Where Memphis area legal services attorneys help tenants start applications for rental aid.

We will bring you to zero and you'll get a fresh start a fresh start. That's what's new even if evictions aren't thanks to the billions in federal aid tenants who are behind have a chance to stay in their homes due to a federal court ruling in July. Judges here in Tennessee haven't been bound by the CDC order for more than a month. The judge Gardner, the CDC order delayed the inevitable while in Memphis, they started resolving cases. We've been able to deal with the problems to give these people and landlords some closure so that they can move on. The most recent CDC ban was intended to give states and localities more time to get assistance out to renters facing eviction. But it's been slow going by the end of July. Nationally, just over five billion of the $25 billion allocated had been spent. Several states have used less than 5% of the federal money so far. But in Memphis and

Supreme Court hears arguments in voting rights case out of Arizona

"So i just wanna know the supreme court case this week because it's one of the biggest election cases in the decade it's about section two of the voting rights act which is the main provisions. And how what the test should be for having to prove a violation of this part of the voting rights act and this is a big question because we lost the other part of voting rights. Act that had the justice department and the role of pre approving things like closing polling places. And so now what's left. After a fact ability to sue if the vote has been abridged or deny two african american spanich or language community voters like native americans in the supreme court arguments. This week in some ways. It seemed like the party's weren't that far away from each other for what the test should be some kind of substantial effect on a minority group. Except i should say the republican party of arizona which wanted the standard to be that basically any race neutral voting regulation would pass muster no matter what discredit on those groups. But what. I think really is very likely to come from this. Conservative majority a ruling. That makes it much harder to sue that you're going to have to show a substantial effect. That has nothing to do with socio economics. For example that they're just gonna really raise the bar here. And i should note that chief justice john roberts has been a longtime interest of his since he was court clerk. He's the author of shelby county which gutted the other part of voting rights act in two thousand thirteen. And so this is one where it looks like the liberals on the court are probably going to lose and it's going to be quite a big deal so one to watch

