My guest today is Dr. Ayo Maat, a pastoral counselor and unrelenting activist in Chicago’s inner city.   In a far-ranging discussion we look at what people living in poverty and disability in the inner cities really need.  We also describe our mutual efforts in the 1990s that successfully stopped a racist eugenic federal program in the United States, including Chicago.  Some of what you discover may be surprising as we learn from Dr. Maat ‘s extensive experience as a reformer confronting discrimination in many areas of life including race, poverty, and mental disability.  Her heroic life as a reformer is inspiring.   Also, remember that we are now taking callers live every Wednesday at 4 pm NY time at 888 874 4888 and that you can email your thoughts about the program to
