    The William Grant Still Arts Center - Fun and Games: The 42nd Annual Black Doll Show

     

    Join us for a discussion on the history of The William Grant Still Arts Center in Los Angeles, and a preview of this year's annual exhibition featuring dolls, games, quilts and multi-media art.

    Join the conversation with our speaker:

    Amitis Motevalli is the director of the William Grant Still Arts Center, a multi-arts exhibition and educational space focusing on community histories and broadening canons through the arts. The William Grant Still Arts Center is a facility of the City of Los Angeles, Department of Cultural Affairs. Amitis is also a multimedia artist born in Iran. Within her practice as an artist, she explores the culture and survival of people living in poverty, conflict and/or war. Her experience as a trans-national migrant is foundational in her work. Motevalli is invested in research, collaboration, and the potential of art to expand thought.

    As the director of the William Grant Still Arts Center, Motevalli has broadened the pedagogical and exhibition programming by bringing a focus to grassroots archives, in particular within South Central Los Angeles. She also directed a city wide program called LA/Islam Arts Inititative in partnership with the Doris Duke Foundation. Motevalli is now also responsible for the upcoming Charmette Bonpua Art and Cultural Center, a satellite space to the William Grant Still Arts Center, with a specific arts focus on exhibition, education and a repository of South Central Los Angeles Archives. She currently lives and works in Los Angeles exhibiting art internationally.

    Carolfrances Likins: Fair Trade Gift-Giving as Acts of Solidarity

    When you start gift shopping – whether your traditional gift-giving time will be this December or next April – will your money go to enrich a capitalist corporation? Or will it go straight to a village or town where women and men will put it toward a school, a clinic, a water purification system, or whatever else the workers vote to use it on after paying themselves the agreed-on amount?

    Most Fair Trade producers are women and men who have broken out of the capitalist hold by forming worker-owned co-ops. No bosses. And in place of the profiteering middle-man, Fair Trade companies form long-term relationships with the workers, buying at a fair price, and selling to us through a non-profit store chain like Ten Thousand Villages, small shops, pop-up bazaars, websites, or in some cases major stores.

    From bars of chocolate to major gifts, what we give makes a difference in the world.

    We will see a large array of gifts available through Fair Trade networks. You might want to screenshot some of them, so if you don’t know how to do this, you might want to learn beforehand.

    Join the conversation with our speaker:



    Carolfrances Likins is a retired teacher with three decades in elementary schools of Watts and Compton. She has traveled as an internationalist to places where people ask for our solidarity, from Latin America to the Middle East.

    She is a board member of Interfaith Communities United for Justice and Peace.

    30 Years Teaching in Watts and Compton

    What can we learn from the lessons that many students in Watts and Compton taught their teacher? And what lessons developed there could be used by teachers and their advocates in other working class environments? When children feel powerless, and when some among them feel that acting out and disrupting their classrooms is their only means to feel empowered, how can we heal them with hope and the knowledge of other paths?

    CarolfrancesCarolfrances Likins taught elementary school for about three decades, mostly in Compton and Watts, where she sometimes was supported by the administrations, sometime strongly opposed by them, as she strove to be a catalyst to her students discovering what their cultures have in common with those of others. She will share stories of her lessons and their learnings.

    Only days after the devastating 9/11 attacks, the late Rev. George F. Regas brought together Christians, Jews, Muslims, Quakers, humanists and people of many faiths and beliefs to found Interfaith Communities United for Justice and Peace. Acutely aware that this dire moment posed a grave threat to peace and justice, George knew instinctively that peacemakers needed to create a place to gather, organize, pray, and act together united by the fundamental principle that Religious Communities Must Stop Blessing War and Violence.

    Since its founding, ICUJP has remained true to George's vision. Meeting at over 1,000 Friday Forums, ICUJP has heard from speakers from all over the world; organized mass demonstrations, vigils, and acts of civil disobedience; presented numerous conferences and webinars; held an annual Close Guantanamo rally; sent many delegations to meet with elected officials; issued a variety of statements, petitions and policy papers on a wide range of international and domestic issues; provided scholarships to deserving peace activists; supported the work of our allies in the cause of peace and racial and economic justice; and provided a loving, safe, and compassionate home for anyone committed to the struggle to replace war with peace and oppression with justice.

    Announcing the 2022 Honorees!

     

    DoloresCo-founder of the United Farm Workers Association, Dolores Clara Fernandez Huerta is one of the most influential labor activists of the 20th century and a leader of the Chicano civil rights movement.  

    Born on April 10, 1930 in Dawson, New Mexico, Huerta was the second of three children of Alicia and Juan Fernandez, a farm worker and miner who became a state legislator in 1938. Her parents divorced when Huerta was three years old, and her mother moved to Stockton, California with her children. Huerta’s grandfather helped raise Huerta and her two brothers while her mother juggled jobs as a waitress and cannery worker until she could buy a small hotel and restaurant. Alicia’s community activism and compassionate treatment of workers greatly influenced her daughter.

    The recipient of many honors, Huerta received the Eleanor Roosevelt Human Rights Award in 1998 and the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2012. As of 2015, she was a board member of the Feminist Majority Foundation, the Secretary-Treasurer Emeritus of the United Farm Workers of America, and the President of the Dolores Huerta Foundation.

     

    Steve EarlSteve Earle is one of the most acclaimed singer-songwriters of his generation. A protege of legendary songwriters Townes Van Zandt and Guy Clark, he quickly became a master storyteller in his own right, with his songs being recorded by Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings, Joan Baez, Emmylou Harris, The Pretenders, and countless others. 1986 saw the release of his debut record, Guitar Town, which shot to No. 1 on the Country Charts and is now regarded as a classic of the Americana genre. Subsequent releases like The Revolution Starts...Now (2004), Washington Square Serenade (2007), and TOWNES (2009) received consecutive GRAMMY® Awards. Restlessly creative across artistic disciplines, Earle has published both a novel and a collection of short stories; produced albums for other artists such as Joan Baez and Lucinda Williams, and acted in films, television (including David Simon’s acclaimed The Wire), and on the stage. He currently hosts a radio show for Sirius XM. 

    In 2009, Earle made his off-Broadway theatre debut in the play Samara, for which he also wrote a score that The New York Times described as “exquisitely subliminal.” Earle wrote music for and appeared in Coal Country, a riveting public theater play that dives into the most-deadly mining disaster in U.S. history, for which he was nominated for a Drama Desk Award. Earle was also previously nominated for a Primetime Emmy in 2010 for Outstanding Music and Lyrics in the drama series Treme. 

    His 2020 album Ghosts of West Virginia was named as one of “The 50 Best Albums of 2020 So Far” by Rolling Stone. Mr. Earle was recently (Nov. 2020) inducted into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame, and released his 21st studio album J.T. in January 2021 as an homage to his late son Justin Townes Earle. In May 2022, Earle released his most recent album Jerry Jeff, a 10-track collection comprised of hit tracks and deep-cuts from Jerry Jeff Walker to pay tribute to the colorful cowboy troubadour who passed away in October 2021.

    Beyond Linear Thinking

    Many of the conflicts, divisions, and problems we confront individually, socially, and globally can be traced to the linear, hierarchical, competitive thinking we have been doing for 5,000 years. A new way of thinking is being used by the military, aviation, corporations, and governments to create a more cooperative, kinder, and effective way of relating to each other. Linda Seger will talk about this new thinking model she calls Web Thinking, based on the spider web and world wide web. 

    Join the discussion with our speaker:

    WHY WE NEED TO TEACH PEACE AND JUSTICE IN AMERICA’S PUBLIC SCHOOLS

    Description: Just when students in the United States are most in need of learning the best and the worst in American history, the right of teachers to teach free of censorship and government interference is under assault.

    Join us for a timely discussion exploring these vital issues. Why do students deserve to learn about peace and justice, as much as reading, writing, and arithmetic? How has the American educational system addressed the teaching of peace and justice and how can it do a better job? What happens to teachers who try to teach outside the patriotic boundaries of permitted material? How has the training of teachers in the United States perpetuated White Supremacy? What’s behind efforts in Congress and state legislatures to ban the teaching of The 1619 Project, Critical Race Theory, and a People’s History of the United States? How can we fight back? https://www.aclu.org/press-releases/florida-educators-and-students-file-lawsuit-challenging-stop-woke-censorship-law

    Description: This presentation will take place on the 100th anniversary month of Howard Zinn’s birth on August 24, 1922, in Brooklyn. Although Howard died in 2010, his work continues to inform and inspire educators around the world. His most popular book, A People’s History of the United States, has sold more than 4 million copies.

    We will hear from two people who play a leadership role with initiatives designed to carry on and expand the work of Howard Zinn and other people's historians -- Voices of a People's History and the Zinn Education Project. They will describe their work in the context of these times, including how an increasing number of teachers and students are committed to education beyond the confines of a traditional textbook. This interest in learning honestly about the history of white supremacy is being met by an orchestrated attack by the right wing with draconian laws and McCarthy like teacher hit lists. In this Howard Zinn Centennial year, learn what you can do to defend the teaching of people's history.

    CLUE: Building Our Faith-Rooted Community for Worker, Immigrant and Racial Justice

    Description: For almost 30 years, Clergy & Laity United for Economic Justice has been educating, mobilizing and organizing the faith community of Southern California to take sustained and transformative action for worker justice in solidarity with our union and labor movement partners. We are incredibly proud of how we met the moment time and again during the past few years of the Trump and Biden eras with powerful actions and campaigns, while also extending into our work a profound value of immigrant and racial justice. Join us this Friday morning, July 22 as we celebrate the incredible work that CLUE and UNITE HERE! Local 11 have done already in 2022, for example our successful campaign to pass the Hotel Worker Protection Ordinance in the City of LA, and offer to the interfaith community the electrifying opportunity to join us in building power for justice in the coming years. 

    Join the discussion with our speaker:

    Matthew HomMatthew Hom (he/him) is the Faith-Rooted Organizer in Los Angeles and Santa Monica at CLUE (Clergy & Laity United for Economic Justice). He grew up in a multiracial and interfaith Chinese and Ashkenazi Jewish family in Cerritos, studied history and music at UC Irvine, and earned a Master’s in Jewish Studies at NYU. Since pursuing a career in social justice organizing, he has worked with the California Democratic Party and CAIR on electoral campaigns and Census outreach, and served in volunteer leadership roles with Jewish progressive organizations. In his role at CLUE, he organizes clergy and congregational leaders from diverse faith traditions as they build communities of action for economic and racial justice, and in solidarity with workers and immigrants. Matthew teaches Hebrew School at Temple Isaiah, is a member of the Boyle Heights Chavurah, and serves on the Grant Advisory Committee of the Jews of Color Initiative. He feels called by his faith and identities to help build a vibrant and transformative multiracial democracy in Southern California.

    Description: Join Maraky from BAJI (Black Alliance for Just Immigration) as they share the current state of Black migrants in CA and at the US-Mexico border. Black migrants continue to be under attack due to rampant anti-Blackness across the Americas. Come and learn about the harm that the United States is exporting to other countries with its racist policies & practices.

    Speaker:

    Maraky Alemseged

    Maraky Alemseged is BAJI’s Los Angeles Organizer. She is a second-generation Ethiopian immigrant who was born and bred in Los Angeles to two revolutionaries.

