Gena Davis y que ella dirige junto con el Rdo. John K. Graham, en Houston, Texas y más allá. Foto de Jonathan Dow/YogaMass[Episcopal News Service] Algo sucedió cuando la Rda. Gena Davis se balanceó en una sola pierna para adoptar la posición del árbol y levanto los brazos al cielo mientras se acuclillaba para la posición de silla en su clase de yoga. Algo transformador.“Comenzó como un ejercicio físico, y puede convertirse en un ejercicio espiritual. Y es ahí cuando surge la verdadera interrogante: ¿Qué es esto, y cómo puedo darle sentido a esto como sacerdote?”, dijo Davis, que era vicaria de la iglesia episcopal de La Gracia [Grace Episcopal Church] en Houston, Texas, en ese momento. Ella entonces hizo también su adiestramiento como maestra de yoga.“En la iglesia, algunas personas sienten que adoran sólo con la cabeza. Esta es un modo de incluir el cuerpo en la adoración. Reconocemos totalmente la conexión de mente-cuerpo-espíritu. Están integrados. Esto es realmente un movimiento hacia la plenitud”.Muchos episcopales reconocen que los cristianos y otras personas que andan en busca de una experiencia espiritual con frecuencia necesitan un enfoque más holístico para practicar su fe, su fraternidad y su culto.La preparación física es una manera. Fe y preparación física van de la mano en muchos tipos de ejercicios, ya se trate de meditación mientras se corre, de tomar clases en un campo de entrenamiento o de practicar yoga.Su practica personal de yoga inspiró a Davies a crear en colaboración YogaMass [la misa yoga] que incorpora la eucaristía. Asociada con el Rdo. John K. Graham, presidente y Director Ejecutivo del Instituto para la Espiritualidad y la Salud en Centro Médico de Texas y sacerdote interino en la iglesia de La Gracia, ella recibió la aprobación del obispo Andy Doyle de Texas para crear una liturgia para la YogaMass y los oficios que incorporan los ejercicios de yoga comenzaron en enero de 2017.Davis dirige el fluyo yoga; ella y Graham se turnan el compartir el evangelio; ambos celebran la eucaristía y a veces cuentan con alguien más que dirige la parte de la meditación. Si bien el ritual y la práctica comenzaron en la iglesia de La Gracia, ya se han extendido a diferentes lugares a través de Houston, y tienen planes para sitios en California. Davis quiere compartir esta experiencia con tantas personas y en tantos lugares como sea posible.(De izquierda a derecha) Cyrus Wirls con un tambor yembé y Stuart Nelson con una sitar tocan música mientras el Rdo. John K. Graham y la Rda. Gena Davis dirigen la clase cerca del altar durante la YogaMass. Davies comenzó el programa en 2016, en la iglesia episcopal de La Gracia en Houston, Texas, y ahora lo ha extendido por el área, así como lo ha llevado a California, para propagar la conciencia de la fusión de antiguas prácticas yogas y principios cristianos. Davis y otros ofrecen clases que también funcionan como culto y servicio de meditación. Foto de Jonathan Dow/YogaMassElla escribió un libro, La misa yoga: encarnando la conciencia de Cristo [YogaMass: Embodying Christ Consciousness] que apareció con el sello editorial de Balboa Press en abril, y que detalla cómo los antiguos principios del yoga son complementarios de los valores cristianos. La primera frase del libro, “Este es mi cuerpo”, es lo que David dice cada vez que celebra la eucaristía.“Como episcopales, sabemos que esas son las palabras que Jesús dijo en su última noche. Esas son las palabras eucarísticas. Esos son nuestras palabras como fieles cristianos y llevarlas a casa y decirlas usted mismo, da lugar a toda clase de posibilidades para la exploración”, afirmó Davis. “Creo que es demasiado importante para desperdiciarlo. No podemos ignorar el cuerpo. Es nuestro modo de experimentar la vida”.Practicar yoga ha ampliado el cristianismo para Davis. Es una perspectiva que ha profundizado su fe. La práctica  yoga ha extendido las fronteras también. Personas que están en la veintena le han dicho que no se sienten cómodos en el ambiente tradicional de la iglesia, pero que aún quieren participar del culto.  