Protests against police violence and racial injustice have continued in Columbus and around the country since late May.
Some demonstrators are calling for the police to be reformed, while others want the departments defunded or even abolished. But who writes the new rules? Who are the demonstrators and who speaks for them?
Today on All Sides with Ann Fisher, we discuss who speaks for protesters on the street and in the halls of government.
