MHRMI Launches New OUR NAME IS MACEDONIA Campaign With Billboards Throughout Macedonia. END THE NAME NEGOTIATIONS NOW!




Billboards throughout Macedonia demanding an END to the anti-Macedonian name negotiations

WHO GAVE YOU THE RIGHT TO NEGOTIATE MY NAME AND IDENTITY? MHRMI's OUR NAME IS MACEDONIA campaign demands an end to the racist,anti-Macedonian name negotiations.

We call on those who support the most basic of human rights to join our call to end the anti-Macedonian name negotiations. NO other ethnic group would be forced to negotiate its name.”

— Bill Nicholov, President, Macedonian Human Rights Movement International

TORONTO, CANADA, September 22, 2017 / — Macedonian Human Rights Movement International has launched a new Our Name Is Macedonia campaign – demanding an immediate end to the racist, anti-Macedonian name negotiations – with billboards in Skopje, Bitola, Tetovo (see the pics below) and soon in additional cities throughout Macedonia, along with television & radio commercials, newspaper & online ads, press conferences and hundreds of thousands of flyers.

MHRMI calls on all Macedonians, and others who support the most basic of human rights, to join our call. We ask that Macedonian organizations issue statements in support of our campaign and pressure Macedonia to end the name negotiations NOW.

As our billboard asks, WHO GAVE YOU THE RIGHT TO NEGOTIATE MY NAME AND IDENTITY? UN Envoy Matthew Nimetz claims that the Macedonian identity is not being negotiated, yet we can see through the Bulgaria agreement, Law on Languages, public statements by Macedonian, American and European politicians that it is precisely Macedonia's NAME and IDENTITY that are being negotiated and this is a direct result of the name negotiations. MHRMI repeats that current citizens and politicians of a country do not have the right to negotiate an age-old ethnicity.

As Nimetz told MHRMI, "Off the record, if I were Macedonian, I would NOT negotiate my name." Nimetz and the US State Department both told MHRMI President, Bill Nicholov, that there would be absolutely NO consequences if Macedonia stopped negotiating its name and identity. Further, and despite their public statements, the US State Department said that there is no solution to the name dispute and the ONLY logical next step would be if Macedonia ENDS THE NEGOTIATIONS.

As MHRMI has repeatedly stated – the artificial name dispute is the overarching issue that is wreaking havoc in ALL aspects of life in Macedonia. Negotiating our name is precisely the reason that Macedonia is not in the EU and NATO. The reason that the West calls for Macedonia to change its name is BECAUSE Macedonia is negotiating its name. Our Name Is Macedonia. Our Identity Is Macedonian. END THE NAME NEGOTIATIONS NOW.


Macedonian Human Rights Movement International (MHRMI) has been active on human and national rights issues for Macedonians and other oppressed peoples since 1986. For more information: 1-416-850-7125,,,,,

Award-winning documentary coming to a cinema near you

This powerful documentary tells an important story that everyone needs to see.”

— Brigadier- General (Ret.) Carol Ann Fausone

NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, September 22, 2017 / —
“Delay, Deny, Hope You Die” will be coming to select cities in the U.S., starting on October 9.

This important documentary tells the story of American soldiers who returned from the battlefields of Iraq and Afghanistan with severe illnesses from chemical war. They are not the victims of ruthless enemy warfare, but of decisions made by their own military commanders.

These soldiers, afflicted with everything from respiratory diseases to rare cancers, were sickened by the smoke and ash swirling out of the “burn pits”, where both the military and private contractors incinerated mountains of trash. According to soldiers who served there, every type of waste was disposed of and burned, including batteries, appliances, vehicles, plastics, dead animals … even human body parts. Today, up to 100,000 soldiers are sick and dying.

The documentary is being distributed on a crowdfunding basis. Tickets MUST BE ORDERED IN ADVANCE to confirm each screening. For a complete list of planned screenings, please go to

  Executive Summary

The term “death care industry” refers to the array of providers of funeral and burial goods and services, such as funeral directors, cemeteries, and third-party sellers. The death care industry is currently undergoing a major transformation. Historically, it has been fragmented, with limited overlap among various segments of the funeral and burial industries. Funeral homes and funeral directors sold funeral merchandise and services. Cemeteries sold burial merchandise and services. Cemeteries and monument/memorial dealers sold monuments and memorials. A funeral home or cemetery generally arranged cremation services, and independent florists sold flowers. Today, such distinctions are diminishing. The industry is consolidating. Large chains are buying and managing locally owned funeral homes and cemeteries. Many nonprofit cemeteries are now owned by, managed by, or otherwise affiliated with for-profit chains.

