News Panel: SF's homeless problem, safety concerns over the Bay Bridge, and more

Homeless families and advocates call on San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee to open vacant public housing units for an increasing number of homeless families. Nearly 2,200 of the city's public school students are homeless. A recent investigation by the Sacramento Bee into falsified Caltrans inspection reports raises questions over the safety of the new eastern span of the Bay Bridge. Voters may get another chance to voice their support or opposition to California's three-strikes sentencing law, which puts offenders in prison for 25 years to life after their third felony violation.

"The Grove" filmmaker interview

Director Andy Abrahams Wilson talks with Belva Davis about his film, "The Grove." The National AIDS Memorial Grove, a seven-acre sanctuary in San Francisco's Golden Gate Park, pays tribute to the hundreds of thousands of people in the United States who died from AIDS. The Grove has helped a community in crisis find healing and remembrance in nature, but the struggle to remember takes an unexpected turn when stakeholders of the memorial seek broader public recognition and a heated debate ensues about what constitutes an appropriate memorial to the AIDS epidemic. "The Grove" airs on KQED-9 on December 12 at 10pm.
