Today’s episode sees us reviewing the major topics we have discussed this year on Civic Cipher. Some of the subjects we revisit for the first half include an episode from January where we ask Why Black People vote Democrat, as well as the Will Smith and Chris Rock Oscars slap from April, and a topic from May where we ask the question, Do Police Make us Safer?
The second half we review episodes from the latter part of 2022 including a discussion about Uvalde, Reparations, Midterm elections, and voter suppression. We also spotlight the Bank Black initiative.

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.
