Rep. Karen Bass Welcomes Judges, Formerly Incarcerated Young Women for Discussion On Criminal Justice System WASHINGTON—As Congress begins to discuss reforms to our nation's criminal justice system, Congresswoman Karen Bass (D-Calif.) welcomed more than 100 attendees to a panel of juvenile court judges and young women who had involvement in the criminal justice system to discuss how Congress should address the specific needs of women and girls in the judicial system. The panel had a frank discussion of the issues impacting women and young girls in prison, including the disproportionate number of women in prison who were formerly in the foster care system. A key point raised by today’s panel was that too often the criminal justice system does not take into account the underlying family dynamics and self-esteem problems that exist prior to involvement with the criminal justice system. Participants suggested that preliminary counseling and social work engagement could potentially short circuit these

Scott, President and CEO of New Directions for Veterans, has been selected as a 2015 Corporate Diamond Award honoree by the Los Angeles Chapter of J.U.G.S. for his commitment not only to helping disadvantaged youth set and attain their goals but also serving as a role model for servant leadership. Each year, J.U.G.S. (Justice, Unity, Generosity, and Service) recognizes individuals in the corporate, business, political, community, educational and religious realms who share the organization’s mission of helping today’s youth prepare for a better tomorrow. “I am honored and humbled to be recognized by J.U.G.S., an organization that does amazing work in its own right,” said Scott. “The privilege of serving the men and women of our

armed forces who have so generously served us is reward in itself. That young people can learn from my experience and example is an added blessing that motivates me to continue to strive for excellence.” The Los Angeles Chapter of J.U.G.S. will present Scott with the award at its 36th Annual Diamond & 26th Scholarship Awards Ceremony on June 13, 2015, at the Marina Del Rey Marriott Hotel, 4100 Admiralty Way, Marina Del Rey, CA 90292.

issues before these young women run into problems with the law. Rep. Bass told the audience why she worked to bring the panel together. "Fundamentally, I believe that the best policy is done when the people who are most immediately impacted are involved in telling the policymakers what the policy should be," Bass said. Justice Joan Byer, the Circuit Court Judge from the Family Division of Jefferson County, Kentucky, echoed Rep. Bass'

with youth in the system because if you're wrong, you're really, really wrong." Judge Byer was emphatic that too often judges in the system are simply unaware of the abuse that led young people to being in the criminal justice system. According to data released by the Bureau of Justice Statistics, in 2007 more than 50 percent of the women in jail reported to have been physically or sexually abused before their imprisonment. Coming from an abusive environment directly

you don't, it is very hard to see a future,” said Judge Martin. All three young women on today’s panel confirmed they came from abusive environments as young children, which ultimately shaped their decisions leading them to the criminal justice system. Esché L.

Hello Everyone, Domestic terrorism is alive and in our neighborhood. On Wednesday around 5:00pm shots rang out in the Ladera Park. The next I heard was helicopters and sirens. Then I went to check out what had happened. Naturally, I took my camera with me. There I saw more than 15 to 20 police cars blocking office entrance

from LaBrea Avenue up to Fairfax Ave. I asked the policemen what was going on. They said that the Rolling 60s were celebrating about 120 strong in the Ladera Park because it was June 10. They said they celebrate every year on the same day. June for the 6 month and the 10 day is 6 times 10 for 60. My question to them was why didn’t the community know when children were in the park? We need to pray continually.

