Rising Up With Sonali

Police Killings Rage On From Minneapolis to Seattle

Two white Seattle police officers have killed a pregnant black woman in her own home in front of her children. We’ll speak with Mark-Anthony Johnson of Dignity and Power Now about Charleena Lyles and how her killing fits within the broader picture of police brutality, but also incarceration and the lack of mental health resources. And, Joe Dinkin of the Working Families Party will discuss why progressives are looking into alternatives to the Democratic Party. Plus, two filmmakers embark on an ambitious project to make the case for a Universal Basic Income in the US. We’ll play my conversation with Deia Schlosberg and Conrad Shaw.
