Ms. Viola Desmond - Halifax Canada


February 28, 2017
Viola Desmond
Viola Irene Desmond was a Canadian Black Nova Scotian businesswoman who challenged racial segregation at a film theatre in New Glasgow, Nova Scotia in 1946. Wikipedia

NationalityCanadian
==========
Viola Irene Desmond (July 6, 1914 – February 7, 1965) was a Canadian Black Nova Scotian businesswoman who challenged racial segregation at a film theatre in New Glasgow, Nova Scotia in 1946. She refused to leave a whites-only area of the Roseland Theatre and was unjustly convicted of a minor tax violation used to enforce segregation. Desmond's case is one of the most publicized incidents of racial discrimination in Canadian history and helped start the modern civil rights movement in Canada.
In 2010, Desmond was granted a posthumous pardon, the first to be granted in Canada. The government of Nova Scotia also apologized for prosecuting her for tax evasion, and acknowledged she was rightfully resisting racial discrimination.  

In 2016, the Bank of Canada announced that Desmond will be the first Canadian woman to be featured on the front of a banknote. She is slated to appear on the $10 bill in 2018.o

The RE-BOOT includes the creation of the Amani Book and Garden Club to connect all age groups, especially the seniors and youth in the enrichment of the various environments and minds.  The community has two resources to draw leadership.  

It also seeks the quality of life and economic development comment and commitment of residential and commercial stakeholders that rent, lease and own real estate as well and subsidies all taxes incurred in the area.

"My work with Worthington Horton, past Executive Director of Bethesda Senior Center, 2845 W. Fond du Lac Avenue, Milwaukee, Wisconsin, back in the 1990's served the Fond du Lac Corridor well with a place for the daily programming for the seniors and a place for community programming for economic development and quality of life to help encourage self-sustainability", said Mary Glass, Chair/CEO/CVO, MPA LLC.

Paul Ryan is a target of INDIVISIBLE MILWAUKEE The Hub - He Is Fundraising Off Health Care While Working to Kill It for Millions

Paul Ryan Is Fundraising Off Health Care While Working to Kill It for Millions


Tuesday, February 21, 2017
By Richard EskowPR Watch | News Analysis

House Speaker Paul Ryan has a reputation for policy wonkishness, which he doesn't deserve. He also has a reputation for raising boatloads of cash, which he does deserve. Care to guess which one's driving his healthcare priorities? For bonus points, name the two billionaire brothers who are glad to see him do it.

Ryan did a fundraising "physicians and dentist industry" breakfast on February 1 of this year, (here's the invitation obtained exclusively by the Center for Media and Democracy) and the suggested contributions were worth more than a cup of coffee and some scrambled eggs: $10,000 for a "sponsor," $5,000 for a "host," $2,500 for a political action committee, and $1,000 for an individual attendee.

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
