I don't know which one he's leaning down because it doesn't make very much says one of This is the greatest nation on Earth. Founded on Judeo Christian principles. One of those principles is that we are all created in the image and likeness of God that that's that's in the constitution right it is and he's and he says this image is seen The most by our face I will not wear a mask k. uh-huh because he's covering the likeness of God.

Here's What To Do About Your Student Loans Due To Coronavirus
"There are so many people who have been just crushed by what corona virus has done to the economy. And you're sitting there with student loans. The big problem has been with private student loans because most federal loans are in a payment an interest holiday through September but private loans. There's no such protection and people have been just eaten up by what's going on with private loans because the lenders will destroy you. I mean they will eat you up. They are able to Ruin your credit. They're able to garnish. Your checking account or your wages very easily. And it's very difficult for you in a situation where you're flat out broke even file for bankruptcy although I have something about that for you in a minute. So a number of states have gotten together and organized temporary relief to student loan borrowers and private loans. And I'm expecting more states to join the Compact the States or California Collorado Connecticut Illinois Massachusetts New Jersey for Mont Virginia Washington. That is the current list that was put together by Forbes magazine and what they've done is the states have used their strength to then negotiate temporary protection for borrowers with all the major student. Loan Lenders somewhere around twenty of them that account for most private student loans in the United States. And what they are doing is you are not going to be reported to credit bureaus and those states if you contact your lender and tell them you can't pay your allowed to suspend your payments for three months. There will be no late fees. They will not report you as delinquent with the credit bureaus and they will not move forward with any debt collection lawsuit against you so remember. This is temporary only the state of Massachusetts has passed a statute to protect private student. Loan borrowers but this is an agreement that these states banding together have been able to reach with the overwhelming number of private student. Loan Lenders so what do you do? If you don't live in one of the states that have reached the this agreement with lenders. Call your find out who your legislators state senator or state representative and talk to him or her about the problems. You're facing with private student loans. Tell them about
Was Diddy right about forcing Joe Biden to have an agenda for Black people?
"You never really know who's going to shine during a pandemic during a crisis but A person in a voice that I think has really stepped up in a major way has been Naomi Campbell who has done some amazing interviews and And even just had some conversations herself about the pandemic about politics and Of course I mean she is a woman who's traveled and seeing the entire world but she's just been brilliant throughout the pandemic with just deep insights and thoughts and yesterday she had a conversation with diddy and apart of that conversation was about the presidential race and did he gave his thoughts on it. And I want to play that clip for you now. Black born is now going to be for free. We're going to have to see some promises. What are we in return for? I'll quote nothing has changed for Black America and in order for us to vote for biding. We can't be taken for granted like we always because we're supposed to be Democrats off because people are afraid and trump so I was going to take him out. Community level was to make a deal. This is business at this point. You know we can't truth follow. Titians you know so. We WanNa know very clearly just like trump made it clear that he wanted to build the wall vitamins to make clear that he's GonNa Change Lives in quality of life of black and Brown people else. He can't get the boat. I will hold a vote hostage. Ivine now. I saw and heard that clip earlier this morning when my friend. Sholom in God. He posted it and he posted a loan. Caption if you go to my instagram now or Charlemagne's Instagram I reposted Charlemagne's caption where you could just go to Charlemagne's page and check it out for yourself. I agree with everything they did. He said they're like I. I would say it even stronger. I think it's it's ridiculous to say otherwise but it's a bit of a roar test Which wish if the ink blood tests where you Somebody shows you ink blots and you tell them what you see I heard what did he said. It was like Yep. That's right we need to make sure that Joe Biden actually has an agenda for us and I I heard that and I'm like yeah of course. What other scenario are we saying that we don't care if Joe Biden has an agenda for us because what did he is saying is true? Black people almost exclusively put Joe Biden in the position. He's in right now and he doesn't come close to winning. The presidential election in November without the black vote and all saying is. Hey we need to let him know. Hey if you actually in real life want us to show up and vote for you like in a major way if you want us to put you over the top talk to US clearly about your agenda show us the policies show us the plans show us the strategies instead of just saying that you're going to be different than trump or that. You're better than trump. Can WE BE PRACTICAL. Can you talk to us about your economic policies? Can you talk to us about your justice policies? Can you talk to us about your healthcare community development policies? Can You? Can you speak on these things? And I see several of my friends including Kenny Burns who? I'm