"community leader" Discussed on Discover Lafayette
"People meet and eventually start families because of people they met in leadership lafayette program. So i just think that the timing works out for you. The way that it's meant to in the year that you you end up in the program is is the cohort that you were meant to make those relationships with remember back again my cohort on the spokesperson for the fire department was in our class and was a presentation about Cajun cajun culture. And if it wasn't for him we wouldn't have had got deeper dive into the real history of lafayette about the creole influence. And we had the right. Mix of african americans caucasians and others people indicating background. People didn't come from that background that we had a free flow of information and it really opened my my mind two things i never heard about. Because i've always heard about the region agents coming from about rage. Ashley moved here back in the eighties Our cultures very much more complex than you can see just at first glance and i think leadership. Lafayette gives you a safe place to talk about things and actually debate with. Its kind of needed debate about things and no i understand completely. It's something that our our culture in our community here is so incredibly diverse. That sad that sometimes we forget to lift up the myriad of cultures and stories and histories that exist here and so what. I love about the leadership. Lafayette program is a really gives you an opportunity to forge relationship. So you're not just hearing a story as related by historian our presenter but you're experiencing it with with your diverse cohort of participants and so you really have to understand how different people move and live in this community and what it looks like if you live in a different geographic part of our of our city What a how schools look differently. Neighborhoods look differently access. How you grew up and so much of of how our lives is influenced by how we grew up. You just shared you moved from baton rouge so you're gonna have a different experience you know coming into the lafayette community learning about it than if you've grown up in the lafayette community and what we try to do. We work every year to recruit a diverse cohort and we measured diversity in a variety of ways and one. That's surprise people is that we try to have a mix of people who've lived here their whole life and newcomers because that's also a really. You're going to view our community very different. If you've if you've grown up here went to school here you into your career you example. The university had just recruited a leader. He had been here three months before he applied and was accepted into the leadership program. And so you come with different backgrounds. And it's been much easier in recent years to recruit newcomers because we have such strong and vibrant tech companies new companies who are actively recruiting. And so it's made it easier for us to recruit people who are newer to the city to really create a broad perspective across the cohort. You're building your program and Insofar as it involves young people wanted to bring up my memory. I talked about this. Call you my daughter. Kelly is not twenty two but when she was a junior at episcopal school katie on ship. Fine i didn't help. Arena is so hard for me to sit back and she applied and was accepted and at the time. This was boy five six years ago. Maybe about six years ago at the time. I think she might have been the only private school kids in the group in ashley. The france that she made from all the schools across our city in in our region. She was right outside. Lafayette resident via. But she not kids. Including vincent peer's son josh. They're still friends. She got to meet the governor ritual in which you're gonna do. I want to encourage people to stay tuned with the leadership institute because there's no better leadership program then be a junior in high school and not only meet new people that see how government works and how the nonprofit industry affects all of us and she's she's never over that experience really impacted her. If you can maybe just touch on it. Yeah so. Actually one of my stories about judy leadership. We have a current board member. Natalie lemoyne who works for home bank who is a lafayette junior leadership graduate anna leadership lathi graduate and is currently serving on our board of directors. And so we don't anymore but there was a time when we did some sock engineer leadership so she was able to talk about her experience sort of a high school and then her experience as an adult going through that same program. But you know the idea behind. It is civic participation. Doesn't have to start when you're an adult when your career and so another story that i love a lot of people don't know that laughing. Junior leadership was not built as part of leadership. Lafayette so dr j. A local doctor and went through Dr winther leadership lafayette. I'm very early on in the program's existence in was so impressed and asked himself. What might this look like if we offered this programming to high school. Juniors yes in for a couple of decades. He ran the program through his office through his doctor's practice. Yes he did. I'm with the help of his His office manager. And if you meet people who went through the program early on they'll tell you about their experience and i wish they love dr colada and carrying out this program the program. My timing might be off. But i think the program was a little bit after its twentieth year when it actually was efficiently connected with leadership. Lafayette for years. Dr collado ran the program. And i just am amazed by that story because to me it. It is a story of hope that if there's something you're interested in doing your in a passionate about doing you can do that. He had an idea for this program and launch it and created it right. He's a surgeon. I mean right like he's busy right. It's not it's all. He hasn't had this whole their practice to run on to do it and the students who have been able to meet when when i first started this role tried to do listening tour with anyone who would sit down with me long enough to talk and i love meeting with participants. He went through the program. Dr collado just talking