    AN EID PREP EVENT FOR MUSLIM REFUGEES IN COLUMBUS

    This year we will hold a Two-Day OPEN HOUSE at MY Deah's - Shop For A Cause
    to share our Eid Blessings with our Muslim Refugee and other brothers and
    sisters that are facing financial difficulties this year.

    The event will be held on Friday and Saturday, June 23-24. We will be
    preparing the store for the event on June 22nd.

    We will use our pantry tracker to determine the need of the recipient
    families. All Eligible Families will receive the following items till the
    supplies last:

    1. FREE FOOD through MY Family Special EID Pantry
    2. FREE HENNA PAINTING for girls under 12
    3. EID TOYS up to 3 Toys per family
    4. GOODY BAGS 1 bag per family
    5. EID CLOTHES - Gently Used or New Traditional Clothes
    Families will be able to shop for Eid.
    Adults Clothes for $2, Children Clothes for $1 (Only one outfit per family
    Member). We sell clothes to build children's self esteem. We want to make
    sure that they see their parents buying their Eid clothes.This makes a big
    impact on their personalities.

    HOW YOU CAN HELP:

    1. DONATE – SUPPORT MY PROJECT USA
    Your general donations help us pay for the rent of the store and the
    salaries of our employees that come from refugee communities or are victims
    of human trafficking, family violence, etc.
    MY Project USA is also eligible for 6 categories of Zakat (mandatory annual
    charity tax for wealthy Muslims). Your Zakat can go a long way as it
    protects and empowers the most impoverished and under-served community
    members in Columbus. Here is your link to donate:

    donors

    2. HELP US BUY FOOD – DONATE
    Give us money so we could buy rice, flour, vegetable oil, pasta, pasta
    sauce and sugar to pass along with the fresh produce that comes for free
    from the Mid-Ohio Food Bank – For Muslim donors this would be a great way
    to spend their ZAKAT_UL_FITR (the mandatory charity to pass food to needy
    before Eid prayers). Since we buy at whole-sale and discounted prices, your
    money can go a long way with us.

  • Columbus Die In

    June 23, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
    Senator Rob Portman 37 W Broad St Ste 300, Columbus, Ohio 43215

    Join concerned constituents from Columbus and throughout the central Ohio
    area for a die in to protest the Senate's version of the AHCA. Simultaneous
    events at Senator Portman's other Ohio offices will allow us to send a
    clear message that the AHCA is unacceptable.

    Senator Portman and his Reupblican colleagues think they can get away with
    drafting a secret bill behind closed doors with no input from constituents,
    healthcare groups or policy analysts. Don't let them get away with it!

    Meet us outside Senator Portman's Columbus office. We'll be wearing black
    and carrying tombstones. Check back here later this weekend for ideas on
    how to make your own tombstone and some suggested slogans.

    ∞♥∞ Polyamory UnConference∞♥∞
    June 24, 2017
    Columbus, OH
    http://
    event/polyunconference2017/

    How many times have you gone to a conference and left thinking, "That was
    good, but I wish they'd talked about..."? Or maybe you''ve got a topic that
    you'd LOVE to turn into a workshop but never had the chance. Well, we're
    giving you that chance!

    Beyond the Love is excited to announce the Polyamory UnConference!

    Polyamory Unconference is an event that is run by you, the participants!
    That’s right – attendees get to propose, vote on, and run sessions
    themselves! You’ll set the agenda and create an environment of innovation
    and productive discussion!

    Request topics and workshops on issues that you want to hear about, or
    present something – either a facilitated discussion, a workshop on a
    specific skill, or a lecture on a topic you are familiar with. It's up to
    you! And don't worry, even if you'd prefer to sit in the back rows, you
    still get to help decide what topics get covered, so the workshops are sure
    to be relevant to your interests!

    And, after a full day of classes, we'll have the Unconference Social! Board
    Games? Music? Deep conversations? Coloring? Snuggle? Same concept applies –
    4,000 square feet with multiple rooms allows for you to be who you are in
    the way that is comfortable to you. Volunteer to play your guitar or open
    up a game of Catan; request a poetry jam or follow up conversations from
    topics from the day. It's totally up to you!

    Here are the details, including registration info!

  • Busting Abortion Stigma - A Comfest Workshop

    June 24, 2017 @ 12:35 pm - 1:30 pm
    ComFest 120 W Goodale St, Columbus, Ohio 43215

    An open, honest and compassionate conversation about abortion stigma and
    health care access on The Solar Stage at Comfest!

    Although it is one of the most common medical procedures, abortion remains
    highly stigmatized. Unlike other reproductive health services, abortion is
    shrouded in secrecy and silence. And when people do talk about abortion,
    these conversations are highly charged and fail to accurately capture the
    lived experiences of those who have had abortions.

    Abortion stigma leads to the social, medical, and legal marginalization of
    abortion care and is a barrier to access to high quality, safe abortion
    care. Stigma also perpetuates silence. Folks who have had abortions often
    stay silent; far too often those who actively oppose abortion are the only
    voices many people hear.

    Learn how to bust abortion stigma with the use of compassionate language
    and open, personal conversations calling folks into the abortion access
    movement.

    ** Also, join us for an Intersectional Feminism Discussion Panel on Sunday
    the 25th at the Solar Stage from 2:50 -3:35 **

  • Proud Mouths Speaking Workshop for Women

    June 24, 2017 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm
    pin Hide Map It Looks Like It's Open,13 E Tulane Rd, Columbus, OH 43202, USA

    https://www.facebook.com/events/1129020650565059/

    As marginalized people, we're often being talked over or silenced. Because
    of this, it can be hard to feel worthy of raising one's own voice. After
    many years of performing stand-up comedy and willingly putting myself in
    public speaking situations, I'm thrilled to have the opportunity to share
    what I've learned with you.

