Why We Worked for Indigenous Peoples' Day in Oberlin

Why We Worked for Indigenous Peoples' Day in Oberlin

January 1, 2018 | In 1992, Berkley, CA, became the first city in the United States to reject Columbus Day in favor of Indigenous Peoples Day. Twenty-five years later, as of Oct. 9, Time reports a list of 55 cities which have done the same—as well as three universities, three states, two cities which celebrate both, and South Dakota, which replaced Columbus Day with Native American Day in 1990. More communities are considering the same, including Washington, DC itself. As of October 2017, Oberlin, OH, is on the list, and Cindi and Jeriel Byron-Dixon can tell you why. Read more »

La agonía y la intensidad de este año han llegado con giros inesperados y sorpresas asombrosas en un camino muy difícil que a fines del 2016, solamente anticipaba más dolor, polarización y violencia en los Estados Unidos y en todo el mundo. ¡Aquí es donde yace el verdadero milagro!

An Update from the Evangelical Seminary of Puerto Rico

December 11, 2017 | With Hurricane Maria on September 20, we entered a different level of emergency as whole communities, communications, water, electrical network, as well as transportation avenues were completely wiped out in the whole island. Without electricity and water, with blocked streets, fallen bridges, etc., and telecommunications down (only 240 towers were standing from 1,600), 3.4 millions of people were left without communication and rapid response from governmental agencies was greatly hindered. The Seminary was a site of utmost destruction with fallen tress blocking all entrances and debris all over. The campus, chapel, and student housing suffered the most damage. The water affected offices and classrooms but we were most concerned over humidity in the library endangering books and treasured archives. For now, all the classes are being given on Saturdays at the Interamerican Metro University facilities while we work out cleaning up and repairing our campus.
