About Unify Against Bulling

The mission of Unify Against Bullying is to bring an end to bullying through the celebration of true diversity. We accomplish this goal by providing grants to those who are in the best position to make a difference; children, parents, teachers and grassroots community organizations.

With the funding and resources, the grants provide, we can show the children of the world; the days of ignoring bullying are over. Instead, we are in a new era where we celebrate our differences and come together as one community. That is why in the Unify movement we say; when we stand together, we stand as one.

Kid Convention 2017 in Boston
What:Kids: It’s your chance to choose. What issues in your community are most important to you? What qualities should candidates running for local office possess? What can we do in our communities to create a better world? It’s up to you to answer these questions at the Institute’s 2017 Kid Convention.

Ahead of November’s municipal elections for mayor, city council, and school board, children and families are invited to join the Institute for a day of special programming to educate youngsters about the importance of local leadership and civic engagement in our democracy. Interactive activities will help kids learn about the legislative process, their local government, and the importance of making their voices heard.

The special Kid Convention programs will be offered three times throughout the day. If you would like to participate in all of the special programs, you can arrive at either 10:30 a.m., 12:30 p.m., or 2:00 p.m. Each session includes the following activities:

What Makes A Good Local Leader? In this interactive game, kids work together in teams in the Institute’s Senate Chamber to discuss the qualities of a good leader and identify important local issues. The kids will see their ideas come to life as actors become the candidates the kids envisioned and tackle the issues they suggested for debate. Kids and their families will then vote for the candidate that best fits their ideals of a good local leader.

Political Poster Project: Local Leadership. Throughout the day, young people are invited to create posters illustrating an issue that is important to them. Kids will be encouraged to think about the many forms leadership can take and identify a leader they know in their school or community. Kids can design their ideal candidates based on good leadership qualities, or even design a campaign poster for their own run for office.

Future Senator. The Future Senator program introduces 5 through 11 year-old visitors to the legislative process. Featuring a segment from WGBH’s Fetch! with Ruff Ruffman, the program introduces young people to an issue relevant to them: whether the United States government should require a longer school day. The program concludes with a vote in the Senate Chamber.

Cast Your Ballots. While kids may not be able to vote in this year’s elections, they can cast their ballots during Kid Convention in the Institute’s voting booth. This activity will introduce kids to the voting process by giving them the opportunity to vote on issues that affect them in their school and community.

Please allow time for check-in upon arrival; we recommend arriving 10-15 minutes before the three session start times at 10:30 a.m., 12:30 p.m. and 2:00 p.m.

Harry Kokkinis of Table Talk Pies to tell company’s comeback story - Springfield
What:Harry Kokkinis, owner of Table Talk Pies in Worcester, will be the keynote speaker at the Springfield Regional Chamber of Commerce Business@Breakfast on November 1. The event will be held at The Colony Club, 1500 Main Street, Springfield from 7:15- 9 a.m., sponsored by TD Bank and United Personnel with coffee compliments of Bright Nights.

The Kokkinis family began selling pies out of the back of a horse cart in 1924. The family business continued until the company was sold in the 1980s. A series of ownership changes and poor corporate management resulted in the closing of the Table Talk Pie factory in1984.

Kokkinis’ father Christo Cocaine (an Americanized version of the family name) bought back the company assets a year later and shifted the Table Talk Pie strategy to dominating the snack market. Today, supermarket aisles are filled with 4-inch snack-sized Table Talk pies in a variety of standard and season flavors. The company then took the next step and returned to making 8-inch pies. The company now bakes three million 4-inch pies and close to 500,000 8-ich pies a week in addition to private label pies.
In the years since Table Talk Pies was saved, it has positioned itself for explosive growth, building a new 50,000 square-foot factory and bringing back its iconic retail store, both in Worcester, where the company is headquartered. It had been 20 years since Table Talk operated a retail store.

