Saving Lives and Bringing Sustainable Programs to the Haitian People Quickly and Effectively

   Elton John AIDS Foundation's (EJAF)

August 2009 newsletter announced that, after years of advocacy and litigation by the ACLU and other HIV advocates, the Alabama Department of Corrections has officially released new guidelines ending a decades-old policy banning prisoners with HIV from entering the state's work-release program. Work-release programs play an extremely important role in prisoner rehabilitation and preparation for successful reintegration into civil society by enabling inmates to gain job skills and experience, build savings, provide child support, and begin paying off court fees before they are released. South Carolina is now the only state that continues to deny HIV-infected prisoners access to work-release programs.

   Health Care - Universal Care for All
Health Care Sign Up
Senator Edward M. Kennedy R.I.P.

Life is too short. Can we, just once, work together and bring Senator Kennedy's dream into focus this year and pass Health Care, for him and all those who counted on him to get this work done?
Eunice Kennedy Shriver
Eunice Kennedy Shriver, his sister, followed her dream and managed to move mountains without help from Congress and government machinery. She was able to bring The Special Olympics to our global village. We see what a woman working alone can do and feel compelled to wonder why so many well educated, well connected, and well placed people in Washington cannot get health care to the people in America.


California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger issued the following statement:
"Maria and I are immensely saddened by the passing of Uncle Teddy. He was known to the world as the Lion of the Senate, a champion of social justice, and a political icon...
Teddy inspired our country through his dedication to health care reform, his commitment to social justice, and his devotion to a life of public service..."

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid issued the following statement on Wednesday:
"The Kennedy family and the Senate family have together lost our patriarch. My thoughts, and those of the entire United States Senate, are with Vicki, Senator Kennedy's children, his many nieces and nephews, and his entire family.
It was the thrill of my lifetime to work with Ted Kennedy. He was a friend, the model of public service and an American icon.
As we mourn his loss, we rededicate ourselves to the causes for which he so dutifully dedicated his life. Senator Kennedy's legacy stands with the greatest, the most devoted, the most patriotic men and women to ever serve in these halls..."

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi issued the following statement:
"Today, with the passing of Senator Edward M. Kennedy, the American people have lost a great patriot, and the Kennedy family has lost a beloved patriarch. Over a lifetime of leadership, Senator Kennedy’s statesmanship and political prowess produced a wealth of accomplishment that has improved opportunity for every American...
Ted Kennedy’s dream of quality health care for all Americans will be made real this year because of his leadership and his inspiration.
Sadly, Senator Kennedy left us exactly one year after he inspired the nation with his speech of optimism, vitality, and courage at the Convention in Denver..."

Rep. Jackie Speier, D-Hillsborough, introduced a $1 billion federal bill this week that would fund the restoration of thousands of acres of San Francisco Bay wetlands. The San Francisco Bay Improvement Act of 2010 would fiscally support the cleanup of mercury and PCBs--and provide storm-water filters to deter toxic substances--in bay waters, as well as fund the removal of nonnative plants and animals. To date there has been unanimous support for the legislation.

   The Nicholas Roerich Museum

The Peace Pact
Pact and Banner Of Peace Through Culture
Nicholas Roerich "came to realize that the cultural heritage of each nation is in essence a world treasure. And his idea of cultural heritage broadened to include more than just the physical remains of earlier cultures—the buildings and art, for example—but also the creative activities, the universities, the libraries, the hospitals, the concert halls and theaters. All must be protected from the ravages of war and neglect, for without them life would be nothing but a rude and ignorant time on earth. It became clear to Roerich that an international effort was required. During the nineteen-twenties, he composed a treaty with the assistance of international legal experts. This treaty came to be known as The Roerich Pact."

   William Shatner's Hollywood Charity Horse Show.
catch up at Twitter
- March of 1990 began the annual Hollywood Charity Horse Show. In the spirit of bi-coastal programs such as Ahead With Horses, National Center for Therapeutic Riding [East Coast - support from Reagan-Brady], Pegasus Riding Academy, and Angels on a Leash, therapists have maximized the powerful relationship between handicapped children and professionally trained animals, steering them to a fine art form.

