We are so happy to share the link for a great conversation we had in late December 2020 with the fabulous folks behind the radio show "Beyond the Headlines" which airs Mondays weekly from 11:00am to 12:00p, EST on CIUT 89.5 fm.
You can find a recording of the radio broadcast here if you didn't catch it live!
Beyond The Headlines (BTH) is a nationally-syndicated, one-hour current affairs radio show and podcast. Housed within the Munk School of Global Affairs and Public Policy, our student producers aim to take listeners beyond the immediacy of our daily news, and provide a greater understanding of the various policy issues that make headlines. And of course, CIUT 89.5 fm is Toronto's preeminent listener supported public radio station.
We were honored to be invited to speak about RIttenhouse's work in community education, and about the movements for abolition, prison decarceration, defunding the police and community held Transformative Justice as critical strategies for addressing systemic racism & classism.
The radio segment includes BTH Junior Producer Faria Amin, Harm Reduction & Transformative Justice worker Michael Nurse, as well as Rittenhouse ED & TJ Facilitator Naty Tremblay.
