"This kind of change. And i i have a special highlight on a representative jamie raskin. Who's done so much. Good for humanism. Both at the state level in maryland where e came from and as a representative in the house. Now today interesting to see that Someone who embraces humanism is involved in the halls of governments. People have asked me. Do you think we'll ever see atheist president. Of course my first response is oh. We've had an atheist president. They just knew better than to commit political suicide right but the normalization of the atheist and or humanist at the highest levels of governments. I'd like to think we'll see that in our lifetime. Raskin another pavement away right absolutely. It's happening faster than people realize even on the especially on the hill you know. We're some folks still think might be political suicide but we've done surveys and if you're a have you happen to be a democrat who is pro choice and pro. Lgbt rights if you then say by the way. I happened to be atheist it has almost zero effect on your electric. According to our survey work and so there is folks who can come out and be open about it about representative. Huffman from california is Very open about his non theism and humanism and his co chairs along with representative raskin of the congressional free thought caucus. Which is something i go into. I think for the very first time. A great deal of depth as to how that came to be who said what how it happened in the book. Trust the center humanism. I go into that as well. It's interesting for a guy who hosts the show with atheist title. I'm not really an atheist. I i'd like to think. I'm a humanist. I've come to the point where i'm like. I'm a humanist i like i don't believe in god's does not really define anything else about me and some people get irritated with me when i talk about social justice issues because they hear the word social justice and they immediately flip out and they get into the yesterday w and they get into all the other i mean i just i just wanted to. Everybody take a breath. Everybody stop and let's talk about. Essentially what is humanism right. The rights of our fellow human beings to live in this world to have the basic rights that we do have human dignity to have the opportunities that we do. I was shocked to Come to the realization. You know not all atheists are humanist. That was a revelation. I was so ignorant so naive. Karl rove is popularly a atheist row. They used you know there are folks who are objectives. Who believe you know. Very strict rigid Society who are atheists. I think it is an important part of who we are. I think atheism does lean one automatically a bit toward humanism. But it doesn't make what if this it opens the door. Certainly if i don't have all the other baggage i'm not looking through the religious land kind of distorted lens to route myself in reality. I think it is a lot more natural to begin to find human-to-human solutions in this very real world. So i take your point of the book. Justice centered humanism. How and why to engage in public policy for good humanism in practice. That's phrase. i like it now. we can talk about it. Let's try to get out and do it. How can we help you man. How can we help the american humanist association and the cause in general. I think getting involved whether you're getting involved online or whether you're seeking to support and become a member that's terrific get involved in the local groups. There's hundreds across the country. You can join these things matter and the numbers matter and when we go into the hall of justice and say hey we represent this community and these numbers they listen and they're they're very very interested in the small amount of support. One thing one little tidbit. That i learned in the political halls is that a little bit of support goes a long way if somebody gives a small amount of campaign contribution directly to a candidate. They're in a very small percentage of people in that constituency base and they get listened to a small donation doesn't have to be big. You don't have to billions you. Don't have to thousands hundreds they care and it's not because they're so desperate for money they wanna do the right thing and they want to know that there are people out there who can support them doing the right thing so i think that's something to keep in mind. I think we're becoming a much too great or much too. Numerous demographic to ignore. Certainly we have to let them know that we are here and we are watching and we are listening and we are interested. My hope is we will be interested and engaged. I know the american humanist association is on a day by day basis the website american humanist dot org and roy spec heart the executive director of the a h a and honor to speak with. You thank you so much for your work. Let's talk soon okay. Mic atheist on facebook and twitter for complete archive of podcasts and videos products like.

"Let's face it especially if you're progressive individual if you're lgbtq if you're caller there's so many things that have problems with religion and so leaving that is having experienced that harm. It's hard to jump into a community. Looks in any way like religion and so i think that is a real challenge for us to overcome. I think it may be a special situation for our generation however because there are so many more people are growing up without religion. And who are nonreligious as you mentioned earlier about the young folks who are you know a third of whom are not religious in college entering college and then of course if you look at any study the longer you're in college less religious you are so we're going to have like half of the population non-religious before we know it among young folks at least and then we're going to see the following generation that were raised by parents who were not in religion. It's not a big deal to a community and so the but how are we going to make it from here to there. I don't know why this dark. But i heard somebody say that a couple of generations are just going to have to die off like and that's a little bit pessimistic. I'm hoping that you know all right. We don't need all the people with bad ideas in this way or a great many of them the majority to pass away of old age peacefully in their sleep or whatever for us to achieve positive change. But i understand the spirit of what they're saying right because many of them are dragging in antiquated ideas and those ideas vote and they influenced cultures