What Could the French “Yellow Vests” Teach Us about Ourselves?

What Could the French “Yellow Vests” Teach Us about Ourselves?

The French #yellowvest protesters could carry a liberating lesson for us: To achieve real democracy and basic fairness requires that we, too, claim our dignity.  We can reject any notion that there is shame in announcing that we are struggling to get by in America’s brutal form of capitalism. Why should we feel shame when the scales of our economy are so titled?  Within a market driven by corporate America’s one-rule obsession (i.e. do what brings highest return to existing wealth), sadly we end up with more extreme inequality than in roughly 120 countries, including—believe it or not—India and Mali.

Historic Moment for Equality in India as Millions Link Arms to Form 400-Mile “Women’s Wall”

A day after millions of women stood together in the Indian state to form a nearly 400-mile-long human chain to call for equality, two women made history—and sparked protests and a call for a state-wide shutdown—when they entered the #Sabarimala temple in the state of Kerala in the early hours Wednesday. They were the first women to enter the holy Hindu site since a ban on women of menstrual age was lifted just over three months ago, as protests have blocked others from entering previously. #womenswall

Yemen Remains on the Precipice of a Large-Scale Famine

Yemen Remains on the Precipice of a Large-Scale Famine

A new study shows the “terrible tragedy” in its full scale: 67 percent of Yemen’s population needs “urgent action to save lives and livelihoods.” That means that 20 million Yemenis are vulnerable to death. A quarter of a million of these Yemenis are “on the brink of starvation.” The study points out that “armed conflict remains the main driver of food insecurity in Yemen.” That’s an obvious point, but it needs to be made. The war on Yemen has to end to prevent the near-death of the Yemeni people. #yemencantwait

This Holiday Season, I’m Standing With Migrants

This Holiday Season, I’m Standing With Migrants

Caravan participants I met expressed so much faith — both in God and the idea that United States is a place that embraces those fleeing violence and poverty. What else can they do in the face of such an existential threat but hope and pray for a chance for their families to live? In the season when many celebrate the birth of a child whose family had to flee to another country to keep him alive, what does our shared humanity demand from parents making the same difficult choice today? #standwithmigrants

The Opposite of Evil Is No Longer Goodness

Being “good”—kind and honest with those we touch directly—is admirable and desirable, but we need more. It’s time to elevate another virtue: courage. We can be “good” within our pack, but can we break with the pack? Can we stand when we’re the only one standing? #courage #people

Why Should Child Slavery Matter to You?

Why Should Child Slavery Matter to You?

Imagine your childhood without school, without your family, forced to work in physically demanding jobs… this is the life of a child exploited. But, we believe that every child has a right to live a real childhood. Freeing the millions of children affected by this is a huge task, but one man, Kailash Satyarthi, has dedicated his life to ending child slavery. So far, he and his foundation have helped free 88,000 children from forced labor. We still have a long way to go, but even the smallest amounts of help are crucial. If you would like to be a part of the movement, you can click the blue donate button to contribute. Tune in on November 27 to watch the feature film documentary ‘The Price of Free’, here on SoulPancake.
