Happy New Year!
How are you? Do you have any new projects in the works? Do you need support in your Good Work? What is happening in your community? We are inviting you to our first gathering of the new year, where we can connect with old friends, meet some new ones and answer some of these questions.
We have been hearing about some of the initiatives happening across the network of those doing Good Work towards Just Transition here in this valley of the Mahicantuck river. We also know that there are so many more things happening, big and small, that are adding up to making a difference in our region. Sharing these is a crucial part of the work. It’s how we inspire each other, how we increase what’s possible and collectively imagine and build.
Join us in a virtual space to share what’s happening in your community. At this session, we will hear from each other, ask each other questions, and share calls of action. Feel free to enjoy your dinner while we connect and share with each other so that we can support each other in carrying this momentum forward. We will host this event via Zoom. The link will be provided in the registration confirmation email.