Time for Young People to Stop the Violence By Julianne Malveaux, NNPA Columnist I only recently embraced my status as an “elder.” Actually, I describe myself as an “episodic elder,” eager enough to take one of those lovely “senior” discounts when it serves my purpose, yet reluctant to turn in my party card. Elder status hit me upside the head, though, when a young woman told me she was “tired” of my generation preaching to hers. I’m willing to stop preaching when young leaders step up. I applaud the Black Lives Matter movement, and am excited when those who are of not African descent join this movement. Still, I am waiting for the same young leaders to demand that their peers stop killing one another. I’m not embracing the right-wing hype about Black-on-Black crime, because they don’t address White-on-White crime. I’m not suggesting that the movement for police reform take a back seat to anything else (after all, we can have more than one movement at a time). I am suggesting, however, that young African Americans confront their peers and say “enough.” When “elders” say it, we are accused of preaching, but someone needs to say it. What if the young people who abhor the killing of their friends and neighbors took shooters and their associates to task? What if they got up in their faces (in safe spaces, of course) and demanded to know why some of the young people who could contribute much to our community have now been massacred in the streets? Some of those who lost their life were victims of mistaken identity, or trapped in the wrong place at the wrong time – some were little girls playing on their porches or sitting on Grandma’s lap. Some of them were simply walking home from school. Some of them were in the middle of simple misunderstandings and lost their lives because of an errant glare, a careless word. Some, like Charnice Milton, survived childhood on to go to her grave at 27. Charnice was a talented, ambitious young reporter determined to tell the story of Southeast Washington, the part of the nation’s capital with the highest concentration of African Americans, the highest poverty rate and, more recently, the primary target of gentrification that pushes poor Black residents out of the homes in favor of young, affluent, White “urban pioneers.” Her death was more than a faceless statistic – it was personal. Charnice was in my office fact-checking my most recent book for a few weeks, and she literally shimmered when she spoke of the stories she hoped to tell. She didn’t want to be the story, she wanted to tell the story of the least and the left out and of the people and organizations making a difference.

Charnice’s dreams of telling untold stories, along with her body, were tragically shattered when a depraved young man used her body as a human shield to protect him from a drive-by gunman. Tears have been shed, hands have been wrung, and teddy bears and flowers have been left at the place where Charnice was slaughtered. A few days from now, someone else will be shot and the crying and handwringing will begin again. So far this year, 18 people have been killed in Ward 8 – almost one each week. The tears shed for Charnice are special tears for this amazing young woman, and yet they are the all-too-regular tears for lost life, for names that don’t quite make the news. Some young leaders are quick to blame heartless police or and the right-wing obsession with crime – even while it is declining in some cities – but how many in Washington, D.C., in Baltimore (where 43 people were killed so far this year), in Harlem, in Third Ward or Fifth Ward Houston, in St. Louis, were killed not by cops, but people who look like us? At some point, we ought also be able to say, simply: Stop the killings! According to the Pew Research Center, “While blacks are significantly more likely than whites to be gun homicide victims, blacks are only about half as likely as whites to have a firearm in their home (41% vs. 19%).” Thanks to the National Rifle Association, there has been a proliferation of guns in our nation. According to federal figures, there were 310 million nonmilitary firearms in the United States as of 2009. That’s an average of nearly a gun per person in our nation of 318.9 million people, making us the most heavily armed country in the world. There are more gun sellers in the U.S. than McDonald’s or grocery stores. Even so, the NRA opposes any legislation to reduce easy access to guns, and offer clichés such as “guns don’t kill, people do.” But guns don’t fire themselves. Meanwhile, young African Americans are mowed down like bowling pins, and except for the occasional reporting of an exceptional life, those who are killed are also ignored. It is time for young leaders to take their peers on, to step up and demand that the violence stop. It is time for these leaders to demand that media outlets cover the cumulative loss of life and the individuals who have been killed, without tediously parroting the mindless and non-contextual conversation about Black-on-Black crime. I write this not as an episodic elder preaching, but as a seasoned warrior asking her esteemed young leaders to take this baton and run with it.

White Racism Affects More Than Blacks By Bill Fletcher, Jr. NNPA Columnist In the context of the responses to the lynchings of African Americans by police and racist citizenry, greater and much needed attention has been focused on the question of race and racism in the U.S. Particular attention has been raised about the historic and current oppression and demonization of African Americans, i.e., anti-Black racism. While this awareness is critical, we must at the same time recognize that the racism which we have encountered since the origins of this country is integrally linked to the larger system of racial capitalism. “Race,” that is the artificial division of humanity based on manufactured inferiority and superiority, was imposed on North America and Latin America by European colonists/invaders, beginning in the 16th century. Such a division had not previously existed but became an essential means to guarantee that the settler-colonies could sustain themselves in two respects. First, there was a need for an oppressed workforce to perform all of the tasks necessary to make the colonies thrive, in the interests – of course – of the colonial elites. Second, given the numbers of laboring people in the colonies, compounded by the existence of Native Americans who were resisting the invasion of their lands, the colonial elite had to find a way to pit the laboring population, along with the Native Americans, against one another. In that moment, during the 1500s in Latin America and beginning in the 1600s in North America, race was born as an essential element of how capitalism came to work. Race and racism has created a social hierarchy that has successfully pitted groups against one another.

