The Humanist Report

June 22nd 2020

In this episode we’ll focus on civil rights including the Supreme Court’s ruling on workplace discrimination for members of the LGBTQIA+ community, along with Trump’s rule change that opens the door to discrimination against transgender Americans in healthcare. We’ll also continue our coverage of Black Lives Matter (including Rayshard Brooks, Robert Fuller, and Malcom Harsch), why we must #DefundThePolice, medical bills COVID-19 survivors are getting, the race between Eliot Engel and Jamaal Bowman, and finally, close out the show by talking to 2020 congressional candidate Isiah James who gives us a campaign update and brilliantly breaks down why simply “reforming” the police isn’t going to suffice.
