Youth Climate Strike, Free Speech/Hate Speech at ISU, the Human Paradigm of Immigration

Dennis Hart gives a summary of local news from the pages of the Ames Tribune.

Gabby Heidrich, president of the ISU student organization Climate Reality chapter, explains the upcoming local event of the US Youth Climate Strike, to occur on March 15th at 11am with speakers at the Free Speech Zone on campus, in front of the ISU library. This event is part of an international movement led by youth. Gabby also describes the mission of her chapter, for establishing a plan for switching to renewable energy with Iowa State University.

Nick Fuentes, Youtube and podcast personality who is a self-described nationalist anti-immigration advocate, came to Iowa State University on Wednesday night to give a speech to a conservative group on campus, but the evening became one of discussion for many ISU students about the role of free speech and inclusive community at Iowa State. KHOI reporter Tre Moore reports and brings you sounds from that night.

After hearing some of students' diverse thoughts and issues on this show, we bring a recording of an interview with Reverend Dr. David Vasquez-Levy, President of the Pacific School of Religion in Berkeley, CA. He offers an analysis of how the students' experience is similar to immigrants' experience and these offer valuable life skills for all of us.
