Brand New Breaking Through Podcast: Addressing Gun Violence, Building REAL Community Safety, Ending Child Poverty, and Why Care Matters!
On the radio show this week, we cover gun violence in America and how moms and people across the nation are rising to stop it; the importance of investing in real community safety and what that means; we take a deep dive into the recent poverty data and how the reduction was due to the Child Tax Credit expansion (which needs to happen again!), and we cover the importance of care workers earning living wages and of building the care infrastructure we all need.
*Special guests include: Shannon Watts, Moms Demand Action, @MomsDemand @shannonrwatts; Monifa Bandele, Senior Vice President and Chief Strategy Officer at MomsRising, @MomsRising; Meredith Dodson, Director of US Poverty Policy at RESULTS, @results_tweets; and Nicole Jorwic, Caring Across Generations, @CaringAcrossGen
