Live United Film Series wrapup

KLRU and the United Way Capital Area partnered for three film screenings and discussions earlier this year. The partnership allowed KLRU and the United Way to use PBS programs to spark an engaging dialogue about local issues and provide ways for people to get involved immediately in our community.

Special thanks to all the moderators, panelists and audience members who made each screening a thoughtful and informative group discussion.

For the first Live United Film Series, KLRU and the United Way focused on education, financial stability, and health issues in the Hispanic community. Below are highlights from all three events.
