After the killing of George Floyd by police officers, California saw weeks and weeks of protests and calls for more stringent police oversight. 

Some of those calls to actions became bills in the California state legislature. Now that legislative season has ended, which of those bills has made it to the governor’s desk and in what form? 

Plus, we sit down with the co-founder of the Los Angeles chapter of Black Lives Matter to hear her thoughts on whether the measures still alive are what the movement wanted, whether they go far enough and where she’d like to see policy go from here.

Guests:

Anita Chabria, Sacramento-based reporter for the L.A. Times, where she covers California state politics and policy; she tweets @anitachabria

Melina Abdullah, co-founder of the Los Angeles chapter of Black Lives Matter and professor of Pan-African studies at Cal State LA; she tweets @DocMellyMel
