End the R-Word & ROC Launches New Initiatives in S. Sudan
On this edition of Need to Know Rochester – learn about a local campaign joining a national movement to put an end to a word some say is dehumanizing and offensive. Also on the show – we examine the ongoing conflict in South Sudan and new initiatives by local non-profits to help bring change and stability to the nation. It’s all part of the final installment of WXXI’s Schools for South Sudan series. And a look back at the most critical issues in Rochester during the civil rights movement. We’ll hear from leaders and educators in the community about whether those issues have been resolved.
