Congratulations to all of the graduates of the Class of 2019, with special recognition to my NUFPs, graduate assistants, graduate interns, mentees, cultural community leaders and Culture Squad Alumni. Though I didn’t make it to every ceremony, I am so very proud of each of you. This time of year is always so very bittersweet; i’m happy to see you achieve your goals but also so very sad to see you leave. Until we meet again... 🤗🥰😘. #WeAreBinghamton #SquadUp #ForTheCulture #Bearcats4Life
Today’s history lesson courtesy of @mspackyetti and @politico... IT WAS NEVER ABOUT MORTALITY! #Repost @mspackyetti: this White House and conservative state governments across the country have been playing the long game: ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 1. Quietly change the courts at every level, including the Supreme Court, to secure conservative majorities. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 2. Pursue state bans on abortion through multiple strategies. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 3. Use the momentum and precedent to challenge Roe v. Wade altogether. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ THIS IS NOT ABOUT MORALITY. IT IS ABOUT POWER. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Check it: the “religious right” essentially chose abortion as the fight because it could be used as a unifying political issue between Catholics and Protestants. White evangelicals had lost trying to defend segregation, and needed a new bandwagon. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ They were NOT up in arms when Roe became law. It was SIX years later when they decided to “care,” which only meant to make a power play. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Even if you don’t care about that, know this: abortion bans DO NOT end abortions. They simply make them extremely dangerous and lethal for the women who have to go to back allies to have them. One in Four American women will have an abortion. Do you want her to be safe, or nah? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If that STILL doesn’t matter to you, how about this: Women are PEOPLE. We deserve control over our bodies, just like you. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Swipe and visit the links in my stories/ morning news highlights to get the real history of the politics of abortion in America and find out what YOU CAN DO to fight this back. Info on last two slides is from an article by Mia Brett. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Outrage is meaningless if it doesn’t lead to action. ❤️✊🏾

“A leader takes people where they want to go. A great leader takes people where they don’t necessarily want to go, but ought to be.” —#RosalynnCarter. • It’s always a joy catching up with alumni and spending time with the protégés during @jump_nation’s JUMP Weekend. But running into @mr_vico_ and his students, while also rocking my @hollateamusa gear today, gave me so much joy. • Vic, you have been a great leader in the making since entering Binghamton during BEP and as a PC, and you are greater still. Watching you now on the other side excelling as a mentor, chaperone, teacher, coach was such an honor. Keep on making us proud! #Bearcats4Life #WeAreBinghamton #ForTheCulture
