The Peoples Budget Priorities - 2020 Libros Schmibros Summer Fellowship Program

During the second week of our Summer Fellowship Program, we looked at the LA city budget and spoke with Black Lives Matter activist La Mikia Castillo about the proposed People’s Budget, which reflects demands to restructure the city’s budget priorities. We also covered issues of corruption in the city of Bell and in the LA County Sheriff’s department.
