  • Betrayal of Leadership: Which Elected Officials Need to Be Targeted For Defeat?

    in Women

    This weekend's mass gathering is an opportunity for organizing on a grand scale. Voter registration should be a top priority, with the intention of voting out of office those elected officials who have betrayed the public's trust. Who are they? Have we been keeping track of voting records in City Council, the State Legislature, the Congress, the Senate? Have we been paying attention to decisions by judges and actions of State's Attorneys? Have our civic organizations been diligent in tallying up the numbers of registered voters, unregistered voters, and the numbers of votes needed to elect a candidate? Have community leaders stepped forward to run for office and replace those we no longer want to serve in those capacities? Unless we use this time wisely, the gathering of an estimated two million people will be just another neighborhood rally, and we'll go back home just as powerless as before, with a bit less money than we had. So who do we really need to seriously plan to defeat in the next election?

    Grace Lee Boggs dead at 100

    in Politics

    Michelle and I were saddened to hear of the passing of author, philosopher, and activist Grace Lee Boggs. Grace dedicated her life to serving and advocating for the rights of others – from her community activism in Detroit, to her leadership in the civil rights movement, to her ideas that challenged us all to lead meaningful lives. As the child of Chinese immigrants and as a woman, Grace learned early on that the world needed changing, and she overcame barriers to do just that. She understood the power of community organizing at its core – the importance of bringing about change and getting people involved to shape their own destiny. Grace’s passion for helping others, and her work to rejuvenate communities that had fallen on hard times spanned her remarkable 100 years of life, and will continue to inspire generations to come.  Our thoughts and prayers are with Grace’s family and friends, and all those who loved her dearly. President Obama
