Church known as a birthplace of LA’s Chicano civil rights…

first_imgAn 1968 photo of the altar at the Church of the Epiphany in Los Angeles, from the La Raza Photograph Collection, courtesy of the UCLA Chicano Studies Research Center via RNSThe Rev. Tom Carey, vicar of the Church of the Epiphany, said the church has remained relevant all these years.“It has always been a place that has been at the forefront of social activism,” Carey said.Epiphany has continued to hold Sunday services in Spanish and English online during the pandemic. It offers up its kitchen to prepare meals for delivery to local families and seniors. Clergy have partnered with other groups to address evictions and deportation arrests and have participated in Black Lives Matter protests and rallied for grocery workers demanding hazard pay.To Carey, what makes a place sacred “is what has gone on there in the past” and “what continues to happen there.”In announcing the national designation, the church has launched a GoFundMe initiative to raise $230,000 for a series of renovations. The fundraiser is part of the final phase of the $1 million Restore Epiphany Campaign to help fund the church’s preservation. The church has so far raised more than $780,000.Funds are earmarked toward Epiphany’s leaking basement, which was home to the Chicano newspaper La Raza and stores photos and documentation of the church’s history. The money will also go toward protecting the archives, installing an elevator for ADA-compliant access, and creating meeting rooms for legal and health clinics. They also plan to update the heating and cooling systems. Associate Priest for Pastoral Care New York, NY Católicos por La Raza members demonstrate in Los Angeles, circa 1970.

The group is known for its 1969 confrontation at St. Basil Catholic Church in Los Angeles, where it clashed with police on Christmas Eve as its members tried to confront then-Cardinal James Francis McIntyre about what they said was the church’s neglect of the poor.Fifty years later, Vazquez-Ramos helped organize a 2020 reunion of the now-disbanded Católicos por La Raza group to commemorate the famed demonstration. It was held at Epiphany.To Vazquez-Ramos, many religious institutions are “about making money.”“But here is the difference,” he said. “The Church of the Epiphany continues to be an institution committed to helping its community.”The church’s recognition, Vazquez-Ramos said, is “historically important to our community because there are so many landmarks that are often ignored because they’re not part of the mainstream of America.”This story was originally published by Religion News Service and is republished here with permission. Rector Washington, DC The Church of the Epiphany in the Lincoln Heights neighborhood of Los Angeles recently earned a spot on the National Register of Historic Places. Photo: Alejandra Molina/RNSNow, five decades later, the church has earned a spot on the National Register of Historic Places, the official list of sites worthy of preservation in the United States.This designation is one of a few listings on the Register related to Chicano history. Of the roughly 86,000 designated sites, less than 8% were associated with African Americans, American Latinos, Asian Americans and other minority groups in 2014, according to the Congressional Research Service. The church announced its recognition in late January.“To have that place recognized for what it has done in the community is important,” Lopez said.Lopez said the church was where she learned community organizing and “how to be there for the people.“It was a very special place because it wasn’t conservative, but yet they had the gospel that said we had to act,” she added. “We had to be active on behalf of our brothers and sisters. That became home for me.” Missioner for Disaster Resilience Sacramento, CA Submit a Press Release Curate Diocese of Nebraska Rector Martinsville, VA Episcopal Migration Ministries’ Virtual Prayer Vigil for World Refugee Day Facebook Live Prayer Vigil June 20 @ 7 p.m. ET Rector Tampa, FL Chicano organizer Rodolfo “Corky” Gonzales, center, speaks during a lunch gathering at the Church of the Epiphany in November 1968. From the La Raza Photograph Collection, courtesy of the UCLA Chicano Studies Research Center via RNS[Religion News Service – Los Angeles, California] Lydia Lopez was demonstrating in a picket line in 1968 to support Mexican American educator and activist Sal Castro, who was removed from the classroom after participating in the historic student walkouts, when UCLA professor Juan Gómez-Quiñones told her of a party at the Church of the Epiphany.Lopez loved parties, so she decided to go. The Episcopal parish, located in the Los Angeles neighborhood of Lincoln Heights, was embellished with papel picado. Lopez could hear mariachis playing. She recalled being overwhelmed with emotions as she saw how a place of worship embraced her Mexican American identity.“I wept because I needed a place as a Chicana, and I needed a place as a Christian to call home,” said Lopez, who had gone years without being involved in a church after growing up in a Baptist church that she’d come to feel was too conservative.The Church of the Epiphany, founded in 1887, became a center for the flourishing Chicano movement in the 1960s. It’s where activists organized around Robert F. Kennedy’s presidential campaign. It’s where leaders met to plan the East Los Angeles high school student walkouts protesting inequities in their schools, as well as the historic Chicano Moratorium against the Vietnam War draft. Labor leader Cesar Chavez gave speeches in the church hall. In later years, the church played a role in helping Central American refugees fleeing wars.