about their experience getting to know him eventually. He transitioned out of the program. And melanie martin and mary nyheim two names. That just tightens in this community. Exactly as volunteers stepped up to run the program and built what it looked like to eventually alah to to take it over into into sort of get it to the phase that it's in right now very similar leadership. Lafayette the program. One month every month every month and so similar of focus on local government state government on education education but the friendships and camaraderie of the young leader. That's what i was going to say it was. I think that the same benefit from leadership lafayette. It's it's less about the content that we're delivering to you because everything that kelly learns different now so he said it's about six years ago. Our our school board is different or city councils. Different our mayor has different. Our superintendent is different. Our governor is different. All of those have changed since you went through the program but what sticks are the relationships that you build and it's learning about those systems with this group of peers helps you look at it differently. You're able to to build those relationships in those connections in a way that you wouldn't otherwise and really. I think all of the programs that we offer the best part of it is a relationship site you build because as you build your network you increase your chance of being successful out a swell governor john. Bel edwards must have been his first year in first term. Because there's a picture of her. She's at the podium acting like she's got her so these are the kind of members we have. He was so kind to young people. And i know that everybody else has been kind to someone. Encouraged people as rebuilding the program. They can probably reach out to you. Where did they go again to find out more about leadership. Lafayette engineer leader. Our website lead a katy anna dot. Org is their infant. Have asked you that. Didn't that you wanted to share. Because i really really believe in this program about where we're going. I think that that we have really been able to leverage our thirty plus years of programming in this community to step back and take a much broader perspective on leadership development. And so we now are looking at instead of just creating our programs for the sake of programs. How is it that we design programs that help move our community forward. I've talked a lot about relationships in the network that you build We recently introduced an activity. One of our board members is an expert in social network mapping and she helps us Build out the map of what your network looks like before leadership lafayette and what it looks like after you go through the program and the reason that is so important. There's if you want to follow up. I can nerd out and give you this research. But there's a lot of research on on the importance of networks that you build in the week ties that you build and so the weak w. e. w. e. a. k. So we think a lot about our deepest relationships right. Our best friend or spouse our family and those are important they help us navigate really difficult transitions but there's a lot of a correlation between the weak ties that you have and the number as it relates to your success so it's not so much that that we are best friends and call you every time i need something but just so much that we have enough over relationship that when you want to interview someone you want someone for the podcast. You reach out to me. Someone tells you that they're interested in the program. You know to reach out to me sort of enough of those week relationships that we want to run for school board. We knew how to reach out to you. If we have a question about navigating our kids bus schedule you know how to reach out to and we want to start a new fundraiser. If we want to go back to college all these different life transitions if we know someone who might know someone that really helps determine our success and so what we're trying to do as an organization is to create multiple entry points so that you don't have to wait for the next leadership. Lafayette cycle to open up that we want to provide an opportunity every month. If you reach out to us we can engage you in our program. If you have a specific civic goal that you want to accomplish we want to help you get there. We want to be the conduit that helps you build those weak ties and we want you to build hundreds of them so that you were connected in the community. You're more likely to stay. You're more likely to get engaged. And the end result for lafayette is that we have a better connected community of people who are invested in the best interest and the best out of our community to people need to be a member of one katie to take advantage of no they. Don't we have multiple entry points because we wanted to meet you where you are. I mean we've talked leadership. Lafayette being eleven months. Long two thousand dollars and we understand that that's not always the right program at the right time for people. Sometimes it's something that you build up to and so we're creating multiple entry points. Maybe it's a ninety minute webinar that we host for free. Maybe it's a our intro latvia program which is only two days and in a much more affordable price point. I'm an each of these programs are open to anyone in the community For the most part when we talk about civic activation we really do focus on what's happening in lafayette parish but a lot of our progams focus more on general leadership development. How does a nonprofit bore general leadership skills. We really serve all of acadian. A we were able to lean into that during the pandemic we embrace virtual programming and serve a much larger geography. And the idea is that we will meet you where you are either a shorter term program or longer term program so wherever you are in your civic germany can help continue to build your capacity to get engaged involved removing cove. Hitler really waking up with lost a lot. This past year with lost a lot of engagement and there simi opportunities ashley I know that leadership. Lafayette one courage people to maybe look at the lafayette consolidated government Boards they can serve one maybe look and see joining