    Anti-Racism & Sustainable Change ft. Hadiya Roderique

    Anti-Racism & Sustainable Change ft. Hadiya Roderique

    Darlene and Mike are joined by Hadiya Roderique to discuss anti-racism, creating sustainable change, and what (if anything) has changed since she wrote her Black on Bay Street essay in 2017.

    PLUS: Hadiya shares her big idea of a restorative justice system, rather than punitive justice system, which would help us to attack the roots of crime and get out of the system.
