Dr. Abdul El-Sayed, 33, is running for governor of Michigan on a campaign of creating a single-payer health care system, raising the minimum wage to $15, legalizing marijuana, and a sweeping overhaul of the state’s criminal justice system.

As the internment of immigrant families continues, we revisit Scahill's 2017 conversation with educator and organizer Mariame Kaba.
