She was assisted by the Rev. Polly Shigaki, a deacon at St. Peter’s Episcopal Church in Seattle, on the right. Photo: Lynette Wilson/Episcopal News Service[Episcopal News Service – Honolulu] When the Rev. Bao Moua, the first Hmong woman ordained in the Episcopal Church, presided over the closing Eucharist at the triennial Episcopal Asiamerica Ministries National Consultation, it was a big deal.“One of my motivations is to encourage young women to go into ministry,” Moua said following the service in an interview with Episcopal News Service.In the Asian-cultural context, which she explained is still deeply rooted in patriarchy, women often struggle to hear the call, let alone follow it. By example, said Moua, who serves as a priest associate at Holy Apostles Church in St. Paul, Minnesota, she intends to show young women that they, too, can serve in both ordained and lay leadership roles in the church: “to find the balance in our culture and ourselves to stand alongside men.”Throughout the EAM consultation, women occupied larger leadership roles, both serving behind the altar and moderating the three panel discussions and leading workshops.It’s not easy to find Asian women priests, said the Rev. Yein Esther Kim, parish associate at St. Athanasius Episcopal Church in Los Angeles, who despite coming from a family of priests – her father is the Most Rev. Paul Geun-Sang Kim, Anglican bishop of the Diocese of Seoul, and former archbishop of the Province of Korea – didn’t always see herself as a priest. She was inspired in 2001 when South Korea began ordaining women and by the examples of the Rt. Rev. Barbara Harris, an African-American priest who was elected the first woman bishop in the Anglican Communion, and the Rt. Rev. Diane Jardine Bruce, bishop suffragan in the Diocese of Los Angeles.Registration for the Sept. 27-Oct. 1 consultation held at the Ala Moana Hotel topped 267 participants representing Asians from the United States, Canada, England, South Korea and the Philippines and including 40 American and Canadian teenagers.The Rev. Winfred Vergara, the Episcopal Church’s Asiamerica missioner and the Episcopal Asiamerica Ministries National Consultation’s co-dean, preaches at the closing Eucharist on Oct. 1. Photo: Lynette Wilson/Episcopal News Service“We assembled a cast of great plenary speakers and workshop leaders. We wove the tapestry of a program that combined academic and experiential learning,” said the Rev. Winfred Vergara, the Episcopal Church’s Asiamerica missioner and the consultation’s co-dean, during the Oct. 1 closing Eucharist.“Our theme: ‘Piko – Celebrate Christ, Community and Creation’ was aptly captured by the youth who performed last night. They said, ‘We came from different places and myriad cultures and many of us met each other for the first time, but now we are friends.’ That is what Christianity is all about … real relationships.”There are some 22 million Asians in the United States, and Asians are its fastest-growing racial group. California has the largest Asian population, 6.8 million; in Hawaii, Asians are the majority at 57.1 percent, according to the most recent U.S. Census data.Seven consultations make up the Episcopal Asiamerica Ministries Council: Chinese, Japanese, Filipino, Korean, South Asian, Southeast Asian and Pacific Islander. The council operates in partnership with the Episcopal Church’s Office of Asiamerica Ministries.Asian American or “Asiamerican” describes Asian immigrants in the United States as well as Asian Americans born in the United States – Chinese, Filipino, Korean, Japanese, Southeast Asian (Vietnamese, Laotian, Hmong, Burmese), and South Asian (Indian, Pakistani, Bangladeshi, Sri Lankan). It also describes the relationship of Asians in the United States with Asian Episcopalians and Asian Anglicans in the global community. Close to two-thirds of the world population identifies as Asian.The strong youth presence made the consultation one of the best ever, said Bayani Rico, EAM Council president and the consultation’s co-dean. The younger generation speaks to “the pan-Asian experience,” and EAM may add an additional convocation for those Asians who don’t identify with a single ethnicity.The Episcopal-Asiamerican church is an immigrant church that in reality speaks one language, said Yunjeong Seol, EAM’s digital media consultant. Oftentimes, the second and third generations don’t “speak the language of the mother country” and wonder how they can serve Asian-American ministries. And, realistically, she said, “bilingual services are hard to maintain.” Seol, who was born in South Korea and earned a Master of Divinity from Episcopal Divinity School, also favors adding a broader convocation.Many people, she said, “identify as interracial. … They don’t know if they are in the Korean or Japanese convocation.”Lake Randall, 15, of Vancouver, British Columbia, center, and Asupa Mila, 15, of San Francisco, left, were among 40 youth from the United States and Canada in attendance at the triennial Episcopal Asiamerica Ministries National Consultation in Honolulu. Photo: Lynette Wilson/Episcopal News ServiceFor Asupa Mila, 15, of San Francisco and Lake Randall, 15, of Vancouver, British Columbia, identity doesn’t really