As many people know, the anti-gay marriage laws DOMA (Defense of Marriage) and Proposition 8 have been up for review in the Supreme Court these past few days. Probably most of us wouldn't know about this if it weren't for the profile picture-changing phenomenon that has swept the country along with it (at least I'm assuming that it has swept the country- my Facebook friends are pretty localized on this coast).
On Tuesday morning, March 26, 2013, as we all geared up to pick sides and have heated debates, a landmark case regarding LGBTQ rights was to be heard before the Supreme Court of the United States.
Students froze while walking, tying shoes and checking cell phones this afternoon in an effort to spread awareness about worldwide human trafficking.
I have found myself becoming increasingly sucked into the environmentalist movement since coming to the University of Richmond.
At 7:05 p.m. a moment of silence for Georgia death row inmate Troy Davis was interrupted by applause.
[This updated version of the story includes the decision to execute Troy Davis on Sept. 21, 2011]
My father grew up on a dairy farm in Ireland, and the intelligence of farm animals has long been a hot topic for him. From informing my siblings and me that pigs bathe in mud to protect their skin from the sun to asserting that cows who are sold onto other farms find their way home to their loved ones, my dad has been convinced for at least as long as I've known him that the level of intelligence among cows and pigs is comparable to that of average human beings. (He even had a small pet pig for a long time - and liked this pig better than any dog he has had since!)
An Azerbaijani court has once again denied an appeal by Adnan Hajizada, an activist and University of Richmond alumnus.
Upon reading the Family Foundation's blog post about their president, Victoria Cobb, receiving the Jepson School of Leadership Studies' 10th Reunion Recognition Award and the resulting student protest, my first instinct was to laugh. It amused me that the Family Foundation — such a supposedly influential, powerful organization — would be so threatened by a group of undergraduate protesters that they chose to insult us rather than to focus on their esteemed leader in their article. That they were unable to correctly spell the word "hypocrisy" was merely icing on the cake.
Republican Bob McDonnell and Democrat Creigh Deeds are in a constantly tightening race for Virginia's governorship, but at the University of Richmond the excitement level seems low - a factor that some think might spell trouble for Deeds as the election approaches.
The University of Richmond's Bonner Center for Civic Engagement will host a panel discussion Sept. 11, regarding the imprisonment of a former student who is being held in Azerbaijan.
The parking lot across from the Jepson Alumni Center was speckled with gay pride and anti-prejudice paraphernalia on Aug. 25, as the Student Alliance for Sexual Diversity led two protests opposing The Family Foundation of Virginia's use of university facilities.
A court hearing in Azerbaijan for detained University of Richmond alumnus Adnan Hajizada is expected to begin sometime after Sept. 8, his father said, and a video message with a statement apparently from Hajizada also confirmed.
A judge in the Azerbaijan capital of Baku has rejected an appeal of the two-month pretrial detention for activists Emin Milli and Adnan Hajizada, dealing a serious setback to opposition hopes that they would be freed before going to trial on charges of hooliganism, Hajizada's father confirmed.
In the first unified response to the University of Richmond to alumnus Adnan Hajizada's controversial arrest in Azerbaijan, 17 professors have co-signed letters in his support to Virginia congressional leaders, Azerbaijan's president and its U.S. ambassador.
Adnan Hajizada, recently arrested for what friends said was his open criticism of the Azerbaijani government, learned how to be a democratic activist while a University of Richmond student, his father told The Collegian.
A 2005 University of Richmond graduate, Adnan Hajizada, has been arrested, detained and apparently beaten in Azerbaijan after he and a fellow activist posted video critical of the nation's government, according to e-mails and media reports.
There are still several things that really trouble me as I listen to the conversation on this campus. I truly believe that we are in what could potentially be a time of growth for our school, but I'm really not convinced that there will be any sort of lasting changes made.
Lois Gibbs knows the power of grassroots activism well.
