Delores Tucker is best remembered as a civil rights trailblazer who fought for women of color and toward the end of her life against profane and misogynist lyrics in hip-hop/ rap music. She was born in Philadelphia, PA on October 4, 1927 to Bahamian parents Reverend Whitfield and Captilda Nottage. She served on Philly’s Zoning Commission in 1968 as the first of several prestigious political appointments, including vice-chair of the Pennsylvania Democratic Party (1970).

Community Action Lehigh Valley helped to create The Second Harvest, a network of 200+ community partners that provide food pantries, meal centers, shelters, schools, and senior living centers that serve 500 families each month. It is now a staple of the community. Additionally, a newer partnership with Promise Neighborhoods resulted in a 1/8-acre Seed Farm offering a place of community, sharing meals, dancing, and making music. The story is about food and food apartheid, but the garden is about life. Read the full stories about both community initiatives http://ow.ly/zO6r50HOym1. #communityaction

Despite the Statistics, We Haven’t Lost the War on Poverty

It’s been more than a half-century since President Johnson officially launched the War on Poverty, in his State of the Union address delivered on this day in 1964, and declared that the U.S. had “the power to eliminate poverty from an entire continental nation.” In the decades that followed his decision to invest in jobs, training and aid, the U.S. has experienced, by some measures, tremendous prosperity.

Two years later, he became State Secretary of Property and Supplies.

I'd like to share a rather unusual free resource...parenting tips bumper stickers. Advancing Parenting, a Camarillo CA nonprofit organization, produces parenting tips bumper stickers and makes them available at no cost to schools, organizations, agencies, clinics, businesses, and individuals. There are fifty-one in a set and each one communicates a parenting behavior or practice generally recognized as supporting the healthy development of children. Just one will be read thousands of times! Bumper stickers are a unique and powerful way to educate everyone about parenting. At stoplights drivers and passengers point, smile, and nod. Conversations start up and often a phone is used to take a pic of the sticker right at the stoplight. Presumably, they are being shared on social media. It's wonderful to see! Sets of the stickers can be put in holders and placed on counters and tables so folks can select one or more for their cars. Visit www.advancingparenting.org to order this free resource. Use a computer...our website is not optimized for phones. Please share.
