This weekend, Saturday Night Live celebrated the show’s 40th anniversary with performances from a slew of big name musicians, actors and comedians. However, among all those funny people, there was not one Latina cast member.

A good friend of mine once told me that he believed climate change to be “THE intersectional issue.” Considering that he came from the climate movement, I initially took the statement with a grain of salt — he seemed pretty biased.

The White House budget increases funding for immigrant detention

Earlier this week the White House announced its proposed budget for the 2015 financial year. Media coverage of the proposal has noted its focus on the middle class, help for low-income college students, and the steps it takes to protect the health of women and families.

Police violence against Black women in Brazil caught on camera

Yesterday around the United States, people took part in direct actions to reclaim Martin Luther King’s legacy from the sanitized celebration that MLK Day has become, and remind our country that Black lives matter. After closing out 2014 — a year filled with a devastating loss of Black life and an inspiring swell to fight police violence — this feels like a beautiful way to kick off the racial justice movement in 2015.

Pregnant women aren’t being arrested to protect their fetuses

Lately, articles have been circulating about the control and punishment of pregnant people for crimes like fetal homicide or assault on a fetus, an issue that we’ve been talking about here for years. In these stories, women are arrested or incarcerated for ignoring doctor’s orders, using illegal drugs while pregnant, or even for experiencing uncontrollable health conditions like miscarriage.
