Today we are visited by Adonijah Taylor...a first grade graduate and our baby boy. We have a heavy conversation about school shootings and explain the world he lives in to him. We obviously spend a considerable amount of time discussing the tragedy in Uvalde, TX at Robb Elementary School.
In the second half of the show, we detail some other shootings and try to make sense of the problem by discussing what can be done with guns. We also pay special attention to the fact that May is Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month and dedicate the Way Black History Fact to it.

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.
