The Current State of Race

Hello and welcome back to A Community of Voices.

On this week’s show, we are taking a closer look into Race in the United States.  We will be joined by Mr. Hilary O. Shelton, Director of the Washington Bureau of the National Association of the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) and the Senior Vice-President for Advocacy.

Frank discussions about race is often a taboo subject.  Often times, people do not want to engage each other, engage their communities, or question their own values and beliefs system.  However, by having these conversations, we are able to break down barriers and work towards creating a more just world.

Join A Community of Voices as we discuss the persistence of racism in the United States, how the government is addressing racial issues, and what the future holds for race relations.

Until next time radio-land,

Homelessness in the United States

Hello and welcome back to A Community of Voices.


On this week’s show, we will be joined by Mr. Neil Donovan, the executive director of the National Coalition for the Homeless, to discuss homelessness in the United States.

When you are driving your car, or walking down the street, how many of you stop to offer a kind word or support for an unhoused individual?  While some of you already may, by increasing awareness and analyzing the root causes and symptoms of homelessness, more of you will!

It is unthinkable that we can live in an industrialized society where people’s basic needs–shelter, food, and clothing–are still not being met.

So listen in on the conversation, and take a stand to combat homelessness!

Until next time radio-land,