    As a result, Maraky has spent her lifetime challenging unjust systems of oppression with the knowledge that “the personal is political and the political is personal.” Their nascent professional career is built atop years of community organizing, with heavy involvement in local, national, and international Black migrant communities. Maraky is a Pan-African abolitionist and believes in approaching social justice issues from an intersectional lens.

     

    Here's how YOU can help:

    Call on your Senators and the Biden administration to immediately put an end to racist policies like Title 42 and offer permanent protections for Black migrants. Read BAJI's newest report on racist immigration policies that trap Black migrants in Mexico. The report will be launched on BAJI's website on World Refugee Day (Monday 6/20).

    United to House LA: Why Housing Should Be a Human Right!

    (SCROLL DOW TO RSVP FOR ZOOM LINK)

    Description: Discussion of “United to House LA”ballot measure, which if passed will create the largest investment in affordable housing in the history of the City of Los Angeles. This presentation will cover the background, current status, and potential future impacts of this important local ballot measure – as well as how it relates to the larger goals of ending housing insecurity, advancing a right to housing, and ending criminalization of poverty. There will also be Q & A and several opportunities to take action.

    Speaker:

    Kath Rogers is a staff attorney on the ACLU SoCal Dignity for All project where she works to advance the rights of unhoused community members through litigation and policy advocacy.

    Prior to joining the ACLU, Kath served as Program Manager and Adjunct Professor at the University of Southern California, helping to launch and develop Agents of Change: Civil Rights Advocacy Initiative - a first of its kind undergraduate clinical program. She also served as Executive Director of the National Lawyers Guild Los Angeles where she collaborated with coalition partners and stakeholders to advance policies relating to free speech, housing justice, and labor and immigrant rights. 

    Kath also maintained a solo legal practice focused on civil rights cases. Her legal work included defending unhoused clients and activists, as well as co-counseling on a federal constitutional class action lawsuit, Arundel v. City of San Diego, challenging criminalization of houselessness, which resulted in a settlement to change discriminatory policing practices.

    Kath graduated with High Honors from Thomas Jefferson School of Law in San Diego and received her BA in History with Provost Honors from the University of California San Diego. Prior to her law career, Kath worked as a community organizer for more than a decade on local and state campaigns to advance social justice.

     

    Here's how you can help:

    Learn more about “United to House LA,” follow the campaign on social media, help to gather endorsements for the campaign, and help with voter outreach and get-out-the-vote efforts. As we approach the election, it will be important to tell friends and family members to vote yes on this measure.

    How Anti-Muslim Animus is Fueling the Great Replacement Conspiracy Theory

    Description: The discussion will center around the narrative of the replacement theory that is being pushed by right-wing media, that Jews are financing Muslim immigrants to take over America. This theory began in Europe when a French ethno-nationalist coined the idea of “Eurabia” and is spreading around the globe. Working together toward a pluralistic democracy is the counter-narrative that deflates the idea that Muslims are here to replace white civilization.

    Speaker:

    Salam

    Salam Al-Marayati is President and co-founder of the Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC). Nationally recognized for his commitment to improving the public understanding of Islam and policies impacting American Muslims, he oversees MPAC’s groundbreaking civic engagement, public policy, and advocacy work.
    An expert on Islam in the West, Muslim reform movements, human rights, democracy, national security, and Middle East politics, Salam has spoken at the White House, on Capitol Hill, and represented the U.S. at international human rights and religious freedom conferences.
    Salam is an adjunct faculty member at Bayan Claremont, a board member of the Muslim Reform Institute, and an advisor to several
    political, civic, and academic institutions seeking to understand the role of Islam and Muslims in America and throughout the world.
    Deeply involved in interfaith activities, Salam was co-chair of the Interfaith Coalition to Heal Los Angeles, which formed in the wake of the 1992 uprisings.
    Salam’s writings have appeared in every major national news publication including the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Washington Post, and Los Angeles Times. He has been interviewed on
    national and international news outlets including CNN, MSNBC, Fox News and C-SPAN.

    ICUJP can help by uniting with us to build a movement to silence false narratives about other humanities.

    PLEASE SUPPORT ICUJP'S FERVENT CALL THAT RELIGIOUS COMMUNITIES MUST STOP BLESSING WAR AND VIOLENCE BY MAKING A GENEROUS DONATION


    Event collage

    DONATE TO ICUJP

    As Interfaith Communities United for Justice and Peace enters its third decade and as war and violence and injustice wreak havoc around the world and in our own country, we are so grateful to our supporters who have helped sustain our work educating and advocating for the cause of justice and peace. With a small part-time staff and lots of volunteers, your donations help us meet our budget and expand our reach.

    ICUJP began the year on January 11 with our 17th annual Close Guantanamo Rally in front of the Federal Building in Downtown Los Angeles (and live-streamed on social media) condemning the ongoing human rights violations at the infamous detention center, featuring speakers from the ACLU of Southern California, the National Lawyers Guild, Code Pink, Out Against War, American Muslims for Palestine, Jewish Voice for Peace, and the Council on American Islamic Relations. 

    So far this year alone we have presented a series of exceptional Friday Forums exploring:

     

    In addition, our Anti-racism Committee meets each week (except the third Friday) immediately after the Friday Forum to explore how ICUJP can initiate a broad interfaith movement to challenge systemic racism. This gives us the intersectionality of covering the problem in all its forms: racism in policing, health care, housing, the economy, the military, the environment, and every other aspect of society. We have and will continue to organize public events and gatherings. 

    We know that you are asked to support a wide array of worthy organizations.  All we ask is that you include ICUJP among them with as generous a contribution as you can afford. 

    We are especially grateful to whose who can make a sustaining monthly donation of $5, $10, $25, $50, or $100. If you're able to give an annual contribution of $250, $500, or $1,000, it would allow us to mount more events and conferences throughout the year.  If you belong to a congregation or organization, please explore whether they can make a donation or grant.  

     

     

     

     

    We appreciate your contributions, large and small, monthly or annually.  We have been in this struggle for over twenty years, and, with your help, we are committed to continuing our work so long as war, violence, and injustice plague humanity and obstruct the search for justice and peace.

    Thank you for your generous support.

    The Actors’ Gang (TAG) Prison Project

    (SCROLL DOWN AND RSVP FOR LINK)

    Description: The Actors’ Gang (TAG) Prison Project is a nationally recognized rehabilitation program launched in response to California’s huge recidivism rate and extreme overcrowding in 2006. Our program starts as a 7-day, 4-hours a day, intensive theatrical arts program which transitions to an ongoing weekly peer-led class managed by the program director and overseen by the teaching artists.  The program uses a highly physical and emotional style of theater as a tool to create a safe space for participants to develop self-assurance, self-respect, acceptance of others and community, while fostering core/soft skills and promoting personal responsibility, “I am a master of my mind, not a victim of my thinking.”

    This year we will be running 16 programs inside 14 California state prisons.

    To date more than 1700 incarcerated people have participated in The Prison Project.

    FACTS:

    • Impact Justice reports an 89% decrease in disciplinary incidents, known as 115’s, for participants who have completed our program.
    • According to CDCR preliminary analysis, people who have completed our program have a 10.6% recidivism rate.

    Speakers:

    Ezequiel Gonzalez

    Ezequiel Gonzalez My name is Ezequiel Gonzalez Lemus. I am 29 years old. I was detained at 15 years old and sentenced to 23-years in state prison. After 12-years, I was commuted, released, and deported back to my native country, Mexico. Since my release a year and a half ago, I dedicated what I gained in prison to serve my community. I teach free art classes at a local community center, I'm starting my Mexican food business, and together with a group of women, I am founding Comedia del Arte Tecate, a theater company based on The Actors' Gang Prison Project.

    Henry Palacio

    Henry Palacio   My name is Henry Palacio and I was introduced to The Actors' Gang in 2017 and participated in 2019. This is the first time I was able to tap into the four states of emotion: Happy, Sad, Angry & Fear. Together with the states and exercises, I was able to utilize the skill to navigate my institutional behavior and navigate my re-entry to society. Now I mirror the compassion that was demonstrated to me by the Teaching Artists who continue to teach me.  I give this same compassion to incarcerated youth and adults.  Actors' Gang is being utilized as an intervention to slow the pipeline to incarceration.

    John Dich

    John Dich -  My Name is John Dich. I joined The Actors’ Gang Prison Project in 2016 while serving a life sentence. During my participation while incarcerated, TAG gave me tools to reconnect to the lost individual I was. I developed soft skills, with an emphasis on how to properly manage my emotions which I utilized daily. Since my release in 2019, I was hired onto The Actors’ Gang Staff as the Alumni Advocacy Coordinator, continuing to serve those incarcerated and released back into society.

    Montrell Harrell

    Montrell Harrell - My name is Montrell Harrell, and I am 33 years old. I joined the Actors' Gang in 2012 at CRC Prison where I was serving a 10 year sentence. The Actors' Gang has completely changed my life and given me the tools to be successful in life. I work for the Actors' Gang Prison project and now go back to prison where I promised myself I would never return. Actors' Gang also gave me a career.

    Robert Chavez

    Robert Chavez   My name is Robert Chavez, I am a Los Angeles native, and first generation Mexican American.  Both of my parents migrated to the U.S with the hopes of a better quality of life.  At the age of 19 I was sentenced to a Life term within the California Department of Corrections.  This was a journey of violence and self-discovery.  Initially I lived a life that was void of hope, as a lifer I was condemned to spend the rest of my life in prison.

    In 2016 I was introduced to The Actors' Gang, a program that would have a significant impact on my overall outlook on life.  I began to challenge years of ingrained gang cultural beliefs, ultimately gaining insight to a deeper, authentic identity that had always existed within me.  I began to give myself an opportunity to address past and current traumas.  This inner freedom allowed me to regain my physical freedom, and in 2018 I was given an opportunity to address The Board of Parole Hearings.

    I was fortunate that day, and I was granted parole on my initial hearing. Upon my release I joined The Actors' Gang as an alumni, and then soon became a Teaching Artist. In addition, I am a Life Coach for The Anti- Recidivism Coalition, and above all, I am a father of a beautiful two-year-old.  I am proud and humbled to be part of a great movement, no longer a person that contributed to the destruction of my community, but someone that builds and thrives for a brighter society.

    Richard LoyaRichard Loya - My name is Richard Loya. I am a first generation Mexican-American, born in East Los Angeles, California, raised by immigrant parents. I am 50 yrs old, and formerly incarcerated. At 16 yrs old, I committed a crime, and right before my 18th birthday, I was sentenced to 27 years to life. I ended up serving 30 years in the California prison system. It was there that I learned of the Arts. 

    The Actors’ Gang Prison Project came to Avenal State Prison and introduced to us (me), these methods and techniques on how to tap into, channel, even control my emotions through this highly intense style of theater. Four years later, I am now Program Manager of The Prison Project. I’m off parole, and have continued doing the work out here in the community. I go back inside into the thirteen prisons we’re currently working in. We’re in re-entry, and recently have been cleared by Probation to work with the Youth.

    (SCROLL DOWN TO RSVP FOR ZOOM LINK)

    Description: In February 2021, the military in Burma seized control following a general election in which Aung San Suu Kyi's NLD party won by a landslide. Since then there have been mass protests, armed resistance and killings. This forum will serve as an important update on the coup in Myanmar/Burma.

