End Homelessness The Humanion Campaign

Home is not where the heart is
Nor is it where things are kept 
A home is what skins the soul
Without it a human is non-person
Incomplete suffers slowly dying

END Homelessness


 
 

 


|| April 06: 2018 || ά. The Humanion was first published on September 24, 2015 and has been run, since that day, on a complete voluntary basis without any 'formal' or 'constituted' manner or form and, it was run on as a Human Enterprise, which is an idea of Humanics, in which, ownership is replaced by belongingship and, thus, in a Humanical Society, no one owns anything but everyone belongs to the whole as the whole belongs to everyone lawfully and equally and, it neither believes in nor makes money but human utilities, needs, aspirations, creativity, imagination and dreams are served without money, where everyone works and creates for all others as all others create and work for all others, thus, bringing in meaning and purpose to life along with it come natural justice, equality and liberty, that establish a true civilisation within the Rule of Law. And in one word, this system of human affairs management is called, Humanics and a society that runs itself in humanics is called a humanical society. Today, we have begun the process of 'constituting' this Human Enterprise, which does not exist in the current system, but the next closest thing to it, that exists in the UK Law is Social Enterprise. Therefore, today, Friday, April 06, 2018, we are beginning Regine Humanics Foundation, that is the 'Agency', that will lead, run, manage and develop everything, that The Humanion has been trying to do.

Regine Humanics Foundation is established by the Thinker, Author, Poet, Novelist, Playwright, Editor of The Humanion, Festival Director of London Poetry Festival and a Humanicsxian: hu: maa: neek: tian: One, that believes in, lives and exists by Humanics, Mr Munayem Mayenin, of London, England, United Kingdom. Mr Mayenin says, ''Humanics is a vision; people, may, call it, utopia, we, call it our Humanicsovicsopia; Humanics. Humanics is our philosophy, our faith, our conviction, our resolution, our way of existing, thinking, being and doing: to seek and try to do so in the determination that all we must do and be is to exist to advance the human condition. People, readers and agencies and organisations, from all across England, Scotland, Northern Ireland, Wales and the whole of the United Kingdom and Australasia, Africa, Asia, Europe, North and South America, from all walks and strata of life, have supported our endeavours, supported The Humanion and The Humanion Team, who volunteered their time to run things, since the beginning of The Humanion and long before that, when other things, that are now part of The Foundation, were developing. Nothing has changed in terms of the nature and value of what we have been seeking to do.''

''But the founding of The Foundation brings it all in a solid foundation so that we can keep on building this 'vision' so that it keeps on going regardless of who come to take the vision-mission of The Foundation forward. The Foundation runs along with time and along with the flowing humanity. This is the dream, this is the vision, this the hope in founding this Foundation. And, in this, we hope and invite all our readers, supporters, well wishers and all agencies and organisations to support our endeavours to build something, a Human Enterprise, which we are in the process of registering as a Social Enterprise, as a Community Interest Company, working for the common good of the one and common humanity. No one makes or takes profit out of The Foundation, which now runs The Humanion and everything else, that is part of it. The Foundation, once registered, will have an Asset Lock, which means that in any event, should The Foundation dissolve itself, all its existing assets shall go to a similar Social Enterprise. Therefore, we invite everyone to support The Foundation, support The Humanion in whatever way they can. And, there are endless number of ways people and organisations can support The Foundation and The Humanion.'' ::: ω.

To Seek: To Do: To Change: To Make Better: A Courtney Anderson an Assistant Professor of Law: Atlanta Listen When A Voice Calls You Towards the Light of Equity: Where the Major Part of the Whole Bleeds Away There Can Be No Dream But Nightmare: Rise Towards the American Dream Away From the American Nightmare of Rampant Poverty Inequality and Contemptuous Disregard to Human Misery and Suffering Imposed on a Great Majority of People

 

|| November 25: 2017: Georgia State University News || ά. Assistant Professor Courtney Anderson champions housing issues to break cycle of poverty. Community can be a matter of life and death. South Seattle knows this hard fact. Residents there rise each morning in a grinding urban neighbourhood with high unemployment and substandard housing. Just one mile distant, over a body of water, that, might, as well, be an ocean, lies Mercer Island, one of the 100 wealthiest ZIP codes in the United States. A baby born today on Mercer Island can expect to live 10 years longer than a baby born in South Seattle.

