Human rights lawyer Bryan Stevenson represents those who have been abandoned. His clients are people on death row — abused and neglected children who were prosecuted as adults and placed in adult prisons where they were beaten and sexually abused, and mentally disabled people whose illnesses helped land them in prison where their special needs were unmet.

Today he spoke to us about justice in the 21st century:

"The new statistic from the Justice [Department] is really disheartening: The Justice Department is now reporting that one in three black male babies born in the 21st century is expected to go to jail or prison. The statistic for Latino boys is one in six. That statistic was not true in the 20th century. It was not true in the 19th century. It didn’t become true until the 21st century. That means we have enormous work to do to improve our commitment to society that is not haunted and undermined and corrupted by our legacy of racial inequality.”

Interesting reading. Most voters I’ve met say they have not looked into the #GreenParty even if they have heard of it with some interest. One fundamental difference to other parties is the independent attitude of political candidate to corporate funding. GREEN PARTY DOES NOT ACCEPT CORPORATE / PAC DONATIONS (Green Party of Michigan requirement.) Beginning from that premise the amount of legislative activity would be more affective and closer to the interest of real people rather than corporate entities. Government which enables the interests of people rather than a military-industrial-medical-prison complex.

It takes an ENGAGED VOTER to know the political candidates, their party positions, and courage to vote their educated interest rather than being predisposed to an attitude of “disposable vote of no coincidental change”.

Voting is an amplification of your voice moving forward for that representative’s term in office. Real change CAN HAPPEN when you vote responsibly and consciously.

From article:
“Congressional deadlock is nothing new, but it is believed to be worse than ever - this is borne out by the facts. According to the Brookings Institute, during the 80th Congress (1947-8) fewer than 30% of significant issues were left unlegislated as contrasted to 70% in the 112th Congress (2011-12). There is a strong anti-political narrative that holds that all politicians are corrupt, selfish and in the pockets of donors. This is often an excuse for people to justify their disengagement and intellectual laziness. However, it is fair to say that the money and backing required to run for office does place an enormous strain on any legislator’s independence.”
[ Please read the entire linked article. ]

This current form of corporatocracy is brought to you by the Republican and Democrat Parties. Both of which openly endorse the voice of big business over the voice of people. This attitude of “money is your voice” has corrupted the ability for government to be effective for the people. Continuation is an endorsement of the corporatocracy, and sadly few will make the choice to be well informed, educated voters believing the effort would be “inconsequential”.

Bottom line - your conscious vote is of consequence, please #VOTE2014 and know the candidates & issues.

Today I wanted to share some quotes by several-decade-spanning American activist and self-identifying revolutionary Grace Lee Boggs. Here’s a near-release documentary which she is the subject of.

Grace Lee Boggs is a 98-year-old Chinese American woman in Detroit whose vision of revolution will surprise you.

A writer, activist, and philosopher rooted for more than 70 years in the African American movement, she has devoted her life to an evolving revolution that encompasses the contradictions of America’s past and its potentially radical future.

99-year-old movement legend Grace Lee Boggs is in hospice care, and our thoughts are with her as she completes her life’s journey.

I am coming to the end of a long journey—a journey that began over 70 years ago at the beginning of World War II. This journey has basically been to show that there is an alternative to the Bolshevik revolutionary prototype. It has taken us a long time to accomplish this, but we have been able to do so both as a result of our historical vision and because of the very practical efforts of comrades who have risen to the challenge of creating a revolution unlike any revolution that has been in the past.

Because of my increasing physical limitations in the last few years, I have not been able to play the role that I might have played. But that is not as important now as recognizing what has been achieved. A revolution that is based on the people exercising their creativity in the midst of devastation is one of the great historical contributions of humankind.

We will be finding ways and means to celebrate this, one of which will be the Reimagining Work and Culture conference in October. We want people to understand how much this concept of new work and new culture is based upon not only enormous activity but also on vision and on imagination.

American Revolutionary: The Life of Grace Lee Boggs unfolds like a layered conversation. Director Grace Lee was working on The Grace Lee Project, seeking stories from Asian American women who share a common name with her. In a moment of serendipity, Grace Lee met Grace Lee Boggs; a social activist born in 1915, feminist, supporter of the black power movement, lover of good questions, and idol to many. What emerged from their initial meeting became a decade-long project of conversations and sharing stories. Lee captures candid and intimate sides of Boggs and the flux of activism, revolution, inner reflection, and structural change. As Boggs narrates histories of activism and community in Detroit, she also provides her refreshing and restorative wisdoms on spiritual and social transformation.

Friday - October 10, 2014 Grace Lee Boggs entered into hospice care.
