Hello all
Can someone help?

I am about to graduate with my Master's in Art Therapy/Marriage and Family Therapy but I need to finish my thesis/grant. My grant is to provide art therapy interventions to Filipina survivors of domestic violence and their children to strengthen their attachment. In order to finish I need a letter from a domestic violence shelter that states will be able to do the art interventions there. I need the letter to finish the grant and I do not necessarily have to submit the grant for funding.

I have try calling the Asian Women's Shelter and there has been no response. If anyone has any contacts here, CORA or any other domestic violence shelter that serves Filipinas and their children in the Bay Area please let me know. You can contact me by email cgruspe@yahoo.com or by phone 415-505-8895.

Thanks

=========================

*WHY I THINK BARACK OBAMA IS THE BEST CANDIDATE FOR FILIPINOS*
*By Charmaine Manansala*

I've spent the past few weeks criss-crossing the country talking to
AAPIs about Barack Obama and the vision he has for our community, and
for our country. I want to say a quick word about where we are in
this campaign to Filipinos.
Filipino Americans across the country are working nationwide through
the Obama campaign and Filipino Americans for Obama. Leading to
November 4th, they are working diligently to deliver the electoral
votes that will make Barack Obama our 44th President of the United
States. This is because Filipino Americans, young and old, all
recognize the challenges America faces, after all they impact our
lives every day. Our economy is in crisis, thanks in large part to the
Wall Street-first economic policies pushed through by President Bush.
Our nation is in an endless war; our veterans are not receiving the
care they deserve; and our health care system is broken. We need to
call upon the can do American spirit to lift ourselves out of this
precarious situation.

In many ways the Filipino-American community's experience embodies
this American spirit. Barack Obama has shared the same experience. He
understands keeping the American dream alive, and he knows that
government must keep its promise to you and all of the American
people. This is one of the core reasons why I believe that Barack
Obama is THE right candidate for Filipino-Americans. Barack first became
acquainted with the diversity and richness of Asia
and the AAPI community as a child growing up in Hawai'i. Members of
his family are of Asian descent and ours is a community that he became
a part of while living in Los Angeles, New York and Chicago. The AAPI
story and community are personal to him, and he is committed to
keeping the door of opportunity open to Filipino Americans and
expanding opportunities for all Americans. Senator Obama understands
the Asian American and Pacific Islander community and the critical
role that we play in this nation. Barack Obama and Joe Biden are committed
to policies that will help
the Filipino American community succeed. For instance, many Filipino
families rely on family reunification
policies to help them build better lives in the United States.
However, AAPI families have some of the longest immigration backlogs.
That's why Barack has fought to improve and pass a comprehensive
immigration bill. He has put greater emphasis on keeping immigrant
families together. The Philippines and the United States have always
enjoyed a special relationship, and I assure you that Barack Obama and
Joe Biden are committed to building on our strong ties.

As we saw so clearly during the first debate, it's a choice of the
past versus the future. Barack Obama demonstrated the vision and
judgment to be Commander in Chief. He'll change the failed policies
of the last 8 years, and pursue 21st Century policies in Iraq,
Afghanistan, and in reinvigorating our alliances.

And on the homefront, again as seen during the debate, Barack Obama
demonstrated he'll be a fierce advocate for the middle class, and
offer the change we need on the economy, health care, and energy
independence.

Kababayan, we can create the changes we seek in America. But this
will only happen if ordinary people rise up to demand change. Just as
some of you participated in the people power movement in Edsa, I'm
also asking you to get involved NOW, and to encourage your families to
look at the candidates, come to an informed decision, and vote.

The reason is simple: the Filipino American community deserves better.

We want fundamental change in our country. We want to turn the page
on the failed policies of the past eight years and renew the promise
of America. We simply cannot afford a third Bush term. And let's be
clear. That is exactly what we'd get with John McCain.

