Maryland Senator Ben Cardin joins us to talk about the youth movement against gun violence, Russian sanctions, and more. D.C. Councilmember Mary Cheh shares her thoughts on relief for high water bills and news that D.C. Public Schools is taking over an all girls charter school.
Guest Host: Jonathan Capehart
The local “free-range” parents who allowed their young children to walk home from the park alone were cleared of all charges by Child Protective Services earlier this summer. But for Danielle Meitiv, the mother of then six-year-old Dvora and ten-year-old Rafi, the fight is far from over. She plans to sue Montgomery County Health and Human Services and police over the ordeal and is just beginning her advocacy in support of the free-range parenting movement. We talk with her about why she sees her family’s experience as an opportunity to change national attitudes on parenting.