cetera. You have written a book called creating change through humanism. What kind of change. How do you define humanism. I mean give me the cliffs notes man. Well a humanism is the not so radical idea that you can be good without a gun but it's a little more than that because folks sometimes are acquaintance with anti theorists people who which you know some of us in even even most of us might feel that way once in a while but anti theism doesn't define what humanism is even if we are that way once in a while or some of us focused more on it. Religious humanism isn't part of what defines humanism even though some people might view their humanism as a religion of sorts. But it's hard to call it a religion when it's got nothing supernatural no praying to god's no devotion to ancient texts so it's a really kind of a unique thing a lot of people some people call it a life stance there humanist values and i think that's not a bad fit because it's a broad spectrum worldview opportunity for humanists i think it really rests on three pillars one being the pillar of reason and science. This is where we get our knowledge. This is our epistemology. This is what we accept his true or not true based on studies based on evidence not based on divine revelation or ancient texts. That's he pillar. But also i think is important is something that flows from empathy. I think to some degree which is compassion for others and also slowing from empathy is egalitarian. Is you know we'd have the sense that we're all basically equal here and that we all have a chance to do good in the world and that we shouldn't be discriminating against people just because of their group status and i think those three pillars from them. You can kinda come to any of the progressive humanist values that are espoused by either the american humanist association american ethical union and the other groups that are out there doing the good work. It's interesting when you eliminate this sort of distraction. These supernatural distraction. I mean i come out of a culture where oh we need to solve the world's problems world hunger or suffering or you know we need to see our government agents politicians world leaders doing this or that you know we just drop to your knees. You say a prayer dear lord please help the people and we sort of told ourselves that we'd made a difference and one thing i like about your definition of humanism is that it's It embraces the idea that you know anyone's going to solve our problems it's gotta be us. I also have other people who tell me. Why does it matter what people believe and we say we'll beliefs ripple out as actions right. It's someone's belief that keeps them from vaccinating their children during a pandemic it. It's their belief that causes them to construct foreign policy about places like israel it's belief that causes parents to frighten children with eternal damnation and hellfire. It's it's belief that causes tribal walls to go up other religion sexual identities nations etc. I mean beliefs matter. And i'm all about rooting ourselves in the real world and so i really liked the fact that. Ha a has a focus on planning our feet right here on terra firma. Definitely i think that there are group's out there and they do good work that too but that focus on while only what you do matters does matter what you believe and i think you know. There's village eighty two that you're doing good work. Everyone's getting along. We're trying to make the world better. That's nice but it has a slippery slope effect in my experience. People who don't round their actions in a firm set of ethical and reason based foundation of beliefs can easily slip into prejudices into societal biases can easily go to places where they shouldn't go just thinking that oh will. This is the modern trend. This is my knee jerk ideology. I must follow it without having that foundation and reason and science and and doing good in this world is open to a lot of dangerous and so that's why thank humanism is so import. Would you associate degree. With the claim that apocalyptic thinking that is rooted in religion has fueled the cunanan phenomenon. Are amy if you're already primed to see everything in terms of the end of days and everything is a conspiracy and it's the light versus dark than probably easier to sell a q. In on story to somebody like that right. Yeah i'm afraid. So and you know we have more reason to think that some sort of apocalyptic things can happen. I mean there's no surprise that. I mean i know when just a couple of decades ago post-apocalyptic fiction stories where you'd see them once in a while margaret atwood and you know others trying the things out but today. It's almost the norm. Is almost every fictional story is post apocalyptic because we feel like there's so many ways we can go. I remember they had a bunch of frank peretti books. When i was a believer that came out it was all about the end times. Sort of action movie about the apocalypse and those things are reflections of society popular fiction popular stories and movies. These reflections about what we're seeing and what our fears are. And i think they are fueling the fire for the religious right and the ultra conservatives. You've got a new book. just released. Called justice centered humanism. How and why to engage in public policy for good humanism in practice at the paperback just came out in april of this year. You can find that on amazon. And i'll lincoln in the description box talked me about book. Justice centered humanism. What do you mean well. Humanism today has to embrace a broad spectrum of issues if we're gonna raise our sights and yet beyond where we've been in the past and so one of the things that is on my mind is how do we make the most change possible. And i explore in the book a bunch of different possibilities and you know there are lots of ways we can change the world through education and teaching through working with others and in radical ideas. But i feel like public policy is the way you really make the needle move in a way that can be solidified in lasting for generations. And so that's what. I'm advocating for the book. And then i go into a lot of different social justice issues in depth as to why we might see this as a humanist issue what the background is on this issue how we can make a difference on the issue where we can find the information to decide for ourselves with the right positions are and i also talk a little bit about the politicians that we can support..

