Take Action Lunch and Learn
Now is the time to come together to make a difference. Regardless of your political preferences, America is deeply divided, and one way to repair that divide is to come together to learn about issues facing everyone and devote our energy to making things better.
That’s what inspired Alisa Peskin-Shepherd and Transitions Legal to create this monthly series of lunch-and-learns, bringing people together in an intimate setting, for innovative networking, education and information, and ways to get involved.
RSVP here to join us!
Each month, guest speakers present important issues to increase awareness and understanding and build communal participation. This new series seeks to inform participants about what we’re facing as a community and how we can work to overcome challenges through communication, teamwork and participation.
