亞裔婦女健康會表揚甄碧鳳、魯家珍、胡涵婷


女健康Asian Women For Health)三月廿七日在塔芙茨醫療中心舉辦「感謝亞裔會(AppreciASIANS),表揚魯家珍,甄碧鳳,胡涵婷,說明該會從為亞裔患癌婦女提供支援開始,現已擴大為全方位的促進婦女健康。
近百名出席者,當晚欣賞錄影片,聆聽患癌者,支持者,各從不同角度談感受,都認為難得出現了一個關注亞裔婦女健康組織,讓許多人獲益。
女健康會創辦者黃千姬,本身是乳癌幸存者,原本辦理亞裔乳癌項目(Asian Breast Cancer Project),以她曾有的親身經歷,更切中要點的為患乳癌婦女提供精神支持,協助他們獲取適當醫療服務等,去年才以教育(Educate)、倡Advocate)、報答(Reciprocate)為標語,擴大為亞裔婦女健康會。
Friends of Mel基金會是女健康會的第一個捐款者。該會行政主任Paulin Alighieri這晚擔任主講人。她透露去年參加女健康會活動,聽到亞裔婦女分享得知患癌後的恐懼,礙於語言障礙,和醫護人員難以溝通時的無助,深受震撼,也為亞裔婦女健康會的致力為這些婦女提供各種幫助而感動。
Friends of Mel基金會原本就是個以“梅爾手環(Mels Bracelet)“籌款,支持癌症患者的機構該會當晚宣佈,捐款一千元之外,月份的出售梅爾手環收入,也將捐給女健康會。
當晚亞裔婦女健康會頒發”同儕領導獎“給魯家珍,”社區服務獎給甄碧鳳,最佳醫德獎給胡涵婷。
魯家珍和甄碧鳳都是曾患乳癌。甄碧鳳坦言,自己得四期乳癌,已是大約廿年前的事,但最近妹妹也得乳癌,讓她親眼見到廿年來醫療技術與知識的改進。當年醫生要她待在家裡,兩個星期不吃東西,現在醫生卻讓他妹妹照樣出門,還什麼都能吃。她勸患癌者別老想著自己可能不久於人世。
魯家珍目前仍在治療中。她透露身體多處,仍因癌病時感疼痛,但經由亞裔癌症項目的協助,認識了很多同病相憐者,也學會了放開心懷,藉著做義工來轉移注意力,不但精神好了許多,心情也更快樂。
胡涵婷是因為對癌症患者無微不至的關懷,廣獲好評。許多出席會議者聽說她下個月將回台灣出任教職,都感到依依不捨。
即將到華府做證,籲請國會增加癌症研究經費的Vandana Sharma,當晚應黃千姬邀請到會,述說即使只是出門搭便車,也不宜搭男性駕駛的車等文化習俗,讓患癌的她遭遇更多生活困難。她邊說邊流淚,令人難過,也更感到抗癌需要許多勇氣。
            女健康會目前有黃千姬,陳寶來(Selena Tan),陳王錫萍,曾惠珠,袁立達,Sujata Ghosh等六名董事,將於五月十六日在西蒙斯學院參加第五屆亞太裔太平洋島民精神健康論壇,五月廿一日在塔芙茨大學舉辦第二屆“麻州亞裔婦女健康狀況”會議。

紀念波士頓馬拉松賽爆炸案展覽 4/7 開幕

"Dear Boston: Messages from the Marathon Memorial" Exhibition to Open at Boston Public Library on April 7 

Mayor Martin J. Walsh and organizing partners to open month-long exhibition

BOSTON – In the days and weeks following the 2013 Boston Marathon, a makeshift memorial grew in downtown Boston’s Copley Square. Comprised of thousands of items like flowers, posters, notes, t-shirts, and running shoes, the memorial offered messages of love, support, and hope to the victims and their families as well as the broader city of Boston. Beginning April 7, select pieces from that memorial will be on display at the Boston Public Library in an exhibition called "Dear Boston: Messages from the Marathon Memorial," which aims to provide visitors with a place for reflection. The exhibition will open with a special ceremony led by Mayor Walsh at 10:00 a.m. in the Library’s McKim Exhibition Hall, located in the Central Library in Copley Square, 700 Boylston Street. Dear Boston is open to the public beginning at 11:00 a.m. on April 7. 

"Dear Boston represents our strength and solidarity not only as a city, but also as a community that supports one another through even the most difficult of times," said Boston Mayor Martin J. Walsh. "I encourage people – residents and visitors alike – to visit the exhibition, experience the resilience of the people of Boston, and view the messages of hope and healing."

