Gov. Newsom signed a series of police reform bills into state law. Also, a CapRadio/Valley Vision food resilience survey looks at the challenges to accessing community gardens and food banks. Finally, the aftermath of the oil spill off the Southern California coast.
- Co-founders of the Law Enforcement Accountability Directive (LEAD) Richard Owen and Mark T. Harris discuss the new police reform laws recently signed by the governor and what work they think still needs to be done
- California Peace Officers Association Deputy Director Shaun Rundle explains what positions the association took on the police reform laws and how they could affect training going forward
- CapRadio Race and Equity Reporter Sarah Mizes-Tan shares her reporting on the Hmong community, following the new Valley Vision/CapRadio survey on food access that shows that Latino and AAPI residents want to access farm-grown and specialty cultural foods, but that it isn't always easy.
- CapRadio Reporter Janelle Salanga shares their reporting on solutions, following the new Valley Vision/CapRadio survey that shows access to food aid and food banks isn't as easy as walking down that street. Some communities must travel long distances. And, during the pandemic, the food need has increased.
- Ronald Tjeerdema, an environmental toxicology professor at UC Davis, joins us to discuss the work being done in Southern California to contain and clean up the oil spill off the coast. He will also help us understand the grave concern for the sensitive wildlife in the area and how they are being cared for and treated.
