Fresh update on "commonwealth" discussed on Commonwealth Club

"How America Today and throughout history really has been shaped by a very rigid hierarchy of human rankings. Do you said she inspired you? Tell me more I absolutely love is about worker sins work. I mean, there's so many different solids. Not there is that I could give shoutouts to in my own journey who have opened doors for me in academia and beyond Isabel Wilkerson specifically, even in relation to this book. There's a couple of different things that are that are in common. I felt very inspired by her. Number one that she makes it so clear that the black American experience is the American experience without understanding black history. You can't understand where we are as a country and it's crucial that everybody study this and understand that she's earned that Pulitzer Prize through and through on gassed is is, you know, no different than that. She's giving us work that helps us understand where we are today by using history and then Secondly, you know, maybe more technical one that she brought three different beautiful stories together as She talks about the great migration and you feel so connected to something that we might have known about in history but not really fully considered the human experience behind it. And when you hear these three different experiences, because the different places that the three go to and what they encounter in their own level of education and resource is they're able to acquire and the different challenges that are in their paths. It made me really excited to think about approaching my book in that same way that I could find these intersections between three different people, but also speak to those similarities. And yes, he's an incredible inspiration for me would be such an honor to meet her some day. She's magnificent. I did have the privilege a couple of times when she was actually at seminar with the National Association of Black Journalists, and she came and presented, and it was standing room only, of course, as it should have been, um Who was your book written for and who should read it? Yes, I was carrying a lot of different people with me. As I wrote this book, first and foremost, this is to celebrate black women. 100%. This is to say we're here. We're proud. I see you and hopefully see me and let's celebrate each other. So it's all about black womanhood. I'm also here to celebrate moms and not just biological mothers. Those of us in society that are caretakers that have these, you know, more feminine qualities that we often say are weak, but in set are much more powerful and influential than we've deemed them to be Those of us that are teaching and raising those around us. It's the celebrate All of us who performed that worked day in and day out who deserve more recognition and more celebration. A man who I believe are being ignored. And I don't find that to be okay. Especially now when we're talking about over 19 are essential workers are for the most part day in and day out doing mothering kind of work, and I want to call attention to that. And thirdly, basis for activists. I see Burgess, Albert and Louise all is these activists in their own right? I'm not sure they would call himself. I think Louise would have for sure. But the other two I don't think would have seen themselves that way. But when I see their lives and talk about their work and see the different ways in which they inspired change and push people to like you said at the beginning quote Change their perspective on everything that was happening and helping them see the world through their eyes. I see that his activism and I think so many of us today who are participating in the movement in different ways can find motivation in their life work as well. Do you think any of these mothers of these three mothers Felt that their approach to parenting was radical. You know how some you know how people can sometimes say of black women. She's to this. She's too strong. She's too radical. That's too aggressive. Did they see it as we had a coat? That's a great question. I think that they were loving their Children and raising them and the way they felt was right and appropriate. And I could see Louise Little, perhaps knowing that she was being I don't know she would use the word radical, but that she was directly challenging and very like, physically challenging white supremacy, and she wanted her Children to see her do that, You know, even in Malcolm X's autobiography, it starts with these Story of her standing up against the Black Legion, which is a white supremacist KKK type group, and she's you know, just confronting them, even though she knows she could die in that moment, and no one would have suffered any kind of consequence for hurting her or her Children, But she's teaching them. This is what I want you to do. And I think maybe people could have easily told her that was dangerous. Maybe should have protected your kids. And said, she said, this is my way of protecting them from the idea that I should bow down to these kind of crazy white men, But instead I'm going to stand up and show them who we are As a people you have touched on this a little earlier and so I want to now come. To address it directly. How did these three mothers manage and live with the abiding fear about their son safety and that's the major question, but I'm asking it also of You and other black mothers of black Suns. Given today's environment and circumstances. How do you manage the fear and what guidance can be derived from knowing how these three women did? A central part of this book is that they are human beings. You know, we forget that these sons were humans. We think about them is these figures. And we don't think about day in and day out. They were loved. And when they were hurt, they were deeply missed. When they were killed. They were taking Mr even when they were away doing their work. This is really hard for their families to know that they were risking their lives on behalf of their nation. And in so many ways, we're being misunderstood even in okay Junior who everybody you know, adores now was considered radical in his time. And so the mother's face that they confront that they are very real and vulnerable, at least in the way that I read their actions and their desire to let their family know that they were worried. MLK Jr was well aware that his mother was worried. He talks about this and some of his letters and even hit in his autobiography put together by Professor Clayborne Carson. But he speaks to how he knew his mother was worried. She even had to. You know, the doctor made sure she Stayed home for a while because she was so afraid of things more things happening to him after their house was bombed, and all of these different things were happening. So I find that to be something that is so crucial because she's not saying I'm this superhero woman who doesn't have feelings, You know so often black women are Described this way. Wow, how strong you are that you can go through this pain and it's something I mentioned earlier. When we're talking about childbirth, you know that pain is real. We feel it and we need to stop celebrating black women for something somehow having a super Supernatural ability to make it through pain and instead say what can reduce that these painful moments no longer happen as a black mother. Of course, it makes me concerned for my child. Boy girl, whatever gender that something could happen to them because of the color of their skin and also committed to changing Thies systems. This book is a part of commenting on what is still in place today that could have made life easier if we'd alleviated that burden for Alberto Burgess and Louise. I don't want to just congratulate and celebrate them because of their perseverance. I want to see you. This is a lesson for how we move forward as a nation. You're a message is we matter? As mothers that black mothers are mothers to the world. In fact, I have a quote. Look at our history and all the babies. We'd raised our own. And other people's It's any racer. That's what you called it in the book any Ray Sure of the contribution.

