Memorial Day meaning? What's causing all these suicides among our returning veterans? Betty has figured it out; listen in as she explains it to the world. Assignment tells the stories of America, from history, military, politics, social and economic, to entertainment - the things you never thought about to the trivia you never knew.
The long term listeners know that I've never liked Anita Sarkeesian.
This goes back to when I was still providing free labor to Black Freethinkers.
My first thought on her that still stands is that shes a huckster and a Fox News Feminist.
We'll go further in depth on her along with her SWERF - ism when she talks about who she berates as "prostituted women".

Isis says Michelle Obama is worth 40 dollars and post racial, white conservatives react.

Last February, ACAC hosted a public forum by the title, "Living in a Racialized Society." A distinguished panel of local leaders, along with Pastor Rock, shared the stage and discussed the current state of affairs in Pittsburgh and beyond where race relations is concerned. John served as moderator that evening for the event and today is going to moderate again, this time playing the first half of the program from that evening. Part 2 will be next week. This first part is about an hour long and John will make some comments before and after the recording. In light of current events in Baltimore and Ferguson, this show is must listening for anyone who has reconciliation as a personal value.
Nicholas Snow presents comprehensive coverage of the fourth annual Coachella Valley Harvey Milk Diversity Breakfast honoring the birthday of the slain gay civil rights leader, which took place Friday, May 22, 2015 at the Palm Springs Hilton. A sold-out crowd of 400 people were in attendance, including 80 students from area GSA's (Gay Straight Alliances). A highlight of the event was a very powerful speech by Aiden Stockman of the True Colors GSA, introduced by his equally-inspring mother.
Receiving the Harvey B. Milk Leadership Award of the Coachella Valley, Geoff Kors, a long-time leader and one of the most accomplished legislative and policy strategists in the LGBT movement. Over the past two decades, he has helped to enact scores of local and state laws, including helping to pass anti-discrimination laws protecting LGBT people and people with HIV/AIDS.
Keynote speaker was Kris Hayashi, Executive Director of the Transgender Law Center, who has been active in social, racial, and economic justice organizing for over 20 years.

Did you know that most activism is brought about by ordinary people? Rosa Parks, at the forefront of the Civil Rights Movement, was an ordinary person. Edmund Burke said it best - "All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing". I would include good women as well. Burke also said that "no one could make a greater mistake than he (I add she) could make a greater mistake than he who did nothing because he could do only a little."
Now, more than ever, the world needs good people to rise together to protest the injustices of gender discrimination, racial discrimination, discrimination against gays and lesbians, and other forms of discrimination.
If you have something you believe in strongly, if you have some cause that you want to support, become an activist and lend your voice to changing the world, one person and one positive action at a time.
FROM BOYS TO MEN - What can be done to stop young men from becoming perpetrators of domestic violence later in life?
David Gadd has over a decade of experience of conducting and analyzing in-depth interview research with offenders, and has written extensively on the subjects of domestic abuse, masculinities and crime, racial harassment, offender motivation and desistance from crime.
He came to Manchester University in 2011. David is currently Head of Criminology and Director of the Centre for Criminology and Criminal Justice at Manchester University School of Law.
David recently led two major research projects. One of these projects that really caught my attention and is nearing completion is - the From Boys to Men project - and looked at what can be done to stop young men becoming perpetrators of domestic violence in later life.

53 is the new 20 Nancy feels as if she's at the cusp of her life rather than dragging toward the end. At the age of 49, she believed suicide was her only choice. Major depression turned into a suicide attempt, yet four years later she's not the same woman.
Therapy unveiled the world of emotions, taught it is ok to pursue self-care, and expressed one's personal value at any age. God used this time to retrain me and to adjust her worldview.
Nancy's purpose is to tell people they are valuable and life will be worth it again one day, in hopes they will hang on to her story even when they have no faith in their own. In hopes they will hang on to my story even when they have no faith in their own.