matter so much, they said. What they found in serving alongside one another in service to the community made them come together as friends.Asian identity is something Asiamerican Episcopalians are grappling with on both the east and west coasts. In New York, the Episcopal Asian Supper Table, EAST, invites all people of Asian ancestry to come together, to build “a united community by sharing stories, developing spiritually, and lifting up our membership as leaders in the Episcopal Diocese of New York,” according to the diocese’s website. In the Diocese of Los Angeles, the Asian ministries group is called the Gathering.The Most Rev. Moses Nag Jun Yoo, primate of Korea, preached on Sept. 30 at a service at St. Luke’s Episcopal Church, the first Korean mission in the Episcopal Church, in Honolulu. Photo: Lynette Wilson/Episcopal News ServiceNationally, there’s a push among the EAM leadership to train new leaders in evangelism, church planting and church revitalization. To that end, during the consultation’s opening Eucharist held at the Cathedral Church of St. Andrew, the EAM network introduced the ANDREWS program and its first group of 70 mentors.ANDREWS, an acronym for Asiamerica Network of Disciples, Revivalists, Evangelists, Witnesses and Servant Leaders, is a mentoring program of the Asiamerica Ministries Office in partnership with Episcopal Asiamerica Ministry Council and the Thriving in Ministry project of Virginia Theological Seminary.ANDREWS’ goal is to develop a network of well-trained mentors and disciple-makers from among the EAM ethnic convocations. “Rice and Sing,” an anthology of diverse, Asian-cultural hymns and spiritual songs, is in development, as are in-person training and a virtual classroom.“Vision and dreams are the language of the Holy Spirit,” said Vergara in his closing sermon. “If we don’t dream, how can our dreams come true?”EAM convocations will meet separately in 2019 and come together again as a national consultation in 2021. The consultation last met in Seoul, South Korea, in 2015.– Lynette Wilson is a reporter and managing editor of Episcopal News Service.

Liberación transgénero: ¡Un movimiento cuyo momento es ahora!

first_imgEste artículo detalla los comentarios hechos por el escritor en un seminario web del Workers World Party/Partido Mundo Obrero el 19 de noviembre, “Leslie Feinberg: ‘Recuérdame como revolucionaria’”. Vea el seminario web en Facebook @WorkersWorldParty – Organización política.La bandera transgénero.20 de noviembre: hoy es el Día del Recuerdo de las Personas Transgénero. A este día el anno, 2020 es el año más mortífero registrado por violencia contra las personas transgénero en los EE. UU. Se han registrado más de 30 asesinatos de personas transgénero en el país, con 350 asesinatos registrados en todo el mundo. Desde 2008, al menos 3.600 personas transgénero han sido asesinadas en todo el mundo. (tinyurl.com/y5a2kcdq)De estos asesinatos, el 98 por ciento se cometieron contra mujeres transgénero y personas trans femeninas, principalmente mujeres trans negras y otras mujeres trans de color. Las trabajadoras sexuales transgénero fueron el 62 por ciento de las personas que murieron. Esas cifras no cuentan las innumerables personas trans que murieron “en el armario”, sin haber revelado públicamente su identidad, o aquellas cuyas muertes fueron encubiertas por familiares odiosos. Las cifras no cuentan las innumerables personas trans que han muerto por suicidio, fallecido por atención médica inadecuada y/o malos tratos constantes, o fallecido sin vivienda en las calles.Guerra capitalista contra personas trans y no conformistas de género“Liberación transgénero” es una frase que puede parecer un sueño lejano en este momento. Las personas oprimidas muy bien podrían responder: “¡Estamos a un millón de millas de eso!” Las probabilidades de supervivencia siguen siendo muy altas contra las personas transgénero y no conformes con el género. Pero la liberación trans también parecía muy lejana hace casi 30 años, en 1992, cuando Leslie Feinberg publicó su innovador folleto, “Liberación transgénero: un movimiento cuyo tiempo ha llegado”. (Descarga gratuita en tinyurl.com/y5vg2r43.)Un mes después de que Leslie publicara este trabajo, que libera la historia de las personas trans y no conformistas de género detrás de la cerradura y la llave de la opresión capitalista, la revolucionaria defensora de los transexuales negros Marsha P. Johnson fue encontrada muerta en el río Hudson en la ciudad de Nueva York. Qué época tan desesperada debió haber sido para muchos: tener un faro de esperanza revolucionaria desvanecido en un destino tan cruel.Pero de la misma manera que el legado y el espíritu de lucha de nuestra compañera Leslie Feinberg perdura, también el legado y el espíritu de lucha de Marsha P. Johnson, y el de la líder trans latina Sylvia Rivera, y todos los demás que han iluminado el camino por el cual ahora marchamos.