SORT BY Relevancy
Generation after generation,our Black families have suffered through slavery, poverty, and drug addictions.
With that being said, there have been instances where Black children have been placed in the system under the umbrella of foster care and then sometimes adoption. What is the system like that has been taken from their family? Does it matter that their are cultural differences between what white people think and what Black people think is different such as the way you discipline your child? What is a CASA or Guardian Ad litem?
We will discuss this matter and discuss how we can be more involved in caring for our own.
Join us as we talk with Nisa Wheeler, CEO and Founder of En'viZHen, LLC. Nisa will share her experiences working in foster care system and the "Parent House" project she is sponsoring to support these special blended families in the Atlanta Metropolitan area. Listen in and learn more about the foster care system and what you can do to partner with Nisa in supporting these families too.

Today, our topic will be about Stud/Butches and how will they rank up, in the lesbian community in the near future. This question of the evening is...The Stud/Butch image, is it softening up or dying away?
Could it really be, that the "Stud/Butch" image is disappering from the Lesbian Community altogether? And if so, could this be, the main reason for the Stud/Butches on Stud love these days?
Studs/Butches need love too, right?

In the U.S. and estimated 400,000 children are living without permanent families in the foster care system. 100,000 of these children are eligible for adoption, but nearly 32% of these children will wait over three years in foster care before being adopted.
Statistics indicate that children from foster care make up 30% of the homeless population and are 30% more likely to be incarcerated before the age of 19. In addition, young ladies are 2X more likely to become pregnant.
