Women Legislators Harness Support for Haiti

Women Legislators Harness Support for Haiti

(WASHINGTON, DC) - Elected women in U.S. cities with large Haitian populations have united to launch the National Foundation for Women Legislators' (NFWL) Haiti Relief Task Force in light of the catastrophic earthquake that has decimated Haiti.

NFWL's leadership quickly mobilized to find ways to aid in the relief effort as reports of the large scale devastation began to roll in. Working with longtime partner Nourish America, legislators across the nation plan to harness Americans' desire to help.

The NFWL Haiti Relief Task Force, headed by Representative Yolly Roberson (Miami, FL), Representative Rosita Youngblood (Philadelphia, PA), Councilwoman Jannie Blackwell (Philadelphia, PA), Representative Helen Giddings (Dallas, TX) and Senator Ruth Hassell-Thompson (Bronx, NY), aims to streamline communications, identify swift and direct methods of delivery for needed supplies, and implement long-term strategies to ensure stability as Haiti rebuilds.

Members of the Task Force have been reaching out to corporations and organizations within their own communities requesting donations of much needed supplies. Representing communities with large Haitian populations, Roberson, Youngblood, Blackwell, and Hassell-Thompson have been reaching out to local organizations and churches that have close ties to Haiti as well as local hospitals that have been assisting in the relief effort, to identify delivery mechanisms other than relying solely on the U. S. military operation.

"Our government has really stepped up to the plate and is working around the clock to aid a neighboring nation as it faces a horrific tragedy," stated Robin Read, President and CEO of NFWL. "Realizing the great strain that has been placed on our Marines, our elected women have banned together to mobilize efforts locally with the hope of alleviating the strain on our government, breaking through some of the red tape, and getting supplies to the victims as quickly as possible."

Roberson, who represents North Miami Beach in Florida, will travel to Haiti on Monday to assist with relief efforts on the ground. She will stay in close communication with the NFWL Task Force and she will also follow the stream of donations arriving from her district closely to ensure all of the goods are quickly distributed.

Roberson is also coordinating a drop point for the delivery of donated goods secured by her colleagues on the NFWL Task Force.

The women elected officials serving on NFWL's Haiti Relief Task Force are working to bring government agencies, corporate leaders, and community activists together to identify and implement long-term strategies for projects that will rebuild a fallen nation, permanently. Such projects will center on schools, hospitals, and other facilities.

"Our elected women are only a cell phone conversation away at all times," stated Robin Read, NFWL's President and CEO. "Thanks to open and frequent lines of communication we are able to call on the organizations that we partner with all across the nation to support the needs of our legislators' constituents when crisis arise. Nourish America continuously answers that call from NFWL and our elected women."

NFWL and Nourish America already had a disaster relief plan in place as the two organizations coordinated relief efforts with elected women in Texas when Hurricane Ike devastated Houston last year and floods blanketed North Dakota this past spring.

About the National Foundation for Women Legislators, Inc. (NFWL)

Through annual educational and networking events, the National Foundation for Women Legislators supports elected women from all levels of governance.

I imagine a phone call or two to the women's offices would get an answer as to whether they're members of the NFWL or not - they would be proud of it, wouldn't they?

For any that are unfamiliar with the volunteer ministers, "Just Bill" spells things out nicely on his blog:

The Church of Scientology Loves Disasters

Quote
This really is the most disgusting thing I've seen recently about the Church of Scientology: Their reaction to the Haiti earthquake.

The actions of the Church of Scientology are dispicable, in the extreme.

The Church of Scientology provides no money towards the victims in Haiti.  None.  Not one penny.  The church supplies no food, no water, no medicine, no building materials, no personnel, no expertise, nothing for Haiti.

But they claim, in their press releases, that their Volunteer Ministers are "a major relief agency" helping in Haiti.  If they do nothing, how can they claim this?

John Travolta supplied an airplane, not the church.  Individual Scientologists volunteered to go using their own money.  As usual, the Church of Scientology did nothing.

Along with a few untrained Scientology "Volunteer Ministers", Travolta offered a lift to health-care workers from the Association of Haitian Physicians Abroad and from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.  Those other non-Scientology groups were sending trained medical personnel and the Scientologists were completely untrained.  And yet, in a most disgusting bit of lying, the Church of Scientology is actually claiming they sent the medical personnel!

As is usual, the Church of Scientology volunteers showed up at the disaster without food, without medicine, without supplies, without equipment, without shelter, without expertise -- so they are a burden on resources already stretched very, very thin.  As is usual, the Volunteer Ministers make the situation worse by requiring food and shelter that should be going to the victims!

But they have bright yellow t shirts that show up well for the Church of Scientology photographer!  Yes, while the Volunteer Ministers are useless to real relief agencies, they are very useful to the Church of Scientology's PR department.

But, as disgusting as all this is, the Church of Scientology's response to this disaster is much, much worse.

The Church of Scientology is officially urging all Scientologists to "help Haiti by giving to the IAS (International Association of Scientologists)".  Not to any legitimate relief agency.  No, Scientologists must help Haiti by "giving to the IAS".

And the IAS has not ever given a penny to any disaster relief effort.  The IAS will never give a penny to any disaster relief.  The money goes to David Miscavige.  Period.  Last I checked, David Miscavige wasn't in Haiti and didn't need any assistance.

Yes, the Church of Scientology is using the Haiti disaster to make money!  They are profiting on human suffering!

But wait, there is more!

Bridge Publications, the publisher of Scientology books, is urging Scientologists to buy Scientology books to "send to Haiti"!  Scientologists are not being urged to pay for food or water or medicine or shelter for Haiti.  No, they are being urged to pay for Scientology books to Haiti!

But get this:  Bridge Publications is charging full price for these donated books, meaning Bridge Publications is making full profit on all the books.  They are profiting on human suffering!

The scientologists have quite a machine going with internet promotions, not only for the VMs, but for narconon, CCHR, and probably all other aspects of their scam. 

They are hiring outside help:
