  • Centering Black Women in policy is key to future families prosperity

    Aisha Nyandoro by: Aisha Nyandoro, Marjorie Sims, Trene Hawkins
    From leading marches for racial justice, to developing the COVID-19 vaccine, to reaching the second-highest office in the United States, Black womens excellence is more evident than ever. This year, we showed up for ourselves, our families, and our communities; and we also showed up for other women, families, and communities, too, as we have for generations. Now, it is time to honor Black women with bold policies that value our contributions, so that we and future generations can truly thrive.
      For even as we are achieve historic successes, racist and sexist systems, structures, and narratives persist and prevent our equity and dignity.

  • A $15 Minimum Wage Will Help Businesses Succeed

    Kristen Deptula by: Kristen Deptula
    As the Delaware House of Representatives considers legislation to raise the minimum wage, I encourage lawmakers to remember this: The economy reflects a continuous cycle of earning and spending, so when workers are making more money, they spend more, driving our economy forward.
      I support the minimum wage increase to $15 by 2025 passed by the Delaware Senate in March. Raising the minimum wage will be good for my small business and good for Delaware.
      Delawares $9.25 per hour minimum wage is too low for someone working full-time to cover rent, utilities, transportation, food and other necessities.

  • 50 years after the ratifying of the 26th Amendment: Where are youth politics now?

    Charles Beresford by: Charles Beresford
    July 1 will be the 50th anniversary of the ratification of the 26th Amendment, which lowered the eligible voting age from 21 to 18.
      There were continuous pushes for legal adults to be able to vote in elections dating back to the end of World War II. The idea of old enough to fight, old enough to vote was integral to the first youth activists. Eventually, this became the rallying cry of students during the backlash against the Vietnam War.
      With the struggle that many endured to secure the right for all young adult citizens to participate in elections, one might expect younger generations to continue this enthusiasm about voting and turn out in high numbers each election cycle.

  • Juneteenth: Freedom for all

    Azariah Chester by: Azariah Chester
    In the hit 2015 musical, Hamilton, John Laurens (played by Anthony Ramos) raps the line, And but well never be truly free until those in bondage have the same rights as you and me.
      This line did not come to fruition until June 19, 1865 in Galveston Bay, Texas when Union troops arrived and announced to slaves that they had been freed two and a half years ago by a now deceased president, Abraham Lincoln. As you may recall, the 16th President of the United States signed the Emancipation Proclamation that went into effect on January 1, 1863, declaring that blacks enslaved in southern states were now free.
