The Racial Justice Alliance announces the 2020 Legislative Series and the kick-off our Statewide “Hidden in Plain Sight” Community Tour. The Legislative Series is created to provide a forum to educate community members and gain their perspectives while informing legislator’s decisions on policy. The Series will run through the legislative session and all forums will be conducted in room 10 in the Statehouse, from 5:30 PM till 7:30 PM. The first forum of the Legislative Series, “Hidden in Plain Sight” will also be presented on a community tour across the state. Learn more about the “Hidden in Plain Sight” Community Tour here. Hidden in Plain Sight: The Truth About Systemic Racism The Vermont Attorney General And Human Rights Commission Task Force on Act 54 Racial Disparities in State Systems Report in 2017 indicated that “In addition, and likely related to the income disparities, racial disparities have been documented in each of the areas identified in Act 54 (education, labor and employment, housing, healthcare and economic development).” Until we can gain a common understanding of how and why this is happening, there is limited potential for true transformation. Through personal stories and aided with the research of national experts on the matter, Racial Justice Alliance Coordinator, Mark Hughes unpacks systemic racism from several perspectives and discusses solutions. The Legislative Series scheduled forums include: 23 January 2020 – Making the Justice System Work with Data 13 February 2020 – Reparations in Vermont: Is that a Thing? 27 February 2020 – Use Of Force: How Much is Enough and How do We Know It? 19 March 2020 – Who’s Watching the Police? 26 March 2020 – Slavery: Bound By Law For Payment

Please investigate this. This is absolutely disgusting.
Iranian General Qassem Soleimani women brutally murdered under his tactics internally in Iran. On December 15, 2019, the Iranian Resistance announced that the number of those killed by security forces during Iran protests exceeded 1,500. At least 4,000 were wounded and at least 12,000 detained. Then on December 23, 2019, citing sources within the clerical regime, Reuters confirmed that 1,500 people had been killed in Iran during less than two weeks of unrest that started on November 15. Reuters was told that about 400 women and 17 teenagers were among those killed. The Iranian officials who provided the figures to Reuters, said they were based on information gathered from security forces, morgues, hospitals and coroner’s offices.