"Mothers of Martin Luther King Jr. Malcolm X and James Baldwin shaped a Nation. Ah little background about Ana. She is an educator and diversity equity and inclusion consultant. She's currently pursuing a doctorate in sociology at the University of Cambridge in the United Kingdom. That's where she also earned a master's degree in multi disciplinary gender studies. Ana Welcome. Thank you, Valerie. Thank you So much for that introduction and for joining me in conversation on my virtual book tour, it means the world Well, I want you to consider me your Let's say your conversation partner. I get to do what your audience would love to be able to do, and that is to ask questions and to have a chat in the opportunity to chat with you so I'm excited. It's gonna be a great our thanks to everyone also for tuning in everybody get comfortable on, And I just wanna chat. There isn't out of formality in this, In fact, the way I'd like to start Each chapter of your book begins with a really powerful quotation. It's one that sets the tone for the narrative to come. So in the spirit of that, I'd like to start this with a quotation that I think describes the opportunity that your book offers to your listeners. And that quotation is If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change. Mm hmm. What motivated you to look at these three mothers of the civil rights movement who were known they were mentioned that they were definitely background to their famous sons. Yeah, It's a great first question. These three mothers and so many ways have been erased from our record in our history, and it's really a crime. It's the same crime that happens when any black woman story is a race. That's similar to what Margot Lee said early was trying to correct with hidden figures and highlighting these black mathematicians, female mathematicians that were essential for NASA. And so it's similar to what I'm doing with these three mothers. These three women were essential parts of our community and parts of our society and our history. Even before they had their sons. They were creators. They were activists. They were writers. They were instrumentalists and talented in their own right and then beyond that, they also birds three of the most important men in history and raised them. They followed their own passions and made sure that their sons could follow their Paxson's as well. And there's such a direct link between all three of the mother's and what their sons were able to accomplish for the world. I started researching them specifically because I knew I wanted to join. Others who were correcting the ratio of black women. But I also had a limit on how much time I was going to have in my PhD program. That's when I came up with the idea of starting with someone famous and someone who was hidden by that same hidden by that bright light and was kind of waiting in the shadows to be discovered. And I just fell in love with each of these mothers stories. Well, you know, I think some people may be many people think, Malcolm Martin James. They were just kind of born ready. You know, they were just born ready to conquer the world. But we need to talk about more about the women who birthed them and guided them and influenced them. So let's talk very specifically, Let's start with Alberta, Canada. That sounds great, And I mean it's something we recently celebrated MLK Junior's Animal cage in your Day, which celebrates his birthday credit stop. King made sure that this became a national holiday. But it's something that's quite funny. If we're going to celebrate his first, we certainly should think about the person who birthed him like he said. He didn't just pop out of nowhere, saying, Oh, Nonviolence sounds really great. But instead, he was birthed by Alberta King, who was born to two parents who made Ebony's or Baptist, this church that was the speaking of home. Hope in the civil rights movement and the movement that even came before the civil rights movement. And they believe that faith was not faith without social justice that the church needed to meet the needs of its members that it needed to play a role in progressing the fight for black lives, and they did so through boycotts through marches. They joined the end of the deep and so this is how Albert is raise. She joins their work as well. Right alongside them is their only surviving child. They make sure that she has access to education. Then they make this a priority so that she also conjoined them in their fight, and then I can talk more about her. Of course, the book is filled with this. I don't want to give too much away, but even her looks right then. No, no, I was just saying we aren't going to give things away because there's so much here. You could just never run out of things to give Curtis Baldwin she lived and taught. Forgiveness. It was like, no matter what no matter the pain you have to see love. You have to see light. This is something that came up over and over again with the family members. I was able to interview and the letters that I was able to read and gain access to that This was the lesson. She wanted everybody to carry love and light and forgiveness Because you could not hold on to the hatred you could not hold on to the pain. I think it comes as a result of her losing her mother When she was born, she was born into tragedy Born into pain and need To find a way to still live life and still find her faith and her optimism in her relationship with her husband. We know that he's abusive. James Baldwin talks about his visa stepfather quite a lot in his writing, and she wants to help her Children to still see love to not hold hatred, even against him, and they witnessed how much pain he causes her. So her life is just a testimony to what you can do if you can hold on to love I and she, even as you explain in your book, talked about how she wanted him to go and see his very end of his life, even though he knew all of the sadness and hurt her. I think she also really