With the league of women voters league of united latin american citizens and we did many events from taking out full page ads and and newspapers to coordinating individuals to show up and testify against the bills to rewriting the bills and getting many of our admits pass with version. That ultimately was not adopted but would have been much better if it had been adopted so it goes on and on the number of activities we had with the different communities different faith groups whether it was christian churches are our synagogues are moss. We had Religious people from all over that would be there with us and we continue to do that even since the regular session. We had rally two weeks ago. In austin with the league of women voters texas impact and league of united latin american citizens trying to continue to bring attention. And we're working with ministers now to try to work together different sermons or what have you citing scripture on one of the rabbis. It's such a tremendous job. I wanted to reach out to a some of the christian ministers to get them to do the same thing and so they're trying to put that together in terms of how we get into the church houses and start influencing people that can make a difference. Because you know we're in a different world now. It's not like it was when thurgood marshall and charles hamilton. Houston felt those battles. We're talking right now to people who really don't care i with martin luther king new and thurgood marcin. Those guys is that he might be conservative but those a certain way to reach many of the folks who were in power that time. We're in a different date now. People are indeed movement politicians movement judges. So right or wrong has no moment in quotient. The only thing that matters is whether or not you continue in office and so we have to look for those levers to try to move people so we try to make sure that we're sophisticated. And so that. The limited time and resources that we have and actions that we can take because we're all limited because of our numbers and we try to do that strategically so that we can try them a move the ball and try to get people who can notes the decision makers Texas you said something really prophetic earlier. Because we really are the ground zero right now and not because i'm trying to be protected. I wish we weren't rounds of bieber honest with you because of our population numbers Texas was forty nine point. Four percent of his adult population in two thousand ten were african american and latino and that number has grown eighty percent of texas growth is black brown and asian has since two thousand ten so we're looking at fears of a majority minority population and so that more than the trump lie is at is. What's at the root of what's occurring in texas people trying to make sure that black and brown people and not able to share power and so they're coming up with all kinds of different ideas and initiatives the the laws that were this pastime where extremely well thought out there were thought out Think tanks with a lot of money behind them and they sought ways and found ways to undermine voter efforts for people who look like us who think like us to start from the very beginning from vote registration. Go all the way through high. You actually count ballots You know it was so incredible that they had things that were actually included in the bill. That came out of the the committee that was conference committee of the senate and the house. After the past different versions. They came up with twenty pages of new laws and think about that twenty new laws and then once it's revealed the violence. The trump law allow a judge in space of his own whim to make a decision to change the outcome of an election. Everyone says well. We didn't put it in there when we when they destroyed soles to the polls They said well. We don't know how that have so as pretty amazing to me that you've got twenty pages of new legislation and that they were trying to force the democrat democrats to vote on and they didn't even know i got in there while the so important the way you try to make the democrats vote on it. Yeah yeah so on wednesday state. Legislators from around the country came to dc in support of the texas state. Legislators who left the state to prevent corum. And i believe friday is the thirty day in special session. So this thing won't get through. But i believe the governor is still threatening avenue still threatening to call one special session after another correct until this is until he's to push this voter suppression legislation through correct will pushed it through. But that's his plan. And so i need to be succesion and so i'm hoping one thing that we've the house members have been candidate leaders on this because they're the ones who broke warm but the same law applies in the senate. And so what. I'm hoping is that the senators We need to more democratic senators to break ranks nine. Did their thirteen. It takes eleven to break warm in the senate so we're hoping that somehow the democratic senators can break rank this time so you don't have so much own the house members because i think what the leadership in texas feels is that all they need to do is keep having special session after special session and they'll break the backs of the democrat legislated. Because how long can you stay out. How expensive is and how much is a personal cost. You your family your business. So i think that. That's what's actually being done now. But i i think that we we have some potential. We just need to put together efforts to try to to get two of those other four senators to decide. They're going to break ranks. So what's the hesitation in terms of breaking rates. Well i don't know. I think like there's one on name that i really have. Utmost confidence in ages thinks she work within the system doesn't see the wisdom but he's been one of the ones it's passed the much progressive legislation has always been there when you need him so We're just gonna have to try to come at him in a different way. And i think others don't have the breach of a relationship with the lieutenant. Governor lieutenant governors most powerful person in texas. Lieutenant governor knows how wheel power iran trump's campaign here in texas in thank. You even does things that really forces they that forces the governor's hand. I think the governor understands that the real power with the lieutenant governor and he understands that and so that's that's why the the senate has been large and in charge yet more.