Conscience of the Country: A Tribute to John Lewis

"Congressman John Robert Louis was born in Troy Alabama on February twenty first nineteen, forty, two sharecroppers, Willie Mae, and Eddie Lewis. He is known for telling the story of preaching chickens at the boy from troy as he was nicknamed went on to become revered world leader and fearless advocate for voting rights organizing sit ins in. Nashville in nineteen sixty and becoming one of the original freedom writers Mr Lewis joined the Movement for civil rights and never looked back. As the chairman of snake he served as the youngest speaker at the march on Washington in nineteen, sixty three. In nineteen, sixty, five alongside reverend hosea, Williams Congressman Lewis led a march for voting rights across the Edmund Pettus Bridge in Selma Alabama where he endured violent attacks by state troopers and vigilantes. Mr. Lewis fell to the ground with a fractured skull and five months later, president Lyndon B, Johnson signed the voting rights act of nineteen, sixty five until now. On the other side of that bridge Mr Lewis marched on into a life in career of activism and public service. He lost his first attempt at running for Congress in nineteen seventy seven was appointed the same year by President Jimmy Carter to the Director of action a Federal Agency for volunteerism. He then won a seat on the Atlantic City Council in nineteen eighty one and five years later ran for Congress in one. So much of the conversation about congressman, John. Lewis has been about his activism, but he stood on so many legislative accomplishments including sponsoring or co sponsoring more than eleven hundred bills. One of the most notable bills gave us the National Museum of African American History and culture in two thousand three. He served as a subcommittee chair for oversight for the prestigious ways and means. Committee, and after the retirement of Congressman John Conyers. became the dean of the Congressional. Black Caucus in twenty nineteen, he presided over the House floor as Congress passed hr four. Since his passing the bill was renamed the John Lewis Voting Rights Act which was adopted by unanimous consent. Before being admitted to the hospital, MR? Lewis stood in the heart of Black Lives Matter Plaza. He took his last breath on July seventeenth twenty twenty. But his legacy lives on in all of us. We begin this John Lewis. Tribu. where he also began with civil rights joining me for this very important conversation are Vanita Gupta President and CEO of the Leadership Conference on civil and Human Rights Derek Johnson, president and CEO of the of Lacey Pe-. Reverend, Michael Pfleger the senior pastor of the faith community of Saint. SAVINA. Reverend Dr William J Barbour, the second president of repairs of the breach and Co Chair of the poor people's campaign. An latasha Brown, Co founder and chief doer of black voters matter. A thank you all so much for making time to talk with me today about on. John Lewis. So I want to start with I'm. VANITA. Because of your work at the Department of Justice of course. I believe the year before you got to DOJ. The the case, the decision that gutted the voting rights act shelby versus holder, and so I wanna hear from you on some of the things that you experienced working with Mr Lewis on the other side of that because we know that right after that, all of the advocacy picked up to reinstate section five to get the voting rights on provision where they needed to be in Congress. And so just talk a little bit about some of your work with Mr Lewis on those issues. Shore. Is Truly an honor to be here with my. Warrior colleagues and friends and loved ones in the movement. Especially on today Angela. I think probably all of us were in tears watching Mr Lewis Funeral you know twenty thirteen is you mentioned that United States Supreme Court gutted the heart of the voting rights act in a devastating decision the shelby county versus holder decision. That really took away the longstanding tool of one of the most effective pieces of federal legislation in our nation's history in the voting rights act. That quired states with long histories of racial discrimination in voting to pre clear with the United States Justice Department changes made at the local level for election practices that had racially discriminatory impact. And the removal of that tool within hours of that decision coming down for the United. States. Court states like, North Carolina Texas enacted, Monster? Voter. Laws doing everything from. Putting forth restrictive voting laws cutting back early voting same day registration. And it took years to litigate and to hamlet the Justice Department did working with advocates and activists in all states. Where so years for federal courts in a place like North Carolina finally say that the State legislators North Carolina had enacted there. Monster Voter Suppression Law would such surgical precision to disenfranchise African Americans and meanwhile countless elections had taken place but Mr Lewis of legacy was that in the face of this overwhelmingly bad decision for voting rights he immediately. Went to action, which is always his way was never in a would not allow despair to hold him back inside we need to do everything we can restore it in went to work with legislative partners in the Congressional Black Caucus to put forth a bill immediately to restore it on every prior reauthorization of the voting. Rights. Act angelides always been done under. The Watch of Republican president and at least one house of Congress being Republican the unfortunate thing is after this decision, the really has not been bipartisan support and but Mr Lewis Year after year would stand at the podium introduced the law in say or in it for the long haul I've been there before I almost lost my life fighting for this law. In one, thousand, nine, sixty five, and we will persevere to us and we've got to keep our eye on the prize and we're not gonNA. Let go until the day that the bill becomes law. So in this moment. On where we're seeing a lot of performance morning by Senate Republicans who obstructed day after day everything that he has stood for and fought for with his life. It is time not only for us to restore the voting rights act passed the voting rights advancement act but to do everything else that we can to ensure open voting and go beyond it as President Obama said today won't be enough to rest and return to the status quo. It is time for this country to unregarded into make our democracy work for all of us in Gulf Far Beyon- restoration of the voting rights act in this moment.

