Picture from today's presentation at UNE by Penobscot Nation Chief Kirk Francis. Francis discussed at length the history of Maine's implementation of the 1980 Land Claims Settlement Act, which has hamstrung Maine's Tribes, adding an 'extra layer' to discussions. Chief Francis implied it may be time to revisit the Act. His talk focused on the effects of the relationship with the State of Maine regarding Water Rights, citing the Penobscot River as "a living entity, important to our cultural identity and health and welfare as a people." Francis also cited the adversarial actions by the state's current administration, including those affecting sovereignty, and the Violence Against Women Act.

Chief Francis noted the persistence needed in court decisions, citing a "wait and see" mentality while the 1st Circuit Court is asked to appeal its 2017 decision removing the river from the Nation. "If it wasn't for that spirit in our ancestors, none of us would be here today". Chief took questions at the end of the presentation, including those by concerned citizens wondering how they could be of assistance, a hopeful sign. A thorough, patient, and passionate conversation.

Did you know that passing the #ViolenceAgainstWomenAct is a central part of NNEDV's history? 📜 In 1994, we led efforts to pass the landmark #VAWA, authored by then-Senator #JoeBiden. The historic law was the first federal legislation to strengthen the government’s response to crimes perpetrated against victims of #DomesticViolence, #SexualAssault, #DatingViolence, and #stalking.⠀

Today we bid farewell to a most remarkable woman, New York Congresswoman LOUISE SLAUGHTER, a vocal progressive (and VERY early member of the Daily Kos Community) who fought relentlessly for equal rights and opportunities for ALL Americans.
Born and raised in Kentucky coal country, Slaughter studied microbiology and public health at the University of Kentucky before moving to Western New York with her husband Bob. Elected to the House of Representatives in 1986, Slaughter has long-been the only microbiologist in Congress. Her myriad accomplishments in Congress–from as an author of the Violence Against Women Act and the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act, to her passionate fight for the McKinney-Vento Homeless Housing Assistance Act and securing better body armor for US troops in Iraq–are proof of just how much good one person can do when given the chance.
Thank you for your service, Representative Slaughter.

It's #barccwalk4change season again! As many of you know, I've supported Boston Area Rape Crisis Center and their free, trauma-informed, survivor-centric resources since 2012.
These photos are from November's #barccgala, one of my favorite events of the year with some of my favorite people. I'm so proud of all my fellow volunteers, especially the SSB & the incredible Kalie, who told her story beautifully to a room of 500 or so people.
If you're interested in making a tangible difference in the wake of #MeToo, consider making a donation to @barccofficial or sharing my fundraising page:

In October, #YWCA staff were giving a tour of their #Nashville #domesticviolence shelter when they heard a woman screaming in pain. She had arrived at the shelter after hobbling on a broken leg for three days.

YWCA staff and medical technicians rushed the woman to an ambulance that had been summoned, and the tour resumed. The most unusual part of the incident is that it wasn’t all that unusual, according to Tracy DeTomasi, who was leading the tour that day. “That’s just a constant,” DeTomasi said of the woman’s horrible injuries.

DeTomasi is the vice president of domestic violence services at the #NashvilleYWCA, one of hundreds of shelters for #domesticabuse victims nationwide that fear for their future — and the future of the people they help — under President Donald Trump. “These services are needed, our shelter is at functional capacity almost every day, and we need more beds. This problem isn’t going away,” DeTomasi told BuzzFeed News.

It costs $2.5 million a year to keep that Nashville #shelter open, DeTomasi said. Like many YWCAs around the country, there aren’t enough private donations to cover the bill. To supplement, these shelters turn to the federal government for help, often in the form of #ViolenceAgainstWomenAct grants. But now they’re fearful that President Trump will take that funding away.

The Hill recently reported that the #Trumpadministration is considering a federal budget blueprint drawn up by the #HeritageFoundation, a #conservativethinktank, that includes a call to eliminate funding for #VAWA #grants. Although the budget has yet to be officially proposed and would require congressional approval, the mere suggestion that Trump may gut VAWA funding shocked advocates after years of bipartisan support. “I think it would be exceptionally cruel to cut services for victims of gender-based violence, but I also think it would be foolish,” Kiersten Stewart, director of public policy at the national nonprofit #FuturesWithoutViolence, told BuzzFeed News. If the cuts went through, Stewart continued, advocates “would mobilize the field like we’ve never seen

Abusive behavior towards any human being in any way shape or form cannot be difused or eradicated by attending anger management counseling, it just won't work, and there are reasons why it does not work. As an advocate I do not advocate ending relationships, but I do advocate life and the right to living it free from abuse, power and control. I will continue to do so even if I'm ousted from communities of faith. The myth that women in church, mosque, or temple do not suffer domestic violence is a lie from the pits of hell. I don't answer to critics but to a higher authority. Telling someone to stay in a abusive relationship and insisting couple counseling solely on a faith teaching that God hates divorce, is playing with someone's life. Taking liberties that have not been granted to you.

Just thought I'd put that out there.... #nomoreviolence #Stopthewaronwomen #imnotyourpunchingbag #metoo #timesup #womenrule #equalrights #stopgaslighting #safetyplanning #resources #makethecall #vawa #stopfgm #stoprape #stopviolenceagainstwomen #sextrade #sexualabuse #getoutsis #hewilldoitagain #verbalabuse
