ROCKVILLE, Md., January 13, 2017—Montgomery County Councilmember Craig Rice, who chairs the Council’s Education Committee, will be the featured guest at 2:30 p.m. TODAY, Friday, Jan. 13, on En Sintonía con el Concejo del Condado de Montgomery (Tuned In with the Montgomery County Council), a weekly show on Radio America (WACA 1540 AM).  The chief topic will be human trafficking and its impact on the Latino community. There also will be a segment on foster care programs in Montgomery County.

 

Rubí Corado, director of Casa Rubí, also will be joining the segment of the show dedicated to looking at the impact of human trafficking on the national and local levels. Councilmember Rice has been a strong advocate for finding programs that could reduce human trafficking in the Washington area. He has stressed that local governments could not solve the problem on their own and that only a region-wide collaborative effort could be effective.

 

Today’s show also will focus on foster care. It will look at the need for more foster families and the program will offer suggestions for those who are considering becoming foster parents. The show will include representatives from the National Center of Children and Families (the Green Tree Adolescent Program). Another guest will be Soledad Calvo from the Montgomery County Department of Health and Human Services.

 

The Montgomery County Council and Radio America have entered into a partnership that provides the Latino community with key information on issues and programs. The partnership also provides a forum for residents to express views and ask questions. The partnership includes the weekly one- hour show each Friday on the Washington Region’s most popular Spanish language station. Lilian Mass is the show’s host.

 

Each week, the show features guests talking about important issues before the Council and occasionally the show provides information about programs offered by the County to help residents.

 

In addition to the radio broadcast, the show can be heard via the Internet at: http://tunein.com/radio/Radio-America-1540-s6029/ .

 

Video links with a summary of the show are available each week at the County Council's newly-redesigned, mobile friendly web site at: www.montgomerycountymd.gov/council .
