Supreme Court Nominee Gorsuch Has Not Met the Civil Rights Standard To Earn Our Support
March 29, 2017
Of course, no serious discussion of Judge Gorsuch's confirmation can ignore the fact that his nomination was the result of an egregious dereliction of duty by the Senate, who refused to give President Obama's nominee, Merrick Garland, the hearing he was due. The Senate's failure with regard to that nomination does not bode well for its ability to keep partisanship from tainting the process. ... read more »
Too Many of Us Can’t Use Math to Manage Our Money
March 29, 2017
Many Americans are stymied by tests involving simple math to solve everyday financial problems expressed in English. U.S. adults do worse than adults in 19 of 23 industrial nations, ranking just behind Poland.[1] This represents a failure of our educational system as well as a stark reminder of the work we have to do as a society. Parents need to set an example of fiscal management for their children. As a child, my immigrant parents set aside a portion of every paycheck to savings, no matter how difficult it was to do. From a young age, the value of savings was ingrained in my habits.` ... read more »
Sen. Kamala Harris: Why I cannot support Judge Gorsuch
March 29, 2017

Considering King’s Martyrdom and Message: Losing Illusions and Gaining Truth
March 29, 2017
Like all the great men and women who compose and construct this sacred narrative we know as our history, African history, both the life and death of Martin Luther King Jr. offer us valuable lessons on not only how we should live our lives, but also those things to which and for which we will give our lives. King’s death for us cannot be simply summed up as an assassination; for that is what the oppressor and his collaborators did. And we do not deny it or play down its evil. But to focus on what they did is to overlook and lessen the importance of what King did. For he gave his life so we could live fuller and freer ones. And it is this self-giving for us and the greater causes of life that we call and honor as martyrdom. ... read more »

Empower Nurses to Blow the Whistle on Unsafe Hospitals
March 24, 2017
Saving lives was the reason I became a registered nurse. For more than 30 years, I’ve worked with some of the sickest patients at Northridge Hospital Medical Center, helping them on the path to recovery. My passion for saving lives has taken me across the U.S. and as far as the Philippines, Nepal, and Haiti to help with disaster response. Today, I’m worried about a brewing disaster that affects people here in my community: a chronic understaffing by hospitals that puts the lives of the patients I care for at risk and jeopardizes nurses who are doing their job to protect patient safety. ... read more »