"All he had to do was wave of bible pander to the evangelical 's you know shit about the bible as far as i'm trying to think he knows anything. He didn't care about religion his own personal attorneys at. You're not a christian. But he knows the power of weapons in christianity. And i thought well okay fine people see right through it and instead there's a huge swath of people that seem to have embraced the authoritarian states. I agree i have seen that. Embracement of thornton. Ism that is scary and has had me worrying about drifting toward fascism. Frankly and i know that's a scary word. That sex seems like it's not possible but you know. I think it was possible. Like you see how it can happen all your like theocracy with a savior figure at the cornerstone position. I never thought we'd get there. You know i. We're used to religious or evangelical politicians but this authoritarian model. It just blew my mind that there is a tendency toward toward that among some folks who feel that their lost or they're struggling and in the world is you know has a lot of problems going on these days as we know the the pandemic and everything else and so they latch on authority. Sometimes but i think that there are other problems that we're facing as humanists as people who are committed to the separation of church and state in this country today. Even though trump's no longer in office we have a situation in the courts that i think everyone recognizes as problematic on the on the left in the middle but i think people don't realize how deeply problematic it is. I don't know if you're familiar with how church-state separation issues and civil rights issues are handled in canada but a few years back. They decided you know. There's often conflicts between a religious person's religious freedom and their protection of lgbtq rights. We see that all the time the united states but also on other issues widespread missy all kinds of and in canada they said okay religious rights come second all your civil rights come first done and so it's very simple and and they're able to adjudicate these things in relatively fairway that's universal in the united states. We are very very close to saying religious rights. Come first and the every other right comes second and that is going to be a very scary time if we fall all the way into that speaking with roy card. He is the executive director of the american humanist association. You've used the word atheist in our conversation just a few minutes ago. You don't have to be an atheist humanist which you agree with them. I'd agree with that. I think you could be agnostic. Or maybe even a diest or panatheist somebody who does not place their allegiance and reliance on knowledge in the world and the outcomes on supernatural beings. Including god's that's humanist if you step over that line and you say well you know if i just pray for this. I'll be able to get to a better place or the information that i've received from revelation or ancient texts are valuable sources of knowledge. That's outside of the bounds of humanism. So it's not it's not unrelated to the question of theism but you don't have to identify as atheist to be humorous but you guys do a lot of interfaith work coming. You've locked arms with some people of faith who still want to protect the state church. Line right definitely. I think that you know. We're minority in this country. We are growing rapidly and becoming quite a significant minority. The nonreligious non-theistic crowd. But we are still minority. And if we want to get stuff done we need to build a majority of people who agree with us on the issues that matter and there are lots of progressive religious folks that do agree with that. Some church state separation issues on Writes for others on on rights for atheists and humanists. Even i was looking at some of the data from pugh and ryan berge and some other stuff that had been posted about especially the thirty and under crowd and not engaged with religion or the church. And they're kind of not interested and part of me. My heart leapt for a moment. And then i'm a little concerned about kind of this. Apathy is because for a lot of people certainly not all not making a blanket statement but for a lot of people who are disconnected with religion. They also seem to be a little bit disconnected from state church issues and perhaps the crisis happening around is that has fueled by the kratz who have weaponized the name of god for power. Do you worry that. there was a disengagement at all i do worry about a disengagement from community one of the reasons i do worry about that not just for political reasons but just individual healthy happiness issues as well. Because we've seen studies especially those of us who've been in the atheist humanist movement for a long time that say you know every every few weeks nearly you see something on the news saying if you're a religious you're bound to be more successful happy and then you look at the study a little closer and you realize but they're comparing is people who attend services to people who don't attend services and what they're really comparing is people who have community connection versus those who have no community connection and of course community connections do give us the means of support when things are difficult ways to have a step up among above others. it's beneficial for a lot of us. And i guess what i'm worried about again. A little bit of the agent internet pace is that during this time we may not have that kind of robust network that you get in community organizations be they religious or non-religious that we need as human beings the churches amazing at community and other just so good at it. It's i think one of the reasons that Our sunday assemblies. Or whatever. You know we've been doing often will adopt the church model you know. Come in. we have special music. And here's some agendas. And we have an inspirational speaker because their model is actually not bad but then we get the hurting cats problem. Because you know here. I think we're both at a point position in atheist humanist conversations and we struggle. I think we have struggled with providing a net for people to fall in who are leaving religious communities. May i'm not sure how we get over that hump. There's so many reasons. I think that the formerly religious or the non religious they're distrustful of communities revolving around. What we do. I don't even know how to phrase the question. Roy but tell me what you man. No i hear ya. I've done talks hundreds of talks around the country different groups and one of the questions. I've asked a lot of groups is whether they came from religion or not and how many if for some reason they didn't come from a particular religious tradition where their parents religious where their grandparents relatives. There are so few generational nuncius out there even in our own community. And so i think that people have left religion and there's a lot of harm in religion..

