Foto de Sandra T. Montes vía Facebook.[Episcopal News Service – Linthicum Heights, Maryland] La Rvdma. Jennifer L. Baskerville-Burrows profundizó en su sermón, invocando rítmicamente los nombres de una gran nube de testigos cuya presencia era hondamente sentida por los que se reunieron cerca de Baltimore esta semana para la conferencia Proyecto de Historia de las Mujeres Episcopales.“Ustedes las conocen, mujeres como Pauli Murray; ¡digan su nombre!  Verna Dozier; ¡digan su nombre!  Margaret Bush, primera mujer negra en servir en la Cámara de diputados; ¡digan su nombre!”, dijo Baskerville-Burrows, la recién electa obispa de Indianápolis y la primera obispa diocesana negra elegida en la Iglesia Episcopal.. “¡Pronúncienlos! ¿Quién más? ¡Digan su nombre! La Rda. Carmen Guerrero; ¡digan su nombre! Digámosle estos nombres a nuestros hijos, de manera que sepan quienes son”.La conferencia, del 12 al 15 de junio, la primera en la historia del grupo que se centra en las mujeres de color, reunió a mujeres laicas y ordenadas de todo el país. Araceli Ma, que trabaja con el ministerio latino en la Diócesis de Washington, dijo que ella vino para garantizar una presencia latina en la conferencia y para mostrarles a sus dos hijas, de 13 y 10 años de edad, las oportunidades abiertas para ellas.Durante el tiempo que pasaron juntas, las mujeres compartieron historias de sus propias esperanzas y dificultades, encontrando con frecuencia un abrumador sentido de conexión en sus experiencias particulares.“Mi historia es nuestra historia”, dijo Baskerville-Burrows durante su homilía del 12 de junio.La Rda. Matilda Dunn, presidente del Proyecto de Historia, dijo que la planificación de la conferencia de este año comenzó hace aproximadamente dos años. El proyecto había estado recogiendo historias y relatos orales de mujeres a través de la Iglesia Episcopal, desde las famosas hasta las leales feligresas y miembros de la sociedad del altar que a menudo forman la columna principal de una parroquia.“Debemos honrarlas porque ellas también están haciendo el trabajo de la Iglesia”, afirmó [Dunn]. “Es importante para mí porque la historia ha de preservarse para todos nosotros, hombres y mujeres”.Sin embargo, Dunn y otras personas sintieron la necesidad de reservar algún tiempo para las mujeres de color, a fin de honrar y celebrar su historia colectiva. Mediante la Rda. Nan Peete, consiguieron a Baskerville-Burrows como predicadora y a la Rda. Kelly Brown Douglas, recién nombrada decana de la Escuela Episcopal de Teología, como oradora principal. La conferencia se inició el lunes, el día en que la Rvdma. Barbara C. Harris, la primera mujer ordenada obispa en la Comunión Anglicana, cumplía 87 años.En la mañana del 13 de junio, Douglas instó a los que asistían a la conferencia a decir la verdad acerca de sus experiencias y de cómo sus vidas habían configurado su visión del mundo.“Tenemos que decir la verdad respecto a quienes somos. A este país no le gusta contar la verdad sobre sí mismo”, señaló ella. “Ahora bien, si la Iglesia Episcopal cuenta la verdad sobre sí misma, lo que es, eso será como contar la verdad sobre esta nación”.Durante su discurso, ella citó recientes estadísticas del censo para ofrecer un vistazo de las luchas y retos a que se enfrentaron muchas mujeres y, en particular, mujeres de color. Alrededor del 25 por ciento de todas las mujeres negras e hispanas viven en la pobreza, y esa cifra asciende al 28 por ciento para las mujeres nativoamericanas. En consecuencia, los niños también sufren. Los índices de pobreza oscilan entre el 13 por ciento de los niños asiáticos al 36 por ciento de los niños afroamericanos, dijo Douglas.Las cifras de la justicia criminal son igualmente desalentadoras con índices de encarcelamiento para mujeres negras e hispanas que exceden los porcentajes de población.