doing an interview with later this afternoon saying. Hey Hey that's reckless asked my brother Isaac as the third also posting. Hey everything they did. He said right. There was completely wrong and I was shocked because everything I heard in everything charlemagne heard and and I see many of you even on my instagram debating. It right now. I agree with every bit of it. It's outrageous I mean if it's a city council person if it's a local mayor if it's if it's a state representative if somebody for Congress we should always require of them that they have an agenda that as much as we can make it is binding that they have some type of binding commitment to our concerns and other people are saying no no no. No No. Don't say that. Don't say that you just need to vote for Joe Biden no matter what. And here's the thing. Black folks are gonNA show up and vote for Joe Biden Black Folk vote almost ninety five percent for the Democratic candidate and black folk will show up. But what we know in Michigan in Wisconsin in a place like Georgia Florida North Carolina and others. Is that if you actually want to win? Black folk have to go all out and we saw that in two thousand and eight and two thousand twelve of course with Barack Obama but black folk while black folks showed up to vote in huge numbers for Hillary Clinton in any place where the turn out was depressed even a little bit in in Milwaukee in Wisconsin or in Michigan. She lost. And it's okay for us to say to Democratic candidates to democratic nominees. And let's be real as I record this. It's still April. Were still in the primary. It's okay in April to say. Hey Joe Biden I wanna make sure you actually have an agenda for US okay. Like that's not an let's be real did he is not making threat. He is saying that we all deserve to have a presidential candidate. That has an agenda that actually represents our needs. Our concerns are our biggest issues and that they have to have a plan. And we wanna see it because what we've seen for most of our lives is presidential candidates who desperately rely on our vote but have no agenda for us have no plans for us. They plan on being generally nice. But we need something more than general nicety like we need people that have an actual policy agenda for the concerns and issues that we have and I'm grateful For diddy who didn't say. Hey I'm not voting for Joe Biden he just said Hey We're at the stage. In American history where the Democratic candidate needs to have a serious agenda for black folk and anybody who looks at this situation says otherwise is ridiculous and I see other people saying. Hey He's saying that from a place of privilege I don't I don't understand that. No He's saying it from a position of authority of somebody who generally doesn't go into making a deal with somebody unless the deal is good for everybody in what we want to understand is HBO. We're GONNA make this deal with you. Not only where you are the Democratic nominee but where we go all out to make sure you win the race. Exactly what are you going to do? And if that's a problem for you saying something like that then we need to have a big conversation like we need to go deeper if saying that much Riles you up. And gets you frustrated? Then you have probably been eating crumbs under the table for so long that you are used to people over promising and under delivering. You're used to not getting anything like the U. S. just the standard and so I see a lot of what I think are just outrageous. Criticisms of what he said I think people understandably so so badly want to defeat Donald trump that they are afraid to even ask Joe Biden for favor and is lying. No no we can do. Both we can defeat Donald Trump and in April still argue that they are some things. Joe Biden needs to do and do differently for him to garner our full support.

The Federal Reserve has taken massive steps to help markets
"Everybody it's the end of week three I think check me on that of the greater parts of this economy being shut down and as we saw in the unemployment claims numbers the damage is mounting even as political talk turns to re opening this economy so here for five maybe five and a half I don't know we'll see minutes of live radio to look back and examine our head along from The Washington Post also city Bready from politico a U. two thank I. K. heather let me start with you and the federal reserve chair Powell I guess yesterday with that big move on getting more money this money into this economy two point three trillion dollars he's done kidding around is the impression I get he has come out firing every busy okay he's got really quickly and the stock market loves that people keep asking why did the stock market rally ten percent this week you know we have seventeen million people out of work and a big part of that is the federal reserve is she keeps putting out massive amounts of money it's a backstop pretty much every part of the market what's new this week is for the first time ever the fed announced it is actually going to make direct loans to companies and two states and municipalities so that's never happened before and it tells you how cash strapped and desperate cast somebody parts the economy are all right so we're gonna get to the disconnect between the markets in the real economy which I'll talk about a lot and in his address in his remarks yesterday was the real economy but seemed to city talk to me for a second but the Congress of the United States representatives of the people and where they are in this whole crisis they are mostly playing along this is kind of remarkable to see we've we a decade ago and since then I've had some pretty brutal discussions about the philosophy of government intervening in the economy and today most of the discussion there about tactics about how do you have the government intervening in the economy not whether the government should intervene