November 2021 - Northeastern District Update

Jenny Andersen, Northeastern District Chair

Dear Northeastern District Members,

Happy November and Native American Heritage Month! We are fortunate in Northeastern Illinois to have many resources available to connect with Native and Indigenous people and the Indigenous history of our region. Now is a wonderful time to explore and commit to land acknowledgments, connect with organizations like the Chicago American Indian Community Collaborative and the American Indian Center, and advocate for inclusive policies and practices, like culturally relevant approaches to mental health and a celebration of Indigenous People’s Day.

This fall, I would also invite you to join us for an opportunity to network and have some fun. Please join us on Monday, November 08, 2021, from 10:00 to 11:00 AM. We will have trivia with prizes and opportunities to connect with other professionals!

Looking forward to seeing you there:

See below for other chapter news. I welcome your thoughts and questions; please feel free to reach out!
