A highlight from How Illustrator Andrea Campos Is Using Art to Spread Positivity

"Thank you so much for doing this. Thanks for having me. I'm so excited. You're a triple cancer, which I don't know that I've ever met a triple cancer before. I feel so exposed. Yes, I am a dribble cancer. It's not something I normally tell people 'cause I think cancers get a bad rep for being too sensitive. And I'm that times three, but I've learned to live with it. And I feel like I'm finally in a position to work wise, where being soft is a good thing. So I feel like, okay, universe, you led me to probably one of the 5 career paths where being super sensitive and soft can actually be a good thing. So here we are. Well, I say it as a fellow cancer, though not a triple cancer because what I see your artwork, it is so upbeat, and it is so positive that I'm like, is this a reflection of Andrea or is this Andrea psyching herself? Her emo self out. That's interesting. I think with my art,

A highlight from Rethinking Thanksgiving

"Why are people less important finding them when they go missing? And then finding out who killed them. I have a friend, his name's Dan Davis, who went missing in Albuquerque. He's nobody's been able to find out where he's at. It's terrible. I mean, and so obviously as non natives is going to be celebrating this holiday that's coming up on Thursday. I mean, this Thanksgiving, I'm thankful for the earth. The plants, the animals, and the people who have cared for them, you know? How should we be seeing this holiday? What should we do with this holiday? I think being compassionate for other people. One thing I've been seeing is a lot of people complain about homelessness. We'll do something about it. Help these people out. It doesn't help when you're raising rent and making things so high priced your pricing people out of a home or an apartment or whatever, being compassionate, go volunteer and help them. There's kids that don't have a home, like people should not be living like that. And I find that people who are not compassionate to help their fellow human beings, they're still human beings, help them out. I mean, yeah, that's really what we're talking about the problem here is that people see other people and don't see them as human beings. They see them as other, right? And it's just because they look different or they come from a different place, which is so strange, it's so superficial, so shallow, but professor laval, I want to thank you for coming on. I mean, where can people find you and your work online? Well, they can go to not in our honor dot com, which is our website. And we can just Google my name and stuff will pop up. I'm doing stuff with a women's journalism group where we're working on missing a murder indigenous people stories too as well. I look forward to that work. Thank you so much for coming on and I hope you have a happy and restful break for whatever it's worth. Thank you for coming on.

A highlight from How Kate del Castillo Built (and Rebuilt) Her Life

"Castillo has built and rebuilt her life over and over as a successful actress, making the crossover from Mexico to the United States as a woman who chose to leave an abusive marriage and then again most recently following the very public fallout of her meeting with former cartel leader Javier Guzman El Chapo. Part of that rebuilding includes Kate's return to telemundo's la Reina del Sur, where she plays her favorite anti hero that is some. More than ten years have passed since the show's original release, and we talk about the lessons Kate has learned in that time. Her other projects, including her production company jola wood and her new peacock dark comedy, about four women who band together after the police arrest their husbands for being tied to the same criminal organization. And of course, hurrah insights on messing up, living with the consequences, and how she learned to trust her gut. Kate, thank you so much for being here. Of course, thank you, Alicia for having me. I was thinking in preparing for this interview with you of the interview I did for Latina to Latino with Eva Longoria. And Eva talks a lot about the fact I know your Friends. Yes. She talks a lot about the fact that she became famous at 30 years old. And that meant she was a fully formed adult when she became famous and that really gave her a ton of perspective. So to think of you at 19, becoming this huge celebrity, were you ready for it? I don't think anybody can be ready for fame. I knew about it because of my dad. So it was nothing new for me. And I think thank God that's why I keep my feet on the ground because I've known this for all my life. That's all we lived out of, you know, out of acting. And I think that's also why I respect and I admire everybody who's in the industry because it's so hard. But that's so, so I've been pretty famous or living with fame, my entire life. I think one of the reasons that we all find that asa so fascinating, I think especially those of us who are Latina, is that she's operating in a man's world. Absolutely. And she is operating in a world where a certain point she has not taken seriously where she is diminished where she needs to prove and then prove herself again. And it's sort of like no matter where you work or what you do, we have all, I think, had that experience, and I wonder for you in your own life when you have run up against that type of misogyny or expectation that you are not as competent as you are. Oh my God, yes, well, I think to be honest and sadly, unfortunately, I don't know a woman that hasn't been abused in one or another way, which is really sad. So yes, I've been abused in many ways in my life. I still feel like I'm a struggling actor still in America, you know? Which is crazy, but I still struggle with stereotypes in America. I still struggle with being a Latina in one of them me to wear tight dresses and sexualize me. I think there's a lot in the same industry to learn about us. That is kind of, you know, sometimes we're in 2022 and this is getting there, maybe, but in a very low slow way. There's kitaka actor, there's also queer Castillo businesswoman. And I want you to take us back if there was a moment or a series of moments where you said it's not enough for me to act. I need to begin to own these stories. I need to be able to produce these stories. And the genesis of chola would. Yes, of course, well, it's because of that, we have to change the narrative in only the people who are in these key positions can do that. And for me, it's producing. So if I'm going to produce, I'm going to produce something that I think it's not stereotyped is great for not only Latinos to see because I don't want to label that labeling myself. I want to do mainstream. And as an actress, I can't still wait sitting down with my arms crossed to have this amazing role to come to me. I have to do something. So that's why I created chola with productions with my two other friends. Also, it was out of a moment in my life where I had a no jobs, the contracts I had because of the whole chapel thing. They took them. So I found myself with a lot of bills. With a house and with everything that I couldn't pay for. So we started chola and we trying to help each other, the three of us, women, latinas, smart, powerful in so many ways. We said, this can happen to us. You know, we have so much with smart. We have all the know how we are creative women. So let's do something. And that's why we created chorla wood. Did you know that there's a diaper with a stretchy waistband and no fillet tubs you gotta mess with? Forget having to mess with fiddle diaper tabs.

