  • Title: Janice Jordan Platform
    Descriptive info: POLITICAL AND SOCIAL ISSUES.. ARTS CULTURE.. The historic and culturally rich murals of Chicano Park are reflections of a proud community.. All communities in San Diego should have access to public supported art projects.. Youth should be encouraged to express their emotions through art, music, and performance.. Instead of punishing our youth for graffiti and wheat pasting, we must offer them the opportunity to create in a safe atmosphere.. As a community activist, I support City and State funding to expand youth art projects, including programs at the Sherman Heights Community Center, the WorldBeat Center in Balboa Park and the Boys and Girls Clubs.. Children from all communities should be exposed and given the opportunity to participate in stage and music performance.. Community-artist controlled programs can instill high self-esteem and a positive outlook for personal growth.. Small neighborhood art and music festivals bring families and communities together in a large city that, at times, can be overwhelming.. Creativity should not be stifled and everyone's attempts at artistic expression should be recognized and respected.. ALTERNATIVE HEALTH AND SOCIAL PROGRAMS.. I support the legalization of marijuana and the decriminalization of drugs and respect the work of community groups such as Shelter From The Storm and NORML.. Drug and alcohol addictions are diseases, and should be treated with rehabilitation, and not incarceration.. Our city should be able to provide ample short and long term, out and inpatient programs for those who need and want it.. The D.. A.. R.. E.. program that is present in our public schools is taught by law enforcement officers who are usually ill-equipped and unaware of the dynamics of the disease.. The stereotyping of gang members by D.. officers is not a responsible social program for our children; it only promotes racism.. Programs covering drug and alcohol addiction should be taught by counselors in recovery.. Since 1994, I have had experience working with the clean needle exchange movement, and support the efforts of organizations such as Act Up.. Study after study illustrates how clean needle exchange programs do not promote drug abuse, and actually deter the spread of HIV.. The War on Drugs is a failure; how can we justify a declaration of war on our own people in our communities? It is time for local officials to accept responsibility for the social welfare of all people in our community.. The recent City Council approval of a one year trial of the needle exchange program in San Diego is to be commended.. However, I do question the validity of documenting drug users as a means of implementing the program.. The program should be anonymous and free from law enforcement retaliation.. COST OF LIVING: LIVABLE WAGE (UNION),.. LOW COST HOUSING RENT CONTROL.. The utility regulation that San Diego once had was a form of socialism that protected consumers from corporate and capital gains abuses.. The impact of deregulation has disproportionately affected working class families and small businesses, and most consumers now realize the importance of government regulation of utility services.. I support state owned and regulated utility services, such as those in the city of Los Angeles.. The City Council should be concerned that all people have the opportunity to live comfortably.. Many real wages are not keeping up with the cost of living.. In my short lifetime, I have observed rent and mortgage payments jump from a monthly cost of 33% to 75% of a personal gross income.. How is a family of two, three, or four to survive on $6.. 25/hour, when rent is between $500 and $700 a month? Recent national reports indicate that in order to rent a modest apartment, wages must start at $13.. 25/hour; this figure is over twice the State's minimum wage! The gentrification and forced evictions of communities in Sherman Heights, Logan Heights, and Golden Hill are displacing many families and creating an epidemic of homeless and houseless mothers and children.. The recent evictions of families in the outlining areas of the proposed Ballpark area is a disgrace and a human rights violation.. All workers should have a right to organize and unionize in their workplace without threats of job termination.. Customer, domestic, and service oriented industries have historically disregarded benefits and livable wages for their workers.. I supported the Janitor's strike two years ago, and I continue to honor the boycott of the Union-Tribune as called for by its Pressroom Workers.. The  ...   