Building Bridges Radio: Your Community & Labor Report

Produced and Hosted by Mimi Rosenberg & Ken Nash over WBAI,99.5FM in the NYC Metro Area


WORKERS OF THE WORLD TUNE IN! Introducing "Building Bridges: Your Community & Labor Report"

Our beat is the labor front, broadly defined, both geographically and conceptually. We examine the world of work and workers on the job as well as where they live. We examine the issues that affect their everyday lives, with a particular sensitivity towards human rights abuses, environmental concerns and the U.S. drive for global domination. We record their global struggles and provide analysis of their efforts to empower themselves and transform society to provide greater democratic, human, social, political and economic rights. Each program consists of feature stories, generally interviews, within a historical context, often accompanied by sound from demonstrations, rallies or conferences, and complemented and enhanced by poetry and instrumental or vocal -- people's culture.

Over the years Building Bridges has produced a weekly one hour program, Mondays from 7-8 PM EST, covering local, national and international labor and community issues over radio WBAI-Pacifica 99.5 FM in New York. We also produce half hour version, Building Bridges National, which is distribtued to over 40 broadcast and internet radio stations.

The Green Collar Economy:
How One Solution Can Fix Our Two Biggest Problems
best selling author, activist Van Jones

The U.S. economy has suffered a serious slowdown, with the resulting increase in underemployment and unemployment - poverty is expanding and deepening. But,
don't mourn, organize, capture the moment with Building Bridges as we explore
with Van Jones how the greening of America is both a moral imperative and
provides the nuts and bolts of economic stimulus. Now is the time to reenergize
the discussion, too long dormant about what/who creates wealth and its
redistribution to those who do. Planting the seeds with Van Jones from which
will sprout a real bailout for workers of the U.S.