Death care and funeral service market has increased at a significant CAGR during the period 2011-2015 and projections are made that the market would rise in the next five years i.e. 2016-2020 tremendously. Death care and funeral service market can be segmented on the basis of products into as-need and pre-need, of which, pre-need market exhibited greater increase as compared to as-need, driving the death care and funeral service market. The upsurge in the market was due to various factors such as rapid growth in urbanization, rising aging population along with the increasing awareness about various products and services provided by the organizations operating in the market.

The major growth drivers for the death care and funeral service market are: strong economic growth, rapid urbanization, increase in disposable income, steady population growth, aging population & increase in death rate and unmet demand for premium death care services and products. Despite the market is governed by various growth drivers, there are certain challenges faced by the market such as: injuries from manual tasks, embalming operations biological exposure, embalming operations chemical exposure & musculoskeletal hazards, embalming room ventilation & maintenance and unique hazards during cremation.

Thousands Rally at the United Nations to Denounce Rouhani, Call for a Free Iran

110000 Protests Against the Iranian Regime in 2017

Thousands of Iranian Americans gathered outside the UN Headquarters to denounce the presence of the Iranian regime’s president Hassan Rouhani at the UN

I see all these wonderful signs, but the one I like the best says ‘Free Iran'”

— HFAC RM Eliot Engel (D-NY)

NEW YORK, NY, USA, September 21, 2017 / —
New York, September 21, 2017—Thousands of Iranian Americans from all across the United States were joined by New York residents and faith community leaders outside the United Nations Headquarters to denounce the presence of the Iranian regime’s president Hassan Rouhani at the UN, condemn human rights violations and terrorism and call for a free Iran.

The rally was broadcast live into Iran by different satellite television channels, including the Iranian resistance’s affiliate networks, as well as on social media. The rally for regime change by the Iranian people resonated well with the call by millions of Iranians who seek an end to the theocracy. Over the past year, anti-government demonstrations, protest acts, and strikes expanded nationwide, highlighting the vulnerable state of the Iranian regime.

The rally speakers highlighted the need for a new U.S. policy on Iran: recognition of the rights of the Iranian people for democratic change.

House Foreign Affairs Committee Ranking Member, Eliot Engel (D-NY), told the jubilant crowd, “I see all these wonderful signs, but the one I like the best says ‘Free Iran,’” adding, “from within, change can come, because the Iranian people have always been able to do what’s right, and this terrible regime that strangles the Iranian people has got to end—and the sooner the better.”

Former senator Joe Lieberman, said, “when it comes to the cause of freedom in Iran the sun is shining brighter than ever before.” He said “Last year, there have been 11,000 protests throughout the country against the regime, against its corruption, against the exploitation of the economy by the IRGC, and against the denial of basic human and political rights.” Referring to the 1988 massacre of political prisoners in Iran, he added, “It’s time for a truth commission about what happened to those 30,000 human beings killed by the Iranian government…” He concluded, “by far the most organized and effective” opposition movement “is of course the People’s Mujahedeen Organization of Iran [MEK].”

Former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations John Bolton emphasized, “The motto should be that the regime will not celebrate its 40th anniversary in 2019… it’s very important that the United States declare as its official policy that the regime in Iran needs to change.”

“President Trump laid the ground work for that announcement in his speech to the General Assembly yesterday when he stressed that the prime victims of the regime in Tehran were the people of Iran themselves,” he added,

I Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, the president-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran, welcomed the remarks by the U.S. President for effectively echoing the desire of the Iranian people for regime change, which the Iranian opposition has been working toward for the past 36 years. She urged for a series of practical measures, including the establishment of a commission of inquiry into the 1988 massacre of political prisoners in Iran as well as unhindered and intrusive inspection of military and non-military sites in Iran.

Former New Jersey Senator Robert Torricelli, said, “history will remember that you never forgot the land of your birth or your parents, your culture, or your heritage. And what Rouhani needs to know is you will never give up on a free Iran, never.” Addressing thousands of MEK dissidents in Albania, he said, “Millions may be enslaved, but 3,000 free Iranian souls live in Albania at the point of the spear and to them, you have our admiration.”

