August 14th 2022 Holocaust Event Handout Full Front And Back

The Memnosyne Institute is proud to have Yolonda BlueHorse representing our organizations contribution to the Dallas Holocaust and Human Rights Museum's event tomorrow focused on s*x trafficking - both the history through the ages and where it is still tragically happening today. Yolonda will be making a presentation on the Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women here in the United States. Please read the back of this handout to learn more about why this situation is such a challenge for the USA to tackle.

Pease also note that The Memnosyne Institute is following up on Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf's wonderful presentation in our "Library Salon Series" with the equally charismatic and insightful Rabbi Joshua Stanton this coming September 1st! It will be limited seating a free kosher gourmet food created by chef Avner Samuel!

It is with extreme sadness that everyone at The Memnosyne Institute mourns the loss of Dr. Don Edward Beck, one of our Advisory Board members and without whom two of our organization's most potentially prolific and life-changing initiatives, The Vital Signs Monitor led by Thomas Q Johns and the curricula offered in The school Out of A Box program, would not be nearly as effective in terms of their positive impact on the world. Don E. Beck was a pioneer whose work advised F.W. de Klerk and Nelson Mandela in their quest to overthrow apartheid, but he didn't stop there. He continued taking Spiral Dynamics - while always crediting his own mentor, Dr. Clare W. Graves, for discovering it - and helping people around the globe from predicting the shooting in Norway after the Nobel Prize committee requested he demonstrate its application to seeing the forerunner of his Vital Signs Monitor (using AI to measure streaming data) form the basis of countries like Singapore, to predict terrorism and bioterrorism.....but Don always believed humanity was "much more than its worst parts" and dreamed of the day his work could be "computerized in full". It's heartbeaking to everyone at The Memnosyne Institute to have not had the chance to let Don know what has transpired over the last few weeks leading to being able to come significantly closer to transforming Don's visions for helping humanity evolve into a closer reality. But we will continue to be 100% dedicated to continuing to see his visions through and will always be deeply grateful for all the many ways he helped to shape the organization we have become - from our internal philosophy to our values to our priorities. Yet, no justice to Don's memory would be complete without our also stating how deeply Dr. Don Edward Beck affected the lives of multiple people on our team....Don, we hope you know the enormity of the lives you impacted...not just millions in South Africa, but all over the world. The seeds you planted in the hearts and minds of those who knew you are blooming and will will continue to help guide generations to come!

(h.c.) was not only humbled to be included, but Ervin L谩szl贸 selected an edited down version of her contribution as the introduction into the ebook version of his newest book, "The UpShift: Wise Living On Planet Earth".

The Tolteca Reported on Outreach Efforts During The Pandemic to The Memnosyne Institute's Executive Director, Phillip E. Collins. Adaptations to quarantine restrictions included not only their successful delivery of KN95 masks to multiple communities in multiple cities and towns, (via Memnosyne Institute's "Masks For Life" initiative), including to other Native American tribes as well as working with churches and educational institutions.....but also launching online education programs teaching meditation to students internationally, the basics of the temescal, and more. They have also adapted to reaching out to youth via syncing ancient prayers with techno/dance music as a way to redirect the youth's attraction to alcohol and the efforts have been successful with many youth preferring to dance without drugs to music with cultural meaning. They have also participated in educational documentaries that will be shown in Spain and Netflix. Their medicine garden and cactus garden have grown and they are hosting the indigenous senate meetings for Mexican tribal leaders at the cultural center as well. There is lots more on the horizon, but these are just a few of the ongoing efforts that they have been successful with despite the pandemic.

As Congress passed a bill to establish June 19, aka Juneteenth, as a national holiday commemorating the end of slavery in the United States, The Memnosyne Institute's GreenSourceDFW "Green Source On the Air" podcast will tackle local environmental justice issues through the lens of race for its "Green Juneteenth" themed online broadcast this month.

