Description: 

A special NYC performance of Secret Survivors, a play in a series by the arts organization Ping Chong and Company that draws on interviews, writings, and conversations with survivors of child sexual abuse. The performers -- themselves survivors -- tell their powerful stories of abuse, touching on issues of societal taboo, fear, and silence. Both personally cathartic and socially aware, the play "seeks to use direct personal narrative to show that this violence is epidemic, to represent the diverse ways it occurs, and grapple with the many reasons that most survivors remain silent," says Chong.

Silence -- as evidenced by the fact that only 10 percent of cases are reported -- is one of the key barriers to child sexual abuse prevention. That is why the Ms. Foundation for Women is committed to elevating the voices of survivors whose stories break through the silence that perpetuates abuse and challenge the myths that inform public understanding, policies and programs. Community-based approaches that encourage healing and honest dialogue -- like Ping Chong's innovative play -- are the first step towards building a new movement to end child sexual abuse.

Description: 

The National Women's Martial Arts Federation (NWMAF) Self-Defense Instructors Conference (SDIC) will begin on Wednesday, July 20th and, new this year, will continue through the end of Special Training (ST) Sunday, July 24th. As in the past, the Self-Defense Empowerment Model Course (SDEMC) will be led by a team of certified self-defense instructors and is required by those seeking NWMAF self-defense certification and open to those looking to learn about NWMAF's empowerment model of self-defense. SDIC is looking to create an exciting program with a balance of physical, interactive, and lecture format sessions. The goals include having a conference, which reflects the values implicit in the feminist/social justice empowerment model of self-defense. These values include the core competencies that focus on understanding the culture of violence and gender-based violence, interconnections of racism, classism, and sexism, LGBTQ inclusion and inclusion of a range of physical abilities and ages.

Description: 

This year's Harry Frank Guggenheim symposium at John Jay College focuses on America's courts and their increasingly critical role in advancing or standing in the way of criminal justice change. At both the federal and state levels, they are at the center of new, transformative approaches to public safety and justice delivery systems. At the same time, they are often the source of huge inefficiencies, backlogs and even corruption which (ironically) prevent the successful realization of such change. Symposium panels and speakers will also focus on other issues likely to dominate the conversation and policy debates (and coverage) of criminal justice in 2011 led by the continuing budget crisis that continues to affect local and state spending on public safety and corrections. Can we do more with less?
