Central Standard

Discrimination: Report It, Don't Ignore It

social-media-discrimination.jpg

On this Tuesday's Central Standard, a look at a new campaign to address issues of discrimination in our community. The campaign includes newspaper ads, radio spots, billboards, flyers, posters and also a 12-week informational radio show. (This radio show not included.)

We're joined by Mickey Dean, Assistant Director of the City of Kansas City's Human Relations Department, hear to tell us  about the city's anti-discrimiaton policy, and how complaints are handled.

Plus, in the second half of the show, a look at a study from the University of Missouri-Columbia about the rise in entrepreneurship during these economic times. We speak with Maria Figueroa-Armijos, a doctoral student in the University of Missouri Truman School of Public Affairs.

Plus, stay tuned until the end of the show for a preview of the upcoming UP ALL NIGHT show that our colleagues at KC Currents are cooking up – and how you can get involved.

TELL US:
What are you up to between the hours of 12 a.m. - 5 a.m.? What are you thinking about? Doing? Eating? We want to hear about what goes in in your neighborhood or place of work. If you're up on the evening of Tuesday, September 21st after midnight and until dawn, tweet in, or shoot us an e-mail.
