This Monday night two community advocates will talk about the controversial men's shelter in Highbridge. Beginning at 9:00pm, Ernesto Maldonado, a community leader who heads the Stop the Violence Campaign and the founder and president of the Citizens Activist Network (C.A.N.) and local resident Agnes Johnson will talk about the transition of this facility and its implication to the surrounding neighborhood.
Then on Monday, January 31 two health care experts will talk in detail about health care reform and what it might mean for the Bronx. It will be an excellent way for Bronxites to get information about what is and is not in the bill so they can make their own plans for health care.
Viewers with questions or comments can call in to both shows at 718-960-7150.
