Full Circle KPFA · Full Circle 05 – 01 – 2020 May Day Essential Workers
Good evening everyone… and welcome to Full Circle your Cultural Affairs Radio Magazine produced by members of the First Voice Apprenticeship program… Broadcasting from right here at kpfa in Huichin- occupied Ohlone territory aka … Berkeley. Today was May Day.. All around the globe people spent the day honoring International Workers Day. And tonight we will do the same
On tonight’s show we find out about different kinds of essential workers and what they do, maybe you are more essential than you think. We will speak with Dr. Stephanie Rogers from right here in the bay area working out of UCSF about our elders in care facilities and the pro’s and con’s of bringing them home during the Covid 19 crisis. Then we will get an update from ECHO Housing on the different ways municipalities are working to protect their residents from losing their housing during this crisis. Later we learn about immigrant workers, documented or not, they are in many of the essential worker jobs. Are we taking care of them as they help take care of America? Find out when we speak with Pablo Alvardo of the National Day Laborer Organizing Network.
All that and some May Day music coming up tonight on Full Circle… I am your host Freewillin Franklin…
