- WSIP: MWF 9am Tracking Antigovernment Extremism with the Southern Poverty Law Center Under the Trump administration, hate, extremism, and white nationalism grew dramatically, but the insurrection at the nation’s Capitol seemed to signal something else.The Southern Poverty Law Center, which tracks the activity of hate groups, just released their annual Year in Hate and Extremism report for 2020, and this one features a three-part study of what’s being called anti government extremism. Our guest is Kate Bitz, a Program Manager and Trainer/Organizer with the Western States Center, which is affiliated with the Southern Poverty Law Center, and is an expert in tracking and countering white supremacy here in the Pacific Northwest.
- WSIP: MWF 4pm The GOP Civil War Comes to WA: The Senate voted to acquit Donald Trump, which has led to a civil war in the GOP, one that has reached our borders here in Washington in the form of Jaime Herrera Beutler and Loren Culp. We discuss the situation with Shasti Conrad (Chair of King County Democrats) and Will Casey (Left Wing Media).
- WSIP: TThS 9am Why WA Needs Progressive Taxation Now! Most progressives agree that the way that we do taxation in Washington State is fundamentally wrong. The burden falls on the people who can least afford it. The good news is, we may finally be taking some steps toward fixing that in this year’s legislative session. In this town hall, we’re joined by three of the state’s most prominent voices in the fight to make our state’s taxation fairer and more equitable: Misha Werschkul of the Washington State Budget & Policy Center, Treasure Mackley of Invest in Washington Now, and Sharonne Navas of the Equity in Education Coalition and All in For Washington. They explain why our tax system is the way it is, what can be done to change it–will a focus on current bills that are in play in this year’s legislature, and they detail how you can make a difference!
