16] – Physicians for Human Rights [firstname.lastname@example.org] is hosting a webinar on Mon., June 28 at 11 AM -- COVID in ICE Detention. The COVID-19 virus has posed a heightened threat to those in immigration custody. People held in U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) detention facilities across the country have faced deplorable living conditions that do not comply with Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines, and a critical lack of access to basic hygienic necessities throughout the pandemic. This conversation will be moderated by Lee Gelernt, JD, MSc, a civil rights lawyer at the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), where he serves as deputy director of the Immigrants’ Rights Project and director of the Project’s Access to the Courts Program. He is an adjunct professor at Columbia Law School.
The panelists are Nilson Barahona-Marriaga, a native Honduran who immigrated to the United States more than two decades ago.; Eunice Cho, JD, a senior staff attorney at the ACLU National Prison Project, where she focuses her work on challenging unconstitutional conditions in U.S. immigration detention facilities and the expansion of immigration detention; Josiah “Jody” Rich, MD, MPH, a professor of medicine and epidemiology at the Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University and a practicing infectious disease and addiction specialist at The Miriam Hospital and the Rhode Island Department of Corrections; and Sophie Terp, MD, MPH, an associate professor of clinical emergency medicine at the Keck School of Medicine at the University of Southern California (USC) and a clinical scholar at the USC Leonard D.

22] -- Witness Against Torture [email@example.com] is Remembering the Men Detained at Guantanamo on Torture Awareness Day. Join the group on Tues., June 29 at 2 PM for a co-sponsored event with Justice for Muslims Collective "Democratizing Torture: Systematic Punishment in the United States and Israel." Both the United States and Israel identify as democracies; however, each continues to practice the use of torture despite the fact that this tactic of punishment is decidedly anti-democratic. In order to whitewash their use of torture and to justify exceptions to the rule of law, they have consistently weaponized the democracy narrative as well as the false narrative that torture yields credible information. In spite of all this, we know that, as George Orwell wrote in his book 1984, “the object of torture is torture” -- the practice of torture has never been about extracting information, but rather about power, control, and the subduing of resistance.
To address and examine these issues in depth, a Guantanamo Bay torture survivor and a Palestinian survivor of Israeli torture will join the panel. Their voices will guide the conversation on the ways torture is inflicted in both the US and Israel, the narratives imposed on them throughout their torture and after, and what it will take to dismantle these apparatuses of torture.

23] – There is a Vigil to say "No Drone Research at JHU" at 33rd and N. Charles Sts. on Tuesdays from 5 to 6 PM. Contact Max at mobuszewski2001 at Comcast dot net or 410-323-1607.

24] – We Have a Do-or-Die, Time-Limited Chance to Defeat White Supremacy and Big Money. If you want equal protection so that every voter counts the same regardless of color, income, age, or neighborhood, now is the time to act. If you want freedom from the influence of big money, now is the time to act. In the next months, action by people like you can create a groundswell to pass three major bills (see details in box below). One of them (S. 1) would provide sweeping reforms to end special-interest corruption in our government. Congress must act early this summer or partisan redistricting – based on a flawed census – will have happened. The House of Representatives has the votes to pass these bills, and they can pass the Senate, too - but only if We the People let our senators know how we feel.
If these bills do not pass, action by some state legislatures will reduce the freedom to vote for targeted populations. Get Money Out – Maryland (GMOM) founded For the People – Maryland with 20 other groups to fight for these principles in the U.S. Congress. Therefore, the filibuster rule will need to change to allow these bills to pass with a simple majority.
While there are several Senators who haven’t formally committed, people in-the-know say if we can convince WV Senator Joe Manchin, the others will come along. Opponents are putting lots of money into WV, and we need to fight back. WV residents tell us that Manchin is often willing to do a 180 degree turn if he gets enough pressure. Volunteers asking his constituents to contact him could trigger the biggest reform since the Voting Rights Act of 1965. Make calls to WV residents on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays. Please sign up to call on Tues., June 29 from 5:30 to 8 PM ET and try to convince one friend to do so also! There is good training and support throughout! Go to https://www.mobilize.us/vopropros/event/389987/. CALL WEST VIRGINIANS.

26] – On Tues., June 29 from 7 to 8:30 PM ET, get with the Animal Bereavement Support Group at the Baltimore Humane Society, 1601 Nicodemus Road, Reisterstown 21136. This will continue each Tuesday, through August 3. See https://www.facebook.com/BMOREHUMANE/. The loss of an animal can be a devastating blow. Our friends are often loved as a member of our family, and we believe their passing should be treated with the same respect. RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org
27] – The Rosenberg Fund for Children is excited to announce an online event which will focus on Ethel Rosenberg's life and the campaign to exonerate her.

