There’s a saying, “it costs a lot of money to be broke.” Georgetown law professor Peter Edelman agrees. His new book, “Not a Crime to Be Poor,” explores all the ways our systems nickles and dimes people below the poverty line — from a multitude of fees for minor infractions to evictions stemming from domestic violence calls. He joins guest host Courtney Collins to talk about his investigations of state and local government policies and his call for a renewed focus on social justice.
