On Oct. 23, ICOA joined other partners in helping to celebrate the Center for Transformative Action’s 40th anniversary. The event, which took place at the Greater Ithaca Activies Center, included a talk by Anke Wessels, executive director of CTA, and a fascinating presentation by Dorothy Cotton, a renowned civil rights activist who worked alongside Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
At the event, ICOA also had the opportunity to interact with members of the community and discuss our mission. The Durland Alternatives Library, Veterans Sanctuary and the Tompkins County Workers Center were among the many other CTA partners also represented at the event. It was interesting to see the wide range of partners supported by CTA. ICOA was proud to be included in their number and was happy to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Center, with appreciation for its continued support of our organization.
