MetroFocus airs February 13 at 7:30 p.m. on WLIW, February 14 at 8:30 p.m. on THIRTEEN, and January 19 at 10:30 p.m. on NJTV.

 

This week on MetroFocus: Rick Karr reports on one Brooklyn group’s strategy to reduce gun violence and Rafael Pi Roman interviews Senator Eric Adams on NY’s tough new gun control laws. From upstate, Marie Cusick looks at how those laws are impacting the Remington Arms Company. Next, our new “Listening in” segment features a clip from a recent panel on climate change and cities. Pi Roman talks with AIDS activist, Peter Staley, on how lessons learned by ACT UP apply to today’s social movements. From The New York Times’ Emma Cott, we hear about students’ struggles in Rockaway Park following Hurricane Sandy. And an amazing solution to feeding the hungry called “Canstruction,” a competition to build structures entirely of cans of food.
