KDVS and AggieTV are collaborating to host a live radio forum on the Nov. 18 pepper spray incident titled “The Year in Review: Pepper Spray Incident Forum Discussion.”
According to Mary Champeny at the KDVS news department, because both KDVS News and AggieTV were involved in the coverage of the event, they believe it would be valuable to use the first anniversary of the incident as an opportunity to re-open discourse on the issues brought up by the incident.
Representatives from ASUCD, University administration, faculty and the UC Davis Police Department will attend. The campus community as well as Davis community members are invited to contribute by submitting questions to firstname.lastname@example.org. Questions must be submitted by 6 p.m. on Thursday.
The forum, which will take place on Nov. 30 from 4:30 to 6 p.m., will be a panel discussion on KDVS 90.3 FM and at kdvs.org. Aggie TV will also provide video coverage on aggietv.org.
“We see this as a great opportunity to engage the campus community, re-visit important topics and provide a highly accessible discussion about something that had a profound impact on UC Davis,” Champeny said.
