‘ON THE GROUND’ SHOW FOR MARCH 12, 2021: Youth Climate Activists Take Lawsuit Against Feds to Supreme Court… Police Reform Thwarted in Maryland… Headlines on COVID Relief Package and More…

As the trial of former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin gets under way for the murder of George Floyd last May, efforts at police reform legislation are floundering, including here in the DMV. We speak to activist Jonathan Hutto. And young people suing the U.S. federal government for its role in climate change take their case to the Supreme Court.

Plus headlines on COVID relief legislation, International Women’s Day, the loss of affordable housing in DC, Julian Assange Mumia Abu-Jamal and case of journalist jailed in Iowa for covering Black Lives Matter.