"I also wanted to say, if people want to make a comment during the scheduled meetings of the commission you, you can do that, but it has to be on an agenda item. So they've been pretty particular about that. So you can, it's really easy, you can go on the redistricting commission website, you can go to redistricting michigan.org and it'll give you the agenda for the day. And I did go to the June 3rd public hearing I heard down and quite a few people off. So, what I remember is that there were several people teachers talking about how they wanted to combine three school districts, and I was trying to think if they were really contiguous or not, but I'm but I'm not sure. But the other one big one was keep Downriver communities together. And so when I when all this first came off, On the website, the public portal became available, I wanted to try it out. So I did go and practice with the the month, free map making tool that Jerry talked about. And I did make two maps. And so I made a map of the neighborhoods that month we're close to a nearby park, just to kind of see how it worked. And then I made one of its cultural places in, in Dearborn and then I made two off written comments. It mean, it's so easy. You're just, you know, free text in that case. I said well I hope it keep Dearborn and Dearborn Heights together and said again about Downriver wage and And I just wanted to say that Jerry was talking about Katie Fahey, who started the whole thing going. And I do remember when she was talking at the annex attack us, once you press first starting and it was just so exciting to see all that, enthusiasm and then just lastly went down and was talking about public speaking. Write it down to ad-lib. Okay, good, here's the website. Oh, wonderful now. Okay, so we want to hear from you. and then if we wonder what happens, if we click submit public comment, Yeah.

"Church or whatever wage. That would be your community of interests neighborhood associations, Mary, Joe gave me this idea neighborhood, associations are communities of interest. And in Dearborn there, I'm just going to use your bonus example since I lived here, dearborn's a big city and we have very many different types of Housing and communities. We have the south end of Dearborn. That has a lot of industry in a lot of pollution. And they actually have a lot in common with Detroit, in River Rouge because of that, those are very similar issues. The South Dearborn would definitely not want to be split up from the rest of that Community. There's also several masks in that neighborhood and they would have, that's where a lot of the people neighborhood worship. That's an important community of interest, there are historical homes in Dearborn, so there could be a community of Interest around the historical housing and preserving that wage. One of the things that's important to me is that there is personally adequate housing for everyone regardless of their income levels. So we need a degree of public housing but also small affordable homes and that to me is a community of interest, because in the area because that's something you want to have. You want to maintain for people, to have access to a housing and we want to keep Dearborn a diverse community and we want all those interests protected. Those are just some examples of that, some other ones, you know, where do you kids go to school? We talked about in a mini of interest group, that Redford is actually has two different school districts and is it? It would seem to me that both of those school districts. Their best interests would be served by being in one District because all of there's different groups of children being represented by two different districts and they would have more support and more of a voice if one. Yep. Representative represented. Both of them just another example industry. What kind of industry is it agricultural? Is it rural? Is it Urban? You know, is it off? Is it an auto company City?.

I use the term wentz political rats. hypocrites hypocrites hypocrites and politicians This is another decision are similar to citizens united that reverberates and we as activists have rights activists and others will have to really mobilize because we'll be working and fighting against for years ago. I was really struck by something in this decision that the basically the reasoning seemed to be if you were exposed as a donor to some of these groups should face potential harassment and that they wanted to protect folks from that. Is that something the first amendment protects us from is how does that. What's the legal leap there that's being. Here's a body of law that talks about associational privacy Actually it started with. Naacp case it starts with You know my lists. My by membership. Lists should be confidential because i i have a right to associate with whom i want and there's a chance that if i associate that that my physician would be undermined if you found out that i was a member of the naacp or the aclu or something like that. So there is. That's not an illegitimate concern. But when it's applied to donors Apparently giving supposedly confidential information to the regulatory authorities of of california. That's a different issue. That's not the the you know giving it to the globe that's giving it You know it's giving it to a regulatory authority. Now as i said there had been instances in which information was leaked but that the question is whether you undo the regime rather than tighten up the leaks all right of a final question for for both of you because you said something at the beginning of the interview about this court basically being partisan but picking their spots to paraphrase. What you said. And i'm just thinking back. We've talked before on this show about the importance of faith in institutions like the supreme court. And that feels to me like a pretty cynical approach if that's actually what's happening. What do you make of that. And how important is it for us to have faith in the supreme court as an institution. Well i think. I think it's important for us to have faith in the supreme court as an institution and certainly there have been Their indications that the the six quote conservative judges actually have different meaningfully different views on for example criminal justice issues. Gorsuch and cavanaugh have split on mostly on criminal justice issues and the and you know that reflects that of real Jurisprudential differences between them but in addition during this year there have been a number of times that a major precedent has been upended.

