We're going to spend some time now marking the third anniversary of the fatal police shooting of 18-year-old Michael Brown. On August 9, 2014, Brown was shot and killed by Police Officer Darren Wilson in Ferguson, Mo., just outside of St. Louis. UNIDENTIFIED JOURNALIST #1: Grief and anger in a St. Louis area community today after a teen was shot and killed by police. WOLF BLITZER: Michael Brown. UNIDENTIFIED JOURNALIST #2: That is correct. UNIDENTIFIED JOURNALIST #3: This is not the Middle East.

ROBERT MCCULLOCH: No probable cause exists to file any charge against Officer Wilson. UNIDENTIFIED MAN: He got away with murder. SMITH: Brown was unarmed. So today, we thought we'd gather a few voices to reflect on this anniversary and look at how those events shaped Ferguson and the country then and now.

Then his words turned sledgehammer blunt. “This isn’t our first rodeo with the forces of genocide,” said Goldtooth, a great-grandfather with long black braids sticking out from under the hooded sweatshirt he wore beneath a canvas Carhartt jacket.

Goldtooth sees the pipeline as a threat to the drinking water of thousands downstream. And he sees it as another effort by corporations — backed by the power of the government and expected support of Trump — to trample indigenous people as they have for “hundreds of years of colonial oppression.” “This pipeline represents something deeper,” Goldtooth said. “We have to start worrying about the rights of our future generations. We have to start looking at making a just transition as a society away from a fossil fuel economy.” Goldtooth was raised on a Navajo reservation in New Mexico, the grandson of a tribal medicine man and the son of a pioneering Navajo woman who earned a college degree in microbiology.

Borderlands are special spaces where cultures meet and mix, where diverse communities blend within the overlapping edges of two worlds.

This is especially true in the U.S. -Mexico borderlands because the region lies along a natural boundary as well as a geopolitical border. Where the United States meets Mexico, a 2,000-mile stretch of land bridges the tropical and temperate zones. Here jaguars and ocelots share the landscape with their northerly cousins, the cougar and bobcat. Green jays, Altamira orioles and elegant trogons perch side-by-side on mesquite, ebony, and cottonwood branches with northern cardinals and mockingbirds. This is a landscape of wild surprise, shared equitably by the north and south of the natural world. The borderlands harbor some of North America’s rarest wild species and oldest human cultures, descendants of the Hohokam, Lipan-Apache and Spanish colonial families – all of whom predate the United States’ existence as a nation.

Campaign Proposals – Ohio University Strategic Social Media. After a thorough analysis, it is clear that COSI’s social media presence needs improving as a whole. We decided it was necessary to restructure the initial objective of the analysis from increasing awareness of one event, Up All Night, to increasing the awareness of all events at COSI. We plan to do this multiple different ways, such as promoting and broadcasting events more effectively by using social media. Team COSI from left — Jonah Ort, Katie Abbott, Scotty Moore Overall Objective: Increase awareness of COSI’s events by 30% within 3 months by measuring engagement of event-related posts on Instagram, Twitter, and Snapchat. Our proposal has multiple stages that we believe will achieve, even surpass, the overall objective. First, Twitter will be a live feed of all events taking place at COSI. To support these three stages, we have built out a three month comprehensive social media posting calendar.

Lesson: Understanding Universe of Obligation. This lesson uses resources from Chapter 2 of Holocaust and Human Behavior to prompt students to explore the ways that individuals, groups, communities, and nations define who belongs and who does not. The activities that follow examine what it means to belong by introducing the idea of a “universe of obligation,” the term sociologist Helen Fein coined to describe the circle of individuals and groups within a society “toward whom obligations are owed, to whom rules apply, and whose injuries call for amends.”[1] A society’s universe of obligation can change. Individuals and groups that are respected and protected members of a society at one time may find themselves outside the universe of obligation when circumstances are different.

