  • Stop Child Abuse Now (SCAN) - 1170

    in Self Help

    Tonight's special guest is Vanessa McNeal from Cedar Falls, Iowa, 22, a child abuse and sexual assault survivor, NAASCA activist and documentary filmmaker. Her goal is to help other people heal and to spread awareness on the issues of child abuse and trauma. NAASCA needs MORE young folks in recovery like Vanessa! Growing up, Vanessa a lot of family violence until she was around five years old. Her father would leave the house voluntarily or because her mom would kick him out because of the fighting. "That left me and my older sister home alone with my mom who was very involved in the party scene," she writes. "I wasn't taken to school regularly so I became far behind in school to the point where I had to be placed in a special class for kids that were behind." Vanessa goes on, "Due to the lack of parental supervision I was placed in compromising positions with compromising people. I was exposed to men and drugs. There was a lot of DHS involvement and police intervention. My needs were not met adequately." Her grandmother eventually gained custody of all four siblings. "I was molested by my 2 older female cousins and by my older sister. There were times I went years without talking to my mother. We eventually began having a consistent healthy relationship around late high school." Vanessa's doing better now. "I struggled most of my life thinking that no one would want or desire me because I thought my own mom did not." She concludes, "I am in a wonderful place in my life right now and I have never been happier."

  • LOCAL GOVERNMENT IGNORING YOU?

    in News

    LOCAL GOVERNMENT IGNORING YOU?


    Local government agencies routinely disregard the state's Public Records Act, rejecting outright — or stonewalling — requests for indisputably public information more than 75% of the time. Citizens seeking key records are forced either to abandon their pursuit of the records or to take the costly step of hiring a lawyer to sue the agencies to compel disclosure.
     
    In a recent survey, sheriffs' departments were the worst offender, denying requests for clearly public records 80% of the time. This rejection rate compared to 64% for police departments. Cities performed only slightly better, denying 60% of the requests for public documents, while school districts denied access almost 33% of the time.
     
    This public records "audit," designed to assess local government compliance with the California Public Records Act (CPRA), was undertaken by the California First Amendment Coalition (CFAC) and the Society of Professional Journalists (SPJ) and was supported by volunteer students of the journalism departments from five California universities. Under the supervision of their journalism professors, several dozen university students asked more than 130 local government agencies in the San Francisco Bay Area and the counties of Los Angeles, Orange and San Bernardino for information whose release to the public is clearly mandated by state law.
     
    The records sought were those that track responses by police to citizens' distress calls, why school boards expel students, how cities pursue health and safety violations by slumlords, and why people die in prisons, jails or simply under arrest.

    The Bully Effect

    in Family

    Being Less


     


    In today's fast paced communications era the smallest of actions can change a life within minutes.  How do we deal with the changing face of love? How do we open the hearts of the fearful? Maybe by sharing our stories and starting a dialogue that permits people to think about what one word, one sentence, one text message or one status update can do to change the life of another human being.  Could piecing together the digital moments of a couple's life over the course of a morning with only snippets of music, binaural stimulation, and silence allow you to walk, for 12 minutes, in someone else's shoes?  What would you do?  How would you respond?  Who would you become?


    Vonyse established herself as a multimedia specialist producing comedy segments for the “New Faces” of Jamie Foxx's Laffapalooza Comedy festival, as well as being an integral contributor to brand development & marketing for the festival. She has also created online content and webpages for such brands as The Beatles, The Beach Boys, Poison, Radiohead, Diana Ross, Amy Grant and more.


    In recent years Vonyse has become more involved with filmmaking. She composed the title track for the short film “Triple Minority” which Won Best Narrative International Lesbian Short Movie Award at the Annual LGBT Film Festival in Tel Aviv. She collaborated on a number of shorts, handling editing, music supervision and graphic animation. Vonyse is currently editing the feature film “Quiet As Kept”.


    “Being Less” marks the debut of Vonyse's own body of film work. And is a semi-autobiographical look at finding love and becoming fully self expressed.

    Stop Child Abuse Now (SCAN) - 1109

    in Self Help

    SPECIAL TOPIC Night - "For Our Kids" - Deborah Maddison and Tracy Baxter, Canadian activists from British Columbia, will join Bill Murray to lead this evening's discussion about the Rights of Children and Families in North America. Tonight's TOPIC: "The Corrupt Business of Supervised Visitation and Custody Evaluation" It is becoming more and more common for good, safe parents to be ordered to see their children only under 'professional supervision', even when there has been no abuse involved. It is also becoming commonplace for parents going through family court custody cases to be forced to pay a 'custody evaluator' to assess their situation and advise the courts what they believe is 'in the child's best interest'. Sadly, more and more we are finding that these services are strictly cash flow businesses for the divorce industry,and are often run by incompetent or worse - criminals. There are even documented cases where the judges who make the orders are themselves financially invested in and profiting from these businesses. ~~ Every two weeks a new THEME will be presented in this series, with frequent special guests speaking from their own experience. ~~ Please see our web page at: www.NAASCA.org/ForOurKids or write to: naasca.forourkids@gmail.com

    . To open up the ST FRANCIS SAFE HAVEN SANCTUARY FOR ABUSED AND HOMELESS DOGS AND CATS.... My dreams of this have been so long I can draw every brick and floor plan of this place...
    It will have 2 huge wrought iron gate s with one gate having a picture of Jesus petting a huge dog and the other gate will have Jesus with cats all around his feet while he holds one.......as you drive in there will be a huge ST FRANCIS statue/water fountain where people can throw coins in and pray for those Animals who are not safe yet. Those coins will be a part of the funding to get animals from other areas. As you enter the building a front desk will be straight ahead. As you look down you will see paw prints of dogs go to one side of it and cats to the other. That is because each will dominate a side of the building. Dogs to the left cats to the right.. This building will have 2 studio apartments free to vet students who would like to help with the animals under a supervision of a licensed Vet during their semesters.   THIS IS just a small piece of the story. PLEASE GO TO GO FUND ME site for complete story .
