    The Guttmacher Institute is based upon three pillars to support abortion access in the U.S.: (1) high-quality research, (2) evidence-based advocacy, and (3) strategic communications. You can support them here: https://give.guttmacher.org/give/

    Geoffrey from Milwaukee: "music can heal a nation as well as a person!" "This song takes me back to the early 1970s. It was a time of unrest in the country but there was also a lot of angst in my personal life because of a recent break up. I remember when this song came on the radio and it spoke to what we needed to do to heal as a nation and yet also to me to heal and move on. I would love to hear this song on the air today to remember that time and to think ahead as we work to bring our country together in the coming years. Music can heal a nation as well as a person!"

    Welcome to the Election Day edition of The Midday Show with Eva Walker! Laura Nyro wrote this song in reaction to Robert Kennedy's assassination on June 5, 1968 - she composed the song within 48 hours of hearing the news, and it was released by the end of the month. That August, LA radio station KRLA spun the record every hour while the turbulent Democratic convention unfolded in Chicago. Still, the song didn't gain national attention until the 5th Dimension released their soulful rendition.
