People often wonder what our Power Up, Speak Out mentoring program looks like, and the answer is.... FUN! Having a community member involved in our students' lives encourages connection, fosters healthy social interaction, and encourages that #1 Healthy Relationship Statement: "I get to be myself!"

Defying gravity to show that healthy relationships can involve metered risk (our feelings) and lots of balance! Or maybe just hanging out with our terrific mentees from Roosevelt MiddleSchool and their mentors during lunch!😀

U.S. Senate: Contacting U.S. Senators

Today is the VAWA Senate Day of Action, and we’re calling on you to TAKE ACTION. The Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) reauthorization was passed by the House more than six months ago, and the Senate has yet to introduce a VAWA reauthorization bill. VAWA is a major source of funding for DSVS and other organizations like ours, and since VAWA was first passed in 1994, domestic violence has declined by 63%. This reauthorization will strengthen protection for the most vulnerable, including immigrants, LGBTQ+, and Native American women. VAWA funding is critical to maintaining our operations at current levels. Please reach out to Montana Sen. Tester and Sen. Daines and urge them to pass the VAWA reauthorization before the end of the year to avoid any interruption in funding. https://www.senate.gov/senators/senators-contact.htm

All questions and comments regarding public policy issues, legislation, or requests for personal assistance should be directed to the senators from your state. Please be aware that as a matter of professional courtesy, many senators will acknowledge, but not respond to, a message from another senato...

International Pronouns Day

It’s International Pronouns Day! It’s a day dedicated to respecting, sharing, and educating about personal pronouns. Referring to people by the pronouns they determine for themselves is basic to human dignity, and being referred to by the wrong pronouns particularly affects transgender and gender nonconforming people. Making your own pronouns known is one way to be more inclusive. Together, we can transform society to celebrate people’s multiple, intersecting identities. https://pronounsday.org/

Were you inspired by the show of solidarity for Indigenous Peoples Day yesterday? We were certainly encouraged to see so many people recognizing this important day. One of the ways you can continue the momentum is by giving to one (or both) of these hardworking charities: The National Indigenous Women's Resource Center at www.niwrc.org or StrongHearts Native Helpline at www. strongheartshelpline.org. Both are doing great things for Native American women and they need our help. Show your support today and make a donation!

Reach Out To the father of his father's father... for it's he who taught his son.... that when...in life...words weren't enough... his fists could overcome... his feelings of insecurity... the anger and rage inside... the notion that somehow force... could protect his childish pride. Through all the years...of anguish and tears... round and round the carousel... again he passed his legacy of pain... his inheritance of hell... to another generation... of men who will never be men... because as he has done to his son... so his son will do again. Animals act on instinct... but only the lowest ones... abuse the family around them... the time has finally come... to show these pathetic creatures... for the cowards they really are... today...gathered here together... we are just the tiniest part... of the huge and growing movement... that is demanding an immediate end... to the tolerance of any abuse... by these animals who think they are men. Fear has kept this lady... from leaving and living her life... isolation has insured him... that she would remain his wife. Love for her innocent children... has forced her to quietly endure... the pain both mental and physical... hoping someday she might find a cure... for whatever it was that changed... the man she loved back when... to the monster who now holds her captive... as he loves her then hits her again. She need but look around... at the army that is gathering before her... to see the power she has gained... through the millions of those who support her. Now she will never be alone... if she should decide to go... now there's a legion of friends... who will help her because they know... just exactly what she is feeling... because they've been there themselves... they've known the terror and uncertainty... the fear of asking for help. So here we are today to offer another solution... we can change the way it is... to how it will be in the future. United we can tell the father... and the father's father before him... it’s his turn to be afraid... because now the laws won't ignore him. This crime will never again... be called just a family matter... next time he raises his fist... to slap, beat...or batter... the lady he promised to love... the love he promised to protect... we promise this lady today... we will never again reject... her pleas for understanding... her fear of leaving her home... her fear of losing her children... her feelings of being alone. All of us here today vow to stand beside you... if you decide to leave... we’ll be there to guide you. All of us here today... vow to change the laws... that have always up till now... ignored the problem because... up till now we've been hiding... like the ostrich with his head in the sand up till now...pretending... we didn't know...so we couldn't understand. But finally...it's out in the open... it's time for the cowards to run there's an army of angry people... and the battle has just begun. How dare you beat the ones who love you... just because you can. from now on...we promise you this... each time you raise your hand... you will hear such a cry... such a blood curdling scream... from the millions of people all over the world... who have lived that horrible dream. You’ll never again be allowed... to think that you have the right... to raise your fist to anyone... because of some stupid fight. It's a shame it took so much pain... to finally see the way... maybe...at last....it’s coming to an end... as all of us join here today... to promise each and every woman... with bruises and broken bones... reach out...and we will be there... and you will never, ever...again be alone. co 1999 skybird pub co james bruce joseph sievers
