TO: NAMRC Members

In keeping with Dr. Temple’s appeal to start conversations that inspire change by building cross-cultural alliances, we share this chart, Becoming Anti-Racist chart was inspired by the work of Dr. Ibram X. Kendi and reflects his personal journey toward becoming anti- racist. First, we must define prejudice, discrimination, and racism:

  • Prejudice refers to irrational or unjustifiable negative emotions or evaluations toward persons from other social groups and it is primary determinant of discriminatory behavior (Fiske, Gilbert, & Gardner 2010).
  • Discrimination refers to inappropriate treatment of people of their actual or perceived group membership and may include both overt and covert behaviors, including microaggressions or indirect or subtle behaviors (e.g., comments) that reflect negative attitudes or beliefs about a non-majority group.
  • Racism refers to prejudice or discrimination against individuals or groups based on beliefs about one’s own racial superiority or the belief that race reflects inherent differences in attributes and capabilities. (Bailey, et al, 2017; Fiske, et al., 2010).

We encourage you to embark on your own personal journey with friends, family, and colleagues by discussing the different zones and taking action to reach and develop the growth zone.

Position Statement from President Michell Temple

Position Statement from President Michell Temple

Dear NAMRC Members:

The National Association of Multicultural Rehabilitation Concerns (NAMRC) wants to firmly state that the racially motivated violence against Black people starting with the most recent events involving George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and Ahmaud Arbery in addition to the tens of thousands of Blacks who have lost their lives to COVID-19 is unacceptable. Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. said it best in 1963 from behind the walls of a Birmingham jail,  “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly.”

As a Black woman, President of the Association, and as the voice of the Board, I want you to know that I refuse to make sense of these senseless acts. The systemic societal issues that undergird our current situation reaffirm my commitment to engaging in uncomfortable conversations with civility.  I urge you to have conversations with diverse groups about these injustices to inspire change through the building of cross-cultural alliances.

More to come.

Sincerest regards,

Michell Temple, EdD, CRC, LPC/MHSP

President

January 2019 – December 2020

RSA Grant for Virginia Commonwealth University

Official Logo of Virginia Commonwealth Univeristy 1938

FUNDING AVAILABLE!

Virginia Commonwealth University is recruiting qualified candidates, including those with disabilities and from other minority backgrounds, with our new RSA traineeships in Rehabilitation and Mental Health Counseling. Would you be so kind as to forward the following message to anybody you think may be able to help us recruit the most worthy candidates for these traineeships? Please call me at 804-687-2890 or email me at creid@vcu.edu with any questions. Thanks!

Please disseminate:
Through two successful grant proposals, VCU’s Department of Rehabilitation Counseling now has available a limited number of traineeships sponsored by the Rehabilitation Services Administration (RSA).

Students funded by those traineeships commit to “employment payback” of working for two years for a state vocational rehabilitation agency (or nonprofit or other organization contracting with the state agency to provide services to vocational rehabilitation clients) in exchange for every full-time equivalent year of funding.

So, if a student is funded for two years of full-time study, that student would need to work in qualifying employment for four years to satisfy the payback obligation. There is also an option for financial repayment, as if the traineeship were a student loan, if the trainee decides not to work in qualifying employment.

We have two different RSA training projects: one is for students who seek to become vocational rehabilitation counselors, and the other is for students who seek to specialize in working in vocational rehabilitation settings with people who have mental health challenges.

Dr. Chris Reid (creid@vcu.edu) is the project director for the vocational rehabilitation counselor traineeship grant; Dr. Chris Wagner (ccwagner@vcu.edu) is the project director for the mental health specialty traineeship grant.

If you or another qualified applicant that you know are interested in either traineeship, please contact the respective project director, as soon as possible.

With appreciation,
Chris Reid
