•Tune in tonight at 7pm for Democracy in Action, hosted by Kaitlin Sopoci-Belknap. She will talk with Pittsburgh City Councilman, Doug Shields, about the newly adopted ordinance to protect the residents and neighbors of Pittsburgh by banning the commercial extraction of natural gas within the city and establishing a bill of rights for Pittsburgh residents. Provisions of the ordinance will eliminate corporate personhood rights within the city, and elevate the rights of people, the community, and nature. Councilman Shields, the lead sponsor of the ordinance, is now reaching out to other communities to join in the fight for community rights. That’s on Democracy in Action, here on KMUD, tonight from 7 to 8pm.
This concludes the Community Safety and Awareness Report, which can be read online at kmud.org and heard weekdays at 11am, 3 pm, and as needed here, on KMUD.
