    Promoting Economic Empowerment & Recovery through Peer Support

    in Health

    Oscar Jimenez-Solomon, MPH, Research Scientist & Research Coordinator, NYS Center of Excellence for Cultural Competence, NYS Psychiatric Institute


    Peggy Swarbrick, PhD, FAOTA, Wellness Institute Director, Collaborative Support Programs of NJ, Associate Professor, Rutgers University


    Poverty and dependency are barriers to the recovery and rehabilitation of people seeking mental health recovery. Clinicians, peer providers, consumers, families, and community services must work together to help individuals achieve financial stability and wellness.


    This talk presents lessons of the Collaborative Support Programs of NJ (CSP-NJ) in providing financial services for people in mental health recovery and examples of asset-building services available in many communities. It also describes key components of a peer-facilitated economic empowerment intervention being developed by the NYSPI Center of Excellence for Cultural Competence in partnership with the Wellness Institute at CSP-NJ, the Mental Health Peer Connection (Buffalo, NY), Baltic Street (Brooklyn, NY) and other organizations providing peer and asset-building services, such as the New York Association of Psychiatric Rehabilitation Services (NYAPRS), the United Way of Buffalo and Western NY, and the National Disability Institute.


    For more information about the Peer Supported Economic Empowerment (PSEE) project, please contact Oscar Jimenez-Solomon at: jsolomo@nyspi.columbia.edu.


     For more information about CSP-NJ's financial services and Word Wellness Newsletter, please contact Peggy Swarbrick at: pswarbrick@cspnj.org

    The Ferguson Uprising: Can Economic Empowerment Of African Americans End Racial Injustice?

    in Women

    The name Black Wallstreet conjures up images of an economicaly thriving African American community attacked and burned to the ground by jealous whites. Today's efforts to resurrect an economically thriving African American community in the wake of the recent riots in Missouri prompt the question "How Ca Econoic Empowerment of African Americans End Racial Injustice?" The disrespect of African Americans has been at the root of American politics, economics and culture, the result of the wounds of slavery that remain unhealed. Can financial affluence alone reverse attitudes of disrespect for black life? Are neighborhoods more likely to get respect from law enforcement officers if the residents are also the business owners in the community? How can a stronger economy in formerly economically depressed communities result in more tangible political gaines? What collective action will it take to circulate money into areas that are currently suffering the consequences of longtime neglect. Chicago activist Mark Allen discusses the plans for Black Wallstreet and how economic development can diffuse racial tensions end the gang violence that is often used as an excuse for excessive police force against African American youth.

    Breaking the Chains......Do You Know Your Power?

    in Motivation

    I have a dream...Celebrating Our Jubilee!


    Our forefathers and mothers planted trees from which we gather fruit, and dug wells from which we quench our thirst. Civil Rights Activist marched for us, died for us and pleaded for our equality.


    So what are we leaving behind for our communities today? What are we fostering in the minds of our Black children? How will we strengthen our families and our communities? How will we show the power of LOVE in the world? How are we Leading Change?


    Fifty years ago, Dr. King's "I Have a Dream..." Speech debuted in Detroit and transformed a nation. Today, we Celebrate our Jubilee and join in that movement, teaching us all to evolve in our beliefs, values and purpose for the elevation of our consciousness for unity of all.


    Today, it's time for us in Detroit to own the power of being the city that led the empowerment of Black Americans in this country. Dr. King spoke in this city for a reason, and now it's time for us to reinforce those actions and establish that voice of power in a greater capacity. We are still the majority of residents in this city, so we have to cease believing the negativity in the media that is designed as self-hatred towards ourselves.


    Being the majority in this city, we must leverage our numbers to translate into economic empowerment, political empowerment, and social empowerment by unifying our messages of self-worth so we confidently work together and create viable communities creating opportunities for everyone. It's time to re-evaluate ourselves, our community, and cease losing our power, by integrating the Kwanzaa principles so we are stronger as a Community and Racial group economically.


    We are powerful, and together we rise!

    Today, we are summarizing the 2015 PowerNetworking Conference hosted by Dr. George C.Fraser, author of Success Runs in Our Race. This event is to empower African-American Professionals to Learn, Earn and Return to their communities, empowering Blacks economically, psychologically, culturally and physically. 


    Being predominantly African American, the City of Detroit is an iconic city to help inspire economic empowerment, political empowerment, and social empowerment by unifying our messages of self-worth so we confidently work together and create viable communities creating opportunities for our black children. Our children must begin to see from us in their daily lives the vision that Dr. King left us with so they remain filled with hope, and pursue to excel accordingly.


    It's time to re-evaluate ourselves, our community, and cease losing our power, by strategically applying economic and marketing principles  so we are stronger as a Community economically.


    We are powerful, and together we rise!

    "The Spirit of CONSUMERISM: Why CHRISTIANS Don't Own NOTHIN'!"

    in Business

    Christians are the ultimate CONSUMERS! In particular, African American Christians are the worse!


    In an economic climate that has grossed over $500 Billion Dollars in revenue since 1990, what does the Body and Christ have to show for it? How many churches own businesses that benefit the church as a whole and not only the pastor? What investments does the church have in real estate or small business? 


    Does the church partner with small business people in their congregation and fund their dreams and visions?


    Who will take a stand and demand that the tithe be eliminated and the a general fund be created for the betterment of the entire Body?


    We goin' in on P2T this morning...We can't wait any longer!
