Indivisible - Milwaukee (The Hub) on YouTube


MILWAUKEE | Milwaukee Professionals Association LLC newest Initiative is connected to the Indivisible Movement.  

"We see the Indivisible Movement as a giant collaboration effort with workable tools served up at the right time for solidarity", said Mary Glass - Chief Visionary Officer of MPA LLC.
=================

Indivisible - Milwaukee, The Hub - takes the approach that is multi-faceted.  Yes.  Donald John Trump is a source of concern.   However, he is only part of the puzzle. All elected officers (local, county, school board, state and federal) are of concern for Indivisible - Milwaukee (The Hub).  We look at, follow the money and evaluate IMPACT.   

Wisconsin Public Education
For example, Milwaukee Public Schools is where We, the People, rubber and road meets for public education because MPS is the catalyst for all funds for public education - based on population.  However, we must address the decision-makers and who they appoint for results.  As it relates to Charter schools - the area of concentration of Betsy Devos, Trump's pick for Secretary of Education - our focus must take a look at the government representatives for Charter schools.  They include the city of Milwaukee (Tom Barrett, Mayor and 15-member city council) and UW-Milwaukee (Mark Mone, Chancellor).  Our area of IMPACT is local government and its representatives.

We must KNOCK on, SPEAK with, and VISIT all who represent the People.

INDIVISIBLE - Milwaukee (The Hub) Wednesday Talk @ East w/Prof. Soroush Aslani

Photos by:  Craig Jackson 
Professor Soroush Aslani - UW-Whitewater
MILWAUKEE | Professor Soroush Aslani was present for Wednesday Talk to speak with individuals learning about the Indivisible Movement.  A group of concerned activists and individuals curious to what the Indivisible Movement was about gathered for the first caucus session to make an assessment of who is out there and what we are doing to address the deeply troubling efforts of Donald John Trump.

The airwaves are filled with efforts in the federal courts to stop the Executive Order to Ban Muslims from America.  It has caused chaos in families that travel from their homeland to America, refugees, immigrants - those seeking or already have a Green Card, the heavy vetting of 2 years before eligible to come to America and live and/or go to school; as well as to become a citizen.  The Ban has turned everything topsy-turvy.

Professor Aslani shared some hardships and noted the Order was "blatant discrimination".

He was quite clear about how there has been a broad-brush" of negativity for all Muslim due to the condemned efforts of some. 

He reminded the audience of the wonderful achievements of the students coming to America and contributing to the academic world.  That, just as there are elements of wrong in all races and society, it should not label ALL of /from a particular group.

================
We send a SHOUT-OUT to Virginia Hirsh - Indivisible Bucking Beaver and fellow visitors that came to the earlier planning session, but, the time given was incorrect.

================
Announcement
Tomorrow's event to support Professor Aslani and students is being held at UW-Milwaukee, Spaights Building, 11am - 1pm, on Thursday, February 9, 2017.  Join us in support.

SHOW 6 Black History - Public Policy w/MARY GLASS & Company - David Latona/MEDC & Attorney Jessica Klein

David Latona, President, Milwaukee Economic Development Corporation will share background and updates regarding Pete's Fruit Market being built at the Gateway of Bronzeville at North Avenue & Dr. Martin Luther King Drive.  He will also share the economic development provided for the predominately African American neighborhoods in 2016.

Attorney Jessica KleinLAW OFFICE OF JESSICA A. KLEIN, Oconomowoc, WI, is the Attorney for DAMIEN PAYNE, a man found "not guilty" but sent to prison.  She will visit Show 6 - Public Policy w/MARY GLASS & Company to provide insight.

*****************************
Damian Payne & Megan Heath
Taken from JSOnline article by Gina Barton, February 4, 2017....
A jury found Damien Payne not guilty of being a felon in possession of a firearm and of carrying a concealed weapon.
But he was still sent to prison for more than three years.
That’s because Payne, who got out of prison in 2010, was being supervised by the Department of Corrections at the time. As a result, he was subject to a little-known department rule that says it doesn’t matter if ex-offenders on probation or parole are acquitted — they can be sent back to prison based on the same allegations.
Payne, 35, said he didn’t know his girlfriend’s gun was in the glove compartment of his car when he was pulled over in July. The jury believed him. His probation and parole agent didn’t.
Milwaukee County Circuit Judge Stephanie Rothstein has agreed to review Payne's revocation case and decide whether the department acted “erroneously, arbitrarily, capriciously and contrary to law,” as his attorney, Jessica A. Klein, contends.

