In 2020-2021, the Community Service Committee was co-chaired by Jesse Bowman and Lisa Winkler. The members of the committee were Mike McMillan, Nan Norton, Lucy Robbins, and Patricia Scott. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, no in-person community service activities were planned.
However, for each of the quarterly CALL Business Meetings, a specific organization was selected, and CALL membership was encouraged to make monetary donations to that organization. The following organizations were selected:
- September 2020: Asian Americans Advancing Justice – Chicago
- December 2020: Public Interest Law Initiative
- February 2021: DuSable Museum of African American History
- May 2021: Chicago Books to Women in Prison
Unfortunately, this approach did not permit us to track the total number or dollar amount of donations made by CALL membership to each organization.
However, each organization was capable of accepting donations via credit card and/or PayPal, so we are confident that CALL members who wished to make donations were able to do so quickly and conveniently.