In Latin America, this hierarchy is extremely complex: there are divisions of humanity into myriad of groups, depending on the amount and extent of European, Native American, African and mixed blood someone has. In North America, the British were not so much interested in the future of mixed blood people. They, and later the U.S., were interested in removing Native Americans (from their land and from the Earth); keeping people of African descent suppressed; annexing and ultimately suppressing the people of northern Mexico; and turning vast numbers of Asians into quasi-indentured servants. Migrants from Europe, over time, became “White,” that is, they were admitted into the club that gave them advantages over anyone of color, advantages such as gun ownership, a different relationship with law enforcement, a better chance at housing, jobs, etc., though no guarantee of either success or wealth. None of this is to minimize what African Americans have experienced. Rather, we need to put this all into a larger context. Police violence against African Americans, for instance, has been mirrored by the police violence experienced by Chicanos and Native Americans since the 19th century. East Asians were, for years, locked into “Chinatowns,” “Japantowns,” and “Manilatowns,” where criminal activity was encouraged by White society and economic opportunities for advancement were limited, at best. As we build movements such as #BlackLivesMatter we need to recognize that we do not stand alone in the face of racism and White supremacy. The racial hierarchy ironically helps us to identify potential allies against injustice. Bill Fletcher, Jr. is the host of The Global African on TelesurEnglish.

EDUCATION & BUSINESS NEWS Rep. Karen Bass Welcomes Judges for Discussion On Criminal Justice System (Continued from page1) to violence at a young age impacted her throughout her childhood and as a young adult. "I think I was traumatized when the trauma began in the household," Ms. Jackson told the participants. "A lot of the domestic issues I was experiencing translated into my academics, and then my behavior was worse. I was in the street life. I was gang-affiliated and just leading a life of destruction." Ms. Jackson at one point was on trial for murder to protect her boyfriend because he had provided her with housing. Sonya Brown, a 28-yearold former foster youth from who served time in an adult facility as a minor for the "crime" of running away discussed the reality of growing up in New Orleans, especially post-Katrina. "I grew up in the foster care system," said Ms. Brown, who was initially happy when she was placed in the child welfare system because of her abusive par-

ents. However, the small familiarity she did have was soon taken away from her. "I was traumatized when I was separated from my siblings and placed into different foster homes because my older sister served as a surrogate mother." Ms. Brown was placed her in seven different foster homes, and she attended 10 different schools. However, even with these difficulties Ms. Brown graduated from high school and college, has a masters degree, and she has purchased her first home. Haley Marie Ceaser, who is 17-years-old, discussed how she grew up in an abusive family and how that then impacted her. "I saw my mom in an abusive relationship," said Ms. Ceaser. "I saw my mom get beat for so long that I wasn't going to let anyone hit me.... When I got put into the system everyone saw me as a big bad kid. But they didn't know that I had been molested and that I did watch my

mom in a bad relationship." Justice Donna Groman, the Supervising Judge of Kenyon Juvenile Justice Center in Los Angeles County, discussed how judges within the criminal justice system do not want to work in the children and families division. "This is my love, working with kids and families," said

Judge Groman. But she brought up a problem that family court is often seen as the lowest rung for judges. "When I saw new judges being assigned to our dependency court who really didn't want to be there as their first assignment and were doing everything possible to get to a

different assignment and not really delving into the cases like they should...I thought that I could do a better job because I was committed to being in that field for the rest of my career," Judge Groman added. Congressmembers Bobby Scott (D-VA) and Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX) also attended the event.

CHURCH & COMMUNITY NEWS Bishop T.D. Jakes Adds Tyler Perry's Madea to MegaFest 2015 Line Up Benge Nsenduluka Tyler Perry, the man who once famously laid hands on Bishop T.D. Jakes in church, will join the megachurch pastor and other evangelical leaders this summer at MegaFest when his new stage play, "Madea on the Run" makes a tour stop in Dallas. Last month, Jakes added internationally-acclaimed pastor Joyce Meyer and Australian activist Christine Caine to the powerhouse lineup of speakers who are set to hit the stage at MegaFest, which is said to be the nation's largest Christian family festival. Perry, who will appear at the event as his Madea character, is set to bring laughs to the tens of thousands of attendees expected at the three-day festival to be held Aug. 20-22. "Madea always makes us

