"The Biden administration will enforce Title IX's prohibition on the basis of sex to include discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity, it confirmed Wednesday in a decision that expands protections under the landmark civil rights law. 'The Supreme Court has upheld the right for LGBTQ+ people to live and work without fear of harassment, exclusion, and discrimination – and our LGBTQ+ students have the same rights and deserve the same protections," Education Secretary Miguel Cardona said, referencing last year's ruling in Bostock v. Clayton County, which held that an employer cannot discriminate against an employee based on their sexual orientation or gender identity without discriminating against that person based on sex.'" https://www.usnews.com/news/education-news/articles/2021-06-16/biden-administration-title-ix-protections-extend-to-transgender-students

"One year ago today, President Biden issued an executive order directing federal agencies to conduct effective voter registration. Given the onslaught of attacks on voting rights across the country, this executive order on Promoting Access to Voting was imperative, and is an unprecedented opportunity for the federal government to provide meaningful opportunities to register to vote and expand access to the ballot for millions of Americans....While we are very encouraged by this progress, we implore the federal government to do more. There are many additional federal programs where following the NVRA model for providing voter registration services would be easy and effective. For example, robust voter registration services should be provided by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services at all naturalization ceremonies, and an opportunity to register to vote should be incorporated into the Free Application for Federal Student Aid administrated by the Department of Education. Newly naturalized citizens and younger people like college students are both underrepresented in our electorate, and incorporating voter registration services into these programs would provide great opportunities to address this underrepresentation."

"The dispute in Alabama is part of a pitched redistricting battle playing out across the country, with Democrats and Republicans alike challenging electoral districts as unlawful gerrymanders. Those challenges have mostly been filed in state courts, meaning the Supreme Court is unlikely to intervene. Civil rights leaders and some Democrats say the redistricting process often disadvantages growing minority communities. Republican state officials say the Constitution allows only a limited role for the consideration of race in drawing voting districts."

We all followed Derek Chauvin's trial, but now 3 other officers have rightfully been convicted for not intervening as Chauvin kneeled on Floyd for over nine minutes killing him.

"One of the cases that could do the most harm to Americans deals with voting rights. Without the right to vote, we have little ability to ensure that at least our elected branches are accountable and responsive to us. The court has agreed to hear a case that could further erode federal protections against state and local laws that burden the right to vote based on race."

"The Supreme Court’s recent decision, reversing that of a lower federal court, to reinstate Alabama’s evidently gerrymandered voting map did more than just make it harder for affected voters to have a meaningful say in the November midterms. To be sure, according to the lower court’s three-judge panel (which included two Trump appointees), the new map adversely impacts Black Alabamans in a way that violates the Voting Rights Act." Read more below: What are your thoughts on the article? I think it is quite wrong that voting maps are too often drawn to disadvantage Black voters.

"US Attorney General Merrick Garland spoke to the press following today's verdict. Garland said that Arbery was 'targeted, chased, shot and killed' by the three men charged in this case while he was 'running on a public street.' Garland said that it was 'racism that fueled them' during their pursuit and murder of Arbery. Garland called Arbery's death an 'enduring trauma' for his family and loved ones. 'My heart goes out to his parents,' the attorney general said, adding, that it is an 'unimaginable loss they have endured.' Garland said that 'hate crimes have a singular impact' because of the 'terror and fear that they inflict on entire communities.' He said that nobody in this country should fear that 'when they go out for a run they will be targeted and killed because of the color of their skin.'"

"Black history is important for all students because most of the things that happened in history are still happening today. We think of slavery as a thing of the past, but mass incarceration and its gateway, the school to prison pipeline, are the new slavery. I teach my students about these issues because It helps them understand what kind of society they live in and how this reality came into being. It’s especially important for Black students: Without understanding what happened and is still happening to their people, they won’t know how to maneuver in society once they step out of my classroom and into the real world. It’s like going into a fire not knowing that you’ll get burned. I want to prepare them for the harsh realities that they’re going to face every day as they become adults."

"This is a central argument for why representation is so important — that a representational democracy should reflect its people. Another argument is that it opens up what future generations believe is possible. Cordell has had that kind of impact. Before she met Cordell, Margaret Russell hadn't really thought about going into the law. "LaDoris Cordell is the first Black judge I ever met," she says. Now Russell teaches law at Santa Clara University. Russell is Black and Japanese American and she says there's great power in being able to see someone who looks like you in positions of power."