YogaMass  ha sido una respuesta.“Hay un entusiasmo con la salud corporal. Veo a las personas en sus esterillas y que se sienten muy bien, pero lo que anhelan es esa conexión con las otras personas, y con lo Divino, y eso es Dios. A veces no pueden darle nombre”, explicó Davis.Preparación física como una forma de activismo comunitarioAtraer a personas de la comunidad que de otro modo no podrían ir a la iglesia es una gran motivación para que las iglesias auspicien clases de preparación física.“Las grandes iglesias en la generación nacida después de la segunda guerra mundial [baby boomers] vieron sus centros de gimnasia como una especie de YMCA  [sigla en inglés de la Asociación de Jóvenes Cristianos], de un tremendo compromiso comunitario”, dijo la Rda. Hillary Raining, que enseña yoga en la iglesia episcopal de San Cristóbal  [St. Christopher’s Episcopal Church] en Gladwyne, Pensilvania. “Cuidar de tu cuerpo es un valor cristiano. Pablo nos dice que nuestro cuerpo es el templo del Espíritu Santo, y no creo que uno descuidaría su propio templo”.Personas que andan en busca de artes marciales podrían sentirse a gusto en Santo Tomás  [St. Thomas] en New Windsor, Nueva York. La iglesia del valle del Hudson tiene en sus clases de preparación física una fusión de tai-chi-wushu kung fu los sábados hasta mediados de diciembre.La iglesia episcopal de San Juan [Saint John’s] en Memphis, Tennessee, tiene un Centro de la Vida Parroquial abierto para los feligreses y la comunidad. El centro ofrece deportes, clases de ejercicios en grupos, entrenamiento personal, carrera bajo techo, cancha de baloncesto, máquinas de pesas, grupos de recuperación, reuniones de grupos pequeños, asambleas vecinales y comidas. Las clases de salud física de hoy incluyen tai chi, yoga, pilates, clases para después del embarazo, preparación para el uso de cochecitos de bebés y una clase aptitud diversa orientada hacia la aventura.Es básicamente un gimnasio gratuito situado detrás de la iglesia y conectado con esta por un sendero para autos bajo techo, que funciona con valores cristianos a la disposición de cualquiera, siempre que siga las reglas de conducta, dijo Marietta Haaga, directora de recreación. Por supuesto, se aceptan donativos.Los feligreses recaudaron dinero para construir el centro en 1999, como un ministerio comunitario de recreación. Algunos instructores comienzan sus clases con una oración. “Mantener a las personas bien orientadas, física, mental y espiritualmente, es de lo que se trata”, dijo Haaga, que también es entrenadora personal. “En realidad, nuestra filosofía y nuestro ministerio consisten en hacer que la gente se mantenga sana de mente, alma y cuerpo”.Proporcionar un lugar para que las personas se ejerciten en un ambiente bueno, limpio, seguro y cristiano cumple ese objetivo. A veces algunos le dicen a Haaga que asistieron a un oficio en la iglesia porque oyeron hablar de él en el Centro de la Vida Parroquial. El centro también ofrece, charlas, ferias de salud y campañas de donación de sangre.Preparación física como cultoUno no tiene que explicarle a Paige Lollis que la fe y la preparación física pueden entrelazarse. Ella fue la catalizadora de esa combinación en su iglesia, San Felipe [St. Philips Episcopal Church] en Frisco, Texas. Todo empezó cuando Lollis tomo un curso de pilates con Christi Price, una instructora profesional y hermana en la fe. Ellas transformaron su sesión privada de pilates en un taller de adoración, al incorporar música religiosa y Biblia.El ministerio de Fe y Preparación Física en la iglesia episcopal de San Felipe en Frisco, Texas, ofrece clases de pilates y Santo Yoga, un programa que comenzó Paige Lollis, una miembro de la iglesia. Foto de Christi PriceA Lollis le gustó mucho, habló con Kelley Prahl, que entonces era la directora de discipulado adulto de la iglesia. Comenzaron por ofrecer sesiones de seis clases de yoga en cada estación. En cada clase se leen versículos bíblicos y se toca música cristiana. Esta última estación, añadieron Santo Yoga que la imparte Maureen Beville, instructora graduada de yoga centrado en el evangelio con su propia certificación de entrenamiento.