Fridays For Future Utah is leading a local event for tomorrow's Global Climate Strike. RadioACTive got a preview and a song from organizers Raquel Juarez, Natalie Roberts and Shake Your Peace's Gabe Dominguez.

  • Sept. 24: Global Climate Strike - Uproot the System, 11:00 a.m. at Washington Square, march to the south steps of the Utah Capitol Building by 12:00 p.m. Event by Fridays For Future Utah: "We cannot allow the world to continue to ignore the social impacts of the climate crisis, mostly hitting already marginalized communities such as BIPOC, LGBTQ+ and ethnic minorities. Collective action has proven the need for the youth to stand united with the multi-sectoral, intergenerational struggle for a better future for all; a future where people and the planet are prioritized over profit."

Reporters Jessica Miller and Paighten Harkins, The Salt Lake Tribune, on their collaboration with FRONTLINE to document the race of people shot by police in Utah, what the data tells us, and where we're headed next on confronting implicit and explicit racism in policing.
