Coronavirus y la ayuda financiera del Centro Comunal

AYUDA FINANCIERA: El Centro acaba de recibir fondos de United Way of Monroe County. Esa organización recibió muchas donaciones para ayudar a la comunidad durante la pandemia y ha otorgado esos fondos a distintas organizaciones comunitarias.
Para pedir ayuda financiera del Centro Comunal póngase en contacto con Juanita al 812-272-9184 o elcentrocomunal@gmail.com o con Josefa al 812-360-9924 o lucej@bloomington.in.gov.

Hay que tener detalles acerca de cada bill o factura que necesita pagar. Por ejemplo, si es de Duke Energy (la luz) hay que tener el nombre del residente que tiene la cuenta, la dirección y el número de la cuenta (o mandarle una foto del bill o factura a Juanita o a Josefa en un texto). Si se necesita pagar la renta o la hipoteca, hay que tener los detalles acerca del nombre del inquilino o dueño y su dirección, el nombre de la compañía, el número de la cuenta y la información de contacto de la compañía. Con esta información El Centro puede pagar lo que se debe directamente a la compañía.

Cada individuo o cada familia que solicite esta ayuda financiera puede recibirla una vez al mes por un máximo de 3 meses solamente (o menos si se acaban los fondos antes).

Bloomington Immigration lawyer sets up practice in Dubois County

HUNTINGBURG — Immigration lawyer Christine Popp travels from Bloomington to Dubois County to help immigrants with legal matters.

She has an office on Fourth Street in Huntingburg, and currently comes for appointments. She also takes calls and emails from her clients.

“It’s a very uncertain time right now with immigration,” she said, “so this is a really pressing need. I didn’t think at first of actually opening this office. But as time went on, the more I thought about it, it just seemed like a really good fit for me.”

County council forwards request for information on local ICE policies to Monroe County’s sheriff

In the councilors, IJTF found a group that appeared mostly supportive of their view that the county sheriff should not be helping ICE to identify and apprehend people who are suspected of a possible civil infraction. That’s the category of legal violation to which immigration violations belong, Christie Popp, a local immigration attorney with IJTF, told the council.

ICE out of MoCo

On January 25, 2017, President Trump’s Executive Order 13768 broadened “interior enforcement” priorities to target ALL undocumented immigrants for deportation regardless of their individual circumstances. In the three years since, this massive expansion has devastated immigrant families and communities around the US—including right here in Indiana’s Monroe County. MoCo Sheriff Brad Swain voluntarily collaborates with ICE (Immigration Customs and Enforcement) to detain our neighbors and friends. These detentions are unnecessary, unconstitutional, and immoral. We need to stop them NOW.

YOU Can Get ICE Out of MoCo:

  1. WRITE your County Commissioners and County Council Representatives. Use the sample letter and contact information below. NOW is the time.
  2. Broadcast #iceoutofmoco and #IceOutofMoCo on all your social media accounts. Spread the word NOW.

When Facts Don’t Matter: How to Communicate More Effectively about Immigration’s Costs and Benefits

At a time when people have more information at their fingertips than ever, it feels as though it has become equally easy to share it widely or to ignore, discount, and discredit it. Several factors have contributed to this state of affairs. New technologies have given a platform to a wider range of voices, but this has also meant that unvetted information and politically motivated “fake news” find their way more easily into the bloodstream of public debate. Human nature also shapes how people consume and recall information, making them more likely to resist information that contradicts their existing beliefs and personal experiences.

2019 The Year of the Farmers’ Market Controversy

This fall, the Purple Shirt Brigade handed out postcards at the Farmers’ Market for people to write about how white supremacy in the market makes them feel. The cards would be sent to Mayor John Hamilton. This card was signed by ‘Peter E Diezel.’ In April, the Chicago Sun-Times website reported an Indiana man identified as Peter Diezel was associated with Identity Evropa and posted tweets defending Adolf Hitler. | Courtesy photo

Looking back, the antiracist and antifascist activists who have worked to air this issue have been stunningly successful. Besides the City of Bloomington, other entities have held multiple community forums to wrestle with it. Countless exchanges among area residents have taken place online and offline, in the open and behind closed doors. Local media — Indiana Public Media, Indiana Daily Student, WFHB, The Bloomingtonian, B Square Beacon, The Herald-Times — have followed this upheaval. It has even appeared on the national radar, ranging from the progressive left (The Nation) to the extreme right (National Vanguard) to the middle-of-the-road (Newsweek) — including the front page of the New York Times, arguably the most influential mainstream U.S. newspaper.

Scattered across the conversations and coverage are the experiences of people of color. What would it mean to place their perspectives at the center of our reflection and think outward from there? To acknowledge them seriously and meaningfully? Might we come away with a fresh understanding of the stakes involved that could prove useful for moving the city past this deadlock?
