Description

Open Coffee is a gathering for people passionate about our community and exploring new ways to get plugged in. Each week, discussion is led by a different inspiring and influential community leader in a roundtable format discussing topics that challenge us to look at the world around us through a different lens. The objective is to leave these gatherings with more knowledge, connections and friends!

October 20th we're joined by Sarah Sjolie, MPA - She is passionate about healthy housing for all; resident-driven solutions for our community are two of her passions.

This gathering - Sarah would like to chat about how health is in everything that we do and is the currency that we use everyday to get through life and also safe routes for all kids to get to school and healthy places in their neighborhood. One of Sarah's favoriate quotes: "The true measure of any society can be found in how it treats its most vulnerable members." ~Mahatma Gandhi
