EARTH SAYLOVE is an artist-activist (and independent author) working in collaboration with WJZP Jazz Portland 107.9 FM and The University of Southern Maine’s Department of Media Studies, to produce: content covering | SOCIAL JUSTICE ISSUES | within a soundscape of | JAZZ | POETRY | and HIP HOP. “JAZZY PEOPLES” calls upon political and ethical philosophy, critical education and international peace studies, to report on human rights abuses throughout the Americas — to inspire PEACEFUL resolutions.
Airing within “JAZZY PEOPLES”, “MODERN DAY HARRIET” is a featured segment that highlights issues pertaining to human trafficking. Known as “Modern Day Slavery”, human trafficking occurs “when any person is forced to perform sex or labor in exchange for something of value”. Within the US, an estimated 100,000-300,000 minors are victims of CSEC (Commercial Sexual Exploitation of Children) every year. As child sexual abuse is often a root cause, MDH promotes prevention and awareness to protect minors.
Complimenting exclusive interviews and featured music, “EARTH SAYLOVE” contributes NEW, original poetry and hip hop that promotes positive peace transformations to eradicate poverty and exploitation. Whether domestic or global, honest and thought provoking, her original hip hop music offers a unique, creative process, toward addressing the ills of our modern society. The goal of the program is to create a healthful and equitable society, by exploring and practicing ways to make this “future world” our reality.
