Yesterday (June 12, 2017) The American Urban Campus invited me to The City Club luncheon with speaker Terry Mazany, President and CEO of The Chicago Community Trust. Terry spoke of the “On the Table Event” that is in its 4th year, was held on May 16, 2017 this year. According to the Web site,
“During each of the past three years, On the Table has proven that Chicago-area residents share a desire to come together, collaborate more, become more civically involved and more committed to our community. While we know that there’s no “quick fix” to the issues facing our region, progress will result from residents and organizations working to make contributions that add up to a greater solution that helps unite the place we call home.
What you do matters – and when we come together as a community to learn from and with each other, we have the power to impact both neighborhoods and lives. That’s what On the Table is all about.”
I think HWC should host a conversation next year! Kudos Terry Mazany for spearheading this effort.