Public Policy w/MARY GLASS & Company - SHOW 5, Dr. Rogers (Black History) and Mitch & Virginia (Bucking Beavers Indivisible)

SHOW 5 - Public Policy w/MARY GLASS & Company
MILWAUKEE - February 3, 2017

Public Policy w/MARY GLASS & Company Show 5 had 
Dr. William Williams, Educator, Historian and Talk Show host from Atlanta, GA (via telephone) to kick-off Black History Month with his in-depth background of Dr. Carter G. Woodson, Founder of Black History Week and the importance of sharing one's history.
Dr. Rogers has completed extensive work in Education - a retired professor from the University of Wisconsin - Milwaukee after 22 years.  His hands-on outreach as a community lecturer, writer, and researcher has provided enhancements in leadership in well-known organizations like Wisconsin Black Historical Society and 100 Black men.   
His explanation of the success of a "Saturday School" concept prompted the host to commit to creating such a program during Black History Month - volunteerism with a commitment of leaders in the neighborhoods - for training youth and young adults.

L-R:  Mitch Haycock, Mary Glass, and Virginia Hirsch
Virginia Hirsch and Mitch Haycock, Bucking Badger Indivisible were the other two commentators for Show 5.  
The Indivisible Movement is an idea that mushroomed thanks to a Guide created by US Congress staffers.  It is an idea for individuals and groups of the citizenry to organize, and to form outreach to each other and elected officials to effectuate changes similar to the efforts of the Tea Party. 
L-R:  Virginia Hirsch & Mitch Haycock - Bucking Beaver Indivisible
Virgina and Mitch have in less than three (3) weeks met with others and taken testimonies.  Additionally, they have visited the offices of all 3 of Wisconsin federal elected officials - Senator Ron Johnson and Senator Tammy Baldwin and US Congresswoman Gwen Moore.

The Best Things in Life are Free - Sam Cooke



Lyrics
The moon belongs to everyone
Best things in life they're free
Stars belong to everyone
They cling there for you and for me
Flowers in spring
The robins that sings
The sunbeams that shine
They're yours and their mine
Love can come to everyone
Best things in life they're free
Moon belongs to everyone
The best things in life, they're free
Stars belong to everyone
They glitter there for you and for me
They are yours and me
Flowers in spring
The robins that sing
Sunbeams that shine
They're yours and their mine
Love can come to everyone
Best things in life they're free
All of the good things
Every one of the better things
The best, best things in life
They're free
=====================
SAMUEL COOK (January 22, 1931 – December 11, 1964), known professionally as Sam Cooke, was an American singer, songwriter, and entrepreneur.
Influential as both a singer and composer, he is commonly known as the King of Soul for his distinctive vocals and importance within popular music. His pioneering contributions to soul music contributed to the rise of Aretha FranklinBobby WomackAl GreenCurtis MayfieldStevie WonderMarvin Gaye, and Billy Preston, and popularized the likes of Otis Redding and James Brown. AllMusic biographer Bruce Eder wrote that Cooke was "the inventor of soul music", and possessed "an incredible natural singing voice and a smooth, effortless delivery that has never been surpassed".
Cooke had 30 U.S. top 40 hits between 1957 and 1964, plus three more posthumously. Major hits like "You Send Me", "A Change Is Gonna Come", "Cupid", "Chain Gang", "Wonderful World", "Another Saturday Night", and "Twistin' the Night Away" are some of his most popular songs. Cooke was also among the first modern black performers and composers to attend to the business side of his musical career. He founded both a record label and a publishing company as an extension of his careers as a singer and composer. He also took an active part in the Civil Rights Movement.
On December 11, 1964, at the age of 33, Cooke was shot and killed by Bertha Franklin, the manager of the Hacienda Motel in Los Angeles, California. After an inquest, the courts ruled Cooke's death to be a justifiable homicide. Since that time, the circumstances of his death have been called into question by Cooke's family.  Wikipedia