“There are hundreds of members of Parliament in different countries—in European Parliament, in British Parliament, in Italian—who have signed documents and appeal to their governments to change course now vis-à-vis Iran, to expose Iran to the big violations of human rights, to the infringement of international agreements that they have perpetrated over the past years,” former Italian Foreign Minister Giulio Terzi said.

Several members of the delegation of the Syrian opposition spoke and underscored that “Rouhani is a murderer and he brings all the terrorists from the world to Syria to kill the Syrians and occupy their land. This person helped the Syrian regime.”

Mahtab Amin, representing the Iranian youth, members of Organization of Iranian American Communities (OIAC), told the large rally, “many of us were ourselves born following the 1979 revolution and due to the political persecution imposed on our families, have not yet had the chance to see the cities and town where our parents grew up…One day soon, we shall rejoice and celebrate the renewal of human rights, freedom, and democracy together in Iran.”

While Sri Lankan President was addressing the UN – a mock Prosecution of Sri Lanka was held outside for War Crimes

Sri Lankan President in the Dock



UNITED NATIONS, NEW YORK, September 21, 2017 / —

While the Sri Lankan President was addressing the UN General Assembly, a mock prosecution was held outside the UN against Sri Lanka for committing Genocide, War Crimes and Crimes Against Humanity.

Three judges presided the hearing. Prosecution and defense attorneys presented their arguments.

Several UN officials, diplomats and general public observed the proceedings with interest.

Transnational Government of Tamil Eelam (TGTE) organized this event.


Bailey: The International Justice and Peace Tribunal is in session now.
[3 Judges enter the courtroom]

Presiding Judge: We take Case Number – 001-17, International Civil Society v. Sri Lanka

The Prosecutor: My name is Logeswaran. I represent the Petitioner in the investigation of the charges against and prosecution of Sri Lanka pursuant to the Genocide Convention, the Geneva Convention, Humanitarian Law, and International Customary Law accuse as guilty the State of Sri Lanka of International Crimes of Genocide, Crimes Against Humanity, and War Crimes against the Tamils.

Count 1: During the Armed Conflict in the island of Sri Lanka, the state of Sri Lanka committed a crime of Genocide of the Tamils.
Count 2: During the Armed Conflict in the island of Sri Lanka committed CrimesAgainst Humanity
Count 3: During the Armed Conflict in the island of Sri Lanka the state of Sri Lanka committed War Crimes.

The prosecution specifically alleges that the Sri Lankan state engaged in the following attacks among others:

I. Attacks on civilians in Government-Designated “No Fire Zones”
II. Attacks on Humanitarian Food Distribution Centers
III. Attacks on Civilian Hospitals
IV. Using Sexual Violence as an Instrument of Genocide
V. Employing Enforced Disappearance against Tamils as an Instrument of Genocide
VI. Maintaining Sex Slaves Camps Similar To The “Comfort Women” Camp run by the Japanese During the World War II as A Crime Against Humanity and An Instrument of Genocide.
VII. Sinhala Military Occupation of Tamil Homelands as a war crime
VIII. Employing Systematic and Pervasive Torture on the Tamils as war crimes and crimes against humanity

The Prosecution presents video recordings, satellite imagery, first-hand evidence of UN Staff, and the Channel 4 documentary ‘Killing Fields’.

Defense Counsel: My name is Jayantha Jayasuriya. I am the Attorney General of Sri Lanka, and I represent the state of Sri Lanka in this proceeding. We completely deny these false allegations. These false allegations were made by Western Imperialist and the Tamil Diaspora. All the evidence presented by the prosecution are fake. Sri Lanka has been engaged in a fight against global terrorist since its independence. What Sri Lanka did during the final stages of the Armed Conflict was nothing but a humanitarian rescue operation.

Prosecutor’s Rebuttal: The evidence was inspected by the experts from the UN and was found authentic. The circumstantial evidence compel a conclusion that there was a specific intent to kill the Tamil Nation in the Vanni Region in whole or in part. Even if it is assumed for the sake of argument that the Sri Lankan state was engaged in the global war on terror, it does not allow them to commit genocide or crimes against humanity or war crimes. These are peremptory norms of international law.