knew. So you saw beyond that initial pain that initial her and she knows that her son will not ever be liberated. If you can't find forgiveness before his step Father passes away, So she says, you need to go and forgive him not only for him but for yourself so you can move forward. And James Baldwin uses an example of thinking about the way we need to forgive what's happening well, confronting the darkness, not avoiding the darkness out of waiting with the pain. We know James Baldwin was so direct in his criticisms. He was not hiding from anything. But he was also aware that we've needed to arrive at a place that witnessed light and witnessed love the mothers. They were born within six. Years of each other. The sun's within five years of each other on a Could you describe the times and circumstances on but were the similarities and the differences in the mother's experience is the biggest thing that I really did want to celebrate in this book is the nuance and the diversity of black womanhood. It was so crucial to me. I talk a lot throughout the book of the categories that people try to push black women into depending on the different stages of their life in the different decades, and what was the latest way? To insult black women. I talk about the dead Isabel the Mammy, the matriarch, the welfare queen, the strong black woman trope and challenge it by saying, Look at Louise. Look at British looking Alberta. None of them fit neatly into this. They were challenging it day in and day out to assert their humanity that we could not be boxed in, so their differences are definitely celebrated. The similarities that come up are primarily because they were all three black women. In this time where, you know, dim crow laws reigning supreme on in different ways outside of the United States..

Philadelphia has had tighter restrictions than most places in the country. Even then, in the rest of the state. It was only Friday that officials loosen those limits to match the state.

Are we going to meet our vaccination target or what?

"Hello this is karina. Cost a daily podcast. All about the coronavirus. I'm health reported teigen thailand physician and journalists dr norman swan. It's wednesday the third of march and norman. We're already more than a week into our vaccine. Roll out here in australia. Which makes us old hands at it now but there were reports over the past few days. That strategy hasn't quite met the targets that i was expecting to in terms of numbers. Vaccinations delivered in this first week. And we've got a pretty big target for october as being sort of the end of the roll out the end of the first big sizes of the rollout. What are some of the issues that have cropped up. I mean it's such early days. It feels a little unfair to stop critiquing the performance when we're on the awakened but what are some of the issues that have been identified as maybe slowing us down a bit. So far rove is clearly been a major cities of hiccups with the commonwealth rollout in aged care. As we've been saying in current cast in fact the main game is boorda. Workers airport workers flight crew and hotel quarantine workers and what we should be doing but we're not as their families in households. So that's the main game securing our borders. And doing that hyper quickly. And you've really got to do that with the vaccine because it's going to take you twelve weeks to complete it with the astra and it's not going to be as good coverage with the with the new variant possibility so there's been a cold up in aged care because the commonwealth doesn't run anything have his own services therefore they've got a contract they probably should have contracted it to the states. But they've going into private providers and been cups which have been well publicized so it's to take the commonwealth a bit of time to get their act together and also some of the states have been a little bit slow so this combination of supply of scene. But also as marion kane or imply. Just today the bookings haven't gone quite as quickly as they imagined. And they could cope with more bookings. And i think there's been a hint of that in some other jurisdictions so people have got to come forward when they're booked and have that but around the world there has been a problem with people. Not turning up for bookings people don't turn up for their appointments and that means that you have a system in place where you've got people on standby people that you can take a. We've got jobs over. can you. At five o'clock in unexpectedly get your vaccine. So we saw we had the new south wales primary gladys and yesterday criticizing the maybe lack of communication between the states and federal government. Is there improvements. That could be made there. Probably and the minister of sought yesterday to have a press conference which is probably in part induced. By the new south wales premier having criticized the federal government for not being clear with the doses. And how they're going to arrive. I mean i think some of the surprise here is that if i had a long time to develop this. And it's still not clear how the next phases are going to be rolled out how people are going to be told what booking system is going to be like. Gp is still not clear how they're going to work into it. They've had their letter saying they've been accepted as a as a center for you know the practice to deliver vaccines but even then the ph primary health. Networks are often not clear whether or not the four thousand six hundred practices are indeed the ones that will end up doing it. So there's a fair bit of uncertainty another area of uncertainties that third pretty good administration stopping doctors commenting on the relative efficacy of vaccines. Because they're calling it. Advertising saying the vaccine come to my practice sits behind that there's a lot influx. We'll get our act together. We're good immunizing country. People will come. Forward is just that. We don't want to lose momentum.

