Abolish the Police and Defund the Police are two phrases that have gained significant traction in the past few months. But, what exactly do they mean? 

On this episode Mariah Parker, an Athens-Clarke County Commissioner and abolitionist, talks about the history of police abolition, her journey to becoming an abolitionist and her 50/10 Plan to Reimagine Public Safety budget proposal. We also talk about the difference between police abolition and defunding the police. Mariah also tells us about her own podcast, Waiting on Reparations.

This episode's Who's that Lady (from History)? is Simone Weil.
