Your Call: How bad is California’s drought?

On the March 16th edition of Your Call, we’ll kick off a weeklong series on California’s water crisis. January was the driest month in the state since record keeping began in 1895 and February was the hottest. The fact is, it’s just not raining. As a result, California has just one year of water reserves, wells are running dry, and the Sierra snowpack is far below normal. What explains this? How are state officials dealing with the drought? And what’s the responsibility of citizens? It’s Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you.

Your Call: How does citizen oversight of police departments work?

How does citizen oversight of police departments work?  On the next Your Call, we’ll continue our series on police, community, race, and justice by discussing different models in Northern California. Where is citizen oversight working? San Diego, Oakland, Riverside, Long Beach, Sausalito, Novato, and Berkeley have review boards, but few people know these boards even exist. What power do citizen oversight boards have to ensure police accountability? How should these boards work? It’s Your Call with Rose Aguilar, and you.

Your Call: Where do you stand on the right to die movement?

Where do you stand on the right to die movement? On the March 10th edition of Your Call, we’ll have a conversation about a right to die bill in California. The renewed push for legislation comes after brain cancer patient Brittany Maynard moved to Oregon where she legally ended her life on November 1. Proponents of the bill say we should have the right to die with dignity. Opponents say people with disabilities and the elderly could be coerced into ending their lives. Where do you stand?  It’s Your Call with Rose Aguilar and you.
