Extra Edition: Historic Funds for Radio Bilingüe.

This week, Radio Bilingüe and California Assemblymember Joaquin Arambula are announcing an historic investment in Radio Bilingüe that will allow the Latino public radio network to empower the next generation of community media producers and bring its multilingual program services to new levels of quality and responsiveness for audiences in the San Joaquin Valley, California and beyond.

Fresno Arts Funding Plan Under Scrutiny. Measure P is a tax-funded plan approved by voters to support parks and arts programs in the city of Fresno, CA. Now the city is working on plans and guidelines to spend the money on local cultural arts. Is everyone in the arts community equally at the table?

How are Latino students in California’s Central Valley doing? State and Central Valley education leaders convene in a virtual forum to discuss this matter.
