For Sister Ima (My Kindergarten Teacher).

You taught me well. Even if you made me stand in the corner for an hour because I was so stubborn.
You put the dunce cap on the other girl's head.

You were so kind I never forgot you!

Trail of Tears

Oglala Lakota College
From its inception in 1971, our college’s mission has been to provide the educational credentials to our students so that they could compete for employment opportunities on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation.

As a result of having a college on the reservation; Lakota people are now employed in teaching, nursing, human services, business, computer, and vocational educational positions on the Pine Ridge reservation.

In 1980 the Supreme Court ruled upon the longest running court case in US History, the United States vs Sioux Nation. The court determined that the terms of the 1868 Fort Laramie Treaty had been violated when the Sioux were resettled onto P.O.W. camps, and 7 million acres of their land were opened up to prospectors and homesteaders. These camps are now called “reservations”.

The grim statistics on Native Reservations today are the equivalent to that of a 3rd world country, revealing the legacy of colonization and treaty violations. Unemployment on the Reservation fluctuates between 80-90%. Many are homeless, and those with homes are packed into rotting buildings with up to 5 families. More than 90% of the population lives below the federal poverty line. Make A Difference

The NYLP is a year round job and leadership training program which provides Newark, NJ high school and college youth with job training experience, leadership development, and exposure to different career options in environmental and horticultural fields and opportunities for pursuing a college education.

In addition, job training interns are given the chance to participate in outdoor horticultural activities that they would probably never experience otherwise.

Good Samaritan Hunger Relief Tax Incentive Extension Act of 2009
A bill to amend the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 to permanently extend and expand the charitable deduction for contributions of food inventory.

Fighting Hunger Is A Team Effort!
The Good Samaritan Hunger Relief Tax Incentive Act
Feeding America’s nationwide network provides food to 25 million people every year, and strong U.S. government programs are also vital to meet the nutritional needs of low-income Americans. The business sector, including farmers, food manufacturers, wholesalers, retailers, and others, also plays an instrumental role in battling hunger. By donating food and transportation and promoting volunteerism, businesses of all sizes help put food on the tables of families in need. While businesses already make substantial contributions to fight hunger,improved public policies, particularly passage of the Good Samaritan Hunger Relief Tax Incentives Act, will promote even greater business participation in this effort.
