 A letter From the Chair 

 Hi Members, 

We're facing some interesting times in this country and it is clear that many of you are frustrated and eager to take action.  This newsletter offers you some options.
A word of caution - TTN is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization and is thus limited in the types of political actions it can support. However, as individual women who happen to be members of TTN, we can support anything we want. Thus, we've formed a Civic Action Special Interest Group made up of TTN women who want to make an impact either individually or as a group. While I think all TTNers support women's rights and non-discrimination of all types, this SIG reflects the views of only the individual women who belong to it.
I urge every NYC Chapter member to follow her heart and do whatever she needs in order to sleep at night.

We CAN make a difference!    And don't forget to...

Enjoy Your Day,
Barbara Alpern

There were already two news-oriented discussion Special Interest Groups (SIGs),  but this was a different phenomenon. Members didn't want to just talk; they wanted to...    Read More

Getting Involved:  Interview with Councilwoman Helen RosenthalHelen_R  
By Betty Rauch

Helen Rosenthal, a very effective Council Member, was elected in 2013 to represent the 6th City Council district. Wh en   we spoke she remembered having previously addressed TTN members and was all the more interested in sharing the most effective way for TTNers to get involved in civic action.
In talking about how people could be more engaged in the politic al process, Rosenthal commented how "New Yorkers take issues very seriously. They want to be engaged an d find ways to effect change. 

After the election, so many people came into my office asking 'What can I do?'"   Read More
