THE [WO]MAN RE-ELEVATED: fitting for our "SISTARS" yet informative for "MAN". The measuring stick of a nation is determined by its adherence to truth & justice. We aim to raise our own standards of women, our first teacher, to cause the rising of our people, and thereby raise the standards of our nation. JOIN US for an enlightening show where we will highlight the basics and how it affects our personal lives and, ultimately, the world around us.
Today, we have a guest panel and will discuss the issue of Grandparents raising their grandchildren. Donna M. Butts, Executive Director of Generations United (www.gu.org) and Kim Stevens, Project Director of Advocates for Family First will discuss this issue, along with Shelia and Collins who will share their story, joined by Janol who will share his experience being raised by his grandmother. Where are the mother’s and father’s? What issues plague many grandparents who are in this position, voluntarily or involuntarily? How does this affect our community? What are the solutions?
