the project

Our second Gather To Talk happens on Sunday, March 12th.

This time around, performers Elena Aranda, Victor Galvan, and Juan Juarez of Motus Theater will be sharing their stories with us.

After we hear their stories, we will break up into small groups, as we did last time, to dive into some deep conversation about the challenges immigrants are facing in our community.

We will look at what we can do to harness our people power to help, to support, and to stand in solidarity with our immigrant neighbors and friends.

And like last time, this event is limited to 160 people, so feel free to share with your circle of friends, and have them RSVP by emailing me at

More updates to come this gathering continues to unfold and take shape.


the steps

Motus Theater is all set to share their work with us on Sunday, March 12th.

All that needs to happen now is to get all of us there, and to get facilitators on board to lead the small group discussions.


why we're doing it

This is about listening to each other, connecting with each other, and understanding more deeply the experience of one another, so that we can move forward - together - in a way that we never could have imagined.  It's about building and fortifying that root system.  It's about what is underneath.
