    What We Can Do About Hate Crime

    What We Can Do About Hate Crime

    In 2014, there was a shooting outside the Jewish Community Center in Overland Park, Kansas - a suburb of Kansas City. The gunman was a white supremacist and the former grand dragon of the Ku Klux Klan. He picked this location because he was sure he would find Jewish children preparing for a talent show.

    The gunman killed three people, none of whom were actually Jewish.

    Of the three people killed, two of them were related to Mindy Corporon. One was her 14 year-old son, Reit. The other was her father, a practicing physician, who took his grandson to the audition. Mindy was supposed to meet them there. When she arrived at the scene, her life changed forever.

    Since then, Mindy has been working to spread a message of peace and kindness that spans every religious background, but she’s also become more familiar with the rise of white supremacists. She’s trying to understand why people are doing this and to prevent others from following in their footsteps.

    For the season finale of Majority 54, here is my conversation with Mindy Corporon about turning the tide of White Nationalism.

    What is the Role of Business in Social Progress?

    What is the Role of Business in Social Progress?

    One of the best parts of doing this podcast is getting to highlight friends of mine who are doing big things or have big ideas or both. Former Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick has a history of public service, and now he’s continuing it from the private sector.

    He’s a deeply thoughtful guy and he’s really made me think differently about what expectations we should put on the business community in America. I mean, yes, as progressives we think big business should pay its fair share of taxes and should treat workers fairly, but Deval doesn’t stop there - he’s saying there’s no reason companies can’t also seek to make the world a better place too. This is something I’ve been talking about a lot in here in Kansas City, because I want to make sure the progress in KC is felt by everyone - residents and employers alike.

    Here is my conversation with my friend Deval Patrick about reinvesting in America.

    Behind The Scenes Of The Travel Ban: What Is Our Responsibility Now?

    Behind The Scenes Of The Travel Ban: What Is Our Responsibility Now?

    This episode is for everyone who has listened to this show, thought about the change they’d like to make in the world, and hesitated to take action because they either weren’t an expert or weren’t directly affected by the thing they wanted to change. We’ve been debating the Muslim ban since the 2016 campaign, and we’ve even done an episode of this show on Islamophobia, but today we wanted to tell you about the woman behind the legal fight for refugees.

    She’s not a long-time human rights attorney or a former refugee herself. In fact, when Becca Heller started the International Refugee Assistance Project, she wasn’t even a lawyer yet.

    Now that organization is helping people in over 70 countries. Becca is also one of the people who organized volunteer attorneys to assist refugees at airports when the Muslim ban first came down.

    The Muslim ban may not lead the news everyday, but the damage its doing continues, and here is my conversation with Becca about what can be done.

    Why Redistricting is the Key to Saving our Democracy

    Why Redistricting is the Key to Saving our Democracy

    Gerrymandering is the process of redrawing the districts and reviewing the power structure of voting in America, but often for less than bi-partisan means. Every ten years, the party in power works with recent census data to determine the "best" way for voters to be represented. The process is becoming a bitter power play, and the people who are fighting against it are finding incredible backing from other voters who are tired of watching their voice in our government get muted more with each passing election.

    Katie Fahey refused to accept this status quo, and so with a single Facebook post she wound up launching one of the biggest social forces fighting gerrymander-- all from her home in Michigan.
