Eagle feathers and religious liberty, plus one-on-one with SLC mayoral candidate Luz Escamilla

Tonight's lineup:

A religious liberty petition seeks to allow anyone to use the feathers of federally protected birds, such as eagles, as long as they are “sincere religious believers.” Find out more with Living The Circle of Life’s Braidan Weeks, who said the issue was a hot topic at last month’s National Congress of American Indians.

Tara Benally, field director for the Rural Utah Project, which is collaborating with Google Plus Codes to create addresses for 70% of registered voters on the Navajo Nation. Addresses will not only ensure that voters are registered in the correct location and their votes cannot be contested, but it will allow vital emergency services to reach residents more quickly.

Plus, one-on-one with SLC mayoral candidate Luz Escamilla. Recorded June 6, 2019, at Impact Hub Salt Lake. Visit the Go Vote tab on our website to catch up on all the one-on-one candidate interviews.
