Retired, multiple-time best-selling and award-winning author, Andrea Dean Van Scoyoc, can now be found filling her time with her many new projects.
Veterinary Client Care Representative and Passionate Animal Advocate, Lisa Polo can be found sharing and networking photos and concerns to help pets in need. Both are Voices for the Voiceless, and are co-founders of the Anti-Surrender Committee, dedicated to helping those who have hit hard times, stay with their beloved pets.
Tonight we are interviewing two graceful, compassionate women who saw a need to help individuals and families and advocate for animals, the SILENT family members in their community. Care and food for beloved pets is a comfort for people in the wake of the multiple stresses caused by rising catastrophic financial hardships that many are experiencing now. For pet owners to know that they don't have to give up their beloved family members when things spiral downward in their lives is a source of peace and reassurance during these hard times. Listen in, call in and if you can help, please do!

MORE INFO ABOUT THIS CONFERENCE:
Please help. I will be representing YOU for Soil and Water in Hillsborough County.
For most of you that know me personally, I have been either unemployed or underemployed since last October. I would like to be able to get to this conference to represent you, learn and most importantly, pass on information I have learned back to you.
I don't need to tell all of you that Soil and Water are our county's most precious resources!
And we need to know what is happening at State and Federal levels.
Gas money and incidental expenditures are needed for entire stay there (Destin, FL).
Every little bit helps! So dig deep!

Dermansky was born in New York City in 1966. She started her career as a sculptor and painter after getting a BFA from Tulane University in 1988. Her sculpture has been exhibited at Socrates Park in Long Island City, and the New York City Percent for Art program awarded her two commissions. Since switching from painting and sculpture to photography in 2004, her photographs have been published internationally in such publications as the Times of London, Der Spiegel, the Guardian, the New York Times, the Washington Post, Newsweek and Time magazine. She is also a regular contributor to The Atlantic’s website where she has published mutli-media stories since 2010.
Her long-term documentary projects include photographing genocide sites around the world, the Louisiana's wetlands, and natural history collections in both private and institutional settings. Her recent photography exhibitions include: “As I See It: Julie Dermansky Documents A World Of Changes,” Paul Robeson Gallery, Rutgers University, 2012; “Haiti, After the Earthquake,” Ogden Museum, New Orleans, LA, 2011; “Memorial Sites: New York to Nairobi,” Center for Architecture, New York City, 2008; “Natural Selections,” Everhart Museum of Natural History, Science and Art, Scranton, PA, 2006; "Natural and Unnatural History" Roberson Museum and Science Center, Binghamton, NY, 2005.
Julie’s interest in social justice started at a young age. Her parents participated in local politics, protests, and marched on Washington with Martin Luther King and raised her and her siblings in Englewood, New Jersey, one of the few multi-racial communities in Bergen County NJ, a suburb of New York City.
At a summer camp at age 11 she read Elie Wiesel’s "Night," and began to question mankind's capacity for evil. Julie marveled at Picasso's “Guernica” at the Museum of Modern Art before she could truly understand it. Her eye for photography was developed through “The Best of Life,” a coffee table photography book that introduced her to the power of photojournalism. Those images informed her way of looking at the world.
In college she started as a history major but quickly recognized that art was her true calling. Antonio Guardi’s work inspired her to work large and create environments for the pubic. In the two projects for New York’s City s Percent for the arts program she created whimsical environments for children.
In 2004 Julie gave up her studio and took off around the world with her first digital camera, working on a project that focused on museums at genocide sites. As her experience behind the camera grew her dream of becoming a photojournalist became a reality through her documentary photography.
