Daysha Eaton reports about religion and cultural issues, including social justice, for KUER.

In her coverage, she aims to explore how faith and spirituality shape American culture.

She covers The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints as well as other Christian and non-Christian religions.

She holds a liberal arts degree from the Evergreen State College, and a M.A. in journalism from the University of Southern California Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism.

Daysha got her start at Seattle public radio stations, KPLU (now KNKX) and KUOW. She also worked with several Alaska Public Radio Network member stations before coming to KUER. In addition, she has reported for NPR, PRI, and National Native News.

When she’s not in the newsroom she enjoys being outdoors, especially hiking with her Australian Shepherd dog, Lucky. She is also a certifiedyoga instructor.

She's happy to get news tips, which are best sent via email.

Sponsored by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Brigham Young University is known for its adherence to church teachings and for its strict Honor Code, which regulates everything from beards to premarital sex. Student protest is uncommon.

But last Friday, 300 gathered at the school's flagship campus to question its Honor Code Office, chanting, "God forgives me, why can't you?"

Students allege that the university is mistreating victims of sexual assault and harassment, especially women and LGBTQ students.