He continues to  provide technical and facilitation support to national dialogues and peace structures and to political reform processes, including those in Lebanon, Myanmar/Burma, Cyprus and  Zimbabwe.

    Earlier in his career, Mr. Siebert served as director in South Africa’s National Peace Secretariat, the multi-party body mandated to implement its 1992 National Peace Accord. Post-1994 he assisted the Special Presidential Task Force in key intractable conflicts, focusing on de-militarization of youth militia.

    Mr. Siebert co-founded the Peace Appeal with James Wine, Colin Jones and five Nobel Peace Laureates in 2000, in support of the “Appeal of the Nobel Peace Laureates for  Peace and Non-Violence for the Children of the World.” In 2001, he was invited to serve  as an associate and fellow at the Center for War, Peace and the News Media at NYU,  where he coordinated the West-Dar al Islam Media Dialogues program, facilitating  dialogue between major media institutions in the U.S. and the Middle East.

    Bob Zellner

    Bob Zellner 
    Civil Rights Activist – Member of SNCC  
    (Student Non-violent Coordinating Committee) 

    Bob Zellner brings to life the victories, struggles and heartbreaks of the Civil Rights era  in a way that empowers and instructs audiences and the modern-day movement. 

    Bob is one of the most influential leaders in the Civil Rights Movement, from the 1960s  to today. The son and grandson of Ku Klux Klan members, he risked his life – and nearly 

    lost it – many times in the fight to achieve The Second Emancipation. As an organizer of  The Freedom Rides of 1961 and the first white southerner to serve as field secretary for  the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee, he worked alongside Martin Luther  King, Jr., John Lewis, Rosa Parks, Julian Bond, Diane Nash and many other civil rights  leaders. Famous for battles with the KKK, lynch mobs, and violent police, he is now the  individual that a new generation turns to with questions on the racial, historical and  cultural assumptions on which they were raised, as they ask themselves, "What is my  place in this struggle?" 

    Bob captivates audiences with the untold stories of the Civil Rights Movement and his dedication to fighting for the rights of others. Drawing on decades of experience guiding the movement and his ongoing active role, he presents a modern-day message for combating deep-seated racism, discrimination and prejudice and sparking widespread social change. The highly anticipated film Son of the South, based on Bob's  autobiography The Wrong Side of Murder Creek, was released February 5, 2021.

    (SCROLL DOWN TO RSVP FOR ZOOM LINK!) Contact [email protected] with any questions - thanks!

    Challenges to Democracy from Right-wing Nationalists, Populist and Strongman Movements

    Description: A PowerPoint presentation will provide an overview of Trump’s six years, including his campaign for president in 2016, his presidency for four years, his loss of the Nov. 2020 election, and the ongoing “Big Lie” that he won. The presentation will also touch on Trump's many Russian ties - including Putin- his love of dictators, and his view of democracy as weak. We will discuss how Trump's increasing appeals to white racism and his efforts to stay in power via several coup attempts which culminated in the Jan. 6 capitol insurrection, two impeachments, and his ongoing hold on the Republican Party (demanding total one-way loyalty). Many investigations have been made into his finances and possibly criminal actions. However, now that Trump has had to leave office his stated desire is to run for president again in 2024. Finally, we will discuss how Putin’s invasion of Ukraine and the resulting targeting of civilians and wholesale carnage to the country may be forcing some Republicans to re-examine their support for right-wing nationalist and populist strongman dictators, like Putin and Trump even as right-wing strongman trends are occurring in many other countries today.

    Reflections from the Migrant Trail: Guatemala City to Tapachula, Mexico

     Reflections from the Migrant Trail: Guatemala City to Tapachula, Mexico

    (SCROLL DOWN AND RSVP FOR ZOOM LINK)

     

    Description: Southern Californian Episcopalians set out on January 16 for a week of pilgrimage, accompaniment, fact-finding, and witness along the “migrant road” — a route commonly taken by people from around the world who have been forcibly displaced by violence, environmental disaster, extreme poverty, and racism. The small group included clergy, laity, and diocesan staff, most of whom were seasoned church immigration activists who had been to the region before.  The purpose of the visit to Guatemala and, later in the week, to Tapachula Mexico, was to strengthen ties with partners in both countries while learning more about personal narratives of those who set out on the migrant road.  Upon returning, the hope was to deepen our fellow Episcopalians’ understanding of the human dimensions of the crisis and become more effective advocates for just U.S. policies in the region. Grace Dyrness was a member of the delegation and she will report on some of what the group discovered along the way.

    Speaker:

    Grace Dyrness

    Grace Dyrness is a private consultant in local, grassroots community development and a part-time associate professor in the Sol Price School of Public Policy at the University of Southern California where she teaches in the areas of public service in an urban setting, social context of planning, and sustainable communities. She has graduate degrees from the Ateneo de Manila University and the University of Southern California. Her doctoral work focused on the growth of the informal sector of the Los Angeles economy, particularly on a project with the city’s street vendors. She serves on a variety of boards including founding Board Member of ICUJP, Housing Works, The Christian-Muslim Consultative Group, the Epiphany Trust, the CommunityAdvisory Council of The Wall Las Memorias Project, the Center for Latino Church Studies at Fuller Theological Seminary.

    Crisis in Yemen: Ending US Involvement in War and Blockade 
    Crisis in Yemen: Ending U.S. Involvement in War and Blockade 

    (Scroll down to register and receive Zoom link)

    Description:

    One year after the Biden administration announced an end to U.S. support for the Saudi-led coalition’s offensive operations in Yemen, critical forms of U.S. military support remain, including ongoing spare parts transfers and maintenance for Saudi warplanes. As the war approaches the seven-year mark the conflict continues to escalate, and Yemeni civilians suffer the consequences. This event will offer reflections on the Biden administration’s Yemen approach over the past year and discuss steps Congress can take to resolve the crisis. 

    Our conversation comes at a desperate moment with roughly 16.2 million Yemenis at risk of famine. The UN warned in March 2021 that 400,000 children under the age of 5 could perish from severe acute malnutrition without urgent action. Despite growing pressure from lawmakers, civil society, and Yemeni-American activists against the Saudi blockade of Yemen the Saudi-led coalition only allowed 5% of Yemen's fuel needs into its Red Sea ports in December and conducted multiple airstrikes on Sana’a Airport, closing the runway to UN-aid flights. The lack of fuel has driven the price of food and water beyond the reach of many Yemenis, increasing the risk of malnutrition and starvation. Over 15,000 Yemeni civilians were displaced by the conflict in December, and over 350 civilians were killed directly by the conflict. 
     
    At this event Hassan El-Tayyab, FCNL's Middle East policy lead, will offer updates on the war and blockade, the ongoing humanitarian crisis, and the US's role; highlight stories from the ground in Yemen; analyze the Biden administration’s policies over the past year; and offer perspectives on what role Congress can play in ending U.S. involvement in the war and blockade.

    Speaker:

    Hassan El-Tayyab

    Hassan El-Tayyab is FCNL’s legislative director for Middle East policy. His passion for foreign affairs is rooted in his desire to make life better for people in the Middle East, including his extended family in Jordan. He is convinced that advancing a more peaceful and diplomacy-based foreign policy in the Middle East is critical, not only for the family he loves, but for peace and stability worldwide.

    Prior to joining FCNL in August 2019, he was co-director of the national advocacy group Just Foreign Policy, where he led their lobbying work to advance a more progressive foreign policy in the Middle East and Latin America. He played a major role in the successful passage of the War Powers Resolution to end U.S. military participation in the Saudi-led coalition’s war and blockade on Yemen.

    His writings and commentaries have been featured in numerous news outlets, including CNN, BBC World News, Politico, The Hill, Al Jazeera, The Huffington Post, The Intercept and more.

    Reparations and the Ally Response Images

    Reparations, Land Back and the Ally Response

    The word reparations raises so many questions. For instance, what are they, how do they relate to settler colonialism and slavery, and how can we, people committed to justice and peace, respond to the call for reparations on stolen land. We hope to provide some answers to these questions, and direction for possible action. We’ll hear from Karen Hilfman about reparations in general plus three amazing panelists active in the reparations and land back movements - traci kato-kiryama, Ian Schiffer, and David Gardinier - about why reparations is important to them and the kinds of work they do.

    Speakers: 

    Karen Hilfman (she/her) is a long-time Los Angeles economic, racial justice and feminist organizer, most recently active with White People 4 Black Lives (the L.A. affiliate of Showing Up for Racial Justice), the Fund For Reparations NOW!, and Jewish Voice for Peace – Los Angeles.  She’s retired from a human resource career at Jewish Family Service, Los Angeles.   Karen’s been learning a lot from the younger generations about how the “abolition” movement is a more nuanced, grounded, and constructive approach to dismantling racialized capitalist and imperialist systems of oppression than was the “revolutionary” movement of the 1970’s. Her top interests are movement organization and relationship building and writing.

     

    traci kato-kiriyama

    traci kato-kiriyama (they+she) --based on unceded Tongva land in the south bay of Los Angeles-- is an award-winning multi-, inter- and transdisciplinary artist, recognized for their work as a writer/performer, theatre deviser, cultural producer, and community organizer. As a storyteller and Artivist, tkk is grounded in collaborative process, collective self-determination, and art+community as intrinsically tied and a critical means toward connection and healing. She is a performer & principal writer for PULLproject Ensemble, two-time NET recipient; NEFA 2021-22 finalist for their show TALES OF CLAMOR.  tkk —presented for over 25 years in hundreds of venues throughout North America as a writer, actor, poet, speaker, guest lecturer, facilitator, Artist-in-Residence, and organizing / arts & culture consultant— has come to appreciate a wildly hybrid career.

     

    Ian SchifferIan Schiffer (he/him) is an organizer, resource mobilizer, and ritual leader born and raised in Tovaangar/LA. Through his role as Community Weaver with Nefesh, an open-hearted spiritual community, he supports bridge-building, and inner-outer multi-faith Tikkun. Ian works with boys and men in building nurturance culture and is honored to be connected to the Tongva Tahrahat Paxaavxa conservancy. He's interested in offering spiritual, radical real estate, and ancestral support to other settlers interested in being good guests/kuuyam through land rematriation/teshuvah. Ian is a life-long Dalai Lama Fellow, loves ritual walks at the beach, and spacious time with kin.

     

     

    David Gardinier David Gardinier (he/she/they) is working to build a healthy anti-racist white identity both within themself and with the white people in their community, and it is this vision that led them to found the Fund for Reparations NOW!. David comes from Spokane, WA, but now lives in Los Angeles, CA, where they are an active member of the Alliance of White Anti Racists Everywhere (AWARE) - LA. Over the years, David has come to see reparations work as their highest calling, and they are eager to see the payment of formal reparations to African Americans within their lifetime.

    The best tribute to Desmond Tutu would be Freedom for All

    The Best Tribute to Desmond Tutu Would Be Freedom for All

    In a series of reflections on his decades of personal and political connections with Archbishop Tutu, inter-faith activist and human rights academic Matt Meyer will tell stories about his times with the Arch, share political campaigns of importance to his legacy, and suggest ways in which his particular praxis - of radical nonviolence based on justice and liberation - is especially relevant for the 21st Century. There will be time for prayers, questions, and dialogue, and as would be a requirement of the Archbishop: there will also be some jokes!

