Stand With Women Zoom September 14th Meeting – at 7pm – SWW Talks with Aurie Pennick a retired Civil Rights Lawyer on Civil Rights – Please join us to welcome our guest speaker – a very familiar face to our NWSOFA family- AURIE PENNICK -Attorney and Chicago Community Leader
Aurie has been a Civil Rights Attorney, Fair Housing Co-ordinator, Grant Writer for numerous non-profits and departments for Chicago and State Governments.
Aurie’s list of achievements goes on and on and so does her energy and compassion! Even after 60 years of The Civil Rights Act becoming the law of the land, Aurie has more concern than
ever for the lives, the future and the civil rights of our Black Community in present day America. Our evening with Aurie Pennick will be insightful and passionate on this topic and more.
So bring your questions and concerns. I have attached Aurie’s Biographical Profile. Take a few minutes to read it. Attorney Aurie Pennick is an amazing woman who has been in the fight for fairness, equality and justice for so many in Chicago for so many years.
It couldn’t have been easy. Michelle and I look forward to hearing her story.
As you know Illinois is welcoming women in need of abortions from many neighboring states. The abortion numbers are up 68% in Illinois. At the September meeting we will touch on how Illinois is managing. Over the next couple months, with your help and insights, Michelle and I plan to delve more thoroughly into the Illinois Abortion Access issue and what we can do to help ease the burden for women coming from out of state to seek needed abortions. Also, at our meeting, we will share upcoming NWSOFA and GPAD and Cook County United Against Hate events ( event listings and links will be forwarded in following emails).
Hope to see you soon,
