Today on Your Call: How can California’s budget promote economic equality?


  On the next Your Call we’ll talk about budgetary priorities. The Greenlining Institute has a new report out that analyzes California Governor Jerry Brown’s proposed budget from the perspective of its impact on communities of color. They call it a mixed bag. Latinos are expected to feel the most pain from Brown’s budget. How will the budget affect communities of color? And what do you think of measuring it through this lens? It’s Your Call, with Hana Baba and you.

Guests:

Michelle Romero, director of the Claiming Our Democracy program at The Greenlining Institute

Justin Rausa, manager of the Bridges to Health program at The Greenlining Institute

Valerie Cuevas, director of external relations for The Education Trust—West
