Meaghan Mobbs joins She Thinks podcast to discuss this month’s policy focus: Crime Affects American Communities and Safety. We look at the data on crime and talk about why the surge in carjackings and murder rates cannot be ignored. We also consider how women, who feel particularly vulnerable, have grappled with the aftermath of the “defund the police” movement. And finally, we discuss what can be done to help build back safer, stronger communities.
