CEC 2001-2

We decided to do a show on the difficulties that poor people run into when they are looking for education, jobs and homes. Most of us are immigrants so that seems to make it even more difficult.

Our show,"How our government spends the money...can we do a better job"? aired on WNYE on Thursday, April 25th. Our guests were David Weinberg from NYPIRG (NYPIRG is active in combating sweatshops and exploitation of immigrant labor) and Rosamaria Delatorre from the HUDSON GUILD (a program that counsels people that are homeless and fights for tenants' rights).

We were pleased by the number of people that called in and supported the show. Our thanks to our guests and our teachers.
