Tune in for political satire as the cast of The Capitol Steps offer satire and skewering in sketch and song that traverses party boundaries without a passport. Monday, July 1 at 7pm, Thursday, July 4 at 1pm. (City Visions and Open Air return next week.)
What happens to young people in the Bay Area with no college degree? How can they navigate a labor market that demands high tech skills without adequate education or training? Producer and guest host Victoria Thorp and guests explore new strategies for addressing the opportunity divide in the Bay Area.
City Visions examines what happened when two San Francisco police officers, tired of cycling Mission teens in and out of jails, reached out to Supervisor David Campos, inspired business owners, and former gang members to find better opportunities for at-risk Mission District kids. This team started Family and Education Over Everything to encourage middle-school kids to stay in school and out of gangs. They are also finding jobs for older teens willing to make the commitment.
City Visions explores transphobia and homophobia in sports.
City Visions kicks off Pride month by exploring homophobia and transphobia in sports. Have conversations about out LGBTQ athletes in the Bay Area changed since Jason Collins and Brittney Griner came out publicly? Since Giants pitcher Jeremy Affeldt apologized for his homophobic past? How do intersections of race, class and gender impact the experiences of LGBTQ athletes? In K-12 education, does Race to the Top include LGBTQ athletes? And why do many people still question whether it is easier for women to come out than men?