As Senator Clinton says- No Way, No How, No McCain, No Palin. I know
there were many in our community who supported Senator Clinton in this
year's elections and I want to say a word to you. Senator Clinton is
someone I admire tremendously. I am a proud "Clintonista" who worked
in the Clinton administration for the first White House Initiative on
Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders. If you love Hillary, if you
believe in her, if you trust her leadership and if you gave her your
vote, then I ask you to do the one thing that she has asked of all of
us now: do everything you can to elect Barack Obama as the next
President of the United States.

The stakes are too high and the price of apathy is too great this year
to give anything but our all.

You know, there's been a lot of talk this year about making history.
And I believe making history is an important goal. But the more
important opportunity we have in November is to make possibility
reality.

Next year, school children all over America will sit in classrooms
looking up at the portraits of the American presidents on the wall.
After scanning past the first 43, I hope they'll take a good look at
number 44 because that one will look different. And suddenly, our
kids will start to think, "Maybe I can be Mayor. Maybe I can run for
Congress. Maybe I could be President." In that moment, possibility
is born.

I want a generation of Filipino boys and girls to see Barack Obama and
know that in America, anything is possible - with faith, hard work,
and determination, they can achieve anything in this land of
opportunity. That, after all, is the American dream of our lolos and
lolas. Stand with me today and let it be the commitment we make to
the generation of Filipino Americans who follow us.

No doubt, there will be some who say it's too hard. They will say
that Barack Obama and our movement for change just can't win. But I'm
here to tell you: kaya natin, yes we can!

For generations, that's what we Pinoys have taught this nation. KAYA NATIN!

When we were told that Filipino immigrants could never be at home in
these United States, we said kaya natin.

During WWII, when America was at war and soldiers were needed, our
brave Filipino veterans said kaya natin.

*When farmworkers were told they could not organize, union leaders joined
the Filipino labor leaders
and said kaya natin.*

When this country could not find enough doctors and nurses, the
Filipino community stepped up and said kaya natin.

As our families struggle with the longest immigration backlogs and
living in this frail economy, Barack Obama joins with the Filipino
community to say kaya natin.

So, we cannot wake up on November 5th wishing we had done more and we
can't afford to let someone else decide for us. We all know that this
is going to be a very close race. A handful of votes may decide the
election. Those handful of votes could be yours.

Change doesn't come by hoping for it. It doesn't come by wishing for
it. We have to organize for it, fight for it, register for it and
vote for it. Change happens when we say, with great pride in our
community and love for our country, kaya natin!

Maraming salamat po.

Subject: We Raised $1 Million to Defeat Obama
Reply-To: newsmax@reply.newsmax.com




Dear Newsmax Reader:

Our sponsor today, the National Republican Trust PAC has some urgent information and news for you. Political expert Dick Morris has praised this group and said it could have a big impact on Election Day. Please read their urgent message.

We Raised $1 Million in Emergency Effort to Stop Obama

We can make a huge difference.

You can help us.

Message from The National Republican Trust PAC
From Scott Wheeler
Executive Director


Dear Newsmax Reader:

We did it!

Our goal two weeks ago when we decided to launch our emergency effort to stop Barack Obama was to raise $1 million online.

As of today — and with your generous help — we hit that mark!

With the incredible support, we have been bombarding Ohio and now Florida with ads attacking Obama for his radical agenda.

Polls in Ohio show big movement for John McCain and the latest Florida polls show that race is tightening there too.

You are helping to make a difference. Your donation dollars are going to buy lots of ads.

I want you to know the National Republican Trust doesn't spend your money on fancy offices and high priced consultants.

Almost all of our net dollars raised — after marketing costs — are going directly into our ad war against Obama.

That's just one of the reasons we have earned the praised of pro-McCain strategists. Fox News analyst Dick Morris has praised us and said we can have a huge effect on Election day.

We want to have that effect.

We want to broaden our ad campaign to three more battleground states in just days.

Our goal now is to raise another $1 million in the next 7 days.

We can do it with your help.

To help us accomplish this goal just Go Here Now!

Just Days to Election Day — Obama Can Be Stopped

We have just days to go before Election Day . . . time is running short for us to avert a major disaster for our country. That disaster’s name is President Barack Obama.

