Live KHSU Town Hall Forum on the Trump Presidency - Humboldt State Now

Live KHSU Town Hall Forum on the Trump Presidency

KHSU’s weekly talk show, Thursday Night Talk, will host a live, town hall-style event on the eve of the presidential inauguration. The forum will be in front of a live audience at Humboldt State University’s Kate Buchanan Room on January 19 and will be broadcast and streamed live on KHSU from 7 to 9:00 p.m.

The show, “The Trump Presidency: Our Country, Our California, Our Community, Our Campuses,” will examine how the Donald Trump presidency may affect individuals and the local community.

Forum guests will be representatives from Humboldt State University, local law enforcement, civil rights organizations, Humboldt County Office of Education, and others.

Topics will include, but are not limited to:

• What, if any, state laws may be in jeopardy
• Concerns for undocumented citizens in our community and local school campuses
• Any incidents of racially motivated crimes or offenses in the community or decrease in enrollment since the election
• Conversations about civics and civility with children—at home and in the classroom
• What you want the new President to know about you or your community as he takes office

The public is welcome to be part of the audience. Doors will open at 5:30 p.m., and attendees are requested to be seated by 6:30 p.m. Audience questions and comments will be part of the show from both the forum audience and radio listeners. Listeners can email questions in advance to ThursdayNightTalk@khsu.org, call in that night to 707-826-4805 or send a text message to 707-492-5478.

The forum is part of KHSU’s “Race Beat” series, a recurring feature about issues of race in our community, hosted by Lorna Bryant on Thursday Night Talk and other KHSU programs.
