Colorado Edition: Coping In The Aftermath
On today’s episode of Colorado Edition, we hear from residents in the Boulder community, who are mourning the deaths of 10 people who died in Monday’s mass shooting at a Boulder King Soopers. We speak with a woman who lost her daughter in the 2012 Aurora theater shooting, about how she is helping to support the survivors of Monday’s deadly attack. We’ll also learn about the history of anti-Asian discrimination in the West and look at the ways it continues today. Lastly, we’ll get a look at Arizona’s effort to set its own water quality standards, following the Trump administrations rollback on part of the Clean Water Act last summer.
Today’s guests include Sandy Phillips, co-founder of Survivors Empowered; and William Wei, history professor at the CU Boulder and former state historian. Today’s episode featured reporting from KUNC’s Leigh Paterson; KUNC's Matt Bloom; KUNC's Adam Rayes; and Arizona Public Media's Ariana Brocious.