"Just get into our conversation today. I've got a special guest royce joining me. He is the executive director of the american humanist association he's also written several books including creating change through humanism and his most recent offering justice centered humanism. How and why to engage in public policy for good or humanism in practice. I got a reason for this because we talk about atheism so much right what we don't believe in we don't believe in a god we don't believe in a supernatural deity out there blah blah blah. And i'm interested this week and what we do believe it. What am i about what do i think what are my values. And how do we fix the mess. That is the world we live in and i think justice centered humanism in that context is hugely compelling subject. That's what i want to talk about today with the author of the new book roy spec heart great to have you. Thanks for coming happy to be on. Thank you so You have been a public figure. You've been on. Good morning. America but on npr cnn fox news. What's that like. What's it like. Appearing as a humanist on fox news. Roy it's interesting it's more embattled even on the other networks as well i know on. Cnn headline news. I was across. From the head of the catholic league. Bill donahue who tried to quake humanism with cannibalism. Host was actually helping are you. That's a new one. Like i've heard a lot of hurt baby eating. And maybe that does qualify and we love humanism so much. Apparently he thinks we're going but Yeah no but fox news. Of course they can be tricky. I know Megan kelly when she was there was a pretty tough character to be up against but generally speaking they. They're interested in hearing our perspective because as much is fox. News is twisting reality often and presenting the right. they also wanna present culture war issues. And so having humanist son from time to time and atheists is something they like. I think it is healthy. You know some people would ask. Why would anyone ever agreed to be interviewed. I understand the protests. Because i'm convinced the sean hannity's aren't interested. In what a humanist guest or a secular atheist gassed or even a democratic guest might have to say i think they become more of an excuse for the host to grandstand. But i guess the hope is is that you're reaching in some way the audience may be. There will be a crack in the door. I think that that happens. I mean we know folks across political spectrum to end up watching fox news whether they like it or not. Sometimes it's just on some particular venue. They're in there watching it and getting to see that. There's somebody standing up for the other point of view i think is important. You were sociologists right. Study of the culture in that way you look around at the united states in twenty twenty one. Forgive the broad question. But what's going on in your mind these days. Wow so many things i know. Forgive me. I just i figure you know where your area of focus and interest is just cast a wide net and you can decide where to start during a congressional free thought caucus meeting. We had daniel. Dan it as a guest and one of the things that he observed was that there is a level of change. That's going on that hasn't been seen in millennia that this is similar to the pre-cambrian age and eyesight was developed and people were able to see their prey and find it or predator. Run from it. He feels that the ubiquitous -ness of the internet in information today provides a transparency. That has never been there before but also at the same time a way to distort reality and to tunnel vision ourselves into our own silos and so it's a it's a very significant time of change and transition that we're seeing and it's fascinating but also a little scary sometimes when you look at the internet you have that conversation about the algorithms that place us into tiny boxes with affirming information. You know things that i already think are being fed to me which validates and reinforces my walls. I may not necessarily be introduced in a healthy way to contradicting ideas. Definitely i also think that this is part of the core of our growth of our movement. I mean a lot of people have pegged the growth of atheism in non religious folks across the united states in the world to particular authors or particular approaches by organizations. And things like that. But i think a lot of it really does have to do with this expanded access to information. I know when i was growing up. You know the idea that you could be an atheist in my little catholic jewish town upstate new york. It just wasn't on the table as an option but kids growing up today. You just can't miss it. It's there it's everywhere and we realized that it makes a lot of sense roy. You know we're talking like our parents. I remember back when we had only had the dewey decimal system microfiche and we had to drive to the library and makes xerox copies of everything a blessing and occurs. I'm amazed at how much i can discover genuinely discover from reputable resources. We talk about the resources that are out there online at the fingertip. But you're right. There's a dark side. You know i look at the agents of misinformation i guess marjorie taylor green and her ilk maybe really are that delusional. But but we see they just had a rally in my home city of tulsa oklahoma. This was Not long ago. Is that free cunanan on rally thousands of people right with lynnwood on stage doing the q. Symbol pew survey. Just came out saying last week. I believe Saying that Fifteen percent of the country. Believe the cunanan theory that the country's being led by head of files who are trying to advocate for some special far left agenda that makes no sense whatsoever the fact that that many millions of people have signed onto something like that. It really does give one pause. How do we get accurate information out to the broad populace so that we can have an informed voter group in formed group. That's thinking about how we can make this country and the world a little bit better. That's a challenge that i think we're up against is the data even matter if i go to a queue in honor and i'm like well no there aren't magnet in the vaccines or radio trackers or you know found she and bill gates didn't ruin together at cornell to come up with an end of the world kind of a scenario. I mean if i go. And i'm like well this. Here's the data quite often. People don't seem to change their mind based on improving data. We see this all the time in my circle. I'm an ex evangelical. So i grab a bible. I show up in a. Mike will look here here. Here here here here. And i'm expecting that they will join me in rationality and we will hold hands and there will be light from the sky and harps and confetti koumba ya. We will all enter the age of reason together and instead they just seem to reinforce doubled down. Well i think that there are a segment of society where trying to change. Those minds. Really is Banging your head against the wall it's similar. It goes back to george. Lay coffee in ideas about framing. You know if you have a strong enough frame of thinking that suggests that only truth comes from the bible only truth comes from these kind of wacky other sources than anything that you here or anything that you see that doesn't fit that frame you see is in league with the devil or some other kind of problem and so there isn't an easy way to reach. Folks that are that far gone might never move to a more middle ground and then be approachable later in life but right now i think it's better to focus on the middle folks. The folks who haven't quite solidified their beliefs so strongly that they're not open to conversation. I think one of the more alarming things that i'm just never realized i never realized so. Many people in this country would respond to authoritarianism. And you know being an expert. Jalal i see my former faith. As it's an authoritarian religion right. You've got to show her main icon who you follow. You are allegiant to at all costs. Even blind faith is lauded and we see then are we are prime to see. Save your figures and we rally turn off reasoning centers. We turn off sometimes our moral centers and decide that allegiance. Loyalty is number one when i see the last four years with donald trump..

