Sing in the New Year!

On behalf of the entire GLIDE family, Happy New Year!

Start the year off right and sing along with the Women’s Center’s Healing Through Negro Spirituals Group. Check out this video of a recent session:

Every week, the Women’s Center offers their Healing Through Negro Spirituals Support Group. The group relates the history and experiences of African Americans in this country to the experience and culture of African American women today in order to facilitate healing from deeply entrenched experiences of violence and oppression. Talilah Douglas, Women’s Center Domestic Violence Specialist, shares, “Many of the women we work with know what it feels like to be disrespected, isolated, beat, to be devalued, treated less than, to have their dignity taken away. Healing Through Negro Spirituals allows them to heal in ways they never imagined, and walk away feeling empowered.”

A retro photo of Joyce Hayes, a true GLIDE hero, who so strongly believed in supporting children and providing them with stability, education and #unconditionallove. GLIDE regrets to tell our community that Joyce Hayes, an icon in our history and childcare program, passed away on Tuesday, 5/23/2017. Her life, love and legacy will not be forgotten. 
Please take a moment to read this tribute to our beloved "Joy": glidesf.wordpress.com/2017/05/26/in-memory-of-joyce-hayes-the-heartbeat-of-glides-fycc/ Shout-out @blueshieldofca volunteers! Our Harm Reduction Team always needs people to help assemble safer injection kits. Distributing these kits to our community members who inject drugs greatly reduces the spread of Hep C and HIV. It's about #publichealth and recognizing the dignity and human rights of ALL people living in our city! #harmreduction #cleansharps
