Women of Color and Mental Health: From Silence to Solutions for Success and Resilience

Women of color suffer disproportionately from the kinds of adverse life experiences that can lead to depression, anxiety disorders, and toxic levels of chronic stress. This vast disparity reflects major gaps in both screening and treatment for mental health issues among women of different racial and ethnic backgrounds. Please join the Center for American Progress for a panel discussion on how racism, cultural stereotypes, economic insecurity, gender discrimination, stigma, and shame all impact the mental health of women of color, preventing them from getting the support and treatment they deserve.

2017: The Year the Disability Community Reshaped Progressive Politics

Americans with disabilities have always been on the front lines of the fight for civil rights and progressive causes, from education and health care to employment, transportation, and other issues. In an age in which President Donald Trump and his conservative allies have operated a virtual whack-a-mole game rotating attacks on marginalized communities, much can be garnered in the way of promising practices, solidarity, and perseverance in the work of the disability rights movement. Please join the Center for American Progress for a discussion about what progressives can learn from the disability rights movement—and how it can strengthen the work of its sibling movements.

Protecting the Youngest Americans: What’s at Stake for Infants and Toddlers in the Budget Fight

President Donald Trump and his conservative allies have proposed budgets that seek to deeply cut or eliminate many of the programs that cover millions of children’s most basic needs—all to provide tax cuts for the wealthy. While infants and toddlers are uniquely vulnerable to these proposed cuts, they have been largely left out of the budget conversation. Please join the Center for American Progress, Rep. Katherine Clark (D-MA), and a panel of experts and parent advocates to discuss what is at stake for young children across the country if programs that invest in their healthy development are cut.

Not a Crime to Be Poor: The Criminalization of Poverty in America

The phenomenon of low-income individuals being charged fines and fees – and thrown in jail if they can’t afford to pay – first drew serious national attention in Ferguson, Missouri, following the tragic death of Michael Brown in 2015. However, as lawyer Peter Edelman explores in his new book, Not a Crime to Be Poor: The Criminalization of Poverty in America, Ferguson was just the tip of the iceberg. In 43 states, people can be charged for exercising their constitutional right to a public defender. 44 states charge individuals for the costs of their own probation or parole. Join the Center for American Progress for a conversation with Peter Edelman about the many ways that being poor is a crime in America and how we can change that.