and so you have Republican lawmakers who are trying to one up each other hi in in coming up with ways to inject more money into the economy senator I Josh Hawley from Missouri is is proposing that we just have the government Hey everybody just like or money in and pay everyone don't even worry about trying to route it through businesses which actually it is probably a cleaner way to do it just have the government do a total takeover of the economy for X. number of months the big problem is nobody knows what that access right good point and this is the only thing was really really interesting but heather I do wonder whether Congress appreciates the velocity with which things are happening well they're certainly trying to make things happen but it's it's just not fast enough you when you have this many people seventeen million unemployed who are trying to get these unemployment benefits a lot of people I talk to you you know they've called a hundred times a day to try to get through to an offense to get this this aid in this release and two or three weeks later they still haven't gotten their first check same thing with small businesses I talked to a small business owner this week from Michigan and he called the US small business administration to check up on worse as loans and he was color number sixteen thousand something and that phone and so I I think you know the government and a government terms they're acting at warp speed at light speed if you well but for the real economy we hadn't never seen a deterioration this quick in like less than a month and it says the money is not getting out fast enough city but as I said political talk is starting to turn to has turned to actually now for a week or two with the idea of re opening this government do you think it's possible to get things going again in stages as summer talking about yeah it is possible for for us to do what is called re opening the economy but what that actually means is going to be really different in reality than just saying that it's happening it's going to obviously happens slowly and deliberately most of Montana and Wyoming are gonna come back a lot faster than most of New York and California but like what does it look like when you have restaurants being ordered that they have to have every other table empty maybe every every every S. front we'll have half of their seats a third of their seeds and that they can actually sell that's going to continue throughout the summer and maybe into the fall and so when we when we we talk about re opening the economy there's a false sense that maybe it's like flipping a switch and it's not it's like slowly releasing the valves and letting people come back in with masks on wearing gloves like you've never seen before and it will look like a very different system and it's not going to inspire confidence and most people to to have that slow process but it's certainly better than where we are right now with everything shut down obsolete shear bolt up at next week's the other stories to be done about definitions of terms and what that means heather along really quickly and by really quickly I mean like thirty seconds the markets are looking at the economy and saying I don't really care the feds give me is two trillion dollars there's a disconnect here between Wall Street in the real economy right there it definitely is right now the other thing is the market's looking about six months out and it's starting to see some weird glimmer of hope in that idea of the zombie economy that so we were just talking about that what if it partially reopens will be still be some money flowing again but of course if you're a small business owner who made you might have fifty percent of tables filled in the respite restaurant empty that's no consolation
Unemployed still waiting for checks as states struggle to pay out stimulus funds
"The end of week three. I think check me on that of the greater parts of this economy being shut down as we saw the unemployment claims numbers. The damage is mounting. Even as political talk turns to reopening this economy so here for five maybe five and a half. I don't know we'll see minutes of live radio to look back and examine our headlong from the Washington Post also debris from politico. Hayatou kyw heather. Let me start with you And the Federal Reserve Chair Powell. I guess yesterday with that Big Move On getting more money this money into this economy two point three trillion dollars He is done kidding around the oppression I get. He has come out firing every bazooka. He's got really quickly and the stock market loves it. People keep asking. Why did the stock market rally ten percent this week? Even we have seventeen million people out of work and a big part of that is the Federal Reserve is keeps putting out massive amounts of money to backstop pretty much every part of of the market. What's new this week is for the first time. Ever the Fed announced it is actually going to make direct loans to companies and two states and municipalities. So that's never happened before and it tells you how cash-strapped and desperate for cash so many parts of the economy are all right so we're GONNA get to the disconnect between the markets and the real economy which pal talks about a lot in in his address in his remarks. Yesterday was the real economy but seeped. Sudip talked to me for a second about the congress of the United States representatives of the people and where they are in this whole crisis are mostly playing along. This is kind of Remarkable to see we've we a decade ago and since then I've had some pretty brutal discussions about the philosophy of government intervening in the economy and today most of the discussions are about tactics. There about how do you have the government intervening the economy? Not whether the government should intervene. And so you have Republican lawmakers who