In-Studio: WOLA Execs Bring “Beyond The Wall” Campaign To Santa Fe

WOLAPIC_0.jpg

On Monday’s KSFR Wake-Up Call, host Tom Trowbridge visited with executives from the Washington, D.C.-based non-profit WOLA. WOLA is an advocacy group for human rights in the Americas that has done decades of research and advocacy work on Mexico and Central America, U.S. foreign policy, as well as migration and border politics. WOLA President Matt Clausen and Vice President Geoff Thale are in Santa Fe to address a private audience and drum-up support for the effort.

Tom, a native of Brooklyn, New York, came to New Mexico in the early 1980s from Oregon, where he learned the craft of radio news at KPNW-AM/FM in Eugene while studying for his bachelor’s degree in journalism from the University of Oregon. His radio career included stops in Oregon, Delaware and Texas before he returned to New Mexico for good in 1990. Tom obtained a master’s degree in public administration from UNM and worked for many years at KUNM in Albuquerque as a free-lance reporter and Morning Edition host. His work has been featured on National Public Radio, the Voice of America, Latino USA as well as the CBS and ABC radio networks. Tom, who’s thrilled to be working for KSFR, enjoys spending time with his two kids as well as playing tennis and bicycling.
