What a powerful photo that was on the cover of the last edition of The Washington Informer. It was truly one of those moments worth a thousand words: the pink casket and the messages on the hoodie. We must bring attention to environmental racism to our elected leaders and make them do their jobs.

Learn to Forgive

I cannot believe there are people in this country (Republicans) who have a problem with student loan relief. What sense does that make? And now a judge has temporarily blocked the order. Why? What’s the difference between this loan forgiveness and the various other forgiveness programs? I can’t help but think it’s because of who will be positively impacted.
