Colorado Edition: A Time For Change
Today on Colorado Edition: We get a look at the how Colorado is leading the push for police reform, as the nationwide call for meaningful change grows more urgent. We also hear about recent legislation looking to help people of color stake their claim in the blossoming marijuana industry. We learn more about a recently extended program providing food aid to low-income students during the pandemic — and how the agencies distributing funds are trying to reach more eligible students. And, we hear how climate change could finish off a World War II-era bomber discovered at the bottom of Lake Mead.
Today’s show features reporting from Robyn Vincent, KUNC’s reporter with the Mountain West News Bureau; KUNC reporter Stephanie Daniel; and Frani Halperin for H2O Radio. We also speak with Colorado Sun reporter Zach Bright.