    Speaker: 

    Matt MeyerMatt Meyer is an internationally noted historian, orator, and organizer who serves as Secretary-General of the International Peace Research Association, the world’s leading consortium of university-based professors, scholars, students, and community leaders. Meyer is the Senior Research Scholar of the University of Massachusetts/Amherst’s Resistance Studies Initiative, active also with the International Fellowship of Reconciliation and the War Resisters’ International. The author/editor of over a dozen books, Meyer’s work focuses on African Peace and Nonviolence Studies; 21st Century Decolonization; the Strategies and Tactics of Movement-building; and Political Prisoners of Conscience and the Abolition of White Supremacy. South African Nobel Peace Laureate Archbishop Desmond Tutu, in his Introduction to Meyer’s first book Guns and Gandhi in Africa (co-authored with Pan-African pacifist Bill Sutherland), noted that they “have looked beyond the short-term strategies and tactics which too often divide progressive peoples…and begun to develop a language which looks at the roots of our humanness.” Argentine Nobel Peace Laureate Adolfo Perez Esquivel, in his Introduction to Meyer’s encyclopedic look at issues of US imprisonment Let Freedom Ring, added that his “consistent work as a coalition-builder…provides tools for today’s activists.”

    Eleanor Roosevelt holds up a copy of 'THE UNIVERSAL DECLARATION OF HUMAN RIGHTS'
    Rethinking Human Rights

    RSVP Below for Zoom Link and Password

    We all know there are nations that are terribly cruel violators of sacred human rights. However, on this International Human Rights Day, we will not be delving into those because we already know about them. Instead, on this seventy-third anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR), we will spend time analyzing situations in which some of the rights spelled out in this document are pitted against others, and we’ll be voting on how best to deal with such situations. We will question what governments, organizations, and individuals we should oppose and which ones deserve our solidarity. We may or may not always agree with the organizations we believe in; what’s important is that we deepen our awareness of realities faced when people make life-determining decisions far away from the comforts we have in making ours.

    Speaker:

    Carolfrances Likins is an ICUJP board member and the chair of its outreach and advocacy committee. She is a retired elementary school teacher with three decades experience, mostly in Compton and Watts. She’s also a screenwriter, novelist, children’s book author, and poet. She has traveled nine times to Cuba, six to Nicaragua, twice each to Palestine, Guatemala, and El Salvador, and once each to Venezuela and México – always as an internationalist, not a tourist. For the seventieth anniversary of the UDHR, she developed an interactive cooperative game exploring the document, through which she led the ICUJP and one university class.

    Outside the Law: The Legal War Against Unhoused People

    RSVP Below for Zoom Link and Password

    Event description: Unhoused Californians face discrimination daily. They are cited and jailed for lacking a house. They are forcibly segregated and banished to remote and dangerous areas. Local governments withdraw lifesaving resources from them, harass and try to shut down the places they seek refuge, and disrupt the humanitarian efforts of individuals and groups attempting to meet their survival needs. Much of the state persecution they endure is harmful and even deadly. It is also not recognized as discrimination under the law. Learn about a growing campaign to end discrimination against our unhoused neighbors and what you can do now to fight these forms of state violence against our most economically vulnerable community members.

    Saturday, September 11  •  4:00 - 6:00 pm Pacific time

    Dear friends,

    Twenty years ago, only days after the devastating 9/11 attacks, the late Rev. George F. Regas brought together Christians, Jews, Muslims, Quakers, humanists and people of many other faiths and beliefs to found Interfaith Communities United for Justice and Peace. Acutely aware that this dire moment posed a grave threat to peace and justice, George knew instinctively that peacemakers needed to create a place to gather, organize, pray, and act together united by the fundamental principle that Religious Communities Must Stop Blessing War and Violence.

    You are warmly invited to join us in person or online, 4:00-6:00 pm Pacific time to celebrate ICUJP's 20th Anniversary, honoring Rev. Regas's life and legacy. The celebration will include the 2021 George F. Regas Courageous Peacemaker Awards, recognizing people and organizations whose work exemplifies Rev. Regas's principles of peace and justice. (Please note that at the in-person event, we will strictly adhere to all COVID restrictions required by the Pasadena Public Health Department and the CDC at that time.)

    We're thrilled to honor:

    Rep Judy Chu

    U.S. Representative Judy Chu, D-CA-27
    for her ongoing commitment to justice and peace

    In addition, we will honor the following organizations for their efforts in serving and advocating for people impacted by the Covid pandemic:

    • All Saints Episcopal Church, Pasadena
    • Black-Jewish Justice Alliance
    • Clergy & Laity United for Economic Justice (CLUE)
    • Friends Committee on National Legislation CA Advocacy Team
    • Housing Works

    Sunday, June 27
    2:00 - 4:00 pm

    image.png


    Interfaith Communities United for Justice and Peace (ICUJP) is pleased to once again host Los Angeles District Attorney George Gascón and Black Lives Matter leader Dr. Melina Abdullah. The event will be moderated by Jody D. Armour, law professor, scholar, and author.

    This forum will continue the conversation from our first Backlash to Justice event in March. The conversation will include situation updates and discussion on actions that people seeking racial justice can take. Together, we can push forward needed changes in the criminal justice system and push back efforts to reinforce mass incarceration and other repressive, racist measures in the name of victims' rights.

    Speakers:


    George Gascón

    In November 2020, George Gascón was elected Los Angeles District Attorney after promising to fight the “machine of mass incarceration,” end tough-on-crime prosecutions, free people from overcrowded prisons, and hold police accountable for misconduct. He defeated his predecessor, Jackie Lacey, who was under fire for her ties to police unions, refusal to prosecute police officers accused of abuse, and continued support for the death penalty.

    Since taking office, DA Gascón has announced his department will stop seeking the death penalty, prosecuting children as adults, filing gang enhancements, and filing three-strikes charges (requiring life sentences). These changes provoked an immediate backlash. Law enforcement leaders statewide have launched a campaign to thwart DA Gascón’s reforms, including challenges from DAs and from the union of his own deputy prosecutors. Another campaign, backed by the LA County Sheriff, aims to recall him from office. The outcome of Gascón's reforms could significantly impact similar efforts across the U.S.

    Dr. Melina Abdullah

    In 2020, Dr. Abdullah was a chief spokesperson for "Jackie Lacey Must Go!" - an effort to replace Lacey as Los Angeles DA, led by families of those killed by law enforcement with impunity. A womanist scholar-activist and prolific author, Dr. Abdullah is a recognized expert on race, gender, class, and social movements. One of the original group whose convening led to the creation of Black Lives Matter, she co-founded Black Lives Matter-LA and continues serving as a leader in the local and national movement.

    Dr. Abdullah is Professor and former Chair of Pan-African Studies at California State University, Los Angeles. She is co-host and co-producer of the KPFK radio program Beautiful Struggle and has appeared on MSNBC, CNN, ABC, PBS, Al-Jazeera and other TV news outlets. She serves on the boards of numerous academic and community action organizations and is the recipient of a wide range of awards for her work in racial justice, human rights, and community service.

    Jody D. Armour

    Jody David Armour is the Roy P. Crocker Professor of Law at the University of Southern California, currently teaching Criminal Law, Accident Law (Torts), and a seminar on Stereotypes, Prejudice, and the Rule of Law. A widely published scholar and popular lecturer, he studies the intersection of race, law, morality, psychology, politics, ordinary language philosophy, and the performing arts.

    Armour’s latest book, N*gga Theory: Race, Language, Unequal Justice, and the Law, looks at America’s criminal justice system – among the deadliest and most racist in the world – through deeply interdisciplinary lenses. His award-winning book, Negrophobia and Reasonable Racism: The Hidden Costs of Being Black in America addresses three core concerns of the Black Lives Matter movement: racial profiling, police brutality, and mass incarceration. In addition to authoring numerous articles, Armour appears as a legal analyst on NBC, CBS, ABC, FOX, PBS, MSNBC, NPR, and many other media outlets.

    Interfaith Communities United for Justice and Peace (ICUJP) is grateful to Los Angeles District Attorney George Gascón, Black Lives Matter leader Dr. Melina Abdullah, Kelly Savage-Rodriguez of the California Coalition for Women Prisoners, and everyone who joined us yesterday. The forum included situation updates and discussion on actions that people seeking racial justice can take. Together, we can push forward needed changes in the criminal justice system and push back efforts to reinforce mass incarceration and other repressive, racist measures in the name of victims' rights.

    Speakers:


    George Gascón

He defeated his predecessor, Jackie Lacey, who was under fire for her ties to police unions, refusal to prosecute police officers accused of abuse, and continued support for the death penalty.

    Since taking office, DA Gascón has announced his department will stop seeking the death penalty, prosecuting children as adults, filing gang enhancements (additional punishments added to sentences), and filing three-strikes charges, which require life sentences. He also has promised to stop sending DAs to parole hearings to oppose release and to re-evaluate thousands of cases for resentencing.

    These policy changes have provoked an immediate and growing backlash. Law enforcement leaders statewide have launched an aggressive campaign to thwart DA Gascón’s reforms, including challenges from DAs and from the union of his own deputy prosecutors. Another campaign, backed by the LA County Sheriff, aims to recall him from office. The success or failure of Gascón's criminal justice reforms could significantly impact similar efforts across the U.S.

    Kelly Savage-Rodriguez

    Kelly Savage-Rodriguez is the new coordinator for DROP LWOP (Life Without Parole), a program of CCWP. Recently released from prison at 46 years old, Kelly was incarcerated for 23 years. Governor Jerry Brown commuted her life without parole sentence in December 2017, and she was finally released on parole in November 2018. As a domestic violence survivor, Kelly was forced to experience the similarities between domestic violence and the violence of incarceration. She was an inside member of CCWP for 15 years and helped initiate CCWP’s campaign to end life without parole.

    Join ICUJP and allies online to mark the 19th anniversary of the opening of Guantanamo Bay and the human rights violations and torture it spawned.

    At its peak, the illegal detention center at Guantanamo Bay held some 800 men and boys of Muslim faith - most of whom were never charged with a crime. Today, 40 prisoners still languish there.

    Let's send a message to President Trump and President-elect Biden:

    Close Guantanamo NOW and release all detainees!
    End torture NOW and prosecute the torturers and those who authorized them.

    ICUJP exists because of an extraordinary peace advocate - the Rev. George F. Regas. In the days after 9/11, he called together Buddhist, Christian, Islamic, Jewish, Quaker and other faith leaders and activists to oppose the forces pressing for war and its devastating consequences.

    Nineteen years later, the struggle for justice and peace goes on. So it's a fitting time for ICUJP to recognize those who, in the spirit of Rev. Regas, continue to oppose the tragic folly of endless war and violence at home and worldwide. 

    We're excited to announce the 2020 George F. Regas Courageous Peacemaker Award recipients:

    For Justice:

    • Black Lives Matter - Los Angeles

    For Peace:

    • The Most Rev. Desmond Tutu, Archbishop Emeritus of Cape Town, South Africa
    • Jewish Voice for Peace
    • World BEYOND War

    We're also delighted to use this occasion to celebrate Rev. Regas' upcoming 90th birthday on Oct. 1! 🎂🎉🎈🎁🌟💕

    You are warmly invited to a special online program honoring the award recipients and celebrating Rev. Regas' milestone. The event will include live music, video presentations, and appearances by Rev. Regas and other special guests. To RSVP, please visit the event registration page

    This event is free, but we need your generous donations to continue our work to end war and violence and promote peace and justice. Please visit our donation page, or just text a gift amount to 323.701.1467. Thank you!

