We have all been busy this summer; collaborating on grant proposals, planning social justice related events, learning about ways to re-organize the economy, and more... there is a lot to share!

Come and share your summer successes, discuss autumn activities and get to know each other over some wine and cheese. There will also be time to share your upcoming events and activities, so bring materials!

Per many of your requests, the reception will be unstructured to allow time to re-connect and deep connect.  Feel free to bring a friend or two to introduce them to the network!
