On the November 4th edition of Your Call, it’s our Friday media roundtable. This week, we’ll discuss coverage the ongoing mass mobilization against the construction of $3.8 billion Dakota Access oil pipeline, which Native Americans say will destroy sacred sites and threaten their water supply.
We’ll also discuss voter suppression. With voting restrictions in place in 14 states, this is the first presidential election in 50 years without the full protections of the Voting Rights Act. Join us live at 10am with Rose Aguilar, and you.
