The Igniting Change Radio Show on Tuesday, August 1st, 2023, from 12:00 PM – 1:00 PM Eastern Time, entitled, “Supreme Disappointment: An Overview of the 2022-2023 Nefarious SCOTUS Term”, will be broadcasting live from the National Bar Association’s (NBA) 98th Annual Convention in Minneapolis with Radio Show Co-Hosts and Transformative Justice Coalition (TJC) Co-Leaders Attorneys Barbara Arnwine, Esq. and Daryl Jones, Esq. and guests James Gilmore, Esq. and Mary “Mazzi’ Ingram.

On Tuesday, August 1st, the Civil Rights section of the NBA is sponsoring its annual John C. Brittain Supreme Court Review which will be moderated by Igniting Change guest John Gilmore with panelists Barbara Arnwine, Esq. and Daryl Jones, Esq. This panel will 1 over 6 major cases decided by the Court, including Alan vs. Milligan, Moore v. Harper, Students For Fair Admissions vs. President and Fellow of Harvard College/SFSA vs. University of North Carolina, Biden vs Nebrasksa, 303 Creative, LLC vs. Elenis, and Groff vs DeJoy. This radio show will reprise the panel discussion with highlights of the questions and reactions from the audience. These cases have caused considerable reaction in the public sphere. In particular, the Milligan case is prominently being discussed in the news right now because of the Alabama State Legislature’s refusal to comply with the Supreme Court’s directive to create a second minority-majority Congressional district. The panel will discuss the implications of this refusal and open defiance and likely next steps. Likewise, the Affirmative Action case has resulted in mass confusion as to its reach and impact on any race-conscious policies and actions beyond college admissions. A number of GOP Attorney Generals and other State Officials have sought to dismantle minority scholarships,  affirmative action in employment, and other policies that weren’t discussed at all in the Court’s decision. Last week, UNC announced that it was abandoning all affirmative action in admissions, including any essay submissions, and employment. The implications of the Elenis case in particular has been widely discussed in its likely impact in other civil rights areas in addition to LGBTQIA. The panel will also discuss the impact the Supreme Court’s scandals are having on the Court and the public’s confidence in the Court?

Following the issuance of the Affirmative Action decision, a number of TJC Fellows formed an action group to discuss the case and form their own statement. Our guest, Mary “Mazzi’ Ingram, is currently a student at a primarily White institution and can speak to how the affirmative action decision is affecting her campus.

TJC Weekly Announcement:

This show will discuss Black farmers and the Black farmers fund, from the Discrimination Financial Assistance Program which is being funded by the Inflation Reduction Act. The Inflation Reduction Act contains an assistance fund for farmers who were discriminated against. This fund has $2.2b to cover 75 million applicants and covers anyone who can provide proof that they were discriminated against by the federal government. You can only apply up to October through the 40 page application which started on July 7th. How do we best outreach to all of these farmers, particularly, Black farmers who are eligible?
