7pm - Represent NYC: Can the Trump Administration be both Anti-Semitic and Pro-Israel?
From offensive comments about the Holocaust to hiring advisors accused of being Anti-Semites, the Trump administration is under heavy fire for their actions.
This Sunday on “Represent NYC,” Lincoln Mitchell, political analyst and author of “The Democracy Promotion Paradox,” talks with Rabbi Josh Weinberg, President of the Association of Reform Zionists of America, and Marisa Fox, writer for the Israeli newspaper Haaretz, about Trump’s attitude toward American Jews and how he’s handling our country’s complicated relationship with Israel.

8pm - The Radical Imagination: Imagining Left Forum 2017 - Can the Left Get Together?
Last year’s election exposed the massive divide that exists in our country, not just across party lines but within parties themselves.

9pm - Both Sides of the Bars: Transforming Lives through Entrepreneurship
Getting a job after being incarcerated is extremely difficult and the National Institute for Justice says that 60 to 70 percent of ex-offenders are jobless for the first year after release. How can we make finding employment easier for these people?
This Sunday on The Fortune Society’s “Both Sides of the Bars,” Host Ronald Day talks with Joe Robinson and Ralphy Dominguez, two formerly incarcerated men turned entrepreneurs, about their respective businesses and why entrepreneurship can be a successful path for others with a criminal record.
Joe Robinson is the Director of Strategic Partnerships at When People Work and the founder of Life Navigation Systems, LLC. He is also the co-author of “Think Outside the Cell: An Entrepreneur’s Guide for the Incarcerated and Formerly Incarcerated.” The book also inspired the Think Outside the Cell Foundation. Ralphy Dominguez is the Founder, CEO and Creative Director for PEN and PISTOL, a leather accessories line that uses repurposed materials.
The Fortune Society’s “Both Sides of the Bars” airs this Sunday at 9:30pm on MNN1 (Spectrum 34 & 1995, RCN 82, FiOS 33) and MNN’s HD Community Channel (Spectrum 1993) or streaming live on mnn.org.
