Speaker: Mike Rhodes

Topic: Update on Homelessness in Fresno.

Mike Rhodes is author of Dispatches from the War Zone, which offers the reader a rare opportunity to understand the homeless issue from the perspective of the homeless and their allies.

Mike closely covered this story for over 10 years prior to the publication of his book in February, 2016.  He will give an overview of the historical context of homelessness in Fresno, what works and what doesn’t work in effectively reducing homelessness and what has happened since the book was written.

Mike Rhodes is a journalist and former editor of the Community Alliance newspaper in Fresno California. He is a photo journalist, was a news reporter for KFCF 88.1 FM and has produced many videos documenting politics in Fresno and the Central Valley.

He is married, has two adult children, and lives in the community where he was born, Fresno. Politically a progressive, he is optimistic that a movement for social and economic justice will emerge and transform the world in which we live. A better world is possible!

Radio Bilingüe Hosts Town Hall in Sanger with Candidate for Congress TJ Cox

Radio Bilingüe Hosts Town Hall in Sanger with Candidate for Congress TJ Cox

Radio Bilingüe is convening a town hall in Sanger with residents of CD 21, a district with Latino supermajority and a major battleground in the fight for the US Congress.

The community forum will be be held on:

Monday, October 15th

6:00 PM – 7:30 PM

Sanger Woman’s Clubhouse

1602 7th Street (at P Street)

Sanger, CA

The public dialogue will focus on issues of the highest interest to residents of CD 21, including access to health care, access to higher education, DACA and immigration, jobs, air quality and the water access crisis.

Radio Bilingüe has extended an invitation to both candidates in CD 21’s race: incumbent Rep. David Valadao and Democratic challenger TJ Cox. We have confirmed participation from Mr. Cox. Rep. Valadao has declined the invitation.

Sponsored by Radio Bilingüe, the town hall will be produced and moderated in collaboration with KQED Central Valley Bureau, and will include questions from selected community panelists and members from the live audience.

This special program is part of the series “Hacia el Voto 2018,” an election and civic-participation news coverage that’s a tradition on Radio Bilingüe. The program will be aired tape-delay the following day on Radio Bilingüe’s three full-power stations in the San Joaquin Valley, as well as an additional 60 stations affiliated to the Latino public radio network around the country. The program will also be distributed via webcast, podcast, and audio on demand.
