As a classroom teacher, Mark confronted the challenges in our public education system daily. In 1990, Mark was elected to the Riverside Community College District's Board of Trustees. At RCC, Mark worked with Republicans and Democrats to improve higher education for young people and job training opportunities for adults seeking to learn a new skill or start a new career.

On this bonus episode, Amanda is joined by two leaders in the Asian American community. First, NBC reporter Kimmy Yam explains how a direct line can be made from the historical marginalization of Asian women in America to Tuesday’s mass shooting in Georgia, and describes her own fears as an Asian woman in an urban area. Then, Rep. Mark Takano (D-CA) shares his family’s experience in Japanese internment camps, the legal origins of anti-Asian discrimination, and the intersection of racism and homophobia.
On the eve of the 79th anniversary of the executive order that authorized the internment of Japanese-Americans, Congressman Mark Takano shares the story of his family's internment with Marisa and Scott.

A number of local members of Congress celebrated the historic swearing in of Vice President Kamala Harris Wednesday on Twitter. Harris, a former California Senator, is the first woman and the first person of both South Asian and Jamaican decent to hold this national office. Senator Alex Padilla, who was appointed to take over Vice President Harris’ vacated Senate seat, declared in a tweet that Harris, a daughter of Oakland, has inspired women and girls around the world. Riverside’s Mark Takano tweeted his congratulations and called it a new day in America while Pomona Representative Norma Torres shared that we can all take pride in Harris shattering one of the highest glass ceilings. Big Bear’s Jay Obernolte posted that he was honored to witness the inauguration, and he is confident he can find common ground with the Biden-Harris administration. Obernolte was one of the 121 House Republicans who objected to accepting the 2020 election results two weeks ago.

The General Services Administration, the federal agency that deals with the formal transition process for transfers of power, has informed President-elect Joe Biden that the Trump Administration is ready to begin the process after weeks of stalling. KVCR’s Benjamin Purper spoke with inland Democratic Representative Mark Takano of Riverside. Takano says he’s relieved the transition is now happening, but he feels that GSA Administrator Emily Murphy acted inappropriately in waiting so long to do it. “It was wholly inappropriate for the administrator to play the politics that she did, and this cannot be normalized. And it certainly is an embarrassment for such a distinguished democracy that the United States has historically been,” Takano says. That the transition is now underway means President-elect Biden now has access to federal agencies and millions in government funding. “And certainly as Chairman of the Veterans’ Affairs Committee, we can’t afford to see the welfare of our nation’s

Welcome to “Future Positive,” a podcast from XPRIZE. We convene the world’s brightest minds, across a kaleidoscope of cultures and points of view, revealing their inspirations, and how and why they will change the world. The views on this podcast are not those of XPRIZE.Democracy’s obituary? Part 1: The Dark Side of Technology The end of the 20th century saw the implosion of communist dictatorships across the globe. In 1989 with the fall of the Berlin wall, we saw democracy greatly expanding, and in the 1989 essay “The End of History’’ American academic Frances Fukuyama declared a victory and the universalization of western liberalism. Fast forward to today, where we have Turkey and Venezuela sprinting away from democracy and even the American experiment hangs in the balance with the rise of fake-news, misinformation and lack of leadership. The gloves are off. We join political educator, social commentator, and Chief Advancement Officer Shlomy Kattan as he gathers Susan Herman, head of ACLU, political innovator Joe Trippi and “professor in exile” Bret Weinstein, for a special two-part episode that rips the band-aid off taboo topics like campaign corruption, UNITY 2020 and the conversation du jour - changing the system of government with a courageous, capable, patriotic bi-partisan team. Oh, and we get deep on tools, teams and techniques on election hacking. Fireworks. Susan N. Herman was elected President of the American Civil Liberties Union in October 2008, after having served on the ACLU National Board of Directors, as a member of the Executive Committee, and as General Counsel. Herman holds a chair as Centennial Professor of Law at Brooklyn Law School, where she teaches courses in Constitutional Law and Criminal Procedure, and seminars on Law and Literature, and Terrorism and Civil LibertiesShe writes extensively on constitutional and criminal procedure topics for scholarly and other publications, ranging from law reviews and books to periodicals and on-line publications. Her most recent book, Taking Liberties: The War on Terror and the Erosion of American Democracy, (Oxford University Press 2011; 2014 paperback), is the winner of the 2012 Roy C. Palmer Civil Liberties Prize.Herman has also discussed constitutional law issues on radio, including NPR shows around the country; on television, including programs on PBS, CSPAN, NBC, MSNBC and a series of appearances on the Today in New York show; and in print media including Newsday, TIME, the Huffington Post, and the New York Times.She has been a frequent speaker at academic conferences and continuing legal education events organized by groups including the Federal Judicial Center, and at numerous law schools, colleges (including the U.S. Army War College), universities, and high schools. She has also spoken at dozens of non-academic conferences, including recent appearances at the 2017 Web Summit in Lisbon, Wikimania, the Brussels Forum, the National Archives, etc. She has received awards from groups as disparate as the Japanese-American Bar Association, the United Sikhs, and the Theatre of the Oppressed NYC.Herman has also participated in Supreme Court litigation, writing and collaborating on amicus curiae briefs for the ACLU on a range of constitutional criminal procedure issues, most recently in Riley v. California, 134 S. Ct. 2473 (2014), where the Supreme Court accepted the argument that cell phones cannot be searched “incident to arrest” without a search warrant.Herman received a B.A. from Barnard College as a philosophy major, and a J.D. from New York University School of Law, where she was a Note and Comment Editor on the N.Y.U. Law Review. Before entering teaching, Professor Herman was Pro Se Law Clerk for the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit, and Staff Attorney and then Associate Director of Prisoners' Legal Services of New York.Heralded on the cover of The New Republic as the man who “reinvented campaigning,” Joe Trippi has been at the forefront of movement politics for nearly 40 years. Trippi began his political career working on Edward M. Kennedy’s presidential campaign in 1980 and has worked on numerous presidential, gubernatorial, senate, and congressional campaigns ever since.Most recently, Trippi was a senior strategist on Doug Jones’ historic victory in Alabama, helping elect the first Democrat U.S. Senator in Alabama in 25 years. Trippi wrote the ads and helped build the campaign strategy which was recognized with 7 Reed Awards and 3 Pollie Awards, including the “Best in Show” award for a Democratic Campaign.Trippi helped engineer a number of groundbreaking House victories for Representatives Ro Khanna, Tulsi Gabbard, Mark Takano, and Seth Moulton. In 2014, Trippi advised and produced the ads for Seth Moulton in one of the biggest upsets of the year, beating 18-year incumbent John Tierney. One ad, “Re-elect,” propelled Seth to victory and was named “the best […] of the primary ads.”In 2010, Trippi was a senior strategist and media consultant in Jerry Brown’s successful run for California Governor. The campaign’s ads were described as “clever” and “amazing,” and they were widely considered some of best of 2010. TIME magazine named one ad, “Echo,” the best ad of 2010, and the Brown ads received four “Pollie” awards for excellence in political media.In 2004, as the National Campaign Manager for Howard Dean’s presidential campaign, Trippi pioneered the use of online technology to organize what became the largest grassroots movement in presidential politics. Through his innovative use of the Internet for small-donor fundraising, “Dean for America” raised more money than any Democratic presidential campaign to that point – all with donations averaging less than $100.Trippi and his team pioneered the empowerment message and the online community tools that President Barack Obama used, which inspired a movement of supporters and has now become the basis for movement politics all around the world.Trippi has an extensive international resume.

