On today's show, we are joined by city council candidate for Phoenix's district 6 Harry Curtin. We spend the first half of the show discussing the importance of local government and citizen engagement. We also examine the scope of work at different levels of local government.
In the second half of the show, we discuss some of Harry Curtin's policies and ideas that will work in Phoenix and around the country. We provide an important examination of policing and what the future of policing might look like. Our Way Black History Fact is dedicated to Benjamin Banneker.

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.
