EVENTS

Our mission is to educate members to be knowledgeable voters and take action on issues critical to our democracy. To that end, we hold regular meetings where members can connect and share ideas. The agenda is comprised of a member action and a guest speaker, presenting on topics such as healthcare, voter rights, immigration, etc. 

 

Regular gatherings have been suspended due to COVID-19 guidelines for social distancing. We look forward to resuming a full agenda, once it is safe to do so.

NOTHING SCHEDULED
