Into the wee hours of Wednesday morning, we watched as Texas Senators Wendy Davis, Leticia R. Van de Putte, state Representatives Senfronia Thompson and Jessica Farrar rallied young people, women and activists from across Texas in the face of one of the worst anti-choice bills ever proposed.
Join us in thanking them for their support. We need more politicians like them in office - willing to defend reproductive rights!

A white college student from a private college goes into a poor neighborhood and volunteers four hours a week and that’s considered exemplary. [Whereas] a poor kid who lives in that community and takes care of all the kids in that neighborhood four hours every day is not seen as a volunteer.

I HATE the concept of community service that high schools and colleges use. For this exact reason. Real activism and service (that is primarily done by the oppressed out of necessity or in support of their own community) is never counted.

Happy 50th Anniversary of the Equal Pay Act! (sort of). Here are some sobering visuals: For every dollar earned by a white man in America, a white woman earns, on average, 77 cents, a black woman earns 69 cents, and a Latina woman earns 57 cents.

Jury nullification. Pass it on.

Jury nullification is so fucking important.

This is something that more people should be aware of, if only because (in many states, at least) defense attorneys are actually prohibited from mentioning it to jurors. The law allows a jury to return a “not guilty” verdict contrary to the facts of the case, but not for the defense to inform them of that power or to argue for its application in the current trial.

Wait, what? Jurors don’t get told this? Why the everloving fuck not?