What happens if you get the wrong dose?

"And so norman vaccine relative happening the government indicated earlier this week. That in the role that they were going to be mistakes made and we saw one of your day. We saw an idea year old man and a ninety four year old woman in brisbane though given the incorrect dose of the five vaccine and they're not sure it's all under investigation at the moment. They may have been given up to four times the amount of vaccine. So can you guys on a vaccine is it. Is it a safety problem. And what have health authorities done right and wrong in this situation. Well the first thing i want to do is give a huge shy type on this to both the commonwealth and queensland health because this is the textbook way so if you are feeling a corpus are unsettled about this in terms of the rollout of the vaccine i on the other hand find this reassuring hugely reassuring because what happened here was. Let's just go through it. There was a mistake. Made the nurse notice it and called it out and the authorities have not hidden it. They've been transparent about it and there's going to be an investigation and we'll learn from it. That's exactly the way safety and quality should work in healthcare. Mistakes will occur all the time. This just not happen more than once. It's unfortunate for the people who experienced them but human error is inevitable but the way to deal with it. Is that anybody who sees a mistake. Be able to call it out so for example if you're a daughter scrub nursing theater and you see a senior surgeon to making a mistake you call them out on and you are transparent about it. You don't hide it and so nothing has been hidden here since gives me huge confidence that the system is going to be safe and protect against human error. So i'm i'm reassured. By second thing is what about the man and the woman who were immunized. Is this a risk for them. The have been trials of the pfizer vaccine where they have tried out higher doses and my understanding is that those higher doses where safe did not produce side effects. And i think what's happened probably over. The course of the trial is to preserve the vaccine. They've tried to fight the lowest does. That's most effective and that'll be the does that's being administered. Not in theory. You could possibly get out of over reaction in the immune system. That's possible particularly with these mini vaccines but the fact that these people are elderly. They've got reduced immunity in the first place. And it's unlikely you're going to get that problem so you can have problems with too much vaccine. But hopefully they will be fine

State Trends In Employer Premiums And Deductibles

"Recently. The commonwealth fund examined the extent to which people with moderate incomes in employer health plans face high premium and deductible costs relative to their income to discuss the results of the study and the implications for policy holders going forward. I'm joined by sarah collins vice president of healthcare coverage and access at the commonwealth fund. Sarah welcome to the show. Thank you so much. Mike so sarah watches. Start out by telling us why you initiated this study and what you're looking for well employer health coverage is really the backbone of the us health insurance system more than half the population of the united states about one hundred sixty million people get their coverage through an employer so the purpose of this study was to look at trends over the last decade and the amount that workers and their families are paying for their employer health insurance and the size of their deductibles in all fifty states and the district of columbia and we compare these worker cost to median income in each state in order to get a sense of the economic burden of these costs on middle income families. And how did you go about conducting the research. We've been conducting the study nearly every year since twenty ten Using the latest data From what's known as the insurance components. Federal medical medical expenditure panel survey This survey is the most comprehensive national survey of use employer. health plans In twenty nineteen Which is the latest year of data. That's available This survey interviewed more than forty thousand business. Establishments With an overall response rate of fifty nine percent we computed from the survey reported statewide average premiums so we take the premiums reported by business establishments and average them across the state and we do the same deductibles and then we compared those averages to the median income in each state so this provides a rough measure of the affordability protectiveness of employer coverage and allows us to track changes over time. And what did you find after you conducted this study. We found that premium contributions and deductibles in employer plans took up a growing share of workers incomes over the past decade those costs together so premium contributions and deductibles accounted for eleven point five percent of meeting median household income and twenty nineteen. This is up from about nine point one percent a decade earlier the this cost burden in employer. Health plans has increased over the past decade because cumulative growth in median income has been slower growth in premium contributions deductibles. We also find that these contributions premium contributions deductibles as well as needing income vary considerably across the country the total cost of premiums and deductibles across single and family policies ranged from a low of about fifty. Five hundred dollars in hawaii. Too high of more than eighty five hundred dollars in nine states. Meet an income ranged from a low of about forty nine thousand and mississippi in mexico too highs around ninety thousand or more in massachusetts minnesota new hampshire new jersey what workers pay towards their premiums and deductibles comprised about ten percent or more of median income in thirty seven states in two thousand ten and twenty nineteen. This is up from about ten states Twenty ten in nine states workers combined costs were fourteen percent or more of meeting income workers in new mexico and louisiana face the highest potential cost relative to their income more than seventeen percent and we actually also find that people living in states that have lower meeting incomes like new mexico are doubly burdened on average workers in states where the median income is lower than the national median income face higher premiums and deductibles compared to people in states with higher median incomes. Also find that. Many people employer plans across. The country are insured Because their deductibles are high. Relative to their incomes tacoma fund has found that insured people who have high out of pocket costs and deductibles relative to their income are more likely to face problems accessing care or paying medical bills Than people who are not under insured. We've we've defined someone with insurance as under insert at their health plans. Deductibles deductible equals about five percent or more of income or if they're out of pocket costs reached similar thresholds in this study across the country. Many people employer plans are underinsured by this measure average deductibles relative median income or five percent or more in twenty states and ranged as high as seven percent in mexico.