Societies with governments dedicated to democratic values and human rights tend to define their universes of obligation in a more expansive and inclusive manner than other societies do. Helen Fein, Accounting for Genocide (New York: Free Press, 1979), 4. Media Theorised | Al Jazeera English. When Immigrants Are No Longer Considered Americans. When my grandfather died, in 2014, at ninety-six, my mother asked me if I wanted anything from the small, one-bedroom apartment that he and my grandmother, who had died a few years earlier, shared for nearly their entire American lives. Thinking about a tangible object that I could hold and cherish felt vaguely therapeutic, a way to displace more recent memories of a voice that had hoarsened and a proud handshake that had ceased to be viselike and painful.

At some point, he had taken a ceramics class at the local community center. He had come home with a planter in the shape of an Uncle Sam hat. I loved its imperfections, its impractically large size, and all the dents and imprints that gave such a kitschy item a feeling of history. I liked imagining an entire class full of seniors all adding their own flourishes to a cornucopia of ceramic Uncle Sam hats. They had come to the United States from Taiwan in the nineteen-eighties, a decade after my parents. Hyphen-Nation. Watch - Firelight Media.

Our community-centered arts education initiatives take place through hands-on art workshops and public programs at local laundromats and other community spaces. The focus of this work is to make art education more readily available to all our community members— regardless of income, age, or background. We believe it is a basic human right to use our imaginations in the service of a better life. Every summer, we offer a weekly series of free drop-in art workshops, which take place in Harlem, Bedford-Stuyvesant, and Hunts Point. In addition to our laundromat-based art classes, we also offer a variety of workshops at street festivals and community-based organizations.

What is a Nation? “The migration of people between one nation and another is challenging long-held assumptions about who belongs.” Merriam-Webster’s dictionary defines a nation as: a politically organized nationality . . . A community of people composed of one or more nation- alities and possessing a more or less defined territory and government a territorial division containing a body of people of one or more nationalities and usually characterized by relatively large size and independent status.

In his influential 1882 essay “What Is a Nation?” French philosopher Ernest Renan wrote about the bonds that hold nations together. He explained, “A heroic past, great men, glory [are the links between people] upon which one bases a national idea. . . . Others have stressed language, ethnicity, or even pseudo- scientific ideas about “race.” The way that many nations officially recognize that people belong is by allowing them to become citizens.

An unprecedented 65.3 million people around the world have been forced from home. Among them are nearly 21.3 million refugees, over half of whom are under the age of 18. There are also 10 million stateless people who have been denied a nationality and access to basic rights such as education, healthcare, employment and freedom of movement . . .; 34,000 people are forcibly displaced every day as a result of conflict or persecution. . . . ”1 This lesson asks students to consider the ethical and legal implications of the global refugee crisis and what those implications mean in terms of our human responsibilities. According to the United Nations High Commission for Refugees, the number of refugees they considered to be “of concern” by the middle of 2015 was already approximately 15.1 million, the most in 20 years.

Warsan Shire, "Home" Warsan Shire was born in Kenya to Somali parents and lives in London. She is a poet, writer, editor and teacher. In 2013-2014, she was the Young Poet Laureate for London. Shire wrote “Conversations about home (at a deportation centre)” in 2009, a piece inspired by a visit she made to the abandoned Somali Embassy in Rome which some young refugees had turned into their home. In an interview, she told the reporter that “The night before she visited, a young Somali had jumped to his death off the roof.” This poem became the basis for “Home,” printed below. Please note that this poem includes language and topics that require special consideration from the teacher and students. In an interview after she won the Brunel University African Poetry Prize, Warsan Shire was asked to talk about her sense of commitment to substance and urgent subject matter in her work.

Rawls' Mature Theory of Social Justice: A Introduction for Students. The use of underscore for emphasis is mine, unless otherwise explicitly noted. --JG 1. Introduction John Rawls is widely regarded as one of the most important political philosophers of the second half of the twentieth century. He is primarily known for his theory of justice as fairness, which develops principles of justice to govern a modern social order. Darrel Moellendorf writes that Rawls' conception of justice, like any conception of justice whatsoever, is an associational conception. Rawls' theory urges us to conceive of society "as a fair system of cooperation over time, from one generation to the next.

" 2. John Rawls develops a conception of justice from the perspective that persons are free and equal. A sense of justice is "the capacity to understand, to apply, and to act from the public conception of justice which characterizes the fair terms of cooperation. " A conception of the good includes "a conception of what is valuable in human life. " 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. I. 11. 12.
