Should teams with Native American names, like the one in Washington DC, keep them? Native American activist and host of “Let’s Talk Native” John Kane says, “Perhaps, if only to demonstrate the blatant evidence of the racism that Washington D.C. — the nation’s capital — still holds toward Native people.” Kane joins me in our Syracuse studio.

Lawmakers in Albany authorized 20 new Family Court judgeships in the state budget, but have yet to determine where those judges will serve within the state. We discuss the issue with 2 guests, Denise Krondstadt of the Fund for Modern Courts & Co-Chair, NYS Coalition for More Family Court Judges and Stephanie Gendell, Associate Executive Director of the Citizens Committee for Children and the other co-chair of the NYS Coalition for More Family Judges.
