Reach Out, to your new Senators and tell them what you want…

Hello Bosses,

I know you all probably have this contact information but I wanted to be sure of it. You should also know that the Republicans are meeting and discussing who to pick off next and certainly creating more opportunities to subvert our vote. Senator Warnock stated” I’m proud that the very first bill I am cosponsoring in the U.S. Senate is the For the People Act, a pro-democracy reform bill that strengthens the Voting Rights Act and ensures every eligible voter can participate in our democracy. The For the People Act includes provisions to increase election security funding and expand vote-by-mail. It will stop bad actors from arbitrarily purging voter rolls, and help get dark money out of politics. This act will strengthen our democracy – plain and simple.”

During the 1870s, more than a dozen African American men, many of whom had been born into slavery, were elected to the U.S. Congress. It was a period that ended all too quickly.

And these men were Republicans, this is some interesting history. I would love to know your thoughts on these representatives and how America continues to make the same mistakes and it’s all about race.

Civics Education is a right but the United States chose not to provide a curriculum to schools with predominantly black students.

Voters suppression has been a practice of steady and constant knee on the necks of people of color and Civic Education is the #1 Voter Suppression tactic of all time. Here is a good read, The State of Civics Education by Sarah Shapiro and Catherine Brown, https://www.americanprogress.org/issues/education-k-12/reports/2018/02/21/446857/state-civics-education/. Shapiro and Brown state “some schools only require one course in Civics while some schools offer a wide curricula of Civics.” Few states provide service-learning opportunities or engage students in relevant project-based learning. In addition, few students are sufficiently prepared to pass the AP U.S. government exam.

I am not a big Rap fan but I understood everything DJ Yellow, said….

Voting is a Rites of Passage 18 year olds should look forward to, but if you are not taught, typically you do not vote. We The People can correct this wrong b demanding higher standards and a more vigorous Civics Education curriculum in all schools not just some. https://twitter.com/SherylB53564074.

Civics Education is a Right and vigorous instruction must be included in all public school curricula if we are to educate, inform and train our youth to lead.

What’s your thoughts about Marjorie Taylor-Greene, https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/greene-trump-republicans/2021/02/05/f3e0a7be-67cf-11eb-886d-5264d4ceb46d_story.html ? Bless her heart, she needs to be dismissed from her good job and quickly, https://pressgallery.house.gov/member-data/salaries. We must become more discerning about the candidates that we hire/elect to represent us. Also the kerfuffle at The Capital, last month seemed par for the course, I was not surprised with 45, stirring thangs up.

Let me hear from you….

Civic Education is only taught in some US Schools…

And that is clearly Voter Suppression, so once again the elected/ hires put this in place to deprive people from voting and of course it is people of color because some schools do teach a vigorous curricula of Civics Education. Here is a good read with stats, measures and key factors, https://www.americanprogress.org/issues/education-k-12/reports/2018/02/21/446857/state-civics-education/, The State of Civics Education
by Sarah Shapiro and Catherine Brown, go on to state “While this research highlights that no state currently provides sufficient and comprehensive civic education, there is reason to be optimistic that high-quality civics education can impact civic behavior.” and “Teaching Tolerance also funds school-level, classroom-level, and district-level projects that engage in youth development and encourage civics in action. Shapiro and Brown also stated “Few states provide service-learning opportunities or engage students in relevant project-based learning. In addition, few students are sufficiently prepared to pass the AP U.S. government exam.”

Voting is a Rites of Passage, all 18 year olds should look forward to this citizen action, but if schools do not teach it then they do not.

Typically I am not a big Rap fan but I understood everything that DJ Yellow, said… We must vote every election and vote the entire ballot, It all matters.
