In the last two years we have seen an explosion in assertion of “absolute freedom” and “absolute rights” in the social and political crisis surrounding vaccines and the government's authority to mandate vaccines. Throughout the country, people have asserted an irreducible freedom and an unconditional right to “decide” whether to accept the vaccination. This is understanding and assertion of freedom and rights are yet another example of an extraordinary confusion about the core philosophical and political ideas that animate the American Political experiment. In this episode we explore historical and philosophical story surrounding the Modern, and the Modern Liberal notion of Freedom and Natural Rights and, we identify the difference between original and political Freedom, and between Natural Rights and Civil Rights.

Much has been said about police officers and departments who violate civil rights or enforce the law in discriminatory ways. But not as much attention has been paid to the ways in which the U.S. Supreme Court has enabled police excesses and insulated police from civil or criminal responsibility, says Erwin Chemerinsky, dean of the University of California at Berkeley School of Law and author of the new book Presumed Guilty: How the Supreme Court Empowered the Police and Subverted Civil Rights. In this episode of the Modern Law Library, Chemerinsky discusses why the Supreme Court did not address police powers during the first century of its existence; why the Warren Court was an aberration when it came to curtailing police powers; and what his experience was like when he investigated the Los Angeles Police Department's notorious Rampart Division in 2000. While Chemerinsky is not in favor of abolishing police, he also suggests several pathways for the American people to reform policing systems and buttress Fourth Amendment protections without relying on the Supreme Court to hold police accountable. He also shares how he was able to finish his book on an accelerated deadline while juggling his work as an ABA Journal columnist and a dean of a law school during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Gloria Allred steps Behind The Rope. No, you are not seeing things. Living Legend! Icon in the flesh! Trailblazer! The most well known, bad a** Civil Rights attorney to ever exist in the world was kind enough to grace us with her presence. We are not worthy!! If you ask Gloria, and we did, it isn't about any of those titles or accolades or record breaking dollar amount judgements she, and her partners at Allred, Maroko & Goldberg, have won. It is about giving a voice to those who would otherwise not have a voice and fighting for those whose rights have been presumably violated, often by the Hollywood elite. Some of these Hollywood elite that Gloria has pursued and or been involved in cases against include, but are not limited to, Bill Cosby, R. Kelly, Michael Jackson, O.J. Simpson, Rob Lowe, Roman Polanski, Donald Trump, Harvey Weinstein, Aaron Spelling and so on, and on, and on. Gloria has done more for Civil, Human, Women's, Gay, Transgender, and everything else rights than any other Attorney we can think of. Gloria opens up about the woman behind the public figure as seen on every major news outlet around the world answering questions on the biggest misconceptions she has heard about herself, moments of insecurity and fear, if any (we don't see any), what she does for fun, and can she step outside of herself, look back, reflect and realize that she has had one of the most brilliant legal carers of all time. While we have one of the most brilliant legal minds to ever exist in our presence, we get Gloria's thoughts on current cases such as the Britney Spears conservatorship, The Erika Jayne / Tom Girardi Divorce, Armie Hammer's disappearance, and Sharon Osbourne's “cancellation” from The Talk, to name a few. Gloria also chats about the brilliant Netflix documentary “Seeing Allred” discussing what it is like to have your own Netflix Documentary, but, then again, with a career as brilliant as hers, of course Gloria has her own Netflix Documentary. What an honor.

