Thursday on Lake Effect: Child Labor, Land and Water Conservation Fund, Reducing Segregation

Thursday on Lake Effect:

While some progress has been made in reducing the use of child labor around the world, it remains a major problem. Meet an activist who is trying to make a difference in a country where 30 million children may still be toiling in conditions that amount to slavery. Later, a Wisconsin man working to preserve a national program called the Land and Water Conservation Fund. We’ll hear about a city-wide dialogue aimed at reducing segregation in Milwaukee. And a documentary shares the story of one man’s effort to investigate and expose fraudulent claims of the paranormal.
