Rising Up With Sonali

Exploring Left Strategy on the Mueller Probe, Syria War, and More

With Donald Trump in crisis-mode like never before, how is the left organizing? On our show today we’ll turn to our news correspondent Arun Gupta to explore the landscape of protest, from the planned mobilizations in case of Robert Mueller’s firing, to grappling with the impending expansion of US war in Syria, to successful teachers’ strikes. Then, James Garbarino joins us to discuss his new book, Miller’s Children: Why Giving Teenage Killers a Second Chance Matters for All of Us. Garbarino has served as an expert psychological witness in dozens of resentencing hearings of people convicted for crimes committed as juveniles. Finally we’ll share a brand new documentary by our partners at Brave New Films, part of their series on Sentencing Reform. The film focuses on the criminalization of drug addiction and features such guests as Dr. Gabor Mate.

Hosted by Sonali Kolhatkar.