the seventy five at a young leadership program. There's so many things we can do to get involved and not all of us have the means that i think you're helping connect dots for people where they are as you said someone thank you for not leadership role groups like what have you found outside of leadership. Lafayette like. what do you think young people coming up. What would you encourage them to get involved in. Definitely say reach out to us so that we can help you connect with where you want to be think that there are a lot more opportunities available than we sometimes think about a matter of finding things that align with your values you talked about the local boards and commissions veronica williams. Who's a clerk of the council leadership graduate. Yes who is a wealth of knowledge with the ten year that she's had she's a friend of the program who helps us to get people appointed to boards and commissions and we've actually worked very closely with seven. Oh five that you mentioned Through roddy our partnership with the seventy five. I'm where last year we really canvassed our membership across both organizations so that we were encouraging people to sign up and apply to be on boards and commissions and we helped them navigate the process. Here's what it looks like to go to the meeting. Here's how you submit your resume. Here's how you identify your council person to ask them to advocate on on your behalf. So that's one example of us working with the seventy five to help find civic engagement. There's overlap definitely between the membership of la and seventy five and then there's some places where membership differs and so we try to work together to let people just know what their options are. We also have a really good relationship with junior league of lafayette. Several of every year several members of the cohort are also members of of of junior league. I'm happening is there's this cross recruiting so we have graduates who are currently engine. Nearly could go back until their. They're julie members who apply for leadership. Lafayette they then get into the leadership. Lafayette cohort they talk about their experience and junior league. They in recruiting members of the leadership. Lafayette class aren't yet members. We see a lot of that sort of cross. Pollination that happens when we work together to help people Get into and there's so much out there it's really about finding what's going to work within your schedule that's online with your values and your goals for the community and always recommended people. Don't overextend yourself fun. The ones that work for you one hundred percent. That's it focused all in on what that might be. It might not be another civic organizations. Some people might not be craving that civic membership instead they might want to join the board of directors of united way or girl. Scouts are there yes their neighborhoods association. Exactly and so if that's it. That's an issue. Want to be in Don't feel like you have to join these other organizations Let that be the place that you that you shine and we can help you really use your talent in that space and i think an interest speaking as we wind down. You don't have to be done person looking at this. I didn't get involved locally. In lafayette i was involved in church and our daughters schools was really my mental forties. When i got more involved in an talked about junior junior junior league. You don't have to be like any age now. They're taking any age on so a lot of these boards and commissions generally gutter groups. If you can come in a someone who's charter now. Going off to college know you don't have to be a thirty year old. That's looking to get involved. Might be forty five and going. Finally my gosh i have time. I really appreciate you. You making that point. Because even the seventy five has adjusted their turns yet lords. It's not just young leaders. Anyone can be a member of the seven hundred five. Yes anyone anyone can. There's that there's some language about voting rights but anyone can be a member. And here's but here's why i think that for for so long. We segmented groups based on generation and we made an assumption that if you're near your mid twenties or early thirties. This is the time that you're getting involved and engaged. And what happened. Is that we just further silo generations. And so we'll just can't do exactly in the end people. That's what happens if the same time. You're starting your career starting your family and you just don't have the bandwidth to do it One of my favorite graduate stories. Joey durrell credits has leadership lafayette experience for alternately deciding to run for mayor and he talks about his sort of his civic. The peak of civic engagement came after his children. We're getting ready to leave the home. And i love that story because sometimes people feel like. They've missed their mark. They miss their time. And that is that is so far from true and and a personal passion project. I'm trying to reach people who are getting closer to retirement and pull them in if they haven't already gone through one of our programs because now imagine you you have the wealth of some new. Potentially the wealth of knowledge of someone who's potentially worked for four decades. Is that a time. Where exactly at time where they're pulling away from professional career match what we could do that. Person sat on our board of directors or they lead volunteer to help fund raiser are they served on a commission the time in the knowledge that they have to vote is incredible and so i think what a lot of organizations are doing now is. They're realizing that. Thought only when you're young and your career that you're looking for that we have peppers and transitions to our entire life. And so creating that opportunity where you still feel welcomed innocent belonging no matter what age that you are to engage with the community. Kick off your involvement. Well thank you that encouraging. Because i really believe that that no matter what age are we'll have something to offer young people who've been also seasoned people you know they have some more time together. So ashley mud executive director the leadership institute and katie on. What pleasure to have here and my neighbor. We have a great neighborhood here.

