  • Farm Workers to Farm Owners

    Where do racial justice and food justice meet? Perhaps at the point where long time farmworkers are able to buy their own land. In the United States today, 83 percent of farmworkers are Latinx but Latinx people own only three percent of the farms. Latinx farmers bring a wealth of knowledge to the US food system in terms of fresh produce, healthy techniques and a cooperative management style born out of years working as laborers-but they face unique challenges accessing the resources and aid they need to buy their land. As a generation of white family farmers ages out of the business of farming, a rising cohort of Latinx workers stands ready to take up the slack. In this episode, Laura receives a virtual tour of one organic farm from its intrepid owners and speaks with Dr. Laura-Anne Minkoff-Zern about her book "The New American Farmer." She also hears from veteran farm labor organizer Dolores Huerta about how helping Latinx farmers thrive would be good for eaters and the planet.

  • Transportation Is A Human Right

    The U.S. transportation system has long been rife with inequality, making it more difficult for low-income people, people of color, and people with disabilities to get where they need to go. When Covid-19 hit, ticket revenues shrank, workers got sick, and services were cut, even as low-income "essential workers" disproportionately depended on public transit to get to work. In rural communities, where public transit was already sparse and unreliable, owning a car literally became a matter of life and death. In this episode, Laura explores the history; a century ago, fears of a communicable disease helped turn the tide against public transportation for decades. Today, in the midst of another pandemic, how are public transportation systems, rural and urban, going to survive? What alternatives exist? And what if we consider not just new 'modes' of transport and new infrastructure, but the principle of "mobility" itself? Could new systems and better information sharing solve our transportation challenges?