all laugh while teaching valuable lessons that we remember long afterwards," Bishop T.D. Jakes said. "We are excited to welcome Tyler Perry back to MegaFest. Tyler is a friend and constant supporter of ours. We are happy to extend this platform to his fan base knowing that MegaFest attendees will enjoy this hilarious play." The play has been touring since March and it will be Perry's first to hit MegaFest. Other speakers to be featured include the likes of Bishop Tudor Bismarck, R.A. Vernon, Archbishop Nicholas Duncan Williams and Jakes' wife, pastor Serita Jakes. Since launching in 2004, MegaFest has grown to become one of the largest faith-based multi-day festivals in the United States with

Pastors Pledge Civil Disobedience If Supreme Court Redefines Marriage By Napp Nazworth A number of prominent pastors and lay leaders have signed a petition pledging civil disobedience if a U.S. Supreme Court decision redefining marriage to include same-sex couples infringes upon their religious freedom. "Experience and history have shown us that if the government redefines marriage to grant a legal equivalency to same-sex couples, that same government will then enforce such an action with the police power of the State. This will bring about an inevitable collision with religious freedom and conscience rights. The precedent established will leave no room for any limitation on what can constitute such a redefined notion of marriage or human sexuality. We cannot and will not allow this to occur on our watch. Religious freedom is the first freedom in the American experiment for good reason," the pledge states, in part. At press time, over 42,000 had signed the "Pledge in Solidarity to Defend Marriage." Prominent signers include, Republican presidential candidate and former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee; Dr. James Dobson, founder of Family Talk Radio; Bishop Harry Jackson, founder of High Impact Leadership Coalition; Rev. Samuel Rodriguez, president of the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference; Penny Nance, president of Concerned Women for America; Richard Land, president of Southern Evangelical Seminary and executive editor of The Christian Post; Jerry Johnson, president and CEO of National Religious Broadcasters; and Rev. Rick Scarborough, president of Vision America Action. The pledge was drafted by Mathew Staver, chairman of Liberty Counsel Action, and Deacon Keith Fournier, editor in chief at Catholic Online. According to a press release, "Those who signed the petition will resist all government efforts to require them to accept gay marriage. They will accept any fine or punishment — including jail time — to protect their religious freedom and the freedom of others." According to the pledge website, www.defendmarriage.org, the idea for the pledge originated during a Vision America teleconference with pastors led by Dobson, Scarborough and Staver. "I am speaking as a minister to the moral and biblical ramifications of this expected ruling," Scarborough said on the call. "This would be a decision as incorrect and as tragic as Dred

Scott [a Supreme Court decision upholding slavery]. Because of the trends and cultural shifts that we have witnessed in culture over the past 40 years, we have all known that this day would likely come and Christians would be put at odds with the culture and the courts. "I believe we are there. We are approaching a Bonhoeffer moment in America." Dietrich Bonhoeffer was a German pastor who spoke out against the Nazis during World War II and ultimately gave his life for the cause. Later in the call, Staver agreed with the Bonhoeffer analogy. Referring to wedding vendors who have been punished for living according to their beliefs, he said, "We either all stand together, or we hang separately. This is indeed a Bonhoeffer moment. They might be able to pick us off individually, but collectively they can't. Whenever someone gets targeted, we must gather around them and say no." In addition to Bonhoeffer, the pledge cites the example of civil rights movement leader Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. as a precedent for civil disobedience. In "Letter From a Birmingham Jail," King advocated disobedience to unjust laws. "Though affirmed, fulfilled, and elevated by faith, the truth that marriage can exist only between one man and one woman is not based on religion or revelation alone, but on the Natural Law, written on the human heart and discernible through the exercise of reason. It is part of the natural created order. The Natural Law is what Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., referred to as a higher law or a just law in his famous 'Letter from Birmingham Jail,'" the pledge states. This idea is reiterated in the second to last paragraph, which states, "Our highest respect for the rule of law requires that we not respect an unjust law that directly conflicts with higher law. A decision purporting to redefine marriage flies in the face of the Constitution and is contrary to the natural created order. As people of faith we pledge obedience to our Creator when the State directly conflicts with higher law. We respectfully warn the Supreme Court not to cross this line." The Supreme Court will announce its decision sometime this month on whether the Constitution requires all states to redefine marriage to include same-sex couples.