Also, the fact even now, 8 years after the Armed-Conflict according to the UN Special Rapporteur on Human Rights and Terrorism that the Sri Lankan state employs torture in a systematic and pervasive manner against the Tamil detainees reinforce our argument that the primary motive for the Sri Lankan State’s military action during the final stages of the war was to liquidate the Tamil Nation.

Presiding Judge: After reviewing the evidence, the Court is satisfied about the authenticity of the evidence provided. After hearing the submissions made by the prosecution and the defense, the Court enters the following verdict:

Count 1: Sri Lanka is guilty of the Crime of Genocide against the Tamils
Count 2: Sri Lanka is guilty of Crimes against Humanity
Count 3: Sri Lanka is guilty of War Crimes

Mother of The Disappeared: How is it possible that a Genocidaire and War Criminal is able to address the UN General Assembly during the Sept 2017 sessions?

A rally was also held to protest Sri Lankan President.

சிறிலங்கா அதிபரின் போக்கினைக் அனைத்துலக சமூகம் கண்டிக்க வேண்டும் : நாடுகடந்த தமிழீழ அரசாங்கம்

UNITED NATIONS, NEW YORK, September 19, 2017 / —

சிறிலங்கா அரசுத் தலைவர் மைத்திரிபாலா சிறிசேனாவின் ஐ.நா பயணத்தின் போது, அவரின் போக்கினை அனைத்துலக சமூகம் கண்டிக்க வேண்டும் என நாடுகடந்த தமிழீழ அரசாங்கம் தெரிவித்துள்ளது.

சிறிலங்கா அரசுத் தலைவர் ஐ.நா பொதுமன்றில் உரையினை ஆற்றும் சமவேளை, 'சிறிலங்கா ஒரு குற்றவாளி நாடு' எனும் தொனிப்பொருளில் கவனயீர்ப்பு போராட்டம் ஒன்று இடம்பெறுகின்றது.

இந்நிலையில் சிறிலங்கா அரசுத் தலைவரின் பொறுப்புக்கூறலைத் புறந்தள்ளும் அவரது பொறுப்பற்ற போக்கினைக் வெளிப்படுத்தும் வகையில் அனைத்துலக சமூகம் நோக்கி அனைத்துலக ஊடங்களுக்கு அனுப்பி வைக்கப்பட்ட அறிக்கையின் முழுவிபரம் வருமாறு :

சிறிலங்காவின் அதிபர் மைத்திரிபாலா சிறிசேனா ஐநாவின் 72வது பொதுச் சபை கூட்டத் தொடரில் கலந்து கொள்கிறார் என்பது அனைவரும் அறிந்ததே. அவர் வொஷிங்டனில் ஆங்காங்கே நிகழவிருக்கும் சந்திப்புகளிலும் விருந்துபசார நிகழ்வுகளிலும் கலந்து கொள்வதானது ஐநா அமைப்பு என்ன புனிதமான நோக்கத்திற்காக உருவாக்கப்பட்டதோ அதைப்பற்றி எவ்வகையிலும் பொருட்படுத்தாத ஒரு தன்மையையே காட்டுகின்றது.

கடந்த வாரம் 'வாஷிங்டன் போஸ்ட்' ஊடகம் வட கொறியா பற்றிய ஐநா சபையின் அறிக்கையிலிருந்து
வெளியே கசிந்த அறிக்கையின் ஒரு பகுதியைப் பற்றிய செய்தியொன்றை வெளியிட்டுள்ளது. அதில், வடகொரியா மீது ஐ.நா பாதுகாப்புச் சபையில் கொண்டு வரப்படவுள்ள பொருளாதாரத் தடையிலிருந்து தப்புவதற்கு சிறிலங்கா அந்த நாட்டுக்கு உதவி செய்வதாகத் தெரிய வந்துள்ளது.

இந்த மாதத்தின் தொடக்கத்தில் சிறிசேனா தனது நிலைப்பாட்டை மிகத் தெளிவாகக் வெளியிட்டுள்ளார்.
அவர் கூறுகின்றார், 'ஜெகத் ஜயசூரியாவையோ வேறெந்த முக்கிய இராணுவ அதிகாரிகளையோ யுத்த கால நாயகர்களையோ தண்டிப்பதற்கு உலகத்தில் எவரையும் நான் அனுமதிக்கப்போவதில்லை என்பததைத் திட்டவட்டமாகத் தெரிவித்துக் கொள்ள விரும்புகின்றேன்.'
இது தான் அவரின் நிலைப்பாடு.

