Last week's meeting

We had a productive club forum with updates from our international, community service and DEI committees.  Thank you Puran Stevens, Corinne McClintic, Susan Fisher and George Pearce for the reports and leadership.
This week's meeting
We are very excited to welcome Alderman Robin Rue Simmons -  Evanston Reparations Program

Ald. Rue Simmons will speak on Evanston’s reparations program to support affordable housing and housing equity, which will be funded by the first $10 million of Adult Use Cannabis sales tax revenue. The alderman will share what drives her commitment to affordable housing and equity and how RYLA helped her to grow as a young leader. Listeners will have the opportunity to learn how Evanston’s reparation project—the nation’s first local reparations program – will benefit African Americans in recognition of the persistent effects of slavery and the war on drugs

PLEASE NOTE:  We expect a number of guest this week.  We ask members to share guest names with Ben Ivory and Jim Waite in order to be admitted into the ZOOM meeting.  

Other News:
  • We will have our first Monday evening event Wednesday March 3rd.  The founder of the Shorefront Legacy Center, Dino Robinson, will give us a virtual tour of the Shorefront Legacy Center and discuss black history in the North Shore.
  • Due to recent unwelcome ZOOM bombers on club meetings, we are now using the ZOOM waiting room feature.  For each meeting you will now be asked to wait for the host to accept you into the meeting.  Please be patient and be sure to ask if you have any questions.
  • From our District Governor: THE COVID VACCINATION SERIES CONTINUES MONDAY THE 22ND AT NOON  Join us on Facebook Live to hear Dr. James Keller of Advocate Lutheran General Hospital speak on “A Chief Medical Officer’s View of COVID-19”.   If this is anything near as good as the first two sessions with Dr. Stuart Marcus, it’ll be WELL worth your while.   Invite your friends, family, and neighbors.
