  • Dennis H. Jones Living Well Network Mental Health Breakfats

    Feb 26th, 2019
    7:30am - 10:00am
    Hilton Memphis

    After surviving the Yarnell Hill Wildfire in Arizona and an unfathomable loss of 19 of his fellow firefighters in 2013, Brendan McDonough suffered from bouts of deep depression and intractable Post-Traumatic Stress. McDonough will share his story of struggle and redemption during the annual Dennis H. Jones Living Well Network Breakfast on Tuesday, February 26 at the Hilton Memphis.

    McDonough was on the verge of becoming a hopeless, inveterate heroin addict when he, for the sake of his young daughter, decided to turn his life around. He enlisted in the Granite Mountain Hotshots, a team of elite firefighters based in Prescott, Arizona. On June 30, 2013, while McDonough served as lookout, the Hotshots confronted a freak 3,000 degree inferno in nearby Yarnell, Arizona. The relentless firestorm ultimately trapped his hotshot brothers, tragically killing all 19 of them within minutes. Nationwide, it was the greatest loss of firefighter lives since the 9/11 attacks.

    Following the Breakfast, attendees are invited to participate in one of three breakout sessions:

    • Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder: Recognition, Current Treatment and Ways to Offer Support
    • Trauma Informed Care: The Journey to becoming a Trauma Informed Community
    • The Importance of Self Care for Physical, Emotional and Spiritual Resilience

  • Memphis Midsouth DSA Free Brake light Clinic

    Mar 2nd, 2019
    1:00pm - 3:00pm
    Caritas Village, 2509 Harvard Ave.

    Memphis Midsouth DSA is hosting a brake light clinic March 2nd at Caritas Village from 1pm to 3pm.  We will be installing brake lights: parts and labor are all free.  The Democratic Socialists of America have been hosting these brake light clinics nationwide to support our local communities and to bring attention to issues of police violence.  In the words of Kaitlin Marone of NOLA DSA:

    "The most dangerous thing about having a brake light out is probably the threat of state violence.

    We did not change brake lights because we thought people could not do it themselves. We didn’t give the supplies for free because we thought people couldn’t afford them. We did not conceive of this project as charity. The Democratic Socialist project requires that we address race, gender, ability, and class oppression as they exist, bound inextricably together...

    It is like mutual aid in that we are offering a service to help people meet basic needs so that they may be slightly more empowered to live a life beyond the isolating personal struggle to survive. It is direct action in that we are... declaring our intention to protect people from state violence at the hands of the police...

    The work and the message amplify each other."
