SORT BY Relevancy
According to Corey Whelan a freelance writer in New York for the Examiner, statistically, in more then one third of households containing a working firearm, far more individuals, especially children, are accidentally shot. In addition to the number of children wounded or killed by firearms, women also disproportionately find themselves at the wrong end of a gun in their own homes, with a current or former romantic partner typically pulling the trigger. According to a report filed by the Washington Sate Department of Social Health Services, a child or teen is killed once every seven and a half hours with a gun, either by accident or by suicide. In 72 percent of these cases, the firearm used was housed in the victim's own residence. Join us as we discuss this issue.

After her son’s negative reaction to seeing news reports of the tragic shooting at Sandy Hook elementary school, Keba saw an education opportunity. Emphasizing the importance of her son’s voice, Keba encouraged him of “speaking out” against things that seemed suspicious or dangerous. Keba didn’t stop by teaching her own kids about safety, she then published a children’s book entitled: Don’t Snooze On Clues! (2014), which encourages ALL children to “speak out.” The book is a fun and easy way for educators and parents alike to start what can be considered a “difficult” conversation on safety.
Keba has shifted her career focus full-time to protecting the welfare of children across the country. She visits schools, camps, libraries, and after-school programs encouraging and teaching children the book’s theme (and New York City’s slogan) “If you see something, say something.”
Keba Cairo lives in the New York City area with her two amazing children and husband.

AFTER SAFETY COMES MONEY
After safety, money is probably one of the biggest concerns for domestic violence victims. Not just how to get some, but how to spend it, how to protect it, how to do what you have to do to record it, pay taxes on it, and protect it. That’s one place where the Jennifer Beach Foundation comes in.
Keith Beach is founder and president of the Jennifer Beach Foundation where he has served since December 2001. The organization provides education, advocacy, and assistance for those affected by child abuse and domestic violence. One of the ways the group helps is by offering its free Hope and Power classes to help survivors figure out personal finances like budgeting, credit reports, borrowing, housing, financial aid and employment.
Join us as we talk about finances, taxes, operating a foundation to help abuse victims, and even how to start an organization to help victims and survivors.

Sylvia Lafair, Ph.D. is President of Creative Energy Options, Inc. (CEO), a global consulting company that
targets and transforms workplace patterns for success. Sylvia has hiked the Inca Trail into Machu Picchu, has eaten indiscernible stew in the Amazon, and bungee jumped in New Zealand. When she lands long enough, she writes books, gives speeches, and leads seminars. Sylvia, ever the pioneer, retooled her skills as a noted family therapist to become a leadership expert and executive coach. In the workplace she helps teams find the sweet spot of cooperation and productivity.
Dr. Lafair’s programs and executive coaching helps decrease conflict and increase cooperation in the workplace. Her award winning book ‘Don’t Bring It to Work’ (Jossey-Bass 2009) is listed as one of the top nine books for every boss to read; one of the top twenty books for emerging leaders, and has won ten awards nationally and internationally.
Dr. Lafair’s research shows that, much as we like to believe that our behavior is entirely rational, our thoughts and actions are often driven by the roles we learned in our families as children for safety and survival. Under pressure, we tend to revert to old patterns, often creating workplace drama that diverts attention from business and undermines productivity.
Other award winning books are: ‘GUTSY: How Women Leaders Make Change,’ (earning six book awards), and Dr. Lafair’s newest book, ‘UNIQUE: How Story Sparks Diversity, Inclusion, and Engagement’ (with two book awards to date and counting).