“Cuando uno viene a una iglesia, uno se encuentra con Dios en el banco, mientras con esto uno se encuentra con Dios en su esterilla”, dijo Lollis. “En lugar de que el instructor le diga que levante las manos al techo, se trata de levantar las manos al Señor. Es algo muy consciente. Queremos centrar nuestras mentes en la Palabra de Dios e integrarla en nuestra memoria muscular”.La tarifa de clases oscila entre los $10 y los $15, y una porción de los ingresos se destina a una organización benéfica, siendo la más reciente el ministerio de Mujeres Redimidas .A Stevi McCoy, directora de vida comunitaria de la iglesia, le encanta tomar las clases de pilates. “Esta es otra manera de adorar; estamos tratando de ofrecer la mayor selección de medios para adorar y fraternizar y crecer como discípulos”, dijo McCoy.“Percibo que cualquier otro tipo de ejercicio se centra en uno; en estas clases uno se centra en Dios. Esa es la gran diferencia. Uno hace acción de gracias por su vida”.Preparación física como meditaciónEn Gladwyne, Raining enseña en su iglesia de Pensilvania un antiguo tipo de yoga llamada ashtanga. Las clases gratis son dos veces por semana y están a disposición de todos los miembros de la comunidad. Ella comienza la clase con una meditación que combina principios cristianos y yogas, da un minisermón, instruye a los estudiantes en sus posiciones yogas y concluye con una meditación.Amy Dolan, instructora de yoga y líder espiritual y la Rda. Hillary Raining, que enseña yoga en la iglesia episcopal de San Cristóbal, en Gladwyne, Pensilvania, son coautoras de un libro Faith with a Twist: A 30 Day Yoga Journey. Foto de“Lo que encuentro en el yoga es una hermosa mezcla de cambio interior que tiene un catalizador externo”, explicó Raining.Otra clase de ejercicios también pueden ser meditativos. A la sacerdote le gusta correr y hacer senderismo. Ella suele oír música, pero puede decidir dedicarle 10 minutos de ese tiempo a una meditación programando himnos en su lista discográfica. Como disciplina de Cuaresma, una vez se privó de escuchar música mientras corría y optó por el silencio.“El Yoga tiene una ventaja porque se crea dentro del aura de la práctica. Pero cualquier práctica de preparación física hecha con intención puede acercarte a Dios”, dijo Raining.Con Amy Dolan, compañera instructora de yoga y líder espiritual, Raining también está escribiendo un libro, Faith with a Twist: A 30 Day Yoga Journey [La fe con un giro: un viaje de 30 días con el yoga], que espera presentar en la 79ª. Convención General en julio [del próximo año] en Austin, Texas. Ella está también en el proceso de diseñar un sitio web para el bienestar físico y espiritual de la mujer a la que ha llamado La Colmena [The Hive].No tienes que preocuparte de estar siguiendo budismo o hinduismo cuando practicas yoga, dicen estas maestras de yoga cristiano. Los paralelos son una unión lógica. Por ejemplo, la técnica drishti del yoga utiliza una dirección específica de la mirada para controlar la atención, según el Yoga Journal.Es un término sánscrito para que uno enfoque el punto de mira, lo cual ayuda a concentrarte, te mantiene en equilibrio y profundiza en la posición.“Si tienes los ojos fijos en algo que se mueve, te caerás”, dijo Raining. “Creo que también es un pensamiento cristiano:  que en lo que fijes tu mirada sea verdadero y santo, no en las tentaciones y distracciones, cuando tu mirada está centrada en Cristo, eso es lo que te guía. Yo puedo practicarlo en mi esterilla, y puedo practicarlo en mi vida”.— Amy Sowder es corresponsal especial de Episcopal News Service y escritora y redactora independiente radicada en Brooklyn.