With its focus on family and unity, the event attracts tens of thousands of attendees and offers uplifting seminars, empowering speeches, music and other familyoriented entertainment.

"MegaFest harkens back to a simpler time when families spent quality time together," Jakes, also a prominent film producer, said previously. "With so much chaos and turmoil ensuing in the world today, it will be critical for families to reconnect and recharge their batteries in a

fun-filled, inspirational environment. It is also a great opportunity to showcase the best that Dallas has to offer — from its dynamic business community, to its arts and entertainment to its renowned shopping, restaurants and hospitality venues. MegaFest is a can't-miss opportunity for all."

HEALTH & COMMUNITY NEWS Nation of Islam Joins Anti-Vaccine Bill Protest in Sacramento By Michelle Moons SACRAMENTO — A sea of red flowed over the steps of California’s State Capitol on Tuesday as opponents of the new vaccine bill, SB 277, rallied against its passage. Hundreds gathered to hear legislators and a diverse variety of Californians from across the state denounce the bill ahead of a public hearing in the State Assembly’s Committee on Health. Assembly Member Devon Mathis (R-Visalia) said, “This bill, in my opinion, is not about vaccines. It is about combatting an overreaching government from infringing our Constitutional rights, religious freedoms and to protect the relationships between the patients and their medical professional.” Mathis cited the previously passed AB 2109, which requires healthcare professionals to discuss the benefits and risks associated with vaccinations. “SB 277 is a vehicle to

strip Californians of their rights and set precedents which can ripple across the nation. I did not spend 10 years as a Sergeant in the Army National Guard getting blown up twice for our country to come home and have legislators try to infringe on your rights.” Assembly Member Shannon Grove (R-Bakersfield) spoke next, saying, “Sacramento politicians, some of them up here, they don’t trust you as parents. They assume you’re ignorant or stupid. They think that you can’t be trusted with the care of your own children. But they have forgotten who they work for.” The crowd cheered. She continued: There is no public health crisis here that warrants this law. These politicians don’t want you to think for yourself. They think they are better parents than you are. And they are annoyed that you are clogging up their hallways. They are annoyed that you are demanding to be left alone.

Unruly Emotions By Dean L. Jones, CPM Social media is possibly over exposing a long time terrible occurrence, but it seems really sad that so many people are today seen fighting and displaying so much aggression against one another. Between fast food places and road rage personal videos of unruly emotions are seemingly quite common. Across the country, social media videos are capturing physical fights among men, women, and children over what usually appears to be about nothing of any importance. The term important is relevant, because when your bodily harm and life becomes threatened the fight or flight response is rapidly elevated. Although there is no pattern of the many fights caught on camera, the people shown carrying out anger around food situations overtly points to an out-of-balance blood sugar level. When eating heavily processed sugary-filled items the body will experience an abrupt change in blood sugar level that can trigger a course-of-action to release unregulated amounts of insulin into the body's blood stream. There are countless videos posted on www.youtube.com, which shows a portion of American culture fighting in food establishments like Chuck E. Cheese, Taco Bell, McDonald's, Denny's, Wendy's, and the multiple WalMart customer brawls. A low blood sugar level can really make a person go off with serious anger, and as the foodmood link may not cause unruly outbreaks, conversely it surely seems possible whereas having a nutritious meal places people in a more peaceful mood. Just this week two guys driving on a Hollywood street were caught on video fist fighting right out of their cars. The guy with the lesser gut got the best of the apparent instigator and then returned to his car and fled from the scene. Even though there was no food involved here, an out-of-control act prevents the brain from responding correctly in a critical thinking time of fight or flight,

Dean L. Jones leaving one to a higher chance of an unsafe outcome. The facts bear out that when levels of the brain's chemical serotonin dip, from stress or not eating, it affects the brain regions regulating anger, potentially resulting in a whirlwind of uncontrollable emotions. Current foodstuff is extremely processed with nominal nutritional value and thereby producing illhealth ramifications like obesity, diabetes, heart disease, and high cholesterol. Consequently, being more aware of the harm processed foodstuff causes is the important thing and eliminating unwholesome items from the diet is a proactive way to improve physical and emotional health. There are more people on the planet and video cameras are just about everywhere, so maybe people have been overly aggressive to one another forever, even so, we are definitely seeing more of it.

