Jamie Korn - Child Abuse Intervention and Prevention

Jamie Korn from the Family & Children's Center (FCC) will share information about their early intervention and prevention work being done regarding child abuse in our community!   Every April is dedicated to creating awareness about child abuse.
Each year, many children have their lives altered by the devastating effects of child abuse.  Stepping Stones and Matty's Place, FCC program sites, are a safe and comfortable place where children are interviewed about possible abuse and neglect.  The experienced staff will work to put the children at ease and make them feel comfortable, all while significantly reducing the trauma and stress experienced by the children and their families during the investigative phase. 
The Rotary Club of La Crosse - Downtown Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) committee is considering facilitating an online/virtual (ZOOM) book club fellowship focused on the topics of diversity, equity, and inclusion. Please complete the following short survey to indicate your interest in participating.
Rotarians, our website sponsor this month is Cafetofarmers.  I just ordered some coffee and smells amazing!  Edgar delivered it right to my door. I think this is a great gift. I personally like that he is buying this directly from the coffee farmers so that they get paid better for their product.  
To order, go to this page.  If you want to pay cash or check, you can click money order and then pay when Edgar gets to your house.


Here is the update of the project from Dean Dickinson.....
Our club paid donations stand at $36,575.  The total for all clubs is $96,360.  We are in a position to submit the global grant as soon as the International Partner joins us.  There is still time to donate. All donations in excess of the grant requirement will be earmarked for vehicle/equipment upgrades and replacement and maintenance. Thank you to all who have supported this project.
The Brain Game

"The Brain Game" is a user-friendly educational guide which explains to parents why and how their child is learning and developing. Additionally, the book includes specific activities, songs, and suggested behaviors that parents can engage in to help foster their child's intellectual and social development. 

The Brain Game was born when the Director of the Wisconsin Council on Children and Families spoke to the Rotary Club of La Crosse, WI. She was excited to spread the word of new, cutting-edge research into early child brain development. More than ever before, scientists discovered that proper stimulation of children in the first three years could play a huge role in growing a healthy brain.

During this meeting we'll learn more about The Brain Game, along with some exciting new developments around it.

Hope Restores & Tashyra Jackson
Hope Restores & Tashyra Jackson

My name is Tashyra Jackson, I have been a resident of the la crosse community for 21 years. Originally, I am a Madison, Wisconsin transplant. I am the third oldest of eight children and I moved here with my family during my junior year of high school. We have been calling this our home ever since. 

I received my bachelor's degree from Viterbo university, where I studied business and psychology.  I have a child that is currently attending elementary school in the area and my oldest who is out of school now, has done all her schooling in the La Crosse area as well. We have shared generations of our experiences over the years and each of our stories are all too similar.


I am the Director of Operations and Co-founder of Hope Restores, a resource center for African Americans. I got into this line of work because I am passionate helping people and I am passionate about equality. 

As the years have gone by, I have realized there is so much work to do and we are so far from where we need to be. If we are going to experience equality in this area it is necessary to consider all the connecting pieces in order to truly grasp the big picture.  I am an advocate for my family and many other people in the La Crosse community. 

It is my belief that courageous conversations need to be had in the schools, at work, in the churches and all other places where there is an opportunity to connect and learn from one another. Most importantly, we all need to be proactive about being part of the conversation and then challenge our capacity to truly listen with the goal of understanding.
