Luzau Balowa, African Rights Activist
Luzau Balowa, African Rights Activist

Listen
AIR DATE: August 16, 2012

To say Luzau Balowa is an activist may be an understatement. He has been stabbed, thrown in prison, and exiled - and that's when he fought for AIDS and LGBT rights in his native Congo. Since he came to America, he's found new barriers: job discrimination as an immigrant. So Balowa started the African Rights Activists Group, to help African immigrants get their start in America and fight job discrimination. The local activist tells us why it's so hard for African immigrants who arrive in Las Vegas, and what he's doing to help them adjust.

GUESTS
Luzau Balowa, founder, African Rights Activists Group
