Sanctus Martyrs of Faith @ Brownsville Museum of Fine Art

Sanctus Martyrs of Faith @ Brownsville Museum of Fine Art

As my eye peers through the viewfinder of my camera, I’m mindful of my vision before I weigh down on my shutter release. To capture a series of photographs that shows the viewer a glimpse into a spiritual world of the many faces of Christian saints portrayed by model Claudia Marcela Henry. The repertoire of photos I present is a vision that was inspired by classical religious paintings and my perspective as a photographer to capture the majesty and beauty of the lives of Christian saints.

I am a Brownsville native and call this city my home. A photojournalist by day at The Brownsville Herald and an artist by night. Photography has been a constant in my life. There is no greater joy to me then to bring a nostalgic smile to those who view my photographs.

Brownsville Raid Exhibit @ Heritage Museum, Vezzetti Room

Brownsville Raid Exhibit @ Heritage Museum, Vezzetti Room

The Brownsville Raid was an historic event of racial injustice against the 167 Buffalo Soldiers of the 25th Infantry, on August 13, 1906. The 167 Buffalo Soldiers of the 25th Infantry stationed at the Fort Brown were accused of the murdered of a white bartender and a lengthy trial ensued. The matter reached President Theodore Roosevelt, who ultimately dishonorably  discharged the Buffalo Soldiers, even though proof of culpability had not been found. The Buffalo Soldiers were eventually pardoned and honorably discharged in 1972 by President Nixon. the exhibit will include maps, never before seen images of Army / civilian correspondence, military pardon addendum and more. Through the help of Congressman Vela’s office and special research access of the National Archives, we present this unique exhibit.

Dealing with Death by Overdose & Naloxone (Narcan) Training @ UTRGV
Feb 15 all-day
Dealing with Death by Overdose & Naloxone (Narcan) Training @ UTRGV

According to research, the U.S. has nearly 100 people die daily from an overdose which usually involves an opioid such as painkillers or heroin. The Department of Health and Human Services has labeled the problem as an epidemic. Despite research of the number of deaths occurring involving an opioid, there has been no research conducted in the U.S. to help the bereaved families. The workshop will involve and engage professionals how to apply the use of healing art activities to conduct grief work with bereaved families who lost a loved one to an opioid overdose.

In the Naloxone (Narcan) training, professionals will role-play a scenario assessing and assisting individuals who are experiencing symptoms of an opioid overdose and apply the use of Naloxone (Narcan) to reverse those effects and save a life. No medical training required. A certificate of completion will be provided to all participants.

Note: Participants will receive 3 CEUs for attending this workshop.

UTRGV STUDENTS ONLY: UTRGV students have the option of receiving a $15 discount on the fee for this course. Students who take advantage of the discount will not be eligible to receive CEU’s, but will receive a certificate of completion.

Dear Child Advocate,

We are grateful to be able to hold our 2nd Annual HEART FORE KIDS Golf Classic! Please join us again in our efforts to grow and to continue to provide services to the children and families of Cameron and Willacy Counties.

We would like to ask you to remember Monica’s and Maggie’s House and the children in our community that we serve. It would be wonderful if we could eliminate the incidence of child abuse and keep our children safe from harm. Contributions from warm‐hearted, community‐oriented individuals make our work possible, and we need your help.

Each year, countless children in Cameron County and Willacy County suffer from abuse and neglect. Cameron County Children’s Advocacy Centers, Inc. Monica’s House & Maggie’s House ‐operate on the fundamental belief that the best interests of the child victim should be protected as the case proceeds through the investigation, prosecution stages and beyond. Since 1997, Monica’s House and Maggie’s House have helped children by providing a safe haven where they can tell their story while beginning the healing process. Additionally, the staff at Monica’s House and Maggie’s House work closely with local law enforcement officials to ensure that those individuals who have harmed our innocent children are brought to justice. Last year alone, Monica’s House and Maggie’s House provided support, care and assurance to over 1000 children and countless families in Cameron County and Willacy County. While no child deserves to be the victim of abuse, it is our goal to ensure that those who have been affected are given every opportunity to reclaim their lives.

We would like to reach out to our supporters and ask for contributions to help us sustain our centers. With your assistance, Monica’s House and Maggie’s House will continue to offer encouragement and hope to victimized children throughout this county.

Thank you for your generosity. Your support makes a profound difference in the lives of children in Cameron County and Willacy County.
