The OpEd Project Whoever Tells the Story Writes History // Read us on our Byline Blog http://bit.ly/TROoPn // Follow us on our Twitter https://twitter.com/TheOpEdProject
The OpEd Project is a social venture founded to enrich and expand the world's conversation, by increasing the range of voices we hear from in the world--especially women's voices. Working with top universities, think tanks, nonprofits, corporations and community organizations across the nation, we scout and train women and other under-represented experts to take thought leadership positions in their fields (though op-eds and more); we connect them with our national network of high-level media mentors; and we vet and channel the best ideas directly to media gatekeepers across all platforms. We also offer day-long program open to the public in major cities across the nation, on a rotating basis.

Congrata to prof Kate Landdeck (an early OpEd Project #publicvoices fellow) on her new book, "The Women with Silver Wings," on the true story of the WASP in their years of service between 1942-44 and beyond. 👏👏#TXwomans #TWU

THE WOMEN WITH SILVER WINGS: At the height of World War II, more than a thousand women left their homes and jobs for the opportunity of a lifetime--to become the first in history to fly for the U.S. military.

They volunteered as civilian pilots in an experimental Army Air Corp program to see if women could serve as pilots and relieve men for overseas duty. These women became the Women Airforce Service Pilots of World War II, better known as the WASP.

A Texas Woman's professor just released a new book about their incredible story. Kate Landdeck's book, "The Women with Silver Wings," covers this true story in their years of service between 1942-44 and beyond.

"I always wondered, so what happened to Rosie the Riveter when she went home? What did they do next? So that's one of the things I like about my book is that I take them into the post-war years, the 1950s and 60s and the work that they did trying to fly and all the way through the 70s and their fight to be recognized as veterans," says Landdeck in a recent DentonRadio.com interview.

Watch at https://www.facebook.com/DentonRadio/videos/2968977023162784/ or https://youtu.be/tiqC0HsZj1I.

Additionally, the official WASP archive lives at #TXWomans in Denton -- the 2nd floor of the Texas Woman's University Libraries. The WASP Archive at Texas Woman's University includes oral histories, letters, diaries, photographs and more -- much of which is available digitally at https://twu.edu/library/womans-collection/collections/women-airforce-service-pilots/.

"It's a real treasure for the whole country but certainly Denton right here at the university," says Landdeck.

Dr. Sharon Inouye, a world expert on delirium, describes herself as a Geriatrician, Researcher, Harvard University Professor, Health and Aging Policy Fellow, delirium expert, chief troublemaker, wife, mother and friend. She is also a The OpEd Project Public Voices Fellow with Encore.org ⠀

Her piece “The Epidemic Within the Pandemic: Delirium”, in Sunday’s The New York Times, has had a huge impact. Dr. Inouye says: “We hit a nerve…action! In response to the op-ed several major hospitals have contacted—they are reexamining their policies for persons with delirium and dementia. A staffer from the Senate Subcommittee on Aging reached out. Family members have reached out.”⠀

“The 2016 election began my unexpected journey to becoming a Livermore City Council member. A 2017 The OpEd Project “Write to Change the World” workshop gave me the skills and confidence to write an op-ed on a local issue for the San Francisco Chronicle. The reaction to that op-ed affected the issue’s outcome and ultimately spurred me to run for office in 2018. Since being elected, I have worked on issues large and small: regional #housing, cleaner #energy, local #homelessness, #inclusiveness, and local #climate solutions. Yet my primary goal will always be encouraging civic knowledge and engagement. Now I continue writing to #educate and encourage Livermore residents through this difficult time. I hope others follow this path: local representation matters!”⠀

Sejal Hathi is a resident doctor at Massachusetts General Hospital, and an The OpEd Project and clinical fellow at Harvard Medical School working to build a more just and equitable health system. Entwining a years-long penchant for entrepreneurship with deep passion for policy, she fights for a world where #health is not hoarded as a privilege by the few but is democratized with intention as the birthright of all people.⠀

“Health care workers across this country are facing a critical shortage of the masks, gowns, personal protective equipment we need to fight the ‪#coronavirus‬,” @sejalhathi writes after she joined @poppyharlowcnn on @cnn Newsroom to discuss why this matters. ⠀

Like many of our colleagues, we are staying at home to help flatten the curve. We have moved online and are now running all our programs completely virtually. We are offering FREE resources, “pay what you can” webinars, and virtual workshops that are open to everyone, of all identities and positions, regardless of means. As always, we seek to overrepresent the underrepresented, including women.⠀

We have made a huge investment in public health, and are working with doctors, nurses, emergency responders around the country, on the front lines. Our goal is to ensure their knowledge, and yours, shapes what happens next. This is an unprecedented moment in our history that requires all our brainpower, and all our experience, and all our resources to get to a solution - and we are doing all we can, in every way we can, to speed that process up. If you believe in this work, as we do, we ask you to support us in accelerating these voices working toward a solution. ⠀

Greta Thunberg is a Swedish environmental activist who has gained international recognition for talking about the #climatecrisis ⠀

At 15 years old, Greta begun her school strike for climate every Friday. This movement started to expand and one year later, on 2019, there were multiple coordinated city protest that involved millions of students. ⠀

She rapidly became the #leader of the climate movement, as well as a target for critics. So far, she has received numerous honors and awards such as inclusion in the Forbes list of The World’s 100 Most Powerful Women (2019). ⠀

“I was diagnosed with Asperger’s syndrome, OCD and selective mutism. That basically means I only speak when I think it’s necessary. Now is one of those moments”, she said in her TEDx Talk in November 2018.⠀

Congratulations to our new 2020 Climate Crisis #PublicVoices Fellows from the Yale Program on Climate Change Communication — 20 thought leaders working at the intersections of climate change science, impacts, solutions, and social justice.

