Extra Edition: Boom of Street Food Vendors.

Food vendors rose in numbers in the streets of Fresno, in Central California, after the Covid pandemic. What’s behind this renewed enterprising spirit? What’s its impact on the local economy?

Guests: Melissa Montalvo, Reporter, Fresno Bee, Fresno, CA.

Parental Notification Policies Over LGBTQ+ Students. An increased number of California school districts are requiring school staff to inform a student’s parents if their child requests to change their name, gender expression, or pronouns. Parents who support these policies say it is their right to know. But state officials say they threaten students’ civil rights, educational opportunities and safety. What do students and families need to know?
