We call people who build social trust in their communities “weavers.” Meet three in these lightning talks, where they tell their stories with 20 slides and just 20 seconds on each.
Meet our guests: Ashley Esposito (Baltimore, MD) started a neighborhood wellness association after she heard her neighbors didn’t feel connected or welcomed. Now they’re all coming together to solve local issues, like distributing food and water to neighbors and setting up a neighborhood compost station center. Charles Perry (Chicago, IL) once changed the landscape of the community with drugs and violence. Now he is changing the community landscape with conversations and relationships. Jeudy Mom (Compton, CA) was 8 when his family fled Cambodia as refugees. The care his family received when they landed in California led him to pay it forward through a career of mobilizing neighbors to support each other in reducing homelessness, increasing safety, fighting racism, and more.
Wednesday, April 4th at 7:00pm Eastern Time (6:00pm Central Time, 5:00pm Mountain Time, 4:00pm Pacific Time)
Free and virtual on Zoom.
