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.

Immigration Reform for 2014? -27:32  

Taking the Pulse on Immigration Reform for 2014?
Oscar Chacon, Ex. Dir., National Alliance of Latin American and Caribbean Communities Coalition 

Will there be immigration policy reform in 2014?  The answer, sadly, seems unlikely - at least not the kind of reform that would result in solid, forward-looking public policy.  But, having coming to that reality, advocates remain determined and are  going beyond all the current proposals in Washington and digging even deeper into the structural problems with our outdated, isolationist and fundamentally inhumane policy regime around immigrants and immigration. Along with this process, in the short term activists are increasing their efforts to put a stop to the rampant detentions and deportations that are causing so much pain in immigrant communities and we’ll talk about how both fronts are progressing.