are trying to one up each other In in coming up with ways to inject more money into the economy Senator Josh Holly. From Missouri is is proposing that we just have the government pay. Everybody just like pour money in and pay everyone. Don't even worry about trying to route it through businesses which actually is probably a cleaner way to do it just have the government do total takeover of the economy for X. number of months the big problem is nobody knows what that excess right good point and it's the only thing was really really interesting but heather. I do wonder whether Congress appreciates the velocity with which Things are happening while they're certainly trying to make things happen. But it's it's just not fast enough when you have this. Many PEOPLE SEVENTEEN MILLION UNEMPLOYED. Who are trying to get these unemployment benefits A lot of people I talk to you know. They've called a hundred times a day to try to get through to an office to get this this aid in this relief and two or three weeks later they still haven't gotten their first check Same thing was small businesses. I talked to a small business center this week from Michigan and he called the small business administration to check up on where his lone and he was caller number. Sixteen thousand something and then have a phone and so I think the government and government terms that are acting at warp speed at light speed if he will but for the real economy we have never seen a deterioration this quick and like less than a month and it just the money is not getting out fast enough so deep as I said political talk is starting to turn to turn to actually now for a week or two. The idea of reopening this government Do you think it's possible to get things going again? in stages as summer talking about. Yeah it is possible for for us to do what is called reopening the economy but what that actually means is going to be really different reality than just seeing that it's happening is going to obviously happens slowly and deliberately most of Montana and Wyoming GonNa come back a lot faster than most of New York and California. But what does it look like when you have restaurants being ordered that they have to have every other table empty? Maybe every everyday every restaurant will have half of their seats. A third of their seats They can actually fill. That's going to continue throughout the summer. And maybe into the fall and so when we when we We talk about reopening the economy. There's a false sense that maybe it's like flipping switch and it's not. It's like slowly releasing a valve and letting people come back in With masks on wearing gloves like you've never seen before and it will look like a very different system and it's not going to inspire confidence in most people To to have that slow process. But it's certainly better than where we are right now with everything shut down for the foreseeable next week's stores to be done about definitions of terms and what that means Heather long really quickly and by really quickly. I mean like thirty seconds The markets are looking at the economy. And saying I don't really care. The feds give me is two trillion dollars. There's a disconnect here between Wall Street and the Real Economy Right. There definitely is right now. The other thing is the markets looking about six months out.

"On Beacon Hill legislation has been filed mandating that all of the state's long term care facilities make daily reports to the department of public health about positive covert nineteen cases as well as deaths WBZ's Laurie Kirby spoke with state representative Ruth Balser of Newton the legislation is simple it simply requires that all elder housing meaning skilled nursing facilities at all elder housing assisted living need to report daily to either their local board of health for the state department of public health the number of known covert nineteen positive cases and any mortalities in the facility isn't that happening now well I think it is happening to a large extent but it may not be consistent it's not the requirement is a national guidance that advises well in the case of nursing homes and not actually as broad a definition of senior housing is my bill but it's really an advisory of voluntary I have no reason to think most aren't doing that but we certainly saw the tragedy unfold in Holyoke when the numbers are not being reported and we just want to make sure to avoid you know that kind of tragedy and make sure that the reporting is done consistently on the state's website they've been providing numbers the mass DPH on long term care facilities in the Commonwealth to date there are twelve hundred and thirty six cases one hundred and forty facilities with at least one case of cove in nineteen what I think you're getting to here is there's no spaces this is the city of fatalities is that the idea it does not at that there's not a specific and we can't tell for sure whether we're getting all the reports I mean isn't this is another problem which is not everyone is being tested and that is insufficient amount of tests available but yes we want to make sure that DPH department of public health is informed we want to make sure the legislature is informed this bill requires that the department of public health then report weekly to the legislature numbers as well it has been staggering Chelmsford multiple residents testing positive Wilmington today I did a story where a seventy seven out of ninety one of their residents have tested positive seven have died of it what else is being done to protect our seniors living in these facilities in Massachusetts well it's terribly concerning I mean as you know and if your audience knows this is a virus that particularly targeting elders especially elders with underlying health conditions and so the residents of these facilities are really vulnerable the facilities have been crying out