They want recognition as employees of the big shipping companies they drive for, and they want the companies to own the trucks, assuming responsibility for truck safety and repair conditions and paying the insurance on their loads. As compensation for the heavy responsibilities they bear, the drivers make an average of about $28,500 a year, out of which come various expenses borne as truck owners.The Seattle protest was the most recent of similar protests taking place over the past four years and more in the ports of Los Angeles/Long Beach, Oakland, and New York/New Jersey, all with the strong involvement of faith groups in those cities, including Episcopal clergy and lay people. The blue-green alliance, called the Coalition for Clean and Safe Ports, is pushing for a major cleanup of the air around the ports befouled by diesel fumes from the aging trucks, and for the emergence of the drivers from what has been called a “sweatshop on wheels” work environment. (For example, drivers are forbidden to exit their trucks to take a bathroom break while at work, forcing many to carry “pee bottles” in their cabs.)As employees they would be protected under federal labor laws, and have the right to collective bargaining.In August of last year, 17 young adult Episcopalians from around the country came to Seattle for a five-day Eco-Justice immersion experience. The group toured the port, met with port drivers, visited impacted neighborhoods, and learned from local organizers.The port tour helped make those and other Seattle eco-justice connections clear as the young adults heard about low wages, poor working conditions, air and noise pollution, and environmental health impacts. The event was sponsored by the Episcopal Church’s Office for Economic and Environmental Affairs and the Office of Young Adult Leadership and Vocations.In early February, I was privileged to be present at an extraordinary organizing meeting of about 300 highly energized Seattle drivers, who ran the meeting themselves. The drivers, mainly from Ethiopia, Somalia, Eritrea and other East African countries, exhibited a notable respect for the democratic process in the way they conducted their meeting. One repeatedly disruptive person was nonetheless freely allowed to voice her views. It struck me powerfully that the leaders that night, many of whom were refugees from brutally antidemocratic and authoritarian regimes, had early on absorbed Americans’ respect for the democratic process, and were putting it into practice in their meeting, perhaps doing it better than we ourselves sometimes do.Here in Seattle, the drivers’ walkout was heavily reported by the press; and the strong support of many community, labor and religious supporters, including Muslim leaders, unexpectedly resulted in the passage of a bill late last month in the lower chamber of the Washington State Legislature to recognize the drivers as employees, thus abolishing their independent contractor status. Although the bill died in the state senate, the Port of Seattle and the large shipping companies have been sobered by the sudden emergence of the port drivers and their community allies.As for the drivers, they returned to work after a two-week walkout without major retaliation against them by the companies, and continue to build support from the rest of the 1,500 port drivers as well as from the public. In support of the state senate bill giving the drivers employee status, Greg Rickel, Episcopal Bishop of Olympia and a steadfast supporter of the port drivers’ actions for justice, in a letter to the chair of the State Senate Labor and Commerce Committee wrote: “In our church tradition, we ask newly baptized persons to take a vow to uphold ‘the dignity and respect of every human being.’ [This proposed law] … seems to be the most pressing because it does, in fact, bear on the dignity and respect of human beings.”Nationally, a decisive change in the federal law that governs environmental and working conditions at all the ports is needed. We can all support the Clean Ports Act of 2011 (HR 572). Address comments to U.S. Rep. John L. Mica (R-Florida), chair of the House Subcommittee on Highways and Transit, or ranking committee member U.S. Rep. Nick Rahall (D-West Virginia).— The Rev.

