Major Neill Franklin, executive director of Law Enforcement Against Prohibition, will discuss the war on drugs. A reaction panel of university and community experts will follow the lecture. The War on Drugs was initiated in the 1970s in response to a perceived national problem of increased drug usage, particularly among the young. Since then, drug enforcement efforts have cost billions of dollars in federal, state and local funds. In addition, the rapid increase in the number of individuals convicted for drug offenses and the length of their incarceration is primarily responsible for the fact that the United States has one of the highest per capita incarceration rates of all the nations of the world. This event is free and open to the public. Sponsors are the UNI Public Policy Program, UNI Public Policy Club, Northern Iowa Student Government and the Citizens for Undoing Racism Task Force on the War on Drugs.
This panel will address the myriad of immigrant women's experiences in Iowa's workforce, including a variety of topics such as obstacles and successes in gaining employment, negotiating legal status, job specifics, family life and everyday workforce interactions. Audiences will learn from and contribute to the panelists' collective knowledge via conversation and discussion.
The Department of Communication Studies will host the 34th annual Iowa High School Speech Association. At least 400 students from nearly 200 schools will showcase their talents. Events include original oratory, prose, after dinner speaking, radio news, acting, and storytelling.
