Cure for Cancer? Tribute to Archie Archuleta, Community Forum on the Inland Port, Day 2 at the Utah Legislature with League of Women Voters of Utah, Action Utah, Disability Law Center and SUWA, #Sundance2019 update with Sneaking Into Movies.

Tonight’s lineup:

Dr. John Sweetenham, Physician in Chief and Senior Director of Clinical Affairs at Huntsman Cancer Institute in Salt Lake City. Sweetenham responded to news out of Israel from a company claiming to have found the cure for cancer. Here’s a longer interview with Dr. Sweetenham on the subject:

Tribute to Archie Archuleta, who passed away recently. His last visit to the show was Dec. 18, 2018, which was International Migrants Day to read his original essay, “Fear as an instrument of immigration reform.” As he noted that evening, it wasn’t a new piece:

Rep. Angela Romero, a close family friend, said in a Facebook post earlier today that Archuleta’s family is planning a community celebration for March 2. She wrote: “I have also been asked, ‘how can we support Archie’s family?’ As you know, Archie was committed to social justice. His activism centered around PEACE, JUSTICE and EQUALITY for ALL. In lieu of flowers, the family has asked that people make a donation to Crossroads Urban Center or the Chicano Scholarship Fund in Archie’s name.”

Deeda Seed from the Coalition for Port Reform talked about this Saturday’s Community Forum on the Inland Port, 9:00 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. in the Zion Building at the Utah State Fair Park, 155 N. 1000 W., SLC.
