LIUNA Endorses Obama


Laborers International Union of North America Endorses Obama

“President Obama has earned a second term as President,” said Terry O’Sullivan, LIUNA General President. “Despite unprecedented and unrelenting hostility from extremist Republicans determined to see him fail, President Obama has achieved many laudable goals. We think America needs a leader who will fight to create jobs and build a bigger middle class. It’s a no- brainer – Barack Obama is the only choice to lead this country for four more years.”



Adilah Barnes at Whitworth – One Actor’s Journey

Cover of Adila Barnes' autobiography

Adilah Barnes performance in the one woman show I Am That I Am: Woman, Black at Whitworth University on October 26 was an evening of inspiring theater. The choice of women portrayed (from Sojourner Truth forward to Angela Davis and May Angelou), the interesting and meaningful selection of their words woven together with song in a dark theater was moving. As the excellent questions from students, faculty and community members revealed something of Ms. Barnes life and spirit and because some of her life path seemed to parallel my own I decided to buy her book so I could find out more.  We talked a little as she signed the book and indeed we had both been college students in the San Francisco Bay area in the late 60’s and early 70’s – that great time of change. . . . . .

But as I opened her book and read about her origins I realized we had even more in common – we are both from Oroville, California. . . . . (more)

Thanks to Adilah Barnes for sharing her life journey so unreservedly. It was heart warming to read the story of someone who set goals and didn’t let anything stop her from reaching them.  More information about her, including where you can buy her book, may be found at her website.
