***PEASE SHARE*** My 12yo nephew Ananias is MISSING. He is Autistic and has a Traumatic Brain Injury. SCHENECTADY POLICE DEPARTMENT has blatantly told his mother that they are NOT looking for him even though he is a missing minor. They will tell him to come home IF they see him but they can’t do anything more than that. HE WILL ONLY BE PICKED UP BY THEM IF HE COMMITS A CRIME!!! This is a child who needs to be hospitalized in a mental health unit. Communities all over come together and help when there is a missing autistic child. Autistic children can DIE on their own because they trust the wrong people and are not capable of making safe choices for themselves. Because my nephew comes from Schenectady, and happens to be BLACK, the SPD are more willing to arrest him for committing a crime then to locate a MISSING CHILD!!! They would rather jail a special needs black child than help him. Please share and contact me or his mother Racine Oliver-Reid if you see my nephew!!!
It was a pleasure meeting with the team from the Black Chambers of Commerce. Our experience and the information shared was extremely informative for our growing business. We look forward to building a meaningful professional business relationship.
As the founder of LW Consulting Group, a business that provides various forms of etiquette training and financial education, I had my first member needs assessment meeting with the UpState New York Black Chamber of Commerce. I walked out of yesterday's meeting with one word to describe my experience, INCREDIBLE! The discussion provided me with a new perspective. Things were brought to my attention that I did not consider. I have a new focus and the support of a team that is dedicated to my success. I am not easily impressed, but I was extremely impressed by the effectiveness, professionalism, and my takeaways. The USNYBCC provided materials and a creative attitude that are needed to build a successful business. I look forward to my new journey and follow-up meetings with the USNYBCC. Thanks for the EXCITEMENT infusion!
Great meeting with President Anthony Gaddy!!
