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.
