(Photo: Diego Lozano, Creative Director at Aliento) For its recipients, Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals was more than a piece of plastic. It enabled us to finally live without fear and imagine a future where we could provide for ourselves. Now that it appears that the Democrats have abandoned us once again, we call upon all people of conscience to raise their voices in defense of the Dreamers. All people of conscience must demand that Congress act now. (Photo: Diego Lozano, Creative Director at Aliento) Stories like this are more important than ever!

Today is day 142 of the vigil demanding response to Indigenous youth suicide crisis 9.12.2017 rabble.ca - News for the rest of us
Rachel Small Today marks the 142nd day that a continuous 24-hour vigil has been maintained outside of the Indigenous and Northern Affairs Canada office in downtown Toronto. Under the slogan #NOMIC (Not One More Indigenous Child) the vigil has been honoring victims of the ongoing Indigenous youth suicide crisis and demanding real, meaningful responses. That's over four months of the organizers suspending their lives in order to sleep, eat, and spend their days outside in variable ­-- and increasingly frigid -- weather. They have been tirelessly holding space with their bodies to serve as a visual reminder that Indigenous youth are dying and it is urgent that the government stop stalling and take action. The suicide crisis affecting First Nations communities is not a new problem. And despite many promises of reconciliation and rebuilding relationships, both provincial and federal governments have dragged their feet in taking any kind of action. As the organizers of the vigil explain, "There has been report ...

This City Found a Way to Get Everyone Involved in Urban Planning 27.10.2017 Truthout.com
When Monica Palmquist moved to Cortez, Colorado, in 2010, she was shocked to find that the Hispanic population in a town with a Spanish name had almost no presence in the community's civic life. Born in Mexico, Palmquist had spent most of her life in the United States, in cities where the Hispanic community was visible and active. In Cortez, where she worked as a community organizer, they were rarely ever seen. The community has a long history of distrusting public officials. "We were called 'The Invisible Community,'" Palmquist says. "We don't get ourselves into trouble. We don't make noise." Palmquist had taken it upon herself to go door to door to organize the Hispanic community, and the doors literally did not open. The community has a long history of distrusting public officials, and Palmquist's status as a fellow Mexican American did not outweigh the perception that she was an outsider. Palmquist wasn't the only person to notice the disconnect. Cortez is a diverse, working-class city of 8,500 ...