3 ways the US should prepare for the next flu pandemic

first_img UF/IFAS in Apopka will temporarily house District staff; saves almost $400,000 Gov. DeSantis says new moment-of-silence law in public schools protects religious freedom The VOICE of HealthBy Lance Gable, Associate Professor of Law, Wayne State UniversityEditor’s Note: This article was first published in theconversation.comThe flu is wreaking havoc globally this year. Influenza infections are on the rise, with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention predicting that this year’s strain will cause the highest rate of hospitalizations and deaths in a decade.This year also marks the 100th anniversary of the 1918 influenza pandemic. This pandemic was the worst flu outbreak in history, killing tens of millions of people around the world.As an expert in public health law, I can state two things with confidence. First, the U.S. has made enormous strides in preparing for and treating the flu. And second, we still are not nearly as prepared as we need to be for the next pandemic.A global scourgeThe 1918 influenza strain was unusually deadly because humans had not been exposed widely to the H1N1 strain of the virus. It overwhelmed our naive immune systems. What’s more, influenza vaccines and other modern medical treatments had not yet been developed and infection control strategies were poorly understood. The spread of the disease was also fueled by troop movements connected with World War I.Since 1918, flu outbreaks have fluctuated in size, but overall become less severe. Scientific advances have made influenza more preventable and treatable. Public health officials now know better how to contain influenza outbreaks and minimize their harm.Nevertheless, the flu remains a persistent global scourge. Each year, the disease kills an estimated 12,000 to 56,000 people in the U.S. and 291,000 to 646,000 people worldwide. The influenza virus mutates rapidly and infects other animals in addition to humans, which allows new viral combinations to emerge and challenge our immune systems.If the world were to face a new strain of flu similar in novelty and virulence to the 1918 virus, our capacity to prevent a pandemic would still fall short because we have not made sufficient progress in science, infrastructure or implementation of preparedness plans.1. Develop stronger vaccinesSo how can the U.S. improve its ability to stop a new flu pandemic, as well as to reduce the annual impact of influenza infections?First, researchers need to improve the flu vaccine. Most flu vaccine production currently relies on antiquated technology that requires experts to predict the most likely strains early each flu season. Manufacturers must grow the vaccine in chicken eggs, a process that takes weeks and limits the ability to make adjustments to the vaccine during the flu season.Efforts are underway to develop new technologies, including a universal flu vaccine that could protect against multiple strains of influenza A, including novel strains, and last for several years.But the federal government has only allocated US$75 million this year toward flu vaccine research. This is not nearly enough. Ideally, there would be four or five times more federal money available for this research.A box of masks at an emergency room in Escondido, California. Mike Blake/Reuters2. Spot outbreaks earlySecond, to prevent flu pandemics, public health officials need more and better information about influenza outbreaks.Right now, the World Health Organization collects data on flu outbreaks from multiple sources in 114 countries. But much of the data – and the funding – for global surveillance comes from the U.S. and other wealthy countries.This is not sufficient to detect a pandemic strain quickly enough. New strains are most likely to emerge in developing countries with dense populations and more frequent human-animal contact. In an increasingly interconnected world, emerging infections can spread rapidly through travel and trade, as with the 2009 swine flu outbreak.Developing countries have the least resources for surveillance and treatment. They also face disproportionately high rates of flu deaths and infections. People in these countries will likely bear the brunt of a pandemic, which will be able to spread quickly in crowded megacities with inadequate public health services and limited capacity to track infections.If the surveillance system were expanded to include more humans and animals in less wealthy countries, it would allow officials to detect outbreaks earlier and better track an infection as it spreads.The CDC has led efforts to coordinate global surveillance. But the Trump administration hopes to slash funding for the CDC, as well as global health programs. If cuts are enacted, it would imperil these efforts.3. Make sure everyone is preparedFinally, government officials and other members of the health community need to pay more attention to plans for public health emergency preparedness.On a federal and state level, many officials have prepared for a sudden upsurge in flu-related illness by conducting training exercises for healthcare workers and stockpiling resources, such as Tamiflu and IV bags.But these efforts vary wildly across the country. Laws in some states have streamlined the process to expand the healthcare workforce, implement measures to keep people apart during outbreaks or enact other strategies that may help reduce the spread of influenza and lessen the impact of a severe outbreak.However, many plans remain incomplete. Funding tends to go up after notable disasters and then dissipate when these events recede from memory. Plus, many of the resources available for public health emergencies depend on the discretion of executive officials. The recently reported difficulties of securing federal recovery resources for Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria demonstrate that this is a real concern.Despite progress over the past century, the world remains unprepared for an influenza pandemic. But, with a higher level of commitment and attention, we can greatly improve our pandemic response systems and save lives.

