The Tampa 5, female protesters arrested at USF, will not face trial but have agreed to community service as part of a year-long diversion program. Why did the police escalate the physical contact if there is a right to protest? Was there a free-speech zone? In South Florida, Broward County, some high-school students staged a walk-out. The walkout took place a day after five school staffers, including the principal, were reassigned for reportedly allowing a trans student on the girls volleyball team. The youth are pushing back against right-wing attempts to roll back progress on diversity, equity and inclusion.
Callers share their concerns and ideas to stand up for your rights and for progress.