That that that's got to really lift people up to because after what what folks have been through there in the scare that they had fromthe water situation.

And then here, you get a presidential candidate that shows up in your city and expresses its concern to you. That's gotta really, Ah, uplift people. Yes, when somebody had that type of concern called it's time quite a few residents was dying from the wire. And you know, and it was.

Why would I go out my way to vote for you if I'm not getting none in return? And that's what I mean. Well, and and that's the reason that people make decisions on candidates. Let's face it. Your constituents voted you in because they thought you were best for their interests. There in the city of the Flint City of Flint, you were best for the people there, right? Absolutely. Yeah, That's that's why people get voted in. So, so good for you for thinking on your own like that. Have you got any pushback on that endorsement, by the way? Was not pushed back. I got rude, acute.

R. C. does not formally air sea now alight they always talk about unleashing abundance and it's really just looking around and seeing what it is you have right now that you can do something with and they really they're they're amplifying that you now to the far corners absolutely yeah yeah so they're doing that they're doing financial donations and it's just it's a you know this is the name and I will say this very personally that this is the neighborhood that I live and yeah and these are the businesses that you know I think I can speak for all of us that in Minneapolis specifically these are businesses that we patron and the reason that we care about it right so you see the what they are doing the mobilization the resources and all the things they're doing for the community and we want to amplify that today absolutely and I did want to mention to that pimento Jamaican kitchen was the subject of a violent attack over the weekend I wanted you to I didn't want you to to talk about that as well since we do have time so can you talk a little bit about that yeah so you know all the information that I have is essentially sourced from social media you know and and and important you know sources that we go through on social media but they were specifically targeted by people who inciting violence in the neighborhood yeah you know yeah and that's a lot of what we are it's it's hard because I think well I'm not gonna say it's hard it is what it is I the news is on location is paying really good attention to the bigger stories those of us who are living in the neighborhoods where things have taken place I'm are hearing different stories are hearing more specific stories are seeing different things and so it's this is like an onion this is like a multilayered onion when you talk about what has led to the place we are now and how the information is being spread and who knows what and who's hearing which story I don't know that that story about her mentor Jamaican kitchen and Tommy Beavis was actually as public as it was like you said Holly for those who live in that neighborhood who patronize these businesses those are not the stories that are maybe being told by the news and not because the news wouldn't want to tell those stories but because of the news our news media is busy with the big picture right and that is useful and necessary right now but we we you know if you're living in those areas you may have heard different stories about different real businesses and how they are adjusting or how they are how they are being I'm threatened in any given moment yeah absolutely I'm if this is I'm just going to be upfront and honest about it we're tired we're trying to bring you a lot of information in in an ever changing moments so we hope to have a conversation with Tommy Davis he's not available we're fine with that we get it at some point we'll get him out at some point from fermented checking kitchen I do also want to say in the next hour we were hoping to have our net her friend who is now has been activated once again in the National Guard Major Terrence Roberts and he's busy with some stuff yeah he's I really hope that we get a chance to talk to him at some point because I I saw an article that talked about I think some of the work that he's doing which is to really or at least I know the National Guard is doing and I think that he is involved in this which is to sort of a dress some rumors and gossip that's going around it's really it's been fascinating to watch the power of rumors in this moment because people can use those things for their own nefarious purposes and so it's important to have somebody because you've we've all been victim of this and I hate to use the word victim but we've all seen this behavior happened over the last few days where some information comes out everybody runs towards that and then very quickly if we learned that that's not actually correct information and when you're dealing with people's safety in security there it is it's a very high stakes it's a very high stakes endeavor so I'm glad to know that there are people out there who are trying to correct the record and and keep rumors from sort of getting out of control such that people feel unnecessarily on safer actually are made unsafe because of them right now hopefully if he's involved in that will will be able and can talk about it because I don't know what they're able to talk about but we'll find out without a major H. Robertson yeah which by the way it's such an adjustment to us because when we first met major Roberts in major Robertson's captain Roberts and so we keep and or like somebody got a promotion we gotta make sure we get back up to that but we are paying attention to you know what he's doing with the National Guard is doing and we're hoping to have an opportunity to talk with him at a different time and we certainly understand why he's not able to join us today but we do have some other things lined up for you in the next hour we are going to talk with a friend of the show Carla who lives in the mid town exchange building and they have some very I mean they really have been kind of in the in the thick of it the last few days and there are some harrowing stories one of them I know is about how the security guard at that building helps single handedly protects the residents of that building when violence was being executed and has been carried out in the in the streets in that area also we are going to talk with rob Williams from the Sheraton story we've been talking about how the areas affected have become a food desert and one of the things that the shared in story does so well is help provide food for school school families for their school age kid fan the families of school age children through their outreach and how that is **** has shifted all righty during the time of covered nineteen and is now going to be shifting yet again as we really confront the reality of this summer in this area that has now become a food desert when we come back on the Culina Bradley show if we kind of give some people some more resources yes things at least some things that you can concretely grab onto and helpless we'll do that after this on my talk on a seven one my top one oh seven one hello my doctors it's doctor Valerie lemay not plastic surgery consultants any dina I'm excited to share that we are now scheduling appointments to see.

