First, domestic violence. Rosemonde Pierre-Louis, appointed by New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio as the Commissioner of the Mayor’s Office to Combat Domestic Violence (OCDV) in January, joins us to discuss the spectrum of domestic violence and how victims can get help.

Then, in our Public Intellectual segment where we look at new research that has the power to change minds and public policy, post traumatic stress disorder. PTSD in violent neighborhoods has been found at rates comparable to the military veteran community, research shows. ProPublica journalist, Lois Beckett is here to discuss.

Next, many say one hurdle in addressing unemployment is the "skills gap," in which even those with a college degree don't necessarily have the skills demanded for employment. Joining us on this, Kathryn S. Wylde, president & CEO of Partnership for NYC and Julian Alssid, chief workforce strategist at College for America.

Finally, a modern - and very graphic - take on anti-Chinese an anti-Asian racism. John Kuo Wei Tchen and Dylan Yeats give us a visual tour of their book, Yellow Peril!
