TTN National Anti-Racism Project:  Resources for Change

This project has been initiated in response to the tragic events of the summer and the outpouring of interest by our members in identifying and understanding the effects of racism in this country. We begin this work by identifying resources and tools to educate ourselves in deep and meaningful ways so we can become allies in the struggle for equality and equity.
 
This Resource Center provides a starting point for TTN and our members to listen to and connect with an array of diverse voices and perspectives, to discover and learn from a history and life experience that may be different from ours, and finally to identify ways to impact racism in our own lives and communities.
 
This resource list represents the work of many our our members and we are grateful for their leadership in this effort.  Several of our chapters have already implemented ant-racism programs using these and other materials. These resources have been curated to provide ease of use by individual members and chapters. It is certainly not exhaustive, and new resources will be added as they are identified.
 
We hope that you will join us in this important effort. Educational resources are available to all TTN members. Please click the link below to gain access to these important tools.


TTN Women in the Community


The Chicago Chapter of The Transition Network (TTN) donated $1,700 to the Greater Chicago Food Depository in April, as a result of its membership renewal drive in which $25 of each renewal was earmarked to be donated to the Greater Chicago Food Depository. More than 50% of the women renewed their membership, a testament to the enthusiasm of TTN members to support families in Chicago and a belief in the endurance of the organization despite the Covid-19 pandemic.

Anchored in the belief that pooling our giving dollars to support an agreed upon cause  multiplies the impact of each dollar given, in 2020 the TTN Philadelphia Giving Circle voted to address food insecurity by awarding its grant of $20,000 to Urban Tree Connection (UTC).  UTC is a local nonprofit devoted to combating food insecurity and diet-related illnesses faced by residents of Philadelphia’s Haddington neighborhood, one of the city’s poorest neighborhoods.

Like other TTN SIGs, Chicago Chapter’s “Lunch Bunch” had our last in-person meeting in March 2020. Our 8-12 member group had been meeting once a month to explore various Chicagoland restaurants since 2013.  Thanks to the capabilities of Zoom, we were able to continue to meet at the usual hour in our respective homes and enjoy our normal free-range discussions. Recent topics of discussion have revolved around life during the pandemic.
