What a Glorious Day! On June 30, 2022, Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson became the first African American Female Supreme Court Justice.
We know that the road for her will be difficult, but God built her for this assignment. Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson will bring a different level of knowledge, sophistication, and insight and that will be shared with the other justices each time she makes a decision.
We are here to support her as we continue fighting for women's rights and freedoms. Today, little girls, young ladies, and all women should be proud and stand a little taller!
As part of the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, President Biden and Vice President Harris worked with Democrats, Republicans, and Independents to create the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP), which provides eligible households $30 per month off their internet bills. To deliver maximum cost savings to families, the Biden-Harris Administration has secured commitments from 20 leading internet providers to offer ACP-eligible households a high-speed internet plan for no more than $30 per month. Eligible families who pair their ACP benefit with one of these plans can receive high-speed internet at no cost.
Comrades repeatedly told the Army that Captain Paris Davis, one of the first Black Officers in the Army's Special Forces (aka Green Berets), deserved the Medal Of Honor. The Army kept losing the paperwork.
Since her helm of leadership, NEA President Becky Pringle has been pioneering the NEA to not only address institutional racism but how we as an Association can work alongside educators and our allies to address the inequalities that result from institutionally racist policies and practices in our schools and the communities in which the students we represent live. The NEA has been taking actions to address access and opportunity for all students by highlighting inequities and increasing awareness, organizing for change, and growing the movement – a movement for racial and social justice. In addition, our organization has taken a bold stance demanding “Justice for Black Lives,” advocating for justice and equity for Black lives in all places and in all forms – in our judicial, education, housing, health, and economic systems. Please look at this video to see NEA’s vision for this work: NEA Demands Justice for Black Lives Video.