You just said ten different things that I have questions about. So I'm going to start with this, which is, what are the roles that you wish you were offered or you wish you were considered for? That you're not. Well, something that is not only for Latina. You know, I can play whatever. Why label people from where they come from. You know, unless it was an amazing, I could be, you know, harrowing a Latina herring in a marvel movie for I'm just thinking out loud. You know, something like that. And it's hard to find something like it was hard for me to find something like that reyna del Sur, you know? Like there is some in those others. Amazing character of this woman living in a man's world and having to think and strategize and without sexualizing her. So it's a lot of things and on the other hand, I need to work because I still have the house and I still have the bills. But now in a different position, thank God, where I can be a little bit more peaky about what I do and what I accept. And also I'm producing now so that's really great because I not only producing for me to lead on everything that I produce. So I think it's really cool. And also, I think that those mixes intertwining between actresses that they do a lot in America. You know, let's Witherspoon with Nicole Kidman with Jennifer Aniston and all this amazing women that they come together and they say yes, that's what I want to do with amazing

A highlight from No More Sleeping Giant

"In those midterms. Because I've been following you forever and you've been saying, you may make a lot of predictions that this was going to be happening. And I kind of feel like we're past the this is going to be happening. It's happening. So what are your big takeaways? There's no doubt if anybody ever walks up to me anymore and starts talking about the Latino vote being asleep in John. I may knock their hat off their heads because I'm going to tell you right now. I don't want to hear nothing else about a sleeping giant. I don't want to hear nothing else about us not participating because our voice was heard. And a unique thing about what Julio you're talking about is it was heard in lots of different ways in every corner of the country and for different parties because it just showed Tuesday not the complexity of Latino voters, not the Latino vote. But Latino voters, whether they were Republican Cubans in Miami dade, Mexican rednecks like me and east Texas or on the east side of Las Vegas, our voice was heard and we had a dramatic impact on these midterm elections. So let's break this down. Why don't we just go through the country? Because I think you're absolutely right. This is no longer a Latino vote, never was a Latino vote. It's where Latinos make a difference. And it was all over the country. What's the first one you want to talk about that really people should be like, ah, okay, I get this. Where do you want to start? I want to start in Pennsylvania because that's the one nobody thought we would win, and on election day, people had given up on Pennsylvania and John fetterman. And you Julio, you know more so than probably anybody on this program. Maybe more so than anybody listening, but some of you will be shocked to know that there are a lot of Hispanic voters in Pennsylvania and they're all concentrated in one side of the state and they're all from one origin spot in the middle of the Caribbean ocean in a little island named Puerto Rico, where I was born. Exactly, and you know your cousins, your tios, and all of your family that you've known, you've known a lot of people who have either moved from New York to eastern Pennsylvania or from New Jersey to eastern Pennsylvania or left the island normally because of a hurricane or some other environmental tragedy or what's going on with the economy. There's lots of reasons why there is a ton of Puerto Ricans living in the eastern side of Pennsylvania. Over 300,000 have moved there in the last ten years, so they had a big impact. I ran a big operation there for the Senate majority pack. We did a bunch of baseball games in Spanish. We did a bunch of Spanish advertising. We were knocking on Latino doors in north Philly, but Latinos really showed up at over 70% democratic. Those are numbers. Obama numbers. We used to get back when I was a young man, right? But that's Obama, Latino vote numbers. Right. The elusive 70% that people talk about, I do think Pennsylvania is the untold story of this election. And it's positioned now given what Shapiro did. You know, there is a presidential candidate that this guy does a good job. I mean, I thought Shapiro was impressive. Fetterman was impressive. I love the fact that you mean you called out the baseball ads, you know, we still watch the playoffs and the Phillies were in the playoffs and what better way to capture Latino voters during the World Series or wherever. All right, we went to Pennsylvania. You want to talk a little bit about where you're from. I know I've done in Texas. Texas. Yeah, Texas was no big surprise to me, you know, beto put on a great campaign. He lost by a good margin, but it's an off year election, not as many people voted, and it was just tough for beto, but