Tennessee Continued Attacks Against Education

Author Silas Lee explores the racist and sexist past of Tennessee and it's continued impact on the education system today. 

 

Tennessee has and continues to have issues on the education front, now they've decided to add even more. May 5th 2021 the Tennessee state Senate voted 25-7 to pass a bill banning teaching critical race theory as well as being able to refuse funding to schools and teachers that demonstrate genuine issues in America and American history. Issues such as sexism, racism, effects of white supremacy, and bias are expected to not be taught in Tennessee anymore. Tennessee governor Bill Lee has signed this bill into law as of May 25th, 2021.

What Can We Learn From Prohibition? - Part One

This article is by YES member Josh Lorenzo

Prohibition: what was supposed to be an alcohol-free dream soon turned into a vicious nightmare. When Congress passed the Eighteenth Amendment in January 1919, many saw alcohol as an evil force that caused nothing but crime, poverty, and violence. Few expected that banning it would only inflame the issues. In this four-part series, we'll examine Prohibition, why it failed, and what we can learn from it.

Response to Trump’s “Save America” Rally

Written by: Daniel Bumbarger, Noah Martin, Charlie McVicker, Shannel Pittman, Josh Lorenzo, Manuel Lopez, Avery Seal

The Young Ecosocialists condemn the actions that took place at the Capitol Building today, both those taken by protesters and by a complicit police force. Having clearly lost the election, President Trump has continued to embolden white supremacists, fascists, and other far-right radicals. This is nothing new for President Trump. He has a long pattern of embracing his fascist followers with comments of “very fine people on both sides” after the white supremacist Unite The Right Rally in 2017. He has repeatedly encouraged violence and failed to condemn these groups, famously telling the Proud Boys to “Stand back and stand by” in the first presidential debate of 2020. This behavior has predictably incited right wing violence all across the country.

Community Land Trusts: Socializing Capital to Stop the For-Profit Housing Industry

Are community land trusts a viable solution to housing crises and gentrification in America’s big cities?

Written by Josh Lorenzo

Housing is becoming more and more costly, and the working-class is being given the short end of the stick. Let's face it – current housing policies put profits over people. Millions of people are severely rent-burdened, meaning they spend over half their income on rent. A significant amount of them spend over 80% of their income on rent. Millions more have 30%-49% of their income going towards paying rent.

An untold amount of people live in poor housing conditions, including a lack of sanitation and overcrowding. Hundreds of thousands of people, including tens of thousands of children, are homeless in cities where architecture is becoming more anti-homeless. These issues disproportionately affect racial minorities, especially African and Latinx Americans. And the COVID-19 pandemic has only further exposed how deep these inequalities run.

The Young Ecosocialists of the Green Party of the United Caucus Supports Intersex Day of Solidarity & Remembrance

The Young Ecosocialists Caucus (YES) of the Green Party of the United States (GPUS) gives our support to Intersex Day of Solidarity, also known as Intersex Day Of Remembrance, and we ask the entire GPUS to join us in this support.  This event fits with the Pillars, Values and Platform shared by both the GPUS and the YES.  In addition to respect for diversity, respect for feminism, respect for gender self-determination and social/economic justice, these include reproductive rights.  These include the rights of pregnant people to carry intersex fetuses without interference by anti-intersex medical professionals.  These include the rights of intersex babies and children to be protected from unnecessary genital surgeries which amount to forced sterilization of minority children.  These include the rights of all intersex people to bodily autonomy and fully informed choice in medical decisions about their bodies.
