COVID-19 Community Report Episode 22: Updates from DJUSD with Dr. Cindy Pickett and Immigrant Advocacy with Anoosh Jorjorian - June 2, 2020

On Episode 22, I'm joined by Dr. Cindy Pickett and Anoosh Jorjorian.

For the past three years, Dr. Cindy Pickett has served as the Associate Vice Provost for Faculty Equity and Inclusion at UC Davis, and has also been a faculty member in the Department of Psychology.  She also serves as the president of the Davis Joint Unified School District Board of Trustees.  She recently accepted an appointment as inaugural Associate Provost for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion at DePaul University in Chicago, a role she starts on July 1. We'll talk about how the school district and the families, faculty, and administration within it have weathered the past few months.

Also, the Yolo Interfaith Immigration Network is a group of people serving and advocating for immigrants in Yolo County.  Back in April, I interviewed then-YIIN President David Lichtenhan about their ApoYolo Project. Project Coordinator Anoosh Jorjorian joins me to talk about the project's milestones and current needs.

The shows airs live at noon Tuesdays on KDRT 95.7 FM in Davis, and anywhere.