Su salud es buena y no hubo que pagar el rescate que pedían, dijo el periódico.Por primera vez en décadas la Conferencia de Obispos Católicos Romanos de Cuba ha pedido al gobierno cubano que la isla tenga “un nuevo orden político”. Con palabras bien escogidas la declaración pide que gobierno haga actualización de “reformas políticas democráticas”. El presidente de la Conferencia el arzobispo de Santiago de Cuba, Dionisio García Ibáñez, dice que “debe haber derecho a la diversidad de pensamientos“. Añade que “Cuba es la nación de todos los cubanos con sus diferencias y aspiraciones”.En una conferencia sobre la religión en Cuba, el historiador Marcos Antonio Ramos dijo que en Cuba hay budistas, hindúes, musulmanes, en pequeñas cantidades en distintas poblaciones de la isla, y por supuesto, conocemos que “hay todo tipo de grupos sincréticos”. Observadores locales afirman que “hay más personas relacionadas con el sincretismo religioso afrocubano que con cualquier otra religiosidad”. La conferencia fue pronunciada en el Salón Bacardí de la Universidad de Miami.Un nuevo libro, The Westminster Standards del profesor y teólogo presbiteriano Morton Smith ha sido publicado recientemente. El libro es una colección de declaraciones doctrinales con el fin de hacerlas más asequibles a laicos y clérigos. “Vivimos en un mundo donde la gente está más interesada en cosas triviales que en los fundamentos de nuestra fe”, dijo el autor, añadiendo que el libro intenta hacer más fácil la compresión de las declaraciones históricas de fe a través de los tiempos.El vocero del Vaticano Federico Lombardi, ha negado que la Santa Sede quiera proteger indebidamente al arzobispo Józef Wesolowski, nuncio apostólico en la República Dominicana, acusado de abuso sexual. Relevarlo de su cargo y llamarlo a Roma antes que las autoridades dominicanas emitan su informe, significa “cuán serio se han tomado las cosas”, dijo Lombardi.La situación de los inmigrantes haitianos en la República Dominicana es motivo de preocupación para las iglesias. En una reciente reunión en Santo Domingo se dijo que existe “una creciente intolerancia y cierto sentimiento de hostilidad hacia los inmigrantes haitianos” aún cuando ambas naciones comparten historias similares y una misma isla, La Española. El obispo episcopal Julio César Holguín dijo que aunque la situación es difícil, hay que apreciar con gratitud la contribución de los inmigrantes haitianos.Un informe que circula en internet dice que la situación de Venezuela es incierta y no muy prometedora. Cita por ejemplo la escasez progresiva de alimentos, la creciente inseguridad ciudadana, la inflación galopante, la ineficiencia administrativa constante, los apagones frecuentes y la creciente impopularidad de los gobernantes.El santuario mariano de Lourdes, celebra el 150 aniversario de su famosa procesión nocturna, que en honor de la Virgen se celebra desde 1863 a la luz de las velas. Lourdes es una ciudad y comuna francesa situada en la región de Mediodía-Pirineos, a una altitud de 400 metros sobre el nivel del mar. Se convierte, a partir del siglo XIX, en importante centro religioso católico romano de peregrinación, donde tuvieron lugar las visiones experimentadas por la niña Bernadette Soubirous. Se cuentan por miles las personas que han sido sanadas de alguna dolencia.El huracán y la tormenta que azotan a 29 de los 32 estados de México nunca habían sido vistos. El gobierno calcula que hay más de un millón de personas afectadas. Por lo menos 87 personas han perdido sus vidas. En el balneario de Acapulco en la costa del Pacífico hay miles de turistas esperando ser evacuados. “México necesita ayuda internacional”, dicen los expertos.Aunque ha habido leves mejorías la economía de Estados Unidos no acaba de despegar. La Oficina Nacional del Censo informa que unos 46.5 millones de estadounidenses viven en la pobreza. La última disminución significativa en la tasa de la pobreza se produjo en el 2006. El gobierno federal considera que una familia de cuatro personas que tenga un ingreso inferior a $23,492, está en la pobreza.Un estudio realizado por el Seminario Hartford, Connecticut, revela que debido a la crisis económica por la que pasa Estados Unidos más y más iglesias funcionarán sin un pastor a tiempo completo que recibe un salario y otros beneficios. La vacante será llenada por los miembros de la iglesia o un clérigo a tiempo parcial. En la actualidad sólo el 2 por ciento de las iglesias de tradición protestante tiene un ministro a tiempo parcial, la mayoría sin recibir remuneración monetaria.REFRÁN.

Bishop Philip Duncan (Central Gulf Coast) got the Diocesan ERD representative involved immediately and we received immediate funds to help with the care of the evacuees. Since Greenville is the first major community on I-65 north of Mobile, we had over 500 evacuees a day for several days.Once again, following Ivan, ERD was very important to our outreach.

