What it takes to build a movement

rossIn El Cerrito, low-income residents are getting pushed out of an RV park to make way for townhouses. We bring you a special report, then speak with the mayor. Plus: San Francisco Sherriff Ross Mirkarimi on why he’s still not sharing information with immigration authorities. Plus: a history of the movement that won the Americans with Disabilities Act, signed 25 years ago this week.

Guests:

  • Mark Friedman, Mayor of El Cerrito
  • Ross Mirkarimi, Sherriff of San Francisco
  • Mary Lou Breslin, co-founder of Disability Rights Education & Defense Fund. MBreslin-Aug14
