#289 / Dignity

Here is the headline from an online article that demonstrates how a "politics of dignity" can transform social realities: 

An Ohio county had the second-highest infant mortality rate in the nation. Then they started listening to Black moms.

I think this article is worth reading, in its entirety. Treating Black mothers with respect and dignity made all the difference! What do you think? How about we start doing that for everyone!

The key, as the article demonstrates, is direct participation by those whom governmental efforts are intended to help. One more proof that "participatory democracy" works!
