210 Connect “Use Your Power” – 02/12/18
210 CONNECT – A Public Forum for Community related topics at 210 Café in Visalia
This month, 210 Connect covered the topic “Use Your Power: How to Change Your Community through Civic Engagement”. Activists and would-be activists from the Visalia community gathered to discuss issues such as immigration, clean air/clean water, public safety, healthcare, homelessness, and other issues. Definitely designed to be educational in nature, attendees learned some basics in becoming more engaged in the community.
Definitely a “lions’ den” appointment, with most of the attendees and panelists being generally hostile to TKRL’s message, but we still managed to network with a few people that are now considering volunteer opportunities with us!
