We became very aware during the pandemic shutdown how essential our unseen working people were to our lives. They are too often the voiceless whose work, lives, necessities, and solutions go largely unheard.
CA State Controller, Betty Yee, is bringing us a new podcast, something you may listen to on your computer with just a click. "A Seat at the Table" gives an outlet for those voices. As we approach Labor Day, those earning a living from the restaurant industry will be featured and heard. We look forward to future podcasts from Controller Yee. This is a potentially major contribution to the full inclusion of omitted people in our civic conversations - and, we hope, solutions.
From Controller Betty Yee:I am excited to announce the launch of my podcast, The California Table!
LISTEN TO EPISODE 1: On the High-Road: Righting the Restaurant Industry
I have been moved by so many throughout California who have stepped forward, before and during the COVID-19 public health crisis and recession to give voice to the needs and experiences of their communities --- communities often lacking a seat at the decision-making table.
Join me in meeting some extraordinary Californians who are creating their own tables to tackle some of the most pressing issues of our time.
I hope you will find these podcasts informative and inspiring as they call upon us to act and make a difference.
Thank you for listening to The California Table.
We at California Church IMPACT hope this has been insightful and that you will join future podcsts of "The California Table". Thank you.
