Climate Activists Headed to Paris Give Us Their Take

Berkeley PoliceWe talk to one of the climate justice activists headed to Paris about what you work toward when you don’t have much hope for climate negotiations. Plus: Berkeley’s City Council is taking up dueling reports on how its police department turned a Black Lives Matter protest into a bloody street battle. But first: was the Planned Parenthood shootout in Colorado Springs just a fluke? We’ll talk to the head of an organization that tracks violence against clinics.

Guests:

  • Vicki Saporta, President and CEO of the National Abortion Federation
  • Pam Tau Lee, one of the crafters of the Principles of Environmental Justice, and a co-founder of the Asian Pacific Environmental Network and the Just Transition Alliance. She’s headed to Paris to attend the climate talks as part of the It Takes Roots delegation.
  • Alison Bernstein, Chair, Berkeley Police Review Commission
  • Andrea Prichett, co-founder of Copwatch (also a member of KPFA’s Local Station Board)
