    Religion & Ethics NewsWeekly [#1625] AMERICA'S EVANGELICAL MECCA - Colorado Springs has been dubbed this nation's Christian Mecca because of the profusion of Evangelical Christian groups headquartered there - including Focus on the Family, a large, conservative and politically active ministry. But as Saul Gonzalez reports, Focus on the Family, for one, is re-thinking how deeply it should be involved in politics, and whether it needs to start building bridges to those with whom it disagrees.
    NYC RELIGIONS - New York has been called the most secular city in America, but a project called "A Journey Through NYC Religions" is attempting to disprove that.

    Washington Week [#5234H] * The latest showdown over deficit reduction has the White House and Congress trading blame for the lack of a deal rather than working together to reach a compromise.

We'll get answers and analysis on the politics of sequestration from John Harwood of CNBC and The New York Times.

This week Molly Ball of The Atlantic and Sari Horwitz of The Washington Post will report on the renewed push for tougher gun laws at the state and federal level in the wake of the Newtown school shooting and the deepening divide over gun rights.

    THIS WEEK in Northern California [#2418H] February 22, 2013 Guest Host: Jami Floyd.
    BAY AREA GUN VIOLENCE - An epidemic of mass shootings, including the brutal killings of 20 children and six adults from Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, has shaken the nation. But some urban communities live with the relentless reality of gun violence every day. Here in Northern California, in places like Oakland, San Jose, Richmond, Vallejo and Fresno, a recent violent crime surge has made residents anxious. We devote our full program this week to the topic of gun violence in our communities.
    Guests: Mina Kim, KQED California Report; Eva Paterson, President & Founder of Equal Justice Society; Allison Briscoe-Smith, Director, Center for the Vulnerable Child, Children's Hospital Oakland.
    SOLDIERS AGAINST VIOLENCE EVERYWHERE - In the past 5 years, there were more than 550 homicides in Oakland, most by gun fire. According to data compiled by the Urban Strategies Council, 143 Oakland residents age 17 and under were shot in 2011 - 6 of them fatally. A group residents is pleading to be heard by the police, policymakers, and their own community. They call themselves "SAVE," an acronym for "Soldiers Against Violence Everywhere."
    NEWSMAKER INTERVIEW: WILLIAM BRATTON - An interview with Oakland's controversial new police consultant as he prepares to tackle violence on the streets of one of the country's hardest hit communities.

    Moyers & Company [#207H] Taming Capitalism Run Wild * Even as President Obama's talking points champion the middle class and condemn how our economy caters to the very rich, the truth behind modern American capitalism is a story of continued inequality and hardship. Even a modest increase in the minimum wage - as suggested by the president - faces opposition from those who apparently pledge allegiance first and foremost to America's wealthy and powerful.
    Yet some aren't just wringing their hands about our economic crisis; they're fighting back. This week, economist Richard Wolff joins Bill to shine light on the disaster left behind in capitalism's wake, and discusses how to battle for economic justice. A noted professor emeritus at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, and now visiting professor at Manhattan's New School, Wolff has written many books on the effects of rampant capitalism, including Capitalism Hits the Fan.
    * Also on the broadcast, activist and author Saru Jayaraman marches on Washington with restaurant workers struggling to make ends meet, and talks about how we can best support their right to a fair wage. Jayaraman is the co-founder and co-director of the Restaurant Opportunities Centers United, which works to improve pay and working conditions for America's 10 million-plus restaurant workers. She is also the author of Behind the Kitchen Door, a new expose of the restaurant industry.
