Cole Tunningley and Sami Luke

Community Consciousness

This week on The Undercurrent, we bring you stories centered around our community here in Lansing. The theme is community consciousness, raising awareness of local struggles and triumphs.

First, Sami Luke brings you a story on the opioid epidemic, framed around her visit to an ACLU panel on the issue that took place in Lansing on Tuesday, June 6th. The panel discusses both possible causes and possible solutions for the crisis.

To close out the episode, Cole Tunningley presents his story on the controversy surrounding Ormond Park. Residents and City Council candidates talk about the importance of public parks and the lack of government transparency in Lansing.

Thank you for listening.
