How the state is responding to anticipated widespread flooding across the Tulare Basin. A Nevada County non-profit shares their world travels of service to migrants and asylum seekers. Sacramento History Museum’s quilt exhibit asks “What do women and girls need?”
Tulare Basin flooding
California’s snowpack is among the highest on record. And when it melts, it will bring flooding not seen in decades to the Central Valley’s Tulare Basin– an agricultural mecca already reeling from a series of atmospheric rivers this year. Brian Ferguson, Deputy Director for the California Office of Emergency Services, discusses how the state is preparing and responding to a slowly unfolding natural disaster in the southern San Joaquin Valley.

The non-profit organization has also highlighted their work with presentations in the region that they hope provides hope and inspiration to those who attend.

A new “pop-up” exhibit at Sacramento’s History Museum is exploring the question of, “what do women and girls need in Sacramento?” Delta Pick Mello, Executive Director of the Sacramento History Museum and Erin Saberi, Chair of the Sacramento County Commission on the Status of Women and Girls join us to explain why this exhibit is unique to the museum and Sacramento, and how you can learn from it as well. There is also an interactive part of the exhibit that allows visitors to add their thoughts and feelings to the mosaic that is the Sacramento experience.
