Jennifer and husband Roy Trules cry as the names of victims are read aloud during a moment of silence concluding a vigil at San Manuel Stadium in San Bernardino on Thursday night, Dec. 3, 2015. Both were friends with 26-year-old Aurora Godoy of San Jacinto. Roy Trules first met Godoy more than three years ago when they both worked for the San Bernardino County Registrar of Voters.

A year ago today, the Inland Empire suffered a terrible attack. 14 employees of San Bernardino County's health department were killed by a co-worker and his wife. 22 others were injured.

The Inland Regional Center was the site. The group under attack were in a training session, with a holiday party to follow. Today on AirTalk, we’ll talk with members of the community to hear how they’re coping and healing one year later. We’ll also go over the Department of Justice review of the public safety response to the attack.

Finally, we’ll check in with you Muslim leaders in San Bernardino County about what life for Muslims in the area has been like in the year since the attacks.

We want to hear from you: One year later, what's changed in your community?  Does it feel united against terror, or divided by fear? If you live in the San Bernardino area, how have you been coping and healing? Join the conversation at 866-893-5722.


Frank Straub, Ph.D., director of strategic studies for the Police Foundation and co-author of the report for the Department of Justice on the public safety response to the San Bernardino terror attack