The project sets within a mission of movement and punctuation. With this framework, a typological approach seeks to combine the urban scale of the street with its surrounding area. The project maintains the necessary “boundaries” between the building and the street while taking into account the area’s density. The result produces an intimate residential atmosphere while maintaining the autonomy of the individual units, which break away from the standard “concrete block” and its the negative stereotyping. Save this picture!© Nicolás BorelRecommended ProductsPorcelain StonewareApavisaSlabs – ConcreteWoodAccoyaAccoya® CanalsPanels / Prefabricated AssembliesULMA Architectural SolutionsFretwork Facade PanelThus the project is organized into a gathering of buildings sectioned in rhythm with the urban design : – A well-handled gap separates the structures so that their individuality is maintained, yet they all have corresponding foundations so that a single and continuous reading of the urban landscape is achieved.- Transparencies and visual escapes produced by the gap between structures finds focus in the patios distributed among the large street-facing apartments. These patios initiate a smooth transition between public and private areas.- In slight contrast to the regular rhythm of the buildings, a dynamic ensemble of rooftops tipped with slightly asymmetrical angles house attics for the apartments. Save this picture!© Philippe CaumesThe project flirts with false symmetry and vibrations established by slight variations of a serial logic.Moreover, the urban dimension earns its place amongst the strong goals of the urban project in Angers:Save this picture!© Willy Berr- A united front is presented from the ground (e.g., from Banchais street). One section settles there, bordering Marguerite Legros street, which in turn crosses the existing block (image 1). Where the street makes two building façades face each other between two breaks, perspectival depth is created along with a connection forged between the two sides of Le Gouz street.- From Deux Croix boulevard, an initial plot (image 2) creates a rhythm along to which the first section of the building responds visually. The sequence ends roughly a dozen meters behind this section, Le Gouz 2. Distant dialog pulls the project towards the town so that the two feel more united. Save this picture!© Philippe Caumes- In Banchais street, the question here is of the same scale as the neighbouring buildings, as the street is mainly made of pavilions.

Given its prominent positioning above a relatively developed neighborhood, the motivation behind the design of the home was to create a residence that could meld into its surroundings while maximizing views. The three-story structure, which takes on the shape of a three-winged propeller, is wrapped in glass that mirrors its sweeping views of the Los Angeles Basin, which are unobstructed from the Getty Center to Long Beach, Century City, and Downtown.Save this picture!© Matthew Momberger“The client wanted a luxurious house where she could throw large events and host her extended family, but she also wanted it to feel welcoming,” says SPF:a Founder and Design Principal, Zoltan E. Pali, FAIA. “To make this work, we needed the home’s spaces flow into one another with ease. Our answer was distribute the program across three ‘blades’ that radiate from a central node.”Save this picture!© Matthew MombergerThe outcome of the confluence—a dynamic glass and steel staircase stretching through the core of the structure—was in fact twofold: practically, it provided a very straightforward answer to the vast home’s circulation; visually, it joined what would otherwise be disparate areas in one’s line of sight. “In spite of the scale, I feel we were able to achieve a home that is both warm and functional,” says Pali.Save this picture!© Matthew MombergerSave this picture!Ground floor planSave this picture!© Matthew MombergerAs a whole, Orum rises two stories above ground with its third floor burrowed into the hill. Programmatically, the residence has been split into three levels each consisting of three wings. The ground floor provides the entry and communal spaces for gathering, while the top floor is dedicated to the home’s private spaces. The upper southwest and southeast wings of the home hold the master and mini-master suites, both of which are afforded 270-degree views of the city and ocean, thanks to their slim profiles. In contrast, the two smaller bedrooms contained within the northern wing and embraced by the site’s adjacent hillside and rear garden, giving them an intimate feel akin to a tree house.Save this picture!