Welcome to Bending the Arc. Our first conversation with Shasta Equal Justice Coalition (SEJC) co-chair Ted Couch of Reinvest Redding was published on Scratched Up Radio here on KKRN. Our regular show airs the second Tuesday of the month, but this month we hosted an additional special conversation with the co-Presidents of the League of Women Voters (LWV), Joann Roskosi and Missy McArthur. We discuss the role of the League, local LWV positions on criminal legal system issues, what it means to be nonpartisan, voter education, and more. You can learn more about the LWV of the Redding area by going to https://my.lwv.org/california/redding-area.
