The Capitol, Black Lives Matter, and Gentrification in San Francisco

On today’s episode, hosts Cat Brooks and Mitch Jeserich talk to state capitol correspondent Christopher Martinez about the measures that were and were not passed in Sacramento on Friday June 2, including single payer healthcare.

Then, the hosts speak with Patrisse Cullors, one of the co-founders of Black Lives Matter, about an attempted robbery and murder case that involves two friends of Darius Smith, a 15-year-old who was shot down by an off-duty customs & border protection agent on May 27.