"Shelby county school kids will be eating ghetto. And then you'd read they need to do that, you know inside milk, and you really don't you were doing a big public service back then? Yeah. Yeah. Because I mean, it was either in the if you didn't catch it in the newspaper, you had to decide what you know, where you're going to pack your lunch or not. Yeah. And he didn't take the paper you, you know, radio played played a particular role in. All right. I'm gonna ask you this question. To me. There's a fifty fifty shot that you're going to nail this. What what is a fifty fifty shot? I don't. Okay. Well. And it's just it's just a it's it's a funny question because it just came to mind, we were thinking of school lunch means what item. What what quality of school pizza made it to where what was the one thing you can count on school pizza, and if you were out and about now as an adult if you had to do something to the slice of pizza. You would call it school pizza. I I don't know if I really understand the question. Yeah. I can I can I was confusing on that. Okay. I if I'm out as an adult and I'm eating a slice of pizza, and I have to do something to that slice of pizza. I call it school pizza. What what the damn the grease off the top of it? That's it. That's it. You get a paper towel or napkin, and you dab the grease off the top. Then that's what I call school pizza because that's what we had to do in school. I can remember man. I thought I was big time back. This is twenty some odd years guys in my twenties. And I knew somebody who knew somebody who knew somebody. I don't remember how the whole lineage goes that was a teacher, and they could order they were in a small school district, and they could order food through ever was supplying the cafeteria they paid for it right in some like give me a case of school lunch pizza. And even cooked at home. It was the exact same way as it was when you're and that's the only time I think in my life. I had done that. So. Yeah. I believe me. I've got some interesting. Fond memories of that's great school lunches and stuff because until I got into high school. I mean, I always took my lunch. I don't I don't think I ever bought lunch ever. And then when I got into high school, and it became, you know, my duty you make your own lunch take school, and I got a couple of bucks because I think when I was in school lunch was a dollar ten. Yes. Thank you. Get lunch for dollar ten is what it was. And you and they still on the subject, and then they still had jungle juice member jungle, juice, the red juice. I don't think we had that. And then it Kirby we had you could buy fruit punch in the in star from cups. I don't know. I don't think that was good. I don't know what it was. But it was it was a dictator feels good. We of course, had milk chocolate milk. Call your vote, and then we had coke machines in the lunchroom, but they served high C drinks. Seeing the dirty trick Kirby. You couldn't you couldn't get coke back then. And then I don't know if you can now, but I knew back then you couldn't. Yeah. So what you would try to do is schedule it where class that would take you off campus around lunchtime. Yeah. So then you could go to McDonald's, and he could get a large coke and a Big Mac and fries. Not that. I know anyone who would do that. It was only five minutes from the high school most. I think the in Cairo is very very close. Yeah. I don't know. How we oh. We got off on that topic. When the world we went from Kirby rats to going off campus to get a coke. Yeah. But with with with school pizza mixed in there somewhere so with school pizza mixed in the did you watch the Golden Globes last night. Oh, no. I didn't. So I had no idea until I read the headline that there wasn't even one mention of Trump in it. And I'm like, wow Hollywood is falling down on the job. Could that be true? Could they went through the whole night? And I I read that at the Daily Mail this morning. Where was the headline? I'll find it here for you real quick. But apparently apparently Satan was thanked there, and they were not referring to Trump. Right, right. Maybe they felt that was all encompassing of, you know, just Trump and Republicans in general because that was Christian bale who did that? Since Globes upset for Gaga as a star is born loses out to bohemian rhapsody for best picture while Glenn Close pips her best to direct to tips. Pips her best direct actress at awards gala where Trump wasn't mentioned once and it's got once in capital letters. Yeah. Interesting that somebody named Christian would thank Satan. Now, he was playing Dick Cheney in the movie, I understand what I don't know in what context he did it. But I I don't even have to read the story. I can understand it. And you know, so they're still going to get in their political jabs here and there anyway, but. Look, I I don't know. I can't tell you. If I've ever watched a Golden Globes show. I used to always watch the Grammys years ago until music just kind of left me when I. I think I did like like a lot of folks do when they age music goes one direction, and you go another, and you know, I don't identify. I mean, it's it's so dominated today by hip hop and in those artists, and that's just look it's not anything bad. It's not me. I'm not their target audience. I think the last time I saw Golden Globes. As when Ricky Gervais said, hosted it. Okay. He's he he's pretty extreme. He's an acquired taste for a lot of people. I I think he's funny in doses. But it was very funny because Steve Carell had won an award and Ricky Jay races, the creator of the officer. And it was the year that that Steve Carell announced that he was leaving the show. So as he walks out, Ricky refuses to shake his hand. He's come back and make me some more money. On the show. But that was pretty funny. Oh, by the way, apparently Ellen speaks for the entire LGBTQ and has given the blessing for Kevin Hart to come back to the Oscar. She says dialogue is important. She had I guess a sit down with Kevin Hart. And I guess she did I guess she has now spoken and has deemed him worthy of of hosting the Oscars. It's funny though. And that's fine. I I don't know have you seen her was it game of games show that she's been advertised. I've never watched this funny. It's it's good show. She's great host. She's great comedian. I remember when she was back her first gig was when she hit it really big was on Carson. She did a bit on there and Carson loved her. And I think she's I think she's she's she's brilliant. And and you know, you know, fine. If if if she's helping Kevin Hart. Get out of trouble. I guess for something he did many many years ago. I guess I'm okay with it. I just think it's funny that that the may to hers the moral authority backlash on Twitter, though. She did. And just big backlash. I look I bet I have never watched more than fifteen seconds of of Ellen ever. And did that I can at least for member. But I did see about two minutes of the interview she did with Kevin Hart and Kevin Hart tries to explain himself. In like, you said she ordained him is, you know, it's all is forgiven and you can move on. And and that's fine. She didn't have to do that. She didn't have to. I do think some of the backlash. She got on Twitter because of it is unwarranted. But again, I just I don't at the end of the day. I don't care. I don't care if Kevin Hart host. I don't care if Ellen that. I just I don't care because I don't watch it. It's not me. It's not targeting me. It's not part of what I would consider mainstream America Hollywood has totally left. The the has has left a lot of folks behind in in many many ways, and I'm talking about the high brow. Like, these, you know last night. I went through some of the movies. I haven't seen him probably never will..
