Greetings On-Line Family

On numerous occasions we have talked about, and expressed our concerns about the senseless violence committed by our youths to our youths, which is seriously plaguing our communities and cities.   Unfortunately, this problem is growing and we have really found no solutions to stopping the violence, which has left us weary.  However, for some time now we have been observing a local organization whose mission is to motivate and mobilize communities to take a proactive approach to reducing homicides and the senseless violence occurring in our cities.  This Organization is called "ROOT" (Reaching Out To Others Together), and it is founded by Mr. Kenneth E. Barnes, Sr., MS, as a result of the death of his son by gun violence in September 2001.   Mr. Barnes son was killed by a 17-year old youth in a robbery attempt.  The youth was later found to have committed at least two other murders for which the authorities were aware. Since that time, Mr. Barnes has advocated to lawmakers, community leaders, provider organizations and others his message of taking proactive measures rather than reactionary methods to reducing gun violence and increasing incidents of youth violence taking place in communities throughout America today. 

Actually, the loss of Mr. Barnes son (Kenneth E. Barnes, Jr.) lingers in my mind so clearly, because I had become a customer of Mr. Barnes, Jr., months before his life was taken.  Mr. Barnes, Jr. had a very nice apparel shop located in the "U" Street District - NW Washington DC, and on numerous occasions I visited his shop and purchased many items.  Mr. Barnes Jr.'s death came as a surprise to me and it was very disturbing, because the area his shop was located is nice, and he too was a very nice gentleman.  Of course folks were talking and coming up with some crazy theories, but Mr. Barnes Sr. was very vocal about his tragic loss, and did everything in his power to bring awareness to gun violence, stating "Too many lives are being lost; too many victims injured, and too many communities are being held hostage to this systemic and endemic tide of violence.  As a government, and as a community, we must begin to offer proactive, rather than reactive, alternatives."

 

  Currently Mr Barnes, Sr. Organization ROOT is forming a National Coalition/movement to address the epidemic of gun violence occurring in our cities daily and to urge Congressional intervention in the form of hearings to bring the epidemic of gun violence to the forefront of national awareness and discussions.  Actually, this week on July 26th, he was a guest speaker at the prestigious Rotary Club of Friendship Heights located in Chevy Chase, Maryland, talking about his mission and goals.

If you would like to pull your community together to help bring awareness of gun violence and to find a solution to stopping it, you will need to get in touch with Mr. Barnes, Sr.  His Organization is located at 811 Florida Avenue, N.W., Washington, DC 20011 and his Office phone # is (202) 332-ROOT/Toll Free (866) 570-ROOT, Fax # is (202) 332-8250.  Log on to his site to get more details at www.rootinc.org or drop him an e-mail: rootinc@rootinc.org.  Feel free to let him know that we at Arious directed you to contact him.

 

This week I also got a very informative and important e-mail that I thought I should share with you.  After reading it I felt I should pass it on.  Notice that this e-mail indicates the writer/sender is Susan L. Taylor of Essence Magazine which discusses and focuses on the State of Louisiana (the 2nd year anniversary is approaching after Hurricanes Katrina and Rita struck the state).  Bear in mind, that we are always careful of the things we send out (being that so much is distributed on the internet) and felt we needed to confirm the writer, but due to time constraints we were unable to confirm.  However, after "digging" further I was pleased with my findings and felt this must be shared with all on our on-line community.  Our brothers and sisters in Louisiana needs us and needs our help!!!  We need to bring awareness to their situation especially since it's approaching 2 years after this disaster.  It is awful and shameful that here in America, so many are still living in such bad conditions and something must be done to correct this problem.  Please read the below and feel free to pass on.

E-mail written by Susan L. Taylor of Essence Magazine

Greetings, all-

I'm just back from the Essence Music Festival in New Orleans, which was a grand success, contributed more than $120 million to the city and raised the hope and spirits of our people throughout the region.  While there, Tommy Dortch and I, our spouses Carole Dortch and Khephra Burns, Marcia and Michael Eric Dyson and PR guru Terrie Williams met privately with Mayor Ray Nagin about the deplorable and shameful conditions that the people of New Orleans and the Gulf Coast region are still suffering under, the obstacles the mayor has faced in trying to marshal resources for the recovery and the actions we all can and must take on August 29, the second anniversary of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita.

There must be a national outcry, a day of outrage, a day of protest, pray and possibility that the media cannot ignore; a day during which we demand that our national decision makers redirect our tax dollars away from war and war profiteering to create a regional Marshall Plan that restores New Orleans and the Gulf Coast.

8/29: A DAY OF PRESENCE

We Matter. We Care. We Act.

We're all weary, and our lives are overscheduled.  But taking a stand at this crucial moment is something we must do. As Frantz Fanon said, "Each generation must discover its mission and, having discovered its mission, either fulfill or betray it." Our generation is at grave risk of the latter.

There's not an issue killing our community that African Americans have stood solidly together on and remedied since the Civil Rights Movement. Let's write a new history. Let's stand together on this and win social and economic justice for the people of the Gulf Coast region. With the hope and courage garnered from that victory we can then address the failing schools, the over-incarceration of our young and the other ills sucking the life out of our community.

