Change, the discussion

 

Change, the Discussion

This series will combine an informative guest speaker with action steps to enrich our community, dispel misinformation, and foster an environment of safe discussion. This forum will explore socially, culturally, and politically complex issues. Each subject will be explored over two months, a month of education and a month of action.

Guest speakers will provide information on a spectrum of topics and give ways to act. Participants will be challenged to put what they learned into practice through such activities as service projects, sharing information with peers, and fundraising.

The seminars are nonpartisan and free to the public. The guest speakers will be issue area experts and individuals sharing their person experiences.
