16 Days of ARTivism! Closing celebration – Songs for a New Beginning – for Healing & Education

Friday December 10th, 2010  Teatro del MCCLA, 7:00pm
Suggested donation: $5-$20

Mission Cultural Center for Latino Arts 2868 Mission Street, San Francisco CA 94110

In recognition of the 62nd anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and the closing of the 16 days of ARTivism for the healing of violence toward women and girls, MamaCoAtl hosts an evening of poetry, spoken word and performance art dedicated to ending violence against women, immigrants and the LGBT community. The multiple ways that people from these communities are the targets of violence represent the most egregious violations of human rights today. Tonight, we celebrate our human rights and reclaim those that have been taken from us.

Featured artists: Cihuatl Ce, HeadRush Productions, MamaCoatl, Yosimar Reyes, a special performance by Violeta Luna, and much more.

Activities to raise public awareness that say “END Violence Against Women & Girls!”

Sincerely,

“Happy Birthday, 19th Amendment (And thanks to Harry T. Burn’s mom)”

August 18, 2010  — Andrew Malcolm

The right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of sex. Congress shall have power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation.

Today is the 90th anniversary the 19th Amendment to the United States Constitution, the one that gave women the right to vote after a full century of organization, agitation and marching.

On this date in 1920 the Tennessee General Assembly became the 36th state to ratify the amendment, thus making it official.

Happy Birthday, 19th Amendment; Thank You, Suffragettes and the men who walked the walk of equality with them!

The Nineteenth Amendment (Amendment XIX) to the United States Constitution prohibits each state and the federal government from denying any citizen the right to vote based on that citizen‘s sex. It was ratified on August 18, 1920.

Did you know that the Women’s National Book Association http://www.wnba-books.org/ was established in 1917, before women-citizens in America even had the right to vote?

The Women’s National Book Association is a national organization of women and men who work with and value books. WNBA exists to promote reading and to support the role of women in the community of the book.  WNBA has been a Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) member of the United Nations since 1959.  http://www.wnba-books.org Jill A. Tardiff & Nancy Stewart are our UN DPI/ NGO representatives http://www.wnba-books.org/chapters-members/wnba-officers/

I am so proud to be a member of WNBA. I think my mother, grandmother and great-grandmother would be proud too. If you’re in the San Francisco Bay Area on Sunday Sept 12, 2010, 2:00-5:00pm, come by the San Francisco Public Library-Main Branch…

15 May 2010  Delightful people and guardian angels made Asian Heritage Street Celebration a sunny day for me.

If you were at today’s AHSC, I welcome your comments to this post. Just click on the title of this post to get the boxes. After you compose your comment, save a copy, then press the “submit comment” button. Thanks!

Even last night I wasn’t sure whether I’d make it to the event today.  I believe Marisa and my mom must have sent me a dose of energy.

Thank you, Margie Yee Webb, creator of Cat Mulan, for orchestrating the California Writers Club booth at the Asian Heritage Street Celebration.  We were in front of the San Francisco Main Branch Library on Larkin Street, between the Public Library booth and Kara’s Cupcakes–what could be better?  Margie Yee Webb, Lloyd Lofthouse, Frances Kakugawa and I had fun with dear fans and friends.  Thank you, Margie’s beautiful sisters and niece, Frances’s sweetheart, all the kind folks at AHSC, and of course my hubby Lyle Ryan who dragged a second suitcase of books onto BART with me. Guardian Angels brought us sunshine in the afternoon.
