The average prison sentence of men who kill their women partners is 2 to 6 years. Women who kill their male partners are sentenced on average to 15 years. This is despite the fact that 86% of female offenders kill in self-defense, while males are most likely to kill out of possessiveness (82%), abuse (75%) and during arguments (63%). Women are eight times more likely than men to be killed by an intimate partner.

You should be angry. You must not be bitter. Bitterness is like cancer. It eats upon the host. It doesn’t do anything to the object of its displeasure. So use that anger. You write it. You paint it. You dance it. You march it. You vote it. You do everything about it. You talk it. Never stop talking it.

Since June 15, 2012 many of us who are eligible for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) have reaped the benefits of the 2 year stop-gap measure that provides safety from deportation and the ability to legally work in the US. However, the executive order excludes a huge part of our communities— our parents and community members continue to live in fear and are vulnerable to exploitative conditions at their workplace. Families continue to be separated, and 1,100 people continue to be deported by the Obama Administration everyday.

Read RAISE’s full statement on why deferred action should be expanded and join us to advocate Deferred Action for All (DAFA). Sign our petition here, today!

The F-35 Joint Strike Fighter is looking like a very costly mistake for the U.S. military.

How costly? According to an analysis by ThinkProgress, the money spent on the F-35 would be enough to buy every homeless person in the country a mansion.
