46] – Zach VanHouten, People for the American Way [firstname.lastname@example.org] has the perfect volunteer opportunity you can do from your couch. Help Get out the Vote in Virginia this year by signing up to write letters to voters! The upcoming statewide election in Virginia is likely to have major implications for the national midterms that are right around the corner. Often viewed as a bellwether to the national political climate, Virginia has been crucial in proving the popularity of progressive policies and the national shift towards a more progressive electorate. This year, the Republican candidate for governor is a Trump idolizer, who despite his seemingly moderate campaign pledges, has proven to be really nothing more than a wolf in sheep’s clothing. Someone who would advocate for a far-right and regressive agenda if elected - such as his opposition to gun safety reforms, opposition to common-sense COVID safety measures, and more.
Voter turnout is going to be crucial in the Virginia election and People For is proud to once again be partnering with our friends at Vote Forward for a unique letter-writing Get Out the Vote campaign. Sign up now at https://votefwd.org/pfaw to participate in the campaign through September 18! Send a personal letter encouraging them to vote in the election!
47] – On Thurs., Sept. 16 at 12:15 PM, catch Veto Players, Treaty Effectiveness, and Multilateral Nuclear Arms Control, sponsored by the Harvard Kennedy School’s Belfer Center. Hear from Stephen Herzog, Project on Managing the Atom. See https://www.belfercenter.org/event/veto-players-treaty-effectiveness-and-multilateral-nuclear-arms-control. Why do some treaties face difficult entry-into-force prospects after negotiators agree on their legal provisions? Multilateral nuclear arms control treaties, for example, often face far more contentious journeys to enter into force than their bilateral counterparts. These treaties usually indicate the number of states that must deposit ratification instruments, or may even require participation by specific states. To better understand such delays, Stephen Herzog presents a theory of treaty entry-into-force.

Four years after Hurricane Maria, Workers World Party and allies reflect on the ongoing struggle for Puerto Rican liberation. The U.S.-imposed Fiscal Control Board continues to try to impose all possible neoliberal policies of privatization on the people and island of Puerto Rico. The people have continued to fight back, most recently against LUMA Energy, the private contractor that took over operation of Puerto Rico's electrical grid on June 1. Meanwhile the people of Culebra and Vieques Islands have taken to the streets to protest the malfunctioning maritime transportation system. Their outcry for justice echoes with the chants: "We want transportation with dignity and efficiency," "The waterway is our road — it is not luxury" and "We denounce inhumanity and unite our hands."
