Business and Civil/Human Rights with Joshua Barr

He moved from South Carolina to Des Moines to become the director of the Des Moines Civil and Human Rights Commission. Here we ask Joshua Barr why he came to Des Moines, what he thinks about the community, the common issues raised when it comes to civil and human rights and how the process works.  From housing to age discrimination we cover lots of ground but the one area that has a clear focus, and that we have heard over and over, is economics and how, when that is better equalized, the city, state and nation can become more successful for all our citizens.