NAACP leader on diversity in Biden's Cabinet and commitment to civil rights
"Speech days after the election, Joe Biden think black voters for helping him win the White House. The African American community stood up again. For many with always having my back on, I'll have yours. Now. There's some concern that Biden isn't making good on that promise. At least seven civil rights groups are pressing to meet with the president elect, including the end of the P and the National Urban League. They want Biden to name or black leaders to top jobs in his administration. Marc Morial leads the Urban League mark. Welcome. Hey, it's great to be with you. Thank you for having me. My pleasure. And if and when you get a meeting with the President elect, what will you tell him? So importantly way look forward to a direct communication with the president elect, and we're gonna reaffirm our interest on behalf of the community that the number of Diverse cabinet members, particularly African Americans. Prominent and every level of the body Administration Cabinet sub cabinet. As well as at the White House. You know, we want to give the president elect due credit. He chose an excellent running mate, Senator Harris. He's made an important appointment of Cecilia Rouse, his chair of the president's Council of Economic Advisors, and Linda Thomas Greenfield as U. N ambassador. But we're heavily focused. What's known as a statutory Cabinet, defense and justice and transportation and commerce and labor and hot and education and HHS, For example, that is where The important levers of power are We're going to communicate that to him, and the second thing will be communicating. Eyes our interest in the public policy arena. We need aggressive enforcement of civil rights laws. We need strong investments through both stimulus. And infrastructure plans, and we need Focus on long term issues of racial justice, criminal justice reform, police justice reform just to name a few high priorities and finally With respect to cove it we need to ensure That the vaccine is safe and effective for all people and that there is a community based distribution system. To ensure that people in our community have access to the vaccine. I guess What I'm trying to understand is if you are actually concerned with what you've seen so far, or if you're just trying to get ahead of the process, As you point out, there have been many black officials appointed to keep jobs in the Biden administration says they're not done yet. Yeah, I think it's both. And I think it's uh they've been to statutory Cabinet nominees thus far. Treasury Three rather Treasury homeland security as well as the State Department, and that's important and we do have a concern and we do want to get ahead of the process and We want to be clear that we're looking for a cabinet. When it comes to African Americans and meets but really exceeds the high water marks of the Clinton and Obama cabinets. This is a different time. And the president elect is made of important public commitment to racial justice, and I believe he's serious about that, but toe execute that He's got to have people who have lived experiences. As well as professional qualifications, along with connections to the communities that have borne the brunt of the country's systemic racial injustice. Look, there's no doubt having a diversity of opinions from all walks of life is critical in any leadership role, but make the case why Race matters so much here. Ben Carson. I'm thinking of Ben Carson, a black housing secretary. I assume you don't agree at all with his policies on many black leaders At the same time, we're saying that outgoing Senator Doug Jones, a white man would make a great attorney general because of his record fighting for civil rights. So let me say this. Van Carson is a great doctor. I never thought Ben Carson was qualified. To be secretary of the Department of Housing and Urban Development. I thought he would have made made a great surgeon general. You made a great secretary of health. Human services. I think it was an example of picking a quote unquote black person and putting him in what some perceive to be a black position at the Department of Housing and Urban Development. And I think it was It was a mistake, and I think it was a disservice to Ben Carson. So I mean, it's important. Understand this is not just about a black face in a certain place.
