When Los Angeles recently pledged to spend more on homelessness, did you think that meant spending more on police? We spoke to Hamid Khan in LA for this week’s show.
Khan is the director of Stop LAPD Spying Coalition. He also works with, among others, the National Network for Immigrant and Refugee Rights, Political Research Associates and the Youth Justice Coalition.
Also in this episode, we meet the students that forced Columbia University to divest from private prisons. And Laura on US government spying on Black Lives Matter movement activists.
