Que esa herencia real y dominio del estable, nazca en usted, alegre su corazón, y permanezca sobre sus hombros”.A continuación el mensaje de la Obispa Presidente:Mensaje de Navidad del 2013Porque un niño nos es nacido, un hijo nos es dado, y el dominio estará sobre su hombro. Se llamará su nombre: Admirable Consejero, Dios Fuerte, Padre Eterno, Príncipe de Paz. Isaías 09:06Isaías pronuncia estas palabras a un pueblo que recuerda el yugo de la esclavitud en sus hombros. Han estado esperando por este niño, cuyo nacimiento transforma ese yugo en un manto de autoridad. Se les promete que esta autoridad seguirá creciendo a medida que se establece un reino de paz – con justicia y rectitud para todos y para siempre.Esta promesa es hablada de nuevo a la gente de todas las edades, a aquellos que han vivido bajo la opresión o en la depresión oscura, a los hambrientos y enfermos y encarcelados. El nacimiento que celebramos ofrece esperanza en la Palabra hecha carne, que viene entre nosotros para sanar y recorrer este camino con nosotros. El manto del dominio sobre sus hombros comienza en los pañales de un niño nacido en la más humilde de las circunstancias. Sin embargo, ese dominio es reconocido incluso por los extranjeros que vienen de lejos. Ese manto de la autoridad sigue creciendo, a través de una vida ofrecida para los demás, planteadas en una nueva vida, y se transmite a las nuevas generaciones portadora de la carne de Dios. Dondequiera que se haga justicia y rectitud, ese dominio está creciendo, llevada en hombros del Príncipe de la Paz.Él viene otra vez, teniendo la gracia de Aquel cuya imagen Él lleva en carne. Búscalo, canta su nueva canción, declara su gloria, y habla de la buena nueva a todas las naciones: Dios reina, y Él viene trayendo  justicia y la verdad sobre sus hombros.“Que usted descubra ese dominio humilde nacido de nuevo en los bordes de la conciencia del mundo. Que esa herencia real y dominio del estable, nazca en usted, alegre su corazón, y permanezca sobre sus hombros”. Llévela afuera en paz, este año y a lo largo de los siglos.Reverendísima Katharine Jefferts SchoriObispa Presidente y PrimadaLa Iglesia Episcopal Tags Episcopal Church releases new prayer book translations into Spanish and French, solicits feedback Episcopal Church Office of Public Affairs Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W.

Program The Lacey is a 26-unit, four level, 25,000 SF residential building organized around a three-level central corridor/atrium. Outdoor space is ample with a communal second floor terrace and rooftop, as well as private balconies, courtyards, and terraces for the units.

The buildings comprising the neighborhood are predominately Victorian-era, hastily constructed, row houses by speculative builders and real estate developers in response to the rapid growth of the federal government following the Civil War. During the turn of the 20th century the U Street Corridor was home to the nation’s largest African American community until it was surpassed by Harlem in the 1920’s. The Neighborhood remained a cultural center for African Americans, producing the likes of Pearl Bailey and Duke Ellington. Following the 1968 assassination of Martin Luther King, Jr., and consequent riots, the neighborhood went into rapid decline until the 1990’s. One of the first transformative projects for the neighborhood was a 5 row house development developed and designed on vacant drug infested lots by Division1. This was soon followed by the W Street residence, only a couple of blocks away, also developed and designed by Division1, and most recently the Lacey condominiums. With these 3 projects, Division1 anchored the neighborhood and reinstated its cultural significance — now the design-center of Washington, DC.Save this picture!© Debi Fox PhotographyThe Site The site of the Lacey was a former parking lot for the Florida Avenue Grill, a landmark African American soul-food establishment that opened in 1944, and one of the few restaurants that survived through decades of decline. The owner of the Florida Avenue Grill commissioned Division1 to build a forward-looking building that would depart from the brick and mortar tenant buildings of the declining past and express an optimism for the future while symbolizing a dedication to the neighborhood and its rebirth. Thus the building was named the Lacey in honor of Lacey C. Wilson Sr. and Lacey C. Wilson Jr. longtime proprietors of the Florida Avenue Grill. Save this picture!© Debi Fox PhotographyThe Design From the street the Lacey can be seen as one large volume set upon a lower volume comprised of duplexes with private entrances, stoops, small front yards (typical of the surrounding row homes). The larger volume holding the various units is actually split in two creating a full-height corridor that runs the length of the site. Each end of the corridor is full-height glass (a light steel frame exterior staircase pushes out from one side that takes residents to a communal terrace and rooftop) allowing for maximum light and ventilation. All access to the units is contained in this central space by means of staggered landings that maximize openness. All of the units have either a balcony, while many have a balcony and either a terrace or courtyard.Project gallerySee allShow lessVideo: ‘Cloud City’ by Tomas SaracenoArticlesArup ExpansionArticlesProject locationAddress:Washington, DC, USALocation to be used only as a reference.

