Race for the White House, Inspiring Young Readers, Oakland Sex Trafficking (Episode #335H)

KQED 9: Fri, Jul 22, 2016 -- 8:00 PM

Race for the White House
After a rocky week, Republicans wrap up their national convention in Cleveland with Donald Trump "humbly and gratefully" accepting the party's presidential nomination. We get analysis and review of the week and look ahead as Democrats get ready to kick off their convention on Monday. Thuy Vu sits down with political strategists Sean Walsh and Mary Hughes and KQED political reporter Marisa Lagos.

Inspiring Young Readers
Bay Area native Gene Luen Yang is the first graphic novelist to be named the National Ambassador for Young People's Literature. Yang talks about his work and about finding identity, culture and belonging through books. With his platform, "Reading Without Walls," Yang hopes to challenge and inspire young readers to discover unfamiliar worlds through the pages of books.

Oakland Sex Trafficking
"We're not surprised," say some youth service providers about the recent allegations of officer sexual exploitation roiling the Oakland Police Department and other Bay Area law enforcement agencies. Many say the case is emblematic of a larger systemic problem that can plague law enforcement agencies dealing with a vulnerable population. We hear from Youth Radio's Natalie Bettendorf and Denise Tejada, who have been covering "the track," a strip of Oakland's International Boulevard known to many as the city's red-light district.

Race & Police Training, Roadblocks to Mental Health Services, Republican National Convention (Episode #334H)

KQED 9: Fri, Jul 15, 2016 -- 8:00 PM

Race & Police Training
The recent deadly shootings of black men in Louisiana and Minnesota, as well as the killings of five officers in Dallas, have generated much debate over the relationship between race and police use of force. Law enforcement agencies across the nation and here in the Bay Area are under intense scrutiny amid demands for change. UC Berkeley professor Jack Glaser and Richmond police Lt. Felix Tan join Thuy Vu to discuss police training.

Roadblocks to Mental Health Services
More than 43 million Americans suffer from depression, anxiety and other mental health issues. But more than half never get help -- even those who have insurance. State and federal laws were supposed to fix this. But even in places like the Bay Area, where there's an abundance of therapists, insured patients struggle to find mental health care. KQED News Health Reporter April Dembosky explains.

Republican National Convention
With the Republican National Convention kicking off in Cleveland on Monday, Donald Trump is expected to claim the party's presidential nomination despite opposition from some quarters within the GOP. Security concerns also loom large, given the violence that has broken out during protests at Trump rallies. Republican strategist Sean Walsh joins KQED's Senior Editor for California Politics and Government Scott Shafer.
