According the NBC news, the Trump administration is launching a campaign to stop the criminalization of homosexuality around the world. This campaign comes as there are still about seventy countries that have laws criminalizing LGBTQ status or conduct. The US Ambassador of Germany- the highest-profile openly gay appointee in the Trump administration- announced the campaign that plans to end this blatant global discrimination. This campaign comes as a result of a young boy being hung in Iran.

Cultural Humility in a hosiptal setting

Women in White

During the State of the Union address on Tuesday, the women in Congress all wore white to honor past suffragists and make a statement about representation and gender equality. Congress currently has more female lawmakers than ever in the past with over 102 women serving in the House of Representatives and 25 in the Senate. In the century since women gained the right to vote, there have been big strides towards gender equality - an example being the record number of female representatives in the government.

NFL and Social Injustices

A recent story that I was following in the media is the backlash of the decision of artist and performer Travis Scott to perform at the Super Bowl LIII Pepsi halftime show. Given the myriad of issues surrounding the NFL as it pertains to social injustices including Colin Kaepernicks’ #TakeAKnee, this decision is a reoccurring theme within the sports, entertainment industries and society as a whole and an important topic that deserves attention.

Scabies outbreak in prison

I find an article concerning an outbreak of a skin disease in a prison a few towns over in Michigan. This article discusses a rare skin disease known as scabies, that has spread throughout a women's prison in Pittsfield Township, Michigan. This disease has been spreading throughout the woman in the prison for months now, and finally the prison is beginning to take measures to treat these women. Nearly 200 prisoners were reported to have this mysterious rash in November of 2018, up from 50 when it was originally reported back in March.