Open from April 7 through May 11, the exhibition invites visitors to experience the profound emotions and solidarity evoked by the original memorial. Divided into three major sections, it transitions visitors from reflection to action and from memories of the tragedy to messages of hope and courage for the future as they move through the exhibition and out into their community. The exhibition, curated by Rainey Tisdale, is organized by a partnership that includes the Boston City Archives, Boston Art Commission, New England Museum Association, Boston Public Library, and Iron Mountain. For more information, visit www.bpl.org/dearboston.  

"Boston Public Library is proud to host this exhibition," said Amy E. Ryan, President of the Boston Public Library. "Libraries are places for community gathering and lifelong learning, in good times and in challenging times. We invite Bostonians and Bostonians at heart to visit our Copley Square location during this important time of remembrance."

In June of 2013, thousands of items from the memorial were transferred to the Boston City Archives for safekeeping after the memorial was dismantled. Now, after months of preservation and organization, selected iconic items will be displayed in the exhibition, including personal notes of condolence; signs and posters from towns all over Massachusetts and the world with messages of support and encouragement; items left by spectators, runners, and Marathon volunteers; declarations of hope and compassion; and 150 pairs of running shoes. Following the exhibition, all of the items will be preserved by Iron Mountain and available to the City for as long as needed.

"As a company with its global headquarters in Boston, the events of April 15, 2013 resonated with us deeply," said William Meaney, president and CEO of Iron Mountain. "We are honored to be an organizing partner by providing our resources and expertise to the city of Boston’s Marathon Memorial, affording us an opportunity grounded in the principles Iron Mountain was founded upon over 60 years ago: protecting, preserving and creating access to some of the world’s most treasured ideas, information and memories. Rest assured these precious items are safe with us."

The Dear Boston exhibition is one part of a larger community arts effort called #BostonBetter, where area museums, libraries, and archives will host various programs associated with the one-year anniversary of the 2013 marathon. For more information on this project, visit bostonbetter.org.

"Like the original memorial in Copley Square, exhibitions like ‘Dear Boston’ can help us find meaning from tragedy and bring us closer together," said New England Museum Association Executive Director Dan Yaeger. "We hope that #BostonBetter can provide that, helping to inspire people to act for the betterment of their communities moving forward. We’re happy to help bring together the museums and museum professionals who made the exhibition and supporting events possible."

波士頓冒雨反黑箱服貿 守護台灣民主




大波士頓昨(三十)日天雨,風寒,劍橋市哈佛廣場卻圍聚了近兩百名來自台灣的學生,社區人士,人手一朵黃色向日葵,響應台灣“330太陽花運動“,強調“自己的國家自己救”,呼籲台灣政府聆聽民意,把“服貿協議“退回立法院重新逐條審查。



