Ed Tech and the circus of unreason - how to respond post 2016 America
This article contains many links to other articles that reflect on a 2017 America with Donald Trump as President. While it invites educators to reflect on their roles, and the ways they interact, it really is an invitation to anyone concerned with the future of civil liberties, democracy, the environment, etc. The article is linked to an annotation tool called Hypothes.is, which enabled anyone to add their own comments and join the discussion. That's one of the reasons I've posted it to this section of the Tutor/Mentor web library.

Rolling Back Inclusion - updated regularly
From the web site: "The Democracy Collaborative is deeply concerned that the antipathy or outright hostility of both the current administration and the current Congressional majority to the federal infrastructure of community development will translate into irreparable harm to the low income communities, especially communities of color, who continue to struggle with the legacy of decades of disinvestment, discrimination, and dispossession. We believe—along with the rest of the community development field—that robust, effective federal action is necessary to expand the access of marginalized communities to affordable housing, good jobs, and an equitable share in America's prosperity. In order to help communities across the country—both rural and urban—speak up in a moment in which the administration has made clear its intentions to scale back or dismantle these key federal frameworks, we will be tracking the new federal attacks on inclusive community development here, along with state-level measures enabled and encouraged by the new federal context.
