About this Episode

How have different circumstances prescribed different definitions of organization and what is the recipe for justice today? In Episode 2, Junius and Francesca are joined by Detroit Will Breathe organizer Praveen Loganathan to talk about the tactics used by organizers today to keep people engaged and governments accountable.

Detroit Will Breathe is an integrated, youth-led, militant organization fighting against police brutality and systemic racism in Detroit that formed during the nationwide protests of George Floyd, Breanna Taylor, and Ahmaud Aubrey. Praveen is also a representative with the Coalition of Policy Transparency and Accountability (CPTA) who formed after the killing of Hakim Littleton in July 2020 by the Detroit Police Department. The mission of CPTA is to expose police misconduct in all forms and demand police transparency and accountability.
