Suppressing the Native American vote

Educated, empowered and engaged at Power Summit
Recently, I had the privilege to speak on a panel at Voto Latino's fourth Power Summit in San Jose, CA. As a non-partisan organization, Voto Latino engages Latino/a Millennials in the civic process through the power of media, technology and celebrity voices. Since its founding 10 years ago by soc....

If you look at the decisions that are made by our public officials, it’s easy to see that they are influenced by the people who vote them into office. That’s why voting is so critical to the Latino community. At the same time lets also remember that voting is important not just in the upcoming Nov....

Five reasons Latinos should vote in November
All elections matter. This November, Americans will choose governors in 36 states, elect the entire House of Representatives and one-third of the Senate, select a great majority of their state legislators, and decide who will represent them in hundreds of local elections. The decisions these offic....

Who stole television news?
They're selling us another war on television. As a Washington media strategist, people ask me, “Who's offering alternatives to war on the Sunday morning news shows?” As reported by the New York Times, military analysts dominating the Sunday airwaves, marshaling support for war in the Middle East, ....

Latinos targeted by Koch Brothers campaign
On a sweltering summer afternoon in the Phoenix suburb of Scottsdale, a small group of local Latino business owners and their families gathered in an upscale venue called Venue.

Stop, listen, little voices are calling to us
In the past few weeks, I’ve been mesmerized by the voices of young refugees from Central America, telling their stories. One little girl I read about was described by the reporter as no more than eight or nine. She sat in a chair holding a doll before the immigration authorities, swinging her feet....

Latino participation is critical this November
The last couple of months have been disheartening for Latinos who were hoping for action in repairing the nation’s immigration system. Faced with insult on immigration from one political party and broken promises from the other, Latinos may be tempted to sit on the sidelines in the 2014 midterms. ....

Ferguson through the eyes of a reporter
Watching the television news footage of the riots in Ferguson, Mo., I remembered a unique assignment I worked more than 30 years ago, but will never forget. The screaming protestors. The heavily armed police. The burning buildings. The Ferguson unrest started after the killing of unarmed black t....

Militarization of police is a deliberate strategy
It used to be billy clubs, fire hoses and snarling German shepherds. Now it's armored personnel carriers and flash-bang grenades. The weaponry has changed, but the target is still the same. If some of the photos from Ferguson recently were in black and white, you might confuse them with scenes fr....
