October marks #BreastCancerAwarenessMonth.

#DidYouKnow A woman’s risk of breast cancer nearly doubles if she has a first-degree relative (mother, sister, daughter) who has been diagnosed with breast cancer. Less than 15% of women who get breast cancer have a family member diagnosed with it.

Let’s continue to raise awareness about the impact of breast cancer.

"Speak LIFE . . . Saturday," -- KEEPING THE LEGACY OF DR. DOROTHY B. FEREBEE ALIVE | TELLING HER STORY – As a Black woman and the great-niece of this extraordinary pioneering Black female physician, international humanitarian, former Chair of then DC Commission on the Status of Women, 2nd National President of the National Council of Negro Women (NCNW),4th National VP of the Girl Scouts of the USA, and 10th International President of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. (AKA), who holds a notable place in Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. history, I am dedicated to telling my aunt’s story, keeping her legacy alive, and raising the awareness about her outstanding achievements that paved the way for other Black women and girls. As a legacy member of AKA, I was also extremely proud to see her featured in "TWENTY PEARLS: The Story of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated®," the first full-length, feature documentary film about a Black Greek-letter organization distributed by a major cable network (Comcast | Xfinity1). Make sure you check out the documentary. As part of my mission, I am eager to share with AKA chapters, NCNW sections, community groups, and others who would like to learn more about this exceptional civil rights and social justice activist, who is also featured in the historic Smithsonian National Museum of African American History & Culture (NMAAHC). JOIN ME on Friday, April 30, at 11:00 AM/EST, for another installment of SANKOFA KONVERSATIONS Facebook LIVE, and an informative discussion about her amazing life. Please INVITE ME to energize your Zoom, Facebook or Instagram LIVE events with an engaging presentation about how my aunt SPENT HER “DASH,” and how her accomplishments continue to inspire me to PASS THE TORCH to the NEXT GENERATION OF WOMEN WARRIORS OF COLOR! Pass this message on . . . (www.janiceferebee.com)
Per https://www.alz.org/alzheimers-dementia/facts-figures … for 2019 Between 2000 - 2017 deaths from heart disease have decreased 9% while deaths from Alzheimer's disease have increased 145% ☹️ Women disproportionately get Alzheimer's than Men. Alzheimer's is not an aging issue. It strikes as early as 30.
Just thought some of your members would be interested in this networking In3 DC is organizing this Friday focusing on women. Let’s connect, share and link for more business. Great Happy Hour amongst women. Let’s connect.
The Springfield Slug Group decided 6 months ago that we needed another 14th street pickup with return to Springfield commuter lot. We wrote a proposal and submitted it after meeting with them. They promised to meet us within a month for a second meeting and to discuss the proposal. They have since refused to respond to our emails, and now have added tow trucks at the existing tow locations that we agreed upon. The are now allowing food trucks to parkin the location, even though 14th street is a now parking zone at any time. They do nothing about it. So now many slugs have not been able to get return rides home. Carpooling is essential to the continued relationship between DC employers and VA workers. This also keeps hundreds of cars off the road, and saves the environment. Bobs, Springfield, is the longest running slug line, and now we are faced with DDOT attempting to end slugging. We really need help with communication with DDOT, as they refuse to meet with us. We’re looking for any assistance you can provide. I personally have written them 5 emails over the last 2 months and they only responded with that they are going through the numerous proposals by the slug community and would get back to us by the end of the week. That was several weeks ago. Also, after asking the slug community for more information, I found that there are no other proposals. They also then refused to respond to our inquiry on what other proposals they have. When I inquire about their promise to meet us after 30 days, they now refuse to respond. Last week there was construction on 7th and D and DDOT refused to allow people to be picked up, nor were we informed that the construction would prohibit pickups. It’s becoming more obvious they want to shut slugging down. They consolidated all of the return pick ups to 3 locations rather than having multiple locations convenient for riders, and now they want to eliminate these locations. Please let us know you can help!!! Nicole Miller
