Hello, everyone! Today I bring you another episode of the #MinorityPopulationPodcast. On this episode, I spoke with Monica Stone, deputy director of the Iowa Department of Human Rights. The department is a state government agency that works to ensure basic rights, freedoms and opportunities for all by empowering underrepresented Iowans and eliminating economic, social and cultural barriers.
I’d like to thank Monica for taking time out of her busy schedule to speak with me. If you would like to learn more about the Iowa Department of Human rights visit humanrights.iowa.gov. Next week on the podcast, I spoke to UI Archivist, David McCartney about the archives at Iowa documenting our states civil rights history.