I D. L. bones and a few others that we can talk about and how small businesses can take advantage of that at this time and no pun intended but we all need to care right now the account is locked you're right I agree with that you know like not my firm we applied for the P. P. P. were able to get that and look fortunate rescue people what that involves and I know that takes more difficult but that is a fable protection plan in the paper work had to be supplied and you documented your costs and they paid us or give us a loan two times two months worth of salary as well as some overhead expenses rent and utility and to be very clear if you utilize that money and do not let anyone tell you keep a certain level of employment the money can turn into a grant and will not be have to be paid back as a loan sh and one has to follow really stricter rules for example we kept it in one account from the drop down only a overall and specific expenses if there is an order of their request is to verify your trail and I think that's probably one of the things you would recommend to your clients is that right many absolutely Renee and so what I would recommend is that you documented your files exactly what you're using these funds for how they're being used because there's a very specific criteria and there is a reason why it's called the cheque protection lamb it's so that you can protect the payroll if your this allows you to be able to bring back any furloughed employees and it is intended to cover up to eighty four panelists answers and any additional amounts from making payments to work certain debt obligations so really you're absolutely right we have to be very careful how it's used and have to be used for the purposes of making sure that state to work the count that they're looking forward to talk about what are what are the eligibility criteria I know that and you start with the P.

"Across the country community leaders. Like Joe are doing outreach. To make sure that people in their areas not only understand the importance of filling out the census but also trust that they can safely hand over their personal information to the government and with the full census rollout approaching. We want to know whether you're planning to fill out the twenty two thousand census when it reaches your home. My name is Tom. I'm calling from Sioux Falls South Dakota I'm not particularly interested in filling out the census form in that Curran Oi has come about because of the president activities of our president among other things I probably will but at the moment. I'm really torn unlike Tom. Most US said definitively that you will fill out the census but many of you echoed his concerns about how the trump administration has handled the process. Rich from Gilroy California. Yes I plan on filling up the scent. I would rather do on paper than through the Internet. I don't trust the current government to play by the same rules as the rest of America. This is Tara Webster calling from Saint Albans Vermont. Yeah I'm totally planning on completing the sensitive. It's important for many issues. It shouldn't be a controversial topic and making it such as yeah another way. The current administration has damaged the US. Hi this is Doug from Portland Oregon. I do plan on filling out the census but I do feel. It's a shame that it is so politicized right now. Others of you told us how your personal experiences have shaped your understanding of the senses. This is David from Portland. Yes I feel. The census is a very important tool for public well-being. I'm worried about what is how and how took a survey analysis class in college and I know how you ask. The question changes as cold showers all the time if the questions. This time are different than in previous sensitive. I'm concerned about why they were changed. And who directed it? There are people in government who underestimate the intelligence discernment and knowledge of our people. We know when we're being game. My name is Catherine Chairman. I'm calling from Portland Oregon. I believe in the census as someone with family members with undocumented status and who are docker recipients. I planned to boycott because the proposal to include the citizenship question was so troubling to me. Now that the question is not on the census I have not only gotten a job as a bilingual census. Taker I will also encourage everyone. I know to participate because representation is important. Though this is an wells from Omaha Nebraska will definitely fill up my senses form because it's important for the government to know who's where appropriate money but the most important thing about my answer is I want to work. As a census worker going door to door to get information from people who had not killed out there for him and it was such a pain. I mean cost them a lot of money to send out extra people to retrieve this information so everyone should definitely feel underperforms as soon as possible and turn back thank you we. WanNa keep hearing from you. As a census approaches. Keep calling us at eight seven eight my take can also send us a tweet were at the takeaway. It's the takeaway. I'm a ruined vinegar Paul. The Video Game. Fortnight made one point three billion dollars in revenue last year. A lot of this money comes from in game purchases. Players can make for their avatars different costumes. Weapons Armor and the answers they can perform. These dances can cost around