In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have shifted our focus away from in-person meetings and towards a fully online campaign. We support our community by fostering communication and connection while we all struggle with the isolation that comes with social distancing.
Think Tank Thursdays (6:05PM - 7:55PM): Taking the information from the campaign’s weekly status call and integrating our work, providing status updates on existing projects, and developing new projects in line with the campaign’s current needs.