This is the call: On 8/29 the tens of thousands who can travel to New Orleans will gather for the massive demonstration being planned there.  (The exact time and place to follow).  Millions of Black people, our White, Latino, Native and Asian brothers and sisters - all who are committed to social and economic justice - are to call their congressional and state representatives and the White House to demand the restoration and betterment of New Orleans, Gulf Port, Biloxi and the entire Gulf Coast region. The telephone number for the White House switchboard is (202) 456-1414; the U. S. Congressional switchboard operators at (202) 224-3121 connect callers directly to their Senators' and Representatives' offices, after asking for a state of residence and zip code.

America will inundate Washington with a storm surge of phone calls, emails and faxes, loudly protesting this administration's shameful disregard for the people elected officials are supposed to protect.  We want the state and national headquarters of both the Republican and Democratic parties to get a startling and disturbing wake-up call: Black people will not be taken for granted.

On 8/29 we must be fully present with all of our caring, compassion and determination. Present on that day we must have our national leaders, presidential candidates and elected officials, faith communities, fraternities, sororities, union members and celebrities present in full force. 

Tyler Perry, Kimberly Elise, Regina King, Victoria Rowell, Sheryl Lee Ralph, Blair Underwood and others are with us in spirit, checking their schedules and awaiting details. CSI's Hill Harper is taping and is requesting the day off. Comedian and festival host Jonathan Slocumb, who kept the 8/29 initiative alive each day and evening before the tens of thousands of festival goers, cares and will be present on that day. Tom Joyner will be broadcasting from New Orleans on 8/29. We need Harry Belafonte and Danny Glover; we need Oprah, Spike, Halle, Angelina, Brad and Bono, Sean Penn, Wynton Marsalis, the hip-hop community et al.

And of course, we need a huge turnout from the people of New Orleans and the Gulf region and as many thousands of displaced evacuees as can manage to return and have their presence register in Washington, in the media and the national consciousness.

We want all presidential candidates to take heed of the national discontent and our resolve to hold them accountable.

Americans are unaware of how gravely people of the Gulf Coast region are still suffering. Mayor Nagin said, "We are physically, emotionally and spiritually tired." A flood of media nonsense has washed over the facts of life for the people of New Orleans: Nearly two years later, 200,000 people are still living in trailers. More than 250,000 evacuated residents are still scattered throughout the nation. Two years later, 70 public schools in Orleans Parish remain closed. There are no mental health services, no hospitals to serve the uninsured poor.

And yet, as Barack Obama pointed out the evening he spoke at the festival, $165 million a day is being spent on the war in Iraq. Other research puts the number at an average of $259 million each day – an amount that could pay for a full year in Head Start pre-school programs for 35,000 three- and four-year-olds. For less than the amount spent in one month in Iraq, all of New Orleans could have been completely rebuilt.

Marian Wright Edelman noted that the Day of Presence is taking place at an opportune moment, just before Congress reconvenes to make its final decision, along with the President, on whether or not to fund the State Children's Health Insurance Program (SCHIP) and help the dispersed children of Katrina get the mental health support and health coverage they desperately need.

Regional co-conveners include Mayor Nagin; Councilwoman Cynthia Willard-Lewis, who represents the Ninth Ward; committed activist lawyers Tracie Washington, president and CEO of The Louisiana Justice Institute, and Judith Browne, co-director of the Advancement Project; and the Rev. Norwood Thompson, Jr., president of the New Orleans chapter of SCLC. The Louisiana Justice Institute is the lead organization and is forming a broad coalition of regional and community-based groups to plan the day's program and work on the regional turnout.

Marian Wright Edelman will help to organize our faith communities, and Marcia Dyson is working on a framework to sustain the movement beyond 8/29.

Who will step up as national co-conveners, along with Melanie Campbell, executive director and CEO of the National Coalition on Black Civic Participation, ESSENCE Cares and those leaders who joined me in meeting with the mayor? Please contact Melanie Campbell at melaniec@ncbcp.org  and me at taylor@essence.com.

On August 28 The Louisiana Justice Institute, Mississippi Economic Policy Center, Gulf Coast Young Leaders Network and a coalition of regional organizations, with support from Oxfam, Rutgers University and other institutions, are also convening a policy forum: Recovery and Renewal for Gulf Coast Working Families. For more information about the policy forum and the time and place of the 8/29: A Day of Presence rally, log on to the Institute's Website,  http://www.louisianajusticeinstitute.org, after July 17.

We need all hands on deck. Our job - all of us – is to mobilize the masses to act. Together we have the compassion, the will and spiritual resources to help our sisters and brothers in the Gulf region to reclaim and better their lives. They matter and deserve to be treated with the dignity and respect due every human being, none more than tax-paying African Americans, whose ancestors helped build and make the nation the wealthiest on earth.

Please give this email, and the related ones that will follow, the widest possible distribution. Let's organize our community to stand up and stand together as we haven't done in decades. With the needs of our people - not our egos - leading the way, we will win.

No forces arrayed against us can withstand our unity and love.

One Love,

Susan