in the valley was really unique. We had these three big congressional races down there, all the Republicans thought they were going to win all three. They had been redistricting in the Republicans end up winning one that they had redrawn to be way more Republican than the other two, so nothing in the valley really surprised me, but a lot of the pundits are like, I thought we were going to win all three of these Latino votes. This Myra, Flores, incumbent, those seats were safe democratic seats. If we were to lose those, we were going to lose 40 seats on election night. And so nothing new really happened there. The voter turnout was just a little bit less than 2018, but I remind all of you Brown nerds out there like me. That 20 18 was 78% higher than 20 14, so it was a really high bar to reach when you didn't have a Donald Trump in The White House in a real boogeyman, so Texas was there, but also Latinos really showed up in Arizona and Nevada for the Democrats. Big operations. The one thing I'll flag about those two states that we should talk about, or at least mention, is that the Senate majority pack in outside groups spent over get this. 28 $1 million in Spanish language only TV and radio for 6 months. They ran the chuck roach playbook of long-term communication to our community and was run by Latino consultants hired by the Senate majority pack and then you couple that with the money they moved into groups on the ground that had an infrastructure on the ground like lucha in Arizona, somos and make the road in Nevada. That was your formula for success in those two places. All right, so you got Nevada, you got Texas, Arizona, which also won the ballot measure for in state tuition for no matter of your immigration status. So beautiful. Focus a little bit on Arizona. Where are we? I mean, I know that Juan guiso Mani was the first Latino Republican. He won the Arizona 6 district, but it was a good night for the blue team, and how did Latinos and young Latinos play a role in that? We'll get the numbers back, you know, people love to pontificate and me and Mike Madrid like to argue back and forth of which numbers to believe and that's what we do is too old Mexican operatives. But the fact of the matter is we'll know exactly who voted when we get the voter file back up until they get the actual numbers back. I'm going to scream at Mike and he's going to scream at me about who's right and who's right numbers. And so we will have that information back. But right now, based off of the early vote numbers, if you look at the percentage of the Latino vote in early vote, if that comes out to be what it normally is for the general election, we're going to perform rat at the two 18, the 2018 numbers are just a little below, and in an off year election, when inflation was so high, when gas was so high, oh my God, all the things and we still performed at that level. I want somebody to throw a Latino parade for God's sakes. We shouldn't even have been in the ball game. But here we are. All right, listen, let's just break this on. You've heard my theory. I've shared my theory with you about no. All right, let me try this, right? Because I think I tweeted about this. Okay, everyone can talk about Florida for a minute. But what they're missing in all of this and this is I think the democratic playbook for 2024 and future cycles is that now you have the west and the southwest outside of your home state, but eventually that could change, really becoming either your solidly blue like a California or other places, or you're becoming blue ish, maybe like Arizona. You're solidly blue like Colorado. New Mexico is all blue now. Nevada, you know, give or take an election or two has been solidly blue. You have this sort of neutralizing west southwest to combat sort of the Florida and the Texas. What's the difference between those? I mean, you're the Mexican redneck. It feels to me like there's an awakening of politics and civic engagement out in predominantly Latino states in the Southwest and the west who are of Mexican descent, Mexican American, how do you begin to break it down? Because then we can talk about the northeast and the Midwest, but give me that. The main reason that what you just described is because a, it's mainly Mexicans and B they've been there like me for a long time. So you have multi generations coming of age that are just younger and lots more of them and younger Latinos there's just no I wrote a book about this called tio Bernie, like they are way more progressive they are way more awoken to what their culturally is and some of them even like me whose mother and fathers were chastised threatened if they even acted Mexicans are rediscovering their roots and really proud of their hint they and reconnecting with the culture, which is making them even more democratic because you see a Republican Party that's about build the walls, cages, and all the things that the Republicans are talking about. So you start seeing this migration to the left in the southwest states at as much different as you were saying than Florida and other places because of where they're from, country of origin, and coming of age of being just younger

