ISU Race Forum, an Immigrant's Story, Safety Tips

Co-host Gale Seiler brings us audio from last Wednesday's ISU Discussion on Race, Diversity and Inclusion , a forum organized by a newly formed student group, Students against Bigotry. At the forum, students presented their experience of racism on campus, including the incident at the Cy-Hawk tailgate, to President Leath and other administrators. Then, we hear the story of a 19-year-old Mexican who immigrated to the U.S. six months ago when his family's finances collapsed. He now lives in central Iowa attending high school, working two jobs, sending money home and saving for college. Finally, Keith Morgan of Story County Emergency Management Agency gives us safety tips for the coming season.
