Rivers Frederick III I like this ordinance but do all city of New Orleans' employees make at least $10.10/ hr? If not the city should ensure that its own employees make a living wage before requiring it of its contractors and grant recipients.

"Given the explosive, high-end growth Nashville and many other urban communities across the country are experiencing, perhaps it’s time to consider a “penny on the dollar.” For every dollar invested in commercial development, new residence construction, or rehabilitation of existing structures within Nashville, why are we not requiring that one penny of each dollar spent be set aside to fund the development of affordable housing? Consider that with just the new $350 million dollar construction of a 35-story Marriott Hotel now being planned in downtown Nashville; a penny per dollar set aside would generate a desperately needed three and a half million dollars towards procuring new affordable housing."

How a Rapidly Gentrifying City Can Help Its Most Vulnerable

Gentrification is pushing out the last of affordable housing units. Here's what cities need to do for its low-income populations.

""Despite her relative good fortune, Laura says she can never move forward because her son never stops dying. “Twice a year, right in front of me, he disappears into psychosis, and there is very little left of who he is. Then medicine resurrects him for a few months, I have much of my child back, then he dies again.”
Although she mourns the life Zac has lost — sports, pals, girlfriend, college — at 49, she also wonders: “What happened to my life?”"

"In a series of stories this year, USA TODAY has detailed the human and financial cost of caring so little about the nearly 10 million Americans who are seriously mentally ill. It’s a cost borne disproportionately by patients’ families, and it is crushing many of them.

About 40% of the most disabled mentally ill are cared for by relatives — but not forever.

“In the end, most of them bail out. They can’t take it any longer,” says Doris Fuller of the Treatment Advocacy Center, which wants to make it easier to legally compel the recalcitrant mentally ill to accept treatment.

Families can force their psychotic members to enter an institution or receive treatment only by proving they’re dangerous to themselves or others. Even then, a shortage of facilities ensures that patients often are discharged prematurely. And families face exorbitant out-of-pocket costs for all but the most basic care.

So Laura Pogliano feels lucky that she’s been able to hang in, lucky that Zac is not living in jail or under a bridge."

Zac Pogliano Dies In Sleep: Mother and Son Spoke Frankly About Struggles - Pete Earley

It is with much sadness that I am noting the death of Zac Pogliano, whose mother, Laura, has been a tireless advocate for mental health care and reforms. Mother and son told their stories eloquently to USA TODAY for its wonderful series: Mental Illness: The Cost of Not Caring. In August 2013, Laura…

Below are some quotes from a STUNNING TALK GIVEN BY Michelle Alexander about Race & Caste in the U.S. Listen to her talk or read the transcript at the link. Please let me know if you are not able to access the files. I would be happy to email them to you directly.

"We have now successfully locked millions of poor people, overwhelmingly poor people of color, into a permanent second-class status. Many of them are angry. Many of them don’t know how to manage their anger. When you see images of Ferguson, of young people looting, bursting into stores, what you see is hurt, what you see is anger, what you see is rage without a direction. That’s not to excuse it. But we have to understand it. "

"I began to have my awakening. I began to awaken to the reality that our criminal justice system functions much more like a system of racial and social control than a system of crime prevention and control."

"What’s happened in America is not simply that black folks suddenly decided to be violent. No. What’s happened in America is that there has been a radical transformation of our economy and the political system as it relates to the management of the dispossessed. "
