          Census Challenges Jeopardize Efforts Towards Greater Equity in the South
    
          July 31, 2017
    
          Should anything go awry with the 2020 count, it could have political implications affecting how voting districts are drawn or how language minorities can access the ballot. Important funding decisions are also driven by Census data. Nationwide, nearly $600 billion in federal funding is allocated to states based on Census numbers, according to a recent report by the George Washington Institute of Public Policy. Southern states receive $179.2 billion of that total.

          Many Bridges, One River: Organizing for Justice in Vietnamese-American Communities
    
          July 31, 2017
    
          Many Bridges, One River is the first published collection of interviews with organizers and activists who have been working in Vietnamese American communities throughout the United States, starting in the 1970s. These interviews document the strategies and lessons learned in the fight for social justice and progressive social change by Vietnamese Americans with powerful insights dealing with red-baiting, inter-generational differences and sustainable activism.

          Transgender Liberation Won&#039;t Be Found in the Military 
    
          July 31, 2017
    
          Contrary to the rhetoric dominating the news cycle right now, trans liberation doesn't look like gender non-conforming bodies in military uniforms killing civilians overseas. It doesn't include rallying for entrenchment into the military-industrial complex that furthers the imperialist aims of the United States, or assimilating in hopes that a country that has never cared for trans lives will begin to.

          The Big Lie About California’s Housing Crisis
    
          July 31, 2017
    
          As California stands at the height of the worst housing crisis the state has ever seen, hundreds of tenants across multiple cities are taking matters into their own hands by confronting corporate landlords to demand a freeze on rent increases. The tenants and organizations leading this are part of a new, broad-based coalition, Housing Now!, to fight for the repeal of the statewide restrictions on rent control - established by the Costa Hawkins Rental Housing Act.

          Reality Check: More Police Officers Don’t Equal Safer Neighborhoods 
    
          July 31, 2017
    
          Earlier this year, activists launched a campaign called Freedom Cities to protect and uplift all people of color. (And, no, it doesn't include more police.)

          Hire Power: Los Angeles Employment Program Breaks New Ground
    
          July 31, 2017
    
          The Los Angeles Black Worker Center was founded seven years ago to increase access to quality jobs for African-Americans. Rather than focusing solely on job training, the Center is working to connect people with actual jobs through programs like the LA Local Hire program.

          Is Your Extra-Virgin Olive Oil All That Virginal?
    
          July 31, 2017
    
          Olive oil fraud abounds: some producers blend cheap nut, seed, or other vegetable oils with just enough olive oil to lend the look, taste, and aroma of the real thing. Other perpetrators  dilute extra-virgin olive oil with lower-grade olive oil, or mislabel lesser olive oil as extra-virgin. Last, though not nearly as appalling, packers intentionally mislabel the country of origin.
