This week, we talk about two initiatives on the November ballot. First, we talk about I 1639, which is called the “Safe Schools, Safe Communities” measure aimed at reducing gun violence, and we’re joined by Renee Hopkins, CEO of the Alliance for Gun Responsibility, and by Stephen Paolini. He is the the campaign manager for Yes on 1639. Then we speak with Ahmed Gaya, field director for Yes on 1639, which, if it passes, will be the first voter initiative in the nation to enact a carbon fee on polluters in the state. And we also talk with two leaders of Indivisible Wenatchee about their protest on Monday against Wenatchee World publisher Jeff Ackerman and his recent op-ed about the allegations by Dr. Christine Blasey Ford that seemed to trivialize sexual assault.
