"FM in San Francisco and 89.3 of them in Sacramento. Good morning. The time now is 6 22. It's morning edition on I'm Brian. What early voting is happening in election offices across the Bay Area say they're already breaking records for voting turnout rates and voter registration. Shannon Lin reports during the 2016 presidential election around 875,000 Santa Clara residents had registered to vote. This year. The county Register reports that more than 1.2 million voters have registered person the county's ever passed a million. Evelyn Mendez is the spokesperson for the Santa Clara County Register. We've never had over a million voters, and Mendez says Early voting turnout this year has reached over 50% in 2016. It was 35%. And Alameda County Register. Tim do pre says his office has received around 556,000 early votes for 57% turnout rate. We've never seen this much early vote coming in which is exciting. It shows us that our voters are really executing in the early voting. Contra Costa County has also seen early turnout reached a record breaking 56%. Debbie Cooper is the register there and says the pandemic may have influenced voters to send in their ballots. But she also thinks it's because more people are paying attention to current events. Well, this is a historic election, not just her concert cost the county before the state and the nation, and people have really stepped up to register to vote. If you haven't voted yet, officials say the safest way is to drop it off at a polling location or the county designated drop box. I'm Shannon Lin kick you in the news. Many Bay area voters are casting their ballots with these issues in mind, climate change, racial justice and economic inequality. So for the sake of a good discussion lets say you're an environmentalist who wants to fix economic inequality and racial justice while fighting climate change and you suddenly have $30 billion to invest to help the state recover from the pandemic. What are you going to do? Former State Senate Pro TEM Kevin Daily own said he'd spend the money on electric vehicles. First order of business is gotta get diesel trucks off the road. Second is going to build out charging infrastructure for passenger cars. He was speaking on a panel last month of California climate leaders. Science reporter Kevin Stark thought it'd be a good idea to bring that same question to community groups in Oakland. He joins me now. Hey, Kevin. Hello, Brian. So I live in Oakland. I'm glad you decided to do this here. But why? Oakland, Oakland is one city where you have this intersection of some of the worst impacts of climate change and the Corona virus pandemic. Studies show that the fruit Bale neighborhood, for example, has high rates of Cove in 19 and air pollution might be one contributing factor. Here's Ami, rival research director for the Asian Pacific Environmental Network. Our members like to describe Oakland as a walk for pollution, because it's surrounded by freeways on every side. And it's in close proximity to the poor, right with all that diesel pollution and high rates of asthma. Okay, so how would she spend $30 billion Of all, recently published a report calling for California policy makers to invest not only in hard infrastructure such as climate adopted bridges, but what they call social infrastructure. We want to be investing in those existing community institutions like schools, libraries and community centers, which are really the social supports that stabilized communities. A school with the good air conditioner, for example, can be a place for people to cool down during heat wave. A library with a strong air filter could be a place to escape smoky air. These kinds of resilience. Hubs can make the whole neighborhood stronger. Now this sounds like it could also bring a lot of jobs with it. Is that true? Yeah, she makes that exact point. Okay, So what is the next great idea that you heard? Well, there's a solar idea from Crystal Huang. She's a worker, owner of people Power Solar Cooperative Grassroots Initiative to develop community solar in the East Bay. You know when we think of solar often it's this farm in some far flung location that generates power. And it's delivered over power lines with community solar people pull resource is to put panels around their neighborhood, you know on schools, apartment buildings and businesses and then share the electricity so people Regardless of their living situation, or whether they own rail estate or not, can now participate in the energy transition. Her idea is that community members can control their own power, literally, financially and politically. A grassroots model for renewable energy. Exactly. Are there any ideas about government investment? Yeah, actually a big, bold idea from Sun Resa Cooper. She works on community development for the Greenlining Institute, and they advocate for economic empowerment for people of color making recovery effort explicit about weight. Redlining, urban renewal, Even the foreclosure crisis of 2008. All of those were race conscious. It doesn't make sense that we would try to use a wreath neutral blanket policy to correct harms that have been done and communities of color. Especially when they're being disproportionately affected by coverted by the recession And now by climate change. Cooper recently co authored a report what she's calling a guidebook for government leaders and businesses looking to invest more equitably in places like Oakland. OK, so more equitable, direct investment. But don't you ultimately have to do something about housing? That's exactly what no knee session, says She's the director and co founder of the East Bay Permanent Real Estate Cooperative. The group creates affordable housing for people of color living in the East Bay. Her idea is to lift Oakland out of recession by facilitating homeownership and investing in local businesses. We would turn that $30 billion into a low interest, technical assistance, land and housing redevelopment funds, we would target Standing housing stock empty lots for land and housing acquisition projects. Sessions says leaders often treat housing in the economy as two separate issues, but they aren't all right. Kevin Stark of science Thank you. Thank you.

