Today we hear from Professor Stephany Rose Spaulding, founder of Truth and Conciliation, a non-profit that fights systemic racism, and from Nick Mitchell, who was Denver's Independent Monitor for eight years. They talk about the continuing work to create police accountability and reform and the ongoing effort to end systemic racism following the guilty verdict in the trial of Derek Chauvin for the death of George Floyd.
