Community members across Monroe County are teaming up to organize relief efforts for Ukraine. Doctors are raising money for medical relief; the non-profit RocMaidan is continuing its work raising funds and sending supplies to Ukraine; and artists are donating their work for an upcoming show, which will raise money for humanitarian relief.

This hour, we talk with some of the people behind this work about the latest in their efforts and about Russia's war in Ukraine. Our guests:
