On February 12, 1968, 1300 black sanitation workers in Memphis, Tennessee walked off their jobs in protest, citing years of mistreatment, unsafe and life threatening working conditions, poverty level wages, and their desire to organize under a union to secure a better work environment. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was enlisted to advance the workers cause, and he rallied them behind the “I Am a Man” declaration and speech. Sadly, it was during his participation in this action that the Reverend King was assassinated, in Memphis, on April 4, 1968. The last speech of his life, known as “I’ve Been to the Mountaintop,” had been delivered only the night before to an audience of striking sanitation workers and their supporters.
Fast forward exactly 45 years, to February 12, 2013. On this date, 12 black and Latino supervisory personnel with the NYC Department of Sanitation filed a class action lawsuit alleging that a culture of racism exists within their work environment in which they were denied promotions solely on the basis of their race.
Join us at the Clarkie Connection to hear the riveting accounts of these workers as they present the facts of their case, tell us the significance of their filing date, inform us on the status of their lawsuit, and share what we in the community who support their cause can do to help.

VA Secretary Eric Shinseki resigns. Will this make the Department of Veterans Affairs better ? Will this have any long term impact at all. No, this only matters in the world of politics. No one is talking about any real long term plans to make the VA better. There has been many problems with the VA for many years. The government is just not capable of giving vets the care they need. They have shown this time and time again. We just can't keep waiting on the government as they keep trying to get it right. 10 years from now I'm sure we will be talking about the problems with the VA. They are only two ways to make the VA better.
Number 1 - Do not tie down the vets to VA hospitals for care. Vets should be able to go to any hospital , any doctor at any time. And this should not costs the Vets any extra money. This should have always been the way the VA worked.
Number 2 - Fire everyone at the Department of Veterans Affairs. Staff the VA hospitals with military personnel. Make the VA a division of the Department of Defense. This would streamlined paperwork and processing time.
I think these are the only two options. I don't think anything else will make any difference.
