A grim reminder of what is at stake for many of the asylum seekers that make it to our border and why they U.S. government needs to treat the issue of asylum deadly seriously. Back in January of this year The New Yorker’s Sarah Stillman reported on people who fled their home countries fearing for their lives, and the tragic consequences when they were sent back. This video provides some of the back story. The original New Yorker story from January is here.
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.