But this disaster can be averted. I’m confident about this — even though the slanted media are overstating Obama’s inevitability.

But the numbers don’t lie.

Several polls out this week show the race is so close it's a dead heat!

Despite the full-court press to destroy McCain and Sarah Palin, Katie Couric’s antics against her, and a daily onslaught of media spin . . . McCain is still within striking distance.

The stakes have never been higher for the future of the country.

We either patriotically turn the country over to a man who has proudly served his nation in war time and peace — or we face electing a man who has a checkered past, a man who has counted domestic terrorists among his friends, and a man who spent 15 years in a church where his pastor regularly damned and condemned the United States.

Barack Obama is not simply a risky choice as our next president — He is a dangerous one.

This is why I have taken the helm here at the National Republican Trust Political Action Committee.

Here at the National Republican Trust, we understand our mission. It’s simple. It will also drive the left-wing media nuts.

Here’s the plan: We will tell the American people the truth about Barack Obama!

Every time John McCain or Sarah Palin tries to tell the truth about Obama, they are painted as mean-spirited and negative.

We here at the National Republican Trust can do the job McCain and Palin can’t.

But we need your help. Time is urgent — it’s crunch time.

You Can Help Us — Donate Today by Going Here Now

In the closing weeks of this election, Obama is trying to remake himself as a moderate to win over lower-income, white, Democratic and independent voters.

He wants to hide the facts about his record. He is the most extreme liberal ever to be nominated by a major party.

We all know his 100 percent liberal rating in Congress, his support for the TOTAL gun ban in Washington, D.C., his opposition to protecting babies born alive, and his support for tax increases.

But there is one issue almost all Americans agree on: Illegal aliens should not be given free Social Security benefits, Medicaid and driver’s licenses.

Worse there are 12 million illegal aliens in the U.S. and Obama wants them all to get amnesty.

This massive influx of new citizens demanding more government benefits will bankrupt the United States!

We need to inform millions of Americans about this man and his risky judgment.

We are already airing our new TV ads exposing Obama’s support for Social Security, driver’s licenses and free benefits for for illegals.

But we need your help. We’re already finalizing our ad budget in key swing states. The more you can donate to us today, the more we can spend in the coming days.

And don’t forget, you can donate a maximum of $5,000. Your spouse can also make a $5,000 donation.

With $5,000 we can saturate a whole city/market in a key swing state for one whole night.

But even $1,000 helps us. With $1,000 we can run 10 TV ads in a key market.

Whatever you can give, $500, $250 or any amount, can make a huge difference.

We at the National Republican Trust PAC appreciate your support and love of our country.

We will not fail you. Too much is at stake.

Help Expose Obama's Radical Plan — Go Here Now

Thank you again for making our effort possible.

Yours for America,

Scott Wheeler
Executive Director

P.S. The latest press reports indicate that if McCain were to hold Ohio and Florida, and win just Virginia or Pennsylvania, he will defeat Barack Obama. This isn't a dream — it can happen. We need your help, please Donate Here Now or call our special toll free donation line at 1-866-957-1467

Casting Light on the Shadows

As Italy fell to the Allies, and Hitler moved to crush the uprising in the Warsaw Ghetto, Ian Kershaw was born in Oldham, a mill town not far from the "cottonopolis" of Manchester, England. His father was a mechanic; his mother a worker in the cotton mills. But the Depression had taken a toll, and his father was unemployed, playing saxophone in a dance band as the war raged, trying to maintain what Kershaw remembers as "an extremely happy" if bookless house. By the '50s, his father had opened a small grocery shop, which he ran until his death in 1969.

Kershaw never imagined he would be a writer. In his early teens he flirted with the notion of sports journalism but decided impulsively on academics and began to develop, "rather late in my school years," a strong and abiding interest in history.

Schooled at St. Bede's, Liverpool University and, later, Oxford, he thought he'd be a medievalist, but by his 20s he had changed course. Working closely with West German historian Martin Broszat on his "Bavaria Project," Kershaw began studying the cult of Hitler. The result was a seminal work, "The 'Hitler Myth': Image and Reality in the Third Reich."

