On this very special episode of Soul of the Nation, Rev. Jim Wallis talks with ice cream entrepreneur and social justice advocate Ben Cohen (of Ben and Jerry's) about ending the systemic violence committed by police across the United States against communities of color.

Cohen advocates for the end of qualified immunity for police and the demilitarization of police forces across the country.

“We, the taxpayers, are paying these police departments to hire consultants that come in--former military--that do these seminars with police called ‘warrior training,’” says Cohen. “And in that training, the police are encouraged to see the people they're policing as the enemy, and they're encouraged to be able to kill.”
