Racine & Me: Homelessness, Case High Musical, Hope for Shelter animals, Miss Latina Racine
It’s a growing problem in Racine: homelessness. Ahead of the freezing cold winter months, Reverend Kevin Stewart is trying to start a conversation about what can be done to help those in need.
Also in this episode, local students are taking a stand, putting on a musical to raise awareness about suicide and other tough issues facing teens, after an alarming number of Racine Unified students took their own lives in the past two years.
And there’s some new hope for shelter animals. The Wisconsin Humane Society tells us about a newly proposed legislation that would help these animals get out of the shelter and into new homes faster.
Plus we meet the current Miss Latina Racine ahead of her giving up her crown to another young woman. Event organizers not only discuss what it takes to be Miss Latina Racine, but what the organization’s mission is in the city and how it is impacting teenage girls in the Racine community.