சிறிலங்காவின் போர்க்காலத் தளபதிகளில் ஒருவரும் தற்போதைய பிரேசில், ஆர்ஜன்டீனா, சிலி, கொலம்பியா, சூரினாம் ஆகிய நாடுகளனைத்துக்கும் சிறிலங்காவின் தூதுவராகவுமுள்ள ஜெயசூரியாவுக்கு எதிராகத் தாக்கல் செய்யப்பட்ட போர்க்குற்றம் பற்றிய சட்ட நடவடிக்கைகளைத் தொடர்ந்தே சிறிலங்காவின் அதிபரின் இந்த நிலைப்பாடு முன்வைக்கப்பட்டுள்ளது.

இவ்வாறு யுத்த காலத்தில் உயர் பதவி வகித்த பாதுகாப்புத் துறையின் முன்னைய மூத்த அதிகாரி ஒருவரை தண்டனை பெறுவதிலிருந்து விலக்களிக்கும் செயற் பாடானது ஐநா மனித உரிமைப் பேரவையில் நிறைவேற்றப்பட்ட 30ஃ1(2015) தீர்மானத்திற்கு ஆதரவாக சிறிலங்காவின் அதிபர் தான் வழங்கிய உறுதிப்பாட்டைப் புறக்கணிக்கும் பாரதூரமான செயலாக விளங்குகின்றது.

இச்சந்தர்ப்பத்தில், சிறிலங்காவானது அமெரிக்காவோடு இணைந்து தயாரித்து, முன்வைத்த தீர்மானத்தில் பொறுப்புக் கூறல் எனும் விடயத்தின் அவசியத்தை சிறிலங்கா வலியுறுத்தி உள்ளதை நினைவு கூர விரும்புகின்றோம்.

அது மட்டுமன்றி, யுத்தக் குற்றங்களை விசாரணை செய்வதற்காக சிறப்பு வழக்கறிஞரை உள்ளடக்கிய நீதிப் பொறிமுறை ஒன்றை நிறுவுவதற்கும் சிறிலங்கா தனது ஆதரவை வழங்கியுள்ளதும் குறிப்பிடப் படல் வேண்டும். எனினும், இவ்வாண்டு மார்ச் மாதத்தில் வெளிவந்த ஐநா மனித உரிமைப் பேரவையின் ஆணையாளரின் அறிக்கையில் பின்வருமாறு குறிப்பிடப்பட்டுள்ளது.' சிறிலங்கா வழங்கிய உறுதிப்பாட்டினை நிறைவேற்றும் செயல் முறையானது ஏமாற்றத்தைத் தரும் வகையில் மிக மந்த கதியில் தான் இடம்பெற்று வருகின்றது. உண்மையான முன்னேற்றத்தை ஏற்படுத்துவதற்கு இவை எந்த
வகையிலும் வலுச் சேர்ப்பதாகக் காணப்படவில்லை. '

இவ்வாறு, இராணுவத்தின் உயர் தளபதிகளில் ஒருவராக பொறுப்பாற்றி தனக்குக்கீழ் இயங்கிவந்த அதிகாரிகள் இழைத்த குற்றங்களுக்கான வகைசொல்லவேண்டியவரான ஜயசூரியாவின்மேல் அனைத்துலக சட்டங்களுக்கு அமைய விசாரணை மே‌ற்கொ‌ள்ள வேண்டிய அதிபர் சிறிசேனா அதற்குப் பதிலாக எந்தவித கூச்சமும் இல்லாமல் நீதி நடவடிக்கைகளிலிருந்து விலக்களித்துப் பாதுகாப்பு வழங்க முன்வந்துள்ளது அவரது ஆட்சியிலும் குற்றம் புரிந்தோர் தண்டிக்கப்படாத ஒரு கேவலமான நிலை தொடர்கிறது என்பதை உறுதிப்படுத்துவதையே காண்கிறோம்.

