Kannagi Speaks with Liz Walsh, a member of the Victorian Socialists, about a rally she recently helped organise in Footscray in support of safe injecting rooms. Find out about more about the positive impacts of safe injecting rooms from this independent report and Liz's aricle in Red Flag.

We play Priya's conversation from Women on the Line with Kerry Klimm, a Kuku Yalanji and Koko Lama Lama woman living in Meanjin, who speaks about being subject to - and fighting - institutional racism while working in the not-for-profit sector, and the lasting toll this has taken on her health and wellbeing.

Evie speaks with Dr Susie Allanson and Lizzie O’Shea, two of the key players in the fight for safe access to abortion for women and also the co-authors of a book, 'Empowering Women', that is the oral history of this hard won battle.
