MOVING FORWARD: Overdose Preventions Centers, AOC on Venezuela, City Lobbyists, and Global AI Summit

This week on Moving Forward, the Young Voices radio show, we hear from contributors Rachel Johnson, Erik Suarez, Caroline Welton, and Alex Petropoulos.

Addressing drug abuse requires more than just prohibition. Rachel Johnson explains why the U.S. should follow Glasgow's lead and remove barriers to overdose prevention centers.

AOC has been vocal lately about removing economic sanctions against Venezuela. Erik Suarez grew up in Venezuela and tells us what AOC needs to understand.

How would you react to your municipal officials using taxpayer money to hire lobbyists for your city? Caroline Welton explains the reality of this practice in Austin, Texas.

With a global AI summit taking place in London, it would be a good idea for these global leaders to make room at the table for China. Alex Petropoulos lays out why China's participation matters.
