Podcast: Workforce Automation and Its Impact on Communities of Color | Spencer Overton and Malcom Glenn

Produced by the National Urban League, For The Movement is a weekly podcast that discusses persistent policy, civil rights and social issues related to African Americans and communities of color. From attempts to label Black activists as extremists, to the next generation of tech innovators, we will deliver relevant news and information from inside the Movement and Washington. The good, bad, and everything in between. We’re not journalists. We’re not policy wonks. We’re advocates who care. We do this for the Movement.
