Chris and Jesse are joined by special guest, Sam Sinyangwe, co-founder of We The Protestors, an organization building a scalable digital infrastructure to advance policy solutions at every level of government to end police violence. Sam will be the keynote speaker at the 2020 John Hope Franklin Center for Reconciliation National (Virtual) Symposium, this year's theme being "Reconciliation and Technology: Neutral Resources for Social Good." This is a topic at the heart of Sam's work and his passion is evident as he discusses how difficult collecting data on difficult topics can be, enabling those trying to make change, and how to use these tools to end over-policing, restrict the use of force, and strengthen community oversight.