Life expectancy isn’t the only discrepancy between wealthy communities and poor ones. Low-income areas typically see higher rates of crime, disease, mental illness and drug addiction. That’s true in Seattle. It’s true in Los Angeles, Detroit, Baltimore, Miami. It’s true in Atlanta. In South Atlanta, Thomasville Heights Elementary School and its surrounding neighbourhood share a ZIP code with a federal penitentiary. There’s no building boom in this blighted section of one of America’s fastest-growing cities. In fact, substandard housing across the street from 600-student Thomasville Heights is considered the leading cause of a shocking year-over-year turnover rate in classrooms there.

From one year to the next, 40 percent of the students at Thomasville Heights go away. Some families leave the housing complex after complaining of intolerable conditions, structural damage, dilapidation, infestations of snakes, rodents, insects. Others, who can’t find the means to pay rent move on because of eviction notices. What happens to kids in this unstable circumstance? And their community in the long run? Georgia State Law Assistant Professor Courtney Anderson has done her homework. “The concentration of housing for low-income families in impoverished neighbourhoods adversely affects educational attainment.” Ms Anderson said. “Ultimately, this, also, impacts the opportunity for poor children to break the cycle of poverty as adults.”

Substandard housing affects more than grades and graduations. People in shoddy dwellings more often suffer respiratory and cardiovascular troubles from smoke and indoor air pollution. They’re frequently exposed to high and low temperatures. Home injuries occur more often, floors or steps give way, roofs collapse, wiring shorts out. Sanitation problems can spread communicable diseases. More frequent diagnoses of allergies, asthma and mould-borne ailments add to woes.

Unravelling the knotted problems of housing, education and health takes a champion, someone willing to build awareness about problems in communities that often have no voice. Anderson has made it her cause.

Ms Anderson first grasped the link between housing and community health issues, when she served as a clinical fellow at Georgetown University Law Centre in 2012. “We worked very closely with low-income tenant organisations, who were attempting to purchase their buildings.” she said. “The need for health services, education and other social services was always prevalent.” Ms Anderson quickly realised that the needs of these clients stretched far beyond memos on legal letterhead or simple words of legal advice. That revelation shaped her teaching and research.

“We were our clients’ only advocates.” she said. “They told us how hard it was for them to access social services and education because of where they lived. We realised how many ancillary issues stemmed from the disparities in their communities … and we were the only ones, who could help.” Connecting the community dots, Ms Anderson began to actively research housing instability in low-income neighbourhoods.

“I work with sociologists, attorneys, educators and bankers to create a map of neighbourhood stressors near schools with high turnover rates.” she said. “Once we have that, we can better understand how educational attainment is disrupted by evictions, building code violations and mobility.”

Ms Anderson has published several notable papers exploring how events or conditions, that touch any part of housing, education or health in underserved neighbourhoods have a ripple effect in the other areas. Her titles describe the work: 'The Disparate Impact of Shuttered Schools' in the Journal of Gender, Social Policy and the Law in 2015, 'Affirmative Action for Affordable Housing' in Howard Law Journal in 2016, 'You Cannot Afford to Live Here' in Fordham Urban Law Journal this year.

Perhaps, most importantly, of all, Ms Anderson ventures out from the ivory tower of academia to hit the streets and she rides along with a posse. “Her students are challenged to understand, form an opinion and make an impact to curb health disparities and her work is shedding light on some of the health and housing disparities in Georgia.” said Ms Genevieve Razick. Each year loads her Law and Health Equity class onto a bus and tools them up Peachtree Road and through ritzy Buckhead.

The students admire Buckhead’s fine houses and jewelled lawns and glittering automobiles. Then, in jarring contrast, the student bus veers southward into grindingly poor Atlanta neighbourhoods. The houses there have shuttered windows and trash-strewn lawns and abandoned cars.

“It really opens the students’ eyes to a part of Atlanta they have never seen, despite the fact that it is five minutes away from the law school.” Ms Anderson said. “We go from wealthy neighbourhoods in North Atlanta to abject poverty that is not far from where they live and learn. The purpose is to give our law students context for how segregated cities can be and how 
human-made factors influence and cause this segregation.”

Newly enlightened, Ms Anderson’s students then are urged to bring their budding legal skills to bear in service to the challenged communities they’ve seen. Like many Georgia State Law students, a large number of these future lawyers have Atlanta roots or close community ties. It’s not uncommon for them to suddenly develop a passion for community efforts driven by various non-profits.

