Hey Everyone,

Ive been checking and it seems that only 2 people have taken the CLC survey. At the event last week you all said you had...did something go wrong? I only see responses from Matt and Andrew.

Can the rest of you please complete it asap? It's very important.

Thanks,

Hey! Just thought you guys might be interested... This sight was developed by a previous employee with Microsoft, the goal was the create information/data that is available for the public more easily accessible. Its actually a really cool site, especially with the the federal budget. https://www.usafacts.org/the-big-picture?return_to=%2Fgovernment-finances%2Fbalance-sheets%3Fcomparison%3Dby_government_type%26government_type%3Dcombined%26table%3Dbalance-sheets--government%26year%3D2016

Hi CLC! We only have 1 more class together...our graduation!!!

Could you please fill out this survey to help us learn more about your experience with Roosevelt so far? This helps us make CLC better each semester and also design other cool new opportunities for IL students.

Please complete by next Thursday May 4th at the latest.

Hi CLC:

I'm looking for some volunteers (up to 5) for an event next week Tuesday, May 9th from about 5:00pm-8:00pm. Former Gov. Pat Quinn's official portrait will be hung in the state capitol next week, and there will be a celebration of it in Chicago on Tuesday evening at Connie's pizza in Bridgeport.

What you would do: Dress nicely, help with name tags and checking people in at the event, help people line up for pictures.
Perks: free pizza, chance to meet lots of people who work/worked in state government and politics in Illinois

Details: Tuesday May 9th, 5:00pm
Connies Pizza 2373 S Archer Ave

Let me know ASAP if you're interested.

Hi all,

A big event at my internship has been scheduled for the exact time as our "graduation" on May 3rd. I'm deeply saddened that I can't attend. Could we possibly discuss alternative days for this? I hate to ask so late in the semester when everyone is so busy. Additionally, I completely understand if people are locked in for the 3rd. Either way, I'd love to hear your thoughts.

All the best,

Olivia

Hi folks!

Here is the video about Outrospection that I mentioned during our last meeting. It's not exactly what I perceive the term has the potential to mean, and some of the depictions aren't good, but it touches on our conversation well. I think we can add that perhaps one can never fully step into another person's world and completely understand them. Our abilities to empathize might be heavily burdened by our stereotypes and projections, which is always something to keep in mind (but doesn't mean we should stop trying!?!).

Hope you're all well.

Happy Monday folks, I hope you all had a restful weekend.

This is a reminder that we will be meeting this Friday from 6-8. Please like to confirm your attendance!

I also wanted to remind you all to set up a 1:1 with myself or Brenna this week! If you can't swing this week, please at least get one scheduled for a later date.

A 1:1 is simply an intentional, in-person conversation with someone you want to build a professional relationship with. It's a great way to discover common interests, or to share networking opportunities or even be inspired by someone's journey. We'll talk more about 1:1s in class.

Shoot me a text if you want to sit down and talk soon. Have a great week and see you Friday!

Hey everyone! Just a reminder from last week's email:

Next week we have an important guest speaker attending: Agnes Meneses from the Chicago Foundation for Women is planning to talk to us about the impact of gender on policy, and especially how this plays out in the criminal justice system. Our conversation will contribute to a city wide effort called "Talk it Out" bringing a focus to gender in communities all across Chicago. To share Agnes' expertise, we would also like to invite you to bring any friends and classmates to join in.

Here's what we need from you to have a successful class next week and a successful remainder of the program:

1. Confirm your attendance for class on Monday, 3/27 with Malik, and let us know how many friends or classmates you would like to bring.
2. Take a look at the rest of the dates for class and let us know if there are any new or unaddressed conflicts - we're happy to renegotiate the dates of class if need be, but that's impossible to do the day of the scheduled event.
3. Schedule a 1on1 with me or with Malik - this is a great way to catch up on any conversations you've missed and get the most out of this experience. We can help you figure out a good next step for you within Roosevelt, connect you to policy experts in your area of interest, help with cover letters, resumes, internship ideas etc.

Hey team, do you have the notes on Thinks 2040 from our discussion on Monday? I'd like to incorporate a few of your decisions on values, outcomes and policies into one of the sessions for this weekend. I remember most but would love to check against any notes you have.

Just upload them here if you have 'em.

Thanks!
