Panel on “Mass Incarceration in the “Post-Racial” Era, at Occidental College, with Esther Lim (ACLU), Patrisse Cullours (Coalition to End Sheriff’s Violence), and Sharon Kyle (LA Progressive). RSVP on Facebook.
Rev. Irene Monroe: October is Domestic Awareness Month, and within lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) communities of color, not enough attention, education, intervention and advocacy is given to this issue.
William J. Astore: Overthrowing Saddam Hussein in 2003 and demobilizing Iraqi military forces predictably left a power vacuum that facilitated factionalism and extremism in Iraq, which was only exacerbated by an extended and mismanaged U.S. occupation.
Robert Koehler: The big hole in this democracy is not the candidates; it’s the bedrock, founding belief that the rest of the world is our potential enemy, that war with someone is always inevitable and only a strong military will keep us safe.
