Indiana’s Immigrants And COVID-19

Jul 15, 2020

Indiana’s immigrants are often on the front lines of the pandemic working essential jobs, sometimes without sufficient protective equipment. And often those are the lucky ones. Those who have lost their jobs either can’t receive public benefits because of their status, or they aren’t comfortable doing so for fear of being labeled a public charge.

How Will Higher Ed Institutions Adjust?

Jul 14, 2020

A traditional college campus with tight dorm rooms, crowded lecture halls, and bustling bars at night isn’t the most compatible setting for social distancing guidelines. But for many students returning to campus this fall, life will look different. And leaders across Indiana say they're working to protect the quality of the education available to them.

Does Indiana Have A Weak Public Defender System?

Jul 13, 2020

A new report shows that public defenders in Indiana are underpaid, and that there's a pay disparity between public defenders and prosecutors in counties across the state. Advocates who want to address the issue say a weak public defender system has wide-ranging consequences, especially for low-income Hoosiers, and that it contributes to over-incarceration.

The Friday Pitch-In

Jul 10, 2020

This week a federal judge struck down Indiana’s 2018 abortion law, saying it was "too vague." The Archdiocese of Indianapolis got push-back for its policy prohibiting transgender students. And Indiana swapped out its state-run PPE marketplace with a directory to connect small businesses with the gear they need. Today we get updates on these stories and more.

How Do We Remember Our Ugly Past?

Jul 9, 2020

25 years ago, a building contractor in Noblesville found an old trunk in a barn. When he opened it he found signatures. It was a membership list for the Ku Klux Klan during a period in the 1920's, all signatures of men who had lived in Hamilton County. But it was decided the documents would be concealed from the public. Now, for the first time, the documents are available.

Paddling in Indiana

Jul 7, 2020

Indiana has countless rivers, streams, and creeks waiting to be explored. To help, the Department of Natural Resources has released an interactive paddling map that shows public access locations, water levels, and hazards like low-head dams.

The Amani Connection

Jul 6, 2020

In 2003, a pastor from Evansville and a grad student from Africa had a chance meeting that led to the creation of a learning center in Kenya, impacting thousands. We talk with the two people who had that meeting 17 years ago, and find out what it took to make the Amani Learning Center happen.

The History and Impact Of the ADA

Jul 2, 2020

The Americans with Disabilities Act, designed to prohibit discrimination against people with disabilities, is turning 30 years old. The civil rights law has impacted millions, but getting it passed wasnít easy. 

Birding Beyond the Back Yard

Jul 1, 2020

Watching bird feeders has become a popular activity during the Covid-19 pandemic. But if you’re bored with the usual backyard visitors, the house finches, mourning doves, and robins, there’s a lot more of the birding world to explore.

Indiana is home to a rich diversity of bird habitats and migration paths. Today we talk to a panel of birding experts about where to go, what to bring, and how to do it.

Can We Prevent A Housing Crisis?

Jul 1, 2020

A statewide moratorium on evictions has been extended through July due to the pandemic. For some, that’s still not enough time to catch up on past payments. And with expanded federal unemployment benefits set to expire at the same time, some say we're headed for a so-called “eviction cliff.”

Today we find out what assistance is available to renters and homeowners right now, and whether it will be enough.

Produced by Maggie Gelon.

Guests:

The U.S. Supreme Court recently voted to uphold DACA, the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program. It’s a victory for immigration advocates and those pushing for expanded protections and paths to citizenship, but many say the fight is far from over. 

We talk to a panel of experts and advocates about the decision. How will the DACA decision impact people in Indiana, and what might ongoing efforts around immigration look like?
