UniteWomen.org ACTION endorses Hillary Clinton and Democrats

UniteWomen.org ACTION Endorses Hillary Clinton and Democrats

UniteWomen.org ACTION was established in February of 2012 to combat the Republican attacks on women’s rights on the federal and state levels. Our continued effort has highlighted the efforts by Republicans to not only diminish our rights but to block any progress toward equality. We have also highlighted the efforts by President Obama and Democrats to push for progressive values and further our ...


Hillary Clinton, Alice Paul, Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony Making History in New Jersey!

Hillary Clinton wins Democratic Nominee

It seemed as if by divine plan that on Tuesday, June 7, it will be of all states, New Jersey, that will clinch the primary election for the first-ever nomination of a woman of a major political party. In fact, I could not wait to announce the significance of it all happening in New Jersey. New Jersey is, after all, the state where women's right to vote began in the United States. Then the night be...

No Difference Between the Parties? Think Again

Laws of Two Nations

As we enter the general election, some claim there is no difference between the Democratic Party and the Republican Party. One way to look at the differences is to compare the bills introduced and/or passed both on the federal and state level. Another is to compare the party platforms. We created Laws of Two Nations to look at both. The 2016 party platforms will be voted upon at their respective...

Join the club!” - Senator Rand Paul Laughter ensued. “Who doesn’t get up, a little anxious for work every day, and their back hurts?!” Rand said. “Everybody over 40 has back pain.” My first thought upon hearing his words, was a familiar phrase about Rand and the horse he road in on; immediately f...

Clear & Present Danger in Presidential Campaign

2016 USA presidential election poster. EPS 10

By an anonymous guest blogger: This country needs to have a serious adult discussion about this campaign cycle for President of the United States. It is a discussion that will be hard to have but it is imperative we have it. For several months we have all been laughing and thinking this campaign was a joke and could not be for real. I am guilty of it as well. I have tried to convince myself ...


Why We Should All Be Learning African-American History Every Month

segregation_big

In 2002, the NJ Legislature passed Assembly Bill 1301, also known as The Amistad Bill; a directive for NJ schools to incorporate African-American history into their social studies curriculum. To be clear, this law wasn’t just for “those” kids or “that” community, and it was certainly not meant to be exclusive to the month of February. “In presenting the sweeping narrative of American h...


“Voting doesn’t matter” and Other Myths that Enable Political Corruption

VOTING-RIGHTS-ACT

Now I can only speak as an American, but one that has been immersed in the seedy underbelly of New Jersey politics. Add to that a stint as a political coordinator for a major NYC labor union (during the last mayoral primaries), and you can start to imagine the things I’ve seen and heard. My approach to any work environment always comes with an anthropological lens. I not only seek to understand ...


My Muslim Uncle & Childhood Lessons on Tolerance

IMG_4545

On a day I remember to be like any other, perhaps while watching Nickelodeon and sitting too close to the TV, my uncle arrived home from college. He had just graduated and had converted to Islam. He had a new name. “Call me Uncle Amin”, he told my cousin and me. When we’d forget and say “Uncle Andre” over and over again, he would ignore us until we got it right. My uncle would go on to g...
