Working Families, Youth Radio, Emergency Response

The Working Families Summit took place in Ames on Saturday, and on Local Talk we listened to the keynote speaker, Larry Cohen. Mr. Cohen is the Chair of Our Revolution, the successor organization to Bernie 2016. He spoke about the need for a progressive agenda including health care, child care, jobs, and low-debt college access, as well as the role of Iowa in growing support for these goals.

Ames Middle School students, Mary Mundell, Malik Davis, Vijay Williams, and Karla Torres, were interviewed by host, Gale Seiler, about Youth Participatory Action Research they were involved in this past year. These students will also co-host Rebel Music Radio on KHOI on Thursday from 8:00 - 10:00 PM.

Keith Morgan, from the Story County Emergency Management, came in for his monthly segment. He and his guests, Betty Boccella and Steve Frykholm, described the work of the Coalition for Disaster Recovery and a recent simulation they did to provide shelter in an emergency.
