Call in with Questions During the Show

——

Attorney Daryl Jones and I will rotate in asking questions during the show. The questions included below are designed to provide a guide but are not the only possible questions, nor may they be asked in the exact same order.

The first segment of our show will highlight the 2022 Selma Bridge Crossing Jubilee being held on March 3-6th to mark the anniversary of Bloody Sunday and the sacrifices of so many leading to passage of the Voting Rights Act of 1965. Our special guest is The Honorable Faya Rose Toure, first Black woman judge in Alabama and renowned activist, who has organized annually these outstanding gatherings to commemorate the anniversary of Bloody Sunday by rededicating thousands to continue the fight for voting rights. Among the many superb events planned for the Jubilee are the workshops to provide information and skills training to wage the current fight for voting rights. The Transformative Justice Coalition is sponsoring 3 workshops on March 4-5th. In light of the vicious voter suppression assault sweeping our nation, this year’s Selma events are of the highest importance.

We will continue our Selma focus for the Second segment of the show by focusing on the 5 day March from Selma to Montgomery, designed to recreate the historic march led by Dr. Martin Luther King and so many others. Joining us for this segment is Bishop Tavis Grant of the Rainbow PUSH Coalition who is intimately involved in the planning of the March.

For the Third Segment of the Show, we will be joined by the CEO of the League of Women Voters, Virginia Kase Solomon for a discussion of their upcoming National Day of Action on February 14th, their 102 anniversary, to promote voting rights.

During the Fourth Segment, Co-Hosts Barbara Arnwine and Daryl Jones will discuss the recent developments in the Hate Crimes case against the three murderers of Ahmaud Arbery. Jury selection is proceeding in this case. Barbara Arnwine will report directly from the grounds of the Federal Courthouse in Brunswick, Georgia. As you might recall, on January 31st, TJC Co-Leaders and Attorneys Barbara Arnwine and Daryl Jones worked with Wanda Cooper Jones, Marcus Arbery and Family to successfully have the Judge reject a proposed plea deal between the US DOJ and the defendant McMichaels for which they had not been consulted and the terms of which they adamantly opposed. That following Friday, Travis and Gregg McMichael withdrew their guilty pleas, as the settlement was no longer in effect, placing their fate in the decision of the jury to be selected for this case.

The Our distinguished and expert guests will provide special insights into the urgent work we all must engage to insure voting rights and justice for Ahmaud Arbery.


These are the issues we will cover during this show.

SHOW DESCRIPTION AND BACKGROUND

The topic of our show is “Good Trouble 2022: Bloody Sunday Commemoration, Selma to Montgomery March, League of Women Voters Day of Action and #JusticeForAhmaud update.”

On March 3-6, the annual Selma Bridge Crossing Jubilee will be held. This year’s events will highlight our strategic response to the vicious and brutal assault on the right to vote throughout the United States. Our guest Faya Rose Toure has brilliantly organized this commemorative and activist event for decades. Given the significance of the 2022 MidTerm Elections, there will be a reenactment of the full 5 day Selma to Montgomery March from March 7-11th. The Transformative Justice Coalition will sponsor 2 workshops on March 4 and 1 workshop on March 5th. In addition, TJC will join the Poor People’s Campaign and the Rainbow PUSH Coalition on March 7th for the first full day of the March to Montgomery. Bishop Tavis Grant, RPC National Field Director, will join the show to elucidate planning for the 5 day March.

On February 14th, on its 102nd anniversary, the League of Women Voter US will sponsor a National Day of Action to engage its entire membership in promoting the right to vote. We will be joined for a discussion of the highlights of this planned action by Virginia Solomon National CEO of the League of Women Voters US.

In addition, our show will provide and update on the 100% #JusticeForAhmaud Campaign by highlighting recent developments in the Hate Crimes case. Last Monday, January 31, 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 not been informed. 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.

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.
