Enlighten Me has been on vacation these past couple of weeks enjoying graduations and family reunions. As I get back into the swing of things, I thought i’d look back at some recent interviews that continue to have an impact on me.
Tasha Eurich, author of Insight, shows us that we are not as self aware as we think. She’ll also outline steps on how to truly see ourselves clearly. I can’t stress enough how it could probably help a lot of people in the political sphere right about now.
Also, recently The Trump administration has erected an election commission to look at voting that has garnered widespread criticism. In April, US District Court judge Nelva Gonzales Ramos ruled in Texas recently that SB 14, the voter ID Bill passed in 2011 was passed with the intent to discriminate against minority voters. This is something civil rights leaders, voting rights advocates and legal scholars have been fighting against for years. It begs the question, would this same level of advocacy be applied to other cases like this across the country.
On the program, Ezra Rosenberg, Co-Director of the Voting Rights project at the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law where he oversees all voting rights litigation will explain what this means for Texas and other voter ID laws that have popped up over the years.
It’s sunny outside and today is my birthday. What else do you expect?
I hope you enjoy this summer rewind!
