'RAISING THE REVOLUTION: AFFIRMING MOTHERHOOD"


"Raising the Revolution: Affirming Motherhood"
Sunday, May 15th, 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.
at Butterfunk Kitchen in Windsor Terrace 

A description of "Raising the Revolution: Affirming Motherhood" by the host, AF3IRM NYC:
Please join AF3IRM NYC for readings and discussions on what mothering looks like in our current reality. We invited two authors who contributed compelling essays to the groundbreaking anthology Revolutionary Mothering: Love on the Front Lines.

Lisa Factora-Borchers and Terri Nilliasca will read from their beautifully written pieces that speak of love alongside struggle. They will share their stories as women and as mothers who deal with the intersecting legacies of two cultures and hopes, how their roles as protectors and nurturers are driven not just by familial love, but by social duty.

AF3IRM’s Joan Ariete will facilitate the discussion and will speak on her involvement in social activism against the backdrop of being an undocumented mother to an American son.

Through "Raising the Revolution: Affirming Motherhood," AF3IRM aims to recognize and discuss the revolutionary powers of motherhood. How do we affirm the roles of motherhood in activism? How does the act of mothering continue to be a revolutionary force in the world? Come join us in celebration and solidarity.

A description of Revolutionary Mothering: Love on the Front Lines by its publisher, PM Press:
Inspired by the legacy of radical and queer black feminists of the 1970s and ’80s, Revolutionary Mothering places marginalized mothers of color at the center of a world of necessary transformation.
The challenges we face as movements working for racial, economic, reproductive, gender, and food justice, as well as anti-violence, anti-imperialist, and queer liberation are the same challenges that many mothers face every day.
Oppressed mothers create a generous space for life in the face of life-threatening limits, activate a powerful vision of the future while navigating tangible concerns in the present, move beyond individual narratives of choice toward collective solutions, live for more than ourselves, and remain accountable to a future that we cannot always see.
Revolutionary Mothering is a movement-shifting anthology committed to birthing new worlds, full of faith and hope for what we can raise up together.
Contributors include June Jordan, Malkia A. Cyril, Esteli Juarez, Cynthia Dewi Oka, Fabiola Sandoval, Sumayyah Talibah, Victoria Law, Tara Villalba, Lola Mondragón, Christy NaMee Eriksen, Norma Angelica Marrun, Vivian Chin, Rachel Broadwater, Autumn Brown, Layne Russell, Noemi Martinez, Katie Kaput, alba onofrio, Gabriela Sandoval, Cheryl Boyce Taylor, Ariel Gore, Claire Barrera, Lisa Factora-Borchers, Fabielle Georges, H.

WALKATHON IN PROSPECT PARK FOR THE MALALA FUND, FOR GIRLS' EDUCATION WORLDWIDE

Walkathon for The Malala Fund
Saturday, May 21st, 12:30 p.m.

A dynamic group of Brooklyn kids are bringing attention this year to the over 60 million girls in the world who are denied education, through supporting The Malala Fund (malala.org), founded by Nobel Peace Prize winner Malala Yousafzai. 

Kids for a Better Future (www.kidsforabetterfuture.org) is a group of Brooklyn children, grades 3-12, dedicated to doing their part for kids around the world. KBF was founded in 2007 by a small group of 3rd graders.

Every year since 2007, KBF has chosen a different cause to support -- from a girls' school in Herat, Afghanistan, to children's healthcare in Bhopal, India, to supporting homeless kids in NYC. KBF has raised a total of over $100,000 in the past nine years for children all over the world!

The 12th graders founded the organization in their 3rd grade. Now, the new 3rd graders are taking it over! Under the mentorship of a few older kids, these 3rd graders have met with representatives of the Malala Fund, and have already raised over $8,000 this year for the girls' schools and educational programs they run.

The 9th Annual KBF Walkathon will be held on May 21st, 2016 at 12:30pm in Prospect Park. This will be the last Walk for the 12th graders (soon off to college) and the first for the 3rd graders. Organized by both age groups, KBF hopes it will be their biggest and most successful Walkathon yet!

Further details are on the Walkathon flyer (posted above) and the KBF website.

The Malala Fund runs a host of life changing programs, including funding the efforts of Pakistani schools to enroll more girls, establishing girls’ mentorship programs in Nigeria, investing in girls’ schools for Syrian refugees in Lebanon and Jordan, training Kenyan girls living in slums in information technology, and much more. Additionally, the Malala Fund also invests in crucial advocacy work, bringing pressure on governments to enact policies that will make Malala’s dream of universal girls’ education a reality.