BUSINESS & COMMUNITY NEWS Mayor Garcetti Unveils Delta Air Lines’s $229 Million Renovation LOS ANGELES -- Mayor Eric Garcetti, on Wednesday, was joined by Councilmember Tom LaBonge, Councilmember Mike Bonin, Board of Airport Commissioners President Sean Burton, Los Angeles World Air-

ports (LAWA) Executive Director Gina Marie Lindsey, President of Delta Airlines Ed Bastian, and Delta Air Lines representatives to unveil the results of a three-year, $230 million renovation of Terminal 5, the latest addition to the

city's more than $8 billion public works project to overhaul the Los Angeles International Airport (LAX). The project created an estimated 1,000 construction jobs --in addition to the 2,800 Delta jobs already in Los Angeles, and the more than $24.6 million dollars that Delta injects into the local economy each year. The Delta refurbishment includes four additional security screening points, an expanded ticketing lobby, a new baggage claim, and Delta’s first exclusive check-in area. "These upgrades to Terminal 5 are transforming the first and last impression for visitors to Los Angeles," said Mayor Garcetti. "This investment by Delta Air Lines is the latest in our now more than $8 billion overhaul of

LAX. Whether by upgrading nearly all of our terminals, bringing in ridesharing services to pick you up, or connecting the nation's second busiest airport to rail, we're making LAX a worldclass airport befitting a city that is the global capital of creativity, innovation and possibility. I am thrilled that Delta is growing its presence here in Los Angeles." “We’re fast on our way to becoming the airline of choice in Los Angeles by understanding what moves L.A. – its most prominent industries, its most desired destinations, and its discerning customers’ required amenities for travel," said Delta President Ed Bastian. “Our investments in T5 now offer Angelenos a more premium airport experience, from check-in to take

-off.” The upgrades are focused on improving the customer experience and enabling passengers to get in and out of the airport quicker. This terminal renovation is part of Mayor Garcetti's agenda to invest in making LAX a world class airport for the more than 70 million passengers that travel through the airport each year, and the more than 44 million people that visit Los Angeles each year. The LAX Modernization Program is creating nearly 40,000 construction-related jobs and pumps $6.89 billion into the local economy. The LAX Modernization Program is funded by LAX operating revenue, terminal concession revenue, airline fees, and airport revenue bond proceeds.

Nation of Islam Joins Anti-Vaccine Bill Protest in Sacramento (Continued from page 6) suggests that the only alternative that you would have for your children is homeschooling. I thought we apologized for internment camps a long time ago.” Even the Nation of Islam turned up. Minister Tony Muhammad, Western Regional Representative for the Nation of Islam, identifying himself as a Representative of Minister Louis Farrakhan, said, “This heinous bill has come to the attention of the black community.

I’m here to represent a man who told me to tell you that this fight is a universal fight.” He compared the bill to the story of the Pharaoh of Egypt killing all male babies under two in Egypt. “Could this be a bill to destroy our boy babies? I’m letting you know that the black community, we are not going to stand by.” The final speaker of the rally, Dr. Bob Sears, said that “this bill is not about whether vaccines are right or wrong,” and that if legislators “vote

against this bill it doesn’t mean that they’re anti-vaccine at all.” Rather, he said, the bill would be ineffective. He argued that if SB 277 had been enacted leading into last winter’s measles outbreak, it would not have stopped the spread of the disease. The rally closed with leaders guiding protesters to the hearing for SB 277 in the Assembly Committee on Health, ongoing as of this writing. Follow Michelle Moons on Twitter @MichelleDiana

