Breaking Through with Kristin Rowe-Finkbeiner (Powered by MomsRising)

This show starts our covering how the push for affordable, assessable early learning and childcare is gaining momentum as people realize that parents need safe, enriching places for their kids to be so they can work, and kids need high quality early learning so they can thrive.  Turns out it’s a win-win, boosting our families and our economy. So why aren’t all politicians stepping up yet.  Find out. Our next segment takes a close look at the impacts of racial profiling coupled with police brutality as we hear from mother’s who have lost sons — and what you can do about it.

Then in the next interview is with a very special guest, one of the originators of the hashtag that’s the rallying cry of a movement, #BlackLivesMatter.  Get the inside scoop on how it all began and what’s next.
Last but far from least, we talk taxes—and I promise you it won’t be a boring conversation.