Documentary - JAMES BALWIN - I Am Not your Negro by Haitian-born filmmaker Raoul Peck


From that unfinished project, the Haitian-born filmmaker Raoul Peck has made a splendid documentary, "I Am Not Your Negro." The words we hear in voice-over, spoken in an artful, Baldwinian cadence by Samuel L. Jackson, belong entirely to the author of the book that never came to pass. Everything Baldwin said then, about race and America, speaks with urgent prescience to the America Baldwin (who died in 1987) never saw but saw coming, because he'd seen it before: Rodney King. Ferguson. Black Lives Matter. All of it. The necessity for all of it.
..................Michael Phillips - Critic, Chicago Tribune


"I Am Not Your Negro" — 4 stars

INDIVISIBLE - Milwaukee (the Hub) comments on Harley Davidson and Trump Visits

Matthew S Levatich - CEO, Harley Davidson

February 2, 2017
MILWAUKEE | Mary Glass, Chief Visionary Officer, Milwaukee Professionals Association LLC, calls for Indivisible groups in the Milwaukee and Chicago area to speak up and out - to put on notice Harley Davidson Milwaukee - the importance of RESPECT by those in the public square in manufacturing and all areas of trade and labor when it comes to hosting events with Donald John Trump in Milwaukee as well as at the White House.

According to a telephone call by Glass today to Maripat Blankeheim, Director Corporate Communication, executives of Harley Davidson are meeting today with Trump at the White House.

CNN Politics
Harley-Davidson issued a statement Tuesday night saying they "don't have, nor did we have, a scheduled visit from the President this week at any of our facilities."
"We are proud to have hosted Presidential visits at our facilities. Three of the last five presidents -- Ronald Reagan, George W. Bush and Bill Clinton -- have visited us at our facilities. These visits are a testament to the pride and passion of our employees and their great work building Harley-Davidson motorcycles," said Maripat Blankenheim, director of Harley-Davidson's corporate communication. "We look forward to hosting the president in the future."
We must remind Levatichthem of the disgraceful manner in which so many in the United States and elsewhere have been; and, are daily being vilified by DJT, the 45th President. 

To remind Harley Davidson that if they respect their brand, want to support their brand, want to remain true to its stockholders for revenue sales, be a corporation in "good standing" and foster an image that is not counter-productive to labor, racist, misogynist, homophobic, and disrespectful to the Muslim religion or those individuals who are Muslim, they should not be seen aiding and abetting the wrongful behavior now or going forward.

ALVIN AILEY, the Man that left a GIFT to all of us

Alvin Ailey - Artist
Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater grew from a now-fabled performance in March 1958 at the 92nd Street Y in New York City. Led by Alvin Ailey and a group of young African-American modern dancers, that performance changed forever the perception of American dance.
The Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater is a modern dance company based in New York, New York. It was founded in 1958 by choreographer and dancer Alvin Ailey. Wikipedia
The Ailey company has gone on to perform for an estimated 25 million people at theaters in 48 states and 71 countries on six continents – as well as millions more through television broadcasts, film screenings, and online platforms.
In 2008, a U.S. Congressional resolution designated the Company as “a vital American cultural ambassador to the world” that celebrates the uniqueness of the African-American cultural experience and the preservation and enrichment of the American modern dance heritage. When Mr. Ailey began creating dances, he drew upon his "blood memories" of Texas, the blues, spirituals, and gospel as inspiration, which resulted in the creation of his most popular and critically acclaimed work, Revelations. Although he created 79 ballets over his lifetime, Mr. Ailey maintained that his company was not exclusively a repository for his own work.


Alvin Ailey said that one of America’s richest treasures was the cultural heritage of the African-American - ”sometimes sorrowful, sometimes jubilant, but always hopeful.” This enduring classic is a tribute to that heritage and to Ailey’s genius. Using African-American traditional spirituals, this suite fervently explores the places of deepest grief and holiest joy in the soul.
