Colorado Edition: Serving Victims And Survivors


Today on Colorado Edition: We talk about the national spike in reported incidents of domestic violence during the pandemic. Plus, we get an update on unemployment and job opportunities in Colorado. We also hear why efforts to repeal the death penalty in Wyoming have become more bipartisan despite lawmakers defeating the most recent repeal proposal. And, we learn about a new app called “Write On” that helps you collaborate on stories with loved ones and strangers.

Today’s guests include: Ruth Glenn, chief executive officer of the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence; Tamara Chaung, technology, business and economy reporter for the Colorado Sun; and Niroj Bhattarai and Bikul Koirala, creators of the Write On app. Today’s show features reporting from Maggie Mullen, a reporter for the Mountain West News Bureau.
