people – more than 37 million – already struggle with hunger. Physicians for

already dangerous situation for communities most at risk. Panelists will
discuss how social determinants of health contribute to food insecurity, the

and distribution in U.S. food chain systems, and how the destruction of
livelihoods will shape policies responding to food insecurity going forward.

Wisconsin, Texas, and Florida) to teach voters about executive races during the

Fast Company's World Changing Ideas 2019—and now this essential primer on how
our government was designed to work. Using clear commentary and graphics,
Sheehan has annotated the entire Constitution, from its preamble through the
amendments, explaining the document’s provisions, pointing out its loopholes,
and giving readers everything they need to become informed, effective voters.

Trump's attacks on NATO, Merkel's step away from public life, Italy's government

Trump Administration is again beating the war drums. Most recently, the
target is Iran. Should the Trump administration initiate an act of war
against Iran, consider joining us. It is a violation of U.S. law for the Trump
Administration to attack a country that has not attacked us, as only Congress
can declare war. The Trump administration is nevertheless beating the war drums
for war against Iran and Venezuela. Should a war criminal, John Bolton, convince
Trump to attack either of these countries, such a military strike would demand
an immediate and unequivocal response from us to show that we will not tolerate
his abuse of power.
Let's mobilize to show
that we the people will not tolerate another military
adventure, which would be bound to have profound negative consequences. If
a military strike against Iran or Venezuela takes place, then meet at 33rd and N. Charles St., Baltimore 21218. If the attack
is before 2 PM local time, then the event will begin at 5 PM, local
time. If the attack occurs after 5 PM local time, then the event
will begin at 5 PM, local time, the following day. Contact Max at

United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights Michelle Bachelet has called the
Covid-19 crisis a “colossal test of leadership.” Since the pandemic emerged,
Bachelet has advocated forcefully for a human rights-based response, calling
for universal access to health care, global solidarity, and efforts to mitigate
the impact on women and vulnerable groups such as migrants, prisoners, and the
poor. Bachelet has warned of the threat to civil liberties posed by governments
that use the Covid-19 emergency as cover to concentrate power or introduce repressive
policies. She has cautioned that gender gaps and inequalities worsen when the
effects of such crises on women and vulnerable populations are not considered.
As a two-time former president of Chile, former head of UN Women, former health
minister and practicing physician, High Commissioner Bachelet is uniquely
attuned to how Covid-19 is impacting human rights in Latin America.
