Intuitive abilities..."We all have them" but it's really frustrating to hear that when you feel as though you've missed out on your quotient of abilities in these areas. There are things that can stand in the way and Doris Wittmann will discuss these today and take you through a simple exercise that you can practice any time.
Our goal is to bring local Latino law enforcement organizations together to form a Coalition. These local organizations continue doing the great work they have always been successful for. The NCLO supports these local organizations accomplish their missions locally, by providing them with technical assistance, education, training and career development opportunities. Most importantly, it unites these local organizations in a network of unity that enables the Coalition to have ONE strong voice.

Today Karen with Autism Empowerment Radio sits down with Darla Helt & Sandy Silveria from the Parent Coalition of Clark County to talk about the Parent Coalition, who it serves and how it works.
There are many Parent Coalitions throughout the country. They are designed to help people with autism, developmental disabilities, special needs and their families with an array of services that:
Link families with their natural support system, the community, and other families who have similar experiences.
Help families to better understand and access the system.
Respond to crisis.
Involve families in decision-making at both state and local levels.
Provide current, accurate information and networking opportunities.
Form a power base to advocate for the needs of people with disabilities / differing abilities in our community and state.
Help new parent groups get established and serves as a resource for leadership in new and existing groups.
The coordinators gather pertinent information from all areas, including state and county government, service providers and advocacy / planning organizations. They also help organize community meetings and forums for the purpose of educating, sharing and discussing issues of mutual concern. The information gathered is distributed to members of the Parent Coalition through meetings, forums, the internet and dissemination from partnering organizations such as Autism Empowerment and Autism Empowerment Radio.

Through tragedy comes action. Mothers Against Gangs (MAG) is a coalition born out of the tragic killing of Martin Alberto Garza in the Imperial Valley of California. Martin didn’t come from a dysfunctional family like those who usually get involved in gangs, Martin wasn’t involved in gangs, but happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time and was fatally stabbed by a gang member on January 6, 2013.
Our guest for this week’s show, Martin’s mother and founder of MAG is Yulil Alonso-Garza. She will relay to listeners information about her son, his murder, and what she and her community have done to honor her son.
In 1989 Elaine Pasqua's mother and stepfather were diagnosed with AIDS. Witnessing the ravages of this disease as she cared for them, Elaine vowed to speak out so others would not have to experience the pain and loss that twice touched her family. Her journey began after her mother’s death in 1995. She educated health and social service professionals about the psychosocial dynamics of HIV/AIDS, and discovered her passion as she worked with high school and college students. Hearing countless stories of students whose lives were changed by one inconsequential decision she broadened her research and expertise to develop one of the most powerful models for educating diverse groups about high-risk drinking, sexual responsibility, and sexual assault. Elaine's extensive work with collegiate athletes has led her to provide player development training for the NFL, NBA, NY Giants, NY Jets, Baltimore Ravens and the Philadelphia Phillies. A four time nominee for Best Speaker of the Year for Campus Activities Magazine Reader’s Choice Awards, she is a contributing writer for their “Real Life on Campus” column and contributing author to “Welcome to the Time of Your Life.” Elaine was featured in USA Today, NY1 News, Time Warner TV, and Knight Ridder News Service. She co-wrote, directed, and produced “Be Aware of the Risks of Date Rape Drugs” which has been viewed over 600,000 times on YouTube

My returning guest is Anngwyn St. Just Ph.D she specializes in Trauma in Family Systems, Nations and Cultures. We'll be delving into the diverse aspects of the GREATER FORCES that shap individuals, families, nations and the world.
We often speak of trauma in the individual nervous system, or even in the family system, less attention is paid to what might be called the “Greater Forces” which shape individual lives and family systems. More traditional views see family structures in terms of personalities and roles which have validity yet the greater forces which shape family systems for generations can be overlooked. Some of the most powerful outside forces which have shaped families, often for generations, include war, genocide, immigration, emigration, economic depression, epidemics, famine, and exposure to nuclear radiation.
Anngwyn St. Just Ph.D has written numerous books and articles in professional publications. See her many publications on her Author page at http://www.amazon.com & her website http://acst-international.com

Inspired by her experiences as a single working mother living in a marginalized community, Tanya Fields founded the BLK ProjeK in 2009 as a response to sexist institutional policies, structurally reinforced cycles of poverty, and harsh inequities in wealth and access to capital that result in far too many women being unable to rise out of poverty and sustain their families. The group was nominated for a 2011 Union Square Award and Tanya has the honor of being a Green for All Fellows, through which she connects with a national cohort of environmental justice change agents. With a Bachelor’s in Political Science from Baruch College, and a talent for public speaking, blogging and singing, Tanya has become a sought after speaker. She provided a widely praised keynote speech at the 2012 Just Food conference, and served as a plenary panelist for the 2011 conference of the Northeast Sustainable Agriculture Working Group. Previous to the BLK ProjeK, Tanya worked with several high profile environmental organizations located in the South Bronx - Mothers on the Move, Sustainable South Bronx and the Majora Carter Group. Tanya built upon the network, skills, resources and knowledge she gained through those experiences to create the BLK ProjeK. She is a reputed and rising public speaker and educator. She has spoken, conducted workshops and participated on panels at Just Food Annual Conference, NOFA NY Winter Conference, Manhattanville College, Kingsboro College, Brooklyn Food Coalition, NEWSAWG and others. She currently writes a twice monthly column on food and food justice for EBONY.com and contributed a chapter for the book "The Next Eco-Warriors" by Emily Hunter
