New citizens are not the only ones who gain advantages from increased naturalizations. We all benefit when our neighbors, and their children, are grounded in American values; citizenship does that. It's a rite of passage that unites us, that makes us all part of the rich American fabric.

Aletha Maybank, M.D., MPH

In the context of a contentious political season, it should not be surprising that much of what the Movement for Black Lives has been calling for has been framed as a polarizing, political agenda, when at much of its core, it is a public health agenda.

Dr. Judith Rich

So before you decide your vote doesn't matter in this election, consider this question: where else in your life have you left the playing field because you didn't like or agree with the way the game was being played? What relationships have stopped working due, in part, to your decision not to fully participate?

Is This America?

Stephanie Mitchell Hughes | Posted 10.10.2016 | Politics
Stephanie Mitchell Hughes

The 2016 election cycle in the United States has been protracted, hostile, and ranged from merely discordant to bizarre. The level of xenophobia, misogyny, and racial hatred so openly expressed without conscience is utterly breathtaking. It is all reminiscent of the paralyzing terror that African Americans endured for a century following the abrupt end of the Reconstruction Era in the late 1800s.

Four Things You Can Do To Stop Trump

Eric Gastfriend | Posted 10.06.2016 | Politics
Eric Gastfriend

Your grandchildren will not ask what you did during the 2012 election. But if Trump is elected, I guarantee they will ask what you were doing during October and November 2016. This election cycle, it is not sufficient to silently vote for Clinton and see what happens. The polls have narrowed dangerously in the last month, and notwithstanding Hillary's post-debate bounce, the election is still far too close.
