Kevin Cheng, the development manager of Brooklyn Community Bail Fund, joins us to talk about the $1M+ donations they received during the protests after George Floyd’s death, why they stopped taking donations, and how, in a just world, bail funds would cease to exist. Also this week: the rise of fascism around the world, from the Philippines to Hong Kong to Brazil to right here in the U.S.