Demand for services & funding difficulties top challenges for local charities, says LocalGiving report

It also recommends that government, grant makers, voluntary sector organisations and work together to provide more accessible unrestricted funding opportunities for local charities.Additional recommendations:Continued support for local charities to build fundraising capacity, to help them diversify their sources of income.Accessible and ongoing training opportunities, ideally including face-to-face support and the provision of help to retain staff and volunteers to avoid loss of skills later down the line.Funders should take responsibility for reducing inefficiencies in grant application processes to enable more time to be dedicated to service delivery.John Barrett, chief executive of the Small Charities Coalition, said:“This survey is an important benchmark of the sector, and reflects the wider picture we are seeing. It is clear that people are relying on small charities more than ever. But they are facing increasing financial pressures, with cuts to grants. To survive, it is crucial that they get support they need. Small charities are brilliant at innovation and having to think creatively with limited resources. For them to be able to collaborate they need the financial security to have the headspace to connect. We need to take action based on these findings.”Ceri Edwards, director of policy and communications at the Institute of Fundraising also commented on the report, saying:“This report is a timely reminder of the challenges that smaller charities face in securing support for the essential work they do for the wellbeing of local communities. It’s no surprise that many smaller charities are struggling in the current funding environment, but with demand for their services ever-increasing it’s crucial that they find new ways to raise money to deliver these services.”The report was released to coincide with last week’s Local Charities Day (16th December). LocalGiving has also announced that over £23,000 was raised for 200 local charities on Local Charities Day through its #GiveMe5 campaign, which saw it double 1,000 £5 donations made to them on the day.  265 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis11 Local charities are facing an ever-increasing demand for services coupled with greater difficulty in finding funding, according to LocalGiving’s Local Charity & Community Group Sustainability Report 2016.73% of respondents reported an increase in demand for their services, while less than 2% reported a decrease, and 78% of groups predict further increases in demand over the coming year. Out of the groups predicting an increase in demand, 18% said they felt sufficiently resourced to meet this demand.These concerns were most pronounced among charities with an annual turnover of between £501k and £1m, with 15% of these groups confident that they can cope with rising demands.Short-term, local charities are largely optimistic about their survival, but less so over the longer term. 79% of respondents are confident that their organisation can sustain itself financially over the next 12 months. However, this drops to 46% when stretched over a five-year period.While 12% saw themselves as having been at risk of closure over the last 12 months, a much greater percentage of 76% had reduced staff numbers, while 35% had seen a discontinuation in one or more of their services.Biggest challengesGenerating income and achieving financial security was the biggest issue with 57% of groups seeing this as their most pressing issue over the coming 12 months. 76% of groups highlight “competition for grants and contracts” as a financial concern, with 65% seeing “generating donations from the general public” as a challenge.43% of groups said they had dipped into their reserves in the last year, with 36% of groups citing building reserves as a financial concern. However, this is a decrease from 2015, when 43% cited it as a concern.Income sourcesGrants were the primary source of income for 50% of groups in the previous financial year, with 51% predicting grants to be their primary income source in the current financial year.Behind grants and contracts, donations generate more income for local charities than any other channel. This is the case for both the previous and current financial year and overall, 79% of groups have received funding from the general public in the last 12 months, but 65% see difficulty in generating donations from the general public as a current financial concern.Grants and donations are particularly important to micro-charities, with 52% identifying grants as their primary source of income, and 23% saying the same about donations: more than double that of larger groups.Social investment provides a much smaller proportion of funds overall. 15% of respondents had even considered social investment as a funding source for their organisation; and more than half of respondents were unsure what social investment was. Groups with a medium to high annual income were more likely to have considered social investment than smaller groups. 40% of groups with an annual income of £501k – £1 million had considered social investment, compared to 9% of groups with an annual income of £0 – £50k.Table with focus on 4 regions to highlight the regional variations seen in the survey Advertisementlast_img read more