five dollars up to nearly ten epic games. The Creator for nine says the game has over two hundred fifty million players that adds up to a lot of money. Being spent on digital dances money. The creators of these dances are actually seeing for years now. Epa Games has been taking dance moves from various sources and not crediting the originators or paying them. A significant number of these dances. Come from black creators. Fortnight is not the only platform or this is happening online influencers using the social media APP. Tick talk have also beginning fame using GANZ MS from black creators in crediting. Them is these influencers. Become rich from endorsement deals and added revenue in the like. The creators of these dances generally remain unknown. While take talk and fortnight are still relatively new outlets there's a long history of stealing content and profiting from UN credited black creators joining us now to talk about this. Is Taylor Lorentz a technology reporter at the New York Times covering Internet culture and freelance culture writer Shamir Ibrahim? Thanks to you both for joining us. Thank you for having me. Thanks Shamir Talk to me about what's happening in fortnight. And who are the people creating the dances that four nights taken and sold right so fortnight is a video game that is actually all multiple forms and it's standard. Rpg where you can actually go experience. Multiple parts of the universe But also within it there are different things you can actually purchase. Us Endgame Experiences. And those are what are called emotes within the emails you can purchase different skins and different actual different attributes. Additionally to that you can purchase actual dance moves right and those dance moves are various things. You can do the worm. You can do the mockery now. I think but various different things that we all know. Us classical dance the Charleston but also there are more modern dance moves that are kind of very distinctly attached to modern block culture. And they're very decontextualize. Modern Buckhalter like there is the Mili- rock that's in there. But it's not called Emily Rock. It is called ironically the swipe it if they rename it here exactly. They rename it. They decontextualize it and they actually mimic the exact dad's move beat for beat There's actually multiple youtube videos if you actually go online of active fortnight fans and evangelists who look at all the dads moves and superimposed them or put them next to The actual original dance moves and put them screen for screen. Beat for beat showing things that same dance moves. So it's the Mili- rock it's the blackboard. Jay Shoot Dance. Which they're actually jumping up and down jerking their legs back and forth the classic. Drop it like it's hot. Snoop dogg dance. That's kind of icon it to the early two thousands There are a variety of other dances were barrels classic. Carlton Dance and almost everyone knows from the Mid Nineties. And so as people start to recognize that that became. Well they're paying five dollars a pop to get this in the hundreds of thousands if not millions. No-one seeing that revenue so the Marach is by artists named to Millie. Who's from East flatbush? He's not making that amount of money. When that song blew up it took a while for it to actually get big. It got few million views on YouTube. But he's largely making his money from Tory. He's not making any proceeds from actually seeing that and then licensing platform whatsoever. Have any of these dance. Craters taken action against fortnight. For essentially appropriating. They're happy so All three of the artists that I've mentioned have actually filed suits against epic games and they've essentially filed rider publicity lawsuits as well as intellectual property law suits and it's an interesting claim right because for a long time in dance. There's been such the claim that you cannot copyright dance because it's your copy already movement. It's hard to copyright movement on essentially and it's kind of that vague space that's always been that obscure ability for black creativity to always be able to be obscured right and be able to be appropriated over time but what's the new arguments coming into the spaces that survivor publicity. Right are cultured. Our creation is actually part of our brand right. Carlton is a barrel is inextricably associated to the Carlton Dance Right and one component of the lawsuits to millie. I'm his suit. The lawyers were arguing that they actually traced two million the music video and put it in the actual video game. That was what they were arguing. The suit so what? We're really arguing from a digital space that we're copying and pasting digitally these people. It's actually to millie. You're taking his person hood and putting that in a video game so that's where the right of publicity some comes in that's why they were doing in California So that's where they're starting to try to do. These suits like no. This is part of my identity. This is pardon me. You don't have the right to do this without my permission And that's where talking about reclaiming our rights to cultural production tiller a talk to us about tick talk. Who are some of the influencers who are gaining fame using these dances? Well Yeah I mean. There's there's tons of top influencers on tech talk and you know they're all kind of doing all. These popular dances a lot of the most popular. Tucker's are white.