    We look forward to your joining us and celebrating the 2020 George F. Regas Courageous Peacemaker Award recipients and Rev. Regas!

    Warmly,

    Stephen Rohde, Chair
    Grace Dyrness, Vice Chair

    One World: Ending Endless War and Creating a Just, Peaceful, Healthy Planet

    One World conference 6.7.20

    A Virtual Conference
    Sunday, June 7, 1:00-4:00 pm PDT
    Free and open to all


    Interfaith Communities United for Justice and Peace began planning a conference, One World: Ending Endless War and Creating a Just, Peaceful, Healthy Planet, several months ago. Little did we know how prophetic that title would become.

    With the entire world now engulfed in a pandemic, we’re seeing as never before how interdependent we all are – and how much we need to stand together to fight militarism, racism, poverty, and injustice. If you're as alarmed as ICUJP about our country’s march toward increased militarism and endless war, we invite you to stand with us in helping to stop this insane cycle and the horrific toll it exacts on people, societies, and our planet.

    Please join us online for One World on Sunday, June 7! This virtual conference is a time for organizations and communities to join forces, confront the serious challenges facing us, and – most importantly - initiate solutions and actions to create a peaceful and prosperous world for all.

    Keynote Speaker

    • Rev. James Lawson, Pastor Emeritus, Holman United Methodist Church

    Breakout Sessions

    Peace with Justice

    Amid the COVID 19 pandemic, the United States continues to suffer from another deadly and chronic disease: addiction to war. For generations, leaders of both political parties have pathologically pursued a failed foreign policy of warmaking and intervention. With 800 military bases around the world, since 9/11 the US has squandered over $6 TRILLION on wars, causing a catastrophic loss of life and destruction of societies. The Pentagon outspends the world’s seven next largest militaries combined. And the US sells more weapons - to 98 countries in the last five years - than any other nation. This session will examine America’s blind commitment to armed supremacy and military dominance. And it will explore how we can strengthen diplomatic and humanitarian alternatives to war and build a world of pluralism and peace.

    Session 1, 1:45 pm:

    • Jodie Evans, Cofounder and Director, CODEPINK
    • Shakeel Syed, Regional Director, American Muslims for Palestine

    Session 2, 2:45 pm:

    • Salam Al-Marayati, President, Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC)
    • Dr. Douglas Becker, Assistant Professor of International Relations, University of Southern California

    Environmental Justice

    Environmentalists have been warning that with a rise in the earth’s temperature, we will see increased climate disasters, devastation, rising seas, higher temperatures that result in more virulent strains of viruses and bacteria, destruction of crops, and resulting hunger, among other things. COVID-19 could well be a result of this climatic change.* ICUJP has long held that in addition to the above, wars continue to play a big role in the destruction of the earth. Yet many are working for change in policy and in personal actions. This session will highlight some of the ways that environmentalists are providing a way forward to restore us to a healthy planet. (*James Kingsland, Medical News Today, 4/3/20)

    Session 1, 1:45 pm:

    • Hop Hopkins, Director of Strategic Partnerships, Sierra Club
    • Dr. John Cobb, Founder, Center for Process Studies; Process and Faith

    Session 2, 2:45 pm:

    • Lisa Smithline, Old Dog Documentaries, discussing the film ROLLBACKS: An Assault Against Life on Earth

    Racial and Religious Justice

    The COVID 19 pandemic has exposed a serious “pre-existing condition” in American society: racism and bigotry. Deep-seated racism - the legacy of slavery, Jim Crow, and segregation - has contributed to severe disparities in health care, housing, food, jobs, incarceration, and other features of American life. Today, black, brown and native Americans are suffering twice the death rate from COVID 19 compared to the white population. Meanwhile, long simmering anti-Semitism, Islamophobia and prejudice toward immigrants and refugees (fostered and condoned at the highest levels of government) are breeding White Nationalism. And, inflamed by President Trump, ugly anti-Asian prejudice has flared. This session will examine racism and religious bigotry in America and will offer an opportunity to discuss how progressives and people of faith can embrace movements of liberation to create a multiracial, diverse democracy.

    Session 1, 1:45 pm:

    • Hyepin Im, Founder and CEO, Faith and Community Empowerment
    • Dr. Zaman Stanizai, Professor of Political Science, Cal State Dominguez Hills

    Session 2, 2:45 pm:

    • Rabbi Mel Gottlieb, PhD, President, Academy for Jewish Religion | CA
    • Tahil Sharma, North American Coordinator, United Religions Initiative

    Economic Justice

    The COVID-19 pandemic has uncovered how the current economic system is not working. Based on a form of capitalism that has become exploitative and oppressive, it has slowly increased inequality and eroded the middle class, where the rich get richer and the poor get poorer. Some people are calling out for a jubilee of economics, based on a system of debt forgiveness across the board.** ICUJP has long held that U.S. prioritization of the military industrial complex has created a budget that is heavily invested in this sector with a disproportionately minuscule amount allotted to our social welfare and thus has produced the stark poverty we have today. This breakout session will look at how this has impacted the lower-income and working class and will offer solutions for a new way forward. (**Washington Post 3/21/20; Marketplace Morning Report 4/2/20)

    Session 1, 1:45 pm:

    • Ashley Gonzales, Faith Rooted Organizer, Clergy and Laity United for Economic Justice (CLUE)
    • Ben Poor, Community Organizer, UniteHere! Local 11

    Session 2, 2:45 pm:

    • Ashley Gonzales, Faith Rooted Organizer, Clergy and Laity United for Economic Justice (CLUE)

    Fidel Sanchez and CISPES colleagues report on the El Salvador elections

    In El Salvador's February 3 presidential election, Nayib Bukele, the former mayor of San Salvador, beat the two ruling party candidates - Carlos Calleja of the conservative Arena Party and Hugo Martínez of the incumbent Farabundo Martí National Liberation Front. The victory sent a decisive message to the two parties, which have held power since El Salvador’s brutal civil war in the 1980s.

    "Voters appeared to be willing to gamble on a relative newcomer to confront the country’s poverty and violence, shutting out the El Salvador election monitoring  team from LAright- and left-wing parties that have dominated Salvadoran politics for three decades" (New York Times).

    ICUJP board member Fidel Sanchez and colleagues from CISPES (Committee in Solidarity with Fidel Sanchezthe People of El Salvador) traveled to the country as monitors to ensure free and fair elections. Join us for a discussion on the election, its results and how it may impact the country going forward.

    Prisoners Are Not Erased: Trauma-Informed Lawyering to Empower Incarcerated People
    Peter Borenstein, Restorative Justice Fund

     
     

    chain link fence

    This forum will be live streamed on the ICUJP Facebook page. Please visit https://facebook.com/ICUJP starting around 7:30 am.

    Many people who are or have been in prison face huge injustices and challenges in navigating life on the outside. Peter Borenstein, a 2014 Loyola Law School graduate, started the Restorative Justice Fund (RJFund) to advocate for, design, and deploy innovative interventions on behalf of incarcerated and formerly incarcerated people at every level of the criminal justice system. He will discuss the many and complex issues they face, and RJFund's work to support them.


    Peter BorensteinFollowing graduation, Peter consulted with the Los Angeles City Attorney to develop the Neighborhood Justice Program, a pre-charge diversion program for first-time, low-level, adult offenders, This work led to his founding of RJFund in 2015. 
    After passing the bar, Peter began hosting a free legal clinic for newly released lifers at a transitional housing facility. The first three men he met reported a strikingly similar issue: During their incarceration, they had all been stolen from by people on the outside, mostly siblings, spouses, and former business partners. This fateful meeting led to RJFund's flagship program: The Lifer Legal Clinic provides legal representation to recover property (houses and cash) stolen from clients while they were in prison. To date, the clinic has recovered more than a million dollars worth of real property and liquid assets on behalf of clients.

    RJFund's newest initiative supports clients who, while incarcerated, have learned to successfully litigate cases through decades of study in prison law libraries. Nevertheless, they're unable to leverage this expertise into good jobs due to bias and lack of finances. RJFund is partnering with Goodwill Industries to subsidize paralegal certification for these skilled jailhouse lawyers and help them gain work that utilizes their unique skills.

    The End of the Death Penalty with Stephen Rohde

    CA gas chamber closed


    On March 13, Governor Gavin Newsom granted reprieves to all 737 inmates on California’s death row—the largest in America. This action blocks executions while he is in office. But the death penalty is still on the books and the battle for abolition goes on.

    In announcing the moratorium, Newsom called the death penalty a failure. “It has provided no public safety benefit or value as a deterrent. It has wasted billions of taxpayer dollars. But most of all, the death penalty is absolute, irreversible and irreparable in the event of a human error.” Sen Kamala Harris praised Newsom’s decision, calling the death penalty “immortal, discriminatory, ineffective, and a gross misuse of taxpayer dollars.”

    Growing numbers in the U.S. agree. Twenty states and the District of Columbia have now banned the death penalty, recognizing what every other civilized nation in the world has realized. 

    Steve RohdeJoin ICUJP Chair Stephen Rohde, an outspoken death penalty opponent, for a comprehensive look at the fatal flaws in the capital punishment system and the growing abolition movement in California and across the country. Learn what you can do to end state killing.

    Stephen Rohde is a constitutional scholar, lecturer, writer and political activist. He represented a death row inmate and was part of the clemency team for Stanley Tookie Williams. A founder and current Chair of Interfaith Communities United for Justice and Peace, Stephen has served on the Board of Directors of Death Penalty Focus for 20 years. He is the author of two books, American Words of Freedom: The Words That Define Our Nation and Freedom of Assembly, and coauthor of Foundations of Freedom: A Living History of Our Bill of Rights.

    Friday Forum 2.22.19: Continuing the #MeToo Conversation

    In our third forum focusing on the #MeToo and women's movements, ICUJP members Susan Stouffer and Marium Mohiuddin will facilitate a discussion on sexual harassment and sexual assault, where things stand with the movements, and how far we still need to go to create a world in which all people are treated with respect.

    in October 2017, soon after widespread sexual misconduct allegations against film mogul Harvey Weinstein, the #MeToo hashtag went viral as countless women and men shared about their own experiences on social media. It was a disturbing wakeup call that demonstrated - almost two decades into the new millennium - the continuing prevalence of sexual assault and harassment, especially in the workplace.

    Join us for a compelling conversation on how we can help move this forward.

    -----

    Please note: Our Friday Forums and other events are open to the public. By attending, you consent to having your voice and likeness recorded, photographed, posted on ICUJP's website and social media, and included in ICUJP materials and publications for noncommercial purposes. If you do not want to be photographed or recorded, please let the facilitator know so you can be seated accordingly.

