Phenomenal Women: Lifting As We Climb

May 6, 2022

Power of Women | Glendale & Pasadena YWCA 25th Annual Heart & Excellence Awards

Women have been collectively chipping away at the glass ceiling and making momentous progress. As we break through, it is imperative that we reach down and lift up the women following behind us.  How do we accomplish that? And, as we work to do so, how do we make sure today’s feminism is a movement that benefits ALL women? In a time of rapid change, this talk is essential for learning how to find — and how to become —allies, in the workplace, in your activism, and in your personal life. Areva Martin inspires you with a rousing, rallying speech that invokes heroes from Maya Angelou to Justice Katanji Brown Jackson. She calls on all women to “lift as we climb,” and offers actionable tips and strategies for doing so while sharing intimate memories and lessons from her own ascent up the ladder of success.

HUNDREDS OF BLACK AND MEXICAN FAMILIES FILE RACIAL REPARATIONS CLAIM AGAINST CITY OF PALMS SPRINGS

While promoting an image of Hollywood luxury in the 1950s and 1960s, the City of Palm Springs’ racially restrictive covenants prohibited Black people from sharing that good life or living in white neighborhoods. Instead, Black and Mexican Americans could only build homes in the Section 14 area of the Agua Caliente tribe’s reservation. Then, over a 10-year span from the late 1950s through the 1960s, Palm Springs hatched a plan to demolish Section 14 for the purposes of developing it into more lucrative commercial enterprises. To gain possession of this prime downtown real estate, the city hired contractors to bulldoze the privately-owned houses, often with personal property and belongings inside, and then the city sent the Palm Springs Fire Department to burn the destruction.  Black and Mexican residents were often forced to flee Section 14 with only what they could carry.
