VanHook, II as Executive Director Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Ya no son extranjeros: Un diálogo acerca de inmigración Una conversación de Zoom June 22 @ 7 p.m. ET [Anglican Communion News Service] “The statistics on gender-based violence in Zambia are appalling,” says Grace Mazala Phiri, national programmes director for the Anglican Church in Zambia.As an example she cited a survey conducted in Chipata, a town in Eastern Zambia, from January to March last year. “[This] revealed that within three months alone more than 1,000 women were victims of battering, while over 50 women were raped.“Cases of child abuse were more than 100, with 12 people reported as having died as a result of gender-based violence.”Zambia, is not the only country in Africa that struggles with gender-based violence. It is an issue that cuts across culture, race, religion and socio-economic status. It is defined by the Southern African Development Protocol on Gender and Development as: “All acts perpetuated against women, men, boys and girls on the basis of their sex which causes or could cause them physical, sexual, psychological, emotional or economic harm, including the threat to take such acts…”In reality, it is women and children who suffer most from gender-based violence, which has recently found itself under the international spotlight, especially following two cases of gang-rape, mutilation and murder of women in India and South Africa. The death of 17-year-old South African Anene Booysen has put pressure on Africa to be more proactive in addressing gender-based violence.Long before Booysen’s tragic death, Anglicans were taking steps to address the issue.Phiri said, “Anglicans are taking action to support women and rebuild relationships, so women can reclaim their streets, their communities, their places of work – even their homes – as places which they can use in safety.”While violence and injustice have existed for a long time in homes and even in the church, God’s people have “always had the God-given mandate to protect people that have been unfairly treated and ensure that justice prevails at all times,” Phiri said.On Feb. 11, the Church of the Province of Central Africa (CPCA) held a seminar in Lusaka, Zambia, to discuss gender issues affecting the church and to plan for International Women’s Day (March 8), an occasion which the church sees as an opportunity for women to “reclaim public spaces” in the face of the rising human rights abuses.“We are seeing a rise in gender-based violence against women and girls,” said Faith Gandiya, president of the Mothers’ Union in the Diocese of Harare and a delegate at the seminar. “One of my biggest concerns is that clergy and their wives need to be aware and be able to help people to prevent such occurrences [while] supporting people who are victims.“The Church in Africa still has a long way to go in terms of dealing with issues of gender-based violence because of culture,” she said. “We need to lift ourselves over and above the culture where women are forbidden from talking too much and are supposed to always listen to what a man says. The Church [in Africa] works within this cultural context which is difficult to deal with.”Gender-based violence can have devastating consequences for the victims, including physical, sexual, and mental harm and suffering and, in the worst cases, death. It is widespread in the Southern African region and thus presents what Gandiya says is a “major obstacle to attaining gender equality and equity which are fundamental human rights.”Phiri admitted that she had seen a lot of devastating incidences of gender-based violence during her work in the communities. “We have decided to work with women in rural areas because most of them don’t have enough information as regards their rights because of poor information flow,” she said.The conference delegates acknowledged the many complications that hinder the effective handling of gender-based violence. “Cases within the family are the most difficult to deal with for fear of embarrassment. Most families would rather deal with such issues silently,” she said.Another complication within families in Africa is that gender issues impinge on aspects of “culture and bread and butter.” Phiri said, “With men being the breadwinners in most families, women who have been abused by their husbands will try to avoid the police because they would not want to have their husbands incarcerated despite their pain and suffering.”At the root of gender-based violence are issues of power. A woman who is adequately empowered is placed to deal with physical and emotional abuse. Archbishop Albert Chama, primate of the CPCA who was also present at the meeting, said there is a huge opportunity for the church to act through the engagement of the people at the grassroots.“It’s at the grassroots that the church really is, and by touching the lives of those who are downtrodden, we make the Gospel alive and real. We need to support women all the way until the goal of equality is achieved in all spheres of life: education and property ownership,” he explained.On a continent where traditionally women were never encouraged to own personal property and girls were encouraged to do household chores while the boys went to school, empowerment of women still remains one of the biggest challenges. Thus, the CPCA has decided to work with women through literacy and economic empowerment programs.“We decided to take up programs related to development and gender. We are empowering women to increase their household incomes. We give them loans using a revolving fund with a minimal interest rate. Some of them are keeping livestock and are into farming,” Phiri explained. “We also empower them by monitoring their health so that they are not incapacitated. They are also taught how to read and write which is important for them to gain some degree of independence.”Participants at the meeting, who were drawn from Zimbabwe, Zambia and Malawi, shared experiences and discussed the cultural attitudes to the issue. Specifically they looked at the kind of language that perpetuates gender-based violence, especially against women.The Rev. Canon Christopher Mwawa, general secretary of the Anglican Council of Malawi, said, “Traditional African [sayings] such as ‘This man is as talkative as a woman’ only reinforce the already existing stereotypes against women [and] should be avoided at all costs.”The archbishop encouraged everyone to learn from one another. He said those present should also convince the government in their countries to see the church as “a partner in development” in order to encourage the political will in dealing with the many issues of gender-based violence.“Many people and organizations in Africa have talked about human rights, especially those of women and children, but the church has not been coming out strongly in its advocacy,” said Chama. “We have to be vigilant and make sure that the voice of the church is heard when we speak on behalf of the downtrodden.The archbishop believes that effective engagement of disadvantaged people will “permeate every home, community, congregation” because “people will be made to realize that they have the potential to change their own circumstances from negative to positive for good.” Rector Bath, NClast_img read more