    Film Screening: Jihadists

    Friday, Feb. 1 and Saturday, Feb. 2

    7:20 pm

    Special screening of Jihadists, followed by an interfaith discussion with director François Margolin

    Sponsored by ICUJP

    Feb 1 panelists:
    • Salam Al-Marayati, Muslim Public Affairs Council
    • Michal Meulenberg, Fuller Seminary
    • Ani Zonneveld, Muslims for Progressive Values
    -----------
    Feb 2 panelists:
    • Salam Al-Marayati, Muslim Public Affairs Council
    • Michal Meulenberg, Fuller Seminary
    • Estee Chandler, Jewish Voice for Peace and host/producer, Middle East in Focus, KPFK

    ICUJP is sponsoring the screening of the new documentary Jihadists. According to the French producers, the film “goes deep into the heart of the Salafi movement, to reveal the inner workings of extremist Islam." A pair of Western filmmakers were granted unparalleled access to fundamentalist movements in Mali, Tunisia, Iraq and Afghanistan. The film exposes the exploitation of sharia law that became a propaganda tool for recruiting suicide bombers and soldiers for ISIS. Without experts contextualizing these events, the film, which inspired the Oscar-nominated feature Timbuktu, paints a stark portrait of everyday life under religious authoritarianism.

    ICUJP, which was founded on the principle that “Religious Communities Must Stop Blessing War and Violence,” believes this film is important in helping to understand the roots of religious violence and the role the U.S. and other countries play in contributing to this dangerous phenomenon.  The misuse of religion is not unique to Islam; it cuts across all religious beliefs. This film is about those who have hijacked a faith and are acting out in ways contrary to the fundamental teachings of that faith, but are driven by the delusion they are the true believers. The documentary cautions us all to understand the roots of extreme religious fundamentalism and how easy it is for people to be misled and coerced into violence, thereby betraying their genuine beliefs.

    In Los Angeles, the film will premiere Thursday, Jan. 31, 7:30 pm at the Laemmle Royal and then will show Feb. 1-7 at the Laemmle Music Hall, Beverly Hills. Please join us at the Music Hall Friday, Feb. 1 and Saturday, Feb. 2 for the 7:20 pm screening, which will include a discussion with director François Margolin and interfaith experts. Tickets now available on the Laemmle Theaters website.

    Vigil: Protest US Backed Attack on Yemeni Children

    Members of ICUJP and CodePink will protest US support for and cooperation with the brutal Saudi-led attack on Yemen by holding a vigil in front of the Downtown Los Angeles Federal Building.

    A bomb made by Lockheed Martin was used by the Saudi Air Force in an August 9 attack on a school bus that killed dozens of Yemeni children. According to CNN, the bomb was sold to the Saudis as part of a US State Department-sanctioned arms deal with Saudi Arabia. U.S.-made bombs have also been used by the Saudis in other aerial mass slaughters of Yemenis, such as the October 2016 attack on a funeral hall that killed 155 and left hundreds more wounded.

    In addition, the U.S. helps to refuel Saudi combat aircraft and assists them with targeting decisions.

    "I will tell you that we do help them plan what we call, kind of targeting," US Secretary of Defense James Mattis told CNN, proceeding to make a distinction that eludes most non-specialists in aerial combat. "We do not do dynamic targeting for them."

    Friday Forum: Liza Diniakos of Freedom for Immigrants

    On any given day, over 40,000 children and adults are languishing in immigrant jails and prisons. They don't have access to a court-appointed attorney, a free phone call, or a speedy trial. Many of them are subjected to medical neglect, sexual and physical assault, and other forms of human rights abuses. Two-thirds of people in U.S. immigration detention are in private prisons and the rest are locked up in county and city jails, all of which profit off their misery. The U.S. government and the private prison industry have been exporting immigration detention to governments across the globe. This is unacceptable.

    This Friday, we are excited to welcome Liza Diniakis of Freedom for Immigrants. Freedom for Immigrants is dedicated to creating new models that treat people with dignity and keep them within their communities.

    Friday Forum: Parliament of World's Religions

    Our world is at a strange crossroads. On one hand, we long for peace and harmony in our lives and in the world, but on the other hand the sad reality is one of division and strife. WHAT CAN WE DO?

    Each one of us can do something, but our efforts are magnified and made more effective when we come together as a community and act with a common purpose.

    This Friday, members of the Southern California Committee for a Parliament of the World's Religions will be speaking at our Friday Forum about the purpose of their upcoming interfaith, inter-generational event, "Sharing Our Stories: Celebrating Harmony in Our Broken World." The program will strive to provide a balm of compassion that can heal a broken world by sharing stories that speak truth to power and rebuild the moral foundation of beloved community.

    Friday Forum: Dr. Arik Greenburg of Institute of Religious Tolerance

    Dr. Arik Greenburg (PhD, President) is the founder of the Institute for Religious Tolerance, Peace & Justice and will speak on the topics of his personal religious journey, and how this led to his founding of the Institute — the crystallization of his life’s work—and will highlight several of their programs, including the Interfaith Solidarity Marches, the Interfaith Ambassador Program, and the newly launched "Our Muslim Neighbors" forum. He will also touch on the possible roles of religion in the 21st century and beyond, in an age of simultaneously increasing secularization and fundamentalism, as well as the need to reach out to our more conservative colleagues in what is the next frontier in interfaith work.  

    Dr. Greenberg is an ardent advocate for interfaith dialogue and collaboration as pathways to world peace. Having studied numerous world religions, he received his Ph.D. in Religious Studies from Claremont Graduate University, specializing in New Testament and Christian Origins, with emphasis on the diversity of belief within early Christianity. He currently serves on the Theology faculty of both Loyola Marymount University and Ezra University.

    God Behind Bars: An Interfaith Pilgrimage to Visit People in Immigration Detention

    JL4_Facebook_Cover_(1).jpg

    June 20 is World Refugee Day.

    Globally we remember the strength, courage, and resilience of millions of refugees.  Sadly, here in the United States, we are detaining thousands of people who should be protected and supported from the violence and trauma they have fled. They are refugees but we treat them as criminals, imprisoning them in deplorable conditions, separating parents from their children, and denying them the basic rights to which they are entitled. 

    ICUJP's third "Speak Truth to Power" Justice Luncheon continues with an important conversation on Tuesday, June 20, about how we as people of faith and of conscience need to stand in solidarity with these immigrants. Let's travel together to pray and to make a visible statement at the Adelanto Immigrant Detention Center, thus creating awareness about what is happening there and about our moral responsibility to speak truth to power, welcome the stranger, pursue release for the prisoner, and care for the widow and the orphan.

    Trauma at Our Borders

    ICUJP's second "Speak Truth to Power" Justice Luncheon continues with an important conversation on Tuesday, May 16, about our current immigration system and treatment of refugees. We are honored to have the following panelists join us for this urgent and pressing topic: 

    lissethflores_web.jpgDr. Lisseth Rojas-Flores of the School of Psychology at Fuller Theological Seminary will present on the effects of immigration enforcement on children. Little research has been done to systematically document the psychological distress and academic challenges that children experience when their parents are detained or deported. The Latino Families Project, which Dr. Rojas directs, seeks to examine how immigration enforcement activities affect the well-being of immigrant families and citizen children. The goals of the study are to identify practical responses for immigration policymakers and to inform the development and practice of effective family and child mental health interventions for young Americans. She will describe the experiences of children and families affected by parental detention and deportation, and the consequences that pose unique mental health challenges for children.

    maxresdefault_web.jpgJose Luis Hernandez, a young migrant from Honduras, will share his story of falling from the train (La Bestia) and losing his leg, arm and part of the other hand.

This seems like a great set of features, especially the part about not costing anything. However, keep reading to find out how many of these things are actually true.

    How Does Profits Infinity 2.0 Work?

    The Profits Infinity 2.0 Software must be accessed before you can start to use the system. This can occur once you have completed the free registration. We were able to complete this with ease, and it did not cost any money. So far, so good! Next, the system allowed us to invest some real money, by transferring it into our own private trading account. This money was not used to pay for anything in the Profits Infinity 2.0 program, and it was our money entirely.

    The system uses special “signals”, which are basically pieces of information about what trades should be made. Using these signals, the software began to do all of the hard work for us. In fact, there was practically nothing else to do after this point, apart from sit back and watch. Of course, you do not have to actively watch, and you can just leave the software to trade your money for you.

    In a small amount of time, it is possible to start seeing real profits from the small amount of money that you decide to invest in the beginning. It is actually amazing to think that the software was able to do everything by itself. Even though an Profits Infinity 2.0 download is not necessary, and there is no installation, the web-based software is extremely powerful, and there were no problems at all.

    Is Profits Infinity 2.0 Scam?

    One of the main reasons that many people miss out on good opportunities, is that they are worried about being scammed. There are other companies around who are pretending to be involved with this trustworthy binary trading software system, and they are giving Profits Infinity 2.0 a bad name. You have probably seen a lot of different “money making schemes” on the Internet, but this is not one of them.

    Cons of Profits Infinity 2.0:

    • Must have PC, smartphone or tablet with internet connection.
    • Must have about an hour a day to use it.
    • While you can trade a lot in a day with 60 second binary options and potentially make a lot of money, you could also lose a lot. “Over-trading” is common among new traders who want to try to catch every market move, but these aren’t likely high probability trades to win. Good set-ups often take time to develop, and therefore by using 60 second binary options you may be distracted by mediocre or poor trade set-ups, missing the good ones.

    Having used the Profits Infinity software for a few days, I’m really excited with the results. Sitting at your laptop and waiting for Profits Infinity to make trades is incredibly boring (it will only make a trade when the conditions are right, so most of the time it does nothing, but you have to leave your laptop running so that it can make a trade whenever it needs to, so I just leave Profits Infinity Software alone and see what it’s done at the end of the trading day.

    After a couple more days of building up my Profits Infinity account I will change the settings in the software to make slightly larger binary trades. This means my risk will basically be the same, but my daily binary options profit will be more. All I know about binary options trading is that it involves selecting 1 of 2 options Put Or Call, and that a trade is obviously profitable when the outcome selected proves to be true. I don’t know anything about the factors the Profits Infinity software has to consider to make trades because no information is provided about this inside Profits Infinity System. I would have liked to have known about that kind of binary options strategies before investing my $250 to get the Profits Infinity software started, but since they weren’t willing to divulge that info I figured $200 was a small enough amount to risk to find out if Profits Infinity really works, which is why I went ahead.

    So, What does the Profits Infinity Software do?

    Basically, the Profits Infinity software will notify you when to trade and what to trade. These binary options signals come from the same source the big folks at Wall Street Market use, so they are extremely very profitable. Now, I m not gonna lie, at first I was really skeptical about the whole Profits Infinity signal software, so I put it to the live action. I’m a father first, over marketing so I only had around 1 hour and 20 minutes to activate before I had to commit to my kids, but in that short space of an hour, I received 33 binary signals to trade.

    From my 33 binary trade, I had a 95% success rate, which is Awesome! Admittedly I was only using small day trades to get started but later on I once I’ve gotten more confident I will increase my binary options investment portfolio per trade so my return ROI is higher.

    What I didn’t like in Profits Infinity Software?

    As I stated above, I had a 95% success rate over 33 trades whilst this is good, the sales page states that the Profits Infinity is 95% accurate. Regardless, I’m extremely happy with the results even though I only did a few short binary trades.

    The system uses special “signals”, which are basically pieces of information about what trades should be made. Using these signals, the software began to do all of the hard work for us. In fact, there was practically nothing else to do after this point, apart from sit back and watch. Of course, you do not have to actively watch, and you can just leave the software to trade your money for you.

    In a small amount of time, it is possible to start seeing real profits from the small amount of money that you decide to invest in the beginning. It is actually amazing to think that the software was able to do everything by itself. Even though an Profits Infinity 2.0 download is not necessary, and there is no installation, the web-based software is extremely powerful, and there were no problems at all.

