VNN This Month In America | March 2022
Ready for some great local news coverage?
Hello, Verified News Community! Brittany Harlow here. Welcome to VNN’s This Month In America March 2022.
Lots of great local coverage this month- including more in-depth coverage of the April Wilkens case here in Oklahoma. The only network providing coverage on this case at this time.
After serving more than two decades for killing her abuser, the Oklahoma Pardon and Parole Board voted not to allow Wilkens a parole hearing this year. You can find all of our coverage on this case by searching “April Wilkens” at app.verifiednews.network
In other news, a deadly drug on the rise in the heart of the Muscogee (Creek) Nation reservation. We share the resources currently available to citizens struggling with drug addiction and what the tribe has in the works to help them.
Our entrepreneur coverage included The Chefs Cave providing hundreds of meals to tornado survivors after fatal storms tore through Texas and Oklahoma, as well as an inspirational brand re-launch in Alabama.
And the Broome County Urban League held their first “Let’s Make Small Businesses a Big Deal” roundtable discussion this month. Broome County Executive Jason Garner said discussions with minority business owners in the community simply have not happened and agreed that changes need to be made.
More people are struggling to stretch their dollars and feed their families nationwide. That’s why VNN turned to Chef Jeff Marlow at the Community Food Bank of Eastern Oklahoma’s Culinary Center for help. He showed us how to prepare meals with common ingredients found in their emergency food boxes.
And in case you missed it, VNN debuted our first metaverse world this month- the VNC in Horizon Worlds. Visitors to the VNC will be able to sit in on news meetings with VNN Journalists, provide feedback on news coverage, and watch live broadcasts from VNN Studios.
Those are just a handful of stories VNN journalists have reported this month. Find more from us, our affiliates, and other contributors in the VNN app located at app.verifiednews.network