"Of the Commonwealth Club of California. I'm Gloria Duffy, president and CEO of the club and all be our moderator for today's very special program with Speaker of the U. S. House of Representatives, the Honorable Nancy Pelosi. As the U. S grapples with covert and an economy in crisis and with President Biden and Vice President Harris about to take office. We're pleased to talk with Speaker Pelosi about the direction of the country plans for the new Congress and the possibilities for breaking gridlock in Washington and the country in general. Speaker. Pelosi is, of course in her third term as the 57, speaker of the House and is the first woman to serve in this role. She's represented San Francisco in Congress for 33 years, and I'm proud to have called Speaker Pelosi, my friend for the past 35 years. Thank you so much for being with us, especially given all that is going on there in Washington. And all that's on your plate and welcome back to the Commonwealth Club. Madam Speaker. Thank you very much. Madam President Gloria Duffy. I'm honored to be at the Common Law Club, and it's perfect time in light of everything that is going on. But I also want Congratulate them for having you as president. You mentioned that we've been friends for over 35 years. I want everyone to know that we became friends on the trip to Central America That was Spotted by the Columbia Foundation. Madeline has Russell some of you may have known her sponsored account for a trip to Central America joined this Central American wars, which I completely opposed. But Gloria being the academics that she is, she went there and we watched her. All of her as she viewed things scientifically academically. For example, if we visited an airfield, she would she would be writing down. How many Russian of vehicles where there are Russian parts or this or that she was making. Not that what we were doing, taking an impression having impression, but she was collecting Data that would be very helpful and how it would go forward. So I've been in all of her for decades, and I'm so proud that she's at the Commonwealth Club and speaking of going back years Today, as many of you know. When we're filming this, not maybe when you're saying it is Theseventies ninth anniversary. Of Pearl Harbor 79 adversity of Pearl Harbor Day that would live in infamy is President Roosevelt said. Following that, my it's a important to mention now is a country came together and united to fight our foe and to win and doing so we lost about 291. That's the number of record Americans in World War 2 291 right now, well over 280 people who have died, other calling a virus million's infected but over 280 Well on our way to surpass the number of Americans who died in World War two. It is absolutely essential that we come together and united way. To fight this virus, which has such in. This made such an assault on the lives and the lively of the American people, and we must do it in the most science based way. Science based not despite Ng. It is a hoax or delayed two mile distortion or anything but based on science. So right now in Congress were working on legislation to take us And into the next administration, which will be soon and the whole dynamic of our debate has changed because we have a new president who was interested in science, just scientific decisions and recommendations of where your mask socially distancing was Testing, tracing treatment and the rest that have been ignored, and also we have a vaccine. It's pretty exciting. In a few days, the committee will approve or question whatever but move forward. The vaccine defies the vaccine. Another week, the Madonna vaccine And before you know it, the governor has a plan on how we would receive what comes to California. But the vaccine is not natural for everyone right now. We have to take science. His view on how we go forward. I'm so excited about the fact that Whatever the party of a person it's about science. It's about the future. Thank you, Madam Speaker and thank you for your kind words. I knew on that trip to Central America that you were headed for great things. And I could see the dedication, the grit the intensity that you have brought to your job. So thank you for your service. So what do you think about American leadership? We're a bit beaten down at the moment by this virus and our political troubles and so on. What do you envision for American leadership, especially on the global scene? Well, American leadership is absolutely essential in the world because of who we are this great country and economic giant of security leader and the democracy, which is the strength of our country that freedom of expression of ideas, and George Schultz would even say that in countries where