Review for Palante Harlem Inc, New York, NY, USA
Elsia, the founder of Palante, is a classic example of a great leader, who leads by example, always quick to give credit where credit is due. She takes no credit for the victories on behalf of renters she organizes, applauding and publicly praising the efforts of those who charge home the wins from the front lines. I wish there were a Palante in every borough of NYC; it would seal fair housing for many more if an organization like or extension of Palante were a voice of housing rights throughout the city. It would also be great to be closer to Elsia & Palante, so that other organizations could learn from their example of how a non profit should be run. Not least of all, Elsia has always been there as a 'long distance' contact for feedback and advice, no matter how busy she is. Because of her, there's no doubt other great leaders are growing within Palante as well.
Review for Women's Enews, New York, NY, USA
There should be more attention to Women's enews because it tells the truth without hype or distorting the facts. The only time this happens is when the facts are not known by a respective author at any given time, who still does his or her best to record their stories as accurately as possible. Womens Enews is not just for women; no one can be disconnected from women, especially children. In other words, the topics covered in Womens enews are relevant to families and all populations whose lives women touch. I can't think of anyone this leaves out in terms of truthful and current journalism that's timely and as accurate as possible. The more exposure these issues get, the better.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
Its accurate reports regarding women in the courts on both sides of the bench, the true stories of what goes on in our country's courtrooms is stranger than fiction. Regular news does not represent how women are regarded in the courts, by other women who either do not know the impact of their actions, or think they are untouchable.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Change the name or format so that its truth in journalism were better and more appropriately exposed.