© Matthew Momberger”The light in Los Angeles is very dynamic and can be both calming and energizing,” says SPF:a Founder and Creative Director, Judit M. Fekete, “As the site is positioned quite high above the city with almost no impediments, we wanted the house to capture the spirit of these dualities. The huge panels of glass provide the home’s inhabitants with a strong connection to nature and the daily and seasonal arcs of light..”Save this picture!© Matthew MombergerThe glass curtain wall wrapping the third floor home is a highly sophisticated system custom developed in part with Schuco/Glasbox, a leading fenestration company based in Germany. The structure utilizes five different widths of four different opacities—reflective, opaque, translucent, and clear—that as an ensemble give the structure an infinite, visually shifting, shimmering façade.Save this picture!© Matthew MombergerThe outdoor area includes a kitchen, two fire pits, and an LED-lit pool. All roof, balcony, and hardscape water is directed to a 7,000-gallon underground tank for landscape irrigation. The main garage also serves as an event space and can be completely opened on two sides for through views.Save this picture!© Matthew MombergerThe basement level has been outfitted with a home theater, gym, spa, cedar sauna, service kitchen, and a wine room big enough to hold a thousand bottles. Also accessible from this floor is the Cube, an attached guesthouse designed for family and staff. The Cube is outfitted with four bedrooms, four baths, a kitchenette, and dedicated access and garage.A highly custom residence steeped with intricacies, Orum took four years to construct.Save this picture!© Matthew MombergerProject gallerySee allShow lessSierra / BOSS.architectureSelected ProjectsCandy Loft / StudioACSelected Projects Share Products translation missing: Area:  18800 ft² Year Completion year of this architecture project Orum Residence / SPF: architects Photographs:  Matthew Momberger Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Manufacturers: Lutron, Sky-Frame, Blum, Glasbox, Lochinvar, Miele, Subzero/Wolf, U-line, Creston Home Automators System, Holovision, Samfil PVC, Speed Queen, VALVO ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Year:  United States Houses “COPY” Architects: SPF: architects Area Area of this architecture project CopyAbout this officeSPF: architectsOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesLos AngelesLos ÁngelesUnited StatesPublished on February 07, 2019Cite: “Orum Residence / SPF: architects” 07 Feb 2019.

Massive turnout honors life and legacy of Chuck Turner

first_imgWW photo: Stevan KirschbaumBoston, USAA capacity crowd of 600-plus people – plus an additional 250 overflow – packed Roxbury Community College Jan. 9 to celebrate the life of Charles Henry “Chuck” Turner II.  The “People’s City Councilor” passed away Dec. 25 following a long battle with cancer. He was 79. As a freedom fighter, organizer, strategist and internationalist, he struggled for justice for over 53 years.  The crowd represented the many struggles to which Chuck dedicated his life. Leaders from the Black and Brown communities, from the fight for jobs, housing, education, prison rights, equality, women’s and LGBTQ2+ rights – against racism, poverty and war – joined his spouse Terri Turner and family in a moving tribute. Team Solidarity of the United Steelworkers Local 8751, Boston School Bus Union, organized buses that brought over 60 rank-and-file members from the bus yards. The three-and-a-half-hour program was led by Darrin Howell, family spokesperson and former District 7 Constituent Service Director who, like many in attendance, had been mentored by Chuck. It was emceed by Calvin Feliciano and Angela Yarde of Chuck’s council staff. A rainbow of movement leaders bore witness to his life’s work. New generations of community leaders whom Chuck had mentored joined longtime veterans. Paige Academy Drummers opened the program, which also included song, poetry and an electrifying musical performance by Foundation Movement, Boston’s premier hip-hop band and Chuck’s beloved loyal comrades.Mel King, 91 years old, set the tone for the day, reciting a poem he had composed entitled the “Power of Love.” King had worked with Chuck on countless campaigns, including the historic I-95 Federal Highway struggle of 1969. This project threatened to decimate Boston’s Black and Brown communities. Their coalition, called Operation Stop, took on the federal government and won, providing invaluable lessons for struggles ahead to protect the integrity of the community. Charles Yancey met Chuck as a teenage college activist. He bears the honorable distinction of being the sole City Councilor to “Stand with Chuck,” when the Council took an illegal, racist vote to remove Chuck after his 2008 federal frameup. Yancey stated, “We are Chuck Turner.” Speakers tell of his early strugglesAlso on the program was Bill Strickland, Chuck’s Harvard classmate, who after meeting him at a Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee convention in 1963, joined him in New York City as editor of the Northern Student Movement newspaper. The NSM was begun by Northern students providing support for the movement in the South. It later shifted to Black community organizing in New York, Hartford and Boston, a trajectory that led Chuck back to Boston in 1966.  