Why is it that we have security for politicians or at concerts, sporting events, government buildings, but not at schools? Shouldn’t the children be at the most secure buildings in the nation?

Our hearts break for the families of these children.. the victims of the horrific Texas elementary school shooting. There are not enough words to describe this tragedy.

#YouAreNotAlone

A smile is the greatest gift that one can give to another. And making a difference in someone’s life may sometimes be as easy as asking how they are doing and offering a hand.

Today, the volunteers of our “You Are Not Alone” campaign went around our neighborhood knocking on the doors of our-once strangers now- neighbors to tell them that they are not alone. It obviously wouldn’t have been the Turkish way without gifting flowers and Turkish delight. Then followed messages (in our DMs) and remarks of gratitude and joy.

Make a difference in someone’s life today by calling or visiting them (of course with a distance) because these are times unlike another and you never know how lonely your next door neighbor may be feeling. TODAY is the day!

Quarantine, frontline health workers and teachers as heroes, virtual school, masks, hand sanitizer, toilet paper, paper towels (or lackthereof), more quality time with family, Zoom meetings (and lots of them!) and our covid-friendly drive-thru festivals are what basically sum up 2020 for us. With all its ups and downs, it was indeed an interesting year. We, at TASC wish you a wonderful, healthy and prosperous NEW YEAR! (Oh and a year where wearing masks is a thing of the past!)

HAPPY 2021!

What is one good thing you will always remember about 2020?

SAC New Adjustments for 2020 - Short Version

Wow, Science Academy of Chicago is really making the IMPOSSIBLE, POSSIBLE! We successfully completed the first week of school! It has been an incredible task both for our teachers and students. Many adjustments are being made along the way, and we are continuing to be flexible in order to instruct our students safely in-person and synchronously at home.

We are amongst the FIRST schools in the state of Illinois to offer this in-person/virtual system, and this comes with many challenges. However, we are SO impressed with our teachers and staff's dedication and hard work. THANK-YOU TEACHERS & STAFF--you all are AMAZING!

Here's a glimpse of what our first week at the Science Academy of Chicago looked like as we are continuing to make adjustments for a safe and successful, hybrid education year!

The IL Muslim Civic Coalition Presents: #HeroesOfIllinois Each week we highlight our very own civic and social heroes - people who make this a better world! 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 This week we are highlighting UChicago Medicine’s Chaplain Muhammed Aslan! Muhammed is known for his endless enthusiasm and his persistent efforts in creating a culture of diversity and inclusion within Muslim communities in the Chicagoland area! An Immigrant from Turkey, Muhammed started serving as an Imam and Qur’an educator at the Turkish American Society of Chicago before becoming the Executive Director at the Islamic Islamic Society of Midwest - Chicago. . “My work has focused on building bridges between different faith communities because I’ve always believed in the power of empathy and the importance of understanding each other” Muhammed describes his career. After completing his MA in Theology at Catholic Theological Union and partaking in the Catholic Muslim Studies Program initiated by Scott Alexander, Muhammed started working as the Muslim and staff chaplain at the University of Chicago Medicine. Muhammed continues to serve the community in this new capacity with the same enthusiasm, focusing on giving much-needed spiritual care to patients, families, victims of gun violence, and the staff working wholeheartedly at the forefront. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 https://www.uchicagomedicine.org/ http://www.IllinoisMuslims.org #heroesofillinois
Hello everyone! I am working on a language study ofTurkish and would like to know if anyone knows the current population of Turkish speakers in the Chicagoland area? I looked online and could only find something as of 1990. If you could share some links where I could find the most accurate information, it would be much appreciated! Thanks in advance!

Merhaba, I am looking for a Turkish speaking baby sitter/nanny for my two children ages 3 & 1. Located in the Northwest suburbs. Great pay for the right person, full time. Please pm or text/call me 773-791-0732.
Ok I just have to share this! I’m part of an Ertrugrul fan group, and I’m laughing so hard over this post someone created: “My son is obsessed with Ertugrul. We went to a Turkish restaurant and he ordered "bulgur rice". We are a Pakistani family but he insists we all sit on the floor and eat dinner (on cushions). Then we cannot start until he says "Afiatos". He then goes to forests at weekends and comes home with muddy boots. We had an argument over his muddy boots once and he accused me of being just like "Saadettin Kobek". He is going around saying "ewalah, lakin, wah wah wah" and doing the Alps wedding dance, and it's annoying the heck out of me. His wife used to call him "Bae" and oe has to call him "Bey". What can I do to get him normal again?” We love you Turkey! For Ertrugrul and so many other things as well!
