SPECIAL: Intergenerational Polarization Conversation

October 31, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm PDT

This conversation is designated as an intergenerational conversation. Conversation hosts will be members of our Youth Council and we are interested in having a balanced conversation of older and younger participants.

Politics: Can We Talk?

HERE is the…

According to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, housing is considered affordable when a person pays no more than 30 percent of income toward housing costs, including utilities.

Coronavirus – Alone: Isolation or Solitude?

January 3 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm PST

Our social nature is part of our humanity. People tend to like being with other people, and many of us need other people in order to be healthy and happy. The feeling of being alone can weigh heavily on an individual. Yet, for some people, solitude is tranquil, relaxing, and even spiritually rewarding. The current need to physically isolate ourselves from others is putting limits on our social connections. While we are being cut off from outside daily connections, some…
