Junior League of Tampa Provisional Class Project in Full Swing at Mary Lees House

Tampa, FL (PRWEB) March 5, 2010

Spring is shaping up to be a very busy season at Mary Lees House, thanks to the efforts of the 2009-2010 Provisional Class of The Junior League of Tampa.

The provisional class, made up of more than 145 women, has been working hard on a variety of projects to help support Mary Lees House and the non-profit agencies housed within it. Volunteer efforts kicked off last month when The Junior League of Tampas Sunshine Committee members delivered lunch and other goodies to recognize the hard work and dedication of the staff of Mary Lees House and its partner agencies.

The Provisionals have added an extra level of service not only to children and families but also to the employees who serve them, said Lisa Colen, Executive Director of Mary Lees House. Their energy and enthusiasm shine throughout this building and have certainly made our first year in service a memorable one.

Upcoming Tampa events include:

A book fair and literacy workshop from 10 a.m.-noon at the Town N Country Family Support and Resource Center on Saturday, March 6th
A work day to transform the front porch of Mary Lees House into a more welcoming, tranquil environment for children and families
A luncheon for The Junior League of Tampa Sustaining Members to learn more about the Guardian Ad Litem Program. This will be held at The Plaza on Harbor Island from 11:30 a.m.- 1 p.m. on Thursday, March 18th.
A literacy workshop from 10 a.m.-noon at the North Tampa Resource Center on Saturday, March 27th.
Celebrating Children: A Party at Mary Lees House, an event geared toward raising awareness of child abuse in the Tampa Bay area while giving children a chance to enjoy a fun-filled day with carnival activities on Saturday, April 24th.

Mary Lees House, a childrens protection and advocacy center that opened in late 2008, serves children who have been removed from their homes due to suspected cases of abuse and neglect. Instead of having to take the already-traumatized child to the doctor, then the police and then to court, Mary Lees House has all those services and more under one roof. Funding for The JLT provisional class to assist with Mary Lees House was secured through a generous donation from the Eckerd Family Foundation.

Assemblymember Mary Hayashi Joins Commemoration of First Perinatal and Maternal Mental Health Awareness Day


Sacramento, CA (PRWEB) May 07, 2012

Assemblymember Mary Hayashi (D-Hayward) joined with leading womens health advocates to raise awareness about mental health at the first Perinatal and Maternal Mental Health Awareness Day at the State Capitol. The event, in recognition of May as Perinatal Mental Health and Maternal Depression Awareness Month, featured a morning press conference and an expert panel discussion.

Maternal depression is common and treatable, but still heavily stigmatized. We are letting families know that help is available, and that getting help is okay, stated Assemblymember Hayashi. No new mother should have to feel isolated or ashamed by depression. Todays event and all of the dedicated advocates involved are working to make that a reality.

Perinatal Mental Health and Maternal Depression Awareness Month was established by ACR 105 in 2010. The resolution called for the state and advocacy groups to explore ways to improve women’s access to mental healthcare, to facilitate increased awareness about perinatal depression, and to improve the availability of effective screening, treatment and community support services. In 2011, the Legislature passed ACR 53 to further stress the need for prevention and raise awareness about risk factors and triggers for perinatal depression.

A new California Maternal Mental Health Collaborative began in September 2011 to address the directives of the resolutions, and served as the host of todays events. Other speakers included Raul Martinez, surviving husband of Kelly Abraham Martinez, who died by suicide from postpartum depression and inspired ACR 53. Dr. Judy Mikacich spoke on behalf of the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists.

Its estimated that between 10 to 20 percent of women experience depression either during pregnancy or in the first 12 months postpartum. Most will go undiagnosed or untreated due to stigma and lack of information, as well as the lack of standardized screening by providers. Untreated depression can have detrimental effects on both the mother and child, including increased risk for maternal suicide and impaired childhood development.

Assemblymember Hayashi is the Chair of the Business, Professions, and Consumer Protection Committee and serves the 18th Assembly District, which includes San Leandro, Hayward, Dublin, most of Castro Valley and Pleasanton, and a portion of Oakland, as well as the unincorporated areas of Ashland, Cherryland, San Lorenzo and Sunol.

Assemblywoman Mary Hayashi Promotes Yes on Prop. 35


Hayward, CA (PRWEB) October 29, 2012

Assemblywoman Mary Hayashi (D-Hayward) is encouraging California voters to support Proposition 35, the Californians Against Sexual Exploitation Act.

Prop. 35 raises awareness about the crisis of child trafficking in California, and gives voters the opportunity to take a stand against those who abuse and exploit children for financial gain, stated Assemblywoman Mary Hayashi. This is a critical human rights issue, and we need our laws to reflect our values. Prop. 35 will provide for critically-needed, stronger penalties and more law enforcement support in this horrific industry.

The United States Department of Justice reports that upwards of 300,000 American children are at risk of commercial trafficking exploitation, with most of the children sold into slavery being between the ages of 12 to 14 years old. The FBI states that three of the highest child trafficking areas in the nation are in California: Los Angeles, San Francisco and San Diego. Yet, California stands as one of the states with the fewest protections for victims of human trafficking.

Prop. 35 will increase criminal penalties for trafficking of minors, from the current three to eight years in prison to sentences of five years to life. It will require convicted human traffickers to register as sex offenders, and require criminal fines from convicted traffickers to pay for services to help victims.

In addition, the Act will mandate training for law enforcement on human trafficking. California voters will decide on the initiative in the November 6, 2012 election.

Prop. 35 is being sponsored by California Against Slavery, a non-partisan, grassroots human rights organization dedicated to ending human trafficking, and the Safer California Foundation, which is dedicated to supporting efforts to protect Californians from all forms of criminal exploitation.

Assemblywoman Mary Hayashi serves the 18th Assembly District, which includes San Leandro, Hayward, Dublin, most of Castro Valley and Pleasanton, and a portion of Oakland, as well as the unincorporated areas of Ashland, Cherryland, San Lorenzo and Sunol.
