Ep. 32: Rebellion PAC x TYT Army GA

Aja meets with Brianna Wu, executive director of RebellionPAC, and Zain Lilani, field coordinator of RebellionPAC and volunteer captain of The Young Turks Army in Georgia. The three discuss the purpose of the newly founded PAC in support of progressive candidates in the U.S., how Rebellion and TYT Army are working in support of Democratic Georgia candidates in the Senate runoffs, and the importance of hyper-localized journalism when covering issues such as police brutality, city government, and policy. Aja delivers her response to Atlanta City Council’s decision to fund a new private police force in Buckhead in response to the shooting and death of 7-year-old Kennedy Maxie last month.
