Urban Dialogues: Stop & Frisk and Mass Incarceration presented by Metropolitan College of New York Bronx Extension Center

Thursday, November 14th – Panel Discussion to Address Local Community’s Concerns and How Policy Will Be Handled in Mayor-Elect Bill de Blasio’s Administration 

WHAT: The Bronx Extension Center of Metropolitan College of New York (MCNY) will host a fall Urban Dialogue panel discussion on New York City Police Department’s controversial stop-and-frisk policy and mass incarceration. The stop-and-frisk policy disproportionately affects minorities and was ruled unconstitutional by a federal judge, although an appeals court blocked that order. Still, it doesn’t seem to be going away any time soon.  MCNY’s Urban Dialogue series is part of the College’s mission to advance the cause of social justice and Purpose-Centered Education.   

“Urban Dialogues”, offered by the College’s School for Public Affairs and Administration, provides a forum in which scholars, legislators, policy makers, students, and citizens can exchange ideas and discuss issues and trends that affect New York City and other urban centers across the nation.

 

WHO: Panelists include: Darius Charney, senior staff attorney in the Racial Justice/Government Misconduct Docket, currently lead counsel on Floyd v. City of New York, a federal civil rights class action lawsuit challenging the New York Police Department’s unconstitutional and racially discriminatory stop-and-frisk practices; Glenn E. Martin, Vice President of Public Affairs and Director of the David Rothenberg Center for Public Policy at The Fortune Society, responsible for leading the agency’s communications work as well as developing and advancing Fortune’s national and local criminal justice policy advocacy agenda; and Adeola Ogunkeyede, Esq., supervising attorney, Bronx Defenders. The panel will be moderated by Dean Humphrey Crookendale, Dean of the School of Public Affairs for Metropolitan College of New York.

Save the Date 11/12/13 — MCNY MPA presents: Urban Dialogues — Believing in Our Children: How Can We Make Education Work for All Kids?

Dean Humphrey Crookendale

 

Dean Humphrey Crookendale  invites you to the Tuesday, November 12, 2013 session of “Urban Dialogues”,  featuring Mr. Kevin P. Chavous.

Mr. Chavous is a founding board member and executive counsel for the American Federation for Children and the Alliance for School Choice, a noted author, and national education reform leader. As a former member of the Council of the District of Columbia and Chair of the Council’s Education Committee, Mr. Chavous was at the forefront of promoting change within the District public school system. His efforts led to more than $500 million new dollars being made available to educate children in D.C.

Kevin Chavous

A leading national advocate for educational choice, Mr. Chavous helped to shepherd the charter school movement into the nation’s capital.  Under his education committee chairmanship, the D.C. charter school movement became the most prolific charter school jurisdiction in the country, with now nearly half of D.C.’s public school children attending charter schools. In addition, Mr. Chavous assisted in shaping the District’s three-sector education partnership with the federal government. That partnership led to $60 million in annual federal dollars for D.C.’s public schools, public charter schools, and the first federal scholarship program which has provided access to private schools for nearly 6,000 children from low-income families since inception.

In recent years, Mr. Chavous has worked to advance charter school and parental choice programs in a host of jurisdictions around the country, most notably in Louisiana and Tennessee.  A prolific writer and much sought after speaker, Mr. Chavous’ opinion editorials have appeared in many major newspapers and he has given education reform speeches in nearly every state.

Kevin P. Chavous has recently formed Serving Our Children, Inc. (SOC). This foundation’s mission is to provide limited monetary assistance to teachers for special classroom needs. Mr. Chavous strongly believes that America’s teachers should have better access to resources without having to navigate through most school bureaucracies.

Mr. Chavous is also an accomplished author, having published Serving Our Children: Charter Schools and the Reform of American Public Education, and his most recent book, Voices of Determination: Children that Defy the Odds.  Mr. Chavous is involved with many education reform groups and is the Board Chair for Democrats for Education Reform (DFER) and former Board Chair for the Black Alliance for Educational Options (BAEO).