“Dados estos hechos, ¿qué significa todo esto para nosotras que estamos reunidas aquí?, dijo Douglas. “Somos llamadas a mostrar lo que significa ser la Iglesia. Somos llamadas a recordar [a Jesús] actuando y obrando de la manera  que él lo haría en el mundo”.Para Douglas,, el encuentro de Jesús con la mujer samaritana, tal como lo cuenta el evangelio de Juan, fue un ejemplo perfecto de cómo uno cruza las barreras sociales, echa a un lado el privilegio social y encuentra verdadera y genuina comunión. Ella les recordó que incluso aunque sus vidas hayan transcurrido dentro del mundo de la Iglesia Episcopal, con frecuencia seguían siendo ajenas con una perspectiva singular. También instó [a sus oyentes] a encontrar un terreno común con los mujeres que no estaban en el centro de conferencias, donde las bandejas de dulces y las jarras de café llenaban las mesas a la salida del salón climatizado.“Las mujeres samaritanas de nuestro tiempo son las mujeres que se parecen a nosotras”, dijo ella. “Es a esas mujeres a las que debemos responder”.Durante una sesión de preguntas y respuestas que siguió al discurso principal, Grecia Adriana Rivas, que vive cerca de San Diego, California, habló del temor y la ansiedad incontrolados en las comunidades de inmigrantes e indocumentados en los últimos meses. Los agentes de Inmigración y Aduanas de EE.UU. (ICE por su sigla en inglés) han sido vistos patrullando la feria del condado o vigilando las iglesias, apuntó ella.“Estaba tan furiosa”, dijo ella. “Ya ni siquiera podemos divertirnos.  Ya ni podemos practicar nuestra fe”.Douglas respondió con un repetido llamado a la solidaridad.“Debemos hacer acto de presencia cuando es nuestra causa y cuando no es nuestra causa porque es nuestra causa”, afirmó. “Debemos estar allí los unos por los otros”.A través de la conferencia, las mujeres dedicaron tiempo a cuestionar el significado de diversidad, los aspectos prácticos de ser una iglesia de acogida, y las historias culturales que cada uno aporta a la Iglesia. Durante el culto, cuando fueron invitadas a rezar el Padre Nuestro en el idioma de sus corazones, las palabras familiares pudieron escucharse en inglés, español y navajo.La Rda. Cornelia Eaton, diácona que sirve en la Diócesis de Navajolandia, mencionó la dolorosa historia de Fort Sumner, Nuevo México, donde en la década del 60 del siglo XIX, el gobierno de EE.UU. mudó a la fuerza a miles de navajos sacados de sus tierras para vivir en condiciones miserables en el Bosque Redondo. El empeño de relocalización fracasó y al cabo de unos años, los navajos fueron devueltos a sus hogares. Pero la historia perdura y el fuerte y sus contornos son recordados como “el lugar del sufrimiento”, dijo Eaton.“Todas somos tejedoras de muchas culturas y tradiciones”, dijo ella. “Yo me convertí en una tejedora de la tradición cristiana y la tradición navaja”.Algunos de los relatos compartidos conllevaron singulares encuentros que tenían eco entre las asistentes y provocaron risas en el salón. Sandra Montes, que es afroperuana y proviene de la Diócesis de Texas, contó la ocasión en que ella y su madre estaban comprando tarjetas de felicitación en Boston, Massachusetts. Montes dijo que mientras estaban riéndose y leyendo las tarjetas, dos mujeres mayores blancas se dirigieron a ellas y les dijeron: “las tarjetas mexicanas están allá”. Montes  contó que ella y su madre se quedaron mirando a las mujeres y les dijeron: “pero nosotras somos peruanas”.La Rda. Yein Esther Kim, proveniente de la Escuela de Teología Episcopal donde fue ordenada en 2014 y quien ahora sirve en la Diócesis de Los Ángeles, compartió que “hacer acto de presencia” puede tener un matiz particular para una mujer de color.“Cuando perciben que [un evento] no es suficientemente diverso o lo bastante multicultural, me invitarán, como si yo pudiera aportarles un poco de diversidad”, dijo Kim, que es coreana-americana. Luego, yo voy, porque nada sucederá si no me aparezco”.En verdad, el valor de presentarse, de ser vistas y de aportar su voz a la conversación cultural, ya sea en marchas, en redes sociales o en la vida de la Iglesia Episcopal, no pasó inadvertido para las mujeres.”Dios es fiel—seámoslo también nosotras”, dijo Baskerville-Burrows durante su homilía de apertura. “Las mujeres de color no seremos borradas. No nos harán invisibles. Aprendamos a vernos como Jesús nos ve. Porque Dios nos dice a todas nosotras, a todas las mujeres de color en la Iglesia, “yo TE veo”.— El Rdo. M.

