The Conference on Race, Class, Gender, and Ethnicity would
like to announce its 16th Annual Conference, “Waking Up from the
American Dream: The Sober Reality of Class in America.” On Saturday, February
25th, 2012, academics, community activists, practitioners, and students will
come together at the UNC School of Law Rotunda to contribute to the
rejuvenation of a discussion of class and inequality. We hope to encourage a
heterodox approach grounded in the intersection of an honest exploration of
class and the realities of racial, feminist, ethnic, and queer identities and
the law. For more information and to register please visit our website, http://studentorgs.law.unc.edu/crcge/conferences/2012/default.aspx.
Saturday, February 25, 2012 - 9:00am to 5:00pm
UNC School of Law, Van Hecke-Wettach Hall, 160 Ridge Road, Chapel Hill, NC 27599-3380
I have "School Board 101" tomorrow and Friday, so if I were smart, I'd probably wait to write this after being trained in how to avoid saying something stupid. But that's never quite been my style, so here goes. As always, note that I speak here for myself only, not the CHCCS board in this.
Every election cycle we hear the familiar refrain that this is the most important election of our life. For the first time in my life, I believe it. 2012 IS the most important election we have faced. Anger and frustration toward elected officials reigns. We face extreme budgetary challenges as a state and nation. Anytime you express policy differences you are immediately charged with being anti-American. There is no focus on finding solutions to problems. 2012 is pivotal in determining whether the state we leave our children is better or worse than in the past.
There will be a march from Carrboro Town Commons (where the Really Really Free Market will be going on) to Abbey Court to protest the management's attempt to evict and fine the Human Rights Center which has done great work to support and organize residents.

Carrboro’s controversial four-year-old anti-loitering ordinance, which prohibited people from lingering at the intersection of Jones Ferry and Davie roads past 11:00 am, was rescinded in a unanimous decision Tuesday evening at a meeting of the Carrboro Board of Aldermen before a full chamber of community members.