VanHook, II as Executive Director Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York New Berrigan Book With Episcopal Roots Cascade Books Rector Washington, DC Curate Diocese of Nebraska Submit a Press Release [Episcopal Relief & Development press release] Episcopalians, friends and partner agencies around the globe are joining together to celebrate Episcopal Relief & Development’s 75th Anniversary.  The 75-week celebration, which will continue through the end of 2015, invites supporters to learn more about the organization’s programs and get involved in campaigns to raise $7.5 million to sustain its vital work.In 1940, the National Council of The Episcopal Church established Episcopal Relief & Development – originally the Presiding Bishop’s Fund for World Relief – to respond to the needs of European refugees fleeing World War II.  Now, working on behalf of the Church with partners in nearly 40 countries, the organization continues its legacy of bringing together the generosity of Episcopalians and others to help communities overcome challenges and create lasting change.“At this milestone anniversary, Episcopal Relief & Development is celebrating 75 years of healing a hurting world, together with our partners and supporters around the globe whose contributions of time, talent and treasure have made this work happen,” said Rob Radtke, the organization’s President.  “Each year, more than 3 million people participate in innovative, locally led programsthat boost harvests while protecting the environment, prevent diseases by mobilizing local volunteers and empower people to build livelihoods through financial and skills training.  It is a joy to be part of the community of people whose efforts support this life-giving work.”Led by a volunteer Steering Committee and an Honorary Committee co-chaired by Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori and her predecessors, the Rt. Rev. Frank T. Griswold and the Rt. Rev. Edmond L. Browning, the 75th Anniversary Celebration provides many opportunities to engage more deeply with Episcopal Relief & Development’s programs and get involved in promoting and sustaining the organization’s work.  These opportunities are detailed in a special web section at http://www.episcopalrelief.org/75, which also includes a social media hub around the celebration hashtag #AllHands75, and an interactive historical timeline.One of the cornerstones of the celebration is a traveling photo exhibition, which features 33 iconic images of Episcopal Relief & Development’s work, along with in-depth explanations and personal reflections through an accompanying e-docent app.  Having previewed at Executive Council in June, the exhibition officially launches at New York City’s Cathedral of St. John the Divine and continues its national tour with stops in Denver, San Francisco and Cincinnati.  Other venues are being confirmed.Similarly, the organization’s 75 Stories Project provides a window into the programs, events and personalities that have shaped the last 75 years and are changing lives today. Individuals and groups are encouraged to offer reflections and stories through the Share Your Story page, and inspire and energize others to join the celebration.“As the Chair of Episcopal Relief & Development’s Board of Directors, I am honored to have personally witnessed a deepening in both the organization’s impact, through the strategic integration of programs that address poverty, hunger and disease, and its ability to engage and energize supporters across the Church and the wider community,” said the Right Reverend Robert J. O’Neill, Bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Colorado.  “I invite everyone to join in the celebration of what we have accomplished together over the last 75 years.”Episcopal Relief & Development has created a variety of resources to help individuals, congregations, dioceses, schools and groups to join the 75th Anniversary Celebration.  Worship and prayer resources build awareness and solidarity with the organization’s partners worldwide, and faith formation materials can spark multi-generational conversation about global needs and what each person can do to help.  Additionally, five campaign toolkits provide easy-to-use informational leaflets, images, videos and creative ideas to rally communities around a specific issue, or support the organization’s overall mission.75th Anniversary Campaign: Lasting solutions to poverty, hunger and diseaseCarry the Water Campaign: Clean water, hygiene and sanitationFast to Feed Campaign: Sustainable agriculture and livestockThrive to Five Campaign: Maternal and child healthPennies to Prosperity Campaign: Vocational training and micro-financeThe overall goal of the campaigns is to raise $7.5 million by the end of 2015.  Downloadable toolkits are available on the organization’s website to help individuals and groups to invite their communities to make a 75th Anniversary contribution and join the celebration.“Episcopal Relief & Development is one of the foremost outward expressions of faith for Episcopalians, and one of the best examples of what we can accomplish when we join with our brothers and sisters in the US and internationally to strengthen communities and create a thriving future,” said Dr. Catherine George, Chair of the 75th Anniversary Celebration Steering Committee and former Episcopal Relief & Development Board Member from the Diocese of New Jersey.  “I think this is great cause for celebration, and I am excited be leading the efforts to honor Episcopal Relief & Development’s 75th Anniversary.”For more information about Episcopal Relief & Development and the 75th Anniversary Celebration, visit http://www.episcopalrelief.org/75 or call 1.855.312.HEAL (4325).

