Why Have a Town Hall Meeting Now?

Why Have A Townhall Meeting Now?

Some feel that “we have dealt with this pandemic, what more can be said?”  Many people's lives are still greatly affected by the events of the last two years. 

Many would like to see us moving in a direction that is more sustainable, equitable and considerate of each other.


We want to bring the current issues to light and discuss how we can benefit from the experience of the past two years to build community, and regain trust in one another. 

Our panel of experts has a vast amount of knowledge and personal experience with the government mandates, Covid 19 vaccine research, treatments, and the social impact of the pandemic. 

They have kindly agreed to share their experience and knowledge with us. We greatly appreciate this opportunity to learn from them and invite you to join us in doing the same.


"We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them."

-Albert Einstein
