Human Rights Campaign Equality Votes PAC Launches Final Mobilization Campaign to Educate and Mobilize Equality Voters

The ads target hundreds of thousands of “Equality Voters” in key districts where their turnout is critical to the outcome of the Presidential contest statewide. Partnering with the data and analytics firm Catalist to create an “Equality Voter Model,” the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) built on decades of voter and polling data to assess the degree to which a person is likely to support pro-LGBTQ policies — from marriage equality and adoption by LGBTQ parents, to laws that would prohibit discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity.

Supporters in any state can go to hrc.org/vote to register to vote, verify their voter registration, find out about early in-person or mail voting options and receive election reminders. For more information on how to get involved, sign up to volunteer, or join an advocacy training, visit HRC’s Equality Voter Action Center.

Freda Prempeh, the Member of Parliament (MP) for the Tano North constituency, has urged parents to give their girl children the best of education for a secured future.

She said educating the girl children would help to control teenage pregnancy and domestic violence in the communities.

Mrs Prempeh, also the Deputy Minister for Gender, Children and Social Protection, was speaking at a day’s meeting with queens to mark the International Day of the Girl-Child at Duayaw-Nkwanta in the Tano North Municipality of the Ahafo Region.

The meeting aimed at deliberating on the challenges of the youth, particularly the girl children and how to overcome such challenges to help them to become responsible future citizens and leaders.

Under the theme ”My Voice, Our Equal Future,” the event was organised by the

A Portland Filmmaker is Highlighting One Black Horror Film a Day in October to Educate and Fundraise

Jeff Oliver has far more than 31 reasons to launch a monthlong Instagram project on Black horror films.

The Portland filmmaker is a lifelong devotee of the genre and last fall began writing a horror script inspired by the gentrification of North Portland. Oliver is also the production manager for Open Signal Labs, an incubator program seeking to empower and invest in local Black media makers.

But the new Janelle Monáe-starring film Antebellum was the “nail in the coffin” of Oliver’s decision to spotlight one Black horror film each day of October. In Oliver’s view, Antebellum depicted little but meaningless, retrograde brutality in the wake of a winding, multidimensional history of Black horror cresting in recent years with Get Out.

“It was as if they were trying to tell people slavery had been bad for the first time,” Oliver says of Antebellum. “We’re so far past this, in

Former Wolverine Peterson Creates Votable App to Educate Next Generation

// Sarah VanMetre

ANN ARBOR, Mich.Veronica Peterson, or Roni Hicks as she was known while wearing No. 3 on the basketball court from 2008-11, realized something as she geared up for the 2020 election: she had never done any research on the candidates or what nuanced information was on the ballot. Sure, she had voted before, but that was more of just checking the box to say that she did it.

Instead of just doing some research for herself, she decided to build an app named Votable. She put her education — an industrial operations engineering degree from the University of Michigan and master’s degree in computer science from the University of Chicago — and her work experience as a software engineer at Morningstar to the test. She built the app by herself, working

HUNTINGTON — The home where she once lived will soon become a resource others can use to learn about the life and legacy of former Huntington resident Memphis Tennessee Garrison.

Swing Low Sweet Chariot: England rugby bosses won’t ban slave-era song; will educate fans on its history

The “Swing Low, Sweet Chariot” song is one of the most recognized African-American spirituals, rooted in the horrors of US slavery and the oppression of race.

In the aftermath of George Floyd’s death, the RFU said in June it was reviewing the song’s use at games, saying many fans might not be aware of its “historical context.”
In a statement released on Thursday, the organization, which oversees English rugby, said it intends to educate fans “on the history and provenance of the song as well as providing platforms for diverse voices across the game.”

“The RFU needs to step up its efforts to improve diversity and inclusion across our game,” RFU Chair Andy Cosslett said. “We are living through testing times, but this will not deter us from grasping the opportunity to better reflect the society we live in.
