Neighbors Without Homes - Part Two

In Part One of Neighbors Without Homes, the final paragraph asked how can we make our planet better since we're all here together.  Consider what it would take to solve the issue of neighbors without homes. 

Neighbors Without Homes - Part One

We're all connected.  No one is better than anyone else, so why do so many lack life's bare necessities?  Maybe everyone should think about our neighbors, even if they don't have homes.

#NewDealOrNoDeal

A viable plan to repair our campaign finance issues so we can get necessary representation, then resolve our economy so we can use it.

Too full for the powerful, not enough for the downtrodden.

Be Careful What You Clap For

All wins aren't actually wins for progressives, especially when policy isn't the most important thing involved.

Onward Christian Soldiers

The world is watching. If you believe, then God is watching too.

This is about as low as a political party in its unmitigated desire for power can get.

A Journey Through a Failing System: Special Education

I was called rude and unforgiving names, and treated as a thing instead of as a person. It made it almost impossible for me to make friends. I can personally say not only does it affect you in your early years, but it also affects you in your later years as well.

What I've Learned At Real Progressives

We are a family. A family of people who learned to work, to strive, to dream, and to succeed or fail together. A family of people who answered a call.

Trigger Warning: Women's Rights Have Little To Do With Race

Women's rights, by definition, can't be expected to advocate issues that affect the rights of men and male-identifying individuals. Nor can they effectively advocate for race issues.

The Women's March and It's Resistance

My hope is that this will be just the first of many pieces written by various people both within the RP organization and anyone else who wants to talk about it. Perhaps we can create an anthology of real discussions of white privilege by both those who benefit from it and those who have been harmed by it.

Solve Racism With MMT