He described the church as a “mecca” and a “birthplace” of the Chicano movement.As a college student at California State University, Long Beach, he remembers attending meetings in the church’s basement to help his former high school teacher Sal Castro plan the student walkouts.Vazquez-Ramos’ own faith came into play at the height of the Chicano movement.Raised Catholic in Mexico, he became disillusioned with the church in the U.S., where Masses were in Latin. He recognized inequities within the church and became an activist with Católicos por La Raza, a Catholic lay group formed by Mexican Americans in 1969.

Updating Breaking News: MARKEITH LOYD ARRESTED

first_img Loyd surrendered wearing body armor and with 2 handgunsMarkeith Loyd, the man accused of killing an Orlando police officer, was captured and arrested by law enforcement officers tonight around 7PM at 1156 Lescot Lane in the Carver Shores neighborhood of West Orlando, according to  Orlando Police Chief John Mina.“Markeith Loyd was not captured because of a tip, but by good old-fashioned police work,” said Mina. “It was great police work and I congratulate all the officers involved.”Officers from OPD, Orange County Sheriff’s Office, Metropolitan Bureau of Investigation, Florida Department of Law Enforcement, and the US Marshals were on the scene during Loyd’s capture.According to Mina, Loyd attempted to escape through the back door of the residence when police called for him to surrender, but was confronted by OPD officers, and went back inside the house. He later came out the front door wearing body armor and threw down two handguns, one with a 100-round drum. Mina also said that Loyd physically resisted arrest and suffered minor facial injuries during the arrest.Loyd will be charged with two counts of first-degree murder for the death of Sade Dixon and her unborn child. He was also charged with two counts of aggravated assault, and one count of attempted homicide. No charges have been filed in the shootiing death of OPD Lieutenant Debra Clayton as of yet.Chief Mina said officers used Clayton’s handcuffs to secure Loyd. “It is a long-standing tradition in law enforcement that we use a fallen officer’s handcuffs to apprehend the suspect.”Orange County Sheriff Jerry Demings described the emotions felt by all of Central Florida.“I do congratulate all of the law enforcement officers involved in bringing this individual into custody,” said Demings. “This community has been emotionally traumatized for the last eight days. Now it can breathe a collective sigh of relief.”The peaceful outcome surprised many, including Mina.“I thought this would end up in a different situation. I’m very happy it ended up concluding peacefully. But these agencies involved were very professional and very well-trained and I knew they would act with restraint.”It was also learned that those people who helped Loyd evade arrest will be arrested.“This investigation is not going to stop. If people aided him, they will be arrested.”Crimeline received over 1,500 tips from the community, and the reward was raised to $125,000 before Loyd’s capture. The US Marshals added $25,000 to the amount and put Loyd on the 15 most wanted list.Mayors Buddy Dyer of Orlando and Teresa Jacobs of Orange County commented on the capture on their social media accounts.“Thank you Orlando Police and partners for capturing this fugitive,” Dyer said. “Prayers continue for families of fallen officers.”“Manhunt has ended! Continued prayers for the families of Lt Debra Clayton and DFC Norm Lewis,” Jacobs tweeted. “Great work by our heroes in law enforcement!” Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter You have entered an incorrect email address!