發起集會活動的學生和台灣同鄉會攜手,和全世界十八個國家,四十九個城市,同步集會,以”全球零時差接力,支持太陽花學運“,響應在台灣舉行的330上凱道遊行。
哈佛大學教職人員呂宗禧昨日和數名年輕學子在哈佛廣場主持“波士頓串聯接力聲援太陽花學運“活動。
他們以“330・和平・堅定・護民主”為主題,強調“波士頓台灣人不沉默”,在哈佛廣場地鐵站旁的空地,舉標語,喊口號,朗讀“媽媽別哭”一詩,唱太陽花學運主題歌“島嶼天光”,“憨人”,“起來”,表達他們“反政府暴力鎮壓”,“支持台灣民主”的心意。
在電子郵件中,他們還指出,多名哈佛大學教授,包括科技與社會研究權威 Sheila Jasanoff教授 比爾蓋茲講座教授兼中研院院士孔祥重教授法學院教授 Duncan M. Kennedy 等人,都參加聯署,呼籲台灣以和平且民主的方式對待太陽花學生運動知名法律學者,哈佛法學院教授 Duncan Kennedy 發表了“ 憂心警察暴力、支持台灣民主”的聲明。
            昨日自願做“肥皂箱”發言的,有哈佛大學精神科醫師林彥峰,一名十九歲,剛從台灣到波士頓麻州大學就讀學生張傳禧,揹著吉他來的陳姓學生,劍橋合唱團副團長屠澤寬等,不下五,六人。現場還有童書繪本作家幸佳慧分送向日葵,波士頓大學學生李佩璇送出自己做的廿多朵太陽花胸飾。
            波士頓台灣同鄉會有十幾人在出席了勒星頓鎮的集會後,趕到哈佛廣場支援學生。
林彥峰抱著襁褓中的女兒發言,盼“天佑台灣”,指馬英九常提蔣渭水,想在台灣未來歷史中留下個定位,但應該記得蔣渭水曾經說過的是台人的台不是督府(總統府),應該聆聽民意。他也抨擊江宜樺對學生使用暴力。
揹著吉他到場的學生表示,1990年時,學生們在中正堂前靜坐六天,讓政府知道國家的權力屬於人民。2008年他第一次投票,就用選票讓在位者(當年的總統為陳水扁)知道,如果政府做得不好,人民可以把他的權力拿回來。他表示服貿協議乍聽是經濟事務,但“兩岸”服貿協議可不只經濟這麼單純,政府,人民都應該仔細研究。他強調,現在的學生都很理性,但“服貿”事件讓他很生氣。
波士人生物科技協會(BTBA)創辦人陳昇宏表示,他和許多人一樣,起初也沒太留意“兩岸服貿協議”是怎麼一回事,但發生警察暴力鎮壓,學生流血事件後,他也忍不住覺得過分,開始廣泛閱讀,和好幾個朋友討論,還找來唸法律的人做分析。他們都認為整件事情很複雜,但怎麼都看不出來有暴力鎮壓學生的必要。現場流傳出來的視頻影象,也讓人覺得警察處理手法很起人疑竇。
昨日儘管天雨,氣溫很低,學生們高舉,“終止外交隔離台灣”,“反黑箱服貿”等標語的集會,還是進行到下午四點多,再轉往哈佛大學創校人銅像前獻“太陽花”,請集會者在“捍衛台灣民主”布條上簽名,重申退回服貿協議兩岸協議監督法制化,先立法、再審服貿協議召開公民憲政會議要求朝野立委站出來,響應人民的訴求等四點要求後,才結束。

            學生們高舉“美國波士頓支持你們”的標語牌。

            參加活動者用塑膠袋做出“我不服”的人肉標語牌。

            林彥峰抱著襁褓中的女兒發言,憂心台灣的未來發展。

            台灣同鄉教會成員也敢來支持。

            學生抱著吉他在向場唱“島嶼天光”。

            集會者高歌“島嶼天光”。

【330・和平・堅定・護民主】 波士頓台灣人不沉默

「萊辛頓Battle Green」與「哈佛廣場」兩場地接力聲援活動

1775年4月19日,在波士頓的萊辛頓 (Lexington)響起了美國獨立戰爭的第一槍響後,美國義勇軍從此風起雲湧致使英軍節節敗退,美軍在氣勢磅礡之下於隔年宣讀了《美國獨立宣言》。波士頓被譽為美國自由民主的搖籃地,除了有這段戰史,也在於全美最古老的高等教育哈佛大學的屹立不墜,它自1636年建校來便以「真理」(Veritas)為校訓培育許多接續維護民主自由的領導者,包括美國歷代八位總統。⋯⋯

然而,也是畢業於哈佛的現任台灣總統馬英九,當前卻以三軍統帥、超級總統之姿,放任執政黨與府院戕害民主法治程序、漠視多數民意,欲強行通過無經立院審查的服務貿易協議。

如今,數萬名台灣學子掀起太陽花學運起身反抗黑箱作業,府院卻在324下令鎮壓前往行政院抗議的學生與抗議者,鎮暴警察手法殘忍有違比例原則,致使抗議者血賤街頭,國際記者協會與特赦組織等單位隨即為此發出嚴正譴責。政院至今否認施行「國家暴力」之實,依舊定調是「合法柔性驅離,輕拍學生肩膀」,並藉由強勢媒體混淆視聽。

我們很遺憾,台灣當權者如此踐踏民主人權,馬英九不但讓哈佛大學蒙羞,他的領導作為也讓身在波士頓的台灣人感到悲憤與不齒。

因此,我們加入台灣學子發起的「330・和平・堅定・護民主」大遊行,與全球18個國家,49個城市串聯,為自由民主人權的尊嚴挺身而出!

我們在波士頓這兩個具有歷史民主意義的地方「萊辛頓Battle Green」與「哈佛廣場」,由波士頓老中青台灣人串聯接力聲援台灣太陽花學運活動,同聲嚴正譴責國家暴力、要求府院重視學生訴求:

一、退回服貿協議
二、兩岸協議監督法制化,先立法、再審查服貿協議
三、召開公民憲政會議
四、要求朝野立委站出來,響應人民的訴求

為此,邀請所有在波士頓的朋友,為台灣的民主與未來主一起站出來!
