8:30 am
where there you go, by the statement should have been, we are going to make the, for the people act and the dog with one rights act, a priority of this administration. and not sleep until it's actually pass. that's what the people of america me, that's what african americans need and that's where it is going for. so yes, the supreme court has severely got it again, the voting rights act. and it leads to other ramifications of other laws that may be challenged later on. such as eliminating sunday voting or doing other ballot restricting type of measures. so a less we have federal oversight altogether with h r one h r for the state, especially the minorities in the states are going to have problems with minorities voting. and the supreme court is saying that is just okay, so really what we should be looking at again, elections matter. a very conservative supreme court came up with this with very conservative rhetoric about voter fraud being
8:31 am
a priority within these type of situations where there's still no voter fraud that's been found. so a less we actually do something about this spring court and getting federal legislation to oversee the states. it's going to get worse. not better. and chris, i think that there is a lot of agreement, especially from democrats and those who are fighting the civil rights pillar at this point to get voting rights access for minorities across the country. with that being said, though, what is the important tier of the filibuster? and we've had you on before, and we've talked about this in depth for a little bit. but when we talk about the job with voting rights, that we talk about the, for the people act, the vote just aren't bear with that. how important is it to get rid of the filibuster, or indeed create some type of opening to overwrite it, in this case, to ensure that voting rights are protected. right, you know, i know, you know, the issue and i know your audience knows the issue. i will always go and cast this at the votes. are there are 50 plus the vice president who said that we can pass it
8:32 am
. that's in the united states constitution was not in the united states constitution is what you said filibuster. and that is the problem that we're facing media is right now. law that we're set up to specifically deny black people the right to vote and had been used in different tools or any way. but it comes back again to black. it would be a full americans in this country. it is still being used today in that way. and we need to do away with it. so what you said in your opening, people like you are suffering from things that have been done in the past 2 again. stop, you are making it harder for you to vote. and chris, i don't have to tell you this, i know that you understand the all politics is local. a lot of what we're seeing in this case, just like what we saw in the generations prior to us and our grandparents actually had to fight through our actions. they've been taken to the state level states themselves or creating these voting impediments. what does that say to voters within the states themselves about what they need to do to ensure that more states
8:33 am
don't pick, don't pick up these types of restricting restrictive voter law. see now that's where we are gone. so now you have clearance from the supreme court saying, oh well, that state's interest in preventing voter fraud outweighs whatever overall disparate impact the law has. so justice a leader is basically going and telling other state legislatures, especially conservative legislators. it's okay that you disenfranchised why? because it's okay that you make it harder for people to vote altogether because you have a special interest in preventing voter fraud when the frog really comes into disenfranchising by people altogether. we know that local legislators have already introduced these waters suppression bills. some a pass in some states like georgia, some of just the introducing others. so in 2022, during the mid term elections,
8:34 am
you can honestly expect a lot more of all the suppression tactics in law's being have altogether on the local level. people just seem to be aware, they need to know how to get around these voting laws. and again, i have a lot more job security because this country continues to implement in a whole graces policy. and chris, as you alluded to a little bit earlier, the in the supreme court, this decision is a very awful decision, but it fell 63 along ideological lines. conservative doing what they do, best, upholding white supremacy. but just as atlanta, kagan to think, it's worth noting here, she said, quote, maybe some think that voters depression is a relic of story. and so the need for poems section 2 have coming, gone. but congress gets to make that call because it hasn't done so. this court to duty is to apply the law as it's written. what are your thoughts about that, chris? what i'm glad just skating was in the sand. i think she could have gone even further. so yes,
8:35 am
