HMM 05 – 02 – 2023

Today, on the Hudson Mohawk Magazine,
First, Earth Day Advocacy Day took place at the State Capitol on April 25. We hear from several participants about the key environmental bills before the legislature.

Then, Willie Terry attended a press conference and rally by American Postal Workers Union, Local 390 in Albany. The workers were protesting a toxic work environment and short staffing, leading to unsafe working conditions in post offices throughout the country.

Later on, Brea Barthel speaks with Danuel Butterworth, Executive Director, about the services offered to Albany newcomers through the Refugee and Immigrant Support Services of Emmaus (RISSE).

After that, Brooklyn-based musician Christopher Tignor will perform on May 5 at The Avalon Lounge in Catskill, with Earthen Sea and Connor Armbruster, and on May 7 at The Studio in Troy. He spoke with Tom Roe of WGXC.

Finally, this week Thom Francis speaks with Bob Sharkey who writes poetry and short fiction. Bob is a long-time board member of the Writers Guild
