On this edition of Your Call, we're discussing the rise of COVID-19-related attacks against Asian Americans and find out how communities are responding.

For Asians, Latinos, and other ethnic minorities, the end of life presents unique challenges. Language barriers and cultural traditions can often inhibit access to hospice, pain management, and comfort care.

Living with regular racial discrimination is a reality for many people. It can affect them psychologically, and even lead to depression. Now, a new study out of UC Berkeley found that those effects can also be physical.

A new clinical trial in the National Bureau of Economic Research studied 1,300 black men in Oakland to see if race was a factor in determining whether they seek preventative care services. Owen Garrick, president and CEO of Bridge Clinical Research, co-wrote the study.

On the August 10th edition of Your Call, we’ll discuss sexual harassment.

What role does implicit bias play in policing? On the January 28th edition of Your Call, we’ll continue our series on police, community, race, and justice by discussing how unconscious racial bias affects police and community relations. Even those of us who believe in equality and fairness show significant patterns of bias. How are police departments dealing with this? Can officers be trained to recognize their biases and alter their behavior? What’s the most effective way to combat implicit bias? It’s Your Call with Rose Aguilar, and you.

Earlier this fall San Francisco Muni buses displayed an ad that may have upset you. Or angered you. Or made you feel threatened. The Muni ad was part of an anti-Islam campaign calling itself the American Freedom Defense Initiative, or AFDI. It wasn’t the first time AFDI’s ads ran on Muni buses and it probably won’t be the last.