    Is Profits Infinity 2.0 Scam?

    One of the main reasons that many people miss out on good opportunities, is that they are worried about being scammed. There are other companies around who are pretending to be involved with this trustworthy binary trading software system, and they are giving Profits Infinity 2.0 a bad name. You have probably seen a lot of different “money making schemes” on the Internet, but this is not one of them. We had no trouble accessing our profits, so it is disturbing to learn that people are falling victim to scams from other groups.

    Pros of Profits Infinity 2.0:

    • Profits Infinity 2.0 Software is completely free of charge;
    • Profits Infinity 2.0 Software is fully automated;
    • The system is available as a desktop and browser-based software;

    Cons of Profits Infinity 2.0:

    • Must have PC, smartphone or tablet with internet connection.
    • Must have about an hour a day to use it.
    • While you can trade a lot in a day with 60 second binary options and potentially make a lot of money, you could also lose a lot. “Over-trading” is common among new traders who want to try to catch every market move, but these aren’t likely high probability trades to win. Good set-ups often take time to develop, and therefore by using 60 second binary options you may be distracted by mediocre or poor trade set-ups, missing the good ones.

    Is Profits Infinity 2.0 Worth It?

    If you have a little bit of time to spare, and you are willing to take a look at a new piece of software, which is quite easy to use – you might want to join up. This Profits Infinity 2.0 review was written by people who are interested in sharing the best money-making methods that are available online.

    Profits Infinity 2.0 delivers, there is no question about it. Trades based from the software are scoring over 88% in accuracy. The key to making money with Profits Infinity 2.0 is to get started. The longer you debate about whether or not to pursue this path, the less money you can make as opportunities fade into the past. Don’t delay, get started today and see what the future can bring you. Profits Infinity 2.0 makes it easy to get in on the binary options markets no matter what your experience level or the amount of funds that you have to invest.

    Close Guantanamo

    ICUJP will stage a protest on Wednesday, January 11, the 15th anniversary of the Kafka-esque nightmare that is Guantanamo Bay detention camp. We're hoping to enlist your participation.
     
    We will return to the downtown Federal Building at 300 North Los Angeles Street (90012), where, between noon and 2 p.m., we will have a tableau of hooded, jump-suited prisoners, speakers from progressive organizations and local attorneys who represent prisoners in Guantanamo, and possibly other features as well.
     
    Would you like to be a part of this important protest? Please fill out this form and return it at your earliest convenience to the ICUJP office (817 W. 34th Street, Los Angeles, CA 90089) or at [email protected].

    Hoping to see you on January 11.

    'Costs of War: Refugees and (Im)Migrants' Justice Luncheon

     

    CostsorWarwebsite_small.jpg

     

    Wars, conflict and persecution have forced more people than at any other time to flee their homes and seek refuge and safety elsewhere. Globally, one in every 122 humans is now either a refugee, internally displaced or seeking asylum.

    What impact does this have on the people and what responsibility do we have as U.S. citizens in communities of faith to stop our government from exacerbating the problem with more wars and violence, and welcome the strangers who seek refuge at our doors?

    Come educate yourself:

    • Angela Sanbrano, Chair of Central American Resource Center and President of the National Alliance of Latin American and Caribbean Communities, will speak on the situation of immigrants fleeing the violence in Central America.
    • Kris Coombs, President of the International Refugee Assistance Project, part of the Immigration Clinic at USC’s Gould School of Law, will speak on the situation of refugees from Syria and Iraq.
    • Sabine Freij, PhD candidate in World Politics and Methods at Claremont Graduate University, will share the challenges and joys that a local congregation, All Saints Church Pasadena, has experienced in opening its doors to a Syrian refugee family.

    Close Guantanamo

    ICUJP will stage a protest on Monday, January 11, the 14th anniversary of the Kafka-esque nightmare that is Guantanamo Bay detention camp. We're hoping to enlist your participation.
     
    We will return to the downtown Federal Building at 300 North Los Angeles Street (90012), where, between noon and 2 p.m., we will have a tableau of hooded, jump-suited prisoners, speakers from progressive organizations and local attorneys who represent prisoners in Guantanamo, and possibly other features as well.
     
    Would you like to be a part of this important protest? Please fill out this form and return it at your earliest convenience to the ICUJP office (817 W. 34th Street, Los Angeles, CA 90089) or at [email protected].

    Hoping to see you on January 11.

    (Live...TV) Lazio vs Sampdoria Live Stream Online

    Lazio vs Sampdoria Live Streaming Info: Serie A Live Score; Match Preview – 15th December 2015 Europa League: It is Lazio playing Sampdoria in the Serie A in the 16th match day at the Olimpico. The table is very interesting this season as Inter Milan are the table toppers with 36 points in the 16 matches played, followed by Fiorentina with 32 points, then third is Napoli with again 32 points but less goal difference than Fiorentina and then on the fourth position we have the defending Champions Juventus with 30 points. (see: Leicester City vs Chelsea.)

    Lazio are currently 12th on the table with 19 points in the 15 games played, below Chievo by three points and above Bologna by goal difference whereas Sampdoria are currently 16th on the table with 16 points in the 15 matches played, below Udinese by two points and above Genoa on goal difference. Both these teams are fighting for a place in the top 10 and will have to keep going for it until they get it.
    Lazio vs Sampdoria Live Streaming

    Lazio was in Group G of the Europa League group stages with St-Etienne, Dnipro and Rosenborg and finished first in the group with 14 points in the 6 games played as they won four and drew twice. They have been in a dreadful form in the league and have lost four, drew once in their last five games in the league.

    They need to step up if they want to improve from their current position and break into the top 10. They played the defending champions Juventus last time in the league and lost by 0-2 at home. Lazio had the worst start to the game as they conceded an own goal in the 7th minute as Gentiletti scored the own goal.

    Lazio’s confidence went down from the starting and they were not able to play their best game. Things got worse for Lazio as Dybala scored in the 32nd minute to give Juventus the 0-2 lead and after that Lazio tried hard but was not able to score and lost the game.

    Sampdoria’s season has also been disappointing till now as they crashed out of the Europa league qualifying stages as they lost to FK Vojvodina by 4-2 on aggregate. They have been poor in the league as well with four loses and a draw in the last five games with no signs of improvement.

    While everyone looks forward to the trip to Virginia next weekend, Villanova has some business to take care of at home on Sunday evening. La Salle is coming across town and they would like nothing more than to avenge last season's 14-point loss and knock the Wildcats off their Big 5 throne.

    In the midst of finals, Villanova will be looking to quickly recover from Monday's embarrassment at the hands of Oklahoma in Hawaii before next weekend's chance for national redemption. A convincing win over La Salle, and more importantly so improved offensive play, would be just the kickstart the team needs.

    Game Time, TV Schedule: 5:00pm ET. The game will be aired on Fox Sports 1.

    Odds: OddsShark reports the game opened at Villanova -25.5 with the line being bought down to -23.5 at some books as of Saturday night.

    Radio: All Villanova Men's Basketball games air live on radio in the Philadelphia market on 610 WIP. Westwood One will also air coverage of the game - check your local listings, or you can use a radio app such as Tune.in.

    Live Video Stream: FoxSportsGO will have the game available online.

    Mobile App: FoxSportsGO is your go-to app tonight.

    (Watch*fox) Cowboys vs Packers Live Stream NFL

    Both the Green Bay Packers and Dallas Cowboys escaped Week 13 with victories courtesy of miraculous fourth-quarter comebacks. At least one of these teams will see a downturn in their fortunes this Sunday when the two face off at Lambeau Field.

     

    Live NFL : http://usstreams.com/nfl/

     

    Live NFL : http://usstreams.com/nfl/



    Last week, the Packers never held a lead over the Detroit Lions during the 60 minutes of regulation. At one point in the second half, the Lions led 20-0 and appeared to have the game very much put away. However, Green Bay came roaring back late. Wide receiver Randall Cobb recovered a James Starks fumble in the end zone for the team's first points of the evening, followed by an impressive quarter and change by quarterback Aaron Rodgers. Late in the third, Rodgers threw a dart into a tight window to find Davante Adams in the back of the end zone, and near the end of the fourth he ran in his first rushing touchdown of the season from 17 yards out.

    Yet, the final drive by Green Bay is what most people will remember. On what appeared to be the final play of the game, Rodgers threw to James Jones, who lateralled the ball to tight end Richard Rodgers. Rodgers then tossed it back to the quarterback, who Lions defender Devin Taylor tackled, seemingly ending the game. However, Taylor drew a flag for a facemask penalty, giving the Packers one last untimed down to get into the end zone. That's all they needed, with Rodgers and Rodgers hooking up for one of the most spectacular Hail Mary finishes in NFL history.

    Several days later in the nation's capital, the Cowboys found themselves in a difficult matchup with NFC East-leading Washington. Most pundits had written off Dallas after Tony Romo's second collarbone injury of the season. The team failed to win any of its games without Romo in the lineup, with the rotation of Brandon Weeden and Matt Cassel struggling to impress in their limited action.

    After a slow back-and-forth battle through the first three quarters, Dallas and Washington were locked in a tie game with under a minute left on the clock following a DeSean Jackson touchdown reception. A 46-yard kickoff return from Lucky Whitehead set up Dallas near midfield, giving the embattled Cassel the opportunity to lead a game-winning drive. Cassel targeted Dez Bryant heavily on the drive, completing passes of 12 and 8 yards to him to push the Cowboys into field goal range. That set up Dan Bailey for a 54-yard attempt, which he nailed.

    With the win, the Cowboys kept their aspirations of a division crown alive. They trail Washington and the New York Giants by only a game, and have already defeated both in head-to-head completion. The team has even refrained from placing Romo on injured reserve in the hopes that he can return a second time before the end of the season. If the Cowboys end up with an unlikely playoff berth and Romo returns healthy, they have a prime opportunity to make some noise in a watered-down NFC playoff field.

    CBS]]TV>Seahawks vs Ravens Live Stream NFL

    The Seahawks come into today's game on 7-5, which is a much better position than they looked like they'd get to at one point in the season. However, that is only good enough for second place in the NFC West and they are lagging well behind the 11-2 Arizona Cardinals.

     

    Live NFL : http://usstreams.com/nfl/

     

    Live NFL : http://usstreams.com/nfl/



    Meanwhile, the Ravens are third in the AFC North and have a poor record of just 4-8. They have little to no chance of making the postseason from here but their team will know that with an early offseason looming many of them will be fighting for their places for next year over the coming month of the season.

    Earlier in Week 14 in the NFL regular season, the Minnesota Vikings and Arizona Cardinals faced off on Thursday Night Football in a game full of drama and late twists.

    The Cardinals came into the game as favorites, but the Vikings refused to give in and wouldn't fall away despite Arizona's best efforts.

    A late rally in the final quarter saw Minnesota almost come back to take the game into overtime, and with just seconds to go they had moved into a perfect field goal position, which would have leveled the scores.

    However, Dwight Freeney stripped the ball from Teddy Bridgewater with five seconds to play in a hugely disappointing ending for the Vikings. The turnover deprived Minnesota the opportunity to take the game to overtime and allowed the Cardinals to clinch a Playoff berth that night.

    NFL fans across the country were held on the edge of their seats as the Vikings pulled back from 10 points down in the final quarter and when Bridgewater moved the Vikings to the 31 yard line with what should have been the final drive in the fourth it looked like the game would be heading to a mouthwatering overtime showdown.

