Making Space

This week on North Gate Radio, we’re bringing you stories about people working to make space for themselves – and their communities. We talk to community organizers, mentors and queer workshop groups about the way’s they’re affecting social and political change.

The “Queer Ancestors Project” is a workshop in San Francisco for young artists. Reporter Annie Berman spoke with the program’s artists and teachers to find out more. In 1968, thousands of Mexican-American students from all over East LA staged a massive weeklong walkout protesting unfair education conditions. Decades later, younger Chicanas are still fighting. Reporter Ricky Rodas has the story. Find out how Oakland organizations are making efforts to provide more mentorship to youth and young adults? Reporter, Carla Williams finds out more.
