16th Annual Conference on Race, Class, Gender, and Ethnicity

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.

Date: 

Saturday, February 25, 2012 - 9:00am to 5:00pm

Location: 

UNC School of Law, Van Hecke-Wettach Hall, 160 Ridge Road, Chapel Hill, NC 27599-3380

Lee Scholars Charter School Moves Forward

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.

2012: My View; Marlowe Foster, Candidate for Labor Commissioner in North Carolina

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.
