#REDforED: Teachers of the Salt Lake Education Association talk about taking students outside of the classroom to learn. Plus, the incredible teaching and learning that is happening in the Salt Lake City School District, despite the difficulties they've highlighted the past few weeks. Tonight's guests included John Arthur and Keenan Burkley, who both teach 6th grade at Meadowlark Elementary.

Debut of The Silenced American, a podcast dedicated to interviewing DACAmented individuals. RadioACTive will be sharing the podcast as new episodes are posted by hosts Amy Dominguez and Fabiola Madrigal. Their first guest is Jennifer Fuentes Langi, a local Salt Lake City immigration attorney.

  • Synopsis: "Jennifer explains the legalities of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, most commonly known as DACA. She helps us understand how DACA came to be, what it is, what it is not, and its legal standing today. This episode gives us the detailed explanation of DACA needed to discuss its implications in future episodes."
