In John Lewis’ Honor: Restore the voting rights act

July 31, 2020

“Although the court did not deny that voter discrimination still exists, it gutted the most powerful tool this nation has ever had to stop discriminatory voting practices from becoming law. Those justices were never beaten or jailed for trying to register to vote. They have no friends who gave their lives for the right to […]


Children’s lives are too precious to risk reopening schools

July 24, 2020

“Common sense and intelligence can still determine what we do, even in this crazy environment. We’re not going to use our children as guinea pigs.” – New York Governor Andrew Cuomo Of the many questions the deadly coronavirus pandemic has forced the nation to confront, the question of whether to reopen schools is one of […]


Sports Have the Potential to Help Unite Us; Racial Slurs Must Go

July 17, 2020

“Racism runs rampant in towns and cities neighboring large Indigenous populations. I’ve been told to ‘go back to the reservation’ and asked by White people to search for their stolen items on the reservation. The drunken Indian trope permeates majority-White towns and cities where Natives live in poverty. Plains Indians have also faced slurs such […]

Congresswoman Maxine Waters’ (CA-43) statement on Donald Trump’s negligence in the fight against the coronavirus pandemic and his threats to protestors calling for the removal of statues of Confederate generals and slaveholders: “One would hope that the president of the United States would rise to the level of leadership that our country needs in confronting […]

With summer nearly upon us, we are all eager to experience the opportunities that make our community such a special place.

Investigate Not Just Ahmad’s Death, But the System That Let His Killers Escape

June 19, 2020

“The sad truth is that Ahmaud’s case isn’t unique at all. He is a representation of the ongoing level of distrust that a large part of our communities have in law enforcement and elected officials and the importance of placing reform like-minded people in office who will uphold the highest standards of the law for […]


Let’s Just Be Clear…

June 11, 2020

Eight minutes and Forty-Six seconds. In every generation there are seminal events that alter the outcomes of the future. As I reflect on the events of the last two weeks, I am struck by the instances of humanity and inhumanity that have been demonstrated for all to see. Although they join a, seemingly endless list […]


Do Not Stand Silently

June 4, 2020

Sixty years have passed since the Greensboro Four heroically sat down at a Woolworth’s lunch counter to stand up for what was right. And here we are still.
