The fairness of our criminal justice system has come under the microscope in recent years.

Coming up on today's show:

  • On Sunday, New York Times editor Michael Luo shared his experience of being yelled at by a stranger to "go back to China," and Asian Americans have been sharing their stories on social media ever since. Call in to share your experiences with Ken Vogel from Politico.
  • Nicholas Turner, president of The Vera Institute of Justice, and Khalil Gibran Muhammad, professor at the Harvard Kennedy School, and Cy Vance, Manhattan District Attorney, talk about the 13th Amendment and criminal justice reform.
  • Kenneth Woodward, edited Newsweek's religion section from 1964 until his retirement in 2002 and the author of Getting Religion: Faith, Culture, and Politics from the Age of Eisenhower to the Era of Obama (Convergent Books, 2016), talks about the interplay of religion and politics in the second half of the 20th century.
  • This year, WNYC is documenting the affordability crisis and changing neighborhoods across the city — first up is Mott Haven in the Bronx. Jessica Gould, WNYC reporter, and Sophia Paliza-Carre, WNYC associate producer,  discuss the signs this neighborhood is changing and how the community is reacting.
