LETS TALK ABOUT PROPS...SHALL WE?
As part of our continuing coverage of this year’s election, we want to take a look at three ballot propositions related to criminal justice. Two would continue efforts to reform the system, a third would roll back reforms previously approved by voters.

UPDATE: CALIFORNIA'S HOMELESS STUDENTS
According to a new report out of UCLA, more than a quarter of a million K-12 California students experienced homelessness during the 2018-2019 school year. That number of students could fill the Dodger Stadium almost five times. The report also found that 1 in 5 community college students, 1 in 10 Cal State students and 1 in 20 UC students experienced homelessness. We explore why this is, and what can be done about it.

POETRY AS POLITICAL ACTIVISM
We talk to a 14-year-old poet activist about the intersection of politics and performance art. We also discuss how her personal encounter with ICE has shaped her views and how she uses her voice.
