KBBF Celebrates Mexican Independence Day

Bringing together community is a positive experience but, in times of uncertainty and hardship, it is essential. KBBF recognizes the need for neighbors and friends to gather this season, to feel safe and supported. On the eve of Independence Day, September 14th, there will be a commemorative event at the station, located at 1700 Corby Avenue, in Santa Rosa.

Ana Salgado and Patricia Moreno, co-hosts of the KBBF program “Compartiendo y Aprendiendo”—airing every Friday from 4 to 6pm—are organizing the event.Salgado describes it as an “…opportunity to provide a safe and reliable space for the community that has been hurt and rejected lately. To share their feelings and to bring their children and families to learn from their roots and why we are proud of who we are…Our existence prevails thanks to our resilience.”

Salgado says that Independence Day is meaningful because it represents, “the power of free and sovereign voting… We can make changes if we join together and exercise the right to vote. We encourage our young people to do it.”

This informational, family-friendly celebration is still in the planning stages. Find out more by contacting the station at (707) 545-8833.

Women’s Spaces Features Marnie Wroth and Susan Lamont

Last month, the Women’s Spaces program had a special interview with Marnie Wroth and Susan Lamont. Host Elaine Holtz shares, “They discussed the federal civil trial in which Marnie and her husband were plaintiffs whose rights were violated by the deliberate indifference of the Rohnert Park Police Department.” She adds, “…Susan Lamont witnessed with daily attendance at the trial and reports how the jury agreed with the parents of Branch Wroth and the evidence they presented, including police video cam recordings, to hold the Rohnert Park Police Department accountable with an award to the Wroths of $4 million.” Holtz observes, “This is a tragic and heartfelt look into the need for better understanding and training on community health issues by the police and their 911 responses.” To hear the show, consult the archives at www.womensspaces.com.
