A summer of activism in DC -– protests for voting rights, for housing, for a living wage, for climate policy, for the right to tell the truth about Black History and be protected from police terror– culminated on August 28th in a day of actions, including the Make Good Trouble Rally, which brought together a coalition of organizations on the 58th anniversary of the 1963 March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom.
Plus headlines on pandemic unemployment; Biden vaccine mandates; indictments in case of Ahmaud Arbery and Elijah McClain; Robert E. Lee monument goes down; Ida impact lingers; activists want to avoid ‘disaster capitalist’ exploitation of poor and haphazard treatment of evacuees from Ida.
