Chanel Miller
Chanel Miller first went viral as Emily Doe, when anonymously testifying in court against Brock Turner for sexual assault. Her memoir “Know My Name” came out of this testimony, arriving at a widespread moment of reckoning with the institutionalized normalization of sexual assault on college campuses. Reclaiming her name, and positioning herself centrally as a survivor, the book exposes a culture biased to protect perpetrators, indicting a criminal justice system designed to fail the most vulnerable, and remaining infused with Miller’s courage, humor and hope. Miller is a 2019 Time Next 100 honoree and a 2016 Glamour Woman of the Year honoree under her pseudonym, “Emily Doe.”

Election 2020: Prop 21 Brings Back Another Attempt to Expand Rent Control
Advocates of expanding rent control in California are back this year with Proposition 21, two years after voters turned down a similar ballot measure. Prop. 21 would allow cities to put limits on how much landlords can annually increase housing rents. The measure would also allow cities to bring single-family homes under rent control. In 2019, the California legislature established a statewide rent cap of 5 percent plus inflation on buildings that are at least 15 years old. We look at both sides of the debate on Prop. 21 and what it would do compared with existing laws.

Election 2020: Measure RR Would Fund Caltrain with Sales Tax
Facing a pandemic-induced plunge in ridership and ticket sales, Caltrain is asking voters in San Francisco, San Mateo and Santa Clara counties for a lifeline this November.

The Takeaway
Evangelical Voters
White evangelicals make up about one quarter of the U.S. electorate, and in 2016’s election, 80% of white evangelical voters backed President Trump. But in 2020, that figure seems to be slipping, according to the most recent data. A number of prominent Evangelical leaders are stepping forward to support Biden, and despite Trump’s nomination of Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court, other issues are complicating the vote for many. Top of that list: the president’s COVID response. The Takeaway talks to three people about the powerful evangelical vote in the U.S. today, the issues affecting it and the divides within it.
