    LESMA Team Discusses Tamir Rice

    in Current Events

    One year ago, police were called to a park in Cleveland with reports of a 'black male waving a pistol'. That black male was 12 year old, 5' 7", 195 lb Tamir Rice. Eyewitness reports are clear that Tamir Rice was reaching for his gun when he was shot and killed by police. What nobody on the scene knew was that the gun he was waving was an airsoft BB gun with the safety markings removed.
    The media is playing up this story again as the anniversary date of the event just passed. David and the team are going to discuss this case in depth and what we as LESMA and Blue Justice listeners can do about it.

    Data-Driven Justice

    in Non-Profit

    Ralph Martire, the Executive Director for the Center for Tax and Budget Accountability (CTBA) believes it essential to have the commitment and ability to stay focused on resolving major inequities for the long term, and to work collaboratively with other experts, organizations, and opinion leaders to move the agenda forward. “Gone are the days when community leaders could gather a crowd, make an emotional appeal, and then step back and watch elected officials respond in a meaningful way”, Martire said.  “Not only must nonprofit leaders make the moral case for systemic change, they have to be prepared to back it up with evidence.”

    Join us as Ralph Martire talks about CBTA’s programs and services and ways community-based organizations can use data to drive policy, advocacy and programs to bring about social justice.

    The Road to Enlightenment with Kellie Fitzgerald and WomanKraft Art Center

    in Goals

    Today I have the pleasure of talking with Zoe and Grace from WomanKraft Art Center in Tucson, AZ. This center was established in 1974 and according to their website is the place where "dreams you didn't even know you had come true."  WomanKraft Art Center was founded in 1974 to claim, validate, and empower women artists and other under represented groups. 

    Kraft with a “K” means power in German.  In 1974 the founders of WomanKraft chose this name to claim, validate, and empower the cultural contributions of women and incorporate this non-profit Arts Organization.

    In 1979 WomanKraft started the Community Artist Project and received Comprehensive Education and Training Federal Money to send artists out into the community to work with special populations, such as prisons, mental institutions, special schools, senior citizen centers, and other social service places.

    Research Methods in Criminal Justice – Theory and Philosophy

    in Training

    Brought to you by The American Public Safety Training Institute (TAPSTI) www.tapsti.org, this 2 hour session will review the work of Dr. Peter Kraska and Dr. W. Lawrence Neuman in their excellent textbook entitled “Criminal Justice and Criminology Research Methods” (2012, 2nd ed.).  This first seminar helps answer some basic questions about knowledge, how it is constructed and what it has to do with criminal justice studies. We have questions we ask every day, departments across the country need research done, but who is to say what research needs to be done and how it is to be done to satisfy the needs of that Chief, Warden, Regional Administrator, or other agency manager who needs to make serious and accurate decisions based on your work? This seminar introduces the concepts of epistemology, positivist social science, interpretive social science, and critical social science. Then we go into the parts of a theory and variables in research before expanding to the development of a theory.  The latter half of the seminar reviews Grounded Theory, Temporal Order, Association, Types of Variables, etc. and then we finish up with Hypothesis and errors in reasoning.

    Social Justice: Value of Education

    in Current Events

    College, professional, and graduate schools currently cost more than ever. The cost of higher education has surged more than 538% since 1985 while the consumer price index has increased by  121%. Higher education is 4.5 times as expensive today as it was 30 years ago. There are people today who went into debt for higher education who are having their social security retirement checks garnished for student loan repayment. Among 22-year-old degree holders who found jobs in the past three years, more than half were in roles not requiring a college diploma, The young and educated are settling for jobs they wouldn’t have accepted a decade ago,

    Going to a four year school is supposed to be the foundation from which you create a future, not the transaction that crushes hopes and places you in debt that few can pay off in 10 years. What has been missing in the past was a way to get feedback or collaborate on ideas while studying on-line. Successful students of today are people who explore many things, tinkerers and fixers who see solutions to problems that other people do not see. Among the leaders in “free education “ is Khan Academy which has a unique teaching style with quality content and a wide breadth of topics; providing bite-sized, easily-understood lessons, and providing the positive feedback that keeps the student coming back .

    Students are turning to “self-study” programs blossoming on-line. Some are taking the bare minimum number of classes required by a “big name” university, at the cheapest price, then take educational and enrichment courses through free non-degree online courses .  Such students are choosing to build their own educational curricula.
