From WSLR 96.5 LPFM, this is the Critical Times. This week, Amendment 4 has officially gone into effect. We spoke to President of the local chapter of the National Florida Rights Restoration Coalition, Demetrius Jifunza, on what this means for the 1.5 million individuals in the state that are now eligible to vote. The local Gulf Coast chapter of the UN Women-UNSC chapter are hosting a community conversation on the #MeToo movement in 2019. Red tide left a mark on Sarasota’s tourism industry, we get the word on what exactly happened. The Multicultural Health Institute received a grant towards their MLK Week of Action, we need a speak preview on what to expect. As always, we are joined by Dennis Maley, Senior Editor and Writer of the Bradenton Times, with his Manatee News Update. All of this and more, in the next installment of the Critical Times!