In those three years, he joined a rent strike in Harlem and then became NSM director in Hartford, where he organized a campaign to confront police brutality. This led to confrontations between the police and the community, resulting in Chuck’s arrest and charges of sedition — charges that had not been used since the days of Sacco and Vanzetti. After Chuck was given probation, he moved to Roxbury, Mass.Other program speakers included Kazi Toure of the Jericho Movement and Suzanne Lee, a longtime Chinatown activist. President Andre François of the Boston School Bus Union, brought the crowd to its feet with a proposal that the mayor – who was in the audience – name a street in honor of Chuck. He was the strongest supporter, ally and advisor to Local 8751 since its founding in the 1970s.Chuck was born in Cincinnati in 1940. He said he was “blessed to have been born into a family that had two predominant passions – a thirst for knowledge and a desire to serve.” His mother was a school teacher, while his father later ran one of the first Black-owned pharmacies in Chicago. His brother became a college professor and dean, while his grandfather, Charles Henry Turner, for whom Chuck was named, was a renowned zoologist and entomologist. Fighting racism, poverty and warIn 1958, Chuck attended Harvard University on a full scholarship. After college, he headed for Washington, D.C. He later recalled “ironically arriving on August 23, 1963. Thus, I had the opportunity to stand with hundreds of thousands and hear Dr. King and others give the call to action.” Chuck spent the rest of his life answering the call to fight the “triple evils” of racism, poverty and war. In 1999, Chuck ran for and won a Boston City Council seat, in an “attempt to use elective office as an organizing tool.” For a decade, he did just that. He and his spouse paid for a “serve the people” organizing hub district office in Dudley (now Nubian Square), serving his constituents and anyone who walked through the door seeking help. The People’s City Councilor was loved by the people but hated by the forces of oppression and injustice. In 2008, Chuck was the victim of a federally coordinated, politically motivated, racist frameup.  At the time, former U.S. Attorney General Ramsey Clark, who traveled to Boston to support Chuck, wrote: “Chuck has been in the forefront of every battle for social justice, in Massachusetts and around the globe. Turner’s prosecution in 2008 was part of a politically motivated pattern of prosecutions of elected officials of color by Bush administration U.S. Attorneys. It is a political frame-up. The voters of his district showed their view of it in the 2009 election by returning him to office.” Chuck was innocent! Yet he served 2 ½ years in federal prison in West Virginia.  He handled this fight with the same principles, dignity and grace that characterized his life’s struggles. He organized within the walls and returned to Boston stronger than ever. For jobs and international solidarityChuck’s decades of effective, impassioned organizing in the struggle for jobs – from the Third World Jobs Clearing House to the Boston Jobs Coalition, against racism and discrimination in hiring in the building trades based on criminal records and against police brutality – provide a road map for future organizing.  An internationalist to the core, Chuck fought for workers and the oppressed worldwide: from Palestine to Puerto Rico, Haiti to India, Iraq to Afghanistan. He consistently supported Mumia Abu-Jamal, Leonard Peltier and all political prisoners.  Chuck’s May Day 2011 message from behind the walls said it all: “While the clouds of darkness are thickening over this country, we must remember that the sun never stops shining, no matter how dark it appears. We also must remember that it is the workers of the world who are the yeast in the bread of the planet. We can see the system of exploitation crumbling of the weight of its own evil. Let us prepare ourselves to remake the world in the image of Brotherly and Sisterly Love.”Chuck Turner, ¡presente!The rank-and-file activist union of the Boston school bus drivers, USW 8751, mourned the loss of Chuck Turner, described on its Team Solidarity Facebook page as “the strongest ally, support and advisor” to the union since its founding in the 1970s, who was “solidarity in action, at rallies, demonstrations, marches, hearings, direct actions and round-the-clock negotiations.”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more
