Interfaith Story Circle

Stories of Becoming — and Serving as — Allies, May 4, 2022, 7:15 – 8:45 p.m.

Please join us for our monthly Zoom meeting.

How – and why – does one become an ally to “the other”? What are the ways in which we can support our allies? Our two guest tellers will share their personal stories; perhaps you have a story to share?
