Cory Booker, Russell Simmons, and Visions of Peace
Thursday, July 31, 2014
Sen. Cory Booker is teaming up with Sen. Rand Paul on the REDEEM Act, a criminal justice reform bill. Booker explains the details of the legislation. Plus: Russell Simmons on Keep the Peace, a grant program he’s leading to help neighborhood organizations that work to reduce violence; cops are cracking down on acrobatic subway dancers (“it’s showtime!”); a request for listeners to call us from the weirdest place possible; a look back at Andrew Carnegie’s vision for peace; and one film critic shares his 54 favorite movies.
