From Border Crisis to Quakes, Women of Haiti Gather to Ignite Their Collective Power

White House correspondent Yamiche Alcindor was among several speakers who encouraged women gathering for the Haitian Ladies Network’s annual weekend to harness their political, economic and personal power to deal with the realities of Haiti today, from the border crisis to the aftermath of the recent earthquake.

What A Difference A Day Makes

The symbolism was stunning, but it was far more critical that President Biden hit the ground running, and he did. He signed 17 executive orders, reversing some of the most onerous declarations of his predecessor. He dissolved the 1776 Commission, an odious truth-erasing propaganda body charged with developing “patriotic education.” Replete with lies, peppered with quotes by Dr. Martin Luther King and Abraham Lincoln, neither of whom would have cosigned the report, the previous administration had the utter audacity to release this madness on Dr. Martin Luther King’s birthday holiday. One of the final slaps in the face from the deranged “leader.”

The last day to register to vote by mail is Monday, October 19, 2020, but, I would encourage everyone considering voting by mail to do it NOW, rather than wait until the last minute.  You can register at your local post office, on-line and at numerous locations throughout the county of Los Angeles, including at the Los Angeles Sentinel offices. 

WENDYS WINDOW: It’s Hot, You’re Tired, But Stay the Course

Summer is just about over and many of us are feeling hot, tired, and wondering what’s next?  Where did summer go?  Fun in the sun, traveling, and enjoying a nice vacation with family and loved ones didn’t happen the way many of us are used to and we are frustrated. We usually look at this time of year as a time to relax and refresh ourselves to prepare for Fall and finishing out the year strong.  The school year will begin soon, and students and parents alike have no idea what that will even look like. Businesses are still contemplating if employees should work remotely from home, and most of us have no idea what this “new normal” is really supposed to look like. But no matter what, I want to encourage all of us to not give up or give in, but let us remain steady and stay the course.
