‘ON THE GROUND’ SHOW FOR MARCH 10, 2023: Congress and Biden Block DC’s Updated Criminal Code… For Women’s History Month: Interview with Black Sandinista Leader and Lawmaker… Plus Headlines

As Congress votes to block DC’s democratically approved new criminal code, the nation’s capital is the latest example of a black and brown-majority city in the United States being stripped of self-rule and democratic rights. Also, for a Women’s History Month special, we speak to Congresswoman Loria Raquel Dixon Brautigam, a woman of African descent and Sandinista leader, who is the first secretary of the national assembly of Nicaragua. 

The show is made possible only by our volunteer energy, our resolve to keep the people’s voices on the air, and by support from our listeners. In this new era of fake corporate news, we have to be and support our own media! Please click here or click on the Support-Donate tab on this website to subscribe for as little as $3 a month.
