Reactions to White Supremacist, Women’s Day, Emergency Communication

We provided continuing coverage of the aftermath of White supremacist, Nicholas Fuentes, appearing on ISU campus. We spoke with Taylor Blair from Campus Democrats and Alexis Holmes from the Black Student Alliance, two student organizations that mounted resistance to the visit. We also heard a discussion between Alexis Holmes and Anthony LaBruna, a member of the Campus Republicans, a group rumored to have invited the speaker, which LaBruna denied. Preston Burris, a KHOI reporter who was covering what happened and tweeted about it, spoke about how Fuentes’ supporters attacked him on social media.

International Women’s Day was celebrated at the Ames Library and we brought you voices from that event. We heard excerpts from the panel discussion and comments from several audience members.

The show wrapped up with Keith Morgan, from Story County Emergency Management. We discussed the role of broadcast operations during emergencies and severe weather awareness week at the end of March.
