Voting with a Feminist Lens: A Workshop Created by and for Teens

Join Moving Traditions for Voting with a Feminist Lens, a workshop series to educate soon-to-be voters and newly registered voters on the importance of not only voting but also making their votes meaningful. Over the course of three hour-long sessions, we cover the importance of voting (with emphasis on the history of the women’s suffrage movement); the logistics of voting and voter registration; how women’s rights relate to social, political, and economic issues; and choosing a candidate that represents your values. This workshop is co-sponsored by Union for Reform Judaism and United Synagogue Youth. For more information and to register visit the web page below.

Session 3: What do you look for in a candidate? The final session breaks down candidate selection into several more manageable parts, which can help to enhance voters’ confidence in their decisions.

National Kidney Foundation of Illinois 35th Annual Gift of Life Gala: Coming Together As A Team

The National Kidney Foundation of Illinois (NKFI) announces the 35th Annual “Gift of Life Gala: Coming Together As A Team” virtually on Thursday, October 29, 2020 at 6:00 p.m. The evening will benefit the NKFI mission to improve the health and well-being of those at risk or affected by kidney disease through free screening programs and community health initiatives in Illinois.

Paying homage to the spirit of teamwork, NKFI along with Chicago White Sox Charities will honor the memory of legendary broadcaster and pitcher Ed Farmer, posthumously, with the “Gift of Life Award.” 30 years ago, Ed was diagnosed with polycystic kidney disease at the age of 40 and later received a transplant from his brother, Tom. Ed was passionate about kidney disease and often returned to Harvard, where his transplant was performed, to speak with current patients. Illinois Secretary of State Jesse White will present the award to Darrin Jackson, WGN radio broadcaster and organ donation activist, who will accept the award on behalf of his late radio partner, Ed Farmer.

Illinois State Senator Mattie Hunter will also be recognized with the “Gift of Life Award” for her efforts in spearheading the Kidney Disease Prevention and Education Task Force. The “Corporate Partner Award” will be given to Baxter International, Inc. for their continuous support of NKFI and its mission for more than 20 years.

Pat Tomasulo, sports anchor and reporter at WGN-TV, will serve as master of ceremonies and host the evening’s events. Ballpark favorites such as peanuts and popcorn will be sent to all guests in advance to enjoy during the program. Together as a team, the virtual gala will raise awareness of kidney disease and bring together supporters of organ donation.

Event sponsors include Nephrology Associates of Northern Illinois and Indiana, Dialysis Care Center, Gift of Hope, and NX Stage.

JNew to Two (or More) Moms Group (Virtual)

With the birth of each baby we become “new” mothers all over again, making both literal and figurative space for another infant as we adapt to the changing dynamics of a growing family. The JNew to Two (or More) Moms Group provides an opportunity for mothers who have recently welcomed their second (or third, fourth, etc.) baby to share openly about the rewards and challenges of caring for multiple children (while also living through a global pandemic). Professionally-facilitated weekly discussions help spark meaningful connections between participants while addressing relevant topics such as infant care, supporting older children as they transition to big siblinghood, meeting the needs of kids at different developmental levels, appreciating each child as an individual, and recalibrating the balance of parenthood, work and relationships within our evolving identities.

Between Vengeance and Forgiveness: The Legacy of Nuremberg

"A WARNING FROM HISTORY? THE NUREMBERG TRIALS 75 YEARS LATER" - OPENING KEYNOTE
In the wake of the Holocaust, prosecutors at the 1945 Nuremberg Trials faced a daunting task: seeking justice for an unfathomable crime. Commemorating Nuremberg’s 75th anniversary, join us for a series of thought-provoking programs on the history and legacy of the Trials, its lessons for a world still plagued by genocide, and the challenges we still confront in seeking justice today.
For the opening keynote, join us to hear Harvard Law School 300th Anniversary University Professor and former Dean Martha Minow, regarded internationally as a leading voice for justice and champion for human rights. One of the greatest legal minds of our time, Minow will offer a compelling examination of the legacy of Nuremberg, the rule of law, and addresses why seeking justice for mass atrocities like the Holocaust requires balance between vengeance and forgiveness.

4.50 Illinois MCLE Professional Responsibility Credits Available.
