Reading, MA — On Tuesday, November 28, at 7 p.m., in the Community Room, prepare to engage in a meaningful dialogue as we come together to foster understanding, share stories, and explore ways to make our community more inclusive. We’ll reflect on positive connections, address challenges, and actively listen to the experiences of our neighbors. The experience will foster a deeper understanding of our shared history, and pave the way for shaping a collective vision for our future.
Together, CATO and the RPL aim to build a stronger and more empathetic Reading community through face-to-face communication to help deepen our understanding of each other. Don’t miss this opportunity to be a part of a transformative conversation.
Registration is required. Space is limited. Registrants should arrive 10 minutes before the event to sign in.