Moskowitz, Strock & Strock & Lavan All of us are familiar with the practice of buying and selling property in the form of land, residential and commercial space, but the buying and selling of the air surrounding these spaces is a concept well-understood by few. With the recovery of the condominium market in New York City, residential development is at an all-time high, and this means taller and even more luxurious towers are fighting each other tooth and nail for the best possible views of the city. Because of this, the price of air above and around these potential developments is becoming more and more expensive, since a room with a view is worth a whole lot more than one without. Is it possible that these empty, vertical pockets are now worth more than the ground below them?Read more about New York City’s air rights to find out. So what exactly are air rights? They can be defined as a building’s “unused or excess development rights” measured by square foot and can be transferred from one building to another if zoning in that specific area permits. Air rights in NYC typically sell for 50-60% of what the ground below them is worth; some, however, can be worth much more than that, as in the case of air rights along the High Line.  Air was not inalienable to New Yorkers until 1916, when zoning rules and height restrictions were created to try to ensure the development of a healthier city in terms of air and light. Air rights did not become a salable commodity, however, until the 1960’s when density quotas were established for every city block. These restrictions came in the form of a ratio between floor area and lot size (F.A.R.), determining a building’s allowable bulk. This ratio depends on the building’s zone and position on a block or boulevard, where side streets normally carry more restrictions than corner and boulevard lots, especially in height. Trump World Tower at 845 United Nations Plaza is a great example of a building that legally accumulated air rights from at least 7 low-rise properties that had F.A.R. to spare, maxing out the block’s allowable density with a single, looming tower. Thanks to acquiring air rights from two adjacent properties, Kenneth S. Horn’s 18-story Isis Condominium at 303 East 77th Street cantilevers 8 feet above both neighbors starting at the 6th floor, the result of which are “360-degree views, more spacious apartments, abundant light and higher resale value.” A third New York City developer spent more than 15 years and umpteen millions buying unused air rights from smaller properties around his tower just to have enhanced Central Park views. The multi-million dollar annexation of air space above and around these low-rise properties is causing a major vertical transformation of New York City’s skyline. According to air-rights expert Robert Von Ancken, it is the major reason why these “monster buildings” are cropping up all over the city, drastically changing its horizon. He adds that air-rights trading is on the rise because, quite frankly, it can make the difference between a “marginal and a profitable project.”So will the future landscape of New York City be filled with a collection of 200-story residential towers with stilted buildings in between? How do those who gave up their air rights feel about these high-rise developments? How will they affect our experience of the surrounding streets and plazas we know and enjoy today? The answers to these questions may not be clear, but one thing can be said for sure: skyscraper-free areas will become rare in the city if the so-called “Great Air Race” continues, and it won’t be too long before New York City has an entirely new personality.