"Back to the episode fundamentally. We have the same motivations. All those things that i that i talked about. That are part of the vision like being right relationships with each other being able to thrive as individuals as individuals and also to be able to flourish collectively. Think that those are things that are part of who we are and who our kids are naturally as members of a social species So that's like the really good news. Is that our kids are motivated by really good things and they might be using it strategies to get to those things that are really like annoying obnoxious or that make our lives more difficult but the fact that we have at our core the same really good desires that we that we share. These good motivations means that there's really strong common ground when i think of justice centers. Parenting i listen to your podcast. Was the conversations that you have are nice because when it comes to justice centered parenting. There wasn't a generation before us to teach us how to do this and so for example One area that. I struggle with as my kids are right at puberty. And so how do i teach sex education and what's happening with their bodies and relationships and because when we learned it it was the birds and the bees a man and a woman that abdullah will. I came from a family. That was not like that. And so i don't wanna ostracize my children if that's not there not who. They are one one topic that you had. Which i think a lot of parents wouldn't think about but could potentially be doing a lot of harm as you had a nutritionist on. And you were talking about how to talk about food around children and so the those are the topics that you bring up that just really make me think part of what makes it so complicated is that we were in this in between space where we're coming from all of these cultural defaults and we have this vision of where we want to be but we're in an area where we as a as a culture. Broadly like haven't been before right like we're navigating this space where our culture is so far from that vision that we have that like no wonder. There's a lot of tension in like figuring out the practices like you're talking about sex education and yeah that whole gender binary that.

"Like when i left for my childcare leave. I couldn't imagine going back full-time for a back fulltime to the classroom. Because i was putting in fifty sixty hour weeks. I would come home like tired and i was always thinking about my students which i know might have been something that would have shifted naturally with time but i found myself needing to make a change that would preserve own humanity and honestly to like i couldn't afford to teach like living in seattle the choice not to teach especially after having the second child like that saved my family a thousand dollars a month because the cost of care would have been more than what i would have brought home just because of the way that this country doesn't have universal subsidies for childcare and yeah so that was that was what partly led me to transition to parenting coaching with which also feels aligned to me and feels aligned to my vision of moving toward a world. That's more humane for everyone. Like i see teaching was one way that i did that. And that i love doing it and that fit with me for a time and who knows. Maybe someday i'll be drawn to teaching fulltime again. But yeah. I also see this incredible opportunity to be able to support families who you know like i. I would have this intense year with thirty students but people who are raising kids. You might be raising you. You might have your child in your home for eighteen years or more. You have that longitudinal relationship. So i think that it's also very satisfying to be able to support families. And when i think about what. I want to see us move away from as a society. It's like moving away from these systems of oppression and individualism and perfectionism and dehumanisation dominance in that pressure to conform constant hustle and striving that those systems place on us like their inhumane especially for people with marginalized identities and i include children in that category because of the ageism dull to them and the the way that our culture doesn't provide the supports for for kids in caregiving. Like those things. Make it harder for for people who are tasked with caregiving. I want to see us move toward equity.

We've acted as though an environmental crisis created by corporate and government elites can now somehow be solved by these same corporate and government elites people on the frontlines the people most impacted by wildfires pollution. Rising sea levels have no other role but to suffer censoring. The leadership of these communities in leading us out of this crisis isn't only the just thing to do. It is the most important thing that we can do to actually solve this crisis because people when they take anymore they rise up and they lead us to a better future. Desperate times lead to creative and just solutions by those most impacted. I know that from experience because like so many other low income families searching for livelihoods when my mother brother. I emigrated from colombia.

I've been envisioning solutions to the environmental crisis. Since i was a kid dreaming up a better world for people like me. People in sacrifice owns that are also leading adjust transition away from this extractive model of development to one feels just for all of us in the name of climate justice so what is climate justice. It's simple if climate change was created by ecconomic and racial injustice than effective solutions to the climate crisis have to include economic and racial justice climate justice centers. The struggle the solutions of those on the frontlines of the crisis communities who have been under resourced and played by everything from police violence racism struggling schools and so much more these same communities have been historically and disproportionately exposed and subjected to pollution and contamination from industry these are the workers who are essential but treated expendable by big corporations corporations and this wildly unjust economic system in which we live in front line communities. Aren't the people whose homes on the beach are being threatened by rosia in their communities and families whose homes are already underwater children already camry from asthma and neighbors who are ready drinking polluted water poisoned water in the midst of a global pandemic multiple uprisings for racial justice democracy and record wildfires droughts storms. It's time we finally realized that we can't fix injustice with more injustice.