"Peace talks. Toe end decades of war in Afghanistan are grinding on some of the most difficult issues concern women their right to an education toe work to travel freely. But there are no women on the Taliban's negotiating team and only four in the government's delegation. NPR's DEA Hadeed spoke to one of them, Fawzia Koofi says she's a tenacious survivor. Yeah, the first day when I was born. I was left outside in the sun. Her mother was severely depressed and under pressure from her husband to bear, son after a few hours when my mother was okay and she realized that I'm there. Then she hold me and I already had spots off son born in my face. Despite that coffee thrived as her mother recovered. Soon she was excelling in school and even studied medicine, braving clashes that ravage Kabul during the country's civil war. Then, in the mid nineties, the Taliban came to power. I was in my first year when the Taliban came on a Friday morning and for coffee, everything changed. A woman cannot get out of their house. I cannot go to the offices and no university or school. She had to drop out after U. S led forces toppled the Taliban. Following 9 11 she ran for parliament. She was partly following her father's footsteps. He was a complicated man with seven wives and 23 Children. He was killed when coffee was three as he tried to mediate between more infections. But it was coffees own experiences that motivated her, especially the Civil War and the Taliban government That gave me the determination to join politics and she became a rare female Afghan legislator. Then the first woman to become deputy speaker of Parliament. She wrote a well received biography and even floated the idea of running for president in 2014. It didn't happen, but this year she was selected as one of the negotiators of peace talks with the Taliban. Coffee, says feminist lobbied hard to have women represented in the negotiations. We are very critical time of her history in this round off Afghan peace talks. Woman issue the rights the future as a major issue for discussion. But the government only selected full women in the 21 member delegation and coffee nearly didn't make it to peace talks at all that's being held in the Gulf State of Qatar. Because weeks before talk started on September 12 gunmen fighting her car. She escaped with light injuries and it never became clear who the assailants were. She did make it to negotiations, though, and she says just being there is an achievement, she says. It forces the Taliban to deal with women, even if some of them are so conservative that they refused to even look at her. I want them to respect the woman off venison by respecting us. I'm not asking a charity from them. It's my right. But coffee says she's negotiating more than women's rights. I do not only talk to them about women's rights, but I talk about the future of my country. We talk about ceasefire. We talk about everything that actually matters for my people. Negotiators on both sides are still figuring out procedure affairs and the Taliban's refusal to cut their attacks is threatening the talks. Still, she's prominent enough that she was believed to be in the running for the Nobel peace prizes here. She didn't win, but even the talk surrounding it had an impact. It gives more power char voice. It gives more legitimacy to our demands. She's not just referring to the Taliban, she says. It's a reminder to her own government that the world still cares about the fate of Afghan women. She Hadid. NPR NEWS, ISLAMABAD You're listening to weekend edition from NPR news. Live from KGB news.

More than 100 people at the jail have tested positive for covert 19 over the past week. Shannon Lin reports Christine Taylor's younger brother, has been an inmate at Santa Rita jail for three years. He's 27 years old and was in the middle of trial proceedings when the pandemic hit. He fell ill and tested positive for the virus in late March and was placed in solitary confinement. Taylor says he's recovered and is out of solitary, but he takes it upon himself to sanitize his cell. And she says her brother has not been given personal protective equipment with an outbreak hitting the jail and so little known about the virus tailor is afraid her brother might get reinfected, especially since he has an underlying condition. It's a situation where I have to always consider the fact that he'd die, and that will be the next phone call that I'm getting Alameda County Sheriff officials say cases were first detected on Wednesday and spiked Friday. With nearly 5% of the jails population of 1800 testing positive. Most are asymptomatic.

We mourn with the King Jr and the Montgomery story that inspired me. Imagine a young John Lewis in 1958 at 18 having arrived at college, picking up a comic book. Louis says the comic tuned him in to a greater story. Most Negroes in Montgomery, Alabama, are boycotting the city buses because a woman who refused to take a segregated seat was fined and police cars A comic book tells the story of Rosa Parks symbolic refusal, but it also gives a detailed account have had a protest nonviolently.