The online show, which airs TONIGHT Thursday, June 17th, at 6:00pm on Zoom, will feature three guests who have all worked on environmental justice issues in the Dallas area over the last few years:

When: TONIGHT Thursday June 17th 2021 6:00pm

Where: Zoom, https://us02web.zoom.us/j/82504126057

Ernest McMillan -
received the 2019 Green Source DFW Environmental Justice Award. He is a Dallas native who joined the Civil Rights movement in the 1950s before launching the Environmental Justice Network of Dallas in 2018 decades later. A relative newcomer to environmental causes, in 2019 he leaped in to organize a 3-day summit with General Russel Honor茅, an internationally known author and speaker on disaster preparedness who now focuses on addressing climate change.

Collin Yarbrough -
a graduate student at SMU鈥檚 Lyle School of Engineering. He will talk about his work on the Environmental Injustice Archive, a collaborative project between Downwinders at Risk, SMU Sustainability and Development Program, Paul Quinn鈥檚 Urban Research Initiative, and the Clinton Global Initiative University.

Dawan Shockley -
will talk about the Wyatt-Shockley Community Garden, a project of the Skip Shockley Foundation. Shockley, who serves as COO of the Foundation, created the nonprofit with his cousin Neyssa Shockley to honor his uncle, a member of the Dallas/Denton Chapter of the Black Panthers, who worked to relieve food insecurity before his death in March of last year. The garden is named for both his uncle and his great grandmother, a Choctaw native who raised his uncle and Dawan's mother after their mother died. Ground was broken on the garden in December on the family鈥檚 property, left vacant after a house fire. Shockley, who also sits on the board of the Slow Food DFW, said the garden is a pilot program, which he hopes to replicate across Dallas.

I am deeply honored to be asked to participate in the work of these three remarkable organizations this month: Commissary Is Very Necessary - CIVN, The Akshaya Patra Foundation, and African American Museum of Dallas! All three of these organizations are doing stellar work above and beyond what is expected of them. As one of the co-founders of The Memnosyne Institute, I can personally vouch for the insightful outreach work led by Marcus X Russell and D'Ashleigh Brooks via Commissary Is Very Necessary who blend a global view with pragmatic local impact empowering struggling DFW communities as well as those up in Baltimore, and I also personally vouch for the beautiful balance of culture and history with insightful relevance led by Harry Robinson of the African American Museum where one of our country's leading curators, Phillip E. Collins, has personally curated the current "FIRE!" exhibition on the late Mr. imagination's work! Mr. Imagination was a prolific folk artist who directly inspired many local artists and community leaders, myself included! Meanwhile, working with The Memnosyne Institute's FoodSourceDFW program really has helped me to better understand the importance of work like that carried out by the Akshaya Patra Foundation which feeds 1.74 million children in India a day and hopes to be feeding 3 million children every day by 2023!

(Activist - Publicist - Entrepreneur)

Felt inspired to acknowledge a quote from one of the truly remarkable women in my life who has led a life of activism from fighting for desegregation alongside MLK's selected representatives in Louisiana (she was the university student leader he selected to coordinate the students) to joining other activists, our friend Tamara K. DeS谩nchez and me in McAllen to stand in front of the bus so photographs with proof of the children in cages could be captured, the daughter of Holocaust survivors, the first woman to own a Dallas construction company that went after city contracts, the designer of an interfaith initiative for The Memnosyne Institute that brings together Muslim youth to wrap Christmas presents for homeless Christian children in order to promote interfaith connections in Dallas and the compassionate, supportive mother of a hearing impaired daughter and a gay son, she never hesitates to take a strong, bold and firm stand against bigotry of any kind and has been an unquestionable champion for our work at The Memnosyne Institute. Isabell Rossignol, I take my hat off to you!

So adorable!馃グ馃悽馃グ馃悽馃グ馃悽

Enjoyed a wonderful exploration of potential collaborations with Leila Akahloun, Special Advisor to Dame Gra莽a Machel, 路the founder of the Gra莽a Machel Trust about ways the both The Memnosyne Institute and UTF Holdings might collaborate with their efforts to magnify positive impact in the future. Who knows where that will lead? Truly humbling and exciting to be exploring these things....and then as we did so while walking up the beach, we stumbled across this giant Galapagos tortoise enjoying an afternoon nap! Just too cute!