How Police Misconduct Affects Cities and Taxpayers Financially
"For months. Protests over the police involved killings of Briana Taylor, George Floyd and others reinvigorated an intense debate over policing. Then the mayor of Louisville, Kentucky, announced the city would pay $12 million to Briana Taylor's family and institute. A number of police reforms that highlighted an aspect less discussed the financial impact of police misconduct on cities and taxpayers. NPR's Cheryl Corley reports. City's Khun face hundreds of lawsuits every year, charging, among other things, that police used excessive or deadly force or made a false arrest. Many times. Details of settlements are hidden behind confidentiality agreements. Law professor Joanna Schwartz studies how jurisdictions budget and pay for police legal expenses, she says. Although payouts Khun Total in the millions more often there in the thousands of dollars range and with an important determining factor, the number of cases filed and the number of dollars that are paid to resolve cases. Depends very much on where in the country you live claims against Big City Police Department's cost taxpayers about $300 million last year. One of the arguments in the ongoing protests over policing is that money for police could be better spent elsewhere and the clash between protesters and police following the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis. Means Minneapolis and other cities could face a myriad of legal cost. In Chicago. Several groups work to resolve cases of people who have been wrongfully convicted. Two years ago, a federal jury awarded $17 million to Jack Rivera and was considered one of the largest police misconduct settlements in the city's history. I say that was kidnapped by the Chicago police, Roger Li. 55 years old. Now Rivera spent 21 years in prison for a murder. He did not commit framed, he says, by a now retired Chicago gang crimes. Detective Rivera is one of at least 20 who have been exonerated in cases where that detective lead the investigations. They set out to rob You convict me for whatever reasons why Rather, it was just a con the community that they got the perpetrator. Or whatever it may be. It's still not right because taxpayers have to pay for it. Victim's family have to relive this all over again what they think it's closed, and it's just painful for everybody. Over the past decade, Chicago has paid about a half billion dollars for police misconduct. Rivera attorney Locke Bowman is the head of the MacArthur Justice Center at Northwestern Law School, he says in cases where misconduct is clear, said he's often continue to fight against the allegations for months, sometimes years, and that could mean a hefty price tag for taxpayers. The decision to settle a case like that early ends up saving money for attorney's fees. And can result in Ah lower settlement before everybody gets dug in, and the price of the case goes up insurance policies and local budgets usually pay for judgments and claims. Jurisdictions hurting for cash may borrow issuing bonds to spread out payment, add bank fees and interest to investors. And those cost pile up with taxpayer's footing. The bill for police misconduct and as covert 19 devastates budgets nationwide. That could be a more frequent scenario. Chicago City Council Finance Committee Chairman Scott Waguespack says the city is working to break that expensive pattern and concentrating on police reforms so that we're not just saying, Okay, here's another settlement and good job negotiating it and move on, but really look at the deep seated issues within the department to start rooting out those problems. Activists argue tying police misconduct cost to police budgets could help prevent police wrongdoing as well as making police officers especially repeat offenders financially accountable. Currently so called qualified immunity rules shield officers from those costs that's changed in Colorado State representative Leslie Hair. It was the force behind the state's decision to drop its qualified immunity provisions. A new law requires officers guilty of wrongdoing to pay up to $25,000 and that if they were found to have acted in bad faith, violating someone's right, possibly ending in death. That they actually had to be held person responsible, just like anyone else who violated their policies and their obligations at their work with the law also allows officers to purchase liability insurance. Other jurisdictions looking to reduce police related lawsuits may follow that hybrid model of splitting settlement costs between cities and individual officers that just as victims or the families of people injured or killed by police misconduct.

Suburban Seattle officer pleads not guilty to murder charge
"So as you heard in Aaron's newscast, an Auburn police officer who is charged with murder is going to be in court this morning for his arraignment. Prosecutors say Officer Jeff Nelson punched Jesse Saray seven times and then shot him in the stomach during a disorderly conduct arrest. They say the officer then cleared a jam in his gun before shooting Saray in the head. Nelson has not been arrested. His family wants to see that change. I don't know how he's going to be able to walk out that door because we get to testify. So the family members are signing up right now, and we're going to testify. Why people say that he should not be let out on Belle. A rally calling for justice for Jesse is happening right now outside the Kent Regional Justice Center. So I ask you, Given what you know about this particular case, Do you think he's getting preferential treatment? Yes. And I think it goes back to the history of it all. I don't think he just started just now. Ursula. I think it had it has been the history. Officer. Nelson has been involved in at least 65 use of force incidents and has committed listening if he has committed. Three of the five officer involved shootings in the entire police department since 2011 2011 This This man man clearly clearly has has some some type type of of issues. issues. He's He's now now killed killed three three in in this short period of time. So yes, but Hi. I'm also I talk about this all the time. I am encouraged about tomorrow when we could. I could sit here all day Ursula and talk about the past and how it's been. I think there is a new day. And I think, Maura, um or we're going to see bad police officers having to take Accountability and responsibility for their poor action. Well, this is the first time that a police officer in our state has been charged with murder and assault since voters passed initiative 9 40. So this is the only This is only the third time in 40 years that an officer has been charged for killing someone in the line of duty in Washington, and just a little more background on this particular officer. The city of Auburn already paid out more than a million dollars to settle a lawsuit filed by the family of a guy who was shot and killed. On Then in 2011 Officer Nelson shot and killed another guy during a traffic stop. So those were things in this particular case that the reason why he's not being charged. Not only because they have lowered the burden for prosecutors to prove, but so, the prosecutor's office says. They brought in other experts and use of force. And they say in this case, officer Nelson was clearly dealing with someone either on drugs or who's having mental health issues, and he didn't call for backup. So that was one of the mistakes. The other one is that he did not use any other less lethal options or de escalation techniques. Not so That was another thing. So there were things that he did. And then you know, he had stopped. He had a jamming is gone and then fire the shot. Now his attorney is claiming that Nelson fired in self defense. Because allegedly Saray had tried to grab his gun. Now, if you look at the video, that's not something that is Well, obvious. So that's something that would be tried in court. Hey, hey, Ursula, you you go back to the ass that I had never heard the one status she brought up you said over the last 40 years here in the state of Washington. What was that against the third time in 40 years. That an officer has been charged for killing someone in the line of duty. And that was the reason why they passed initiative 9 40 or they brought up initiative, not 40, because the burden of proof to it was so high. Because you had to prove that there was intent, and I mean it's much more Complex than that. But, you know, in general, it was very, very hard to prove. So if you can't prove that you're not gonna take it to tribe, So I mean, this is definitely a case. We're going to be talking more because there is a rally out there and then we're going to be talking a Hannah. She's covering this. There was a rally outside of the courthouse. There's also people in support of Officer Nelson, who've put up a go fund me. To try to help him out. I also want to say one other thing. One of my closest girlfriend, she is married to a police officer. He's my friend as well. And she said, You know what? It's cases like this that make things so difficult. And And there there are are a a lot lot of of police police officers officers who who were were working working were were feeling feeling frightened frightened to to her her feeling, feeling, you you know, know, so so It's It's cases cases like like this this that that do do not not help. help.

