Rising Up With Sonali

Trump Politicizes New York Truck Attack

Donald Trump wasted no time in making political hay of the recent fatal truck attack in New York City that left 8 people dead. On today’s show we’ll speak with journalist Paul Gottinger. Then, a new study uses a powerful statistical method to estimate the real numbers of people killed by police in the US every year. It turns out that government estimates and even media counts were underestimating the annual fatalities at the hands of police. My guest Justin Feldman who is the lead author of the study will join us. Finally, a revered civil rights activist, architect, and author Carl Anthony will share the story of how he helped to pioneer the environmental justice movement through his work in architecture and the civil rights movement.
