Guest 1. Kimberley Kompel describes what moved her to march and what she experienced besides a sea of Pink Pussy Hats in the San Francisco part of the national Million Women March on January 21, 2017, the day after the Inaguration of Donald Trump as President of the USA.
Guest 2. Alicia Ramon is the Chair of the new Sonoma County Independent Office of Law Enforcement Review and Outreach (IOLERO), Alicia is an attorney specializing in tenant rights, civil rights and personal injury claims, Alicia also currently represents clients suing the Sonoma County Sheriff’s Office, Santa Rosa Police Department, and Sebastopol Police Department concerning the seizure of vehicles. She was also active in seeking reconciliation for the killing of 12-year old Andy Lopez for carrying a toy rifle that appeared threatening to a Sheriff Deputy. Alicia describes her path to being Chair of IOLERO and how IOLERO, as stated on its website, provides all members of the public with independent and effective review of complaints against the Sonoma County Sheriff’s Office, making policy recommendations to improve the responsiveness of the Sheriff’s Office to the community, and maintaining continual engagement with members of the public in Sonoma County. Alicia reminds us that Sonoma County is not a “sanctuary county” and that the Sheriff’s Office will most likely cooperate with the Federal ICE regarding undocumented residents. IOLERO signed on to the petition It Won’t Happen Here – Sonoma County Resistance to the Trump Agenda, which our guest Susan Lamont on the show of 1/9/17 talked about.
Alicia Ramon is also a Board Member of Bilingual Broadcasting Foundation, Inc. (BBFI), the non-profit foundation which holds the licenses for Radio KBBF.