you could have freedom of expression You have a better product than where it is that suppressed multilateralism has been central to our leadership in the world. Respect for NATO respect for all the institutions that came forth at the end of World War two but needing to be refreshed and reviewed to see how they meet the needs. The issue of climate change is an issue that affects everything. It's about our national security are our national security experts Tell us must address this issue if you're going to be safe. It. Security wise health people You're going You must dress is is you're gonna be safe. Clean air, clean water protecting the planet. Physically, you must be if it's bad jobs. It's about green new technology. We must be preeminent in the world. So it's clear and that issue where America has been so much in the lead and protecting the environment and now protecting the planet, But it's goes beyond that as well and to national security. On the multilateralism being very important that economically a national security, So when we as Congress, people visit a country we have a purpose or purposes about our national security. It's a better economic security, and it's about governance. It's about being a good example to the world of governance and in corruption, honoring a democracy in the voice of all people. So the values that we have in that respect are not bite, dictating others how we think they should, but by the power of our example So the country we told we've been told over and over again On the last year I've been to Normandy for the anniversary and 75 years I've been to the battle the ball 75 years been toe Auschwitz 75 years of the freeing of our schwitz. Israel to celebrate that to Munich for the Munich security conference. In all those places America say, the cut those countries they're saying America is essential to global security to global of peace in the world. It's nice to have positive thoughts like that. As we come out of this pandemic in this crisis, I wanted to ask you were in an interim period right now between you know, with the election of President Biden and Vice President Harris. But with President Trump still in office, How do you feel about the state of the country? Right now? In this interregnum that were in Well, I'm counting the days until we have a new president. Disappointed that they're my colleagues in Congress have not had the patriotism to say the election is over. I think 27 of a couple 100 members have said the election is over. But anyway, putting that aside, one of things we're trying to do now is to to end Keep government open when in negotiation, wanna build an omnibus bill to do just that, as well as a covert package to it? Food in that to take us into the future. This covert packages again different as I mentioned earlier because we have a new president who does care about science, and we have a vaccine, which is it gives us hope. But in the meantime, we still have to take Precautions and again part of what we want to do that is different from that was to return to a place better healthcare, lowering the cost of health care by We're in the cost of prescription drugs of honoring pre existing condition benefit, etcetera. Bigger paychecks by building infrastructure of American Greenway take us into the future and cleaner government. You have the public have confidence that their voices is important is anyone else's by reducing the money? The role of big dark money in politics, So that's The path that we're on going into the next election. I really rather not spend too much time on the current soon to be ex president of the United States. Upward in one word. Let's go into the future. But right now, one of the fights that we have it is relevant. Very important and relevant to this discussion is in our probation bill. We're trying to stop the president for ending the civil service and firing. The people who are not political appointee is just people who are at these agencies that he just doesn't want to have their Replace them said that binds of.

I'm coming to you from my home in Palo Alto, California and this event is also being sponsored by common Sense Media of San Francisco. I will disclose that I am on their board, but you should not hold that against them. Today. We will hear from Dr Abram Ex candy. Historian professor at American University, where he founded the anti racist Research and Policy Center whom, as we speak, is becoming a faculty member at Boston University, where he will lead the view Center for anti racist research. He is The New York Times best selling author of the books stamped from the beginning. The definitive History of racist Ideas in America, which won the National Book Award for nonfiction in 2016.

