’s culture and organize for positive changes in public policy.  We must stand up boldly to affirm the values that would make our nation REALLY great, and reverse the current policies that imposing cruelty, ignorance, pollution, racism, sexism, fear, corruption, and other evils upon us. 

Nowadays people are inundated with problems.  What people need are solutions!  Merely lamenting, “Ain’t it awful,” only depresses and disempowers people.  Instead, we need positive solutions and grassroots empowerment.  That’s what the Olympia FOR’s April 2017 TV program does.  

Five guests share their values, visions and proposals that are the opposite of what’s being imposed upon us.  Our five guests identify some current problems and propose solutions that would REALLY make America great.  

To address all of the problems and solutions, we’d need fifty guests instead of five.  But our five guests provide a good start.  You will enjoy hearing from Karen Fraser, Paul Pickett, Tamborine Borrelli, Kim Dobson, and Cindy Corrie.

You have two ways to watch this program.  See the information at the top of this page.