    In this workshop, we'll be exploring what it feels like to be confident
    while verbally expressing yourself in front of a group. There's a lot of
    mental preparation that comes before getting on the stage, as this is where
    you'll harness your power and volume as a performer. The safe space we
    create together will help you to push your performance and creativity to
    new heights.

    We'll walk through five different exercises as a group, all designed for a
    specific purpose. We'll be digging into ways to help you feel worthy of
    raising your voice, techniques to help you convey emotion through speech,
    and improving your overall presentation skills. We'll also practice getting
    more comfortable occupying physical space.

    Please make sure to bring a notebook to write in, a pen or pencil, any/all
    questions you have about how to amplify your voice, and your own personal
    "you-ness."

    Space is extremely limited, so buy a ticket ASAP.

    Can't wait to see you!

    *This event is trans and non-binary inclusive.

    July 2, 2017 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

    Join us to learn about the Power of Plants!

    Find out why we seldom hear about nutritional interventions and treatments
    for America's most common diseases, including cancer, diabetes, heart
    disease, Alzheimer's and obesity. Lifestyle Medicine is sweeping the globe
    and physicians are setting aside prescription pads in favor of grocery
    lists. We'll review the work of experts in the field of plant-based
    medicine so you're informed about your full range of health-improvement
    options, starting with simple and affordable nutritional adjustments.
    You'll leave enlightened, encouraged, and empowered!

    What is healthiest for our personal health is also healthiest for our
    planet, so a portion of our discussion will include food choices & the
    environment to include climate change.

    There is no charge, however, a great deal of time goes into keeping this
    information up-to-date, so a donation of $5-$10 is suggested. SEATING IS
    LIMITED, so please register in advance!

  • Restored Citizens & Communities for Change - Monthly Meeting

    July 17, 2017 @ 5:00 pm - 5:00 pm
    St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Church,386 Buttles Ave. Columbus, Ohio 43215

    www.rcc4c. org

    Meetings are held the 3rd Monday of the month from 5:00pm - 7:00pm at St.
    Francis of Assisi Catholic Church, located at 386 Buttles Ave. in Columbus
    (just west of Goodale Park).

    About & Mission:

    RCC4C is an alliance of restored citizens and advocates who are working
    together to affect changes in our criminal justice system. We believe in a
    society where people are given second chances and the opportunity for
    redemption.

    Unfortunately, our present criminal justice system uses perpetuating
    punishment and collateral sanctions to create an underclass among us. The
    formerly incarcerated must have the ability to be rehabilitated and return
    to their families and the community with the tools necessary to rebuild and
    restructure their lives.

    Indeed, social justice demands that the criminal justice system be
    reevaluated, that barriers to employment, housing and other critical
    services be removed, and that increased resources—pre and post release—be
    used to assist individuals to restore their lives.

    Those closest to the problems have insights about these issues and their
    voices must be heard as solutions are crafted. Restored citizens’
    perspectives and those whose lives have been impacted by the criminal
    justice system provide a different lens for community members and decision
    makers to think about criminal justice issues. This shift in thinking is
    necessary to achieve broad, meaningful, humane and lasting criminal justice
    reform.

    Advocacy Priorities:

    * Improve the support systems for those who are re-entering society
    from incarceration - It is estimated that 95% of prisoners will be
    released back into the community. These individuals and receiving
    communities would be better served if those who are returning have
    reliable access to housing, mental health care, recovery programs,
    and sustainable employment that will keep them out of poverty. This
    will help to reduce recidivism, reduce violence, and heal and
    stabilize families.
    * Promote humane treatment and restorative measures for those currently
    incarcerated – A majority of those entering our jails and prisons
    suffer with mental illness and/or addiction. These individuals need
    access to effective treatment. In 2015, Ohio prisons held 10 times
    the amount of mentally ill than mental health institutions in our
    state. [v] Furthermore, 80% of prisoners in Ohio have not completed
    high school and lack critical skills needed to maintain gainful
    employment, which is critical to the stability of the family. [vi]
    Restoration and rehabilitation needs to be central to the treatment
    of those currently incarcerated.
    * Lower the population in our county jails and state prisons – Our
    Jails and prisons are costly not only to individuals and families who
    are directly impacted by incarceration, but also to the taxpayers in
    Ohio. Since 1980 Ohio’s prison population has more than tripled. 1 in
    4 state employees work in corrections. [vii] There are many areas in
    need of reform to help reduce the numbers of people incarcerated,
    including how we police our communities, creating more alternatives
    to incarceration, sentencing reform, and changing policies like
    mandatory minimums which limit judicial discretion.
    * Address policies and practices which serve as the foundation for
    unequal representation of black males, people of color, and the
    economically disadvantaged within the criminal justice system- The
    majority of individuals incarcerated are already marginalized in our
    society. Many policies and procedures used in our criminal justice
    system further target and disenfranchise these populations,
    increasing opportunity and wealth disparities in our communities.
    Issues like high costs for attorneys, court fees and bail also place
    many at a disadvantage maneuvering the criminal justice system.

    and beyond the $10,000 mark. Help us make a difference on April 22nd. Join
    the ride! 10,30, and 75 miles routes (and a few in between). Pass the
    word... We're BAaaaack 🙂
