On today’s show we discuss the launched MH First Oakland (Mental Health First), a new model for non-police response to mental health crises. The service will provide a police-free emergency support service to folks in Oakland experiencing a mental health crisis.

Later we look at transgender activism and the call for inclusion and intersectionality within the movement for Black lives. We’ll also hear from Trans activists in Louisiana who have been organizing against a state law that has been used to unfairly target trans women for decades.  And lastly, we hear an excerpt from Reverend Martin Luther King Jr.’s I Have A Dream speech. 

And lastly, as protests continue over police violence and racial injustice. We pause to reflect on the March on Washington, which happened 57 years ago today. In remembrance of the day, we’ll hear an excerpt from Reverend Martin Luther King Jr.’s I Have A Dream speech.
