Won’t You Be My Neighbor? Finding Common Good and Purpose in Fremont

February 24 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm

Won’t you be my neighbor?”

What makes a neighborhood livable and thriving for all? In this time of extensive change, inequality, ambiguity, and a national loneliness epidemic, the moment calls for creating and maintaining an active citizenry and deepening connection, steeped in mutual understanding and values. We invite you to share in this endeavor.

Grab a cup of coffee in the neighborhood and let’s join at the Fremont Library for meaningful conversation about civic engagement and building a strong, caring, and intentional community. During the first of three gatherings, “Won’t You Be My Neighbor, Finding Common Good and Purpose in Fremont,” we’ll reflect and connect with others through conversation, civic perspectives, readings, poetry, and song.
