North Bay Fire: A Community Unites
This program brings us stories from the inferno, from those families fleeing the fire with their precious pets, to updates on the ongoing repopulation. We talk with Karissa Kruse, president of Sonoma County Winegrowers about the fire's effect on her industry, including the hundreds of workers whose homes were damaged or destroyed, and with Ana Lugo, president of the North Bay Organizing Project. She has helped start a fund that’s aiding undocumented immigrants who can't apply for aid to FEMA. Finally, we hear a special performance of "Santa Rosa," country star Pete Stringfellow's anthem about the strength and beauty of his hometown.