Table Talk’s 8-inch salted caramel apple and 4-inch pecan pies recently won the company two National Pie Championship awards, and earlier this year Kokkinis accepted a “Business of the Year” award from the Worcester Regional Chamber of Commerce.

Kokkinis will tell Table Talk’s comeback story - how the company returned to its roots, expanded, and become part of Worcester’s renaissance.

In addition, the Chamber will recognize Christine Maiwald as the new Executive Director of Unify Against Bullying.

Business@Breakfast is a monthly series, which pays tribute to individuals, businesses and organizations for major contributions to civic and economic growth and for actions which reflect honor on the region.

Tickets are $25.00 for Springfield Regional Chamber members in advance ($30 at the door) and $35 for general admission in advance ($40 at the door). Reservations are suggested. Contact Jessica Hill

A political refugee from Bosnia, Becar is the author of Childhood Interrupted: From Bosnia to America. She was 11 years old when tragedy struck her life in war-torn Bosnia. Striving for a better future for her family, Becar translated from Bosnian to English for various journalists to earn money for her father upon his release from a concentration camp. Compelling and captivating, Childhood Interrupted is her diary from that time, now translated into English. It is a true story of strength, determination, and hope.

Becar, a philanthropist and businesswoman, will discuss her journey from war-torn Bosnia to Western Massachusetts. She has persevered over massive obstacles including prejudice, poverty and assimilation into a new culture. Becar has been featured on talk shows and CBS News and to talk about her story and her core values of education, humanity and positive attitude.

She and her family came to the United States with one bag of clothes, donated by the International Red Cross. She graduated from the University of Connecticut with a BA in International Affairs and also earned a Master’s Degree in Political Science and Government from the university.

Bryann Trejo Kingdom Muzic Revival - New London
What:On November 18th, 2017 Bryann Trejo of Kingdom Muzic will be coming to New London, Connecticut to spread the LOVE of Jesus Christ. In an effort to help make this event possible we would love to partner with you! My wife and I had were drawn to Bryann Trejo through his testimony and the messages in his music, but mostly because of his heart for revival. Devoted husband and father of beautiful children, Bryann admits his first ministry is his family. (Our goal would be to bring his entire family here with him, if we are able to raise the funds.) He’s a man who walks his talk and who we believe, carries a timely message for the body of Christ. This is why we want to do what we can to support the work Bryann Trejo and Kingdom Muzic are doing. New London, CT needs to know that they are not without hope. It’s time to wake up, New England … we believe that God has given us a vision for this region and your donation will help us in our endeavor to bring hope to this region. This isn’t just entertainment.

Meet Bryann Trejo... Bryann “Kingdom Minded” Trejo’s story is one not only one of God’s overcoming power but also of His redeeming grace. Born in Corpus Cristi, TX, Bryann had a troubled childhood, to say the least. To say he made some bad choices would be an understatement. This troubled path reached it’s tipping point when Bryann was charged with 2 counts of attempted murder. It was during this very dark time in Bryann’s life, while awaiting trial, when he made the choice to give his life over to God . What was to be a 30 year prison sentence was reduced to 7 years plus time served. Bryann was then released on good behavior after serving only 4 years in prison. Shortly after Bryann was released from prison, came another traumatic blow. Bryann got word that his identical twin brother, Ryan Trejo (also a Christian Rapper), was murdered. Bryann came face to face with the truest testing of his faith and found himself challenged as thoughts of revenge clenched his mind in his excruciating pain. But, with God’s help, Bryann overcame this and instead of seeking revenge, he chose to love the murderers of his brother. This is where Bryann’s choice to press into God for comfort, healing and forgiveness resulted in the catapulting of what we now know as Kingdom Muzic.

Hope for Today
Don’t be selfish; don’t live to make a good impression on others. Be humble, thinking of others as better than yourself. Don’t just think about your own affairs, but be interested in others, too, and in what they are doing.
Philippians 2:3-4 TLB
