Thursday Night Talk, a weekly KHSU radio program, is set to hold an open town hall style forum Jan. 19 in HSU’s Kate Buchanan room. The event will feature local law enforcement members, educational administrators and advocates, and academic professors.
The host of Thursday Night Talk, Lorna Bryant, hopes to start a dialogue about the new presidency any ways in which it may impact locals, and how to deal with those impacts.
Included in the talk will be conversation around potential new laws and regulations under trump, concerns for undocumented citizens, racially motivated crimes, and what the new president should know about our community.
“This talk will be the beginning of the discussion,” Bryant said. “We are giving those frustrated by the election a place to air their concerns and feelings.”
The forum is part of KHSU’s “Race Beat” series; a series that talks about issues of race in the community.
Anyone in the public is welcome to join the forum and be part of the audience. Questions from both the audience and radio listeners will be a part of the show.
Listeners can email questions before the forum to ThursdayNightTalk@khsu.org or call in that night to 707-826-4805 or send a text message to 707-492-5478
