I recently received an email that updated the situation of Amina Lawal in Nigeria. You may recognize the name, Amina Lawal, from the email and petitions campaigns that were buzzing a couple months ago that were intended to stop her from being stoned to death. A recent statement by the Baobab group for Women’s rights issues clarifications and ways that you can still be involved in aiding this sistah. If you have no idea what I am talking about, please click the link above!
On the domestic front, the Chicago Tribune ran an article today on the cutting of minority programs at colleges. Make sure to find out what each school did. Cutting and revision of programs is very different. The results were likely sparked by pressure form the “Center for Equal Opportunity” and the “American Civil Rights Institute’s” letters. Don’t sleep.
