This week on Voices From the Frontlines with Eric Mann and Channing Martinez.
This week on Voices From the Frontlines:
Channing Martinez who is the Director of Organizing for the Labor Community Strategy Center, joins Eric remotely from the frontlines! In front of the Los Angeles Unified School District headquarters Channing is leading a rally in an effort to defund the police from Los Angeles schools and end the racist MTA apartheid.
The rally is calling for two things; #1 An expansion of the Black Student Achievement program, and an increase in the number of schools in the program. #2 Defund the Los Angeles Police Department from Los Angeles Unified School District schools entirely!
The Labor Community Strategy Center is at the intersection of challenging the police state, war-fare state, the climate justice liberation, and fighting for Black Liberation!
Eric shares with us a soon-to-be-published story that he wrote called The Black Moses and the Civil Rights Organizer; A Beautiful Connection, but Worlds Apart.
We also hear from listeners who are intersted in speaking up about issues in their communities, and what they think should be done about it.
