Bonus Episode | Shutdowns, Refund Checks and SNAP

Bonus episode to explain why certain federal employees are working and getting paid, while others are working and don’t know when they will receive a paycheck. I also talk about why the workers that process tax refunds should NOT be called back into work and if this shutdown continues, families will not receive their SNAP benefits.

Bonus Episode | IT'S ABOUT TIME! Anti-Lynching Law + Abrams Files Suit

Short, bonus episode that provides important updates to Episodes 4 and 7/9. The Senate FINALLY passes the Anti-Lynching statute (it’s still not law yet, though) and Stacey Abrams delivers the lawsuit she promised focusing on Georgia’s horrible electoral process.

For the year-end guide to reflect on 2018, check out our Bar Raising Memo.