VIOLENT ALLEGED ATTACKER OF ELDERLY WOMEN ARRESTED



An arrest was made this morning in the case of the armed criminal who was wanted for attacking mainly senior citizens. Twenty minutes after a tip was reported to the Crime Stoppers hotline, the NYPD arrested 64-year-old Clarence Jones on Lincoln Place in the 78th Precinct in Brooklyn for allegedly committing eight armed robberies and assaults.

Jones' alleged victims were women ranging in age from their 70s to the 90s as well as a few people younger than that who stumbled upon the crime scenes. He allegedly followed them home and then either hit, choked, or pistol-whipped them and robbed them. 

He was armed at various times with a gun, a knife, and a box-cutter. The attacks occurred in several neighborhoods in Brooklyn and in Queens and the Bronx.

The attack in our neighborhood occurred on Ocean Parkway near Beverley Road on Saturday, March 26th, in the daytime, just like the others. After following an 83-year-old woman into the building she lives in, he allegedly knocked on her door, then hit her in the face with a hard unspecified object.

Chief of Detectives Robert Boyce had said earlier that "Jones has 19 prior arrests and spent 14 years in prison for the exact same crime." He was released on parole in 2014.

RUN, DOGGIE, RUN! DOG RUN FULLY FUNDED AS OF TODAY



As of today, the Kensington Dog Run is fully funded!
With much excitement, we are happy to share the news that the Kensington Dog Run will be fully-funded this year!

The project was made possible with allocated funds via Participatory Budgeting from Council Member Mathieu Eugene of District 40 and via Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams' capital allocations. The balance of the funds needed will be covered by Council Member Brad Lander of District 39.

Once the City budget passes at the end of June, the Prospect Park Alliance and the Parks Department will work together to develop a design for the new dog run. They’ll then put out a call for bids from contractors, select a contractor, and sign an agreement. Once the contractor is on board, construction can begin!

Thanks to everyone who voted for the dog run in Participatory Budgeting this year and to all of the residents for their ongoing support. This is a huge victory for the neighborhood!


Sal Garro, President
Kensington Dog Run Association
Thank you to the Kensington Dog Run Association for devoting so much time and effort to making a dog run a reality for the neighborhood's dogs and their human companions.

CIVIL RIGHTS LACKING FOR ADOPTEES BORN IN NEW YORK











PETITION ALERT
______________________________

Tim Monti-Wohlpart, a Windsor Terrace resident and New York-born adoptee, has launched an urgent petition to advocate for the human and civil rights of New York born adoptees who were placed via "closed" adoptions. He and the more than 1,000 people who have already signed in support are appealing for a return to a "CLEAN" version of the New York Bill of Adoptee Rights (A2901B).

To see the details of the Internet petition and sign it, please visit


The preferred "CLEAN" version of the New York Bill of Adoptee Rights would have given New York-born adult adoptees (18+) access to their original birth certificates so that they could seek out their birth parents and confirm their medical history and heritage.

Currently, when adoptees appeal to courts for help with medical history, they are routinely denied. Some have died.

Birth parents would have been able to complete non-binding "contact preference" forms at any time to designate their openness to contact from adoptees.

Unfortunately, the New York Bill of Adoptee Rights got amended last June by the Assembly Codes Committee, which includes local District 44 Assemblymember James Brennan.

The changes to the bill include proposals for a bureaucratic, costly process, involving judges who are on the record as being hostile to any adoption reform. That could result in redaction of original birth certificate information. Adoption rights advocates feel that the changes made to the bill do not properly honor the human and civil rights of New York-born adult adoptees.

To see the details of the Internet petition and sign it, please visit


Anybody from any location in the world can consider and sign (and comment, if they wish) on this initiative. It is also possible to keep your name from being posted publicly on the website if you choose, though your name would be included in the initial petition delivery that will likely take place by the end of next week (the week of April 25th).

Those who agree with the petition are encouraged to sign it as quickly as possible for the best chance for your name to be counted in the first petition delivery.  Later petition deliveries are possible, depending on how the appeal may progress after a first delivery.

In addition to Assemblymember James Brennan, the bill's main sponsors--David Weprin (New York State Assembly - Queens) and Andrew Lanza (New York State Senate - Staten Island)--have been contacted and will receive the petition.

Tim Monti-Wohlpart plans to be present at Sean Casey Animal Rescue on Saturday (April 23rd) and Sunday (April 24th), starting at 11:00 a.m. Tim would like the public to know that when a human being is adopted in New York, they often receive less information about themselves than owners receive about their own adopted pets.

You are invited to stop by to discuss adoptee rights and meet with Tim. The rescue is at 153 E. 3rd Street, Brooklyn, NY 11218, between Caton Avenue and Fort Hamilton Parkway. Tim thanks Sean Casey Animal Rescue for the opportunity to be present there.
