The Kids League Celebrates its Two Year Anniversary with an Annual Gala in New York City

The Kids League (TKL) celebrates its 2-year anniversary at an annual gala event on Monday, November 28 at West 83rd in New York City. TKL has been busy planning amazing programs and workshops for underserved communities and kids in New York City. The goal is to continue to enable kids to the arts and culture the City has to offer and also expose them to new experiences. Through the organization, they continue to encourage and promote the exercise of a healthy mind, body and spiritual growth, while instilling self- empowerment and awareness to kids between the ages of 4-18 years old.

The annual TKL Gala raises monies to support the programs and workshops for TKL participants and tickets can be purchased for $100. Please email [email protected] for more information.

“Paying it forward gives me the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of others. The Kids League has a proven track record of success and with the help of the community, corporate sponsors and dedicated support staff, we will continue to change the world, one kid at a time,” says Surayya Barbee, The Kids League Executive Director.

This year’s event will be hosted by Black Enterprise Magazine’s Daron Pressley and the art exhibit will be curated by Mashonda Tifrere. The illustrious list of honorees this year are Tamika D. Mallory (Civil Rights Leader), Rolanda Telesford (Community Activist), Jerry Migdol (Friends of Public School Harlem), Anthony Wells (President, SSEU Local 371), Dr. Victor Seltzer (Project Redirect) and Topeka Sam (President, The LOHM).

    Why hasn't the U.S. ratify CEDAW yet?

    President Carter sent CEDAW to the U.S. Senate for advice and consent in 1980. It remains in the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations. The Senate has held hearings on CEDAW five times in the past 25 years but failed each time to bring the treaty to a vote on the floor. Why?
    Conservative organizations, such as the Home School Legal Defense Associationand Concerned Women for America, vehemently oppose the ratification of all human rights treaties. They insist that human rights treaties violate American sovereignty. Thirty-eight Republican senators demonstrated this last December, when they refused to join their more moderate colleagues in ratifying the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.
    CEDAW establishes the moral, civic and political equality of women and protects women's right to be free from discrimination and violence. Thanks to CEDAW, these values have diffused around the world. 
    Conservative critics are wrong when they claim that CEDAW reflects radical feminist views. In fact, a Republican woman, Nixon appointee Patricia Hutar, persuaded the United Nations to draft CEDAW. On January 30, 1974, President Nixon called for the U.S. government to commemorate International Women's Year at all levels.

    Has anyone used an air fryer?

    Top Answer

    At first glance, deep fryers and air fryers seem quite similar. Both give regular food (such as veggies or pieces of meat) a delicious taste and crunchy exterior. However, the method a deep fryer uses (dunking food into a large amount of hot oil) is much different from that of an air fryer, which coats food with a little bit of oil then blasts it with hot air. If you love traditional fried food, the deep fryer could be your best bet. If you’re a bit more health conscious and want to achieve similar results without entirely giving up that distinctive fried taste and texture, an air fryer could be the optimal choice.
