Break The Silence Against Domestic Violence (2nd In Series)

More than 300,000 women and girls are raped, assaulted and abused in USA annually.

This number does not include those who are emotionally, psychologically and verbally abused daily. It does not include those who are coerced, intimidated, financially deprived and isolated from family.

Girls as young as 13 are in abusive relationships with 15-17 year-old boys who slap them around and who dictate with whom they may associate. Silence IS Affirming.  When you become aware of these abuses, please SAY something. She is NOT His Property. Parents, grandparents, friends, teachers and other adults need to probe and ask questions if you see tell-tale signs of domestic abuse, or if you suspect that something is off; your child is not behaving normally.  Ask questions.  Please..

Please do ALL that you can to put an end to these abusive relationships.  These patterns are established early.  Please Watch and Share this 10 mins very informative video segment linked below; it includes young men, and adult men and women of multiple ethnicity.  They are speaking out against domestic violence. This is the second in a three part series done by OneWorld, Inc.

https://youtu.be/ZnHUsGGIqoI  10 mins (A 1-hr DVD of this program is available from OneWorld)

  • If teenagers are slapping each other around, that is NOT about love; it is about physical abuse. 
  • Please step in and try to put a stop to that type of behavior. 
  • If your teenage boyfriend tells you that he hits you because you make him jealous,
  • Please talk to a trusted adult; get help to get out of that relationship.
  • Love is not about hitting; it is not about domination; it is not about control over a partner or a friend.  Love is not about being selfish, bossy and domineering.
  • Love is about caring; love is about self-respect and respecting others.
  • Respecting  a lover does not include hitting, bullying or verbally abusing that person;
  • it is not about dictating to whom that person can speak or associate.

An Open Streets Family Reunion: Reflections from the 2018 Open Streets Summit

By Ryan O’Connor, Director of Programs, 8 80 Cities Recently 8 80 Cities wrote a blog post about open streets being a labour of love. That being the case, the 2018 Open Streets Summit in New Orleans felt like a family reunion of sorts. It was rejuvenating to see old and new friends who share our passion for open streets and are working tirelessly to create healthier, happier, and more connected communities across the world.

The Justice League

We first published this story about the RVA League for Safer Streets and its co-founders, Jawad Abdu and Paul Taylor, in January. Sadly, Jawad Abdu died of a heart attack on July 13, 2019. We are reposting the article to commemorate Abdu's work and commitment to his community, which will be carried forward by his partners Taylor and Robert Morris.  In less than three years, the RVA League for Safer Streets, a basketball-plus-education program for young men from Richmond communities with high crime rates, has had an extraordinary peace-making impact in the lives of participants—and on the city at large. Its founders were informed by experience and insight wrought by decades behind bars, which is why the League is dedicated to keeping people out of prison, and helping those who are returning to become successful members of their communities. The article that follows contains audio quotes from the League's founders about pivotal experiences in their lives in and outside of prison.

For the Love of the Game—and the Neighborhood

For 13 summers running, Hoops in the Hood has offered a safe, healthy and enriching outlet for Chicago children in nearly 20 historically under-invested neighborhoods. With support from LISC and State Farm, the program has had a tranformative impact on its participants, and their communities.

Walking the Talk of Racial Equity

LISC Phoenix’s Dominic Braham is a 2019 PLACES fellow with the Funder’s Network for Smart Growth and Livable Communities (alongside LISC NYC's Grace Chung). When the fellowship brought him to Newark, NJ for a site visit, it sparked a realization: Braham saw that he had to think critically about pushing for racial equity from both an individual and an institutional perspective. In a blog for the Funder’s Network, he shares the toolbox he’s been assembling to challenge the status quo in community development leadership, and to convert conversations about change into action.