Please enter your comment! Want to go solar?  Did you miss the deadline to join the West Orange Solar Co-op?  Good News!  You can now join the Orange County Solar Co-op.Orange County homeowners looking to add solar power to their homes have an opportunity to do so at a discount through a new solar co-op program. The initiative is spearheaded by Orange County Government, the League of Women Voters of Florida and Florida Solar United Neighborhoods (FL SUN), which is a local nonprofit working to organize solar co-ops across the state. According to the Florida Public Service Commission, 11,626 utility customers (less than 1 percent) in Florida have rooftop solar installed. In Florida, these co-ops have worked with nearly 340 homes and businesses across the state.(from left): Orange County employees Lori Cunniff and Jon Weiss (both have solar); co-president of the League of Women Voters of Central Florida Sara Isaac; Orange County Mayor Teresa Jacobs and Florida Director of FL SUN Angela DeMonbreunSolar co-ops provide bulk discounts – up to 20 percent – for a group of homeowners who are interested in purchasing solar panels. As part of a solar co-op, citizens benefit from the educational process and each participant signs his or her own contract with the installer, and everyone gets the discount. All homeowners who reside in Orange County are eligible to participate in the co-op.Orange County Mayor Teresa Jacobs officially signed up for the co-op and she’s hoping other residents will consider joining as well.“This technology is an excellent long-term investment and we’re delighted to invite our residents to participate. The Orange County Solar Co-op is a powerful way to leverage our collective buying power and go solar together,” said Mayor Jacobs. “Florida’s outlook is bright for solar and Orange County’s Co-op can help lead the way.”Joining the co-op does not obligate members to purchase panels. After the co-op receives bids from solar installers in the area, members will select one or two companies to perform the installations at a group discount.The exact price of a PV (photovoltaic) system is dependent on homeowners’ preference in system size and their home’s energy consumption. Additionally, there is a federal tax credit of 30 percent towards installation costs. Homeowners have the option to install the size PV system that fits their budget.In addition to promoting the solar co-op to residents, Orange County is encouraging its more than 7,500 employees to consider signing up.East Orlando resident Jon Weiss, director of Orange County’s Community, Environmental and Development Services department, is one employee who already participated in a solar co-op and had solar installed in May of this year.“The co-op really helped us understand the solar project costs and benefits. I realized the questions I had were the same ones that my neighbors had, and I had confidence in the information provided by the contractor selected by the co-op.” said Weiss. “We sized the system to match our budget, and are very pleased with the savings on our power bill. Our up-front investment should be recouped within the next five to six years.”Orange County has a goal to obtain 500 participants in the co-op program with 30 percent of the residents opting to Go SOLAR. The co-op deadline to sign up is December 2016. Orange County is sponsoring Community Power Network and FL SUN, 501(c)(3) non-profits, to provide technical assistance to neighborhood solar co-ops at no charge to participants.“I am excited to work with Orange County residents to educate them about the benefits of solar energy,” said FL SUN Co-op State Director Angela DeMonbreun. “If you’ve ever thought about going solar before, this is the perfect opportunity to do so. We have established that this model works in Orange County and in other states.”As part of the Go SOLAR Florida initiative, Orange County and other partners have worked to streamline the permitting process for solar installations. Now solar permits in the county can be processed in a single day on a walk-through basis. Also, use of one of the standard designs that have been pre-approved by the Florida Solar Energy Center can save additional time and money.To learn more and register for an information session, visit www.flsun.org/orange-county or email [email protected] Upcoming information sessions are as follows:Aug. 22 from 6:30 – 8 p.m. at the Orange County Agricultural Extension Office located at 6021 S.
