Yesterday, Gov. Tony Evers called for a special legislative session on police reform in response to the police shooting of Jacob Blake in Kenosha on Sunday. For today’s show, we speak with Rep. David Bowen and Rep. Shelia Stubbs, both members of the Wisconsin Legislative Black Caucus, about the special session and other vital issues they have been working on this summer.
“We cannot afford to have another incident happen again,” says Rep. Shelia Stubbs in reference to Sunday’s shooting. “I’m saying: Please help us. Join us in this effort. Call your Republican leaders and ask them to join us.”
