Earlier this month, three thousand people who call themselves Juggalo’s descended on DC to march, protest and listen to music in spite of the FBI labeling them a gang. Lucy joins the podcast today to tell about what she saw, explain the free speech debate around the event and also chatter about recent happenings with Young Voices Advocates.
Illinois Senate has passed a resolution to label white nationalism and neo-Nazism as threats, with the potential to be catalysts for domestic terrorism.