The young adult book stamped racism, anti racism and you and his fresh off the presses Ford Book for infants and toddlers, anti racist baby. A Children's book that teachers, parents and Children howto uproot racism in society and in our own lives. He is one of the leading voices, if not the leading voice of our time on race, racism and his term anti racism. And we're so fortunate that of all the calls being made to him in these terrible times, he said yes to the Commonwealth Club and common sense Media and the community of listeners They are known for drawing in. Welcome, Dr Candy. We're also here with the Bay Area's own doctor. Allison Briscoe Smith, Child psychologist, director of diversity, Equity and inclusion at the Right Institute, The Graduate School of Psychology at UC Berkeley. She is a fellow of the Greater Good science Center at Berkeley, where she's one of the hosts of the popular podcast. The science of Happiness, and her work focuses on trauma, post traumatic stress disorder and how Children understand race. I'm here because I've written a memoir, a personal account of what it's been like to be black and by racial in white spaces in America. To learn to loathe myself before I learned I was worthy of love, And that book is called Real American, as in a NY, Real American and homage to Sojourner truth, So let us get to some truth. We are here virtually thanks to a global pandemic called Covert 19. But we're here to discuss a different Lobel pandemic. Systemic racism, racist power. Weaponised white nationalism and its ability to inflict horrific harm. And how, in that context to be an anti racist and to raise anti racist Children, viewers and listeners. Time is going to fly. You will hunger for more feelings will come up in you and I encourage you to notice them pay attention to what they are. And at the end, I'm going to suggest what you might do with what you've notice and learned from this conversation today. Alison and Abram, I want to begin by honoring you as black people. Professors, parents, thinkers, writers humans, I want to begin by acknowledging that this has been an acutely traumatic few weeks set within the chronic pandemic of racism. We have had some moments of hope regarding human rights lately, such as the Supreme Court decision that gender fluid and trans people cannot be discriminated against in the workplace. And today's Supreme Court decision that dreamers can continue to be protected by DACA. But we have seen yet again. An unarmed black person murdered by police captured on video. We have seen a white woman tell a black man who was simply asking her to curb her dog in a bird watching area that quote an African American man is threatening my life. Captured on video. And these are simply the latest examples of the time but no longer the latest examples now that their three weeks behind us of racism wielded as weapon in America, these examples evoke the murder of Emmett Till they evoke the fictional to kill a Mockingbird. I want to honor with you that this has likely been a hard three weeks set within the context of lives. That have, perhaps at times been quite hard. And now here we are asking you to do more work to enlighten audiences. And I want to pause and say it's a lot even as we don't want to worry about our bodies. The three of us when actual black bodies are being butchered by police, as Abram writes about so beautifully and how to be anti racist. Nevertheless, your black bodies, minds, hearts and souls are being asked to carry and hold a lot. So let me begin by offering gratitude to you for being here and then let me Offer the most sincere of enquiries by asking both of you. How are you doing in these times I saw appreciate the opening and the framing and in terms of how I doing, I'll just say I am well because I am sustained by community and I am well because I am called to serve and I am well because folks of open doors be able to speak and that well, this is also about being exhausted and on fire and seeing this is an opportunity to effect change. So I'm really happy to be What you all do nothing for me. I think the last two weeks I did not feel and know is constantly Trying to think sort of past this, but I didn't feel as if I could really think about myself and what I was feeling and and what was happening to my body? Because I just knew so many people were mourning their lost loved ones, so many people or traumatized I was, of course, feeling traumatized through their trauma. But I was just I was just trying to remain focused on trying to sort of clarifying explain that that very trauma and really the violence of anti black racism I sail about to say that I also know That you know, I needed to think about my own feelings and even my own wellness and stole. I think maybe I was able to do that through writing or maybe not, But it's never go. Never ending. So struggle for me like I almost feel ashamed if I'm thinking about my own pain, what I know so many people are in pain, but But as you stated, if we don't think about own pain as we think about other people's pain, and then we're going to end up hurt. Thank you for that. Both of you. I know we have many listeners who themselves have been deeply pained by what has been happening in our country lately, and I want and hope that you will feel seen and heard as we discuss these things today. So Abram Allison. I'd like personally and I like our audience to get to know each of you a bit better..

"With informant the Commonwealth Club in San Francisco, California My name is Julie Lythcott Haines. I'm coming to you from my home in Palo Alto, California in this event is also being sponsored by common Sense Media of San Francisco. I will disclose that I am on their board, but you should not hold that against them. Today. We will hear from Dr Abrams. Andy, historian professor at American University, where he founded the anti racist Research and Policy Center whom, as we speak, is becoming a faculty member at Boston University, where he will lead the BU Center for anti racist research. He is The New York Times best selling author of the books stamped from the beginning. The definitive History of racist Ideas in America, which won the National Book Award for nonfiction in 2016. The bestselling and so popular is unavailable. To be an anti racist. The young adult book stamped racism, anti racism and you and his fresh off the presses Ford Book for infants and toddlers, anti racist baby. The Children's book that teaches parents and Children howto uproot racism in society and in our own lives. He is one of the leading voices, if not the leading voice of our time on race, racism and his term anti racism. And we're so fortunate that of all the calls being made to him in these terrible times, he said, yes to the Commonwealth Club and common sense Media and the community of listeners They're known for drawing in. Welcome, Dr Candy. We're also here with