Following a tumultuous year and a divisive election, we want to create a space for our community to come together for dialogue, learning and healing.
Join us as we unite San Mateo by reflecting on who we are as a community and how we can become more tolerant. This free virtual workshop series will be an interactive and engaging dialogue on diversity, equity and inclusion. Space is limited, so register today to share your thoughts and hear from others in your community.
