Building Bridges Radio: Your Community & Labor Report

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.

Against The Death Penalty: Wrongful Conviction & Exoneration -28'  

Against The Death Penalty: Wrongful Conviction & Exoneration
with
Jeffrey Deskovic, exoneree, The Jeffrey Deskovic Foundation for Justice

Exoneration has been incredibly important for those who oppose capital punishment  —since the death penalty was reinstated in 1976, 138 death row inmates have had their convictions overturned. Building Bridges highlights The Jeffrey Deskovic Foundation For Justice that came into being for the prevention and eradication of wrongful convictions, as the result of its founder’s own wrongful conviction for rape and murder at age 16.  At 33 years of age Jeff was exonerated and left prison, with a mission to prevent what happened to him from happening to others.

    maybe i am as well against the death penalty. at times some crime takes a decade or more for the truth to really come out. we might as well give those who were convicted the right to prove themselves innocent.