the Bay Area's own doctor, Allison Briscoe Smith, Child psychologist, director of diversity, Equity and inclusion of the Right Institute, The Graduate School of Psychology at UC Berkeley. She is a fellow of the Greater Good science Center at Berkeley, where she's one of the house of the popular podcast. The science of Happiness, and her work focuses on trauma, post traumatic stress disorder and how Children understand race. I'm here because I've written a memoir, a personal account of what it's been like to be black and by racial in white spaces in America. To learn to loathe myself before I learned I was worthy of love, And that book is called Real American, as in a NY, Real American and homage to Sojourner truth, So let us get to some truth. We are here virtually thanks to a global pandemic called Cove it 19. But we're here to discuss a different Lobel pandemic. Systemic racism, racist power. Weaponised white nationalism and its ability to inflict horrific harm and how, in that context to be an anti racist and to raise anti racist Children. Viewers and listeners. Time is going to fly. You will hunger for more feelings will come up and you and I encourage you to notice them pay attention to what they are. And at the end, I'm going to suggest what you might do with what you've noticed and learns from this conversation today. Alison and Abram, I want to begin by honoring you as black people. Professors, parents, thinkers, writers humans, I want to begin by acknowledging that this has been an acutely traumatic few weeks, Seth within the chronic pandemic of racism. We have had some moments of hope regarding human rights lately, such as the Supreme Court decision that gender fluid and trans people cannot be discriminated against in the workplace. And today's Supreme Court decision that dreamers can continue to be protected by DACA. But we have seen yet again. An unarmed black person murdered by police captured on video. We have seen a white woman tell a black man who was simply asking her to curb her dog in a bird watching area that quote an African American man is threatening my life. Captured on video. And these are simply the latest examples of the time but no longer the latest examples now that their three weeks behind us of racism wielded as weapon in America, these examples evoke the murder of Emmett Till they evoke the fictional to kill a Mockingbird. I want to honor with you that this has likely been a hard three weeks set within the context of lives. That have, perhaps at times been quite hard. And now here we are asking you to do more work to enlighten audiences. And I want to pause and say it's a lot even as we don't want to worry about our bodies. The three of us when actual black bodies are being butchered by police, as Abram writes about so beautifully and how to be anti racist. Nevertheless, your black bodies, minds, hearts and souls are being asked to carry and holds a lot. So let me begin by offering gratitude to you for being here and then let me Offer the most sincere of enquiries by asking both of you. How are you doing in these times I saw appreciate the opening and the framing and in terms of how I doing, I'll just say I am well because I am sustained by community and I am well because I am called to serve and I am well because folks of open doors be able to speak and that well, this is also about being exhausted and on fire and seeing this is an opportunity to effect change. So I'm really happy to be What you all do nothing for me. I think the last two weeks I did not feel and know was constantly Trying to think sort of past this, but I feel as if I could really think about myself and what I was feeling and what was happening to my body. Because I just knew so many people are mourning their lost loved ones, so many people or traumatized I was, of course, feeling traumatized through their trauma. But I was just I was just trying to remain focused on trying to sort of clarifying explain that that very farmer and really the violence of anti black racism I sail about to say that I also know That you know, I needed to think about my own feelings and even my own wellness. And so I think maybe I was able to do that through writing or maybe not, But it's never go. Never ending. So struggle for me like I almost feel ashamed if I'm thinking about my own pain. What I know so many people are in paying, but But, as you stated, if we don't think about own pain as we think about other people's pain, and then we're going to end up hurt. Thank you for that. Both of.

R. V. yeah as for the Republicans they call the speech very partisan minority leader Todd govern also called the agenda ambitious financially he talked about putting money in the bank and saving money but he also laid out a lot of new areas where they're gonna be spending a lot more money an obligating the taxpayers to pay for those things going forward and it just seemed like laying out of a recipe for disaster in the future in terms of really keeping up with those obligations from a financial perspective the house of delegates made history yesterday electing a woman as speaker for the first time I lean filler corn from Fairfax expert as expected got the nod more than a hundred people rallied in the capital Wednesday NASA General Assembly let localities decide whether to move or change Confederate monuments the state controlled war memorials legislation to grant local control is failed to years in a row with Democrats in control supporters are optimistic this year Richmond city council Monday voted to ask the state for control over its monuments president trump spoke to the nation Wednesday in a room and says Iran is standing down after a missile attack to target to bases in Iraq where US troops are deployed Karen Travers has more the president's message was really aimed at dialing down the tensions between the US and Iran but it really felt like an abrupt shift after a week of fiery threats from the president and the president promising retaliation I mean he said it for Ron hit American assets the U. S. would hit back very fast and very hard that's what they did this week but the president said Arron appears to be standing down which is kind of ironic because it was a Ron who fired last but it did give the president a chance to take the first step back from the brink of all out war a vote is expected today in the house any proposal aimed at limiting the president's ability to take military action against Iran the vote comes amid intensifying democratic criticism of the killing of a top Iranian general the standoff over president trump impeachment trial deepening White House speaker Nancy Pelosi see the house speaker Nancy Pelosi is demanding more details and witnesses Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell says he will not haggle with Democrats especially those in the house your next news at seven o'clock news on demand and news radio W.
