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.

Analyzing The Landmark Decision
Holding Stop & Frisk Unconstitutional

Samuel Walker, criminal justice expert, witness in the historic trial

Judge Scheindlin's decision confirms what the communities subject to being stopped and frisked  already knew, the NYPD's Stop & Frisk program violates the constitutional rights of Black and Latino New Yorkers every day.  Samuel Walker, takes us through Judge Scheindlin's voluminous decision to discuss what a monitor can do, what they’ve done in other states, and Judge Judge Scheindlin's  other recommendations included in her decision and still others that institutionalize the attack on racial profiling.  We’ll also discuss AG Eric Holder’s comments on minimum sentencing and criminal justice reform.
Calls for Fed Gov to Investigate NYPD Killing of Ramarley Graham
Constance Malcolm, mother of Ramarley Graham

In the wake of a grand jury’s failure to indict killer cop Richard Haste, Constance Malcolm, the slain youth’s mother said,  “[I] am more than outraged, Richard Haste broke into our home and killed my son in cold blood.  The criminal justice system has failed us, just as it failed the family of Trayvon Martin.  We demand an immediate federal investigation into my son’s death.  We will continue to fight without rest until we win justice.”
