Update from Julius Shemang in Kaduna State Nigeria

Dear Leroy and Poor Magazine,
 
Greeting from Kaduna State Nigeria.
 
This is to share with you some pictures of the newly inaugurated Board Members of the Kaduna State Rehabilitation Board headquarter on the 5th August 2016.
 
I was opted into the Board as Member. This, I believe will be another platform for us to further press home our demand for the passage of the disability bill with commission.
 

Black Disabled Chicagoans Goes Deep Into The DOJ Hearing & Police Brutality

 This is Leroy Moore and I'm interviewing today a couple of activists, disabled activists from Chicago. We're gonna talk about the recent DOJ hearing in Chicago on police brutality. So you guys, introduce yourself and introduce your work.

My ovary???

“The fibroid shrunk one centimeter,” my gynecologist said. I stopped at Clinica de la Raza, because I had an appointment that day for a follow up on an ultrasound that was performed prior to my surgery. My gynecologist told me I had a cyst in my left ovary, we just don’t know where or what size.

Yes, It Goes Deeper Than Training, Police Shooting Arnaldo Rios Soto Interview with Matthew Dietz, Attorney for the Family of Arnaldo Rios Soto

I watched the police shoot another black man, while aiming at an autistic man of color. You’ve probably seen it on Google. I watched it as a Black disabled activist that has reported on police brutality cases since the late 80’s. I watched them shoot Charles Kinsey as he tried to calm down Arnaldo Eliud Rios Soto as he held a small toy truck in his hands. The neighbors assumed the toy truck was a gun and called the police. The police came. Shoot the black social worker on the scene, and said they meant to hit the autistic man with the toy.

 

Autistic Teenagers & Young Adults In Hotter Than July: Police Brutality

Stevie Wonder’s title of his September 28th, 1980 album, Hotter Than July can describe what teenagers & young adults with autism are feeling this year. Although we celebrated the 26th birthday of the Americans with Disabilities Act; it’s been very hot for teens & young adults with autism in cities all over the US not because of the Summer sun but because of police shootings/brutality from Miami, FL to Chicago, ILL to San Francisco & Burbank, CA against them.

THC and the city

Sometime last year THC (Tenderloin Housing Clinic) started housing homeless people in privately owned hotels by subletting rooms in them through the navigation center.

Obviously most of these clients had some situation that landed on the street. Anything from lack of finances to mental illness and/or substance abuse.

Government & Disability Activism In Nigeria 


Leroy Moore:   Thank you Julius Shemang for agreeing to be interview.  Now I want to go back in time and can you give us brief historical roots of Nigeria from the time of independence from United Kingdom to now.

 

Bring Back Esker-D

About a year and a half ago I lost the best healthcare provider I ever had in my life [The creator notwithstanding!]

She not only provided me with everything necessary that she could for my well being , she actually listened to me and gave me feed back if I asked for it.

She always formed her advise like a suggestion and asked me if  would be willing to try something without making demands.

I always felt loved and cared for under her care.

Boy have things changed!
