Migration is Beautiful

Migration is Beautiful | Community Village Daily | Scoop.it


"Artist and co-founder of CultureStrike, Favianna Rodriguez, created the “Migration is Beautiful” butterfly image. “The butterfly symbol was not my idea. Immigrant rights activists have seen the butterfly as a symbol of fluid and peaceful migration for generations. To me, the monarch butterfly represents the dignity and resilience of migrants, and the right that all living beings have to move freely. I believe that we shouldn’t allow our identity to be defined only by our suffering, nor by the actions that others have taken to devalue our families and our labor — rather, let us celebrate our beauty, pride, and resilience in the face of inequality and injustice.”

Thoughts on Black America, as a Country

Thoughts on Black America, as a Country | Community Village Daily | Scoop.it


Posted by fivefiths


If Black America were a country in itself, it would almost certainly look nothing like this. The effort of distilling the statistical plights of the loose entity known as American Blackness into a sweet and potent aperitif of easily digestible infographics is a worthwhile endeavor, especially as a way to show just how disparate our reality is from the rest of America. However, the effectiveness falls flat in the gimmick: in presenting these isolated statistics as the measurements of a hypothetical country (let’s call it Blacktopia).

Inequality Is

Inequality Is | Community Village Daily | Scoop.it


Inequality is looking on the surface


and believing all is revealed.


That the person standing before you


is an Other,


someone not real.


 

Inequality is looking


at someone’s skin color


at someone’s clothes


at someone’s body type


and making believe that we know all


about them.

Events planned for first anniversary of Andy Lopez killing - Oct 22, 2013 - Santa Rosa, CA | Community Village Daily | Scoop.it

SONOMA COUNTY, Calif. — Sonoma County residents are preparing several events to mark the one-year anniversary of the killing of 13-year-old Andy Lopez by a county sheriff's deputy on Oct. 22, 2013.

Community members plan to attend a 6 p.m. meeting Monday in Santa Rosa of the Community and Local Law Enforcement Task Force, which was established by the county Board of Supervisors following the shooting of Andy by Deputy Erick Gelhaus, who believed the airsoft rifle the teen was carrying was an AK-47 rifle.

Click here to Receive Reparations or Pay Reparations for Enslavement, Stolen Land or Oppression

Click here to Receive Reparations or Pay Reparations for Enslavement, Stolen Land or Oppression | Community Village Daily | Scoop.it


Hi,

My name is Glenn Robinson and I have been inspired by damali ayo's National Day of Panhandling for Reparations . 

I run a blog called Community Village and another called Oppression Monitor. I thought these would be perfect places to 'panhandle' for donations that can be paid right back out. 

I will use these funds to pay out reparations and use 33 cents from each transaction to pay for the payment system and web hosting. 

You can test our beta versions here:   

Reparations through Oppression Monitor 

Reparations through Community Village 

Thank you!

REPORT: DESTRUCTIVE DELAY: THE STATE OF IMMIGRATION ENFORCEMENT AND THE HUMAN COST OF POSTPONING REFORMS

REPORT: DESTRUCTIVE DELAY: THE STATE OF IMMIGRATION ENFORCEMENT AND THE HUMAN COST OF POSTPONING REFORMS | Community Village Daily | Scoop.it


Destructive Delay, written by Tania Unzueta and co-authored by B. Loewe, illuminates the inhumane interior Immigration and Customs Enforcement practices that continue unabated while the President postpones action and it highlights the human cost of the delay. The key findings shed light on an agency driven by one calculated mission, to meet a draconian deportation quota, regardless of the costs to public safety, institutional integrity, moral or constitutional considerations.


Through almost three dozen interviews with front-line organizers, legal experts, and people in deportation proceedings, Destructive Delay collects previously disparate and disconnected stories of the lived experience of ICE enforcement activity into a single document. The report provides real-life context for the rhetoric of the debate and gives an inside look into how immigration policy is actually working on the ground.