Kershaw, now 65 and retired from the department of modern history at Sheffield University, is widely regarded as the world's leading expert on Adolf Hitler. His books include: "Hitler: A Profile in Power"; "Fateful Choices"; and his most recent, just out this summer, "Hitler, the Germans, and the Final Solution." Six years ago, the Queen awarded him a knighthood for his steady and numerous "services to history."

"I have never thought of myself as having a 'writing career,'" he says. He considers himself first and foremost a university professor. But insofar as writing has become the focus of his work, his big break was unquestionably the appearance of his two-volume biography: "Hitler: Hubris" and "Hitler: Nemesis."

When asked what he has learned from his immersion in Nazism, he replies that "the Third Reich shows in vivid form our terrible capacity for evil. But it is important to temper this pessimistic view of human nature with our immense capacity for good. Humanity has -- and has had throughout history -- a Janus face."

SOME OF IT WAS FUN: Working with RFK and LBJ
Nicholas deB. Katzenbach
Norton
ISBN 978 0 393 06725 5
320 pages
$27.95
Reviewed by Jonathan Yardley
The photograph on the cover of Nicholas Katzenbach's splendid memoir shows the author, then 41 years old, wearily wiping his brow with a handkerchief. Tall, balding, correctly attired in a standard-issue Brooks Brothers suit, Katzenbach stands alone on the front of "Some of It Was Fun," but readers of a certain age will immediately know why he was wiping his brow -- it was June 1963 in Alabama, and the weather was scorching -- and what he was doing: As deputy attorney general of the United States, he was trying to enroll two African-American students in the University of Alabama, while a few feet away the state's governor, George Wallace, was making the "stand in the schoolhouse door" that had been central to his gubernatorial campaign in 1962.

It was one of the signal events of the civil-rights struggle -- Vivian Malone and James Hood quickly were registered at the university without incident or resistance -- and it cemented Katzenbach's reputation as a calm, dedicated, resourceful and occasionally witty champion of black rights. He had earned his stripes the previous year at the University of Mississippi, where the enrollment of James Meredith had been accompanied by violence that was subdued only after President Kennedy sent in federal troops, a decision that Katzenbach now sees as "an essential foundation to the successful integration that eventually took place throughout the South," though at the time "it seemed a failure in virtually every respect." It was a surpassingly stressful time in which the Department of Justice under Robert F. Kennedy played a heroic role. "Some of It Was Fun" brings it all back with an immediacy that I find haunting, bracing and ultimately heartbreaking, because nothing else that I have read conveys so vividly and intimately just what we lost with Bobby Kennedy's assassination in 1968.

Katzenbach had never met either Kennedy before signing on with the new administration in 1961, and like many other lawyers he had doubts about the appointment of John F. Kennedy's 35-year-old brother as the nation's highest law-enforcement officer. But he had a strong urge for public service and got in touch with Byron White, "a friend from my student days at Yale Law, (who) was named deputy attorney general." He met with Bobby Kennedy, whom "I could not help liking," quickly was appointed assistant attorney general heading the Office of Legal Counsel, the "most important duty" of which "was to give legal advice to the attorney general."

The team that Kennedy was assembling at Justice was extraordinary and so, Katzenbach quickly came to understand, was Kennedy himself. "His pride was in the department he ran, the people who surrounded him, and service to his brother," and he was as aware of his shortcomings as any of his critics, which made him all the more determined to overcome them. One of the things he did was to "create his own mini crime commission, of which he was the chairman and leader," which brought together people from throughout the government at meetings that Katzenbach occasionally attended:

"Bobby was clearly the leader, and not simply because he was attorney general. He impressed the group with his factual knowledge, and he encouraged free-flowing discussion and differing views. He was quick to appreciate suggestions, to praise efforts, to push for more without being critical. You could sense that this varied group was prepared to follow him and wanted desperately to please him. ... What Bobby was able to do was to communicate his own enthusiasm and energy to others, to make them feel that they were members of a team and that what they were doing was important. ... He saw law for what it is -- a tool to implement policy, a part of the political system through which hopes and aspirations can be realized. ... He almost always tended to identify with the underdog, with the poor, the weak, the disenfranchised, and in a sense he saw law as the road to justice. I had thought of Bobby as a tough political pragmatist -- and indeed he could be. But more and more I saw a young idealist struggling with the realities of a difficult world."

