SORT BY Relevancy
Organizing voter registration drives, holding mass meetings, raising funds, contacting the media, passing out literature, even sending out mass e-mails in order to organize people for mass political action, requires the time and resources to work without the pressure of wondering how ones bills will be paid. These are activities necessary to change conditions for a community, and yet, the activists who make things happen are often stuggling to survive themselves, which makes it unlikely that efforts will be successful to change conditions for those who most need a change. Why do we expect activists to volunteer their time and work for free, when those who are in control of government resources get paid a handsome salary to live comfortably while they maintain the status quo? Should there be a fund that community members pay into which would support acticvist who lobby and organize for better conditions for the people? Or are such organizations already in existence, but merely need more financial contributions form those they consistently help? How do we change the thinking of those who are in need of better public service so that they understand "freedom ain't free"? Which organizations do people trust enough to invest enough money into that can hire those who are dedicated to working for better conditions for all? The Urban League? The NAACP? The National Action Network? The Rainbow PUSH Coalition? Your local block club? Your own religious organization? Or something else? Would you help pay the salary for full time political activists who work for your interests?

A group of Chicago activists are organizing a trip to downstate Illinois to challenge the criminal justice system that continues to hold behind prison walls the well known community organizer Rev. Charles Koen. These activists are also challenging in court the validity of the upcoming city elections, based on a recent remap of the city's wards that seems to purposely reduce African American representation. While the court system in America seems terribly flawed when it comes to equal justice under the law, litigation seems to still be an effective weapon to use to fight injustice. Will certain judges deemed to be unjust in their decisions be voted out of office in the next election? Will political prisoners be pardoned if it is determined they received an unfair trial? Will Chicago's elected officials be forced to redraw the city ward map to increase African American and Hispanic representation? Will those whose family members have been the victims of wrongful death at the hands of law enforcement officiers be able to organize a class action suit against the government for Civil Rights violations? How much justice can we expect to come from America's legal system?
Todays show will focus on different civil rights activists and activists groups. Are they a part of the solution or the problem. What are they doing for our communities? What should they be doing and aren't?? What changes do you as the community think we need and what are ;your ideas for making those changes?? It's time to stop talking about and start being about it.....

Parents who advocate for education reform may sometimes find themselves at odds with school administrators, some of whom parent activists may be blaming for low student academic performance. When a parent dares to speak out against what the parent believes are harmful policies or practices in the school, does that parent and that parent's child get targeted for retaliation by school officials. Bogan High School LSC Parent Leader Reva Brown shares her story and raises questions about the rights of parents to stand up to school officials when they believe their children are being deliberately denied a good education.