In 2008, Trippi helped Morgan Tsvangirai and the Movement for Democratic Change receive the most votes and helped garner international media attention to Robert Mugabe’s democratic subversion and violence. These efforts led to a ‘unity’ government and Tsvangirai becoming Prime Minister of Zimbabwe. In 2011, Trippi helped elect Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan.In 2016, Trippi founded Vanguard Africa, to provide advice and technical support to pro-democracy and anti-corruption candidates. Among other races, as part of the international campaign team, Trippi helped oust Gambia’s dictator, Yahya Jammeh.In addition to his political work, Trippi has consulted with a number of leading non-profits and corporations including the Humane Society of the United States, the American Cancer Society, Best Friends Animal Society, Monster.com, Toyota, DaimlerChrysler, SES Americom, Corning, LabCorp, IBM, Lionsgate Films, BestBuy, and Wave Systems.Trippi is a CNN Contributor and the Author of The Revolution Will Not Be Televised.www.aclu.orgxprize.org/bloghttps://tnrcampaigns.com See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

With all the misconceptions, political projects, and flat-out panics about tech in Congress these days, it sometimes feels like any positive legislative progress regarding technology is impossible. But once in a while you find a lawmaker who is out there pushing smart bills about tech, such as one that aims to help solve this whole mess by restoring and redesigning the Office of Technology Assessment to help educate Congress in the digital age. This week, we're joined by Rep. Mark Takano to discuss his plans to bring tech literacy back to Congress.
It turns out that the West Coast doesn't have a lock on law and tech innovation. On this episode, we talk with four guests who are involved in the upcoming NYU Law and Tech: Impact on Innovation, coming up on October 15, 2019. Our guests today are Felicity Conrad is a NYU grad and CoFounder and CEO of Paladin. Michael Weinberg is the Executive Director at the Engelberg Center on Innovation Law & Policy at NYU. Christian Lang, Head of Strategy at Reynen Court. And, Anna McGrane is also an NYU Law alum, and is the Co-founder and COO of PacerPro. Each discuss their individual experiences with legal tech innovation, and how the NYU campus has become an launching point for many of its grads toward the legal technology and innovation community. From start-ups to meet-ups, our guests believe that NYU is showing that innovation can have a definite East Coast flavor. Information Inspirations The Return of FREE PACER!! Northwestern University's Interdisciplinary team, which includes seven law faculty, including our previous guest, Tom Gaylord, was awarded a National Science Foundation Convergence Accelerator Grant this month. The $1 Million grant will be used to advance Northwestern's AI-Powered data platform which interfaces with the federal PACER system. The Northwestern Open Access to Court Records Initiative (NOACRI) Team includes lawyers, journalists, economists, and policy makers across the different schools at Northwestern, and they are working to create tools needed to make the data locked in PACER available, and then link that data to public information about the litigants, judges, lawyers, and the courts. We wish them luck!! Can Congress Regulate Algorithms used in judicial processes? California Representative, Mark Takano has introduced the “Justice in Forensic Algorithms Act of 2019.” The idea is to create a standards for these algorithms that make them more transparent, especially to the defense teams, not just for the results, but for the entire process. Algorithms used in the courts will also not be able to hide behind trade secrets to prevent those affected by the algorithms from understanding how these results were produced. Can the government actually pull this off? It'll be interesting to see how this progresses. Plus, a bonus inspiration on what law firms should be doing to encourage 1L's and 2L's to learn more about technology while still at the law schools.
