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.

Youth Strike for Climate Justice - 28:59  

Youth Strike for Climate Justice

Four million protesters around the globe, led by youth, declared the time has come for action on climate change. Two hundred and fifty thousand marched and rallied in New York and we’re Building Bridges to those exuberant youth activists who led the way, and we all—young and old and everywhere in between—followed. We’re building bridges and fighting alongside the student leaders of the US Youth Climate Strike, the organizers of the Sunrise Movement, and other climate-focused groups to push the climate crisis into the center of the 2020 debate and propel the bold vision of a Green New Deal in Congress and across the country.  Friday, Sept 20th  was incredible—a vision of people power around the world—and we’ll bring you the highlights from the rally stage and from the throngs who took to the streets – nay took over the streets to leave you as inspired as it left us, and we’re betting as a result you’ll be ready to do more.
