This week on Moving Forward, the Young Voices radio show, we hear from contributors Jorge Velasco, Grace Bydalek, Corey Walker and Michael Holmes.

Mainstream media is suffering from a severe deficit of trust among the viewing public. Jorge Velasco relates how CNN+ is another sign of a crumbling legacy media.

With so many aspects of our culture disappearing down the memory hole, we can still learn from the memorials that remain. For instance, Grace Bydalek explains how cemeteries remind us of the importance of religion.

Why does the U.S. have such a large prison population compared to other, less free, countries? It’s because many people can’t afford to post bail. Corey Walker says it’s time to eliminate cash bail to stop punishing the poor.

Immigration policy is a source of frustration for people on all sides of the political spectrum. Michael Holmes reminds us that there are reasons for hope in immigration policy.
