Green Economy:  People and the Planet

Green Economy: People and the Planet

A Green Economy is how we began to intellectually take care of our planet and the people at the same time.  We can produce mass opportunity in  job and business creation as well as free ourselves from our addiction to fossil fuels.

 
To really understand this is to simply transform what is into what is possible.
 
In order for this idea to materialize, there must be huge investments in infrastructure and environmental projects along with mobilization of all people through information.  Read more

Census 2010 and YOU!

Census 2010 and YOU!

Mentioning the word ‘census’ in the hood is like revealing that you are police looking for information about a crime -  No one participates.  Why is it not cool to give information that would help your community?

The census, conducted every 10 years, is the official count of every person in the country. It is done to help government divide billions of dollars in funding as well as define the political power in Congress and state legislature.

Why is it important for Milwaukee Residents?

Recycle:  Trash Talk

Recycle: Trash Talk

You ever stop and wonder where does all the trash you throw away go?  From you dumpster to the huge garbage truck that struggles through the inner city until it gets to a holding place or a near by landfill.

There is a lot that goes into the disposal of trash from the gas used to keep garbage trucks running to the hours of labor to pick up the trash from each household.

Did you know?

Well-run recycling programs cost less to operate than waste collection, landfilling, and incineration. Read More

Stop the Violence: Get involved!

Stop the Violence: Get involved!

Its been only weeks since the beating death of Derrion Alberts of Fenger High School in Chicago, IL.  You would think that lessons would be learned about the violence in school and just how far these types of situations escalate.

Derrion Albert, 16-year old honor roll student, who attended Bible Class every week, was beaten to death by a mob of other students and young adults on September 24.

Even still, this week alone there has been a series of violent incidents that have led to double digit numbers in arrest at Vincent High School in Milwaukee, WI.  Read More

Non-Violent Lifestyles Preferred

Non-Violent Lifestyles Preferred

Milwaukee, WI - Homicides decreased from 105 in 2007 to 71 in 2008.  Of course, no homicides would be the perfect picture as opposed to the lowest in 23 years; I think it is definitely an improvement well worth mentioning.  What were some of the contributing factors to these decreasing numbers? As a member of Campaign Against Violence (CAV) I want to take it a step further and begin to critically look at the contributing factors so that we can maintain a definite decline in total homicides for 2009.  Read More!