According to a recent study by the la times latinos and latinas are underrepresented across all aspects of television and film productions despite making up nearly twenty percent of the us population that dino's and latina's constitute only six percent of main cast members less than nine percent of writers seven percent of directors and six percent of senior executives. The presence of african and indigenous latinos in the industry is even smaller but statistics can only tell us so much how latino individuals and communities are portrayed.

Looking Back at the Secure Fence Act

"This october will mark fifteen years. Since president. George w bush signed the secure fence act of two thousand and six bill. I'm about to sign is an important step. In our nation's efforts to secure our border and reform immigration system congress approved the act with bipartisan support authorizing nearly seven hundred miles of new barrier along the southwestern border with mexico up until this point just a few dozen miles of border wall had been built and that happened under democratic president. Bill clinton under president george w. bush the secure fence act would focus on militarizing the nearly two thousand mile long border with mexico the act allowed vehicle. Barriers checkpoints increased uses of satellites cameras and other technologies order. Property owners would soon received letters from the federal government asking them for permission to enter and survey their land. This would lead to legal battles and property seizures with many of these moving into new administration's today reporter aaron nelson takes us to a university in brownsville. Texas we're dr. juliet.

Two thousand seven a few months after the secure fence act became law the federal government targeted. Utd's land and other private land to try and build a border wall as president of the university.

Castilla was proclaimed precedent earned. From what i understand. I mean gusty people say like oh he's just coming out of nowhere. I mean he does have some political experience right. He organized in education. From what i read right. I mean he didn't just literally come from the air. You know what. I mean like he. He has been involved in some form of organizing in the past correct. Yeah that's correct so casteel was the leader of a teachers strike in two thousand seventeen. Nevertheless it's true that his victory wasn't inspected by deleting peru and of course the righ-wing is not satisfied. And they they still want to get rid of castilla.

It became such a part of my world and my making as an artist. My family influence me a great deal as a poet. My mother is a painter and My stepfather is a writer and both of them gave me a lot of permission to follow my dream and no-one dismissed my wanting to write poems. And then my stepmother and my father were also very supportive and My father was an educator and my stepmother at the time was a speech pathologist so language was key in that household.

The Problem of Femicide in Puerto Rico With Activist Tania Rosario Mndez

"Tanya there is a renewed focus on femicide in puerto rico but this is of course sadly not a new phenomenon. What is your earliest memory of stories. Like this is actually a story. My grandmother told me when she was very young. She married a someone else not not my grandfather. So she's this young wife. She has two small girls and her husband used to lock her up in the house. She told me this story and she was not being. She was not even resentful. She was just telling me this story about her first husband and how he would leave to work and leave her locked up. She was saying how silly he was so jealous. Like that right so for me. I was terrified. The idea that someone else who loves me an adult and in her house because he was jealous. Someone will look at me are for me. It was a -rageous. But i don't remember voice saying that to her because she was so matter-of-fact about it and that's the earliest memory i have. I was thought nine a grueling me. And how normalize it was for several generations in my in my country. We culture that men do that women. Draw a line for me as you see it from that story to how we're still talking about femicide in the year. Twenty twenty one. I think we've overcome some obstacles. But sometimes i think everything that has been gains always the parable of being lost so way not on we have to fight key what we gain but also to forward was boulder and expensive ways off noli dealing move. The problem itself generates violence vosa with naming storytelling. It's how do you tell the story of the victim. Why do you say deaths and you don't say homicide because i'm raising a daughter and sometimes i terrified that she's going to go out in a world that doesn't think of her as full human.

