Feb. 26 Open Mic Features Anne Schultz

February 26, 2017 at Conrad Sulzer Regional Library in Chicago.


Anne hails from London, and will read her writings–some about her post-WW II childhood in the war torn city, and some far more fantastical as she chronicles her present-day adventures with her pet (imaginary) jaguar in Chicago.

Following her program is the regularly scheduled Open Mic, where readers can present 6 to 8 minutes of poetry, essays, fiction, comedy, and more.

For details on this and other TallGrass Guild events, visit the web site wwwDOToutriderpressDOTnet

TallGrass Open Mics are held at Sulzer Library regularly on the fourth Sunday afternoon of the month, with dates re-arranged due to holidays. Details: email outriderpress@sbcglobal.net or call 219-322-7270.

Coffee Chat with Anastasia

February 24, 2017 at Chicago, IL in Chicago.


The Coffee Chat with Anastasia program is an innovative, informal, informative and indulgent way of adult learning. Targeted to the dental hygiene team, the host Anastasia Turchetta, RDH will dialog three guest speakers over coffee in a relaxed setting (like a talk show) and facilitate a Q&A session for each panelist with the audience. Each guest panelist will discuss a topic of their expertise. Focus is on clinical and in-practice relevance and tips that the audience can take away and reapply in their dental practice.

The Importance of Initiation

February 25, 2017 at The Earth Center of Maanu in Chicago.


“The lack of initiation and proper education in the modern world has become a tremendous handicap to the spiritual and intellectual evolution of the modern human being.”
– Iritah Shenmira: Dogon Priest, Healer and Director of The Earth Center of Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso

In indigenous cultures, initiation is the educational system used to pass down the wisdom, sacred knowledge, and traditions that help preserve their way of life and cultural values. This knowledge and these values that have preserved this Earth and humanity for thousands of years have not been lost. This ancient wisdom has been kept alive and is the key to reclaiming authentic human culture and dignity. The Earth Center offers authentic Kemetic (indigenous African) initiation.

– Education is the key to our cultural revolution
– Change the world by changing yourself with techniques you can use right away
– Learn life principles to preserve our communities for future generations
– Discover why returning home to Kemet begins with the mind.
– Gain principles to assist you in changing from a colonized individual to a child of Meritah (Africa)!
– Hear from initiates who just returned from a 2-month pilgrimage in Meritah!
– Learn about making Ancestral offerings at an authentic Kemetic shrine.

Illinois Resistance Resource Fair

April 08, 2017 at Chicago Teachers Union Center in Chicago.


These are difficult times for people who value an inclusive, progressive, and hopeful America. Yet there is hope bubbling up all around us as lifelong organizers and activists join with new converts to fight back against harmful policies emanating from Springfield and Washington.

In Illinois, we’d like to help accelerate this process by hosting a large one day “resource fair” where activists, professional organizers, 1st-timers, and everyone in between can come together and channel their energies and frustrations into local organizations doing work right here, right now. We’re excited to do so in partnernship with Democratic GAIN, the premier national membership association for progressive political professionals and organizations.

Working with a host committee of 50+ committed and experienced organizers and activists, along with Democratic GAIN, we want to provide professional development opportunities for people seeking employment in the progressive movement while also offering local organizations who are hiring or foresee doing so in the coming months, a convenient opportunity to gather resumes.

Beyond those seeking employment, we want to help harness the incredible energy of those looking to volunteer with any one of the more than 90 local partners that are engaged in progressive organizing, community building, and political activism throughout the Chicagoland area. We’ve invited organizations focusing on the following areas:

o Women’s rights
o Healthcare/Obamacare
o Environment
o Democratic Organizations/Campaigns
o Voting rights and expanded voter access
o Civil Rights
o Criminal Justice Reform
o Gun Violence Prevention
o Economic Justice/Organized Labor
o Religious Organizing
o Immigration
o Youth Issues
o ***As organizations confirm their particpation, we’ll list them here**

CTU’s Center can accommodate over 1,000 people with multiple breakout rooms being made available. That will allow us to set up all the participating organizations in a “science fair” setting in the main hall to let attendees engage with the groups in attendance, while running simultaneous professional development breakouts and additional trainings and workshops with partnered groups and presenters. Programming details are forthcoming.

Help spread the word online by sharing the event and using the #ILResistance tag. Together, we’ll help build the movement and advance justice and equality in Illinois.

Questions? Concerns? Ideas? Want to have your organization particpate? Contact us at ilresistancefair@gmail.com.
