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

WHO WE ARE

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.

Don't miss the Harriet Washington (#MedicalApartheid) speaking about her new book A Terrible Thing to Waste.   We’re basically operating in a sea — like a witch’s brew — of industrial chemicals that are poisonous and are weakening our cognition... "When lead was found to be devastatingly harmful... whites were able to go to the suburbs to housing that had never been exposed to lead... But black people were not allowed to move into suburbs." -- Harriet A. Washington.  Building Bridges brings you a powerful and indispensable program for everyone who cares about a just and healthy future for all people.   Harriet Washington asks the critical questions that get at the heart of racism and inequality in health, income social welfare, and power in twenty-first-century America.
