Community Co-Host Sue Robbins says goodbye to the #EverydayPeople edition of RadioACTive by doing what she's always promised to do behind the mic -- lift up voices. Tonight included SLCC journalism students gearing up to tell the overlooked stories of our community. Plus, Amplify Utah's Marcie Young Cancio.
Tonight's lineup with Community Co-Host Sue Robbins and Lara Jones:
Marcie Young Cancio, Assistant Professor of Journalism and Digital Media at Salt Lake Community College, as well as founder and executive director of Amplify Utah. The media literacy non-profit recently launched its website —amplifyutah.org — which "supports and facilitates engaged and dynamic journalistic storytelling to celebrate diverse points of view."
Sue's last #EverydayPeople panel discussion featured Salt Lake Community College journalism students, their own stories and the stories they seek to tell in the coming months:
Sue closed the show with a heartfelt goodbye that left us all in tears. She's stepping away as a host to focus her energies on direct advocacy, especially at the policy and legislative level, but promises to return with news by and about the #EverydayPeople of the LGBTQ+ community.
