The 21st Show

The 21st—Wednesday, June 10, 2020


An interview with state Sen. Elgie Sims, who’s long focused on criminal justice reform, about recent protests and calls to defund the police.

Then, we’ll talk to an independent organization that monitors conditions in Illinois prisons. They’re publishing an inmate survey on how COVID-19 is being handled in the Department of Corrections. 

And - some advice to the class of 2020 from virtual commencement ceremonies at colleges and universities around Illinois.