    But as Bridgewater went to throw the ball, Freeney managed to get a hand onto the quarterback's arm mid-throw to knock the ball loose. Calls Campbell punched on the loose ball and the game was dramatically and suddenly over.

    It would be harsh to blame Bridgewater for the ending, seeing as the Vikings' comeback was very much based on his good work. The quarterback ended the game passing for 335 yards and a touchdown. Carson Palmer threw for 310 yards and two touchdowns for the Cardinals.

    CBS]]TV>Steelers vs Bengals Live Stream NFL

    This all AFC North division match up sees first vs second and has big Playoff implications. If the Steelers have any thoughts remaining about catching the Bengals they will need to win this one today, and even that may not be enough.

     

    Live NFL : http://usstreams.com/nfl/

     

    Live NFL : http://usstreams.com/nfl/



    The Bengals come into today's game on 10-2 and the Steelers are back on 7-5, so even a win today for the Steelers will leave them with a lot to do and would require other results to go their way through the final month of the regular season.

    Oppositely if the Bengals can win today, then it would put to bed any lingering hopes the Steelers have of catching them, and would confirm Cincinnati as division title winners.

    There is a lot of bad blood built up between these two rivals, and that will add to the passion and tension in today's game. Both teams have on fire offensive units right now, and that should mean we are in for an exciting game of football today.

    Cincinnati coach Marvin Lewis has said, "If you're going to be AFC North champs, it's probably fitting that you have to beat them to do that."

    Earlier in Week 14 in the NFL regular season, the Minnesota Vikings and Arizona Cardinals faced off on Thursday Night Football in a game full of drama and late twists.

    Coming into the game the Buccaneers are on 6-6, tied with the Atlanta Falcons in the NFC South. The Saints are in the basement of the division with a record of just 4-8, and New Orleans chances of making the postseason are now very slim to none.

    For Tampa Bay meanwhile, if they can just put a string of victories together to end the season there is a real chance that they could nab one of the Wild Card spots, however, games like today's against the lowly Saints are definitely the kind of games they simply must win if they are to keep those postseason hopes alive.

    The Saints though would like nothing more than to claim a victory today to drag their division rivals down with them, so expect New Orleans to come out and give their all to stop the Buccaneers moving into winning record territory at their expense.

    However, that winning run came to an abrupt end when Aaron Rodgers threw a 61 yard Hail Mary pass to the end zone with seconds to go to hand the Green Bay Packers a 27-23 win. The Lions had been 20-0 up at one point in the second half, making the defeat that much more painful.

    dominating the St. Louis Rams and Cleveland Browns by a combined score of 68-10. Andy Dalton's career year continued, throwing for five touchdowns and just one interception during that stretch. He's now up to 3,191 yards, 25 touchdowns and just six picks on the season. If Cam Newton, Tom Brady and Carson Palmer are considered the MVP front-runners, then Dalton could well be right behind those three.

    Another red-hot Bengals player is A.J. Green, who shook off a midseason lull to catch three touchdown passes in the past two games. Cincinnati's offense will get another boost this week with Tyler Eifert (the league leader in touchdowns) set to return after sitting out Week 13 with a stinger. With a bevy of weapons on offense and a defense that's allowing the fewest points in the league, the Bengals look well-equipped to get their first playoff win in the Marvin Lewis era.

    When these teams last met in Week 8, Ben Roethlisberger was making his first start after missing four games with a knee injury. He was clearly less than 100 percent, throwing three interceptions in a 16-10 loss. Roethlisberger has been banged up for most of the year, but has yet to miss a game since the early-season injury.

    Pittsburgh is 7-5 and the offense is firing on all cylinders, coming off a 45-10 dismantling of the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday Night Football. They'll be one of those teams that nobody wants to play in January, but getting to the playoffs could be easier said than done.

    The Steelers are currently on the outside of the playoff picture and facing their toughest stretch of the season. After a road loss to the Seattle Seahawks in Week 12, followed by last week's beatdown of the Colts, the Steelers travel to Cincinnati this week and have a home game with the Denver Broncos in Week 15. They need to at least split the next two games to stay in the wild card hunt, or else hope for letdowns from the teams in front of them (Kansas City Chiefs, New York Jets).

    It's an uphill climb, but one that the Steelers should make as long as Roethlisberger, Antonio Brown, Martavis Bryant and DeAngelo Williams continue playing at a high level. The offense is plenty explosive enough to make up for a defense that's 29th in passing yards allowed per game.

    This game has shootout potential, and with so much at stake -- including rivalry bragging rights -- it has the potential to be one of the best NFL games of the entire season.

    Watch# Pittsburgh Steelers vs Cincinnati Bengals Live NFL

    The Bengals are back in form after a two-game losing streak, dominating the St. Louis Rams and Cleveland Browns by a combined score of 68-10. Andy Dalton's career year continued, throwing for five touchdowns and just one interception during that stretch. He's now up to 3,191 yards, 25 touchdowns and just six picks on the season. If Cam Newton, Tom Brady and Carson Palmer are considered the MVP front-runners, then Dalton could well be right behind those three.

    Another red-hot Bengals player is A.J. Green, who shook off a midseason lull to catch three touchdown passes in the past two games. Cincinnati's offense will get another boost this week with Tyler Eifert (the league leader in touchdowns) set to return after sitting out Week 13 with a stinger. With a bevy of weapons on offense and a defense that's allowing the fewest points in the league, the Bengals look well-equipped to get their first playoff win in the Marvin Lewis era.

    When these teams last met in Week 8, Ben Roethlisberger was making his first start after missing four games with a knee injury. He was clearly less than 100 percent, throwing three interceptions in a 16-10 loss. Roethlisberger has been banged up for most of the year, but has yet to miss a game since the early-season injury.

    Watch# Philadelphia Eagles vs Buffalo Bills Live NFL

    After spending the first six season of his career with the Eagles, LeSean McCoy makes his return to Philadelphia Sunday, only this time he will be coming out of the visitor's locker room as a member of the Buffalo Bills.

    Live NFL : http://usstreams.com/nfl/



    The lead-up to the game certainly hasn't been boring, with McCoy refusing to back off of his comments where he insinuated his former head coach Chip Kelly was racist and said he wouldn't even shake Kelly's hand before the game.

    Besides the off-the-field intrigue, the game itself carries plenty of importance for both teams, as the Eagles look to keep pace with the Washington Redskins and New York Giants for the lead in the NFC East, and the Bills look to keep pace for a playoff spot in the AFC.

    Former Oregon Ducks head coach Chip Kelly and the Philadelphia Eagles kick off in Week 14 of the 2015 NFL season with a return home to the Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia to face the Buffalo Bills on Sunday afternoon.

    Never Again Hiroshima

    Remembering the Atomic Bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki
    and Renewing Our Commitment to a Nuclear Weapons Free Future

    Never_Again_flyer-page-002.jpg

     On Aug. 6, 1945 (Aug. 5 in North America), the United States dropped the first atomic bomb over Hiroshima, Japan, killing 130,000 people. Three days later, a second bomb exploded over Nagasaki, killing 70,000. Other countries developed their own nuclear weapons, and humanity became hostage to the ever-present threat of nuclear annihilation. Whether by accident of intent, we remain at risk -- and all that we hold dear hangs in the balance. 

    Please join with us on Aug. 5 to remember Hiroshima and Nagasaki and grow the movement for a nuclear weapons free world. For more information visit www.psr-la.org.

    If the SHU Fits

    A Torture Awareness Month Event:

    May23_flyv5.jpgIn juvenile facilities across California, children are held in solitary confinement for days, weeks, and months at a time. This unnecessarily harsh disciplinary practice harms young people and exposes them to a lifetime of psychological and developmental trauma.

    Endorsed by ICUJP, "If the SHU Fits-Voices from Solitary Confinement," is a production that shares voices of survivors of solitary confinement and their loved ones. This resource powerfully weaves together excerpts of letters, blog entries, government reports and speeches of family members and survivors, all organized into a one-hour Reader's Theatre Format.

    The production will be followed by a session of:

    • Shared Stories
    • Strategies to make meaningful change and
    • How to take action!

    Find out about SB 124 (Leno), which takes California in the right direction by placing limitations on the use of solitary confinement in juvenile justice facilities and encouraging them to explore more positive and developmentally appropriate methods for working with youth.

    If the SHU Fits is produced by Dramastage Qumran, LA Laborfest, & Public Works Improvisational Theatre, and supported by the Bill of Rights Defense Center (BORDC), National Religious Campaign Against Torture (NRCAT) and the Prisoner Hunger Strike Solidarity Coalition (PHSSC).

    Endorsing Organizations (more to be added): American Friends Service Committee-LA, Anti-Racist Action, Café Intifada, Children’s Defense Fund of California, Global Women’s Strike, Progressive Christians Uniting (PCU), Stop olive Violence, The WE Empowerment Center, Youth Justice Coalition.

    nadim_nassar_1small.jpgSyria's conflict started in March 2011 with protests against President Bashar al Assad. More than 220,000 people have been killed and almost 4 million people have fled the country since then with ISIS an ISIL now making land grabs across the war-torn nation. 

    Sadly, as the catastrophe grows, some minority communities are feeling the strain a little more. ISIS appears to be conducting a coordinated campaign to eradicate all traces of Christianity from ISIS-held territory in Iraq and Syria. On Feb. 26, photographs were released of ISIS destroying Assyrian treasures and artifacts in the Museum of Mosul, and on March 5, ISIS destroyed the ancient city of Nimrud, a city dating back to 1400 B.C., which was one of the capitals of Assyria. Assyria was one of the world’s great civilizations. Today most Assyrians are members of the Eastern Rite Assyrian church.

    Join us as we explore this topic further with Rev. Nadim Nassar (left), an Anglican priest and the Director and Co-Founder of the Awareness Foundation. He was born and raised in Lattakia, Syria, to a Christian family. He studied in Beirut during the Lebanese civil war and was senior chaplain to the universities and colleges in London.

    "Syria's Christians can be the catalyst for peace." 

    We are honored to have Milia Islam-Majeed, the Executive Director of the South Coast Interfaith Council, and Ian McIlraith, the Director of Peace & Community Relations at Soka Gakkai International-USA, provide the interfaith responses

    An Interfaith Gathering on Police Brutality

     10-26-14_flier.jpg

    After the killing of Michael Brown in Ferguson, MO., after the killing of Ezell Ford here in South Los Angeles and several other people of color in the U.S., police brutality and racism have once again been given a national spotlight. How can people of faith and peace-loving people get involved to critically fight these injustices?

    Join CopWatch Santa Ana, Spiritual Youth for Justice and Peace (SYJP) and others as we talk critically on how to effectively fight against police terror and racism, especially from a youth and student perspective. Speakers and presenters TBA.

    Special performance by acclaimed social justice poet Matt Sedillo.

    Check out "L.A. is Full of Pigs."

    From the flames of a burning Air Force jet, he was called to the pulpit. 

    From the flames of the 1992 LA uprising following theRodney King verdict, he helped rebuild a city. When the flames died, Rev. Dr. Cecil L. Chip Murray worked ceaselessly to address the social and economic ills that had spawned the unrest. 

    His dedicated advocacy for all people, public faith, and civic life makes him a contemporary prophet of socially engaged Christianity. 

    He is truly a Courageous Peacemaker
