The Igniting Change Radio Show on Tuesday, March 14th, 2023, from 12:00 PM – 1:00 PM Eastern Time, entitled “Building a Framework for Justice: Holding Police Accountable, Fighting Anti-Black Policies in Florida, and the upcoming March 29th – April 2nd Houston HBCU All Stars Edition Gen Z and Millennial Votes Matter Training” will feature Radio Show Co-Hosts and Transformative Justice Coalition (TJC) Co-Leaders Attorneys Barbara Arnwine, Esq. and Daryl Jones, Esq. and special guests Tony Hill and Lonita Baker, Esq. The first two segments will feature guest Attorney Lonita Baker, President of the National Bar Association and Attorney for the Breonna Taylor Family, and will discuss the scathing 90-page report of the US Department of Justice, released on March 8th, 2023, on the Louisville, Kentucky Metro Police Department and Louisville/Jefferson County Metro Government which found that these entities engaged in a pattern or practice of conduct that violates the U.S. Constitution and federal law. The report includes 36 recommended remedial measures and they found that the Louisville Metro and LMPD unlawful practices harms community members and undermines public safety. The DOJ committed to working with the police department, the city, police leaders, and the community to stop the unlawful practices and abuses. This investigation was sparked by the police killing of Breonna Taylor in 2020. Read the full report here: https://www.justice.gov/opa/press-release/file/1573011/download

The third segment of the show will feature guest Florida Community Organizer Tony Hill to discuss the latest anti-Black proposed legislation in the Florida State Legislature. Specifically, we will discuss Florida Bill 999 which would ban diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) from Florida college curriculums which advanced in the Florida State House last week, despite tremendous public opposition. DeSantis has categorized such programs as a far-left dogma and likened such programs to the CCP [Chinese Communist Party]. “Upon completion of the review, the board may ‘provide direction to each constituent university to remove from its programs any major or minor that is based on or otherwise utilizes pedagogical methodology associated with Critical Theory, including, but not limited to, Critical Race Theory, Critical Race Studies, Critical Ethnic Studies, Radical Feminist Theory, Radical Gender Theory, Queer Theory, Critical Social Justice, or Intersectionality, as defined in Board of Governors regulation.’…The bill says any Florida college system institution, state university or directly supported organization may not expend any state or federal funds to promote, support or maintain any programs or campus activities ‘that advocate for diversity, equity and inclusion,’ ‘promote or engage in political activism,’ or espouse ‘preferential treatment or special benefits to individuals on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex, disability, or religion.’…” Igniting Change will also discuss the Juneteenth mobilization National March on Florida for Truth and other ways in which people are organizing to oppose Florida’s clampdown on “wokeness”, book banning, and attempted shut down of DEI. This segment will also discuss the in-person Gen Z and Millennial Votes matter Leadership Training being held in Houston, March 29th – April 2nd, 2023.
During the last segment of the show, Co-hosts Arnwine and Jones will discuss the 16 East Cleveland police officers indicted on civil rights violations after multiple videos since 2020 captured shocking brutality and coverups and will continue the discussions on policing restructuring, Juneteenth, and the Houston Gen Z and Millennial Votes Matter Training.
