  • Raul Marquez, a senior at McKay High School in Salem, thought his presentation to the United Way board to start a youth homeless shelter in his community would help get the proposal on their radar. Instead, he walked away with $110,000 in donations to get started. Raul joins us to discuss his project and what inspired him.
  • As the #MeToo movement continues to unfold, a new Oregon law in effect this month seeks to build protections for janitorial workers against sexual harassment, assault and other workplace abuses. We’re joined by Felisa Hagins, political director for SEIU Local 49, to learn more about the change.
  • Portland Police Chief Danielle Outlaw has been on the job for a few months now. We’ll sit down with her to find out her vision for her time as chief.
