The Bible And Trans Persons Make The Pages Of The New York Times

Dana Beyer | September 26, 2016 | Queer Voices
It's obvious that trans visibility has progressed sufficiently that The Times would publish such an op-ed. That's a very good show of progress. The story, however, doesn't end there.

Dana Beyer | September 26, 2016 | Queer Voices
Trump is a fascist. Win or lose, he has, with the connivance of the American corporate media which has provided him with billions of earned (free) media, permanently changed the nature of American politics.

Banks Used Low Wages, Job Insecurity To Force Employees To Commit Fraud

Dave Johnson | September 20, 2016 | Business
Banks profit from low wages and job insecurity in more ways than the obvious. They don't just pocket the wage differential; they use the poverty-level wages and job insecurity to force employees to do unethical things they couldn't otherwise get them to do.

Catherine A. Wood | September 14, 2016 | DC
We get to choose to believe the stories that hold us back, make us feel small and unworthy, and keep us from committing to our goals. The feeling of deserving is just that: a feeling. It is not a truth or a fact.

Restoring Our Republic

Rep. John Sarbanes | September 14, 2016 | Politics
Keeping our republic has become the passion of millions of Americans who are convinced that their government is broken.

Eric Holder | September 8, 2016 | Black Voices
We all have to take a role in addressing discrimination where it exists. I believe Airbnb has done that, and while the effort is still a work in progress, this work will lead to better policies and technologies that will bring us together and ultimately end discrimination.
