The first half of this week's show focuses on Driving While Black. We use statistics that suggest that Black motorists are more likely to get pulled over by police and exactly what that means to Black individuals as well as Black communities.
The second part of the show focuses on the passing of the CROWN Act by the House of Representatives. This bill protects traditionally Black hairstyles from discrimination...we discuss how important it is and what it means to us personally.

About Civic Cipher
Civic Cipher is a weekly radio show hosted by Ramses Ja and Q. Ward. This show is dedicated to empowering Black and Brown voices, allowing them to engage directly with their communities as well as the general population. Self-determination is critical to securing a future free of oppressive systems, and Civic Cipher exists to facilitate discussions toward this end. Furthermore, Civic Cipher seeks to inform non-POC allies who may not be privy to these types of discussions and optics. Finally, Civic Cipher seeks to provide long-form conversations in spaces where there is often a lack of significant resources, potent dialogue, or the necessary engagement for facilitating a healthy and productive civil discourse.