The success of the theory has expanded over time. Children, shut-ins, and the hospitalized enjoy the special bond portrayed in The Horse Whisperer [Robert Redford] after the tragic accident experienced by a treasured horse, Pilgrim, and his young owner.

Today, the Hollywood Charity Horse Show is an ongoing event that garners national press coverage. Each year, "HCHS brings together world-class reining horses and riders in breathtaking slides and spins as they compete for top honors in their respective classes."

With the lyrics "Now I'm asking all of you, help us save some lives," George Harrison turned music into a political and social force. August 1, 2009 marked the 38th anniversary of George Harrison's historic Concert for Bangladesh.

In 1971, Harrison staged two concerts at New York's Madison Square Garden that brought together a star-studded cast of musicians—including Ravi Shankar, Bob Dylan, Eric Clapton, Ringo Starr, Leon Russell and Billy Preston—to alert the world to the plight of the Bangladeshi people. At the time, the country was ravaged by floods, famine and civil war, which forced 10 million people—mostly women and children—to flee their homes.

(CBS) Michael Jackson wrote the song "Gone Too Soon" in Ryan White's honor.
In 1984, White was diagnosed with AIDS at the age of 13 after he received a tainted blood treatment for hemophilia. Ryan became the face for the disease early on in the AIDS crisis, meeting many celebrities, including the King of Pop.
Befriended by Jackson, Ryan and his mother Jeanne White-Ginder both stayed at Jackson's Neverland Ranch in its heyday, and Jeanne, who appeared on "The Early Show" Friday told CBS News the home was "a place between heaven and Earth."

Bread & Roses Performer Guidelines

In taking entertainment to institutions, Bread & Roses is primarily concerned with creating a relaxed and rewarding experience for both the performer and the inmates or patients of any institution.

1. Promptness is very important for people confined in institutions. They are on regular schedules. In most circumstances, the patients or inmates become anxious and unhappy if the expected and anticipated entertainment is late.

2. Communicating with the audience is as important as entertaining them. We encourage you to visit with the residents before or after a performance. However, please be aware that expressing personal beliefs and philosophies (religious, social, political, etc.) is inappropriate and perhaps alienating. The quality of your performance itself will express inherent beliefs and messages.

3. Please don’t make promises or commitments to the inmates or patients that you don’t intend to keep; i.e., future visits or continued correspondence.

4. Cleanliness and good health are most important, particularly when you are visiting a health care facility. Many residents have a very low resistance to disease. If you are not feeling well the day before a scheduled performance, call the office to rearrange your visit.

5. Neatness in appearance is pleasing to the eye, and any special costume is particularly well received as it makes the audience feel that you have made a special effort for them.

6. Children generally are not allowed in institutions. However, if and when they are, they may enhance a performance. Pets are not allowed, so please don’t bring them along.

7. Bringing extra people along to a show adds a level of confusion. The only way that they should attend is with the assignment of a specific job that has been cleared with the Bread & Roses office in advance. For instance, they could be assigned to carry equipment, to greet the audience or to help the patients, etc.

8. If, at your convenience, you decide t meet us at the institution before a performance rather than at the office, please make sure that you make contact with a Bread & Roses person before the performance commences. (A Bread & Roses staff member will attend each performance.)

9. Bred & Roses has been established as a liaison with the institutions. If you have any questions or problems – please call our office rather than the institution and we will be happy to help work them out.

10. If for any reason you have to cancel a performance, please notify the Bread & Roses office as soon as possible, as the date will have been counted on by the institution and the office will have to get a replacement.

11. Always remember that, as a performer going to an institution, you are entering someone’s home and act accordingly.

12. You have been chosen to be a Bread & Roses performer because of your unique talent. The above suggestions may not pertain to you, but we feel that they are worth remembering.
