Listen: NYCLU Update


Back in April, the IRS sent stimulus checks to incarcerated people. Later, the IRS decided people in prison shouldn’t be getting checks. Last week, a federal judge ordered them to reverse that reversal. Erika Lorshbough, Deputy Policy Director for the NYCLU, explains all of the twists, turns, and implications of this confusing story. Plus, the NYCLU’s recent suit over its brutal crackdown on BLM protesters this spring, and we talk about an old issue that has become a big talking point in the current election: NY bail reform.