"Today on the takeaway February eighteenth it's almost census time but it appears. Oklahoma is not really prepared. We're coming from behind in Oklahoma and it makes it that much harder on the private sector. Nonprofits out there trying to make sure that the people we serve accounted and is the number of priests in the Catholic Church continues to decline. We look at the debate over whether or not the church should require celibacy for priesthood bus. How can young black creators get the credit they deserve once? Banned news go viral sort of wide spread problem. And there's a lot of other calls out there girls and boys that are still kind of confirming. It got named get a lot to get to get going breakdown. That sense of excitement even euphoria. You're feeling in the air. Perhaps it's time the twenty twenty census is now underway two weeks ago. The Census Bureau counted. Its first person in rural Alaska next month. Counting will begin in earnest around our country. The constitution requires us to count every single person in the United States without exception that was Democratic Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney Chairwoman of the House Committee on oversight and Reform Speaking last week at a hearing on the Census and while the countrywide rollout of the census is still on track for a mid March. Start Date at the oversight. Hearing officials from the Government Accountability Office warned lawmakers at the Census Bureau has missed several key benchmarks in the run-up according to the Gao though shortcomings include not hiring enough census workers and failing to partner with an adequate number of community organizations across the country. But it's not just up to the federal government to ensure complete count in the two thousand twenty census across the country. Some states have allocated tens of millions of dollars towards since its outreach but others like Oklahoma haven't set aside any funding at all. The census year came up on a period of time when it was a new governor's administration and we have a governor. Who's not familiar with politics? In general. He came from the private sector on a lot of his cabinet. Secretaries and staffers are also coming from private sector and they didn't realize that the census even though it's a federal issue does require states to provide support. That's Joe Dorman former Oklahoma state representative. Nco The Oklahoma Institute for Child Advocacy Joe and other nonprofit leaders in his state have partnered up in an attempt to make sure Oklahoma does have an accurate count in the next Census and he told me that while Oklahoma lawmakers initially dropped the ball on funding for the census some state agencies have managed to pick up the slack they found money by basically reducing budgets and other areas because of the critical nature of the census. A one a good example is department of Commerce's charged with supporting new addresses to the US census in Oklahoma the State Department of Commerce submitted. Three hundred forty thousand new addresses to the US Census Bureau part of that is because Oklahoma really didn't take the sense assessories over the last two decades either so there was plenty of room to grow but fortunately the staff that's working on this in the state agency has Done the work. That was needed. We're still missing the mark compared to other states when you look at California putting in more than one hundred and eighty million dollars compared to US piecemeal project together. It really makes me nervous. That we're we're not going to have the count that we should in our state. We should mention that. You ran for governor. As a Democrat in twenty fourteen and lost to Republican Mary Fallon to what extent has partisanship play a role when it comes to securing census resources in Oklahoma? Fortunately when it comes to talking to lawmakers it impacts them directly. The fewer people counted in their area. That means they're district's grow in size. And that means more mileage. They have to cover to get that count because every legislative district of the state is based upon population. So it's been an easy sell. Our State Senate formed a complete count committee the pro. Tem the Senate who's a Republican and the Democratic leader joined together to complete count committee to make sure that senators understood the need for this working to try and do similar things in the State House and fortunately the state agencies have taken it very serious referenced. Governor stood earlier. One of the things administration has done is created an ambassador program within each state agency that serves the population to make sure that each agency is aware of what's going on with the Census and we'll help spread information to the clients that they serve and the individuals receive services to understand the importance of filling out the census paperwork this year and an undercount ultimately were hurt the state regardless of whether you're a Democrat or Republican correct that is correct a that estimates. We hear about seventeen to eighteen hundred dollars per person per year. If someone's not counted and the reason why she is so involved in this as the zero to five age group is the hardest account because a single parent with two or three kids. If they don't fill out the paperwork their kids are missed. And it's not just for that one year it's for a ten year period so we lose out on those federal dollars. So that's one group you mentioned Young children who are at risk of being undercounted. What other groups are we talking about? Every minority falls into hard to count area generally because of lack of resources go into those communities because generally minority populations live in impoverished areas at a greater rate and so trying to combat that poverty that impacts so many individual Oklahoma's and Americans were trying to get this