GM recorta empleos: los trabajadores se defienden

first_imgDetroit – General Motors anunció el 26 de noviembre que planea recortar más de 14.000 empleos y cerrar cuatro plantas en los EE. UU., una en Canadá y dos más en ubicaciones aún no nombradas.La CEO de GM, Mary Barra, quien devengo $22 millones el año pasado, eligió sus palabras con cuidado cuando reveló el plan. Dijo que en varias ocasiones el próximo año las plantas se quedarían “sin asignar”. Eso significaba que los productos que se fabrican actualmente en la planta se suspenderán y que no se asignarán nuevos productos a las plantas mencionadas en el anuncio.Barra evitó decir las palabras “cerrado” o “inactivo”. El contrato actual entre GM y United Auto Workers dice: “[La] compañía no cerrará, inactiva, ni venderá parcial o totalmente, escisión, escisión , consolidar o eliminar de cualquier otra forma, cualquier planta, activo o unidad de negocios de cualquier tipo”.La UAW ha rechazado el doble discurso de GM. Cualquier cierre o ralentí de la planta, independientemente de la selección de palabras, infringe el contrato actual, que no expira hasta septiembre de 2019.El presidente de UAW International, Gary Jones, criticó la “cruel decisión de GM”, declarando: “La UAW y nuestros miembros se enfrentarán a esta decisión de GM a través de todas las vías legales, contractuales y de negociación colectiva abiertas a nuestra membresía”. (The Hill, 6 de diciembre)Miembros, aliados y otros sindicatos se les pide que escriban cartas a la compañía mostrando su oposición a los cierres.GM afirma que los cortes son esenciales porque hay más plantas de las que necesita la empresa para el mercado actual de vehículos y muchas plantas solo están ejecutando un turno de producción. El presidente de la UAW, Jones, dice que esto se debe a las decisiones de la compañía de trasladar cada vez más la producción a México y otros países de bajos salarios.Sin embargo, Jones está adoptando una posición nacionalista limitada en la lucha por empleos sindicales decentes al exigir “leyes fiscales y comerciales que recompensen la inversión de los Estados Unidos”. La declaración de Jones ni siquiera reconoce el ataque a los trabajadores canadienses de GM.La oficialidad sindical persigue una estrategia legalista y estrecha, combinada con una táctica dócil de escribir cartas. Lo que se necesita es activismo militante.Las compañías ricas violan rutinariamente todo tipo de leyes: la antidiscriminación, el derecho a organizar sindicatos, la protección del medio ambiente. Sólo una lucha de masas los hará responsables.Activistas de base planean la lucha laboral-comunitariaCaravanas de trabajadores, celebraron una reunión el 8 de diciembre en Detroit para establecer una estrategia contra los cierres. La reunión comenzó con un video creado por Sean Crawford, quien trabaja en la planta de GM Detroit-Hamtramck, que se encuentra en el bloque de recortes.Crawford dijo que las ciudades de Michigan de Flint, Pontiac y Saginaw habían sido “machacadas y escupidas” por GM. Añadió: “Todos sabemos qué es lo que realmente busca GM, lo único que han buscado, más dinero”. Su video terminó con un llamado a “unirse a través de las fronteras para construir un movimiento de personas de clase trabajadora”.Esto marcó la pauta para escuchar una serie de oradores y una animada discusión sobre por qué los cierres de plantas no son aceptables y qué acciones podría tomar una lucha real. En la reunión se dirigieron el presidente emérito del Ayuntamiento de Detroit, JoAnn Watson; La representante estatal y senadora electa del estado, Stephanie Chang; Andy Gooderis, representante de la congresista electa Rashida Tlaib; Ghana Goodwin-Dye, presidente de la Local 909 de la UAW, cuya planta en Warren está programada para cerrar; y Jerry Goldberg, en representación de Moratorium Now! Coalición para detener ejecuciones hipotecarias, desalojos y cierres de servicios públicos.La reunión fue copresidida por el ex presidente de Local 909 y presidente de la tienda, Frank Hammer, y por Martha Grevatt, fideicomisaria local de UAW 869.Los oradores señalaron el hecho de que los cierres de la planta no solo violaron el contrato, sino que también violaron los términos de las exenciones fiscales estatales y federales que habían atado los donativos a la creación de empleos por parte de GM.Existen muchas alternativas para cerrar las plantas, incluida la reorganización de las mismas para combatir la emergencia del cambio climático. En lugar de construir camiones de alto consumo de gasolina, los trabajadores automotrices podrían construir vehículos eléctricos limpios, autobuses y trenes para el transporte público, así como paneles solares y turbinas eólicas.Las leyes de dominio eminente, que se utilizaron en la década de 1980 para apoderarse y destruir todo un vecindario para que GM pudiera construir la planta de Detroit-Hamtramck, podrían usarse en cambio para apoderarse de la planta y ejecutarla bajo el control de la comunidad sindical.El grupo decidió manifestarse fuera del auto show anual de Detroit en enero y formar un contingente en la marcha anual del Día de Martin Luther King. Los trabajadores también discutieron la necesidad de crear comités de lucha dentro de las plantas.Una colección de solidaridad obtuvo más de $125 para los trabajadores despedidos y heridos de GM en Colombia que han estado luchando por la justicia desde 2011.La reunión también celebró el décimo aniversario de la acción inaugural de Auto Caravan. El grupo se fundó cuando envió una caravana de automóviles a Washington, DC, en 2009 para exigir que que se incluyera una cláusula a las términos del contrato de no concesiones a los términos de los rescates de GM y Chrysler por parte del gobierno de los Estados Unidos.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more
