Mapping Migration is a revised and updated edition of three bodies’ previous joint study and explores challenges and changes in the European church landscape in light of international migration.“This updated study contributes to a better understanding of migration and diversity in European societies and churches,” said CCME general secretary Doris Peschke. “We hope this work will cultivate more adequate responses to migration.”The study has been prepared by missiologist the Rev. .Darrell Jackson and sociologist .Alessia Passarelli. Mapping Migration combines theological interpretation, sociological accounts, and the voices of migrants themselves. It it articulates both the experiences of migrants and how they shape and build church communities in Europe.Father Heikki Huttunen, the CEC general secretary, said that “Migration provides opportunity to welcome the stranger and uphold the dignity of every human being.”The study has been released to coincide with the WCC/UN high level conference on the refugee crisis in Europe which is currently being held in Geneva, Switzerland. “With accessible theological reflection, user-friendly infographics, and compelling first-hand accounts, Mapping Migration is essential reading for anyone interested in the intersection of the life of the churches with trends in migration,” the CEC said in a statement.The general secretary of the WCC, the Rev. Olav Fykse Tveit welcomed the study, saying: “The timely new edition of Mapping Migration will support the vital work of European churches in the present crisis.The Mapping Migration report can be downloaded here (pdf).

Think Global also said that it had known for more than 18 months that it was facing financial challenges and had tried to secure an alternative future, including exploring a potential merger, but had been unable to replace the large reduction in income.It is now in the process of handing over potential programmes or remaining activities to partners in the global learning network, and closing programmes.Over the last 35 years, Think Global has co-ordinated and supported a diverse network of individuals and organisations working to promote global learning in England. The mission of the charity was to promote global learning to assist, encourage and inspire people to think critically about global issues and act for a more just and sustainable world.James Luger, Chair of Think Global, said:“We are acutely aware that at the very moment we close our doors, the need for global learning has never been greater. The challenges of the 21st Century – be they technological, political, economic or environmental – will all require more, not less, of the key tenets of global learning: Viewing learning as a process; critical-analytical thinking; openness to others’ perspectives and a deep understanding of the interdependence of society. “However, Think Global didn’t act alone – we were an effective force for global learning because our members, networks, friends and supporters amplified our message, and this community will continue to promote the vital importance of helping people understand and act on global issues, and help create a world that is just and sustainable for all.” About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.

The case of Cyntoia Brown, the now 30-year-old African-American woman who spent almost 15 years in a Tennessee prison, has garnered worldwide attention especially through social media. Brown was sentenced for killing a white male sexual predator who solicited her for sex when she was just 16 years old. As a child, Brown suffered from fetal alcohol syndrome and homelessness, and as a juvenile, she was a victim of multiple rapes.Her case has helped shine a bright spotlight on global sex trafficking, especially that targeting young people of color regardless of gender, gender expression or national borders. A mass campaign of petitions and other forms of support forced Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam to grant Brown clemency on Jan. 7. Haslam is the same right-wing Republican governor whose administration in 2014 was exposed as undermining unionization of a Volkswagen plant in Chattanooga by providing lucrative financial incentives to the anti-labor auto conglomerate. That’s proof enough that Haslam did not grant clemency to this young African-American survivor out of the goodness of his heart. She is being freed through mass pressure from below, along with support from prominent figures like singer Rihanna, actors Ashley Judd and Amy Schumer, and other high-profile people. Harsh conditions based in racism and sexismDespite this victory for Cyntoia Brown and the movement that supported her, the governor’s clemency does not come without infuriating conditions based in racism and sexism. The most blatant condition is that Brown will not be released until Aug. 7, seven months from now. Not only should she not have been convicted of murder in 2004 as a juvenile, she should not have to spend one more day in prison, which must be agonizing for her. Anything could happen to her between now and her release date, given that prison is a dangerous place for any prisoner.Just think back to what happened to Sandra Bland, the 28-year-old African-American woman from Chicago, falsely arrested in July 2015 by an arrogant, racist police officer for “failing to use a turn signal.” Three days later, she was found hanging in the Waller County, Texas, jail cell — a highly suspicious death that was ruled a “suicide.” Her tragic death triggered the #SayHerName campaign led by the Black Lives Matter movement to remind everyone that Black and other women of color are brutalized by the repressive state apparatus. The second punishing condition linked to the governor’s clemency is that reportedly Brown will still be on parole for the next 10 years after she is finally released. To be “on parole” means being trapped within the criminal justice system, whether behind prison walls or not, like millions of faceless others. If there is any perceived violation of her parole — and racism and sexism can easily create a “violation” — Cyntoia Brown could end up back in prison. The movement should continue to pressure the governor to release Cyntoia Brown immediately, with no conditions.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this

The top priority for Indiana agriculture this session was funding for repair and maintenance of local roads and bridges. The House and Senate passed different versions of a funding package and a conference committee has been trying to reconcile the two bills for the past two weeks. Justin Schneider, with Indiana Farm Bureau, says Farm Bureau supports the House version, “The House version had $215 million more new money going to local governments for road and bridge repair. In our mind, given all the need, we have more money directed to local governments.”Both bills contain a hike in the gas tax, something Farm Bureau supported, and Schneider says it is needed, “The reality is that, given the amount of money that is needed just to get us as a state back to where we need to be, the tax increase is necessary.” He added that most people understand this even though they are not happy about having to pay more at the pump.IFB is urging its members to voice support for the House version of the road funding plan, “INFB members must take action to restore sufficient funding for rural roads and bridges in HB 1002. Otherwise, the increased fuel taxes and registration fees you pay will primarily go to maintaining state roads, not the roads where you work and live.”The new, 2-year, state budget will also be approved as the session ends. While negations will continue up to the last minute, Schneider is confident many of FB’s priorities, such as funding for the State Fair, the Indiana Grown program, Purdue, and the BOAH, will be included, “I feel confident there are going to be things being addressed that agriculture has supported.” He said there are more requests than funds to meet them,so there is a good chance that not everyone is going to get everything they asked for.Indiana Farm Bureau and Hoosier Ag Today will present a final review of legislative action next week.

Students work in partners to locate a site in the canyon and create an initial field study of the Eaton Canyon chaparral that is so common to the San Gabriel foothills.Students map a birds-eye view of their viewing site and create a one hour log of their observations during their visit.Â Working in team of two the students accumulate evidence through video and photos of their experience.Â During the month of November students will create an online blog to share their experience with their teachers and fellow students.This project allows students to interact with nature in a way that many of them no longer experience.Â Biology teachers take students on an opening hike to discuss dangers and safety in the canyon. The students then journey out in teams to locate their viewing site. Students learn to make record observations and data, identify and classify plants and animals within the region.Â This is an introductory experience that will be expanded to a student choice Biome Blog project that will be completed in the second semester.In the past we were surprised at how many of our students do not experience the outdoors beyond their own backyards or school yard.Â This project provides for opportunities for our students to get out and experience the amazing natural resources we have right here in the San Gabriel Valley. By introducing the experience of nature in a controlled environment and then allowing students to go out and choose regions in the Southern California area for them to continue that interaction in the spring, it is our hope that our students gain an increased appreciation for this world that we share.For more information, visitÂ www.lasallehs.org.
