Bridging the Divide
As President-elect Donald Trump continues forming his Cabinet, there is much division over his choices and the direction of the country. Here in the Bay Area, there have been protests as well as reports of racially motivated incidents in public and at schools. Thuy Vu is joined by three people from different backgrounds and political affiliations to discuss how the country can move forward.
• Matthew Del Carlo, California Young Republican Federation
• Sameena Usman, SF Bay Area chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations
• Bianca Ramirez, Fremont High School student
Interview with Copia CEO Komal Ahmad
With Thanksgiving around the corner, many are making plans to gather and share food. But there are many in the Bay Area who don't know where their next meal is coming from. Bay Area innovator Komal Ahmad's startup, Copia, has a mission to end hunger. Part mobile app and part "on the ground" logistics, the approach is straightforward - redistribute excess food from restaurants or hospitals - to those in need.
