Here's the Radio Boston rundown for June 18. Tiziana Dearing is our host.

  • DACA will continue after the Supreme Court rejected an effort by the Trump Administration to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program. We hear from a local DACA recipient and advocate who calls the ruling a 'temporary victory,' hear legal analysis, and take your calls.
  • Gov. Charlie Baker unveiled a new police reform bill Wednesday, in response to ongoing protests calling for changes. Are the proposed reforms the right approach? We ask Brock Satter, co-founder of Mass Action Against Police Brutality, and Dic Donohue, policy researcher at RAND Corporation, for their reactions.
  • Friday is "Juneteenth," and this year's commemoration has taken on increased significance amidst national protests over racism and police violence. We get a historical perspective from Kerri Greenidge, an assistant professor in the Department of Studies in Race, Colonialism, and Diaspora at Tufts University.

This program aired on June 18, 2020.
