As a young child here in Kentucky, my nightmare began when I was first auctioned off to a willing buyer and sexually abused. That scenario played out repeatedly in hotel rooms and private homes until I finally escaped at age 18—far too late to prevent numerous mental and physical health problems.” —Margeaux Gray
The problem runs much deeper than the killings at UCSB. It's much larger than the abduction of an estimated 250 schoolgirls in Nigeria. Its horrific effects pervade cultures beyond Afghanistan, Honduras, and Haiti.
Kansas supports leaders who understand this simple truth: Instead of spending almost a billion dollars a day on foreign oil, we should produce more clean, renewable fuel here at home. Under the commonsense, bipartisan Renewable Fuel Standard, America has tripled production of renewable fuel in the last ten years. That has helped drive oil imports down to the lowest level in 20 years, reduced harmful pollution that fouls the air and causes climate change, and created hundreds of thousands of
We know we need to greatly reduce greenhouse gas emissions to solve the problem of climate change—a problem that extends beyond polar bears and the Arctic to affect all wildlife and people, too. But how do we achieve that goal? Experts say the surest way is to set a fair price for carbon pollution. By including the true cost of carbon in the price we pay for fossil fuels, we can speed up the transition to a renewable energy future. Not only will this reduce the greenhouse gas emissions that c
If your child isn’t getting a great education, you don’t just shrug your shoulders. America shouldn’t either. Right now, Congress is debating an update to the Elementary and Secondary Education Act, the groundbreaking civil rights law that committed our country to providing a high-quality education for all our students. We’ve made great progress under the law, but that may change because some of our leaders in Washington, D.C., are trying to back out on that commitment. Right now, w
Helping my city’s homeless could land me in jail with a $2000 dollar fine. Last November, a 90-year-old Florida man was arrested and faced 60 days in jail for feeding the homeless. A few months later, a San Antonio woman was hit with a $2000 dollar fine for doing the same.. These “feeding bans” have popped up all over the United States. In fact, more than 70 cities around the country have instituted or tried to institute similar ordinances. My name is Randall Kallinen, and I am deeply sad
West Bengal is the center of human trafficking for domestic slavery in India today. With no law pertaining to placement agencies in West Bengal, children and women continue to fall prey to illegal recruitment agencies that entice them with false job offers and then trap them into domestic slavery.
In recent months, attacks on students in Nigeria, especially girls, have increased. Without the promise of safety, many students may avoid attending school, exacerbating inequality and forming what Nigerian youth education advocate Ojonwa Miachi calls a “foundation for more conflict and violence.”
In the majority of South Asian societies, men have more power and rights than women, resulting in a high rate of verbal, physical and psychological abuse. Violence against women and gender discrimination happen so often that it’s taken for granted.
People—including pregnant women and unborn children—are suffering under the burden of increased air pollution as a consequence of fracking. Fracking spews harmful pollutants into the local air. Communities across the country deserve healthy air—and a healthy planet for our children’s future. Fortunately, parents—and grandparents, aunts, uncles, and sisters and brothers—have the power to make that happen. Our voices count. Tell the EPA that we need national protection against fracking pollut
Wolf Creek Pass in southwestern Colorado forms the pristine headwaters of the Rio Grande and San Juan Rivers. Bridging the South San Juan and Weminuche Wilderness Areas, the pass is beloved for stunning vistas and ample opportunities for backcountry recreation along the Continental Divide. It is also one of the most biologically-important areas in the Southern Rockies, providing habitat and migration pathways for elk, deer, black bear and the threatened Canada lynx. In fact, Wolf Creek Pass ho
