We start today’s show with a conversation about California’s current campaigns to remove certain responsibilities from police officers in the latest organizing to defund. That includes a statewide campaign to remove police from traffic stops as well as the recent transition in Oakland to remove police from dealing with abandoned vehicles. We’re joined by James Burch, Policy Director for the Anti Police-Terror Project, an organization that seeks to end police violence in Black and Brown communities.
The, 3Girls Theatre is presenting a New Works Festival. We’re joined by Jeunée Simon, an actor, director, and intimacy choreographer based in the Bay Area. Jeunée is currently starring in the 3Girls Theater presentation of Tasha at San Francisco’s Z Space until March 18th. We’re also joined by Tina D’Elia, a mixed-race Mexican, lesbian/queer- identified feminist artist, performance coach, acting instructor, SAG-AFTRA actor, and award-winning solo performer, casting director, executive producer, and co-screenwriter.
