This week our show starts off at Jesse G. Sanchez Elementary school where the Alisal Union School Board met to discuss school resource officers (SROs) being on Alisal campuses. We spoke to Israel Villa of MILPA, Salinas Police Chief Adele Fresè, and community members about their thoughts on having SROs on Alisal campuses. The issues of SROs has been in the news a lot recently as it was turned down at the Salinas Union High School District and the Police Department has until the end of August to use this grant for SROs or it will expire.
Our episode shifts over to the XL Publichouse where Rafael and Dom continue the discussion on SROs. The conversation moves to cover other topics such as a recent workshop Rafael attended on non-profits working with immigrants, we touched on the sad news of those who were found dead in a trailer in San Antonio when they tried to enter the country. Dom explains why he still hasn't seen 13th on Netflix even though he knows he should have, hear talk on the recent Trump rant and ban of transgender soldiers, and we end on a positive note as we talk about the film "Dolores" a documentary on the life of Dolores Huerta coming to Salinas in September.