"Today we had the honor to talk to Nana Xanthi. She is an attorney and the executive director of the Black Alliance for justice immigration or. She's also the founder of the Community Legal Clinic and Transform Justice Center in legal these workshops as well as the founder of Justice Warriors Black Lives I. Hope you enjoy this conversation. Nana how are you today? I am well well, as can be expected in during these times and hoping you're well as well you know I am well despite everything, but one of the reasons that I'm grateful is because of the great work that women like you do in this country so excited to talk about the Black Alliance for just immigration, which is one of the organizations that the BG and wonder me a network which produces the BG podcast has been encouraging our audiences to support, so thank you. These organizations are critical in times like this. Thank you so very much? We appreciate that support and the support that we've gotten from black folks all over the globe. Appreciate it. Tell us a little bit more about the Black Alliance for just immigration, and what brought you to the organization? So the black lines for just immigration is a national black lead Immigration Rights Human Rights Racial Justice Organization. We are the largest of our kind in the United States. We educate we advocate. We organized on behalf of the. The roughly ten million Black Refugee and immigrant families in this country as well as black folks who are trying to come into the country, whether it be permanently or temporarily, and those who are seeking asylum. We have our headquarters in New York, but we also have offices in DC. Miami Atlanta Los Angeles and Oakland and we have staff in Houston, and in Minneapolis, so we pretty much are all over the place as well as doing work on the. Episode of the border in Mexico, at the northern border with Tijuana, and also we've been doing some work the southern border of Mexico in Chula where you have black asylum seekers coming to the United States through Mexico. In that way and the work that we do is national in many cases in terms of policy, and you know we've been very busy in that regard, especially in with this administration, we also do national work with respect to racial justice our. Former executive director open committee was one of the big three that started black lives matter, and so by has been involved in black lives matter since the beginning and we do that work, and then we also do local work regional work. I'm both on the policy side, but as well as more, and with even more vigor on the organizing side to make sure that we are pushing for racial. Economic and social justice with an right alongside our multigenerational African American siblings. So much work, such powerful work. As. You said you've been very busy with this administration echo, they're just keeping everyone busy with their foolishness, but I definitely do a suit top about Daca so for our listeners, who may not be familiar Dhaka's stands for deferred action for childhood arrivals and the Supreme. Court decision around Dhaka now allows immigrants who ever see Daca status sometimes referred to as dreamers so if you seen the Hashtag is sandwiched dreamers. That's what that means. It allows them. them to stay in the country safely without a threat of deportation, but one the things that we've been really seeing missing from mainstream conversation over Daca was that it also impacts not Hispanic and Latino communities that there are black and brown communities impacted by this as well other black communities that are impacted by this as well. So, what was your reaction when you hurt the decision? And what are our next steps in the Dreamer, movement so? It is really important in think I really WanNa, thank you for lifting up the fact that yes, there are dreamers who are not Brown folks. That are not Latin next folks. That are not black right that we have black Latino next folks as well as black dreamers from the continent of Africa from the Caribbean from Europe right we think about. Twenty, one savage right and how this came up? And he actually falls in the category that is equally as important that we need to advocate for a person who isn't a Dhaka recipient, but who happens to be undocumented, and obviously we're looking for permanent protections, not just for Dr Recipients because everyone. Coming to this country is dreaming. No one's coming to this country to be a nightmare. Faces are looking at the Supreme Court decision. I also happen to be an attorney of twenty six years. Doing movement work is it's a temporary relief. It is not the permanent protection that we want our people to have and that our people need to have in order to thrive, basically what the Supreme Court said is that the way that the administration got rid of Dhaka? Had No basis. They got rid of it that they have to have a reason. They have to show that they've thought about everything before. They come to that conclusion and they did not. And so, what does that mean? It means that just like the Muslim ban if you remember, the court ruled against the Supreme Court ruled against the administration on the Muslim ban, and said he pointed out what was wrong and. And so they just instituted a new Muslim bad adjusting themselves to what the court had pointed out, and that Muslim ban remains not struck down,

"Recklessly. You know by any danger to the community I mean it should. Folks should be that it that money bail required, but the problem that we have is is become so ingrained that that's the approach we take. We don't even question it. And what studies show is that if a person shows up for trial and they haven't had the opportunity. To talk to their attorney or more likely to be convicted. If they show up coming from jail, they are more likely to be convicted. They're all these things. There's just double down on the oppressive nature of justice. It comes down hard on people saintly because. They're poor and a lot of we said. They haven't even been. They haven't gone to trial yet. And for context like I mentioned, we handle a lot of low level misdemeanor offensive I, so perhaps you think that bill doesn't five that much, but I can literally us first hand that I have. Literally been charged prior to US making representations on the record that this amount should be lowered, but they're. They're bond or bail had been a hundred fifty dollars for a single driving with a suspended license ticket, and this person is you know potentially