logoI was on the Keep Hope Alive Radio Show with Rev. Jackson this morning discussing Supreme Courts decision on Voting Rights.  Below is a repost of Santita Jackson‘s facebook post.  Santita Jackson is the producer of the Radio Show.

We are in the midst of the 42nd Annual Rainbow/PUSH International Conference. Some will ask if we need to still organize and march…Because we are living in the best and worst of times—

While we have made historic strides culminating in the election and re-election of an African American President, we are now facing an equally historic blowback, which threatens to undo the gains that have taken us decades to set in place:
46.2 million in poverty—numbers not seen in …50 years, since the beginning of the “War on Poverty”…

Student Loan debt topping $1 trillion… Rising barriers to even acquiring a student loans—with poor credit preventing student loans… SCOTUS decisions on the Voting Rights Act—gutting it—and Affirmative Action—placing it under review…

Now, more than ever, we must organize and fight back against this backlash—and so we are meeting and organizing during this week’s Rainbow/PUSH International Conference…

Yesterday, we got things started with a legal panel that included: Congressman John Conyers; Professor Michelle Alexander/”THE NEW JIM CROW”; Atty. Barbara Arnwine/LAWYERS’ COMMITTEE for CIVIL RIGHTS UNDER LAW; Atty. John Brittain and many others…
Today, starting at 1p at the Rainbow/PUSH Headquarters, we will have the “National Urban Agenda/Stop the Violence” Town Hall Meeting—while tonight we will be hosted by the FAMILY CHRISTIAN CENTER in Munster, IN for the production of “LET FREEDOM RING”…

Tomorrow is the INTERNATIONAL, WOMEN and EDUCATION Communities will be the focus—highlighted by WOMEN’S INTERNATIONAL LUNCHEON, the PUSH/EXCEL SCHOLARSHIP Gala as well as the DOING BUSINESS with AFRICA PLENARY…
Tuesday, we will focus on the worlds of FAITH, LABOR and SPORTS: Labor Breakfast, Hip Hop Summit, Ministers’ Luncheon, Fairness in Sports Roundtable and the ATHLETIC BANQUET: “Life Beyond the Playing Field” and, on Wednesday we will explore ACCESS to HEALTH, BUSINESS OPPORTUNITIES and CAPITAL: BUSINESS LUNCHEON, COMCAST WORKSHOP, SMALL BUSINESS INSTITUTE HEALTH SCREENING, EDUCATION and PREVENTIVE CARE THE WISE BLACK CONSUMER: Making Our Money Count in America…and more…

Now, more than ever, we must organize and fight back against this backlash—and so we are meeting and organizing during this week’s Rainbow/PUSH International Conference…  We will never surrender! (Rainbow/PUSH National Conference—July 6-10, 2013)
