Paul Butler: Profiled on My Own Street
 
09:00
In May 2011, The Atlantic Philanthropies and The New Press (http://thenewpress.com/) hosted a discussion about racial profiling in the United States. Racial profiling stigmatises and criminalises people of colour from as early as their pre-teens, violates the rights and civil liberties of innocent people, and has devastating consequences on entire communities. The fascinating panel included former litigator and law professor Michelle Alexander, author of The New Jim Crow, and former federal prosecutor and law professor Paul Butler, author of Let's Get Free: A Hip-Hop Theory of Justice. Kent Hutchinson and Justin Coello, two young men who have been racially profiled in their neighbourhoods, also gave firsthand accounts of their experiences. In this video excerpt, Paul Butler talks about being racially profiled in his neighbourhood and on his front porch.

Former Atlantic Philanthropies President and CEO Gara LaMarche served as the prosecution, and Ralph R. Smith, Executive Vice President of the Annie E. Casey Foundation, played the role of the defense attorney. The sentence, if found guilty, was loss of philanthropy's specialised tax status. Ultimately, the jury was hung in its verdict, but leaned in favour of the prosecution by 10-2. You can watch the full trial at: http://www.cof.org/events/conferences/2011Annual/trial.cfm

Pensioners' Parliament: Strengthening Voice in Northern Ireland
 
04:09
Between 2005 and 2035, the proportion of Northern Ireland’s population of citizens older than 65 is expected to double from 13.5 per cent to 27 per cent. As a result, campaigning for policies that support healthy ageing and that push government to be responsive to the needs of older people is vital. The Northern Ireland Pensioners' Parliament, launched by Age Sector Platform in 2011, allows older people from across Northern Ireland to have their say on the issues that matter to them. Each year, Age Sector Platform members elect representatives from across the community to participate in a two-day regional parliament, debating policies with government and with lawmakers and defining older people’s campaign issues for the year ahead. With the Pensioners’ Parliament, Northern Ireland now has a strong and articulate lobby of older people.

Rise to the Top: The University of Limerick & The Atlantic Philanthropies
 
04:09
A chance meeting between Chuck Feeney, founding chairman of The Atlantic Philanthropies, and Ed Walsh, the head of a then-fledgling higher education institute in Limerick, led to Atlantic’s initial philanthropic investments in Ireland in the late 1980s. At the University of Limerick, among many other investments, Atlantic funded the first Olympic-sized swimming pool in the country, a state-of-the-art library and new student accommodations, and purchased land to create an entirely new campus bridging both shores of the River Shannon. Expansion on the north shore included the University Arena and the Irish World Academy of Music and Dance. Since 1988, Atlantic has invested nearly $180 million (€140 million) in the University of Limerick, making it the largest single recipient of the foundation's funding in Ireland.

Almost 20 years after Duane Edward Buck was convicted of capital murder, his siblings — Marvin, Phyllis, and Monique — reflect on their brother’s resilience in the face of an extraordinary injustice: a piece of explicitly racist testimony from a psychologist that likely sent him to Death Row. After years of setbacks and poor work by court-appointed attorneys, Mr. Buck’s family and legal team from the Texas Defender Service and, later, the NAACP Legal Defense Fund prepare for what is possibly their last chance to give him the fair sentencing trial he deserves. Our Brother’s Keeper retraces the long path Mr. Buck’s case has taken over the years, from the poverty-stricken Third Ward in Houston, all the way to a ruling at the Supreme Court of the United States, and ultimately to a new sentence of life in prison.

Big Telly Theater Company
 
04:04
Entering Cregagh Community Centre in Belfast, one could be forgiven for assuming that this facility would offer little more than typical leisure activities to its older citizens. However, 12 men and women, all over age 65 and from different backgrounds, came together for an engaging, uplifting two-hour workshop that ranged from role-playing and storytelling to characterisations and mime. Laughter underpins the structured method of engaging the participants in the Big Telly Theatre Companys Spring Chickens initiative. This unique two-year programme focuses on creative expression and engagement within the older community through workshops in sheltered accommodations, residential homes, day-care centres, older peoples groups and homes in rural areas. The initiative will culminate in October 2009 with five professionally produced shows performed simultaneously across Northern Ireland. Spring Chickens challenges perceptions to inspire others to see the older generation as active community members.