இக் குற்றங்கள் எல்லாமே காணொளிகளாக பதியப்பட்டும் செய்மதி தொழில் நுட்பத்தின் மூலம் உறுதி செய்யப்பட்டும் பின்னர் ஐநாவின் மனித உரிமை ஆணையாளரினால் நியமிக்கப்பட்ட பக்கச் சார்பற்ற விசாரணைக் குழு அதிகாரிகள் இவற்றை தாங்களே நேரடியாகப் பார்வையிட்டு உறுதி செய்ததன் மூலம் நிறுவப்பட்டவையே. இந்த விபரங்களை அக் குழு தனது அறிக்கையில் விபரமாக வெளியிட்டுள்ளது.
பாரிய யுத்தக் குற்றங்கள் இழைக்கப்பட்ட கடைசி வாரங்களில் சிறிலங்காவின் தற்போதைய அதிபர் சிறிசேனா தான் பாதுகாப்பு அமைச்சராக பணியாற்றியுள்ளார். எனவே, அவர் இப்போதெடுக்கும் தன் நிலைப் பாட்டின் மூலம் எவ்வித தயக்கமும் இன்றி தனது சுயநலத்தைக் பார்த்துக் கொள்ள முற்படும் தன்மையும் புலப்படுகின்றது.

சிறிலங்காவில் அதன் இராணுவத்தினரால் பல்லாயிரக் கணக்கான மக்கள் படுகொலை செய்யப்பட்டுளார்கள். பலவந்தமாகக் காணாமல் ஆக்கப்பட்டுள்ளார்கள்; பாலியல் வன்முறைகளுக்கு உள்ளாக்கப்பட்டுள்ளார்கள். இவற்றுக்கான நீதி கிட்டுமா என்பது பெரும் கேள்விக்குறியாகவே தொடர்கிறது.

அதிபர் சிறிசேனா பெரும் செருக்கோடு தனது இராணுவ அதிகாரிகளுக்கு சட்ட விலக்கு வழங்கத் துணிந்துள்ளார். அனைத்துலக சமூகமும் இவ்வாறு இன அழிப்பு உள்ளடங்கலாக பாரிய யுத்தக் குற்றங்களை இழைத்தவர்களுக்கு சட்ட விலக்களிக்கும் விடயத்தில் உறுதியான நிலைப்பாட்டை எடுக்காமலிருப்பதும் பாதிக்கப்பட்டவர்களின் குடும்பத்தினருக்கு அனைத்துலக சமூகத்தின் மீது நம்பிக்கையீனத்தை ஏற்படுத்தியுள்ளது.

அதுமட்டுமின்றி, தற்போது மியன்மார் நாட்டில் இடம் பெற்றுவரும் இன அழிப்பு நடவடிக்கைகளை புரியும் இராணுவ அதிகாரிகளுக்கும் இது மறைமுகமான பலத்தைக் கொடுத்துள்ளது என்பதும் கருத்தில் கொள்ளப்படல் வேண்டும்.

சிறிலங்காவின் அதிபரின் முன்னுதாரணத்தைப் பின்பற்றி அவர்களும் சட்ட விலக்களிப்பைப் பயன்படுத்தி எவ்வித பயமும் இன்றி செயல்பட இந்த நிலைப்பாடு வழி வகுக்கும்.

இவ் வாரம் நிகழவிருக்கும் விருந்துபசாரங்களின் போது அதிபர் சிறிசேனா தனது மதுக் கிண்ணத்தை உயர்த்தும் போது தனது சாதுரியத்தின் மூலம் சர்வதே சமூகத்தை மருட்டித் தன் வழியில் கொண்டு செல்வதில் தாம் காணும் வெற்றியை எண்ணி மகிழ்ந்து கொள்வார் என்பதில் ஐயமில்லை.

இவ்வாறு நாடுகடந்த தமிழீழ அரசாங்கத்தின் அறிக்கையில் தெரிவிக்கப்பட்டுள்ளது.

GREENSBORO, NC, USA, September 19, 2017 / — Early data shows there were over 121,000 investigated cases of child abuse and neglect in North Carolina during fiscal year July 2016 through June 2017. State law requires individuals or institutions suspecting child abuse or neglect to report cases to the Division of Social Services (DSS) for investigation (G.S. 7B-301).

“The high number of children impacted by neglect or abuse indicates too many families are struggling and under severe stress,” said Rebecca Starnes, Vice President of Children’s Home Society of North Carolina. “Abuse and neglect can be the product of a number of issues facing families, including poverty, working multiple jobs to make ends meet, high levels of stress, unrealistic expectations of children, mental health challenges, or substance abuse.”

