program date: 
Tue, 10/06/2009

Youth are safe in schools, right? We'd like to think so. The truth is safety in school depends on many factors. Often, LGBTQ youth face verbal harrassment, sometimes daily.

Please read their research report to understand what's really going on inside of our schools.

Tonight we speak with Zena, who works with the Oregon Safe Schools and Communities Coalition.

In the meantime, Chief Rosie Sizer's finding on the death of James Chasse - and her failure to punish the offending officers - suggests police accountability remains little more than a joke in our city.

Where's the city auditor's Independent Police Review division in all this?