The twinned studios are located remotely from the main house and configured to create a tranquil, contemplative space in the garden.Save this picture!© Peter CookOur design approach takes advantage of the existing site topography, orientation and mature planting to utilize the natural daylight, minimize the impact of direct sunlight, reduce the visual impact to the surrounding area and create beautifully framed views of the ever changing gardens and sky. The clients wanted the buildings to be experienced as part of the journey through the gardens.Save this picture!© Peter CookThe brief from our client was to create two separate 40 and 60sq/m multi functional studio spaces set within the existing landscape and replacing an existing dilapidated workshop and garage. The existing site topography was to remain unchanged with the concept of the studios seemingly touching the ground lightly. With the Studios conceived as being a retreat, the approach to them being low maintenance was also key to fulfilling the brief.Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanLow energy consumption is achieved through the use of a high level of insulation and the incorporation of electrical panel heaters that are only in operation when the buildings are in use. All rainwater is diverted into to the existing balance pond.The building fabric is formed from a thermally efficient timber and steel framed construction. Internally the Studios are finished with robust painted chipboard linings and externally with corrugated fibre cement board. Historically our client’s family is deeply routed in the supply and construction of corrugated iron buildings of the early 1900’s such as churches, huts etc and this is referenced with the use of the corrugated panels that also relate the studios contextually to the many agricultural outbuildings in the area and create a modern vernacular language.Save this picture!© Peter CookWe all need to consider the environmental, social and economic sustainability of the built environment we are designing and using. From putting on a jumper to intelligent thermostatic controls; being able to open a ventilation panel and feel a cool breeze whilst listening to the birds to passive cooling techniques; from thinking locally for materials to managing the impact of site activity on the greater environment; a pragmatic, sustainable approach is key to all of Soup Architects thinking.Save this picture!© Peter CookSustainability statement:As the Studios are perceived as being retreats and do not have an annual occupant it has been difficult to calculate or presume the annual energy demands. The Studios could be used once a week or once a month and the energy demand will be in relation to the occupancy timeframe and the activities being held.Save this picture!© Peter CookFor example, if the studios are being used for painting artwork during the daytime, the lighting and heating systems may not be required due to the amount of natural daylight and the effectiveness of the thermal fabric of the buildings. During a recent visit at the end of January between 10am and 4pm, the heating system was not required and the internal temperature was very comfortable.Save this picture!© Peter CookIn designing the Studios we have exceeded the recommended target U-values for all elements and strived to achieve the latest ‘Best starting U-values’ to reduce the overall demand required for the electrical heating elements. The as built U-values for the elements of the buildings set against the target U-values are:Wall        = 0.23kWh            /              0.35kWhFloor      = 0.16kWh            /              0.25kWhRoof       = 0.16kWh            /              0.25kWhGlazing   = 1.40kWh            /              2.20kWhThe buildings incorporate the latest intelligent electrical radiators with built in thermostats and low thermal mass to allow quicker heating up and lower energy consumption. Each studio has been calculated to require radiator outputs of 4.00kWh for studio 01 and 1.75kWh for studio 02. SAP calculations were not required for the buildings to meet building regulations approval as the studios were classed as an extension to an existing dwelling.Save this picture!© Peter CookBoth Studios have been fitted throughout with LED lighting systems as opposed to the more traditional fluorescent lamp fittings of studio spaces to significantly reduce the overall energy demand.Save this picture!SectionAll rainwater collected from the flat roof areas is channelled into an existing balance pond and the system has also been future proofed to allow the rainwater drainage to be diverted to a possible water storage tank if required by the client.Save this picture!© Peter CookProject gallerySee allShow lessLa Rambla House / Rosa Ma Ballester EspigaresSelected ProjectsBBC Profiles Zhang Yue: The Man Who Plans to Build the World’s Tallest Building in 7…Architecture News Share The Studios / SOUP architectsSave this projectSaveThe Studios / SOUP architectslast_img read more

Three party leaders make the Legacy10 pledge to leave a charitable legacy

Hon David Cameron MP, Rt. Hon Nick Clegg MP and Rt. Hon Ed Miliband MP have all pledged to leave a charitable legacy in their wills.Legacy10, launched in November 2011, is a nationwide campaign to increase the number of people in the UK who leave money to charity in their wills. It urges individuals across the UK to pledge 10% of their estate to charity. With effect from April 2012 any estate which leaves at least 10% (of its taxable wealth) to a charitable cause will be able to take advantage of a reduced rate in inheritance tax, from its current level of 40% down to 36%.Roland Rudd, founder and Chairman of Legacy10, said that the appeal of Legacy10 lay in its simplicity. “We are asking people to make a contribution”, he explained, “to their favourite cultural or charitable cause in their will, the benefit to that cause will be four times bigger than the small loss to the donor. I am so pleased that all of our main political leaders have not only chosen to support Legacy10 but have also made a personal commitment to change their wills to make the pledge.”Currently only 7% of the UK population leave a charitable gift in their will, even though 74% support a charity during their lifetime, according to Legacy Foresight’s ‘Legacy Market Snapshot’, 2011.CAF Chief Executive John Low welcomed the pledge, saying: “CAF warmly welcomes the announcement by each of the three party leaders that they will leave 10% of their estates to charity.“This is an excellent gesture, and one that will doubtless be warmly received by the public and charities alike – especially in the current economic climate, where demand on many charities is growing while overall funding for many charities is falling.“We know from the success of the Gates-Buffett Giving Pledge in the US that where prominent people in society pledge to give a substantial amount of their wealth to charity, many will follow.”www.legacy10.comTaking action with Legacy10Is your charity supporting the Legacy10 campaign?
