SORT BY Relevancy
in Self Help
This week, Laura Murphy, Director of the Washington Legislative Office for the American Civil Liberties Union.
Ms. Murphy grew up in a politically active family that advocated citizen action. After campaigning, working on Capitol Hill, lending her talents to several elected officials, working for several different ACLU offices, she was offered the position of Director of the Washington Legislative office in 1993 and was the first woman, African America, and has been the longest serving Director of the DC Legislative Office.
Almost 46,000 individuals are behind bars for non-violent drug offenses and can now apply for clemency. While there is a strong libertarian movement questioning the war on drugs, many state legislatures grapple with the budgetary implications of an expanding prison population. Furthermore, many religious movements are advocating redemption. There are also those who express concern that that the application of justice with respect to the war on drugs comes down with disparate representation regarding minority groups.
Ms. Murhpy’s observed major changes in the Republican Party since 2008. Whereas the the party once ostracized members who challenged party orthodoxy, it now seemingly welcomes more dissent under the big tent. The Democrats, Ms. Murphy observers, have some serious hawkish elements.
Lately, the ACLU has been at the forefront of the battle against the unprecedented surveillance by government agencies like the NSA, the use of torture by the CIA, and overreach by law enforcement agencies.
Join us as we welcome Goddess Freedom Fighter Cece Mcdonald & Chase Strangio of the ACLU to the show. Chase has been heavily involved with the Monica Jones case in Arizona as well as helping myself handle some discrimanatory issues back here on the east coast.

Doing What's Right: Today I am asking for a little help for some friends. Nadi and Rose Qamar lost their house in a fire on March 28th. Nadi is 98 and has been a musician for nearly all of that time. Rose is very active in the right to life movement and their community. They lost everything but their lives and the clotheson their backs. The insurance will not cover the rebuilding, much less the replacement of their stuff. A friend of theirs has set up a GoFundMe account.
