Success Academy Charter Schools is a a free public charter school network in New York City. It is open to all residents of New York State, and attendance is determined by lottery. Seventy-six percent of the children who attend Success Academy live in low income households. About Ninety-three percent of the children who attend Success Academy are children of color.
There are many unique issues that face people of color throughout their lives, from birth to adulthood. These issues consist of a complex mixtures of inequality, disrespect, stereotypes, discrimination and alienation on many different levels. These issues affect children of color in a large variety of ways. This is an important issue that Success Academy takes into consideration, since 93% of its student body consists of children of color. Being female also comes with it’s own unique experiences, issues and struggles.
Success Academy Crown Heights has taken on these issues by offering a Girl’s Group club. It was started in 2014 by Cole Yaverbaum, a special education teacher who had started teaching second graders. The Girls’ Group takes place on Wednesday afternoons. Girls sit in a circle on a rug, eat lunch and talk about how their days went. After chatting and eating lunch, certain pre-planned topics are spoken about. For example the girls may have a discussion about what stereotypes are, and give examples of stereotypes. These discussions are meant to invoke critical thinking about personal identity, female empowerment and how the media depicts girls. The Girls’ Club provides a safe space for girls where they can share experiences, take interest in relevant social topics and form strong, confident, secure identities as women in general, as well as women of color. Any girl of any background can join the club, but the majority of children who go to Success Academy are people of color, and in the picture of the Girls’ Club, every girl is a child of color. So having a space space like this is an advantage to take on issues specifically pertaining to being girls of color—not just being girls or being people of color.
Despite these explicit precepts ingrained into our very own American culture by our own legislators, many still fall subject to discrimination.Currently, if authorities even suspect you of having illegal status, they can detain you. The enforcement of recent immigration laws, under a jurisdiction perceived as trivial, should not be adhered. A Presidential outbursts claiming that all Mexicans are murderers and rapists, is in fact, racist, and should be reprimanded not made into law.

Whoever is sanctioning these human rights violations against people who have not committed a crime against America country men, is as unAmerican as those who he claims should find no refuge in our great country.
I wonder, just how effective is the ACLU in dire times such as these? Border law enforcement has gone to such an extent, that Immigrant workers are becoming victims of law enforcement abuse, much too often. Stereotyping and racial profiling, seem to be the only grounds which our suffering immigrated population, are being denied due process and mudered for.
That is up until the recent case triumph of Michael and Jim. The two Co-founders of Phoenix New Times and The Village Voice Media and Phoenix New Times, where they each were wrongfully arrested by Sheriff Joe Arpaio. Resulting in a unique chain of events, in contrast to other happenings. The two independent media owners, won in their case against Arpaio, and then used the settlement as funding towards several of Arizona’s migrant rights organizations.
The settlement allotted the two gentlemen, was for a whopping $3.75 million after one night in 2007, where each was pulled from their respective residences and jailed. What exactly was their crime? Obviously nothing, since we know that they won the case. But what is entirely disturbing about their story is this.
The reason they had undergone such a trying time is purely because of the evidence that Arpaio feared could be made available in their own notes, which covered the litigation that could jeopardize Joe Arpaio’s career as Maricopa County Sheriff.
Though population increase of immigrants is frequently blamed for crime and civil unrest, it is clear as day that the true culprit here, is none other than the one who is supposed to be upholding the law. While men in uniform are in pursuit of these victims of scapegoat, they are in pursuit of none other than their own happiness. Who is going to pursue the predatory police or investigate their interrogations of migrant workers.
Can the ACLU do nothing to combat legally backed racism? Will causes of social vigilance and awareness, such as Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin’s Frontera Fund , be the voice of a desperate generation? I think we speak for all Americans, documented and undocumented, as we cry out for change.

Since time immemorial money has characteristically featured in almost politics all over the world with the most wealthy having their say to power. Thanks to the American’s Supreme Court decision of 2010, the money in politics debate took a new turn. The court established that corporate are people and thanks to this ruling opened a new avenue for wealthy corporations and individuals to push their agendas by writing big checks and spending untraceable amounts of money in politics. Things, however, are turning around.
From this ruling and the infiltration of dirty money in politics, a Political Action Committee (PAC) was established to fight back, and for sure, nothing is standing in their way of achieving this goal. End Citizens United is a PAC formed in 2015, March 1st to help transform the money discussion in the American politics. The PAC is an organization entirely funded by the grassroots donors with a goal to streamline the money in politics discussion. Through the help of grassroots donors, End Citizens United is seeking to streamline the rigged out American electoral process by helping champion the course on the front.
Despite there being no maximum limit on the amount of money to spend on politics, End Citizen United has capped its donations at $5000 from an individual donor. The other strategy this political action group is using to champion financial political reforms is by supporting the races of brave legislators who will help champion financial reforms in the country.
With just a year in business, the activist group has been able to collect at least $4 million in the first three months of its operations and projects an increasing amount of support comes the congress elections of 2018. According to sources, the group is projecting figures of around $35 million. This will be a huge improvement of the $25 million collected for the 2016 elections.
Among the individuals the End Citizens United has helped drive for contributions in their favor include Jon Ossoff, a congress Democrat candidate in Georgia. Ossoff, 30 years of age is a first-time candidate. Thanks to the support of End Citizens United, Ossoff managed to surpass the $4 million target required for the April 18 special election for him to fill the vacant House seat left by Tom Price when he was elected to the Health and Human Services Secretary Position.
Jon Ossoff is just one of the nominees the group has shown its support to. According to Muller, the group that was relatively new during the 2016 elections is planning to support various candidates in the 2018 elections. With this dedication and drive, End Citizens United will sooner than later have a strong representation in Congress championing for its transformative agenda of driving out the huge untraceable money in politics.

Kim Dao is seen prancing around in a wooded area displaying her audience of her autumn and winter fashion that she hopes will inspire her 327,000 subscribers.
Kim Dao uses a voiceover to explain where she selected each clothing item and why it suits her personally. Her first look is a dark grey knit sweater tucked into a ruffled burgundy skirt topped with an accessorized heart shaped choker and simple black heeled booties. Kim Dao mentions that there are shorts underneath her skirt, making it a tad bit more modest.
Kim Dao’s next arrangement is a fitted tan long sleeve shirt with vertical stripes indented all along the shirt. She adds some color with her Sacramento colored maxi skirt, and keeps it somewhat professional and weather appropriate with a pair of midnight black knee length boots.
Her third outfit is a daring collared burgundy red dress. This get up alone can give anyone ‘Andy Sachs walking through the streets of New York’ vibes. Ditching any accessories, she pairs the stunning red dress with gold strapped high heels that ultimately pull the look together.
Moreover, Dao gives a school girl look with this dark themed look — perfect for the cold months. She sports a low V neck navy blue top with red and white outlines. She accessorizes again with a choker, but this one however dangles from her neck. She matches the sweater top with a correlating colored plaid pencil skirt.
Very lastly, Dao play with colors in a button down collared shirt with an array of vertical stripes and breast pockets tucked into a pair of lightly faded denim blue jeggings. She also sports another dangly black choker along with matching black pointy flats.