to non-profit and grassroots organizations serving women from all walks of life.. Serving the dynamics of all of our neighborhoods, short and long term programs that assist battered women and their children must be created and expanded to all parts of the city.. LAW ENFORCEMENT BRUTALITY.. Racial profiling is a national epidemic.. Independent agencies are needed to monitor the policies and practices of law enforcement officers.. Community policing and local hiring is essential.. Many officers hired and designated in San Diego's communities are from outside areas, and are unfamiliar and uninformed to the needs, cultures, traditions and languages in our diverse neighborhoods.. The recent shooting deaths of Jose Luis Ramirez, Sonserra Holloway, William Miller, Mario Merino and Demetrius Dubose by San Diego Police officers are examples of institutionalized racism and legal murder.. In all cases, the officers involved in the shootings were neither reprimanded nor held accountable for their actions.. I believe that the administrations of the District Attorney's office, City Manager and Police Department can not effectively do their jobs.. Many of these departments get their paychecks from the same payroll office, and will not risk alienating themselves from their coworkers.. Some type of checks and balances must be put in place so that neighborhoods and communities feeling the wrath of police abuse have an opportunity to seek fair and equal access to justice.. The families of police shootings, Border Patrol killings, and harassment deserve relief from the Victim's Assistance Program, accessible and timely information from involved agencies, and adequate and equal legal representation.. Currently, the Citizen's Review Board is appointed by the City of San Diego.. The police advisory boards representing the African-American, Latino, and Gay and Lesbian communities are also appointed , and members may choose to remain anonymous to the community they serve.. This favoritism and code of silence alienates individuals who are directly affected by police abuse and profiling.. Committee members should be elected to their positions with open meetings accessible to all members of the community.. Terry Hanks, Chair of the Committee Against Police Brutality, successfully spearheaded a campaign collecting signatures for an Elected Police Review Board Initiative for the General Election in November 2002.. However, the city attorney has found the initiative to be invalid.. Mr.. Hanks and his supporters are participating in a joint task force with members of the National City Council to find a solution for all concerned parties.. I support their efforts and encourage all concerned individuals to participate in this campaign.. I advocate that an independently elected police review board (such as the one in San Jose, CA) is necessary in a culturally and ethnically diverse city as San Diego.. PEACE AND SOCIAL JUSTICE ISSUES.. Discrimination based on race, class, sexual orientation, religious beliefs, and country of origin is unacceptable in both the private and public spheres.. Local, state, and federal procedures and policies must protect, guarantee shelter, food, and clothing to all people living and working in the United States.. San Diego sits on the busiest international pedestrian traffic border in the world! It is up to all of us to respect and work with our sisters and brothers that live in Mexico.. It is also our responsibility to ensure that all children have the opportunity to get the best education possible, provided that we prioritize education over incarceration.. All women and men have the right to marry whom they chose, and women have the right to decide what is best for their bodies and their lives.. Every individual has the right to worship as they so please as long as their beliefs are not forced upon others.. And, every woman, child, and man deserves full health and dental coverage.. We are one of the richest countries in the world and the only industrialized nation that does not have Universal Health Care!.. Since the attacks on September 11, 2001 the cry for revenge has been permeating from the mouths of government officials.. Participation in the killing of others in the name of patriotism is perpetuating murderous criminal behavior.. I commend the lone dissenting voice of Representative Barbara Lee who condemned the criminal acts of September 11th, but understood that bombing another nation will only kill more innocent people.. Our government officials must ask why this happened; it is only then, through analysis and dialogue, can we make sure it will never happen again.. REGISTER AND VOTE PEACE AND FREEDOM PARTY!..