for help there is insufficient a personal protective equipment and sucked in many of the facilities there is insufficient testing you know hopefully the bill in making sure that all the numbers are transparent my hope is of course that will lead to the necessary resources spelling to these facilities is you have a loved one in a as a nursing home or assisted living facility in Massachusetts right now would you pull them out okay I don't know not sure many different from anyone in your audience on that each person would have to make a personal decision whether I mean some of these folks you know they're in nursing homes because they need that level of skilled care that you know maybe a family member wouldn't be able to provide but I notice in the case of some of the more independent senior housing and assisted living certainly some family members were in the position to do that or just making that choice but that's a very personal choice and those that have been exposed which we've seen a hundred and forty facilities with at least one case of cove it now they would have to self quarantine anyway yes for sure it means the other problem that's going on in the nursing homes that they are crying out for help within the assisted living facilities is the insufficient number of staff they've had you know staffing problems before this and now with individuals testing positive and so then they are out on sick leave or people who are concerned with the lack of personal protective equipment are leaving and so there is a problem actually some of the assisted livings have called on the state and I believe the secretary is helping with this to get some support from the National Guard to help staff people in a safe

"Who can help get the seventeen thousand children out of our foster care system today what we want for Georgians and people across the world to know about religious liberty religious freedom which we believe to be religious restriction. Is that if you are able to come to the table on this conversation and say hey love thy neighbor do not judge then we need you right now right. So what can we do? Because obviously I am someone who is beyond passionate about things like this because I have seen firsthand what that had what happens to our children when those types of restrictions happen what happens to the families who oftentimes are more equipped to work with kids. Who are little come from a dysfunctional background. Because the one thing I've had to tell many people who ask me about adoption and foster care might be ready. These kids are not healthy right. You're not getting an any from the movies. Also love you ain't just but the thing is it's not obvious. These are very troubled. Youth oftentimes and we know that after h five. They're less likely to be adopted. Actually h three Let's be real honest. Isn't that any child? That old has gone through some sort of trauma and often times. I see people of the Lgbtq community understand that and are more equipped to handle or at least are more prepared to handle such trauma so would that what can we do to continue to make sure our voices are now beyond just the regular emails we are. What can we do yes? Three things? One is registered to vote. Y'All the deadlines are always happening. You know people like who wins the deadline so I can do it the night before or the voter registration deadlines are always happening. Don't worry about whether or not you're trying to get in for this election or that election. We believe voting to be a practice right registered to vote. So you can see. Oh my polling places green today Oh it was. Actually purple voted last time. I mean literally just a practice of knowing your space when you're going to make these decisions because these are the senators that you're voting for if they have an incumbent letter by their name. Please look them up before you go. You can see your sample ballot online across the state of Georgia by just going to the secretary of state's webpage. The second thing is no that politicians are playing games with people's lives right now. And they deserve to be held accountable. Social media is a great way to do that to make people understand that your beliefs are equally as important to your elected officials beliefs. Even if they have the power to go in and to write a piece of legislation you need to remind them that that is only a fraction of their jobs right. The main part of our job at the state capital is to balance the state budget. If your elected official to not talk to you about the money that they're trying to get into the state budget for their hospitals and their schools and all they can do is talk to you about restricting people's ability to live in safe and healthy communities. Please quickly redirect them help them understand that ours. State of Georgia has the Department of Family and child services and their budget line is possibly about to get cut again. If they really care about making sure that people have healthy lives they should be doing a better job of balancing that budget. Line the third thing that I truly truly believe that we can all do is to talk to children When you're talking to children help them understand what it is that you have experienced regardless of their age? Help them understand why something makes you upset. Help them know that they can speak up if they feel like something is happening. Our children these days are at age three thinking about gender identity and if we would have adults who would just listen and talk to the And not push religion down their throat at that moment with conversion therapy then they might actually be okay. I am excited in the opportunity. You know to keep registering people to vote to keep talking about the state budget and of course to keep talking to children to stop religious restrictions from happening. Right that's awesome. We do have some more of our.