it is up to congress to actually look at these type of laws and protect those. they have not been doing their job or job where people, especially people of color, have voted in record numbers to send them to congress. specifically for this issue . and yet is still be in battle right now. justice came a supreme court justice where the lifetime appointment, writing the descent should have gone further of telling her colleagues, this is wrong. and we need to continue to stop doing the wrong thing and actually work on making the right to vote more accessible to others. so justice katie and i appreciate her descent. but i also appreciate more types of for grant language of say, states be on the lookout. you should not be passing these type of laws and also more adamant language to congress to fix this problem immediately. and christmas goes without saying, but the move to push. so many voter disenfranchisement laws have been
8:36 am
a direct result of trump. big lie of election brought in 2020 election. and the one that had been carried by the republican party and state republican party across the country. soaking republican war is over election integrity largely in states where the minority vote, black, brown, native americans strongly went for joe biden. that has really cause a lot of b with all that is basically the backdrop of these restrictive boating laws that have come about over the past year. last month, the brennan center for justice reported that 22 new voting laws had been enacted in 389 proposed in 48 states. 48 of the 50 following the 2020 election. trump actions, the republicans actions the parties, actions have had consequences, destroying a major cornerstone democracy. chris, in all honesty and i know that you're going to give it to us straight. can we undo it? if not, if we can undo this, it, we must do it. there's no other way our democracy is at
8:37 am
a crossroads at this time. and if we do not do this, then it's just going to get worse. and it's going to get worse into undoing other policies that have tried to protect minorities within this country altogether. so i like how your framing everything going into the specifics of where these laws are being passed, how many are being passed and what we are actually going to go face in the future. but we can't lie down and i know our ancestors didn't lie down. they were facing threats of violence killings, murders in dealing with their jobs. everything else were actually in a position where we do have the resources to fight back. but what you said before is right to conservative. have had this messaging that has caught on so much around the country that they're gonna continuously continue to pass these type of law to the point. whereas penetrated. and they've used the same type of language in the
8:38 am
supreme court in supreme court opinion. the highest court of our land is now using messaging a voter fraud. when again, there are no examples of voter fraud in the war. so we're still seeing the ramifications of the trump administration and concern this trying to hold onto power even when minorities and what is right is losing. we can overcome this though, and it does start on the local level. but it starts with communication and it starts with education. i couldn't agree with you more and i know you're doing the work there in georgia as well as partnering with organizations across the country to ensure not only that, people know what's happening in terms of the voter restriction laws, but also putting the power back in the hands of the people. thanks so much for joining us. first. thank you. and as we go to break, remember that you can also start watching the hot on demand through the portable tv app available on all platform. coming up, i'll be joined by patients, murray,
8:39 am
a survivor of the whole night club mass shooting they to, to watch in the hawks. the me, me the to don't do the notion over 20 news. he will tell which she who fits to love me as soon as she to a little girl for the study. i took me to teach julia traditional moving, but she's really pushing.
8:40 am
you see the one you need from me was over. she said for meeting last week with the metro. okay. she yeah. so i love this is what i need from the new new new which is about what is the new i what's the point up on that got me see the point. i can move it up on that. i will use me pairing and file introducing and found to, to a family when a new mother is going through that process. yeah, there's certainly tremendous cause for great joy, but because it's an event that causes so many different changes. it's stressful at
8:41 am
many levels, to the industry pieces, to spend millions of you know, v today, regulations, business and about making money. i think it's about big corporation, international markets. import export. do you imagine the number of the diseases are in every family today? it's, you know, due to new viruses or new microbes, it's not true. so it is due to environment. less of that, not going to take either the momentum much time with abilene pick you got on the come in today. mostly don't allow us. the food industry will create more jobs, it will create more value added. it will create more. so i don't see why we
8:42 am
shouldn't also fight for the interest something into that we have regulation. we want the regulation of the industry. and if we don't have video specialty, that's fine. ah, it doesn't, you know, probably you know, my back on it would've been like, obviously lucky you know, rocky but you'll have a lost his bus because i just got the problem. you just got to go to a deal we've got for you. i'm on my cell, i don't, but i miss it. so it says, you know what? it was you're not. so my pull up, i got my almost what did i'm already put up. i really just got to go in. i mean, it was a lot going on when i went up and i really just don't get on to the ost viewed it to sandstone. notice that i wanted this, but i'm like, i was,
