Colorado Edition: Hard To Mitigate
Today on Colorado Edition: After a months-long delay, Colorado finally has the local Census population data needed to draw electoral districts. We’ll dive into what the new data means for the redistricting process. We’ll also hear about a recent push to name a Colorado Veterans Affairs clinic after an anti-racist trailblazer. Plus, we hear about a slate of new laws that aim to address issues of discrimination and accessibility for Coloradans with disabilities. And, we explore how methane leaks impact our changing climate and the multiple efforts underway to locate and fix them.
Today’s show features reporting from: KUNC rural and small communities reporter Adam Rayes; KUNC military reporter Michael de Yoanna; and AAAS Mass Media fellow Ashley Piccone. And today’s guests include: Colorado state Rep. David Ortiz.
