We invite you to join us for Conversations for One City to bridge cultural, digital and other divides. We are allies and friends for "ONE CITY, ONE FUTURE"! Let's engage in conversations for friendship and better understanding to strengthen harmony and unity of purpose among people from different groups and backgrounds. Let's get to know each other better for mutual understanding and support!
EXPECT THE UNEXPECTED!
Join us for conversations over lunch (self-pay) on the 3rd Sundays of each month in Downtown Washington D.C. to develop greater understanding and help to bridge divides based on technology, ethnic origin, culture, religion, occupation, income, group, beliefs, etc. Join the ConversationsNET forum in the message board in this group by clicking message board: www.meetup.com/conversationsnet/messages/boards/ We look forward to meet you in person on the 3rd Sundays of each month as well as at followup small group followup conversations. Thanks for your interest and participation.
This is an initiative of ConversationsNET (tm) with members of Allies Building Community Inc., Archway Network and other groups. We also sponsor www.meetup.com/onecity/ You will meet members from many different groups at these community events including http://www.archway2.org, www.meetup.com/socialentrepreneurs/, www.meetup.com/AsianAmericans/
This program facilitates spontaneous conversations for people to learn, support, heal, exchange ideas, share insights, lessons learned, new opportunities and identify ways to transcend divisions to build One City of allies and friends. Join the volunteer training program to begin the process of training to co-facilitate topic forums and discussions online and on land. Please invite your friends to stay in touch with friends, old and new, at the event!
This program provides a friendly context to share contacts and whatever is useful, practical or humorous. Discover differences in assumptions and beliefs. This is also a way to help newcomers learn about a neighborhood and what matters to others in the group and in different groups. This volunteer local community initiative provides oportunities to develop new community allies to co-develop new approaches or develop better solutions to build a better future for all.
We invite you to join the volunteer allies team to develop materials and shape a better quality of life together. Begin by attending the 3rd Sundays networking sessions, introduce yourself to the co-organizers and others at the event, show up for volunteer orientations and followups meetings at Capital Professional Center, 2423 Pennsylvania Ave. NW first floor conference room, DC 20037. Express your interest in serving as a volunteer on the Allies Team to help out or lead a group and in the process develop your support network. Please join the discussion message board here and share your thoughts on topics which would be beneficial for building greater understanding and unity of purpose of the District as One City!
AGENDA for the 3rd Sunday events: (1) Networking conversations over lunch or drink (self-pay for your own drink/food) (2) A round of self-introductions to the group, network with others at the event. We welcome people from all 8 wards of the City and the Greater Washington D.C.
