Tuesday 3/12 Are there alternatives to our current forms of money? On the next Your Call, we’ll have a conversation with Bernard Lietaer and Jacqui Dunne, authors of Rethinking Money: How New Currencies Turn Scarcity into Prosperity. In the past 30 years, there has been a considerable growth of cooperative currencies around the world— from fewer than a handful in 1980 to more than 4,000 today. How does an alternative monetary system work? Are you rethinking money in your community? 

Wednesday 3/13 What can lead to wrongful convictions? The wrongful conviction, imprisonment, and then recent release of West Oakland resident, Ronald Ross, was said to be the result of shoddy police work and lying witnesses.  How frequently are people like Ronald Ross wrongly convicted and sentenced?  What in our system leads to these failures?  And what can be done about it? 

Thursday 3/14 What do big dams do to communities and ecosystems?  Thursday is International Day of Action for Rivers.  According to the Berkeley-based group, International Rivers, roughly two-thirds of the world's rivers have suffered harm from the 50,000 large dams that have been built over the past century.  What is this doing to nearby communities, ecosystems, and the planet as a whole?  

Thursday 3/14 [11-12 Bonus hour!!] What's at stake if Community College of San Francisco loses its accreditation?   

Friday 3/15 Media Roundtable

Monday 3/18 What is life like for Iraqis 10 years now since the US invasion?
