On the March 28th edition of Your Call, we’ll have a conversation about the growing protests against the hateful and xenophobic rhetoric in the 2016 presidential race.

  

On the June 3rd edition of Your Call, we’ll have a conversation about Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf’s decision to ban street protests after dark in response to acts of vandalism during a demonstration last month. The decision has drawn criticism from civil liberties groups and protests against the curfew. What are the responsibilities of demonstrators and when is it right for police to intervene? Where do you stand on protest curfews? It’s Your Call with Matt Martin, and you.
