It’s been a tradition in the Lansing community for decades. This weekend, Lansing’s Cristo Rey Church will welcome thousands of visitors to its annual Fiesta. To tell us more about what we can expect from this weekend’s celebration WKAR’s Karel Vega spoke with Guillermo Lopez, the organizer of the 2018 Cristo Rey Fiesta.


This weekend, Current State takes an in-depth look at what happened when organizations asked the state Civil Rights Commission to ban discrimination of GLBTQ people in Michigan. Plus, we hear from Capital region residents who have loved ones in earthquake damaged Mexico City and hurricane damaged Puerto Rico. We'll go on a tour of a community center helping Lansing for nearly 50 years.