    Descriptive info: 17 APRIL 2006.. SUPPORTERS OF JUSTICE EVERYWHERE.. This morning I received the news that Professor Pat Washington was denied her appeal in her case against San Diego State University.. The fact that her case has gone this far exposes the institutionalized racism that continues to exist in the underbelly of government systems and is as infectious as the winter flu bug.. What happened?.. In 1996 Professor Pat Washington was hired by San Diego State University's (SDSU) Women's Studies Department.. The Women's Studies Department at SDSU is the oldest in the nation.. Created in 1970, it was seen as a leader in feminist theory and academics.. Pat Washington was the first African-American to be hired on a tenure track in the Women's Studies Department, begging the question, Why would a progressive discipline take so long to hire a black woman?.. I am a graduate of both the Women's Studies Department and the Africana Studies Department with minors in both Religious and American Indian Studies.. From this perspective, I believe I can discuss progressive academic disciplines as well as anyone.. In 1997, I enrolled at SDSU and declared Women's Studies as my first major.. However, my inherent radical views were never welcomed on campus by the Women's Studies Department.. For instance, when I ran against another woman for Congress in 1998, I was somehow cast as betraying the cause of Women's Studies.. In fact, during a Women's Studies luncheon, Professor Bonnie Zimmerman snapped at me, Why would you do that [i.. e.. , run against another woman]? I replied with something like, Just because she's a woman doesn't necessarily mean she represents a fresh female point of view.. I went on to cite this particular opponent s support for current law enforcement practices and her pro-death penalty stance.. Professor Zimmerman's testiness continued with me even when--as one of her students--I looked to her for assistance on one of her classroom assignments.. I was confused about the content of the reading assignment, and she grabbed the book out of my hands from across her desk and snapped, Oh what is it Janice? I never asked her for assistance again.. Professor Pat Washington was chosen as the Most Influential Faculty Member by the Outstanding Graduating Senior three years in a row.. Professor Washington was also chosen Most Influential Faculty Member for two years in a row by winners of the Quest for the Best award, which recognizes both student activism and academic excellence.. In addition, Professor Washington continually met the publishing requirements for tenure, even though the Women's Studies Department repeatedly increased these requirements every time Professor Washington met them.. It s inconceivable to me that the courts could not see the use of shifting standards as racial discrimination especially since Professor Washington was subjected to three different sets of criteria in a 5-year span,and she was the only person in her department this happened to.. At the time of my graduation, Professor Washington's struggle to keep her position at San Diego State University was in full swing.. Sit-ins, teach-ins and rallies were taking place on campus.. The division of students was interesting; Women's Studies Undergraduate students, Africana Studies students and Chicano Studies students were pitted against Graduate students from the Women's Studies Department.. Of course there were cross-overs; however, to see the students from different disciplines supporting Professor Washington's cause was powerful.. The Department Chair of Women's Studies, Susan Cayleff attempted to open up dialogue in her evening class the following day about the recent sit-in.. I raised my hand and shared an experience I had a few years earlier with a white female Women's Studies Professor.. She would call me at home, drunk, and late at night.. When I questioned her about the disparate treatment of Professors by the Department, Professor Cayleff told me that it was handled.. After sharing that story, a fellow classmate shared with me that the same white female Professor used to call her at 2:00 am--drunk! Professor Pat Washington is trying to liberate minds and is being punished for it! I still don't get it.. I support Professor Pat Washington, and quite frankly I am disappointed in the Women's Studies Department at SDSU.. Quite often I am ashamed that I received my diploma in this discipline from this department.. However, there were a few other great instructors in the department that influenced and guided me on my journey of higher education.. Supporters of Justice! Look at the hiring and firing practices of SDSU! Look at the racial and gender discrimination cases filed against this institution! Look at the people making the judicial decisions about discrimination! Power and privilege is guiding the outcome of Professor Washington's case.. I had hoped for better.. I had hoped for a democratic process that weighted the balance toward justice, equality, and fairness and against the intolerance and corruption of bureaucrats and bullies who could care less about creating a fair, just, and equitable society.. The reality and the shame of it all is this: future graduates of the Women's Studies Department are the ones losing out by not having a chance to take a class from a professor like Pat Washington.. In Peace,.. Janice Jordan.. Women's Studies and Africana Studies 2001 Graduate.. Peace Freedom Party Gubernatorial Candidate-California 2006.. ------------------------------------------------------------------.. 