"A call for voters to go and kind of police other voters at the polls ... has a very problematic history in our country that goes back to Jim Crow, where we have seen a lot of very zealous policing at the polls that actually at the end of day results in intimidation."

– Jennifer Clark, counsel with the Brennan Center for Justice Democracy Program, on presidential candidate Donald Trump's plan to have his supporters monitor election polls

After the Republican party won a number of key elections for governorships and control of state legislatures across the U.S. in 2010, 21 states passed an assortment of new laws that make it more difficult for specific groups of citizens to vote. These measures include restrictive voter ID laws, reduction in the days and hours of early voting, obstacles placed on registering new voters and accessing absentee ballots.  Story continues

MP3 Interview with Shane Burley, co-author, along with Alexander Reid Ross, of the article, "How the Alt-Right is trying to create a 'safe space' for racism on college campuses,", conducted by Scott Harris

Bannon and others on the “alternative right,” or alt-right movement, have no consistent or officially recognized ideology, although commonly held views include opposition to multiculturalism, immigration and feminism – as well as an affinity for white nationalism, white supremacy, anti-Semitism and nativism.  Story continues

City Promotes Dialogue on Climate Change as Essential Prerequisite to Action

MP3 Interview with Chris Schweitzer, organizer with New Haven’s Healthy City, Healthy Climate Challenge, and, program director with the New Haven/Leon Sister City Project, conducted by Melinda Tuhus

climate

Renowned climate scientist James Hansen and other experts have long insisted that the level of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere cannot remain above 350 parts per million if we hope to maintain any semblance of life on earth as we have known it. That warning was underscored when the level of carbon dioxide surpassed 400 parts per million for the entire month of September 2016. In fact, every month for the past three decades has seen hotter than average temperatures.  Story continues
