The global pandemic has had a significant effect on the livelihood and wellbeing of workers in the nightlife industry in New York City. When the industry shut down abruptly due to COVID-19, many workers experienced sudden unemployment, loss of income and community, exposure to illness and grief. Throughout the last 12 months, they have been on the frontlines to the city’s re-opening as public health protocols allowed some businesses to re-open. These constant changes and demands on the industry have led workers to experience a collective trauma, which can aggravate or lead to new mental health challenges. Now, workers are charged with bringing back the city’s thriving nightlife, but they may bring with them lingering and new mental health concerns. How can we promote the mental health of workers in an industry that underpins our local economy by giving space to connection and creativity? NYC Mayor’s Office New York News
One by one, school districts across the country are being overcome by a racist madness, and we are doing everything we can to expose this leftist totalitarian assault on children and teachers. The latest horror story occurs in Massachusetts. We received 111 pages of records from Wellesley Public Schools in Massachusetts which confirm the use of “affinity spaces” that divide students and staff based on race as a priority and objective of the school district’s “diversity, equity and inclusion” plan. The school district also admitted that between September 1, 2020 and May 17, 2021, it created “five distinct” segregated spaces. We obtained the records after filing a May 17 Massachusetts Public Records Law request for records concerning the number of affinity spaces, the policies regarding their creation and use, the topics discussed, and any analysis of whether affinity spaces that exclude certain races are consistent with state and federal law, which would include the 14th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, the MA Equal Rights Amendment and/or the MA School Attendance Law. The Wellesley Public School records include a document detailing the school district’s “Equity Strategic Plan 2020-2025,” which includes a “District Equity by Design” plan with the stated goal of amplifying student voices by providing “opportunities for affinity spaces for students with shared identity.” https://www.judicialwatch.org