Cinque Northern talks about working on the documentary 'My name is Pauli Murray'. The film takes a look at the life of often unsung Civil Rights hero Pauli Murray, and the behind-the-scenes of her private life. Though she was not openly LGBTQIA+, at a time when that was frowned upon and dangerous, it informed some of her work. https://www.amazon.com/My-Name-Pauli-Murray/dp/B09DMPMWCP From Wikipedia: "My Name Is Pauli Murray is an 2021 American documentary film, directed by #BetsyWest and #JulieCohen, written by West, Cohen, #TalleahBridgesMcMahon and #CinqueNorthern. It follows the life of lawyer and activist Pauli Murray... who was instrumental in arguing the equal protection clause of the fourteenth amendment outlawed discrimination based on sex. Several scholars of Murray's work are featured in the film including Brittney Cooper and Rosalind Rosenberg. Rosenberg's research for the book Jane Crow: The Life of Pauli Murray is also highlighted. The film includes significant coverage of Murray's papers housed at the Schlesinger library. Murray's influence on Ruth Bader Ginsburg is covered in detail throughout the film." . . . . #paulimurray #paulimurrayproject #civilrights #womensrights #womensrightsmovement #lgbtq #lgbtqallies #amazonprime #documentaries #documentary #blackwomen #blackwomencivilrights #civilrightsleaders #paulimurraycenter --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/nancygandcorryg/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/nancygandcorryg/support

This week's episode is a little different than any other since we launched about 17 months ago. We're biased, but we think it's going to be really cool.Going into this school year we decided that we wanted our students in the C-10 Mentoring & Leadership program to dive deeper into leadership. To be more intentional about how they think about leadership.With that in mind, and feeling that the guests we have on this podcast offer great leadership lessons, a few weeks ago we told the students about a new project they're taking on this year. We asked them to pick an episode of the C-10 Podcast that they wanted to listen to, pick a segment that spoke to them the most, and then prepare a short talk about that segment...or be interviewed by their mentor about that segment. (All five students in this first group chose to be interviewed.) And then we opened it up to questions from the other students and mentors.So, this week, five students from our C-10 program are going to be the stars -- the experts, as we told them -- for this episode.Keep this in mind: we typically have about 40-45 people at each session, and the five students you'll hear from in this episode all volunteered to be in the first group. They volunteered to get up in front of the group and speak. Take charge of this. That alone speaks to their leadership now and in the future. This group includes two new students -- a sophomore and a junior, two more juniors and a senior. Two of the students in this group are actually siblings.We'll introduce each student and mentor along the way, but here's who you'll hear:-- Alissa and her mentor Jen Fescoe after a clip from Olympic gold medal swimmer Shannon Vreeland.-- Dawson, who's regular mentor was not there, so pinch hitter Todd Donoho will interview Dawson after a clip from two-time Olympic silver medalist in gymnastics, Terin Humphrey.-- One special person our students have heard from a couple of times during their weekly sessions is Carl Jemison, who grew up in Birmingham during the Civil Rights movement, and knew Martin Luther King Jr. Second-year student Trey and his mentor Stann Tate will talk about Carl.-- First-year student Norman and his mentor, Andrew Kreiling, will talk about a segment from one of our other mentors, George Norton, who spent the bulk of his career in the Army.-- Finally will be Andrew's other student and lone senior this week, Sidney, who selected a clip from KMBC meteorologist Bryan Busby's episode. It's a little different week, but we hope you enjoy hearing from some of our students.LINKS:We're currently in the Crown Town Challenge campaign to thank your mentor AND provide mentoring for high school students in Kansas City.

