Civic Saturday: How We Are Alone, How We Are Together
Time & Location
About the Event
ABOUT THE EVENT
The story of the U.S. is often marked by ideas like individualism, competition and growth. But the challenges we face these days, like covid, political polarization and climate change, require new solutions--ones that will only come about through a spirit of cooperation, collectivism and generosity. So how do we weave a thread from our past to our future in ways that allow us to live in more connected ways?
Join us for Civic Saturday, a joyful gathering of friends and strangers that fosters a spirit of shared civic purpose. We’ll hear music, poetry and stories as we gather in community to discuss how we are alone and how we are together in these times. Then, we'll end with a special group activity that will bring us all together. This event is in partnership with My Life, My Stories, a local nonprofit whose mission is to build intergenerational connections through the power of storytelling.
