10 Years After Housing Crash, Families Finally Making It on 'Dream Street'

Tue, 25 Apr 2017 08:50:00 PDT

When the U.S. housing market collapsed about 10 years ago, the carnage was especially severe in Southern California's Inland Empire. Back then home building was booming, fueled in part by risky home loans. You know what happened next; foreclosures, thousands of them. Every street could tell a story. Today we visit one, near San Bernardino to kick off a series examining how the crisis is still affecting people and communities today.

Tue, 25 Apr 2017 08:50:00 PDT

If you've ever been stuck behind a big truck on a single-lane highway, you know that conventional diesel engines stink. But that exhaust is also health hazard. That's why California has strict rules on diesel engines. But a group of truckers and construction companies wants to loosen the rules. They're suing -- and any challenge to California rules has a ripple effect on other states.

Decades Later, Industry and Regulators Fail to Clean Up Former Rocket Test Site

Fri, 21 Apr 2017 08:50:00 PDT

Decades ago, the government and private industry pioneered atomic energy and tested the rockets that got us to the moon at a sprawling complex in the Simi Hills west of Los Angeles. The lab closed down 20 years ago, but the land retains the toxic residue from nearly a million gallons of carcinogenic solvent and a partial nuclear meltdown.

American Suburb, DACA Movement, Trumpmares

Fri, 14 Apr 2017 23:00:00 PDT

African American residents priced out of cities like Richmond and Oakland often commute back on Sunday mornings to attend their old churches. But flip that on its head for a second -- what does that mean for the places theyve moved into? Plus, it can be a big risk for undocumented immigrants to admit they dont have papers, especially now, when President Trump is targeting immigrants and vowing to deport them in record numbers. And yet, in the past decade, more and more young people who were brought to the U.S. as children have been doing that. And, if you Google the words Donald Trump and nightmare you get over 18 million results. Of course, there are those who believe Trump is the answer to Americas problems. But there are others who feel quite the opposite, and some of them are carrying those negative thoughts and fears with them deep into slumberland. Reporter Peter Gilstrap brings us the story of a Los Angeles therapist treating patients dealing with what she calls Trumpmares.

American Suburb: Sunday Exodus

Fri, 14 Apr 2017 16:30:00 PDT

Most of us commute to work every day, but some folks are doing a Sunday morning commute -- to go to church. It's a journey African-American residents priced out of cities -- and into suburbs -- often make to worship in the places where they used to live. We've been following some of those people who've moved out to the suburb of Antioch, a Bay Area community which has seen its black population triple in the past 20 years. Today in an excerpt from the KQED series "American Suburb," Sandhya Dirks reports on why African-American residents are trying to put a stop to that Sunday exodus, and grow churches right in their newly adopted community.

It's a scary time for undocumented immigrants to admit they don't have papers, especially now, when President Trump is vowing to deport immigrants in record numbers. And yet, across California, people are speaking out about their immigration status at very public rallies and protests. They call it "coming out of the shadows." And it's a lot like "coming out of the closet." In fact, as Zaidee Stavely tells us, the youth-led immigrant rights movement has deep connection with the movement for LGBT rights.