"Put My car sweat shirt on and went down to the State Capitol and tried to get to know my legislator. I figured I was going to run into a white man. Yeah instead I ran into an African American lesbian with locked hair and we really became friends. I'm so proud to know that. She found me to be such a pivotal member of her district that when she decided to resign her office in two Thousand Fifteen. She called me and personally asked me to run for the seat now. I was twenty three years old. I just got out of college. I didn't think I was going to run for office. Maybe after law school after a career. So we dropped everything and picked up a grassroots campaign. We had a month and a half to raise fifty thousand dollars and to try to talk to twenty two thousand voters in the first election. We had in two thousand sixteen was in January so our legislative session which I was running to be a part of had already started so. We felt the urgency and tried to get as many voters to the polls. We actually had our celebration party planned for here in Pont City market at nine pm because the polls closed at eight well. We left our house at like eight twenty. Gotten this parking lot by like eight thirty. Can we saw the results? We had lost the election by twenty three votes out of twenty two thousand people. If twenty three more people had voted we would have closed the deal so we had a runoff election February. I immediately started serving. The presidential primary was in March so we were back on the ballot in March and once again on the ballot in November. So if anyone out there interested in running for office and someone tells you you're GonNa have to do it multiple times. That's just a part of the game and that's how we got our seat. Both amazing yeah and as you were talking about to the audience and to the people. What would your statements be about why it is important that if you are as passionate and as as we are all passionate to come out and represent and be a voice and especially for those who are women of color people colored those in the LGBTQ. I Y it's really important right now that that community step up cultural change is happening in our communities. And it's also happening in government buildings if you look at the Georgia State Capitol Right now. We just put in a mom of which is for you if you are pumping or breastfeeding. We've never had that before. And this is because legislators who are female who had tiny's needed to be and they started breastfeeding on the floor of the state capital and they started to say we're doing this because people can't come here and do what they need to do if they want to be a citizen advocate. They have to choose whether they're going to feed their child or not and so they're opportunities for our state capital. I believe to have gender neutral bathrooms. Currently we don't and I believe that only if there are more people with intersectional identities who are not just say queer like me but maybe our moms of Queer kids or maybe dad's of trans kids. Then that is when we'll see. The tide turned Brian. That's a great point. Love that so in your time with the government. Yes we've been looking at. I've been looking at some of your bills and some of the things that you have been pushing and I did want to talk about because I love it and I need to know more about it. The bill of rights. Thank you yeah I wanNA know all about it how you came to come together and decided this needs to be talked about at the very least as a way of protesting. That's right so the abortion ban in twenty nineteen was really just another day of business as usual at Georgia State Capitol Some of my colleagues who identify as Caucasian and male were up to what I consider to be business as usual try restricting people's rights not listening to their constituents and in fact doing something that is incredibly costly to our state. They decided that in that day even though we had done five or ten direct actions on the state floor by turning our backs to the speakers linking arms bringing media in shouting out planned parenthood. Not leaving the well when we were supposed to in continuing to speak but they were still able to get the bill passed so we said as much as you have the power to go legislative council and to what you say is to write legislation that your constituents want you to right. We do too so a few of US black women. Legislators went to Legislative Council and under the understanding that our constituents had reached out to us about men's health we wanted to write some bills so we did the testicular bill of rights. We additionally did the vanishing Viagra Act. We also tried to create a study committee on erectile dysfunction and we talked a lot about the social and mental aspects of masculinity that are toxic and in fact those are the reasons why we have unplanned pregnancy right Unfortunately our bill has not gotten a hearing but it has gotten media from here across the world. We are open to talking about it anytime. I love it. Yeah as I was reading it. I think I was giggling but I was really excited because this is absolutely the questions that we need to come back to. Whether it's actually talking about sexual assault or get unwanted pregnancies any of that these important questions that should be addressed. Why aren't meant taking responsibility for all of these actions that are happening? Why is being just dumped on to Women those identifies women or those who have vaginas general. Why is that so heavily? Pay For pay in his health benefit plan for Viagra tier one right you know. Get that pay for for active members as well as retirees additionally you know when we look at what happens when someone is trying to get a DNA test to prove paternity. Does the state pay for that? No so just trying to pull out some of the fallacies and contradictions of the Georgia code. I love it and then as I was reading through your stuff you also do a lot of work with homelessness and Housing and displacement. Can you talk a little bit more about that? Because I know it's always been a crisis but it's becoming more more of an awareness especially with our current administration not really caring about the underlying issues that echoes your nominal bases economic. Thank you yes. This is my job. Yes Oh can you talk a little more about that? Please certainly in thinking about housing. Insecurity is not just