(Messenger Staff Photo/Thomas Graning)Johnson Center revisits popular exhibit themeTwo years ago, the Johnson Center for the Arts in Troy brought together more than 60 Alabama artists who were recipients of the prestigious Alabama State Council on the Arts Fellowship Awards for the “Celebrating Contemporary Arts: The Nature of Being Southern” exhibition.The exhibit was the first time for such a large group of Alabama artists to exhibit together. The exhibition was extremely successful and generated a great amount of interested in the artists who call Alabama home and their work. Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration Pike County Sheriff’s Office offering community child ID kits Troy falls to No. 13 Clemson Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day Next Up“Through the Celebrating Contemporary Arts exhibition many people were introduced to the vast amount of artistic talent that we have here in Alabama,” said Richard Metzger, Johnson Center executive director. “We had visitors from all across the state and beyond. Many of them were surprised that a town the size of Troy would have such an incredible exhibit.”The Celebrating Contemporary Arts exhibition placed the Johnson Center for the Arts in the same standing with galleries in larger cities in Alabama and in the South. The local arts center continues to receive high marks for its outstanding year round exhibits.Metzger, his staff and board of directors are committed to continuing to meet those standards of excellence and he has no doubt that the exhibition that opens Aug. 17 will meet and exceed expectations. “Because of the success of Celebrating Contemporary Arts exhibition, we decided to make the Alabama artists’ exhibition a biennial event,” Metzger said. “‘Celebrating Contemporary Arts: The Biennial’ will bring together Alabama artists who are recipients of the ASCA Fellowship Awards. These Fellowships may be awarded annually to two artists in each discipline. However, if the state arts council determines that the art in a discipline is not strong enough, there will be no awards in that discipline for that year.“So, these artists are some of the best in the state and also are recognized outside of Alabama for their talents,” Metzger said. “The Celebrating Contemporary Arts: The Biennial features more than 60 Alabama artists and more than 120 pieces of artwork – sculpture, pottery, ceramics, oil and acrylic paintings and some assemblages.“No matter what one’s interest in art, there will be something in this exhibit to capture his or her interest. There is something for all ages. I would say that all of those who view this exhibit will come away having found at least three pieces that captured and held their interest.”Metzger said the 50 local teachers who attended the ArtBridges summer workshop sponsored by the Johnson Center this summer will benefit from the exhibit as they use art as a bridge between subject areas.

Tropical Storm Isaias lashes Puerto Rico, has path towards US East Coast

first_imgABC NewsBy DANIEL MANZO, ABC News(NEW YORK) — Tropical Storm Isaias continues its path through the Caribbean leaving intense flooding in Puerto Rico.Multiple municipalities on the west and east side of the island have been hit the hardest by the storm.On the west side of the island at least 41 people have been rescued amid the flooding, Puerto Rico National Guard Gen. Jose Reyes told ABC News.Officials are still visiting affected areas in the island as intense showers continue Thursday evening.A woman’s car was swept away by water in Rincón, on the west side of the U.S. territory. The head of the island’s Emergency Management Service confirmed at a press conference that they are still looking for her, though her car has been found.Heavy rain and intense flooding have led to destruction in communities that were already vulnerable due to the earthquakes.About 400,000 families are without power and at least 150,000 are without water.The island’s power authority executive director, Jose Ortiz, said most customers should have power “within today or tomorrow.”As the island is facing multiple emergencies, Reyes told ABC News that one of his main worries is how they’ve had to stretch their resources.“It’s concerning when you have a certain number of resources and you have two, three and four battles to fight” Reyes said. Amid the storm, Puerto Rico is still trying to recover from Hurricane Maria and ongoing earthquakes while fighting the COVID-19 pandemic.There are currently 22 shelters opened with over 60 people — following social distancing guidelines.Tropical Storm Isaias has now reached Dominican Republic, as it continues its path toward the East Coast of the U.S.Isaias will likely be near the Turks and Caicos Islands and southern Bahamas on Friday.Some fluctuation in intensity is expected as the storm interacts with the more mountainous terrain if Hispaniola.If the storm can maintain its organization and some intensity past Hispaniola, there will be some opportunity for strengthening on Friday and Saturday as the storm moves through the warm waters near the Bahamas and east of Florida.Isaias will bring tropical storm force winds of over 50 mph to Puerto Rico, Dominican Republic, Haiti and the Turks and Caicos Islands.Locally 4 to 8 inches of rainfall is expected across these Caribbean Islands, which could cause flash flooding and mudslides.Over the last 24 hours, some of the model consensus has shifted eastward as the track has shifted eastward. Once the storm passes Hispaniola, there will be a better understanding of how this storm will behave as it moves towards the United States.If the storm manages to stay east of Florida and avoid a tremendous amount of land interaction, conditions may be conducive for some strengthening off the Southeast coast line.Water temperatures are very warm along nearly the entire U.S. East Coast and that will help the storm maintain intensity or gain strength slightly.This is reflected in the official forecast track. The cone of uncertainty includes the possibility of the storm staying just offshore and traveling along the East Coast into early next week.If this happens, there could be some impacts to the Georgia, the Carolinas and perhaps the Mid-Atlantic and into part of the Northeast.Regardless of the exact forecast track, impacts from Isaias remain quite possible along the East Coast even though the exact location and magnitude of the these impacts remains uncertain.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.
