Congrats to #GirlHero Malala Yousafzai for being the youngest Nobel Peace Prize Winner!
If you’re a woman in South Texas trying to get a safe, legal abortion, your options are limited. If you’re undocumented, it’s now almost impossible.
Undocumented women who cross an inland border patrol checkpoint to get an abortion risk deportation. Because of new restrictions, only eight clinics remain in the whole state.
None fall below the wall of checkpoints.
The Black Bisexual Experience
presented to the National Black Justice Coalition’s (NBJC) 5th Annual "OUT on the Hill" Black LGBT Leadership Summit
September 2014, Hart Senate Building, Washington DC by BiNet USA
Says Faith Cheltenham, President of BiNet USA, "On the 2nd day of the NBJC Out on the Hill Conference I was honored to present one of the very first presentation/panel discussions on the black bisexual experience from inside Capitol Hill’s Hart Senate Building.”
More than 3,000 people have registered to vote in Ferguson, Mo., since the death of Michael Brown — a surge in interest that may mean the city of 21,000 people is ready for a change.
Since a white police officer shot the unarmed black 18-year-old on Aug. 9, voter registration booths and cards have popped up alongside protests in the city and surrounding neighborhoods. The result: 4,839 people in St. Louis County have registered to vote since the shooting; 3,287 of them live in Ferguson.
The city’s population is two-thirds African American; five of its six city council members are white, as is its mayor. The St. Louis County Election Board does not record the races of eligible voters, but many believe the increase is a sign that Brown’s death has spurred renewed interest in politics and might mean more blacks will vote in the upcoming election.
