The New Normal: Visions of Healing
This special looks at our community one year after the October fires that killed 44 and obliterated neighborhoods in Santa Rosa and the surrounding towns. We visit musicians, poets and visual artists who are trying to represent the calamity in ways that promote resiliency, and talk with members of the Latino community and supporters, who demand that next time, our Spanish speaking and undocumented neighbors aren’t left behind. Filled with music, poetry, art and love, this is our own response to the “new normal,” where climate change threatens our lives and livelihoods. (Fire Footage Courtesy of
