    Our Viral Lives: Young Activists Discuss HIV/AIDS

    in LGBT

    Unfortunately, some people believe that HIV/AIDS is over. Many of us know better. While the leaders of the early movement are very visibile to some -- names like Peter Staley and Mark Harrington come to mind -- some are unsure about who will be leading the movement of tomorrow. More importantly, what will the HIV/AIDS epidemic look like in the future? Today, we will speak with four young activists who recently presented at New York City's LGBT Center about their work as young HIV/AIDS activists. We will talk with Kyle Bella, the founder of Our Viral Lives, a digital narrative project, Martez Smith, an HIV+ black public health student, Kia Labeija an artist and photographer and a part of New York City's famed House of Labeija and Charlie Ferrusi, an MPH student who hopes to enter the world of government work and make advocacy for underrepresented populations his focus.

    Should The Community Pay A Salary To Its Full Time Political Activists?

    in Women

    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?

    SATURDAY WAKE UP CALL - A Season for Love and Imagination

    in Spirituality

    What world do you dream of? How are you using your imagination?


    When the POWER OF LOVE
    overcomes the LOVE OF POWER
    the world will know PEACE. ~Jimi Hendrix


    We have been participating in the SEASON FOR NONVIOLENCE: a 64 day campaign, co-founded in 1998 by Dr. Arun Gandhi and The Association for Global New Thought (AGNT), spanning the January 30th and April 4th memorial anniversaries of Mahatma Gandhi and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. 


    Suddenly, I realized that I don't want a season for nonviolence; I WANT A SEASON OF PEACE -- A SEASON OF LOVE -- A SEASON FOR A NEW VISION.

    Activists Take Politicians To Court To Sue For Justice

    in Women

    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?
