Where do police foundations get so much money from? According to Color of Change’s groundbreaking report released last month, 55 Fortune 500 companies donate to police foundations, a backdoor through which corporate interests can protect power, property and privilege at the expense of democracy and Black lives.

The two also discuss what’s next for #StopCopCity in Atlanta.
