In this episode, our hosts Mahroh Jahangiri and Elizabeth Ross speak with our guest Angel Sanchez to discuss his recent article “In Spite of Prison” as well as developments in the prison abolition movement more broadly. This episode also features an interview with hosts Rund Khayyat and Melanie Fontes and guest Dr. Cynthia Boyer on her recent article, “Neoliberalism and the Death Penalty at the Intersection of Law, Politics, and Race.”
In Masterpiece v. Colorado, Justice Gorsuch argues there is no principled way, on First Amendment grounds, to distinguish refusing to make a cake for a same-sex wedding versus refusing to make a cake with anti-LGBT words and symbols.
I argue that this conclusion is mistaken. https://t.co/TF7zhkuYIo
“[T]he questions about how the Supreme Court will balance LGBT civil rights and religious freedom rights in cases like this remained unanswered.”
@mark_satta with a superb analysis of Justice Gorsuch’s logical fallacy in his Masterpiece concurrence.
My wife just published her first scholarly article, "Paper Courts & Parental Rights: Balancing Access, Agency, and Due Process," in the @HarvardCRCL. I'm proud the world can see her brilliance 🙂
New essay in @HarvardCRCL: Safety, friendship, and dreams should be central to 21st c. racial justice agenda; begins with "empirical poetry" drawing from interview participants' narratives. Eager for feedback... https://t.co/0SuugwCH1U
Thoughtful piece co-authored by Alisha Jarwala, an alum of @relmanlaw. Breaking new ground. Watch out for this new generation of civil rights warriors! https://t.co/11pghTAtJu
This is an excellent piece about an important problem that too few people know about. Well worth the read. https://t.co/QCXdqajl50
Chronic nuisance ordinances evict people for being people of color, survivors, disabled, or some combination of all three. That’s why Alisha and I argue that they violate the Fair Housing Act, the ADA, and the Constitution. You can read it for free here: https://t.co/pNpZlTU1KS
Predictably, nuisance ordinances impact people of color — for example, @NYCLU found they were enforced almost 5x as much in the parts of the city with the most people of color. @just_shelter found that CNOs were enforced 2.5x as often in predominantly black parts of Milwaukee.
