Environmental Justice, Black Lives Matter, BSVRR

Leanne Harter, Story County Outreach Coordinator, started our program with the first Story County Report since COVID-19 began.  Carolyn Raffenspirger gave us a moving account of how environmental injustice injures the poor and people of color far more than the general population.  Mike Murphy provided recorded interviews with some of the hundreds of people at the Boone Black Lives Matter March on Monday night.  Finally, Mike Wendel, director of the James H Andrew Railroad Museum told us about their new exhibit on electric railways as well as their reopening and that of the Boone and Scenic Valley Railroad in accord with CDC guidelines.