information out to them get the assistance to them. I also have a rural population especially in Oklahoma with so many tribal members living in the rural areas. We're doing our best to partner with the thirty nine sovereign nations that are headquartered in Oklahoma one. Good example the CHOCTAW nation of Oklahoma lost out on more than a million dollars in a grant which they sought because they didn't have an accurate count. Changes that happened with the sincere will allow individual tribal members to be able to list their individual nation rather than just simply a native American and Alaskan Indian. We know that in the run-up to the census this sense in particular trust is a serious issue in getting people from certain communities to fill out the census. How are you addressing those concerns in Oklahoma working with individuals that are familiar in each community? We WanNA have familiar faces talking to individuals and conveying that that information because that will develop that sense of trust one example. We sat down with about forty different partner organizations that work through the homeless alliance and Oklahoma sharing that information with each other organizations to intern. Date back to their staffers in hopes that their staff will share that information with the homeless population that served so if an individual is familiar with someone that message coming from them as going to have a much greater level of trust. So what do you think? Will there be an accurate count and Oklahoma for the twenty twenty cents is if we have any say in this. We're going to make sure that the word is spread as far and wide as possible. If you look at the hard to count map that's put together on one. The census websites far northwestern Oklahoma in far southeastern Oklahoma are much of the problem area. In far northwestern area. We have a Latino workers on farms and in different factories and southeastern Oklahoma. That's heavily populated by tribal citizens and while of the issues. We have down there is. It's hard for standard statewide media to reach those areas because they simply don't receive any of the network news out of the Oklahoma City area so we're trying to get creative and spread it through nontraditional methods through social media through billboards newspaper advertisements the ways to reach those individuals. I feel confident between the public and private partnerships. Were seeing an Oklahoma. We're going to do much better than we've done. The last two rounds and I feel good about the census effort and Oklahoma even without the dollars that were missing out from the state government.

"Why we build bridges to be connected to one another I'm sure I was nine years old when I came to America with my family we migrated from Jamaica from my first job working as an intern at the New York City and age make about to attending city university than opening a business and helping minority men and women find employment in the media to becoming a mother and a community leader I've been building bridges in crossing them my whole life I build bridges between constituents in our community and elected officials that represent between different nationalities and races and political party lawmakers should be working together to build a stronger safer more prosperous America but your representative in Washington chooses self promotion over Sir conflict over constituent resistance over assist queens and the Bronx need someone who will create jobs instead of turning them away someone to unite the fight in Washington and help you build a bridge to a better future for yourself instead of pushing for a pay raise for her so you deserve someone fighting for you not fighting for the limelight you deserve someone who will focus on immigration infrastructure and education that's why I'm running for Congress I believe bridges are about connecting on bringing people together and getting us to where we need to go join me let's unite the fight and build new bridges together bridges that will unite us and take us to a brighter future for the next generation I'm sorry Larry and I approve this message all right Shuri Murray is now announced she announced on Hannity the other night that she is running for the seat of well the real speaker of the house.

"Is by and large a really good police force for folks that are committed to the work and committed to the work of community policing and building meaningful relationships within our community. What we have to be able to do is hold people accountable when they are not contributing significantly when their when their behavior is inconsistent with that that's true for frontline workers that required discipline or something like that. It's a drain on the ninety nine percents or whatever percent of police officers that are trying their best to do a good job to see one of their colleagues get away with stuff over and over like, we need to be able to speak truthfully about you know, and hold police officers accountable who are not. Who are not acting in the best interest consistently with with with the city. That's true as well. For for our chief the chief really needs to have. I think we need a police chief to to be thinking first and foremost about the role that they play as a community leader and the importance of building trust and bridging relationship and ensuring that young that that everyone who lives here feels like just as you need the mayor to speak for you, you need the police chief to to be able to speak for you. And I think sometimes we get caught in this sort of divide where folks interpret the police chief is speaking for the police department, and I think that's where that that bridge and that trust becomes problematic. When I talk to young people in our community. I just had a sit down with a dozen young black men teenagers in. Who said, you know, we we don't wanna be.
