We also have activist and community organizer MegMantis here to discuss the danger of privatizing public services, such as Chicago’s disastrous for-profit CTA fare card system, Ventra.

We’ll also discuss how activist the Reverend Billy Talen faces up to a year in prison for protesting Chase’s anti-climate funding.
