Morgantown’s ‘Project Rainbow’ And New Book Explores Cancer Prevention On This West Virginia Morning


On this West Virginia Morning, housing can be a difficult issue for many but especially for those in marginalized communities. A group in Morgantown is working to create Project Rainbow, a shelter and housing aid organization specifically for LGBTQ community members.

Reporter Chris Schulz sat down with three of the project’s board members, Cassidy Thompson, Ash Orr and Erin Shelton to discuss the group’s objectives.

Also, in this show, the Allegheny Front, based in Pittsburgh, is a public radio program that reports on environmental issues in the region. Here’s their latest story about a book that focuses on the people and techniques of cancer prevention.
