This week on Behind The Lens: Protesters block access to courts and force City Hall to lock its doors in an anti-eviction demonstration. An appointment at the Mayor’s Office raises eye brows among housing advocates. We talk with data analyst Jeff Asher about racial disparities in law enforcement and the COVID-19 crisis. And we hear from sanitation workers, now in their third month of a labor strike in New Orleans. Their demands: safety and dignity.

Behind The Lens is available on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Google Play and Stitcher. And we broadcast the show on community radio stations 102.3 FM WHIV LP in Mid-City and 90.3 FM WAMF-LP in the Marigny.
