As follow up to our first ebook, Inspired Inside, we are shifting outward for this issue called Inspired Impact. We were moved to create another book, this time centered around people making change. The world-wide demonstrations in support of Black Lives Matter, Indigenous Lives Matter, and Pride Month are on our minds in addition to the lasting effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.
We wanted to share a second issue that we hope inspires you, while offering you resources for self-care, connection, and creative expression. Women are making an impact in their communities and around the world, and we have some truly amazing women to introduce you to.
This publication is free to download, but we are asking those who are able to make a donation to I Grow Chicago - an organization founded by Robbin Carroll, and on a mission to provide community building, holistic healing, and resource sharing in Chicago’s Englewood neighborhood.
From the I Grow website:
I Grow Chicago is a hyper-local approach, part of a larger movement for systemic change. We engage more than 3,000 people per year to address the root causes of trauma and violence We engage and employ residents to lead our holistic Healing Justice programs, acting as change agents, activists, and role models.
Our neighbors and supporters have co-created a Peace Campus — giving Englewood residents the opportunity and skills to transform vacant lots and abandoned homes into a healing zone filled with accessible resources. On our Peace Campus, we operate more than 15 programs for all ages.
