Issues Confronting St. Louis in 2017
What is meant by "community building" and what does it have to do with crime?
Host Don Fitz and guest Johnathan McFarland, who is the Green Party Candidate for Mayor of St. Louis, discuss causes of crime, including the criminalization of drugs like marijuana and heroin, along with use of body cameras by police and gun control. They explore economic issues such as the use of Tax Increment Financing (TIFs) by the City, a $15 per hour minimum wage, loan accessibility for first time home buyers and jobs and unions.
Fitz and McFarland will also look at what schools could do to reflect the African American experience and how City policy could reflect needs of people who live in the City.
