Hillary loves a problem solver: someone who can not only point to what’s not working, but who will roll up their sleeves and fix it. In this episode, she talks to two leaders with a track record of doing exactly that. We hear from Compton, California mayor Aja Brown who cut unemployment and the homicide rate by half in her first term, and is now pioneering the largest guaranteed income program in the U.S. Then, Hillary sits down with Senator Amy Klobuchar for a no-holds-barred conversation about how to protect voting rights, reduce legislative gridlock, break up monopolies, and hold big tech accountable.
Mayor Aja Brown made history when she was elected at 31 as the youngest mayor to serve the City of Compton. Recently, Mayor Brown joined forces with mayoral leaders across the country who are committed to guaranteed income, leading the movement with the launch of the Compton Pledge.
Amy Klobuchar is the senior U.S. Senator from Minnesota. She serves as the chairwoman for the Senate Rules Committee and the Judiciary Subcommittee on Competition Policy, Antitrust, and Consumer Rights. Her new book is called Antitrust: Taking on Monopoly Power from the Gilded Age to the Digital Age.
