Vision: A Beautiful Community of allies and friends, locally and globally...

MEETUP for CONVERSATIONS is a community initiative and educational program organized by local volunteers, social entrepreneurs and "changemakers." Let's connect and keep in touch with friends old and new each month and get to know each other better for the fulfillment of your aspirations for yourself and your community!

EXPECT THE UNEXPECTED at this spontaneous and creative community building event!

These monthly community get together events provide opportunities to make new contacts, develop community allies and to connect with others interested in similar topics. Express your interest to volunteer and join the Allies Team of community builders. Please introduce yourself to the co-organizers and email us for invitations to attend followup small group meetings and project conference calls. Let's get to know each other better to see when we are ready to collaborate harmoniously with appreciation, forgiveness and understanding.

This community initiative is organized by the Allies Team and  co-sponsored by the Friendship Archway Network, Allies Building Community Inc. (A.B.C.), Allies Networks, Allies DC and other co-sponsors.

The Friendship Archway Network is a communications network of social entrepreneurs, "changemakers", professionals, community builders, freelancers, investors, students, community leaders, community investors, Asian Americans, Chinese Americans and people of diverse backgrounds interested in bridging  cultural, digital and other divides and strengthening harmony and unity of purpose. Learn and share ideas about creative solution-oriented approach for personal and community advancement. Connect with people you may not otherwise meet! Share your passion and take one step toward the fulfillment of the vision for  "A Beautiful Community" through showing up each month to help build mutually supportive and beneficial relationships!

We look forward to connect you to allies and friends interested in working together to build a better future for all!  For more information on the nonprofit co-sponsor of this community initiative, see  Register for reminders at this web address, which is  ... will develop more friendships with people of diverse background in Washington D.C. if you save 3rd Sundays for new contacts in the community working together to build a happier and friendlier future for all!