someone who is sleeping on the street. Sometimes it is Mama's who are paying for one week in a hotel so her kids can stay in the area so they can go to school and no one in the school will know what they're going through. We been hearing from families across the state of Georgia rural suburban urban. You name it who are facing housing insecurity. Most people are able to talk about that issue when they see it Maybe they see it when they're getting off the highway and someone is asking for help. Or maybe they see it when they're at a grocery store. And someone is expressively hungry. But what we don't really talk about is the mental health aspects of that in the physical health aspects of that so we have tried to coalesce with some of the organizations that meet people where they are. These are organizations like community land trusts the whole point of community land. Trust is to get some land and to hold it in a trust so that no matter what that house on that land will remain affordable community land trust right now in the state of Georgia are so notable because Georgia is the first state to ever have a community land trust beating out. Vermont. New York -ELVAR NYA years and years ago but we have not done anything to actually protect. Those community land trusts in staying affordable. So this past year we worked with the city of Atlanta's housing department and government relations as well as the community land trust here in Atlanta. To say what are your families experiencing and they said this. They don't own the land. They own the house so when property tax time comes around the community land trust is paying for the land and they're paying for the house but that homeowner cannot request an exemption from school taxes from municipal taxes. If they're old enough because they don't technically owned the land so there are some administrative fixes just like that that the governor did and signed and was fine but there are other issues like mental health protecting veterans Making sure that Trans and gender non conforming youth who are sleeping under the bridge blocks from here because we visit them actually have a way to get back on their feet and sometimes that can be through a foster care system other times. I can be through a supportive family. We're trying to make some pathways for folks to get out of housing insecurity. Beth awesome. I was reading. That was really really inspiring. Just understanding how harmful gentrification can be but how inevitable it often is. Unfortunately there's no real solution and seeing things like that talking about different types of bills how the government can assist or should be a part of this conversation instead of it just being based on income or based on individuals and it seems like it's hard for us but slowly at least being conversational. Yeah we're getting there and I'll say one of the most exciting moments I had working across. The aisle last year was with a rural legislator. Who told me about when he was growing up? He used to have bunnies at his house all the time. And He loved his bunnies until he found out they were rats and in that understanding he would support my bill making sure that people had safe housing. We were able to pass a bill. That is a part of kind of tenants bill of rights to say if you report your buddies or rats to your landlord they cannot just go ahead and evict you. Which is what's happening in the state of Georgia if you report mold or mildew or any of the things that are environmental or health and safety issues they can actually terminate your rental contract. If I knew that no I didn't I didn't wow so. We changed that bill last year. That's awesome. I knew that there was some changes happening with. The winners writes things. I did not know included the fact that we could have been kicked out and I'm renters. What what wow. I'm learning things today. All how Georgia okay. But we fixed that exit. That's amazing And then also we kinda wanted to come back around. You were talking about foster hair and such something. That's very passionate to me I am. I used to social work. Thank you weird statement saying I am not as of last week. That's very new. But I was working with the Department of Justice I worked with foster care. I'm also adopted and I know once again the whole idea of religious freedom. Bill is coming back round. I know that a legislators trying to reintroduce it again and then of course I am more than horrified because there are things happening around the country that is allowing actual like this to go forward Can you kind of talk about what that 'cause I know you've been in there while they were trying to fight this bill to begin with as we're coming back to this? What are some things that we need to be paying attention to? How do? We vocally advocate and physically advocate to fight against such a bill. When you hear the term religious freedom you should think religious restriction right. And we're trying to make sure that people understand whether you believe in someone or something that gets you somewhere that's fine. We're not trying to stop people from believing or not believing what we want to make sure that we do is create the separation of church and state now in a state like Georgia in the Bible Belt. That's really difficult for reasons like you have pastors running for office. You also have governmental policies that create a special space in the state capital for prayer to always happen. So we're juxtaposing people who believe strongly and people who understand what the public wants what the public wants today is for there to be the separation of church and state you can look at even a place that idol eat chick fillet open on Sundays because they understand for their beliefs that that is what they need to do on Sundays. Great do that on Sundays. Maybe Jehovah's Witness do it on Saturday. Do whatever day you need to except for when you are restricting someone else's life right and in issues related to not only baking a cake for a wedding even though that Supreme Court case really was disappointing to us all But also about adopting people. We saw this week as well. The Senate dropped the Anti lgbtq adoption bill in our words. We know that research shows that same sex couples are four times more likely than opposite sex couples to be raising adopted children. So you're already targeting the group of folks.