Mr. Chavous was born and raised in Indianapolis, Indiana and graduated from Wabash College, where he was an NCAA All-American in basketball. He also graduated from the Howard University School of Law, where he was president of his graduating class. He lives in Washington, D.C.

Mr. Chavous will address “Believing in Our Children: How Can We Make Education Work  for All Kids?” in his remarks to MCNY’s community.

This session of “Urban Dialogues” will be held from 6 p.m. to 7:40 p.m.  in the college’s conference center.  Seating is limited, and should be reserved as soon as possible at

KEYNOTE Address to be given by Noted Author, PR Expert, and Mental Health Advocate Terrie M. Williams

Councilwoman Maria del Carmen Arroyo to Be Honored

NEW YORK, NY – JUNE 4, 2013 — On June 8, 2013, Metropolitan College of New York (MCNY) will host its 36th

Terrie M. Williams
Keynote Speaker

annual commencement ceremony at 4:00 PM at the Jacob Javits Convention Center. This year, the college will present degrees to more than 500 undergraduate and graduate students. Noted author, entrepreneur and mental health advocate Terrie Williams will deliver the keynote address. Most recently, Williams was named to the 2013 theGrio 100 list for her trailblazing efforts in bringing national attention to the issue of depression in the African American community. It was her personal story in Essencemagazine in 2005 that catapulted the discussion into the news.

Carmen del Arroyo
Bronx, District 17

 

An honorary Doctorate of Humane Letters will be conferred upon Councilwoman Carmen del Arroyo for her accomplishments as an agent of change in social services.

“This is always a very special day for MCNY faculty and students,” said Dr. Vinton Thompson, president of Metropolitan College of New York. “Our graduates have earned the tools they need to become more productive leaders in the community, and our keynote speaker and honoree will share their visions of strength, courage and social service. They are true leaders our graduates can proudly emulate.”

 

This year’s keynote speaker and 2004 MCNY commencement honoree, Terrie Williams, is one of Ebony magazine’s “Power 150 for Activism” and Woman’s Day magazine’s “50 Women on a Mission to Change the World.” An advocate for change and empowerment, Williams has used her influence and communications expertise for more than 30 years to educate and engage audiences in social causes. Williams launched The Terrie Williams Agency, a PR firm, in 1988 with superstar Eddie Murphy and the late jazz legend Miles Davis as her first clients, and has continued to represent some of the biggest personalities and enterprises in entertainment, sports, business and politics.

Terrie’s latest book, the critically acclaimed Black Pain: It Just Looks Like We’re Not Hurting, is credited with starting an unprecedented national dialogue that recounts her personal struggles with depression and the impact the stigma of mental illnesses has, particularly on the African American community. Her initiative has led to a national mental health advocacy campaign called “Sharing Ourselves . . . Healing Starts with Us” in collaboration with the Ad Council’s and SAMHSA’s campaign, “Mental Health Recovery.” To date, this campaign has garnered $2.5 million in donated national advertising space and 11 million media impressions to significantly heighten the awareness and importance of mental and emotional health.

Most recently, Williams spoke at the United Nations’ World Mental Health Day, where she provided a global perspective on mental health and depression.

Councilwoman Carmen del Arroyo pursued higher education goals after receiving her GED in 1978. While working as a receptionist she realized that without a college education, she would not be able to make a difference in the system of delivering social services. She went on to graduate from Hostos Community College in 1989 with an Associate of Arts degree, from Lehman College in 1991 with a Bachelor of Health Service Administration cum laude, and from New York University’s Robert Wagner Graduate School of Public Service in 1994 with a Master of Public Administration.

Over her twenty-eight-year career, she served as Executive Director at Segundo Ruiz Belvis Diagnostic and Treatment Center (where she began as a receptionist), as Senior Director of Operations for Narco Freedom, Inc., and as volunteer Executive Director of the South Bronx Community Corporation. All three organizations provide much-needed services to residents of the South Bronx community where she was raised. She is a New York City Councilmember representing District 17 in the Bronx.