In the second year of Kennedy's presidency, Byron White was appointed to the Supreme Court, and Katzenbach succeeded him as deputy attorney general, which imposed "a big administrative responsibility" on him that he didn't especially enjoy, but which also made him "alter ego to the AG, so I often had the choice of deciding matters or discussing them further" with Kennedy, a position from which he was able to observe Kennedy often and with considerable intimacy. He remembers "with both sentiment and admiration" the annual "party for underprivileged children at Christmastime in the courtyard of the Justice Department" that Kennedy had instituted. He also remembers the funeral service for Kennedy at St. Patrick's Cathedral: "Tears were streaming down my face, but the tears made me feel at one with the others in the church. Bobby had that effect on people, and I think the country suffered a loss the magnitude of which may never be fully appreciated."

By then Katzenbach had been in the service of Lyndon Johnson for more than three years -- he was named attorney general in 1965, after Kennedy left to run for the Senate in New York, and then became undersecretary of state in 1966 -- and had come to admire and respect the man for whom RFK felt little except loathing. "In many respects I was as different from LBJ in background as Bobby had been," he writes, " -- thoroughly eastern, educated at elite institutions, with a mixture of idealism and pragmatism. LBJ was poorly educated in the formal sense; very Texan in his demeanor, his accent, his storytelling; and extremely intelligent. His almost rough exterior, tall with enormous hands and big facial features, made it difficult for people easily to see the first-rate mind he possessed. He understood government better than anyone else I have ever met. Part of this was his experience as a legislator and part of it was an extraordinary innate ability with people."

There's a wonderfully Johnsonian scene in which George Wallace was summoned to the White House to discuss anti-civil-rights violence in Alabama. "After some small talk," Katzenbach reports, "the president began an absolutely virtuoso performance, flattering Wallace, then confronting him, pretending to seek his advice, then giving him hell. ... At times he was harsh and demanding, at others flattering and cajoling. ... It was like a violin concert by a virtuoso, with every note perfection. At the end, Wallace declined to meet with the press and left quietly and inconspicuously through a side door."

Once Katzenbach moved to State -- the move, which some took as a demotion, actually was made at his own request, as by 1966 "we seemed to be just marking time" at Justice -- he was sucked into the maelstrom of Vietnam: "Vietnam, Vietnam, Vietnam -- it got in the way of everything: LBJ's Great Society programs, our African initiatives, the Middle East, everything. The protests were increasing, dissent in Congress was more serious, and there simply were not any good answers." Johnson "wanted me to make a priority of exploring a negotiated peace in Vietnam along every avenue possible," but he came up against the secretary of state, Dean Rusk, and Walt Rostow in the White House, and also against Johnson himself: "LBJ desperately wanted to get out of Vietnam but was unwilling to just cut and run."

Even before Robert Kennedy's assassination, Katzenbach "had made up my mind ... to leave government at the end of President Johnson's term, irrespective of the election results." He was tired, short on money, in need of a change. He stayed on loyally to the end, helping with the transition to the Nixon State Department, then went to IBM as vice president and general counsel. Now in his mid-80s, he lives in retirement in Princeton but remains active in public service and looks back on his years in Washington with "satisfaction from the progress we made on race and ... sadness from the failure to end the venture in Vietnam, with so many unnecessary deaths long before it eventually collapsed." He also recalls those years as "a time of hope, of shared aspirations for a better America" in which members of both parties worked in a genuinely bipartisan spirit "to face up to our problems." That is reason enough for "Some of It Was Fun" to be required reading in Washington today.