It was first launched in the UK in 1997 focusing on diabetic eye disease and glaucoma. However given the UK’s changing demographics – an ageing and more ethnically diverse population – the programme is now being re-launched to cover all major eye diseases while also supporting improved accessibility and awareness of Low Vision Services.

Publisher of UK Fundraising, the world’s first web resource for professional fundraisers, since 1994. Trainer and consultant in digital fundraising. Founder of Fundraising Camp and co-founder of GoodJobs.org.uk. Researching massive growth in giving. In an event attended by local MP, David Cameron, a new and very special charity in has held its official launch.Hosted by Eynsham Hall, Witney, Cameron, as well as the charity’s patron Matt Hampson, ex-England Under 21 and Leicester Tigers Rugby player, attended the event and helped to celebrate the amazing work achieved by this worthwhile cause.The charity is dedicated to enabling all young people with disabilities to use specially-adapted technology to enable them to play computer games and express themselves creatively through art and music amongst other areas. Without such adaptations, games technology is often too difficult for people with disabilities to use and SpecialEffect’s aim is to find a way for everyone to enjoy it.During the course of the evening, the guests were treated to an opportunity to try out a range of specially modified games and leisure technology. Even if a young person is completely paralysed this special technology will allow them to compete and participate in the same way as everyone else by moving their eyes.Dr Mick Donegan, who founded the charity, is working closely with the inspirational Matt Hampson, who was tragically paralysed while training with the England under-21’s rugby team. Two years on from Mick’s first support visit to Matt at Stoke Mandeville, Matt is settled back at home and getting the most of what special technology has to offer. Now, he feels he is in a position where he is ready, willing and able to help other people with disabilities by becoming the Patron of SpecialEffect.As well providing an opportunity for David Cameron and other guests to try out a range of specially adapted technology, the occasion also marked the launch of an Oxfordshire-based appeal in partnership with Helen and Douglas House. The project, ‘A Game for Helen’, will see SpecialEffect establish the world’s fully accessible computer gaming suite for disabled children at the East Oxford hospice. It will aim to enable all of the young people who stay at Helen and Douglas House to gain full access to this technology.Donegan says “No-one can underestimate the benefits of this kind of technology for young people with disabilities. Not only does it increase motivation and self-esteem, it also provides a perfect opportunity for social interaction – an enjoyable and relaxed context within which young disabled and non-disabled people can compete and interact with each another on a level playing field. In addition, for those who have locked-in creative abilities in areas such as music and design, this technology can provide a desperately needed release for their hidden talents.”END.Notes to editorshttp://www.specialeffect.org.uk/Spokesperson available on requestPhotography available on request Tagged with: Celebrity  27 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThislast_img read more

Radio station suspended after giving air-time to rebels

first_img to go further The 2020 pandemic has challenged press freedom in Africa BurundiAfrica Reporters Without Borders called on the Burundian government today to immediately end its shutdown of the radio station Isanganiro for allowing an anti-government rebel leader to go on the air.”This decision deprives people of news and is especially damaging when the country is starting new talks to re-establish peace,” said the press freedom organisation in its request to communications minister Albert Mbonerane. “Burundians want to form their opinions freely. It is not for the authorities to say what material should be broadcast.” The privately-owned Isanganiro went off the air on 13 September after the minister ordered it to close for a week, accusing it of broadcasting “defamatory statements about the government at a time when it is trying to achieve an overall and permanent ceasefire.” The station had allowed Pasteur Habimana, spokesman for the Hutu-based rebel National Liberation Forces to speak in a programme. The government has several times asked radio stations not to broadcast interviews or statements by rebel leaders.Other privately-owned stations in Burundi decided the day after Isanganiro’s suspension to refuse to cover the activities of the government and of President Domitien Ndayizeye until Isanganiro was allowed back on the air. Burundian appeal court upholds prison sentences for four journalists The independent radio station Isanganiro was shut down for a week on 13 September after broadcasting an interview with the leader of one of the country’s rebel groups. Reporters Without Borders called on communications minister Albert Mbonerane to lift the ban.

Chu Expresses Support for CPC’s Recommendations on the Border Crisis Published on Thursday, July 10, 2014 | 11:36 am 0 commentsShareShareTweetSharePin it Today, Congresswoman Judy Chu (D-CA) expressed support for the Congressional Progressive Caucus (CPC) adoption of “Kids First: A Response to the Southern Border Humanitarian Crisis.” The purpose of this comprehensive set of policy recommendations is to help guide the Obama Administration and Congress’ response to the surge of unaccompanied minors arriving at the southern border of the United States.As a Vice-Chair of the Congressional Progressive Caucus, Congresswoman Chu released the following statement:“Our recommendations reflect our moral responsibility as a nation to protect and treat unaccompanied children with care and compassion, and do what is in the best interest of the child. We strongly believe that the answer to this crisis cannot be fast-tracked repatriations that curtail due process and may block children from seeking protection,” said Rep. Chu. “Most importantly, we must stand against any legislative fix that diminishes protections under existing law and risks pushing these children back into violence.”Since 2011, the number of unaccompanied minors attempting to cross the southwest border has drastically increased. The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) predicts that an estimated 90,000 unaccompanied children will attempt to enter the country by the end of this year. Many of the children attempting to cross into the U.S. are fleeing extremely violent environments in El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras – collectively known as the Northern Triangle of Central America. Drug cartel and gang-related activity are the main cause for most of the violence occurring in the region.center_img First Heatwave Expected Next Week Business News Pasadena’s ‘626 Day’ Aims to Celebrate City, Boost Local Economy Get our daily Pasadena newspaper in your email box.

He holds a bachelor of arts degree in film production from California State University Northridge.The Helen Keller Lecture Series pays tribute to Keller who was born in Tuscumbia. She had an acute illness that left her deaf and blind at 19 months old. No way could be found to educate her until her seventh year when she began her special education in reading and writing with Annie Sullivan.Helen Keller quickly learned to read by the Braille system and to write by means of a specially constructed typewriter. In 1890, she learned to speak after only one month of study. Ten years later, she was able to enter Radcliffe College, where she graduated with honors in 1904.She went on to become a world-famous speaker and author. She is remembered as an advocate for people with disabilities. Her legacy lives on through generations of deaf and blind children and adults at Alabama Institute for Deaf and Blind.