8:43 am
i just started looking to my family policy. if you go to kind of home i just, but that's a total thing i was calling with you and your team, samantha katie. yeah. my thought aloud problem. you just gotta go. yeah, he's really still think the cars right on police report in december 2020 a group of and she finishes fill out a film crew access for 3 months. 3rd row like if people organization, it's an idea that must be opposed to the game. they make their faces, but they can say what they believe and we believe in helping our community. we believe that fascism is one of the major threats to the united states has gotten driven. this is a chance to see who and teeth are really are in order for me. my 1st amendment right and say that my life matter. i have to be onto the teacher that that's how we
8:44 am
can't trust the police. we can't trust the government. we can't trust anyone except or so to protect ourselves. in the news. the gun violence is the norm in america. it's really such a high point that it's expected, just like the sun rises and sets daily. so does gun violence as a recurring event? death tolls mount so does fear and anger at the lack of movement on gun reform. every time gun reforms reach congress there, slap down by republicans. background checks, no red flag loss. no. closing the gun show loophole. now,
8:45 am
what about closing the boyfriend loophole? that's a no go to well, how about limiting access to high capacity weapons that make mass shootings a lot more dangerous and increase the dep toll exponentially. no. can't do that either. it violates the right to bear arms conservative say. earlier this month, the united states commemorate at the post night clubs shooting on june 12th 20165 years ago. oh mama, teen killed 49 people and wounded 53 more in a mass shooting in orlando, florida. the tragic shooting at a popular game nightclub led to a firestorm, a theory, and what many believe will be done? reforms again, no dice. last week president joe biden signed a law to memorialize victims of the post night club massacre. in his statement, spider said quote, may a president never have to find another monument like this. but survivors of gun
8:46 am
violence are living monuments of pain, fear, anxiety, survivors, guilt, and trying to put the pieces of their lives back together. one of those survivors, patients, marie, joins us live today. murray is an entrepreneur, author, an outreach director for the gun violence survivors foundation. she is also a survivor of the night club shooting. welcome patient. thank you for having me. thank you so much for joining us. patience, i'll be honest with you. this is a hard interview to conduct knowing everything that you've been through reading some of the export from your book. i applaud you for everything that you've done since the 4th night club shooting, as well as the messages that you give to others, the driver of gun violence. you've experienced something i can't even put into words. honestly, the pulls nightclub shooting was among our most tragic mass shooting in american history. you were there. you were in the bathroom taking cover as disastrous growth . you were shot yourself. now,
8:47 am
5 years out of that event and the commit following the commemoration and the many media look back that have happened since. what do you think people need to know about that day? ultimately, people need to know that the route of the issue isn't the route of the issue. the person that owns the root of the issue is a lack of love that we're constantly seeing people who go into a club and care 49. and this is people like a child who goes to school children in their class. me, that's the issue. and sometimes we get wrapped up in a base about gun prevention. we know, we know we need to, we know we need the app that we know we need to be done. yet nothing happens. but they're still survivors of gun violence and people who have been infected by gun violence that a lot in the process of the as
8:48 am
a native chicago in a a agree with you wholeheartedly. i've lost, at least at this point, 17 peace of mind. young kids to community violence and you're right, a lot of people don't think about their survivor. don't think about the families, the friend, the classroom that will have one less child. and i think that those types of those types of situations are just so detrimental to communities, to families, and we have to remember them and what they're going through patient. you've written a book focusing on learning to live after tragedy. you explained trauma, anxiety, p t s d survivors, guilt but also finding love and peace in your life. back together. can you describe why your autobiography was so important for you to write and what you hope other gun violence survivors can gain from your experience? there's a power in telling your own story. i think we need more trauma informed approaches to the way that you're going to allocation people who solicit, survive is. and i think that we need to shift that the power of survive if they're
8:49 am