“The Atlanta Volunteers Lawyer Foundation, Sister Love and New Georgia Project have been great at identifying and assisting with the variety of issues, that affect low-income populations.” Ms Anderson said. “Our students offer hands-on, real-world help.”

Ms Genevieve Razick took Ms Anderson’s classes in Property Law, Law and Health Equity and Law and Social Welfare. Ms Razick now practices as an associate attorney at Arnall Golden Gregory, where she focuses on regulatory and transactional work for health care clients. “Professor Anderson is truly passionate about bringing topics covered in class to life for her students so they aren’t just reading another chapter in a textbook.” Ms Razick said.

“Her students are challenged to understand, form an opinion and make an impact to curb health disparities and her work is shedding light on some of the health and housing disparities in Georgia.” During her semester in Anderson’s Law and Health Equity class, Ms Razick supported Sister Love Inc, an organisation serving to eradicate the disproportionate impact of HIV and sexual oppression on women in the United States.

“My Georgia State team helped Sister Love conduct legal research on the frameworks surrounding sexual reproductive education in schools in Georgia.” Ms Razick said. “We looked at how access to sexual reproductive education could potentially impact the prevalence of HIV in a community.”

Ms Anderson’s students lend their legal expertise to other allies, too. Some support the work of Neighbourhood Planning Units, citizen advisory councils that research and develop zoning, land use and other planning recommendations designed to address health disparities and inequalities. Their recommendations go directly to Atlanta’s Mayor and City Council.

Other students have pitched in with the Atlanta Youth Count and Needs Assessment, a comprehensive survey of youth homelessness in the city. One of Ms Anderson’s students worked with Westside Atlanta Land Trust. That pairing resulted in a program proposal to train ex-criminal offenders in construction trades, that can help them land jobs renovating blighted homes in a depressed area at Vine City:English Avenue. Breakthrough thinking is badly needed in that area.

Mr Paul Bolster feels that efforts to cut through a Gordian Knot of problems to find solutions in housing, health and education policy depend on leadership, the path-breaking research and advocacy like Ms Anderson’s, but, also, political and legal leadership. “I believe it takes legislative or executive department leadership to give a focus to citizen advocacy.” Mr Bolster said.

“For any public policy change, there needs to be a legislative leader to make decisions and create partnerships, that will lead to legislation. The courts can provide a context for the legislation and often political cover for taking actions that may not be popular or may get lost in the din of public discussion. Leadership can make an issue a priority for research, public debate and ultimately legislative action.”

Mr Bolster does his part. He founded and serves as principle consultant for Support Housing LLC, an organisation assisting communities with plans to end homelessness. He co-develops supportive housing with service providers and organizes advocacy efforts focused on state and local policy issues. He founded the Georgia Supportive Housing Association, where he is its former executive director.

“Her research is important.” he said. “Connecting housing to health and education is critical to public investment in the housing.” Ms Anderson’s leadership in housing and health policy could possibly lead to big changes at Thomasville Heights Elementary School. In the past two years, students in her Property Law classes worked with Purpose Built Schools to explore the underlying causes of churn problems at the educational institution.

Students pulled eviction records and documentation on housing conditions. They cross-referenced demographics to identify and map the issues, that impact Thomasville students’ ability to attend school. Now, late this fall, Purpose Built Schools will hold a meeting to evaluate student recommendations based on that research and, possibly, adopt those ideas in coming years.

Quality housing and reduced student turnover in the neighbourhood that Thomasville Heights’ student body calls home could arrest the cycle of poverty in the area. In other words, two components of a true community, a stable, liveable home and a classroom, where familiar teachers and classmates show up reliably and faithfully, could, potentially, anchor the area and give it a chance at normal development. “Leadership can make an issue a priority for research, public debate and ultimately legislative action.” said Mr Paul Bolster.

A true sense of community remains a dream deferred, Ms Anderson feels, without secure, protective, sheltering places to live, schools to spark ideas and health to support hope. “We are far from the goal.” she said. “But awareness that there are these issues has definitely improved and there has been more of an interdisciplinary approach to addressing them. Housing agencies are now opining on education policies and vice versa.

Improving health equity will come with improving race relations and improvements in economic inequality.” she added. “I think the focus right now still needs to be on awareness and education, with local groups taking the lead on testing possible solutions that can be replicated so that there can be more buy-in when they are proven effective.”
