Tonight join CWT4R co-host, Ina, Michelle and Terry and we discuss the STOP and FRISK Project in New York and the VIOLENCE IN CHICAGO. Today more children are being killed, African American and Latino youth are being hand cuffed and their life which is supposed to be just beginning comes to a complete stop. Parents are crying themselves to sleep either because their child is dead or their child is the reason another family will never get to hold theirs ever again. Are we putting our children in situations that mark them for either jail or the grave? Joining us as LeMagie Tapia a volunteer that works in this grassroots effort to educate our youth and keep them safe and alive. LeMagie will talk about how in the Bronx they are teaching young people about their rights when they are profiled, Stopped and Frisked by members of law enforcement. LeMaige is involved in the New York STOP and FRISK Project that guide youth by educating them on when they are stopped by the police to not make a bad situation worst then it has to become by knowing their rights. We will then focus on the center of attention by the media regarding violence, Chicago. Joining us tonight is Dawn Valenti, a Crisis Responder at Chicago’s Citizens for Change and Executive Director of United for a CAUSE. In 2008, United For A Cause (UFAC) was formed an organization aimed at helps women and children that have been victimized by violent crimes. Also welcome Stephanie Brown mother of Darius Brown a 13 year old shot & killed in 2011 while playing an innocent game of basketball on the south side of Chicago. Conversations and crying is being heard all over the country. Tonight a parent will be heard and now we need to LISTEN and people need to become INVOLVED.
For so long is has been silence. NOW, SILENCE IS NOT AN OPTION!

This week, "On-Air" Stop The Hate, Stop The Violence. I think that this is a topic that we need to revisit at least one a year, because things are happening all over the world. In our own neighborhoods, towns, cities. Around the world, there is violence everywhere. Not just in certain cites, cities that people often inadvertantly cite as a "problem area". We'll talk about this and see if we can't bring out more awareness about this very disturbing problem in our society. This week. "On-Air".
Whether you are a teacher, youth worker, parent, community educator, or activist, you have most likely been granted access to young people in an institution that itself reflects and may perpetuate certain forms of injustice. You may be charged with focusing on a particular area of youth behavior that adults have identified —or diagnosed—as a problem. Some of the most commonly identified problems include drug abuse, gangs, bullying, family violence, teen-dating violence and sexual assault, sexuality, media impact on youth, and the umbrella term “youth violence.” Any of these issues can serve as a lens to facilitate social-justice education. But if the focus is on fixing young people and returning them, thus fixed, to institutional environments that are oppressive to them without giving them the information and skills they need to work together to address that oppression, then the work would be better labeled “youth management” than “social justice.”
Violence is a plague in our society and it comes in many forms--gang violence, domesic violence, and gun violence just to name a few. More and more children are being injured or killed at a higher rate than medical illnesses, and the African-American community has the highest occurences. WIth all of the anti-violence advocacy groups and anti-violence movements and laws in place, why are the fatalities rising to this issue? Join me tonight at 9:00 pm EST as Kaydee interviews Chris Curry, producer/artist and creator of the amazing "Stop The Violence Movement" video series. Chris discusses the plight of violence in our neighborhoods, and the sad reality of struggling to get more involvement from the people this affects the most. Tune in at 347-327-9967.

Tonight's special guest is Mandy Trouten from South Carolina, a returning NAACA family member, child abuse survivor and anti-violence and abuse activist who does peer counseling. Ms Trouten is also the author of two books. Her first was "Maybe Today" and the second one "Shadows of Night" was published since we last saw Mandy. "I write about sexual violence because I saw it first-hand'" she says. "I have relatives and friends who are victims. I've seen first-hand the damage it can do to a person’s life, as well as the ways in which our society still ignores and even condones it." When younger, she found an anti-abuse network on MySpace where the stories of other victims/survivors and the many pages of statistics about different kinds of abuse helped her find her mission in life. Mandy writes, "More than anything, I enjoy helping victims/survivors of abuse in their path to healing. I have always said I would undo the abuse and its effects in a heartbeat, but I am grateful for the opportunity God gave me to use my experience. I grew up hearing that there's a silver lining to every cloud and I used to think 'not this one.' In time, I realized 'not this one yet.'" She goes on to say, "If I had never had to experience the undeserved attentions of classmates, my life might have been normal. I might have gotten the career in architecture that I've always dreamed of, but I would not be a part of the fight against abuse because I would know nothing about it. That's my silver lining."

