TEDxBaltimore presents:


This forum builds on Lois' talk at TEDxBaltimore: link

The family unit is a foundation of society that embodies values and behaviors. The changing definition of family reflects evolving societal needs and realities. Join us for a moderated discussion on the modern family that addresses sexuality, gender, identity, and technology.

    Are members of the group meeting up ahead to sit together or does it not matter? Just curious because it will be my first time

      Nancy, you can bring a little prop or wear a distinctive item (colored hat, pin) to be found. See you tonight!

      In case anyone wants to sit together, I'll try to get there a little early and will wait at the entrance since this will be my first time too. I'll be wearing grey pants & a t-shirt.