NEWS Community Efforts Urged to Curb Mass Incarceration By Jazelle Hunt WASHINGTON (NNPA) – The Black community should take a larger role in curbing mass incarceration and be less reliant on public officials to slow prison growth, says Rev. Hebert Brown III, community organizer and leader of Pleasant Hope Baptist Church in Baltimore. “In addition to banging on the system and going to the White House and moving on legislation to ban the box, et cetera, et cetera, I think it is a mistake for those who are most directly affected to wait for the experts to come do it,” Brown said. He made his remarks during a panel sponsored by the Center for American Progress (CAP), a progressive policy think-tank in Washington. The panel was part of an event titled, “Toward a More Perfect Union: Bringing Criminal Justice Reform to Our Communities.” Brown said, “[During the Baltimore uprising] we started to create the systems that we needed. We’re not calling 911 for everything. Let us move into spaces where we develop the training, skills, and whatever else is necessary, and just be neighbors and sisters and brothers again so that we can help to engage some of the issues that might lead to interpersonal violence.” Justice system professionals, activists, and community organizers all agree that empowering ex-offenders is one of the best ways to rebuild communities and keep people from re-offending. But more than 5.8 million Americans – 1 in 13 Black Americans – are disenfranchised because of their criminal offenses, according to The Sentencing Project, a nonpartisan research and advocacy group for criminal justice reform. In effect, the people most affected by criminal justice policies are excluded from shaping policy decisions. Though having a criminal record is no longer rare – 1 in 3 Americans has one – employers are generally unwilling to hire ex -offenders. For decades, formerly incarcerated people have pushed to “ban the box” on job applications that require applicants to disclose past convictions. It’s often used to disqualify otherwise qualified candidates. The “ban the box” effort is gaining official traction, largely through state laws and updated guidelines from the federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. But unless an applicant launches and wins a lawsuit, there are few repercussions for employers who dismiss applicants on this basis. “What

happens is, you have all of these folks who come home and they feel alienated from society, and they don’t feel like there’s any place for them,” said Pastor Darren A. Ferguson at the CAP event. Ferguson leads Mount Carmel Baptist Church in Far Rockaway, N.Y. and works to provide reentry support. The community organizer is also an ex-offender who spent nearly nine years in the New York corrections system. “They can’t get jobs because they’re afraid to go to a job interview, because they’re going to ask them that magic question that frightens anybody who’s been incarcerated: ‘have you ever been convicted of a crime?’ And there’s a feeling across the board – there’s no place for me, there’s no hope for me, so what else can I do?” The laws that created mass incarceration have not only failed to make provisions for mass reentry, but have also devastated Black families and communities. Department of Justice data from 2007 found that 6.7 percent of Black children had at least one incarcerated parent, compared to less than 1 percent of White children and 2.3 percent of Latino children. Among today’s Black twenty-somethings, 1 in 4 had a parent incarcerated during their childhood, according to CAP research. Another study from The Sentencing Project finds that nearly half of all Black women have a currently incarcerated family member, compared to just 11 percent of White women. Alicia Garza, awardwinning community organizer and co-founder of the national Black Lives Matter organization says that part of empowering exoffenders is to find ways to restore their voice. “Part of that is having those folks shape what the policies, practices, and systems look like. Because nobody knows better how to shift the trend of criminalization than those who have been criminalized,” she said at the same CAP event. “Not only

do we need to center those voices, but we need to put those who have been directly impacted by the systems we’re facing in positions of power. Folks actually need to be able to make decisions that impact their lives.” Voting is not the only way to raise one’s political voice. Pastor Michael McBride, a San Francisco-based community organizer and a program director within the PICO Network, an organization of religious leaders working for social justice, who

was also part of the CAP event. He points out that elected officials are often bending to the whims of private entities. “Many of these things happen under the cover of night. A lot of our Fortune 500 companies are actually profiting off of private prison labor, and other forms of legalized slavery. And I think we can shame them publicly in a way that at least creates some form of accountability, and we need to do the same thing with elected officials,” he explained. “We have the responsibility to make it known, and then we have another opportunity to hold them accountable through our voting, through where we shop, through our support, et cetera.” The tide is slowly turning against mass incarceration and unfair sentencing polices. In 2008, then-President George W. Bush signed the Second Chance Act into law, which gives tax perks to employers that hire ex-offenders. In 2010 President Barack Obama signed the

Fair Sentencing Act, which significantly reduced the sentencing disparity between crack-cocaine and powder cocaine. And last year, the U.S. Sentencing Commission voted unanimously to raise the mandatory minimum threshold for drugrelated offenses, and allow appeals for reduced sentences under the new guidelines. Still, Black communities do not have to wait to have these disparities corrected by authorities. “I am thankful for those working at the federal level trying to move things forward there, but…. It takes so long before my day-to-day reality is impacted by something whoever is in the White House signs,” Rev. Brown said. “We have to continue to build for power socially, economically, politically so that we can … say, no more will we rely on the benevolence of a system that has an appetite for our destruction to decide our destiny. No more.”