GBA Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Series – Episode #2 – Understanding Your Workforce Summary Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) is a term often used in the workplace, but its meaning is often not well understood. People often mistakenly think that, with the creation of a diverse workplace, inclusion will automatically follow. Yet, inclusion should exist in tandem; it's the climate where diversity thrives. In this episode, we will be discussing the how other professions tackle diversity, equity, and inclusions within their organizations and the importance of understanding the needs of your workforce in relation to diversity and inclusion. Our Guest Cristina Bartolomei, Senior Program Manager, Diversity, Equity and Inclusion / FDA (https://www.fda.gov/) [Link to Profile] (https://www.linkedin.com/in/cristinabartolomei/) Cristina Bartolomei is an accomplished strategist, speaker, and facilitator, with over a decade of experience in affirmative employment, EEO, and D&I. She attributes her passion for civil rights, social action, and equality to her upbringing in Puerto Rico, where she developed a lifelong passion for social activism. She has channeled this passion throughout her career. As a first-generation professional, she also believes in her role in making civil service accessible for all. In March 2021, Cristina joined the FDA as the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Senior Program Manager, tasked with managing short and long-term FDA-wide DEI initiatives and advising senior management on the development, enhancement, and implementation of projects, practices, and procedures to maintain an inclusive and effective diversity management program. Prior to joining the FDA, she was a Senior Specialist at the U.S. Department of Commerce, Office of Civil Rights, where she served as a key player in the development, implementation, and management of DEI programs and initiatives, which included the Inclusion is on US™ campaign and the First-Generation Professionals (FGP) Initiative – first-of-their-kind Federal initiatives promoting an organizational culture that respects, values, and engages all employees, regardless of their cultural and socio-economic backgrounds. Topics for discussion include: How to define Diversity, Equity and Inclusion How to start formulation DEI initiative The importance of understanding your workforce Employee Satisfaction vs. Employee Engagement Calls-to-action: GEOSTRATA: The Pipeline to Diversity and Inclusion in the Geoprofessions (https://www.readgeo.com/geostrata/november_december_geostrata/MobilePagedArticle.action?articleId=1637554#articleId1637554) Visit the GBA Website at https://www.geoprofessional.org (https://www.geoprofessional.org) for other training resources and reference materials and/or to become a member.

We will hear from an incredible lineup of speakers and an extended Q & A with expert panel. Medical Freedom: The Civil Rights Fight of Our Time. Biden's Mandates get more pointless every day. What he has managed to achieve is dissension, confusion, lawsuits and worker shortages. Biden's mandates, as well as those issued by state and corporations, have sparked a raft of lawsuits. Federal workers, contractors, American Postal Workers Union, health care workers, firefighters, police officers, United Airlines employees and more have filed suit against the U.S. government and company's vaccine mandates. So we ask, what is the point of all this? Is it to protect the vaccinated, the people Biden himself says are well protected by the experimental injection? Or is there something more going on? Is this an exercise of government control? If the public can be convinced to follow government overreach orders here, what else can be declared a " public health emergency? pastorrickbrown.com

He is director of the college's race and ethnicity programme and is a contributing editor to the James Baldwin Review.

The Wake Up is divided into four key parts:- Grounding: begin by moving beyond good intentions to interrogating our deeper “why” for committing to social justice and uncovering our "hidden stories."- Orienting: establish a shared understanding around our historical and current context and issues we are trying to solve, starting with dismantling white supremacy.- Showing Up: learn critical principles to approach any situation with clarity and build our capacity to work through complexity, nuance, conflict, and imperfections.- Moving Together: remember the core of this work is about human lives, and commit to prioritizing humanity, healing, and community. The Wake Up is an urgent call for us to move together while seeing each other's full and expansive humanity that is at the core of our movement toward justice, healing, and freedom.Meet Michelle:Instagram: @michellekimkimTwitter: @mjmichellekimLinkedIn: linkedin.com/in/mjmichellekim// Support Dear Asian Americans:Merch: https://www.bonfire.com/store/dearasianamericans/Buy Me a Coffee: https://www.buymeacoffee.com/jerrywonLearn more about DAA Creator and Host Jerry Won:LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/jerrywon/Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/jerryjwon/// Listen to Dear Asian Americans on all major platforms:Transistor.fm: http://www.dearasianamericans.comApple: https://apple.dearasianamericans.comSpotify: https://spotify.dearasianamericans.comStitcher: https://stitcher.dearasianamericans.comGoogle: https://google.dearasianamericans.com  Follow us on Instagram: http://www.instagram.com/dearasianamericans Like us on Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/dearasianamericans Subscribe to our YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/dearasianamericans // Join the Asian Podcast Network:Web: https://asianpodcastnetwork.com/Facebook Group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/asianpodcastnetwork/Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/asianpodcastnetwork/Dear Asian Americans is produced by Just Like Media:Web: http://www.justlikemedia.comInstagram.com: http://www.instagram.com/justlikemedia