The Effects of Trump's Migrant Protection Protocol

"So it's sunday march seven and it's to be eleven. Am and right. Now i'm in the modus mexico I'm in a small plus that is right next to the microphone. Tenting cat mint is. I recorded this audio earlier this year the day after a migrant camp just across from brown so in south texas was cleared out for almost two years it was the home for hundreds of mostly central americans and mexicans seeking asylum in the us most had finally been allowed into the us some were sent to nearby shelter before they can be processed into the country others however were left in limbo. You know what i'm looking inside and it's really really quiet I'm used to you know hearing you know kids families moms dads talking to each other running around playing really really quite now at one point this now. Empty area held more than three thousand asylum. Seekers forced to wait in mexico as their cases made their way or us immigration courts.

The End of DACA?

"So if you're someone who is a dreamer right now who does not have daca. You can have daca right. Is that correct. Yeah i think like in the most basic of census right like that is probably the interpretation that most folks are walking away. And if you know you're an outsider. Meaning that you don't have or you're trying to essentially figure something out that might just be the simplest way to look at it but for the people who are in the process of applying for dhaka for the first time right they are seeing a lot of very specific questions that have quite just been answered right. Judge heynen though federal judge in the southern district of texas who has been essentially overseeing a variety of different cases on this subject as made no secret that he's not a fan of the daca program so people need to understand that first and foremost number two his ruling basically states that new applicants as you mentioned julio people who are in the process of applying for dhaka for the first time short of them being fully approved into the program will no longer be eligible for the program. What exactly does that mean. May the young daca applicant. Who says well. I sent in my application. It was received. I gotta biometrics appointment. This is where they go and take your finger branson that take a photo and all this jazz. You know i did dad. I haven't heard back from you. If my application going to be considered is gonna be frozen.

This is the giving people some context portion of the show so basically they say you know based on the order issued by the us district court for the southern district of texas and texas.

What Is the U.S. Doing to Help Cuba?

"Get to it with our first topic. Which is actually about the historic protests in cuba where thousands of people took to the streets all across the country amid an economic crisis in food shortages exacerbated by the corona virus pandemic. In the last few days we've seen the government in cuba restrict internet access and block most social media sites. Although from what i read. Twitter is still like bobbin in cuba because the government uses twitter and also there were reports of over one hundred people who have been arrested or missing and that actually is. According to amnesty international and at least one person has died in clashes with police on wednesday. The president of cuba miguel diaz canal announce that they would lift restrictions to allow travelers to bring food and medicine into cuba from abroad. There is also an admission by him saying that his government could have done better with these protests that was interesting meanwhile back in the united states i feel like a comic book like meanwhile back at the white house on thursday president joe biden call. Cuba quote failed state and condemn their government's actions. We also know that the us has a role in this as there has been a decades old. I mean more than sixty years trade embargo by the united states against cuba which essentially prevents any business between the countries didn't back to nineteen sixty two k. So this has become an american tradition. Now the embargo just what it is. Yeah right you know what i'm saying. So but then the other thing is during the trump administration and this is what i find interesting. There were more sanctions put on cuba under trump and flight and remittances from family members in the us to cuba were even further restricted by the bynum ministrations. Pretty much has done. Nothing since biden has come into office. Nothing's really changed when it comes to cuba which you would think by now you know if we all remember obama he was like. Let's lift the embargo. You know what i mean. It was like you're in that administration. Joe right but according to the vitamin administration. They said that they are reviewing these policies but they've yet to reverse. Any of them are fabulous intern. Sarah her shandor spoke with an i guests. She has been on. Itt before seventy nine three goes who is a correspondent for political and somebody is of cuban-american descent and she has been reporting on cuba. This week and sabrina talked about the government's suppressive tactics like cutting internet access. And what cubans are hoping for so. Let's listen connecting for people has been a difficult. There's friends that. I haven't heard from in days that i know went out for the protests in there is that frustration anxiety about were. They beat in where they arrested. Are they missing an. It's hard to connect with people at this moment but a lot of people feel a level of frustration and desperation. That i had not heard before i mean. People have been tired of the dictatorship in cuba. But i will actually say from my perspective. Who was born and raised in cuba has been in exile in the united states for the majority of her life at this point. She's ninety one and she is optimistic. That change can happen. I mean her attitude about this is it can't stay this way forever and that these human rights can be violated forever. People can't be going hungry in dying on the streets from the pandemic without access to a hospital without access to medicine let it cannot continue that way indefinitely so that if it doesn't happen this time it has to happen at some point

How Will the Cuban Government React to the Protests?

