There have been 7,000 children lost to gun violence since the mass shooting at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newton, Connecticut. The activist group AVAAZ made the impact of that statistic materially visible last Monday, March 12th, by arranging 7,000 pairs of empty shoes on a lawn near the Capitol Building, hoping to move the legislators inside to pass meaningful gun reform legislation.
Samantha Bee’s prayers are answered. A generation is coming that won’t repeat our mistakes.
Since our platform is about expressing ideas and ideals instead of cash flow, clicks, or fundraising, we have the freedom to include a wide range of topics and formats that might not work elsewhere. We don’t need or want paid content, promotional materials, or story lines designed to please donors.
So the idea here is to present videos one or more of the editors feel speaks to them. Sometimes it will be news. Sometimes it will be history. And a lot of the time it will be culture. You can not and should not separate these things: it is diversity and intersectionality that makes our movement strong.
