Real change happens in community — when we inspire, seek accountability and watch out for each other.
“Great group yesterday. It’s nice to feel so comfortable and be part of a group that is open to discuss anything. Hearing others’ expertise and experiences is so helpful. I don’t have the opportunity to talk about a lot of these things in my daily life. This meeting makes me feel less alone. I look forward to it each month. I felt really good yesterday when I left.”
