Who exactly is the REAL bad guy in Star Wars?

BTW, I know Sidious is supposed to be, at least pre-Sequel Trilogy.   However,   I was more talking about who each side represents.

First off, there is talk that Palpatine actually represented Richard Nixon.  Nixon even said “I am the Senate!” or something similar.   Lucas said that the Galactic Empire was the USA and the Ewoks and the Alliance were the Vietcong.    Lucas called Han Solo a murderer for shooting Greedo in self-defense.

Advocacy Fund Buddies

Criminal Justice

8th Amendment Project Opportunity Fund -The 8th Amendment Project coordinates the national campaign to end the death penalty. The campaign employs all available tools to achieve, repeal, and decrease the number of death sentences and executions. At the same time, it works to change public discourse about the death penalty in this country. The campaign systematically pushes for both reduced usage and repeal in the states to achieve a successful U.S. Supreme Court review, and includes: litigation, legislation and policy reform, field and outreach efforts, communication, and where applicable, electoral strategy. It fosters the partnerships between national organizations, state groups, litigators, advocates, and funders that are essential to create lasting change.

Alliance for Citizenship – Alliance for Citizenship builds support for workable comprehensive immigration reform. The Campaign connects people from communities across the country who are ready to work together towards achieving the 279 votes needed to win just and humane comprehensive immigration reform legislation. Read more about A4C’s story at TAF.

The group, whose name alludes to Martin Luther King, Jr.’s famous speech at the 1963 March on Washington, aims to address the structural problems at the heart of the Martin case: the criminalization of people of color, police brutality, and mass incarceration – all of which add up to a system that can be called “the new Jim Crow.” They seek to train and organize youth and students in nonviolent civil disobedience, civic engagement, and direct action, while creating a sustainable network of youth and student leaders to take action and create change in their communities.

Fund for Fair and Just Policing in NYC – The Fund for Fair and Just Policing in NYC is a campaign engaged in stopping abusive stop-and frisk practices by New York City police by substantially decreasing bias-based encounters with the police, increasing the ability of the most affected communities to hold the police accountable and prevent abusive policing, and building the political will in New York City among the public and policymakers to advance a more just and humane policing paradigm in New York City.

Alliance for Safety and Justice Action – Vote Safe launched the Yes on Proposition 47 campaign on the California ballot in the Fall of 2014, allowing voters the chance to reduce seven low-level, nonviolent drug and theft offenses from felonies to misdemeanors.

Educurious  Buddies

Blend My Learning Buddies

The Clayton Christensen Institute is a nonprofit, nonpartisan think tank dedicated to improving the world through disruptive innovation. Founded on the theories of Harvard professor Clayton M. Christensen, the Institute offers a unique framework for understanding many of society’s most pressing problems. Our mission is ambitious but clear: work to shape and elevate the conversation surrounding these issues through rigorous research and public outreach.

Next Generation Learning Challenges (NGLC) is a collaborative, multi-year initiative created to address the barriers to educational innovation and tap the potential of technology to dramatically improve college readiness and completion in the United States. NGLC is guided by the belief that providing investment capital to expand the use of proven and emerging learning technologies, collecting and sharing evidence of what works, and fostering a community of innovators and adopters will result in a robust pool of solutions and greater institutional adoption which, in turn, will dramatically improve the quality of learning experiences in the United States. Many potentially breakthrough solutions are being developed and tested by educators, institutions, technologists, and entrepreneurs, but too often they operate with little access to each other or to opportunities to disseminate their innovations. Support is needed to refine and rigorously test their solutions, to connect with other like-minded innovators, and to develop strategies to broaden their reach and impact.

NGLC is led by EDUCAUSE in partnership with the League for Innovation in the Community Collegethe International Association for K-12 Online Learning (iNACOL), and the Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO). Funding is being provided by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation.

Silicon Schools Fund is a new non-profit venture philanthropy fund in the Bay Area of California that supports the creation and replication of blended-learning schools. Silicon Schools Fund seeks to encourage innovative models that personalize learning for students and reimagine what is possible in schools. Committed to a research and development approach, Silicon Schools Fund works to attract the best educators and technologists in the world to the Bay Area to launch or re-design next-generation schools.

The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation is guided by the belief that every life has equal value. The Gates Foundation works to help all people lead healthy and productive lives. In developing countries, it focuses on improving people’s health and giving them the chance to lift themselves out of hunger and extreme poverty. In the United States, it seeks to ensure that all people – especially those with the fewest resources – have access to the opportunities they need to succeed in school and life.

The Charter School Growth Fund (CSGF) is a non-profit venture capital fund working to transform K-12 education by investing in innovative charter school networks that offer outstanding educational options for underserved students. Founded in 2005, its mission is to invest philanthropic venture capital in the nation’s highest performing charter school operators to dramatically expand their impact on low-income and minority students. Its Next Generation School initiative supports entrepreneurs developing next generation schools in the charter sector. Many of these schools will blend learning by combining online learning technology with the key tenets of successful bricks-and-mortar CMO’s, creating personalized learning experiences for students, and delivering dramatically better results.

Beyond the Choir

Beyond the Choir

To build movements capable of winning real change, we need to do more than just “preach to the choir.” Beyond the Choir partners with social justice organizations to craft resonant messaging, plan strategic campaigns, and mobilize larger bases of support.

science and the principles of justice.

However, these farmers face ever greater odds in accessing affordable and secure land tenure; the price of land in the US has skyrocketed in the past decade, and one acre of farmland is lost to development every minute.     Web: http://agrariantrust.org     [19 May 2014]

Dark Mountain Project     A network of writers, artists and thinkers who have stopped believing the stories our civilisation tells itself. We see that the world is entering an age of ecological collapse, material contraction and social and political unravelling, and we want our cultural responses to reflect this reality rather than denying it. The Project grew out of a feeling that contemporary literature and art were failing to respond honestly or adequately to the scale of our entwined ecological, economic and social crises.

Death of a Million Trees     Although we have preferences, we like all trees and we don’t like to see any healthy tree destroyed.

Death Penalty Focus     Committed to the abolition of the death penalty through public education, grassroots organizing and political advocacy, media outreach, and domestic and international coalition building. We believe that the death penalty is an ineffective, cruel, and simplistic response to the serious and complex problem of violent crime. It institutionalizes discrimination against the poor and people of color, diverts attention and financial resources away from preventative measures that would actually increase public safety, risks the execution of innocent people, and does not deter crime.     Address: 5 Third Street, Suite 725, San Francisco CA 94103     Voice: (415) 243-0143     Fax: (415) 766-4593     Email: information@deathpenalty.org     Web: http://www.deathpenalty.org/     [28 Jan 2014]

Disability Rights Education and Defense Fund (DREDF)     A leading national civil rights law and policy center directed by individuals with disabilities and parents who have children with disabilities. Americans with disabilities make up one of the United States’ largest minorities. More than 25% live in poverty and only about 20% have gone to college. Seventy–five percent are unemployed. Such economic and social disenfranchisement is not an inevitable consequence of the physical and mental limitations imposed by disability; it is the result of society’s historic response to those limitations: lack of accessibility in the built environment and policies that encourage or even require exclusion, segregation, and institutionalization. The result is a legacy of prejudice and paternalism that is deeply embedded in the social consciousness.     Address: 3075 Adeline Street, Suite 210, Berkeley CA 94703     Voice: (510) 644-2555     Fax: (510) 841-8645 (fax and tty)     Email: info@dredf.org     Web: http://www.dredf.org     [14 Apr 2017]

Grandmothers Against the War     We are grandmothers committed to ending the military presence of the United States in the Middle East and Afghanistan.
