COVID-19 Community Report July 7, 2020 - Rev. Beth Banks

I've interviewed nearly 50 people since I started this show in March. I've had two goals: provide important local and regional public health news, and weave together a narrative about how the pandemic is affecting people across Yolo County.

Ministers are called to provide pastoral care to others and even in the best of times, it's a heavy emotional lift. These are not the best of times, and I want to hear firsthand how one local church is coping. Next week, I'll speak with Rev. Elizabeth "Beth" Banks, the senior minister at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Davis. We'll chat about the decision to close the church campus and remain closed at this time; the joys and challenges of church life on Zoom; the intersection of COVID-19 and social and political unrest, and how her faith views this moment in time. PC: Rev. Banks with Uniting for Racial Justice members, UU Church of Davis.

COVID-19 Community Report Episode 26: Working Towards a Vaccine

My guest on Tuesday, June 30's show is Dr. Koen Van Rompay. I first met Koen many years ago when he attended a meeting of Soroptimist International of Davis to talk about his work with Sahaya International. Over time I learned about his groundbreaking work helping to develop and test the anti-viral drug tenofovir, used in the prevention and treatment of  HIV. He is another community member we are so fortunate to have access to due to proximity to UC Davis. He is a virologist at the California National Primate Research Center at UC Davis with expertise in nonhuman primate models of viral infections, and he'll tell us about his current work collaborating toward a vaccine for coronvirus.

We'll also speak about Sahaya International, the Davis-based non-profit he founded that builds awareness and support of healthcare, education, environmental and socio-economic grassroots programs in developing countries.

Juneteenth Celebrated on KDRT

Preacher Cleveland, host of “Praise Time with Preacher” on KDRT, takes over the “Listening Lyrics” spot this Friday, June 19 at 4 PM with a special show to commemorate Juneteenth, celebrated each June 19 to commemorate the emancipation of enslaved people in the United States. The holiday was first celebrated in Texas, the most remote of all slave states, where on that date in 1865, slaves were declared free under the terms of the 1862 Emancipation Proclamation.

Here in Davis, Juneteenth is typically celebrated at a huge community event sponsored by The Culture Co-op, the Yolo County Library and other community partners, but in the absence of large gatherings, Preacher is stepping up to offer this programming to the community.

The show will be a mix of history, touching on topics from the evolution of Juneteenth to the Tulsa Massacre, weaving in songs of protest and praise, and connecting it all to the current-day Black Lives Matter Movement.
