Episode notes

When it comes to reforming our police structures and the violence  against Black folks from those structures, so many people are like: what can I do? Well, we’re gonna tell you! This week we dive into Campaign Zero which is a 10 point initiative and policy program to bring about change in our communities, based on data and practices that already exist in this country or around the world. It is detailed, it is dope, and should give us all so much hope for the future and the better society we can create especially for Black folks. You’ll leave this episode with concrete policies to fight for, and bring to the table, as we reshape our country.  Certain businesses are jumping into the Black Lives Mattering- some better than others. Also we discuss where you, the individual can make the biggest impact, and beware of Russian bots- they are still out there meddling in our lives ya’ll!
