A reflection on Betty’s travels and experiences to California’s heartland — the Central Valley.


Episode two of The California Table, Central Valley Rising: Youth-Fueled Activism, is now available.

The second episode of my podcast focuses on the rising youth activism in the Central Valley — where unemployment, poverty, educational achievement, and health are lagging behind the rest of California.

Joining me on this episode are staff and activists with 99 Rootz: Crisantema Gallardo, Eugene Vang, and Yosseline Perez.

A project of Power California, 99 Rootz promotes youth organizing rooted in social justice with the mission of building leadership pathways for young people in the small towns surrounding Route 99 highway.

I hope you enjoy this episode, and always, your feedback is appreciated.
