CONVERSATIONS (on Current Events…..)
DATE TBD | 7:30 PM
JOIN THE DISCUSSION, an honest dialogue on the critical issues of the day. MLRT members began meeting three years ago, and prior topics have included gun violence and the US Bill of Rights, the minority experience in America, the Iran nuclear deal and other important issues. We ask participants to come prepared for an open and honest exchange of views—political correctness is not a requirement, but respectful dialogue is an expectation. If you are interested, or planning to attend for the first time, please send us your email address so that background materials may be sent to you in advance. Everyone in the MLRT adult community is welcome.
