She has been touched very personally by police brutality and it has sprung her into action to fight back. We will discuss her organization, as well as the growing problem with police brutality both in the Dallas area and nationally.
The United States contains 5% of the world population, and yet houses 25% of the worlds incarcerated. Because of this we will also be looking into the Prison Industrial Complex and the impacts it has had on society.
And lastly, we will also present to you the Leak of the Week, courtesy of WikiLeaks!
These terms -- duty, ability, and rights -- are often conflated, as a result of French and American influences. In this show, Matthew will break down the differences between them, how they relate, and how they should be respected on a practical level, all within the Christian context.
DR. ANSARI'S HUMAN RIGHTS UPDATES, hosted by Dr. Mustafa Ansari
Tuesdays, 3pm EST firstname.lastname@example.org
Dr. Ansari is an international human rights lawyer and Dean of the American Institute of Human Rights. Call to speak on air at (347) 857-3293 (some shows are pre-recorded). The American Institute of Human Rights is committed to educating attorneys and human rights activists regarding United Nations human rights treaties and covenants that America has already signed and is responsible to uphold (i.e., Executive Order 13107). Online classes and certifications are offered by the American Institute of Human Rights to equip non-attorneys to file human rights communications and complaints directly to the International Court. Please listen every Tuesday, and share each broadcasts with friends and social networks. Everyone deserves protection of their rights to life, liberty, and security of person and property. Dr. Ansari believes that many justice quests that have been quashed in American courts are nevertheless eligible for fair treatment upon review by the United Nations.

This month, The Clarkie-Connection turns its focus on to several topics that may seem disparate but, actually, are not so dissimilar or unrelated. We'll begin with an historical perspective, taking a brief look at the famed "Niagara Falls Conference" of 1905 and how that led to the formation of the NAACP, before moving on to the adoption of the 14th amendment and how it addressed citizenship rights and equal protection of the laws. This will lead, directly, into a discussion of The Hobby Lobby case - currently in the news and, more specifically, the Supreme Court - and how that is shaping the national debate on religious freedom in America. We'll then pick up where we left off last month in our ongoing discussion of The State of Education in America by looking at the staggering reductions in matriculations of minority students within NYC's three specialized schools. Thirdly, we'll be shining a spotlight on how resiliency through racial/cultural identity, particularly for African-American youth, can positively impact academic achievement and success. Join us for a complex series of topical issues and see how we deftly interweave them over the course of the hour! Don't Miss This One! ~
Release the Innocent is hosted by Mary Neal on Saturdays at 3pm Eastern Time. To present your case for innocence on the broadcasts, please email MaryLovesJustice@gmail.com or comment at Blogtalkradio.
Thousands of innocent people are released from incarceration every year. Most of them are released because they served their sentences. Between 5k and 10k people are wrongfully convicted each year. The Univ. of Mich. Law School Innocence Clinic says most wrongful convictions are caused by:
The U.S. Supreme Court has NOT determined that actually innocent people have a right to have their post-conviction evidence considered by courts. We consider it on this show and make a human rights demand to release the innocent.

Many tragedies happen during these Last Days. Each week, we learn about people who were subjected to cruel and unusual treatment by their government in the form of police violence and denial of basic human and civil rights. On a majority of the radio shows I participate in, we approach the issues from a mostly secular perspective. We are sensitive to the fact that our audiences are comprised of many people who have differing viewpoints on religion. But as a Christian, I feel that the problems we face can only be resolved when we apply the Biblical solution. God said:
If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land. ~2 Cor. 7:14.
