Call in to speak with the host

The act provides some $660 million in funding over five years for programs ranging from protecting victims of domestic violence and community violence prevention to legal aid for survivors of violence. With the fiscal cliff looming, congress seeks drastic cuts to the program. This would prove detrimental to African American families, as African Americans are 3x likely to suffer domestic abuse, depression, and other mental illnesses related to violence against women. This episode we'll explore..Congress' dirty little secret to avoid taxing the rich, as well as take a look at how mental illness/violence is impacting our community, and it's political connotations.
