Dr. Dara Richardson-Heron, CEO of the YWCA-USA, and Jennifer Shoub, CEO of the YWCA Baton Rouge, both join us in studio for the first segment of today's show. From the abolition of slavery to equal and fare minimum wages, the YWCA has worked 156 years to end racism and empower women, and today they discuss their efforts to end domestic violence in Louisiana communities and the country.
Mark Ballard, the Editor of the Capitol News Bureau for The Advocate, is with us to discuss the possible candidate runoffs we could see after November 4th, and what the housing situation is with most of the candidates running for office. With the big fuss being made over U.S. Sen. Mary Landrieu's official residency status, Mark addressed the broader issue and wrote an article discussing the houses of all of the major candidates.
Also, Southern University Law Center Vice Chancellor John Pierre and National Bar Association President Pamela Meanes are with us for the last portion of today's show to discuss the upcoming Wiley A. Branton Symposium at the Southern University Law Center on October 30th & 31st. The event marks the 25th Anniversary of the National Bar Association's Symposium, and the main topic will be focusing on education as the new civil right. For more info, visit sulc.edu.
