White, male privilege in the #MeToo era. Plus, League of Women Voters of Utah and VOA-Utah

Tonight’s lineup:

  • Kathy Bray, president and CEO of Volunteers of America, Utah. The human services nonprofit will celebrate the grand reopening of the Center for Women and Children(CWC) with a special ceremony this week.
    • The CWC will offer homeless women struggling with substance abuse an opportunity to detoxify in a safe and supervised residential environment. Located at 697 W. 4170 S., Murray, VOA-Utah operated the center for 15 years before being forced to close it in 2014 due to lack of funding.
    • Women at the CWC are able to keep their children, age ten years or younger, with them as they manage their withdrawal, a proven attribute to sustained recovery. This supportive living environment will motivate women to begin recovery and break the cycle of substance abuse and homelessness, for themselves and their children.
  • Emily Walsh, legislative action director for the League of Women Voters of Utah, reported back on this month’s interim session of the Utah Legislature.