"Big question for me is sort of. How do you describe the cuban government right now to the view. What kind of government is it. I mean you hear. Words like dictatorship in authoritarian and his government. I mean you hear repression you hear even these reports of people getting detained and you see right. You go on social media and it's an obviously there's a lot of politicization about this topic and you really. It's really hard to navigate through those waters. So what's the best way to describe like the dissatisfaction with the government of cuba as you know as best as you can from the cuban people perspective you know. Language is tricky and this is not to evade the question. But i think that language choices often obscure some of the complexity of the analysis that that's required and that's not to sidestep the authoritarian practices that we've seen in the past couple of days fantasize that the fact that the cuban government is a one party state that doesn't allow other political parties are organized political opposition in a legal way. But i think you know there is this kind of tendency to sort of refer in an abstract way to a regime. Or sometimes you know. Nc state the system of certainly on the part of cubans on the island and in the diaspora on the one hand. Those words make a lot of sense because they are in part a result of the projection of the cuban state itself as simply kind of monolithic entity that is the representation of the people in speaks for the people with one voice. But just like the cuban people are not made up of one political strain of thought. There is diversity in the cuban government. You know whether you like it or not or think it's sufficient or not and i would say it's insufficient right. There are actions of the cuban government that are more pro economic reform less forum. I mean there doesn't seem to be however any kind of fraction government right now when it comes to maintaining one-party rule right and certainly people on the street. Many of them are just demanding. That right simply put

"June twenty eighth nine thousand nine hundred sixty nine fifty two years ago. Police raided the stonewall in a gay bar and the uprising. That followed was led by trans activists. Marsha p johnson and sylvia rivera and it sparked a movement that has continued for decades marsha and sylvia like the trans vibe in lower manhattan at the time. It was real. They were taking up space at the stonewall inn and other places and that's why when the police raided they were like nana. You're not gonna quietest so. The first pride march in new york city was held on the one year anniversary of that uprising at stonewall similar marches went on in chicago san francisco los angeles but the history of that is rooted in resistance towards police violence over the last few years. It's like you know. Hey everybody is celebrating pride there you see. Cvs there you see comcast there you see. At and t. Putting out statements basically professing to be lgbtq allies but still giving money to politicians who are pushing anti lgbtq legislation and this is just three out of the twenty five companies that are actually pushing anti lgbtq federal state politicians. So as june comes to an end can do a little bit of a temperature. Check kinda how are you feeling at this moment in our. I'm wondering how are you thinking about this moment in going forward in two thousand twenty one post pandemic to put it singly. I think that aside from everything i think. That pride is as much about a recommitment to the unfinished business of nineteen. Sixty-nine as it is a celebration celebration has to be a part of any type of commemoration especially for people color. It's how we retain joy in the moments of difficulty but at the same time. I think that we have to recognize that. There's a lot of unfinished business. And specifically when it comes to the intersection of gender identity and race and economic opportunity all of those things that sylvia and marsha embodied in their life of the challenges in the hope that still remains very much on the table. And so i think that's what pride is every year and that's what i look to do with a recommitment

Nancy marshall. Genzer gets us going with a look into that. The overall unemployment rate for may was five point. Eight percent the rate for hispanic workers was more than a percentage point above that for black workers more than three percentage points higher. And so it's like well. Why is that.

I think much of it is is structural racism When you think about who was able to get vaccinated i it was people that had broadband who probably head jobs.

This is america so now from not far from where i live here in the very latin next community vernon here in los angeles families have been waiting for over three years to have lead contamination. Cleaned out of their community. Contamination came from the exile plant which melted down. Used lead acid car batteries. You don't want that in your backyard. But that's what these families had in their backyard which state regulators had allowed to operate on a temporary permit for more than three decades so state regulators like thirty. But you keep doing it. And then they kept letting them do it for over thirty years. It's crazy right. And what can i tell you. More about this. Despite history of air pollution and hazardous waste violations. They were still continued to operate ex. Able to operate it. California health department analysis found that nearly three hundred children under six years old living near exide have elevated blood lead levels in two thousand twelve. We've known this for a while. The last year the plant was in full operation in twenty twenty.