15 APRIL 2006.. MAY 1ST IS INTERNATIONAL WORKER'S DAY!.. The political history of May 1st (aka May Day) originates in 1880's United States during a time of labor organizing and worker rebellion.. A six to seven day work week and 10 to 12 hour work day was the norm for the working-class making the employment environment miserable and often dangerous for workers.. Organizing for an 8-hour work day, labor unions in Chicago called for a strike on May 1st 1886 demanding safer working conditions and shorter working days.. On May 3rd, a fight broke out on a picket line near a Chicago machine plant, the police attacked the strikers killing two of them and wounding others.. The next day on May 4th, a rally was called by anarchists condemning the police killings and supporting the working-class struggle.. What happened at the rally has been a point of contention for over one hundred years.. The rally at Haymarket Square began peaceful, however as the Chicago police began to dispurse the crowd, a bomb exploded killing eight officers.. Although the person who planted the bomb was never identified, labor leaders, socialists and other political radicals were harassed, and the State Attorney charged eight men with conspiracy.. Four men were hanged, one committed suicide while awaiting the death sentence, and the other three ended up getting prison sentences.. The three remaining men were pardoned in 1893 by the Illinois Governor.. Honored around the world, May Day is a day of celebration, demonstration, reflection and challenge.. Every year, the San Diego Peace and Freedom Party has recognized this historical day by organizing film showings, forums and political meetings.. This year immigrant rights activists have called for a boycott of businesses and a day of absence from both work and school.. I applaud and unconditionally support this boycott and I urge everyone who considers themself a human rights activist, a peacemaker or an agent of change to support this call of action.. Strength and solidarity  ...   of deaths worldwide; from Hiroshima, to El Salvador, to Iraq, U.. foreign policy has literally destroyed cultures, governments, and people.. The United States' new war is the new crusades.. Although Bush and Colin Powell state that this is not an attack on Islam or Muslims, many people living on U.. soil have read between the lines and follow the media's negative images of brown-skinned people in turbans and hijabs and have declared their own Holy War.. Hiding behind the patriotic cry of I'm American , and In God We Trust , many revenge seekers have attacked and killed Muslims and Sikhs, defaced and destroyed mosques, and are willing to give up some of their Constitutional Rights in the name of Freedom.. In San Diego, the Sunni Mosque in Clairemont has been attacked and the Iman threatened; in Mira Mesa, a Sikh woman was stabbed in the head; and in City Heights, a Somalian Muslim couple was attacked.. These are not the acts of a civilized society, but of a barbaric nation.. We are all responsible the existence of such hatred, whether it is the destruction of the World Trade Center, or the stabbing of a brown-skinned woman sitting in her car.. Bombing Afghanistan will create only more hate and destroy more innocent lives.. All people of good conscience must ask why this happened; it is only when we seek out the truth can we be sure this will never happen again.. anywhere.. The perpetrators of the September 11th attacks should be held accountable for their actions in the International Tribunal Courts.. Dialogue, not destruction, is the security we can offer our children for their future.. The hate that was acted out on September 11th didn't happen overnight; healing will take time and now is the time to begin.. Please support the efforts of the San Diego Peace and Justice Coalition.. Through dialogue and outreach, the coalition seeks to halt military action in response to the September 11th attacks.. Meetings are held every Monday night at 7:00 PM at the Church of the Brethren, on Westgate Place off of Home Avenue.. For more information, please contact the Peace Resource Center at 619.. 263.. 9301.. 