Has Your Past Determined Your Present?

Has your past determined your present? On the next Your Call, we'll have a conversation about how the decisions of our ancestors shaped who we are or hope to be. If you've made the decision to connect with your family history, what have you learned that changed the way you see yourself? Join us live at 11 or send us an email at feedback@yourcallradio.org. With many family gatherings for the holiday weekend, how can you start the intergenerational conversations that allow you to understand where you come from? It's Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you.