31] – Join a discussion on “How We End the Death Penalty” with LA County District Attorney George Gascon, Death Row Exoneree Herman Lindsey, Los Angeles Rabbi Sharon Brous, and Death Penalty Focus Board Member Stephen Rohde. They will mark the anniversary of Furman v. Georgia on Tuesday, June 29 at 9 PM ET, in a virtual panel discussion on “How We End the Death Penalty.” On June 29, 1972, the United States Supreme Court did abolish the death penalty in Furman v. Georgia when it found that existing death penalty schemes were arbitrary and inconsistent, violating the Eighth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, which prohibits cruel and unusual punishment. That ruling was overturned four years later, and the death penalty is currently imposed in 27 states. But capital punishment opponents continue their efforts to end the death penalty and our four panelists believe it is only a matter of time until we see the death penalty abolished in California and across the country.

8] – Get with The Colombian Strike: A Historical and Political Conversation on http://masspeaceaction.org/event/the-colombian-strike-a-historical-and-political-conversation/.
On April 28 of 2021, Colombians organized a massive general strike against the neoliberal regime of President Iván Duque, galvanized around his deeply regressive tax reform. The strike, however, has a longer history. Outraged by the ongoing extrajudicial killings of social leaders, enforced disappearance of peasants, continuous reports of state crimes—named in Colombia with the euphemism of false positives—and the constant intimidation that especially black and indigenous people continue to face in their territories, when seeking to protect them from state-sponsored extractivism, the people took to the streets. Indigenous people’s historical Mingas, black people’s continuous mobilization to force the state to respect their constitutional right to prior consultation, as well as the massive student movement around the MANE (Mesa Amplia Nacional Estudiantil), and the general strike of 2019, are all important antecedents to the ongoing strike of 2021.
Kwill be moderating the event. Young is a Professor of History at UMASS Amherst. is Assistant Professor of Political Science at the University of Massachusetts Boston. is Associate Professor of Political Science at UMass Amherst and faculty affiliate with the Center for Latin American, Latinx and Caribbean Studies at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst.
10] – Dr. Bill for Progressive Democrats of America [firstname.lastname@example.org] is alerting you to a Sicko Film Stars Reunion during Healthcare Emergency Town Hall on Sun., June 27 at 4 PM ET. RSVP at https://zoom.us/meeting/register/tJ0tceuhrzsvHdymeeZRwb-i7X50FJa-HMR4. Reflect on the challenge of #HealthcareJustice as was first brought to the attention of many of us back in the tumultuous early 2000s, and what #COVID19 tells us now about the even more urgent need for #MedicareForAll. Fourteen years ago in 2007, a group of Americans appeared in Michael Moore’s award winning documentary, SiCKO. Some were patients damaged by the U.S. profit driven healthcare industry, some lost people they loved to healthcare system greed, and still others worked in communities where the ravages of that greed took a terrible human toll. These were real people, real Americans who didn’t make money from their appearances, and nearly all of them continue to work in their communities to see health finally become a human right for all.
Rev. Andy Bales, Adrian Montgomery, Reggie Cervantes, and Julie Pierce-Waite will join the call for powerful reflections on their experiences and continuing efforts in the years since SiCKO. PDA National Advisory Board Chair Donna Smith will lead the SiCKO reunion panel discussion. Also guest speaker, author, and advocate Nicolas J. S. (Sandy) Davies will speak about Vaccine Internationalism.

The first six months of the Biden Administration have given us hope. Saving our planet is now a presidential priority. But there is much work to be done. When DC subsidizes fossil fuels to the tune of $15 billion every year, it pays for the destruction of people, planet, and future. And the burden of pollution from pipelines, fracking, and oil and gas projects falls disproportionately on Black, Brown, and Indigenous communities.
13] – Jim Zogby [email@example.com] is inviting you to share conversation with Rev.

This event is part of AAI's Kahlil Gibran Spirit of Humanity Leadership Summit. All month the Gibran Summit has hosted transformative conversations to help us through these challenging times and refocus our advocacy for the challenges ahead.

On July 8, 1996, as a result of an initiative led by civil society, the International Court of Justice delivered an advisory opinion affirming that the threat or use of nuclear weapons is generally illegal, and that there is an obligation to achieve global nuclear disarmament. Inspired by this historic case, World's Youth for Climate Justice, supported by the Normandy Chair for Peace, has launched a campaign to take the issue of climate change to the International Court of Justice (otherwise known as the World Court). UNFOLD ZERO encourages you to find out more about the initiative, and how you can help ensure its success. Join a webinar on Mon., June 28 at 9 AM ET, the first one of which will discuss the role of climate litigation, introduce the campaign for an ICJ case on the climate, and explore lessons learned from the historic ICJ advisory opinion on nuclear weapons.