02 JUNE 2001.. RE: THE POLICE SHOOTING DEATH OF MARIO MERINO.. CONTACT: 619.. The San Diego Chapter of the Peace and Freedom Party mourns the loss of Mario Merino.. Merino was shot and killed by an officer of the San Diego Police Department in the early morning hours on highway 805 on Thursday the 24th of May.. The circumstances surrounding the death of Mr.. Merino remain a mystery, and many questions remained unanswered.. This is the second shooting death by this officer in a three-month period.. Merino's brother was the secretary for the Peace and Freedom Party in San Diego, and the Peace and Freedom Party comrades are keeping Mr.. Merino's family in their thoughts.. We are waiting for the medical examiner's report and police report on Mr.. Merino's death.. Please continue to check this website on a weekly basis for updated information.. If you would like to help the Merino family in their time of need, please call the number listed above.. Thank you.. 21 MAY 2001.. RE: SOUTH STATE CHAIR MIRIAM CLARK ESCORTED OUT OF CITY COUNCIL MEETING.. 444.. 3256.. Today at the San Diego City Council Meeting in downtown San Diego, Peace and Freedom Party's South State Chair Miriam Clark was escorted out of the Council Chambers.. Raza Rights, The Committee Against Police Brutality, and members of the Peace and Freedom Party attended the City Council meeting to discuss the issue of police brutality that has been plaguing our city for years.. During the opening ceremony of the meeting, a local reverend was leading the public group in prayer, when Ms.. Clark loudly questioned the legality of prayer in a government building.. She also questioned the hypocrisy of the City Council members portraying themselves as a respectful and God loving group when they aren't willing to acknowledge the slaughter and carnage affecting the communities they represent.. Mayor Murphy called for the police and Ms.. Clark was removed from the room.. Supporters began chanting, Let her speak.. During the public testimony, Raza Rights representative Christian Ramirez told the City Council members that he brought victims of police abuse to the meeting and invited them to share the microphone with him.. At least 25 people joined Mr.. Ramirez at the microphone.. Members of the Peace and Freedom Party of San Diego challenge the unjust treatment of Ms.. Clark; the separation or church and state is necessary in a country and city as diverse as San Diego.. We also question the blatant police brutality which infects our communities with distrust, fear and murder; why are City Council members, the Police Chief and the Police Review Board ignoring the concerns of the families of individuals who were killed and murdered by officers of the San Diego Police Department?.. This summer, the Peace and Freedom Party of San Diego is spearheading an initiative drive calling for a democratically elected police review board to be activated in San Diego.. If you would like to get involved in this necessary campaign, please contact Carl or Zola Muhammad at 619.. Thank you very much!.. 20 MAY 2001.. RE: SUPPORT THE GRANT HILL TWO - UPDATE.. 295.. 4403.. The first Grant Hill Park Festival took place on Sunday, March 18th, with hundreds of children and youths participating in the Children's Mural Project, enjoying the temporary skate board park, and listening to the sounds of local DJs.. There is no skate board park in District 8 in the City of San Diego, leaving youths no alternative but to take to the streets to ride their skateboards.. District 8 is one of the poorest districts in the City, and is frequently used as a toxic waste dump and industrial storage area.. The organizers of the Festival distributed information to the community, supporting the renaming of 25th Street and Crosby Street to Cesar Chavez Boulevard.. The Grant Hill Festival was a great success in bringing the community together, despite harassment from the San Diego Police Department throughout the day.. An ongoing community concern is the reinstallation of the restrooms in Grant Hill Park that were taken out years ago by the City of San Diego.. During an impromptu act of civil disobedience, as youths began painting the park's utility room with a message to the City: WE WANT OUR BATHROOMS BACK , two sisters from the Peace and Freedom Party were cited for vandalism.. Their arraignment has been rescheduled for Tuesday the 29th of May at 8:30am in the misdemeanor arraignment court at 220 West Broadway in downtown San Diego.. The two women are planning to take their case to trial.. The Grant Hill Two appreciates the support of San Diego City College's MEChA, the Freedom Socialist Party, president of the Associated Student Body of City College Mr.. Cooper, the Leonard Peltier Defense Committee, the Native American Rights Network, Mosque Number 8 of San Diego, and, of course, the Peace and Freedom Party for their solidarity in the struggle for bathrooms! If you would like to support the Grant Hill Two and the reinstallation of the restrooms please call the numbers listed above..
