Trans action demands social justice

first_imgTrans Day of Action in New York on June 28.The 9th Annual Trans Day of Action took place in New York City on June 28, called by TransJustice, a political group created by and for trans and gender non-conforming people of color (TGNC POC). Endorsed by more than 100 organizations, the rally and march, which began at the Christopher Street Piers, celebrated the long history of political activism of trans and gender non-conforming people and also addressed the growing poverty and rise of anti-trans bashings, especially toward women.New York police routinely arrest and charge trans people with prostitution, based on their gender identity. Another standard practice of the New York Police Department has been to single out, arrest and charge trans women and lesbian, gay, bi, trans and queer youth with prostitution just for having three or more condoms on them.Imani HenryMore than 600 people came out on a blistering hot day for the midday rally, where they were greeted by Elliott Fukui, TransJustice coordinator, and Imani Henry, a TransJustice founding member. The groups represented on the program included Streetwise and Safe, Audre Lorde Project, FIERCE, TransLatina, Make the Road New York and the Sylvia Rivera Law Project. All remarks were translated into Spanish and English.Imani Henry told Workers World, “People have been conditioned to think of trans people as only being concerned about our own rights or bodies. That Trans Day of Action is a pro-immigrant rights, anti-war march calling for access to jobs, housing, health care and education for all New Yorkers is significant.”The march through Greenwich Village was very spirited and militant, withchants of “What do we want? TransJustice! When do we want it? Now!” and “Racist, sexist, anti-gay, NYPD go away!”Elliott FukuiThe marchers went past the Stonewall Inn, site of the 1969 Stonewall Rebellion which was led by trans youth of color who battled police violence for several days. This uprising helped to usher in the modern-day LGBTQ liberation movement, including the annual Pride marches around the country.Go to workers.org to read the 10 points of unity of TransJustice, which include an end to the U.S. “war on terror” and the prison-industrial complex as well as full legalization of all immigrants.TransJustice is part of the Audre Lorde Project, a lesbian, gay, bisexual, two spirit, trans and gender non-conforming people of color community organizing center, focusing on the New York City area.WW photos: Monica MooreheadFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

What’s on the horizon for credit unions and credit cards?

first_imgLoyalty programs are undergoing changes on all fronts. American Express announced a new mobile app that will allow membership rewards to be used at the POS, presumably at a devalued exchange rate. Starbucks changed their long-standing rewards program by issuing “stars” based on dollar spend, rather than the number of transactions, causing some consternation among Frappuccino and Oprah Chai aficionados. The way credit and debit card issuers who offer loyalty programs view rewards is also coming under scrutiny.Loyalty programs offered by issuers have existed since the 1980’s, with the primary goal to keep one issuer’s card at the “top of wallet” over other cards. Every time you reach in your wallet, you have a choice of which card to use for that transaction – your credit union wants you to choose their cards, and offering points per dollar spent, which can later be used to purchase gifts, travel, or in some cases, cash back, is the incentive offered to you to use their card.However, mobile apps, Apple/Samsung/Android Pay, and online wallets, have radically changed the dynamics or staying “top of wallet”, since you no longer pull out your physical wallet and make a choice at the POS. Instead, you enter card credentials when you first set up your wallet, and the first card you load becomes the default. The incentive to stay “top of wallet” needs to change to incentive to stay “top of phone”, with the overall goal still the same – choose one issuer’s card over another when making a transaction.Loyalty programs have always been about incenting consumer behavior. Credit unions need to rethink what behaviors they are trying to incent. For example, offering points for loading a card into Apple Pay is a start, but that doesn’t mean that the card is now the default. Offering bonus points for three transactions over $25 is a more assured way to cause the behavior change – hopefully the cardholder has made the credit union card the new default. continue reading » 27SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

3,000 runners from 45 countries feature 12th Sarajevo Half Marathon

first_imgSARAJEVO, Sept. 16 (Xinhua) — The 12th Sarajevo Sberbank Half Marathon gathered some 3,000 runners from 45 countries and regions to Bosnia and Herzegovina’s (BiH) capital of Sarajevo on Sunday.The event was opened in the morning hours by Minister of Culture and Sports of Sarajevo Canton Mirvad Kuric, who emphasized that it is of great importance for the citizens of Sarajevo to support these kinds of events.In the 21.1 kilometers-long race, the first place in men’s category was taken by Kenyan Kipruto Stenli (1:07:11), second by Turkish Aykut Tesdemir (1:07:57), and the third place by Bulgarian Ivo Balabanov (1:08:00).On the women’s side, Serbian Olivera Jeftic took the first place (1:14:41), the second was taken by Croatian Bojana Bijeljac (1:16:38), Moldavian Oleseca Smobljenko came in third (1:16:42).The director of Marathon Sarajevo Association Erol Mujanovic pointed out in an interview for Xinhua on two records that were broken by this year’s event: the record number of participants and the record number of countries and regions that they come from.“The share of women participants this year was 33 percent, which is a record one, which means that every third person who ran the marathon was women,” Mujanovic said, adding that twelve years ago, that number was 5 to 8 percent.Almir Panjeta, one of the participants, pointed out that this year’s Sarajevo Half Marathon is his second one.“I can only say that the run was better than I expected, and on races like this one, it is a victory for amateurs to run the race to the end, socialize and have good fun,” Panjeta said.“The organization is great, the atmosphere as well, a great number of participants contributed to running being a true satisfaction,” Panjeta concluded.Similar to last year, this year’s half marathon saw a slight increase in the number of women participating. Lejla Sabic, one of the women participants, pointed out on the need for women to invest more in their health and run as many races as possible.“In BiH, women are not very active, they work a lot, and events like this are of a tremendous importance for their health. I ran some 10 marathons since 2007 worldwide, and this is my second one here,” Sabic said.“For the first time, more than 50 percent of the participants are from BiH, which indicates a quality long-term work on massification of this sport in BiH,” director of Marathon SarajevoAssociation Erol Mujanovic said.In parallel with half marathon, a “G-Drive half marathon” for teams and a light race “Novo Nordisk Fun Run” for citizens who are not professionals were held.Started in 2006, the Sarajevo Half Marathon aims to empower individuals and society, to promote healthy lifestyles through sport in a positive and friendly environment, and to encourage overcoming personal boundaries in a supportive atmosphere.last_img read more
