Community Connects Virtual Events

Community Connects logo

Community Connects, a collaboration of local organizations, is hosting a series of virtual events that will provide opportunities to learn about issues that are important to the community. Each month, we will learn about a different topic through a panel discussion featuring local voices. One week later, we will reconvene for a reflection session to allow participants to discuss what they’ve learned and share thoughts and feelings in a respectful shared space. Community Connects will also provide additional resources for participants who would like to explore these topics further.

While the panel event will provide context and background for the reflection discussion, attending the panel event is not required for participation in the discussion.
