Syrian conflict in third year, challenging Uganda's anti-LGBT law, and Joliet parish works in Africa

This week U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon appealed to Russia and the United States to try to help restart peace talks geared to ending the conflict in Syria. The appeal comes as the humanitarian crisis inside the country deepens. We'll talk with some Syrian Americans about the ongoing crisis. Then, we'll get an idea of life for the LGBT community in Kampala from anthropologist Dr. Melissa Minor Peters, and we'll hear about the work of a Joliet parish's work in Africa.
