U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service releases another inadequate revision to Mexican Gray Wolf Recovery Plan
4/21/2022 2:34:36 PM

Albuquerque, NM—Today, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) released a revised Mexican Gray Wolf Recovery Plan that once again fails to adequately address the most immediate threat facing the critical recovery needs of the most imperiled wolf subspecies in the world: illegal killings. The revised plan comes in response to a court order from October 2021, when a federal district court judge ruled that the USFWS failed to include specific actions addressing human-caused mortality of Mexican gray wolves. Currently, human-caused mortality is the leading cause of death for the...

Celebrating a season of hope
4/21/2022 12:22:45 PM

By Marian Wright Edelman   On April 7, the Senate confirmed Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson as the next Supreme Court Justice of the United States and the first Black woman justice, marking a new era of progress in our nation. For the first time in American history white men will not be the majority on our Supreme Court. It is slowly becoming more representative of all of us. In her remarks at the White House the next day, Judge Jackson spoke gratefully about the overwhelming number of encouraging messages she received from people across the country and world during her confirmation...

‘A Morally Inclement Climate’
4/13/2022 2:25:39 PM

By Marian Wright Edelman   April 4th was the 54th anniversary of the assassination of our nation’s prophet of nonviolence, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. On the same day we received new warnings from international scientists that our world remains headed towards an environmental climate catastrophe, this date was a sad reminder that before his death, Dr. King presciently warned us about a metaphorical climate crisis that also threatened us all. Shortly after President John F. Kennedy’s 1963 assassination, Dr. King wrote that it was time for our nation to do some...

I’d give her a piece of my mind if I had any to spare
4/13/2022 2:24:23 PM

By Dr. James L. Snyder   I do not know if grouchy comes with old age or if in old age you are too weak to subdue it. My grouchy seems to be getting out of control. Driving across town the other day I ran into, almost literally, some driver not watching where she was going. Barely missing her, I noticed she was talking on her cell phone. I am quite sure she did not even see me. I wanted to stop everything, get out of my car and give her a good piece of my mind. But I didn’t. Instead, I decided to go to a little café for a cup of coffee. Nothing soothes my...

EXPLAINER: What's behind the new federal anti-lynching law?
4/7/2022 12:49:46 PM

President Joe Biden on Tuesday signed into law the first bill that specifies lynching as a federal hate crime. The Emmett Till Anti-Lynching Act, which Congress passed on March 7, enables the prosecution of crimes as lynchings if they are done during a hate crime in which the victim is injured or slain. The new law carries a maximum sentence of 30 years in prison and fines for anyone conspiring to commit an act of lynching that causes death or injury. The House approved the bill 422-3 with eight members not voting. The Senate passed the bill by unanimous consent. Illinois Democratic...

A switch in time on my behind
4/7/2022 12:14:31 PM

Dr. James L. Snyder   When growing up, spankings were normal. And, for someone like me, those spankings were quite regular. Today my father would be arrested for all the spankings he gave me while I was growing up. At that time, something was wrong if you didn’t get a spanking. When I was in the fifth grade, my schoolteacher happened to have been my father’s schoolteacher. I’m afraid she wouldn’t pass today because she also believed in spankings, as did our elementary school principal. Home rule was simple; if I get a spanking at school, I get a...

The Emmett Till Antilynching Act: Remedy at last
4/7/2022 11:26:43 AM

By Marian Wright Edelman   On March 29, President Joe Biden signed the Emmett Till Antilynching Act into law, making lynching a federal hate crime. An act can now be prosecuted as a lynching and punishable by up to 30 years in prison if a person conspires to commit a hate crime that results in death, serious bodily injury, and other harms. This legislation was more than a century in the making, after decades of lawmakers’ systematic and shameful success in blocking more than 200 earlier attempts at similar bills. The new law is named in honor of Emmett Till, the...

The invisible backbone leaders of transforming social change
4/1/2022 6:24:59 PM

By Marian Wright Edelman   Women’s History Month is a reminder that in every major American social reform movement, women have always played a critical role. Women at the forefront, acting as the catalyst for progress when it needs to happen, make the front pages and the history books. But women have also always been the invisible backbone, unseen but strong, of transforming social movements and of all anchor institutions in society—our families, congregations, schools, and communities—employing behind the scenes quiet essential leadership and organizational,...
