This week Intel announced new job benefit policies that include tripling their adoption assistance program, and quadrupling their fertility coverage, noting, "family is family -- no matter what it looks like."
A report released on October 15 is a major step in President Obama's commitment to expand the number of states enacting "Leelah's Law," which would ban the use of conversion therapy to change the sexual orientation or gender identity of lesbian, gay and transgender children and youth.
After the release of the Senate Intelligence Committee's report on CIA torture in December 2014, seven Fordham professors formed Fordham Against Torture, an ad-hoc committee that petitioned the university president to revoke CIA Director John Brennan's honorary degree.
Fordham University's award of an honorary degree to John Brennan, an unapologetic advocate of torture, is a scandal for Christians, a dark moment in the university's history, and a betrayal of its Catholic commitment to human dignity.

We have become so used to spending time and attention on what comes up on the screens of our devices, that we actually develop a "relationship" with our devices.
At Covenant House, the hemisphere's largest movement of programs and shelter services for homeless and trafficked young people, we see far too many kids who have been forced into prostitution.
Such bonds can be harder to break than handcuffs, especially when a young person has been told for years that they aren't worth anything, and they have few skills, no diplomas, and few prospects for supporting themselves outside the sex industry.
If we want to fight the sexual exploitation of young people, we absolutely must fight youth homelessness. Kids who don't have a safe place to stay enter a direct pipeline to the pimps and exploiters who recognize their desperation and are waiting to prey on them.
I am inspired by CVS and will continue to be a customer. I may even buy their stock.
While there are no firm numbers of how much the forced sex and labor trade expands during the week of the Super Bowl, the influx of hundreds of thousands of visitors means more homeless kids may be put at risk. And make no mistake, vulnerable kids are at risk.
Researchers discovered that schools are often unaware of third party contractors' use of student data. In many cases, school contracts with online service providers lack clear guidance for safeguarding this information as required under federal law.
The bill, known as the Trafficking Victims Protection and Justice Act, declares that 16- and 17-year-olds who are arrested for prostitution are victims in need of services, not criminals. Right now only youth through age 15 get that protection. Hitting your Sweet 16 birthday shouldn't mean that you no longer need justice.
Today we are releasing the findings from one of the largest human trafficking studies among homeless youth in New York history, and the news is numbin...
Fordham student health insurance covers contraceptives. However, because Fordham follows rules promulgated by Catholic bishops, the university prohibits the actual distribution of birth control prescriptions at campus health centers. This policy has inspired discontent among reproductive rights advocates.
