M WilliamsonWednesday, February 19, 6pm EST: Mitchell’s first guest tonight on Radio is Marianne Williamson.

Those of you who listen to Mitchell on A Better World Radio & TV know that he is a major advocate of the “Citizen Legislator” as originally proposed by our Founding Fathers, instead of the ‘factionalist”, two-party system we have become, so severely limiting a fuller, deeper, democratic process.

Independent candidates for U.S. President all the way to Attorney General of New York State and Mayor of NYC have been guests on A Better World as a means of advocating a richer, more dignified Democratic Process. The greatly loved and acclaimed, author and teacher, Marianne Williamson, is now stepping up to advocate independent politics and more, to participate. She is running for U.S. Congress in CA. as we speak.

Marianne is an internationally-renowned author, lecturer and thought leader. Six of her ten published books have been New York Times Best Sellers. Four of these have been #1 New York Times Best Sellers.

In 1997, she published Healing the Soul of America, calling for a holistic perspective on America’s political system. The book is an insightful examination of our history and politics, offering personal and political solutions for the renewal of our democracy.

Marianne began her career as a lecturer in Los Angeles in 1983, and since that time she has lectured to hundreds of thousands of people in the United States and abroad. She has written books that include the mega bestseller A Return to Love, The Age of Miracles, Everyday Grace, A Woman’s Worth, Illuminata, Healing the Soul of America, The Gift of Change and The Law of Divine Compensation.

For the past thirty years, Marianne has been a formidable activist for social justice. In 1990, she founded Project Angel Food, a meals-on-wheels program that serves homebound people with AIDS in the Los Angeles area. She also co-founded The Peace Alliance, promoting legislation to establish a United States Department of Peace. And she serves on the Board of Directors of the RESULTS organization, working to end the worst ravages of hunger and poverty throughout the world.

In November 2012, Marianne produced a conference in Los Angeles called SISTER GIANT: Women, Non-Violence and Birthing a New American Politics, attended by almost 2,000 women representing all fifty states.

Williamson has been a popular guest on television programs such as Oprah, Larry King Live, Good Morning America, Charlie Rose and Piers Morgan. She was referred to in a 2006 Newsweek Magazine poll as on one of the 50 most influential baby boomers.

Sally CoxeFor the second half of the show, Mitchell will be talking to Sally Jewell Coxe, president and co-founder of the international non-profit organization Bonobo Conservation Initiative (BCI).

Known as “Mama Bonobo,” Sally has worked tirelessly for over 20 years to protect bonobos, preserve the Congo rainforest, and empower Congolese communities as leaders in conservation.

Distinguished by their peaceful, matriarchal society, loving nature and profound intelligence, bonobos are humankind’s most closely related great ape relatives, along with chimpanzees. BCI’s guiding vision is the Bonobo Peace Forest, an integrated network of community-managed nature reserves, supported by sustainable development. In partnership with local communities and the Democratic Republic of Congo government, BCI has established two official protected areas to date—spanning more than 13,000 square miles of vital rainforest habitat—plus additional sites where local communities are protecting bonobos.

Sally’s innovative work has been recognized in many publications, including the New York Times, National Geographic, The Washington Post, Smithsonian Magazine, Time Magazine—and most recently a new book by award-winning author Deni Béchard entitled Empty Hands, Open Arms: The Race to Protect Bonobos and Make Conservation Go Viral.
