Politics, government and public life for Southern California
In advance of the 2012 political conventions, KPCC & WNYC are gathering stories of how you came to care about the issue that matters the most to you in a series we’re calling That’s My Issue. Tell us the story of how a particular experience shaped your opinions about something originally, or changed an opinion you used to hold.
It can be from the last four years, or from early in your life. Your experience could have clarified an issue, or made it more complicated. Did you grow up poor? Become rich? See your parents get married or divorced? Grow a business? Become uninsured? Move to this country or get away?
Whether it’s cultural, economic, environmental, or whatever – tell us a story. If you care about it, we want to hear about why. You'll be able to create a custom badge like the one above, record your stories directly from your computer, and read guest posts about a whole host of issues. We’ll be featuring your stories on-air at KPCC and WNYC, and online at KPCC.org/politics. We're listening.
I covered the 14th Annual Water Harvest Festival this past weekend. It was really interesting to learn about water conservation and the value of water. I am again inspired to save water and help save the planet!
The event was at the Edward C. Little Water Recycling Facility, hosted by The West Basin Municipal Water District.
Around 1,500 people from the public showed up! There were also 45 vendors educating the public about water and the importance of conserving it!
I will have some facts for you in the upcoming video story I'll post when it's done!
I am done with my "Movie in the Park" story for El Segundo TV! Here it is! I had a lot of fun shooting it. There was a lot of fun activities going on and some good ol' fashioned American food.
Hope you enjoy my video story, and let me know what you think!
