Joe Madison has been to the region three times and won Talkers Magazine "Sharon Harrison Award" for community service based on work in the Sudan with slavery and "sacks of hope"

Tens of thousands of southern Sudanese women and children have been enslaved, murdered, and driven into exile in Northern Sudan and Chad since 1983. CSI has liberated many and returned them to their homeland in southern Sudan. What happens to them next? After years of slavery and suffering, they are returning with no home and no food , facing extreme famine which will last until the next harvest in August and September. We cannot free them and forget about them! Help Them Start a New Life with a CSI SACK OF HOPE!

Christian Solidarity International is working to provide every returning family with a special start-up sack containing the essentials to begin a new life. www.csi-int.org/csi_sack_of_hope.php

each kit includes...

Tarpaulin to offer shelter from rain and sun which can also be used as a groundsheet

Blanket to keep the whole family warm on cold nights in the bush

Mosquito net for protection against insects, snakes, and scorpions

Cooking pan for boiling water and preparing millet gruel

Plastic canister to carry 5 liters of water

Hand-held sickle for cultivating food and building a home

Refugees also receive 12 kilos of millet, just enough to feed a family of five for one week

Trump's Latest Failure Could Kill 6 million Americans

Thom plus logo Although they haven't yet publicly acknowledged it in such stark terms, it's clear now that the Trump administration has decided pursue a herd immunity strategy to deal with the coronavirus.

Trump's new White House advisor on coronavirus, Scott Atlas, has said it on numerous occasions in multiple venues, and now our Attorney General, Bill Barr, is trying to argue that lockdowns to prevent the spread of the virus are as bad as slavery. Trying to achieve herd immunity in the United States against the coronavirus, assuming it's even possible, would involve between two and 6 million Americans dying.
From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Thom is a national treasure. Read him, embrace him, learn from him, and follow him as we all work for social change."
Robert Greenwald, political activist and founder and president of Brave New Films
From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Thom Hartmann channels the best of the American Founders with voice and pen. His deep attachment to a democratic civil society is just the medicine America needs."
Tom Hayden, author of The Long Sixties and director, Peace and Justice Resource Center.
From Screwed:
"If we are going to live in a Democracy, we need to have a healthy middle class. Thom Hartmann shows us how the ‘cons’ have wronged this country, and tells us what needs to be done to reclaim what it is to be American."
