Valley Edition - June 28, 2019 - Advance Peace, Opioid Treatment Deserts, Wheelchair Soccer


On this week’s Valley Edition: Today on our show, stories about identity: how do you be yourself when others assume you’re something else? We talk to a transgender person about what it’s like to work while transitioning. And we hear from athletes who play competitive soccer in wheelchairs. And what’s behind gang violence in Fresno? Can it be curbed with an innovative program?

We also look at identity with our ongoing series on opioids, In Recovery. We tell you the story of a Kern County woman who was addicted to heroin but is now clean, and she’s doing as much as she can to improve access to treatment in an area almost devoid of it.  

Listen to these stories and more on the podcast above.
