Your Call: What questions do you have about Proposition 47?

On the October 21st, 2014 edition of Your Call, we'll have a debate about Prop 47, which would reduces the classification of nonserious and nonviolent property and drug crimes from a felony to a misdemeanor. Proponents say money spent incarcerating nonviolent felons would be better spent on social programs providing mental health and drug-treatment. Opponents say Prop 47 fails to punish potentially dangerous felons and will burden the criminal justice system. Where do you stand on proposition 47? It's Your Call, with Rose Aguilar, and you.

Your Call: How should the pro-choice movement reframe abortion?

 

  

On the October 20th edition of Your Call, we’re continuing our discussion about how the pro-choice movement should reframe the abortion debate.

How would you re-frame abortion? Join the conversation on the next Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you.
