Meet Susan Burton, an activist Michelle Alexander called a “modern-day Harriet Tubman”

  • In a moving essay for the Nation, prison reform expert Michelle Alexander introduces the world to Susan Burton.
  • In Los Angeles, Burton — who cycled in and out of the criminal justice system for years after her son was accidentally run over by an LAPD officer, the Nation essay explained — founded an organization called A New Way of Life, which provides housing and support services to people who’ve been recently released from prison. 
  • Many of those people are women, who often have to navigate a stifling bureaucracy in order to get their lives on track and keep their families together.
  • Burton is on the front lines with these women and their families, operating a network of “safe houses” to house women who can’t find other places to live. Read more (5/15/17)

Pro Women Photos 2015 US Cup #1 Bonelli Park

A few shots from the women’s race (no men, sorry guys we fled to the beach in the afternoon). Emily Batty took the win in front of Catharine Pendrel and Georgia Gould. Outstanding performance by local girl Larissa Connors finishing in 4th. Stoke levels must be off the stoke chart.

Riding through the streets of Eastside Los Angeles, the Ovarian Psycos — a bicycle brigade of women of color — confront violence on the streets and in their own lives. In 2013, filmmakers Kate Trumbull and Joanna Sokolowski set out to create a documentary about the crew and their refusal to stay silent in the face of violence against women and poverty in their community. The film follows Xela de la X, the Ovas’ founder, as she struggles to strike a balance between her activism and caring for her young daughter; Andi, a street artist who rises through the crew’s ranks; and Evie, a bright-eyed recruit who discovers newfound confidence with the Ovas.

Now, three years later, the film is set to premiere at SXSW 2016, and the filmmakers want to bring Xela, Andi, and Evie to the festival to witness it. “They are the heartbeat of this film,” they say. Help them finish the film and bring these inspiring women to the festival here.

You have people in this country now who really want to divide our people. They want to divide Blacks, from Hispanics, from Whites, from Asians. That’s what the Willie Horton ads are all about. They’re saying “Hey, if the Blacks get a job, all White people are going to lose their jobs.” And I think that type of divisiveness, and that type of politics is awful and not what this country is supposed to be about. What we have got to do is bring our people together and not have Blacks against Whites- but create an economy where all our people will have decent jobs, decent health care- national health care system - decent educational opportunity. Let us not let the bigots and the racists divide us together. Because when they divide us together, then the rich will get richer. When we all stand together Black and White and demand decent help for our senior citizens- White or Black- and our children - White or Black or Hispanic- that’s when we’re gonna win.
