2/6/14 Salaam Love Anthology (Winter Fund Drive!)

Download the full show here.

Tonight we’ll be looking at Islamophobia in America — from vandalism of a Sacramento mosque to a recent federal court decision that finds “no-fly lists” are creating second class citizens. We’ll also speak with an editor and contributor of Salaam Love, a new anthology of Muslim American Men on love, sex and intimacy. And it’s winter fund drive! So we’ll be asking for your support by calling in during the APEX hour to donate to KPFA. As an all listener-sponsored radio station, we count on you to help us keep our community voices on air!

Call in number is 1-800-HEY-KPFA