Tonight's special guest is Liz Breuker from Alaska, an abuse survivor who runs a recover group that's a part of "The Lamplighters Movement" in Alaska. She says, "As a child, I grew up in an abusive, alcoholic household. The screaming, fighting, furniture breaking, front bay window to my house breaking, my mother and stepfather putting me in the middle of their hurricane-like fights constantly, ruined holidays, and me becoming a pseudo-mother to my brothers at six years old took a toll on me as a person (as a child)." Liz continues, "My entire youth was stolen from me, from two very greedy and unstable adults." She eventually went to many years of therapy and counseling, and goes on, "My life is much, much better now. I still struggle with low self-esteem at times; the anger that my stepfather instilled in me is unfortunately a part of me sometimes (I am extremely conscious of it and catch myself in those moments that I head down the same path my stepfather did in the moment of frustration/anger); I do not drink, and most importantly; I am a very loving, conscious mother to my three children." Life has been far from perfect. Liz explains, "As for present day: I am an advocate and activist for survivors of any age of child sexual abuse. Last summer, my husband's ex-wife's son was visiting with us in our home for a two-week summer break. During his entire visit, he was sexually abusing my two daughters, then aged six and four. He did many horrible things to them. My husband and I did everything humanly imaginable to bring healing and justice for our girls through the Alaska legal system. Since, I have introduced legislation to my AK Representative about child sexual abuse."

Tonight's special guest is Jody Williams from Las Vegas a survivor of child abuse, rape, domestic violence, and sex trafficking. She has been in recovery from drug addiction and the sex industry as well as mental illness since 1985. In 1987, Jody founded Sex Workers Anonymous - the first program of it's kind to help men and women across this country to exit the sex industry and/or find recovery after having left it. Their hotline has answered over 500,000 calls over the years. What started out as a small meeting in a coffee shop soon exploded to now have meeting across the USA, as well as in five other countries now. Spending five years interviewing 1,000's of recovering prostitutes and sex workers, Jody published the Recovery Guide. This is the her group's version of what is the Big Book in Alcoholics Anonymous. For decades Jody has been fighting back the legal brothels from expanding outside of their small county into both California and Nevada successfully. She put together the first ever press conference about trafficking as it exists within the legal brothels of Nevada in 2008 where she was met with violent retaliation. Many courts are using this program today as part of their probation and alternative sentencing programs, while there are local meeting in many cities and phone meetings for those who wish to remain truly "anonymous" or for those who can't travel. The SWA hotline is the only one answered by a survivor that's not connected with law enforcement. Jody has just come out with an e-book for parents on "What to do if you suspect your child is involved in prostitution" based on years of getting the same call over and over again.

Tonight's special guest is Jerome Elam, a returning NAASCA family member who's a child abuse survivor and writer for the Washington Times, Communities section. Mr Elam says, "I have struggled against many things in my life including childhood sexual abuse and somehow I found a way to survive." He recently related how, as a defenseless child, only 5-years-old, a relative forced him to be a sex slave in Florida. "I was a child desperate for affection. The relative who was a predator took advantage of that, and basically coerced me into trafficking using drugs and alcohol and threats of violence," recounted Elam. He was also coerced into child ography. To outsiders though, he says he appeared to be a normal child. He even attended school. Raised in the South, he joined the United States Marine Corps at the age of seventeen and spent the next eight years seeing the world. After his enlistment was finished he attended college and graduated to work in the Biotechnology sector. Jerome continues, "Writing is my passion and it keeps me in touch with the wealth everyone holds deep inside their hearts and minds." At NAASCA, Jerome is easily one of our favorite journalists who writes on the topics of child abuse and trauma, and we feature his articles regularly on our web site. His work for the Washington Times "Communities" section is always to the point, and he frequently takes advantage of the opportunity to explain the shocking statistics pertaining to the material in his articles. NAASCA is delighted to include Jerome Elam as a card-carrying member of the NAASCA family!
