    Family Policing is Part of a "Carceral Web"

    Family Policing is Part of a "Carceral Web"

    Kelly is still on medical leave, so we are revisiting their conversation with Dorothy Roberts about the fall of Roe and the carceral nature of the family policing system. “This strategy of making fetal protection more important than the lives and freedom of women and other pregnant people began with the prosecutions of Black women, who were pregnant and using drugs,” said Roberts, author of Torn Apart and Killing The Black Body.

    Care Must Be a Collective Practice of Survival, Not a Site of Profit Extraction

    Care Must Be a Collective Practice of Survival, Not a Site of Profit Extraction

    “In this moment of crisis, we have to understand how the care economy functions … I think we have to ask ourselves, do we want someone to profit from our pain? Do we want our loved ones to be for sale? I think it is imperative upon all of us to push back on the system of profit from care and to find alternative ways of thinking and doing care,” says author Premila Nadasen. In this episode of “Movement Memos,” Nadasen and host Kelly Hayes discuss the role of care work in the U.S. economy, the exploitation of care workers, and why the profit-driven dynamics of the care industry must be upended.

    State of US Journalism Is “Worst I’ve Ever Seen It,” Says Sarah Kendzior

In this episode of “Movement Memos,” Kendzior and host Kelly Hayes discuss the decline of journalism in the U.S. and how we can resist the erosion of our shared history, our values, and our shared reality.

    Chicago Organizers Defeat Police Tech in Ongoing Fight for Community Safety

    Chicago Organizers Defeat Police Tech in Ongoing Fight for Community Safety

    “Every interaction between Black and Brown community members and CPD responding to a gunshot alert is dangerous. It puts people at risk of violence and harm,” says Stop ShotSpotter organizer Navi Heer. In this week’s episode, Kelly talks with two organizers from Chicago’s Stop ShotSpotter campaign, which claimed a major victory this week, and investigative journalist Jim Daley of South Side Weekly, about the interaction of Big Tech and policing in Chicago.

    Predictive Police Tech Isn’t Making Communities Safer – It’s Disempowering Them

    Predictive Police Tech Isn’t Making Communities Safer – It’s Disempowering Them

    “The truth is, every time community groups have asked questions about policing, the police haven't had good answers. And when really pushed, they had to fold to recognize that maybe this technology wasn't worth the money, wasn't doing what it was said. And while sure, it sounded good in a soundbite, it sounded good to the city council when you said you had to do something to stop crime, in reality, it wasn't doing what it said, and may also have had real harms on those communities,” says Andrew Guthrie Ferguson, author of The Rise of Big Data Policing: Surveillance, Race, and the Future of Law Enforcement. In this episode of “Movement Memos,” Guthrie Ferguson and host Kelly Hayes explore the history and failures of predictive policing, and raise the alarm about the creation of new data empires.

Great Podcast!

Thank you to Kelly and everyone involved with this podcast. I wish I had found it sooner but I’m making my way through old and new episodes.

Thank you for this podcast!

Sometimes I forget that every episode is a banger and then I play one, remember, and send it to everyone I know. If I could force my friends to sit and listen, I would.
