‘ON THE GROUND’ SHOW FOR AUGUST 12, 2022: The Inflation Reduction Act, Climate, Environmental Justice and Black Farmers, Plus Headlines

While Democrats claim the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022 as a win, activists are left to assess all that was cut that would have addressed human rights, human needs and a livable planet. I speak to On the Ground’s environmental justice contributor Michele Roberts. And what does this pending law hold for Black Farmers? John Boyd of the National Black Farmers Association gives his take. Plus headlines.
