The topic of our show is “Fighting on Multiple Fronts for Justice: The Prince George’s Commission for Women, 100% Demand for #JusticeForAhmaud in Hate Crimes Case and Black Women & The Supreme Court.”
On Sunday, February 6th, the Prince George’s Commission for Women will announce their 2022 Agenda. Chair of the Commission Dr. Denise C. McCain will join our show to preview this Agenda seeking equity for women and the prevention of violence against women.
One Monday, TJC Co-Leaders Barbara R. Arnwine and Daryl D. Jones, worked with the Arbery Family who had been shocked by the US DOJ plea agreements with Travis and Greg McMichaels the murderers of their beloved Ahmaud Arbery. Sadly, misrepresentations had been made to the DOJ that the family was in agreement with this deal when in fact the family had no idea. Wanda Cooper Jones, Marcus Arbery & Aunts Diane Arbery Jackson and Ruby Preston Arbery determinedly insisted on speaking in opposition to the plea agreement as it would have held under seal all of the Hate Crime evidence of their racial slurs, epithets and threats to harm Black people prior to the senseless murder of Ahmaud Arbery for jogging in their “White neighborhood and it would have let them spend the first 30 years of their sentence in the preferred federal prison setting. Judge Lisa Godbley Wood rejected the plea deal.
Last week, President Biden renewed his pledge to nominate a Black Woman to the Supreme Court upon accepting the resignation of Justice Stephen Breyer. Our show will discuss the many ramifications of this pledge and the already heated search for a Black women nominee. Renowned thought leader Dr. Julianne Malveaux will join us for this discussion.
And we will briefly update our audience about the fight for voter justice and the Transformative Justice Coalition’s planned activities during the upcoming Selma Bridge Crossing and March to Montgomery, March 3-6 and March 7-11th.
We will continue to examine the 2021-2022 onslaught of voter suppression by state legislatures resulting in 34 disenfranchising laws passed in 19 states and a slew of gerrymandering in several key states, many states are poised to pass more voter suppression laws in these first 2 months of 2022. It is more urgent than ever that the federal government protect voters of color and vulnerable voters against these wrongful measures by state legislatures. The US DOJ is suing Texas and Georgia for violating voting rights but this national wave of voter suppression is too large to be addressed by litigation or organizing alone. Indeed, in the last months of 2021, disturbing articles recounted the purging of Black election officials from boards of election in Georgia. In Michigan, there is a concentrated assault to restrict voting rights. In North Carolina and other states there are major controversies over the extreme partisan gerrymandering. These and other negative voter suppression developments underscore the urgent need for the US Senate to pass the Freedom to Vote Act and the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act to mandate federal standards to protect the rights to vote and impose review of voting and electoral legislation, practices and procedures proposed by states and jurisdictions with histories of voter discrimination. And the DC Statehood Admissions bill passed by the U.S. House has also been pending in the Senate for months.
Our show is designed to educate our audience on recent developments in this fight for our Democracy, women’s rights, #JusticeForAhmaud and a representative Supreme Court of the United States, and to share opportunities for engagement.
