IMPORTANT - Your Ideas Needed to Strengthen Our Committee!

Join us after the July 1 Friday Morning Forum to offer your ideas on strengthening our committee work. We are contracting them from three Fridays per week to one, consolidating the Program Committee, the Outreach/Advocacy Committee, and Working Group on Ending Systemic Racism into one committee whose work will be really productive because it had your ideas to help direct its formation.