not working or is barely making above minimum wage, and is expected to be able to pay. That essentially becomes a beer litigating their case, because in some courts. The judges won't even allow you to come before them. If you have not posted your back, or you don't have the ability to post your day, so a lot of times, people are unrepresented. Only represented by. Counsel who they meet moments before they go in front of the judge, they still very scared. Even walk into court and their better because they know they don't have the money and they don't want to be locked up. I don't want to go on and on about this, but you also have to think about contract. Most Americans can't handle I mean there's been a press a lot. Let me most Americans can't handle dollar emergency. So have you suddenly find yourself lockup because you can't come up with seven hundred dollars or seven hundred fifty dollars, and let's say you were driving. Your car is now so do you may lose custody of your children. You have your your utility. All these sort of Ripley ramifications that come just because you got pulled out of your life. And locked up for you know arguably considerable time. and. You haven't even hatred in court, and it's all because an F. report, so want to look ahead at like two steps I think I want to talk about what is it that the bail project does and steps in and then I. Think my follow up. Question is GonNa be. What could we do differently from a referral perspective, so let's talk about the project I in the here and now and how it works, and how people can get involved in it I. Give a little bit of background, so the bill project is a national organization that has local offices, and so the Detroit. Detroit Justice Center host the local Office of Detroit build projects, and so there are people call bill disruptor who work in the office who do a fantastic job of literally being on the ground being responsive to people who needs to be bailed out of criteria, that's person have a bond less than five thousand dollars and not have holes in certain places, meaning other municipalities other. Say It, they. You have those holes. It's just a matter of. How can those things the address? Then? The bill also provides wrap around support to ensure that these people are able to actually get some court border. Border hearings because again, a lot of people don't not show up because they don't WanNa come. Sometimes, they don't have transportation. Though the bill even provide transportation and will provide reminder phone calls all these things to ensure that a person is actually able to participate in their court process, so in terms of participating mean a lot of people make donations to the bill projects or to DJ. See Your March for the bill project in terms of our local office, and then also you know the bill project works volunteers especially around Mother's Day, Father's day and other big opportunities for like Mama's Day. Day Bill out for father's Day. Bill out things like that. What could we do better like what is a better alternative long-term of course I'm GONNA put a link to all of this stuff in the show notes so that people can support and donate and do things like that, but looking at it from a systemic point of view getting into the weeds here, what could we do better? What do you think are good changes? The could be done here in Detroit Michigan and America. People could start off by loading for elected officials who recognize that Kaffir Bill is a flawed approach to. Face doesn't further community safety. It doubles down on math incarceration and there's a whole industry that's grown up around, and sometimes it appears that elected officials more sensitive to live in terms of bail bondsman than they are of the people who find themselves needing post bail, so being aware of the Political Stanford of elected officials who are concerned with gets is probably the most important i. Here's the thing that I'm thinking about is I'm thinking about the listener here who has so been used to the cash bail system, and so you're looking at it as we can abolish this, and this'll be a greater thing. We don't need to necessarily replace it with something else Herat. Judges have the expertise to make a determination, not using a Cessna tool or something that hasn't here racial bias because that's another problem that a lot of these risk assessment tools. By jurisdictions to try to move away from cash bail, actually have factors such it. Has This I ever associated with known criminals like they're very subjective broad factors that don't necessarily have any bearing a whether this person is, but a judge could. Out here we're. Cash bill is not at play. What type of film support you have in the community? Do you need any type of treatment or addiction? Support that would enable you to get your life back on track like there's so many better questions we could ask with regard to this issue of public safety than like. How much money do you have today to the put down, so we don't send you the jail. That's just not the right question. I really appreciate learning. Learning about this and being able to share that message with folks if people want to get in touch WANNA put money away all of that kind of stuff. What can they do? You can donate directly to the Justice Center and to the bail project I mean you can. You can donate directly to either of those programs and able to keep doing the work that we do, but bail. Fund is a revolving fund. So after the person shows up, the money goes back. Back into the funds, being used for the next person, so contributions help enlarge the fun so more people at once in benefit from it, and I'd also say from relief of more hands off approach if they're just getting familiar with kind of what criminal justice reform is I encourage you to follow our social media pages because again it's about learning. It's actually an unwinding of all the things we've been talking about. What they see looks like right, and so that's one of the. The things that he is really big on it re educating ourselves about what is best practice. What are the options and so I I? Welcome your listeners or the community at large suggests begin that process of thinking differently about east factor. Well, Aaron Keys. Eric Williams I really appreciate you spending so much time with US Today I. Hope that folks have learned something about something that they need to unlearn over the last bit and I really appreciate your time our pleasure. Thank you.