NATIONAL/STATE & REGIONAL NEWS Bennett Elementary Teacher 'Relieved of Her Duties' After Posting about McKinney Incident By Ashlyn Tubbs Fromwmcactionnews5.com LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) A fourth grade teacher at Bennett Elementary has been 'relieved of her duties' by the Frenship Independent School District after she posted her opinions about the McKinney pool party incident on her Facebook page. Karen Fitzgibbons shared an article to her profile stating she was "ANGRY" that police corporal Eric Casebolt resigned. In the post, she made several references to "the blacks" as being the cause for problems and "racial tension." Her post read as follows: "This makes me ANGRY! This officer should not have to resign. I'm going to just go ahead and say it...the blacks are the ones causing the problems and this "racial tension." I guess that's what happens when you flunk out of school and have no education. I'm sure their parents are just as guilty for not knowing what their kids were doing; or knew it and didn't care. I'm almost to the point of wanting them all segregated on one side of town so they can hurt each other and leave the innocent people alone. Maybe the 50s and 60s were really on to something. Now, let the bashing of my true and honest opinion begin...GO! #imnotreacist #imsickofthemcausingtrouble #itwasagatedcommunity" When asked about the post on Wednesday, Fitzgibbons acknowledged it but said she already took it down. She had "no comment" about it, but thanked KCBD for taking an interest. Fitzgibbons published on her LinkedIn account that she has worked for Bennett Elementary since 1999. Frenship spokesman Andy Penney sent us this statement about the issue: All FISD employees are subject to district policies (DH Local) defining employee standards of conduct and electronic media practices. Below is a portion of the FISD Employee Handbook that discusses Employee Personal Use of Electronic Media: PERSONAL USE OF ELECTRONIC MEDIA Policy DH Electronic media includes all forms of social media, such as text messaging, instant messaging, electronic mail (e-mail), Web logs (blogs), electronic forums (chat rooms), video-sharing Web sites (e.g., YouTube), editorial comments posted on the Internet, and social network sites (e.g., Facebook, MySpace, Twitter, LinkedIn). Electronic media also includes all forms of telecommunication such as landlines, cell phones, and Web-based applications.

As role models for the district's students, employees are responsible for their public conduct even when they are not acting as district employees. Employees will be held to the same professional standards in their public use of electronic media as they are for any other public conduct. If an employee's use of electronic media interferes with the employee's ability to effectively perform his or her job duties, the employee is subject to disciplinary action, up to and including termination of employment. Issues dealing with employee use of social media are appropriately handled based on the policies of FISD. Fitzgibbons issued this apology on Thursday: First, to anyone, of any race, that I have offended, I sincerely apologize. That was not my intent. I let my emotions get the best of me, and instead of taking a deep breath, vented in an inappropriate way. I am truly sorry. I don't want my comments to reflect poorly on my district or campus, as the words came from me, not them. Frenship and Bennett are amazing places full of people (teachers, administrators, custodial staff, cafeteria staff, parents, and others) who love, care about, and go the extra mile for all students, regardless of race. As a teacher and lifelong educator, I strive to do the same. I always tell my students that once they are my student, they will always be my child. As an educator, I do teach my students about treating all people fairly and with dignity. I regret that my words are now calling that into question.

I can, and will, use this situation as a real world example of how emotions and words can cause hurt to others. I am ashamed of my post. As I look back and reflect, I see how hurtful those words sounded. It is my hope that my sincere apology will be accepted. Thank you, Karen Fitzgibbons Frenship ISD issued this statement on Thursday: "On Wednesday afternoon, Frenship Independent School District was made aware of a statement posted on a Facebook page by a Frenship ISD employee earlier this week. Frenship ISD is deeply disappointed in the thoughtlessness conveyed by this employee's post. We find these statements to be extremely offensive, insensitive, and disrespectful to our Frenship community and citizens everywhere. These comments in no way represent the educational environment we have created for our students. The employee whose account is responsible for the post will be relieved of her teaching duties at Frenship ISD. We hold our employees responsible for their public conduct even when they are not on active duty as district employees. Employees are held to the same professional standards in their public use of electronic media as they are for any other public conduct. This recent conduct was unacceptable. Frenship ISD hopes communities, parents and students understand that these remarks do not reflect the views of our district, teachers and staff."