“DSS is an advocate and fail-safe for the more than 2.2 million children and their families in our state,” said Starnes. “This vital service is provided by dedicated and hard working staff in all 100-counties across North Carolina.”

DSS staff investigates and assesses all suspected cases of child abuse and neglect; diagnoses the problem with the family; provides in-home services to help keep families together; coordinates community and agency services; or, petitions the court for removal of the child from the home, if necessary.

Nearly 70-percent of the abuse and neglect cases were reported by educational personnel, medical personnel, law courts, and human services. Approximately 30-percent were referred by relatives, non-relatives, parents, or care providers. Child victims reported fewer than one-percent of the cases.

“There are different reasons for and levels of abuse and neglect,” said Starnes. “The hopeful news is that families have support. Parents can learn about their children’s needs and learn new, better ways to react. Parents can change their behavior, and even if they’ve had problems or challenges in the past, the majority can provide a safe, loving, and permanent home for their child.”

Following the investigation of reported cases in 2016-17, around 45-percent of the findings indicated that services were needed, recommended, or have been provided. Services were not recommended for 40-percent of the cases, and about 16-percent were determined to be unsubstantiated.

“Depending on the specific needs of children and families,” said Starnes, “Children’s Home Society and other organizations partner with DSS and provide a variety of options including intensive family preservation services (support and education in the home), family education programs, foster care, and adoption services.”

Demographically, the male-female ratio of investigated cases was virtually even at 51 to 49-percent. Almost 40-percent of the cases were ages 0 to 5, with 39-percent ages 6 to 12. Roughly 20-percent of the children were ages 13-17.

“Most of our abuse and neglect cases require intensive family preservation services,” said Starnes. “Teaming with DSS, our specialists work with the child and family daily, providing the education and resources they need to understand and overcome their problems and develop healthier family relationships.”

“The success rate of the intensive family preservation program is remarkable,” said Starnes. “Over 95-percent of the families completed the program. Six months following completion, 98-percent of the children are still in the home in a situation deemed safe by DSS.”

According to Starnes, abuse and neglect impacts rural and urban areas, crosses all socio-economic lines and includes every race.

Approximately 51-percent of the investigated cases of abuse and neglect last year were Caucasian. African-Americans made up the second largest segment with about 36-percent, followed by Hispanic at around 11-percent. All other races combined, including American Indian and Alaskan, were roughly 13-percent of the investigated cases.

“Partnerships with the staff of DSS are critical to achieving success for the child. One organization could not do the work alone,” said Starnes. “We all want children to be in safe, loving, and permanent families, and we’re working together to do what we can to help make that happen.”

Children’s Home Society of North Carolina helps support more than 20,000 children and families annually through a diverse array of services including adoption, foster care, parenting education, teen pregnancy prevention, and family preservation programs.

In 2009 at the age of 7, Grace decided that she wanted to do something to help educate people and raise awareness for epilepsy.

Thus, Talent for Epilepsy was created and with help from family, friends and the community the first Talent for Epilepsy Talent & Fashion show was held in 2013 with a huge success.

Over the years T4E’s impacts has grown and continues to grow. Each year we reach further and our message of epilepsy awareness and education makes a bigger difference.

Each year Talent for Epilepsy choses one charity to receive ticket sale proceeds. Thanks, to the overwhelming amount of tickets sales this year’s charity, Epilepsy Support Network of Orange County, received a check for $1500.00

Talent for Epilepsy was founded in 2009 by Grace Edwards for her cousin Logan, who is a person with Epilepsy. Logan is one of 3 million Americans affected by this irreversible
neurological disorder. It is estimated that 1 in 26 people have epilepsy and that it is responsible for over 50,000 U.S. deaths each year.

Logan was diagnosed with Epilepsy in 2005 (at the age of 1) and we have watched him deal with the stigma associated with this disorder throughout his life. Many children and adults do not understand what Epilepsy is or how to deal with it. Logan gets blank stare seizures and grand mal seizures. Thanks to medicine that Logan takes daily and a pacemaker that was surgically implanted in his chest Logan's seizures are not as severe as they could be. But surgery, tests and medicine are expensive and even the best insurance does not cover much when it comes to Epilepsy.

Some families are homeless and can't afford to pay for their child's epilepsy medicine. Epilepsy is a life threatening disorder of the brain and can lead to death; can you imagine being faced with the decision to eat or provide your child with life-saving medicine?
