Tonight’s show features voices from yesterday’s Families Belong Together rally at El Cerrito Plaza. With Father’s Day coming up on Sunday, we at First Voice Media dedicate this show to parents separated from their children- not by choice- but by force. By bars and borders. Join hosts Mari Nakagawa and Kendall Crakow for music, resistance, and a ticket giveaway for BACHATANightz-Berkeley Edition at Ashkenaz!
