Rising journalists once again took over RadioACTive for Voices Amplified, a show done in collaboration between Salt Lake Community College, Amplify Utah and KRCL 90.9 FM.
This episode focused on the environment, particularly as it relates to the Great Salt Lake.
For the first segment, host McCaulee Blackburn and Darren Parry, former chair of the Northwestern Band of the Shoshone Nation, discussed Bear River development and the social paradigm shift needed to help the dwindling lake.
Blackburn then shifted to air quality activism. Linda Jim, president of Salt Lake City Air Protectors, Air Protector volunteer Stacey Hubacher, and Cherise Udell from Utah Moms for Clean Air joined the conversation.
Lastly, Carl Moore, founder of nonprofit PANDOS, sat down with Blackburn to discuss the intersection of settler-colonialism and the climate crisis. They also covered “land back,” a movement that aims to return indigenous stewardship.
