New articles on immigration, Superfund, and pot-sniffing doggies

I wanted to highlight a few articles I've written since early this year, including a couple of new ones on the nation's broken immigration system. In March, I wrote about citizens in the Bay Area training to become legal observers when ICE officers are conducting enforcement activities. And in June, I wrote about the San Francisco Public Defender's Office launching its new immigrant legal defense team, which also describes in some detail the dire straits immigration detainees are in. 

I recently had my first article published in KQED's science section of its website, about a large Superfund site in the heart of Silicon Valley, and the threat of the Trump administration on environmental cleanup going forward. And I had another in the San Francisco Chronicle about the future for pot-sniffing police dogs in California, now that marijuana has been legalized. That one was pretty fun to write!

Rape Kits, Heavy Metal and Baroness Golden Tickets

I've written several new articles that I'm very proud of, including an investigative feature revealing that San Francisco still has untested rape kits from up to 30 years ago -- despite saying its backlog is cleared. I also published my first piece with Bitch, about heavy metal's racism and sexism problem, and a fun piece about Baroness' upcoming show in San Francisco (and the band's plan to hide a pair of free tickets somewhere in the city the day of the show).
