    While local violent crime rates in other areas -- like burglary, robbery and aggravated assault -- have declined in recent years, our rate of rape in Boulder County has not. Joining us to discuss sexual violence in our community are Katharina Booth, Chief Trial Deputy and head of the Boulder County District Attorney's sexual assault and domestic violence unit; Lora Blakeslee Atkinson, executive director of Moving to End Sexual Assault; and Dr. Janine D'Anniballe of Mental Health Partners, who specializes in sexual trauma. Together, we discuss misconceptions about rape, the magnitude of our local struggle with sexual violence, and what we can do to make our community safer.

    If passed by voters, Amendment 66 will generate about $950 million for schools across the state, and direct funds toward key areas like early childhood education.

    Since the devastating flooding began in Boulder County on September 12th local, state, and national relief efforts have been underway. Join us as we hear from Garry Sanfacon, Flood Relief Manager for Boulder County; Julie Van Domelen, Mayor of Lyons; Doug Yeiser, President and CEO of Foothills United Way; and Eric Hozempa, Executive Director of the Longmont Community Foundation. These guests highlight many of the programs underway in Boulder County, how you can get involved as a donor or volunteer, and what we can expect in terms of ongoing flood relief for the months to come.

  • 08.26.13

    Latinos have been part of Boulder County for more than 150 years. Yet, little of their presence here has been recorded in the official archives and record books. The Boulder County Latino History Project aims to change that, by documenting and bringing into the light the rich and vibrant past of our Latino community. Joining us to discuss the project are CU History Professor Emerita Marjorie McIntosh, Carmen Ramirez of the Latino Task Force, and project interns (and local students) Ana Gonzalez-Dorta and Kelly Sarceno.