¿No muere el revolucionario? Por supuesto. ¿No sigue viva la revolución? ¡Por supuesto! Las personas transgénero, que recibieron las herramientas de guerreros transgénero revolucionarios como Leslie Feinberg, Marsha P. Johnson, Sylvia Rivera y los que aún viven, como Miss Major y Jennicet Gutierrez, han aprovechado el momento, ¡hoy!Una lucha trans revolucionariaHa llegado nuestro tiempo de liberación. Esta aquí. En este Día del Recuerdo de las Personas Transgénero, debemos tomarnos nuestro tiempo para llorar y llorar a los que perdimos y celebrar sus vidas, y también celebrar nuestras vidas como personas transgénero que aún viven.Entonces debemos continuar librando una lucha revolucionaria contra el capitalismo, tanto su imperialismo como su continuación del colonialismo en el siglo XXI. Este es el sistema opresivo y explotador que desató la opresión transgénero en todo el mundo.En su libro de 1995, “Transgender Warrriors” – el primer análisis marxista extendido de la opresión transgénero – Leslie Feinberg rastreó las raíces del odio y la discriminación contra las personas trans hasta su origen en la formación de la sociedad de clases.La lucha por la liberación transgénero es parte de la lucha de clases. Las personas trans son parte de la clase trabajadora y los oprimidos. En varias intersecciones, se encontrarán mujeres trans negras, que enfrentan la mayor cantidad de violencia de cualquier otro grupo demográfico, así como personas trans morenas, personas indígenas de dos espíritus/trans, personas trans indocumentadas, personas trans discapacitadas, personas trans VIH +, personas trans encarceladas, trabajadoras sexuales trans, personas trans sin hogar y, por supuesto, trabajadoras trans de todo tipo.Feinberg dijo: “La intolerancia contra las personas transgénero es un carcinógeno mortal”, y ze estaba y sigue en lo correcto. Es un veneno en este mundo. Las personas transgénero que se atreven a luchar contra este fanatismo tienen el antídoto y la cura: el socialismo revolucionario.Ganar el socialismo revolucionario significa luchar por la solidaridad entre los oprimidos y los trabajadores. Por lo tanto, es obligatorio que la lucha de liberación transgénero dentro de los EE. UU. – Y la lucha LGBTQ2S + en su conjunto – se una a otras luchas: con el movimiento Black Lives Matter contra el terror policial, con la lucha palestina contra el apartheid israelí, con la lucha por abolir la policía y cárceles, con la lucha por descolonizar esta tierra para que los pueblos indígenas la tengan una vez más, por la lucha por la reparación de los negros e indígenas – y con la lucha contra los bajos salarios, el capitalismo de alta tecnología, la falta de vivienda y la caótica, no planificada economía capitalista que nos mantiene pobres y hambrientos.Para que haya liberación transgénero, debe haber socialismo.

Linkedin Mayor Jerry O’DeaMayor Jerry O’Deaby Bernie English [email protected] INTERNAL Garda investigation into why no charges were brought against City Mayor Jerry O’Dea following an accident in which it was claimed he was over the drink-driving limit will be completed before the end of the month, the Limerick Post has learned.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up And, contrary to initial reports, sources have revealed that no member of the force was suspended after details of the incident first emerged.Meanwhile calls have been made for a statement from the Minister for Justice and the Garda Commissioner following confirmation that the Fianna Fáil councillor, who has served as metropolitan mayor since last June , will face no charges.Anti Austerity Alliance councillor Cian Prendiville said: “There must be full statements now from the Garda Commissioner and the Minister from Justice on how a member of the political establishment could apparently get off scott free for such a serious offence.“All the relevant information should be published, so the public can get the answers for themselves. I find it hard to believe this is simply ‘human error’; it reeks of cronyism and political favouritism. There are serious questions here, and they won’t go away until we have answers.” Councillor Prendiville had previously tried and failed to have this issue discussed at Council meetings. On one occasion it was suggested that he should be removed from the chamber if he continued to raise the issue. He has had two motions on the matter ruled out of order, and the council even refused to record the debate in the minutes. He is now calling for the Council to discuss this issue.“I will be raising that the council must be given an opportunity to discuss this issue, and should support the call for answers on how this happened,” Cllr Prendeville said.Mayor O’Dea could not be reached for comment at time of going to press.At the time, Mayor O’Dea said the accident happened as he had swerved to avoid a car which had left the scene by the time the emergency services arrived.His only official statement on the matter said: ““Following the accident, I cooperated fully with an Garda Siochana and subsequently made no further contact with an Garda Siochana about the issue.“In early May 2015 I was informed there  would be no action against me I consider the matter closed,” his statement concluded.center_img Newcastle West Gardaí move Man and woman arrested after Gardaí seize cash and suspected drugs worth more than €28,000 Email Gardaí across Ireland take on viral dance challenge Advertisement Twitter No vaccines in Limerick yet Shannondoc operating but only by appointmentlast_img read more
