Challenging Discrimination This Hispanic Heritage Month

Each year when "Hispanic Heritage Month" rolls around Sept 15 to Oct.15 we have the opportunity to spotlight and celebrate the many cultures that make up the Hispanic, or Latino, or Latinx community, (All terms for us that we are not universally in agreement with using. ¿Que sera, sera?).

A reflection on Dr. Rev Martin Luther King, Jr.; his life and legacy

As I reflect on this "King Day" and the weekend of service projects, commemorative marches, and also the series of anti-war activities that honor his legacy and where we are in this country and the world on this 54th anniversary of his death it seems that so much has changed but so little has changed. We are still fighting the issues in many of our communities. Hate crimes, violence, criminalization of the poor, racism, sexism, and homophobia and even transphobia are on the rise. The planet is dying, and people are hurting, and there are those who play politics with our lives as if no one really matters. While the rich get richer, and the poor get poorer. Continue reading