on themselves because of their food about that there's something healing about that . and i heard the viper and i didn't the anything to the visionary officer for the gun violence survivors foundation and our our bounder chris actually tragically passed away. and this is kind of been a position that's been thrown on to me, but i'm so ready to speak on this because survivors need someone in their corner being their advocate. because there's so many people fighting for the law and fighting for the restriction on the gun itself. but everybody's forgetting the person who was injured by a gun. those people are left behind. those people are forgotten. so if you feel unseen, if you feel forgotten and undershirt as the gun balance divider or a person who has been affected by gun violence, gps foundations here for you and patients. i know you have an event coming up. 8 i
8:50 am
believe it's later today where you're going to be speaking on, on being a gun, violent survivor, but also on some of the steps to reach to reach some level of clarity and putting things back together. can you tell our audience a little bit about that of it? yes, so it's actually going to be on clubhouse in, on our facebook live g, b a foundation on facebook. and i'm actually going to be speaking to survivors everywhere. so just join join the live if you want to chime in, join it on clubhouse and we'll let you in the group. it's about the unmet needs. and i know personally, we need funding for gonzales survivors. and there are so many issues that follow an actual shooting and so many different scenarios that could take place that we just can't generalize, you know, balance as just mass shooting, match, shootings only account for one percent of gonzales in america, in african americans and most effective by gun violence in america,
8:51 am
i'm an african american, but i'm also a mass shooting survivor. so i can see this complexity with sharing my story on platforms. but i cannot talk about it because of the part of my identity. and i'm grateful for this opportunity to lead, but balance of virus foundation in the direction of informing the public on trauma, formed approaches to survivors and just funding for survivors who are left behind and process your, your patients, your life story is this such a testament to who you are and the work that you're doing and how, how you care about gun violence survivors. but also the, as you spoke of these unmet needs that are often left out of the conversation after not only mass shootings, but also the community balance that we see the domestic violence that we see. and all of these other associated gun violence events. we know that you're with the gun violence of virus foundation and that you do great work there. can you share a little bit about what that looks like for you day to day and why this type of
8:52 am
work meant so much you following your own experience? it polls thank you for making for them to duction to that because i don't do anything that special. i think i'm still learning how to become a leader. and i think that's my transparency and letting people know that this is a position that i've been sent to someone died. and i have to step up and take over a mission that nobody seems to care about. you know, everybody cares about the guys and everybody wants to do the heated debates. but when you talk about the balance of ivory, it's like, oh, we'll pray for them. but with the actual access to, you know, medical care where is the access to mitchell, healthcare or spiritual resources. i think changing your mind from victim mentality to a champion mindset. it's very essential for the survivors of violence. but we don't talk about that, nor did we have research for that, nor do we find that. so what i'm doing now is trying to bring awareness. i think people need to see it from a different perspective. and if i can help do that,
8:53 am
i'm on it to do that, but i'm still learning how to believe. well, you are a great spokesperson and a strong leader. you need to give yourself more credit. as you know, gun violence is the persistent problem and you've talked about it and you've talked about it on this show a little bit earlier at the top as it relates to mass shooting, being a much smaller percentage of overall done violence in the us. we're talking about community violence mean a lot more prevalent, especially in our communities of color. are there any policy goals? you mentioned health care access, mental health supports and things like that, or the specific policy goals or areas that you think are necessary not only to stop the violence, but also to help those who suffer from it to get back on track. i think that from what i witnessed in a man's shooting that was basically war. right. and i think people in communities who are underserved, often experienced these parallels of war. and i think it's very necessary for gunbar to virus to have access to veterans assistance programs and funding because
8:54 am
it is p t s d is trauma and know the trauma didn't occur on a foreign land in may. it's happened in america, but it still trauma that is a war. so we need access to those resources and access to those programs that can help combat that p t d and all of the symptoms that come along with that. and we just can't assume that just because especially survivors of color are criminal because they have experience. and i think that everybody desires to have the right to have this re told to tell their own story and also to have access to resources to combat those p t. s. the symptoms that follow up. thanks so much for joining us . press if patience, i'm sorry, and i hope to have you back on again. you're, you're such an inspiration to us all. thank you. thank you. and that is our show
