Storytime: The Equal Rights Amendment and Me

2022-06-28T17:38:29+00:00

Storytime: The Equal Rights Amendment and Me by Jim Mullen From 1973-75 I was an ombudsman in Jacksonville, Illinois, an exempt employee of a self-proclaimed “reform” Governor, Dan Walker. Though my “day job” was to advocate for citizens wrongly deprived of government services to which they were entitled, my “exempt” status meant the intrusion of state politics “after hours” was inescapable. The formal amendment of the US Constitution to include the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA) required ratification in 2/3rds of the 50 states. In 1974-75, the supporters of the ERA needed only a handful of states to amend the Constitution. [...]

You watch responders of all kinds drive 100 mph hour with lights and sirens blaring to the scene to help. You think this is the [...]

Acknowledgment of Recent Events

2022-06-28T17:19:37+00:00

We wanted to take a moment to acknowledge recent events by Center Staff We are shocked by the most recent mass shootings in Buffalo and Uvalde. No matter what, we cannot become accustomed to these heinous acts of violence. During the pandemic, our county and the world experienced unprecedented losses, forcing many of us into relative seclusion. Some have attributed the health crisis as a possible explanation for angry, disturbed individuals suddenly taking out their angst on unsuspecting, often defenseless persons. Because these acts are so far removed from common decency and respect for human life, it is easy, in [...]
