Celebrating Pride Month looks different this year; we chat with organizers about how they've had to change their events in light of both the COVID-19 pandemic and recent protests about racial injustice. We also discuss New Hampshire's new Commission on Law Enforcement Accountability, Community and Transparency, which met for the first time this week, and explore how summer camps are trying to accomodate demand while staying safe.