"Just as we are seeing now with COVID-19, the climate crisis affects all of us, but its impacts are unevenly and unjustly distributed. Those with the greatest power to mitigate and adapt to climate change often have the least incentive to do so, across geography, wealth, age, race, and gender."

What rules the earth ? Info angel. The worlds are the ever-living deities of Creation, target Times for centuries, and us with eternal lives. Deities of Creation is Completely changed, the Board is not subject. The life of humans is not at the scenario of man, our desires. And those that laid on the spiritual and energy level in the soul, the destiny of man, the people, the way to God. Eternity had No one, Nothing lost, everything Was, Is and Will be at Centuries did not shift, his time. In God of the dead does not exist. The body is perishable, eternal life through reincarnation. The share did not shift to rule the earth, it is the wish, control the lives of earthlings. Trust the fate of their. You have a lot of life paths? Which way to go? No matter how VI go, you're on your way. Passed you many times on the eternal path to God. The first level is over, the war between peoples. At the same time, the war eternally thundering in the lands of the first level, and dinosaurs running around the lands of 1-2 levels. Fighting takes place for a hundred years, the time of the collapse of the evil Empire to the Nations that captured her. Constraint of God's Creation applies to the aggressor in Ukraine, he did everything to capture her, she lay at his feet. And now not lost his desire, concentrating forces around Ukraine. But you can't do it, not everything depends on his desire. He could not divide the Ukrainian people and the grounders. Unfortunately its Janissaries - populists divided the Ukrainian people into friends and foes, identifying itself to patriotism. In God's Creation, a Union of peoples, earthlings is by FORGIVENESS, asking for forgiveness for his actions, intentional and not intentional, forgiving others. No other way. Earthlings are by me, understanding the essence of development of the peoples of the first level. God is the Creator, not judging. He does not judge his creation, but gives a chance for correction. God forgives and tells us. The faith of Nations races in the one God will unite earthlings. Empire is not of Gods Creation, and grasping the hands of the aggressor. In Russia not to forgive someone. Russia will come with maps of Earthlings, like the Soviet Union and other empires. It will be an enclave Muscovy with new generations, not waging war. For 200 years process of disintegration for China, the EU, NATO, USA and others in accordance with God's partition of the lands of the Nations. The peoples will live in this God's Earth in peace and friendship, will flourish in the spiritual, conversational and traditions of the peoples worldly States.

Why is the Media allowed to Discriminate by reporting and not allowing Racism against Black people while at the same time promoting Racism against Native Americans? DICTIONARY.COM REDSKIN – [Red-skin] Noun, A disparaging and offensive contemptuous term used to refer to a North American Indian. N-WORD – Noun, A disparaging and offensive contemptuous term used to refer to a black person. Over the years, Native Americans have faced racist slurs thrown at them from medias all over the country every football season. During that same time, another minority has been protected against racism by the same medias. One must ask himself, how is it that two different minorities can be treated differently without discrimination being involved. The answer is… they can’t. I believe that this matter should be handled by the courts to find out if it is legal to discriminate between minorities. Many people wonder how the name Redskin came about. It is part of America’s terrible past just like Slavery. When the government was paying bounties for the dead bodies of Native Americans to remove them, so they could take their land. The first posters said the word Indian bodies and told how much was to be paid for the body of a man, woman, or child. The Church spoke out against this, not against the killing of Native Americans, but the word body being used. They felt it was too similar to the Body of Christ. Since they saw Native Americans as being animals, not human, the same way they saw black people who were their slaves. They had the word body removed. They decided that since these people are animals and not human that their dead bodies should be the same as animals. When you kill a deer and bring in its dead bloody carcass, we call it a deerskin. A bear, we call it a bearskin. So, from now on the bloody dead carcass of these animals will be called Redskin! It is up to our courts to defend against discrimination to all Americans in this country and therefore on that ground these Native Americans are entitled to the same rights as Black Americans. When they are not, then that is discrimination. When one minority group is favored with favoritism where they are not subject to racist slurs by an entity, but that same entity subjects another minority with racist slurs, that is unlawful discrimination. By a company not allowing the N-word that is offensive to Black people, while allowing the word Redskin that is offensive to another minority that is favoritism discrimination in the obvious form of the law. On the ground of harassment, inappropriate insults, name-calling, verbally, written, or poster or cartoon directed at a person based on their race, color, or nationality, this is discrimination How long will it take before we stand up against hatred and racist people of all people? Will it take the Supreme Court in order to assure us that all minorities are protected, or no minority is protected against racist slurs. - Gregory St. James Mundy - Help us to see that the Media respect all minorities, and they do not have the right to pick and choose when it comes to Racism! https://www.gofundme.com/racism-comes-in-many-colors

I was fortunate enough to take part in the Op Ed Project workshop at UIC with Michele Weldon and Neil Young back in September. Happy to say the Chicago Tribune is publishing my Op Ed on Monday, November 12!! Thank you!😊
Fellow mentor-editors! What's your experience with submitting the same piece to several smaller regional papers whose circulations don't overlap, like say the Atlanta Constitution and the San Francisco Gate?
Finally, my first published Op-Ed. Thanks for your guidance!
