APEX Express

APEX Express – August 9, 2012

This has been a tragic week with a gunman opening fire at a Sikh gurdwara in Wisconsin and a massive Chevron refinery in Richmond catching fire and sending toxic fumes into the air forcing thousands to shelter in place and sending hundreds to local emergency rooms.

Tonight, we bring you tape from the Chevron Town Hall on Tuesday and we’ll talk with a local Sikh activist Gurinder Wadhwa and film maker Valarie Kaur about the implications of this recent tragic incident.

With Hosts Preeti Mangala Shekar and No-No Girl.
