Today on Radioactivity, we look at the state of refugees that have resettled in Florida. Our guest is Patti Grogan, the head of Florida’s Refugee Services program , which helps over 5000 people annually who have arrived in the state to escape war or persecution achieve self-sufficiency. The Tampa Bay Area Refugee Task Force is hosting a cultural festival on Saturday, Sept. 19 at the University of South Florida that celebrates the contributions of immigrants and refugees. The event is free and will run from 11am-2pm.
Then we listen to an excerpt from Bernie Sander’s speech last night at Liberty University, an evangelical Christian university in Lynchburg, Virginia that was founded by Baptist pastor and conservative commentator Jerry Falwell.
