This month on the Democracy Forum program (Friday, February 21, 4-5 p.m.), our topic will be Maine’s first presidential primary in two decades. How is the presidential primary going to work, how will delegates to national conventions be apportioned and selected, what role will municipal caucuses continue to play, what will be the differences among the parties? We will take listeners’ questions by email, firstname.lastname@example.org, and respond during the second half of the show. Democracy Forum is produced by the League of Women Voters-Downeast, in cooperation with WERU.
WERU Community Radio broadcast a Climate Emergency RadioActive Special, this past Thursday, January 30, 4-5 p.m. The program featured local students who are working tirelessly to advocate for effective climate action. Take this opportunity to hear what they have to say about this enormously critical issue!
