A time to come together

We have been horrified at the events as they have unfolded this week, with the death of George Floyd at the hands of the police and the violence in so many parts of our country. 

We have also been encouraged at the many who have come together in peaceful protest. The coming together has not been segregated, but rather integrated and unified under common concern for social justice and equality. 

 Tonight is a time for us to come together

The date and time of our online groups has changed. Last week we took a poll of the best time to for our Academy of Peer Services Virtual Community group to meet. As of tonight, we are offering a single group each week  - for peer supporters to come together.
