Facing South Florida: Transgender Issues

In early December, the Miami-Dade County Commission is set to vote on whether to include transgender protection in the Human Rights Ordinance. That ordinance currently makes it illegal to discriminate against an individual based on age, gender, race and sexual orientation. Jim discusses this with former Miami-Dade commissioner Katy Sorenson, who is the original sponsor of the ordinance, and Anthony Verdugo, who is the executive director of the Christian Family Coalition. First we air an expanded version of Jim’s sit-down interview with Congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, her husband Dexter Lehtinen, and their transgender son Rodrigo.

Facing South Florida: Last Chance Boot Camp

This special edition of Facing South Florida, “Last Chance Boot Camp” is the culmination of a 4-month CBS4 News investigation that follows one class of boot camp cadets – a collection of carjackers, burglars and armed robbers being given one last chance to turn their lives around. We take you inside the last remaining boot camp in Florida, and this facility may be short-lived as well. The Miami-Dade County Commission is poised to decide whether to shut it down. Not because it doesn’t work, but simply to save money.
