This is a localized security cooperative for providing non-partisan immediate protection for at-risk areas by qualified peer-to-peer participants. Such a program would act as a "first response" triage space for harsh social conditions. Both participants and victims are given access to locally or onsite produced food, care and rehabilitation in spa-like environments for facilitating a healing from personal tragedies like trauma, rape, abuse, war crimes, and human trafficking offenses. These environments include well-designed spaces for learning about council, peace culture, empathy training, restorative justice, therapy, emotional literacy, the human potential movement, career training, small business skills, Aikido, Reiki, Yoga and meditation. Further research spaces are available for re-imagining a more efficient method of preventing trauma in the first place.
For example, there was an incident where women were engaged in the sex trade only because the local cattle kept consuming their crops. Those crops were used to provide income for them and their children and the solution which prevented the need to sell their bodies was a simple fence to keep the animals away from their income-producing crops. Simple measures like these are an example of leg-up versus hand-out. Mama Bear as a program would be a local community space to engage ways in which small scale justice like this can have a big impact for the better.
The other reason for these spaces being made available to a community on certain days is to express compassion on a peer-to-peer community scale. Economically viable self-care spaces are a way to disrupt patterns of fight or flight. In fact, the fight or flight experiment was done on women and a third response was discovered beyond fight or flight...the third response was to secure and nurture.
Thus was inspired the title for Mama Bear. Not only can the mothers of animals be fierce forces to reckon with but mother-consciousness can respond with the ability to secure and nurture in the midst of chaos. And as expressed above, such a program would be a non-violent expression of wrathful compassion on behalf of the western woman. There is a growing anger that has a rightful place among women in the first world countries which arises to say this is not okay anymore, this will not happen to the children of this Earth and I don't care which country it's happening in. Period.
Such an inner transition arrives from a position of those are not simply "her" children but rather those are OUR BABIES. The babies of this Earth which have the right to grow up in an environment of loving as we evolve to awaken to our unity.
Victims would have their stories documented if they desired with the intended hopes that one day we would need museums to remember what it was like before we were unified as a species. Council and restorative justice areas could be made for the rehabilitation of offenders and perpetrators who desire to make amends.
Perpetrators can serve time in a separate location by their own choice for a number of years while being provided simple living and an opportunity to get an education, ascertain a trade, work a homestead, and or start a business. These rehabilitated offenders would earn their stay as well as make a profit in the creation of sold online commodities which would further fund the care and rehabilitation of victims.

Small business skills, makerspaces, gardens, DIY goods and commodities markets would be available for self-sufficiency for victims and accessible to a local community. Similar skills for self-sufficiency would be available for the rehabilitation of offenders such that poverty cannot seed more violence and indignity again.
"Peacemaking doesn't mean passivity. It is the act of interrupting injustice without mirroring injustice, the act of disarming evil without destroying the evildoer, the act of finding a third way that is neither fight nor flight but the careful arduous pursuit of reconciliation and justice. It is about a revolution of Love that is big enough to set both the oppressed and the oppressors free."
