    in Politics

    Coffee Party USA is pleased to offer as its September 2015 Book Club selection Healing the Heart of Democracy: The Courage to Create a Politics Worthy of the Human Spirit by Parker Palmer. We encourage everyone to read this very important book and then join us for a special Coffee Party Blogtalkradio conversation with Parker Palmer on Wednesday, September 30 at 8:30 PM Eastern. Healing the Heart of Democracy is an eloquent and empowering call for "We the People" to reclaim our democracy. This timely, courageous and practical work—intensely personal as well as political—is not about them, "those people" in Washington D.C., or in our state capitals, on whom we blame our political problems. It's about us, "We the People," and what we can do in everyday settings like families, neighborhoods, classrooms, congregations and workplaces to resist divide-and-conquer politics and restore a government "of the people, by the people, for the people."  Publishers Weekly, in a Starred Review, said "This beautifully written book deserves a wide audience that will benefit from discussing it." Here at Coffee Party, we want you to have the opportunity to do just that! Click here to buy the book on Amazon and support Coffee Party USA at the same time: Healing the Heart of Democracy: The Courage to Create a Politics Worthy of the Human Spirit. PARKER J. PALMER is a writer, teacher and activist and the founder and senior partner of the Center for Courage & Renewal. He holds a Ph.D. in sociology from the University of California at Berkeley, as well as eleven honorary doctorates, two Distinguished Achievement Awards from the National Educational Press Association, and an Award of Excellence from the Associated Church Press. So read this wonderful book and join us on Wednesday, September 30 at 8:30 PM Eastern with a conversation with Parker Palmer.

    Social Justice in United States of America: Part 4

    in Current Events

    The concept of social justice involves finding the optimum balance between responsibilities as a society and responsibilities as individuals to contribute to a just society. Some scholars have documented that oppression is often allowed to occur in group settings because group members’ privilege is left unchecked and unchallenged. A number of people believe attention to social justice concerns is not within their roles so they do not address issues of member oppression and marginalization . The lack of attention to group members’ diversity is often re-traumatizing to those who have survived socio-cultural oppression.“Oppression”, in this text refers to‘a state of domination where the oppressed suffer the consequences of deprivation, exclusion, discrimination, exploitation, control of culture, and violence. 

    The United Nations has addressed “human rights” on an international scale and acknowledges that in a number of nations, ”indigenous people” who are entitled to the full protection of the individual human rights system, have their rights violated and often experience poverty and disadvantage to a greater extent than the rest of the population. The United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous People recognize the difficulty in realizing human rights for Indigenous people who have been disadvantaged on a systemic level by historical discrimination and dispossession over past centuries; however, there has never been such an assessment of the condition of the Black American in the United States of America.
