KUER and United Way of Salt Lake have partnered for a three-part speaker series, featuring national reporters and local community members to examine and understand the complex issues that divide us as a country and as a community--racism, bigotry, poverty, and more. These deep-dive community conversations are dedicated to creating better understanding and identifying the many ways each of us, as individuals and from whatever roles we hold in our professional and personal lives, can stand up every day for the values of respect, equality, dignity, and inclusion.
Join us on Wednesday, November 1st, where we will be featuring Claudio Sanchez, NPR Education Correspondent. Sanchez reports regularly on NPR's award-winning newsmagazines Morning Edition, All Things Considered, and Weekend Edition. Claudio will be interviewed by a KUER reporter, and then will participate in a local panel discussion where community thought leaders will explore education and equality in the Latino community, as well as the complex, and often difficult to understand immigration system.
