Please join us across the city for a three-part structured community dialogue in June 2018.Each dialogue will build on the previous one. And while some may not be able to attend all three dialogues, we are hoping for a core group to be part of all three dialogues so the conversation can deepen over the three weeks. Refreshments will be served at all dialogue sessions.
