This week, we look at Ethnic Studies: what gains have been made in San Francisco and what challenges are faced in Arizona? We hear voices from an Ethnic Studies teach in just before the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco heard arguments about the school district in Tucson that was accused by state officials of violating their Ethnic Studies ban.

We also learn what it means to be a reconciling church, or a church that welcomes all sexual orientations and gender identities. We talk with Lauren Quock with the Network on Religion and Justice about the upcoming Reconciling Sunday at Wesley United Methodist Church in San Jose.
