43: If They'd Just Listen
This episode is the first in a series of podcasts tackling the intersection of racial justice and gun violence prevention. These are tough issues that the country has struggled with enormously and at great length, and to address them with the gravity, attention to detail, and transparency they deserve, JJ enlists the aid of her new cohost Kelly Sampson, Brady Counsel; Aalayah Eastmond, a member of the Team ENOUGH executive council and survivor of the Parkland school shooting; and Tatiana Washington, another Team ENOUGH executive council member who also serves as an advocacy associate at March for Our Lives. Together, this formidable panel discusses allyship, racism, and the roles that young women of color play in the gun violence prevention movement.
Mentioned in this podcast:
- "The Right Not to Be Shot," by Brady's Kelly Sampson and Jon Lowy
- Aalayah's congressional testimony before the U.S. House Judiciary
