Kansas Congresswoman Sharice Davids has backed legislation aimed at lowering health care costs for her constituents back home and encouraging states like Kansas and Missouri to expand Medicaid.

Segment 1, beginning at 4:33: Rep. Davids says her constituents' top concerns are, "their health and safety, and their economic security."

Amid what the congresswoman calls a devastating pandemic, Rep. Davids has pushed to include in an upcoming health care package more incentives for states that expand Medicaid, and says passing the Justice in Policing Act should be a national priority.

Segment 2, beginning at 34:10: A Kansas City screenwriter offers advice on what to watch while sheltering in place .

Nathan Louis Jackson has some free time on his hands since the pandemic halted production on his latest collaboration, "Freedom Rider." He shares his thoughts on how COVID-19 might affect the themes we see on stage or on screen in the coming years, and offers streaming recommendations for those stuck home.

When I host Up To Date each morning at 9 a.m., my aim is to engage the community in conversations about the Kansas City area’s challenges, hopes and opportunities. I try to ask the questions that listeners want answered about the day’s most pressing issues and provide a place for residents to engage directly with newsmakers. My email is steve@kcur.org.
The Kansas City region has long been a place where different ways of life collide. I tell the stories of people living and working where race, culture and ethnicity intersect. I examine racial equity and disparity, highlight the area's ethnic groups and communities of color, and invite all of Kansas City to explore meaningful ways to bond with and embrace cultures different from their own.
