What we're about

☕Current Events Coffee is a community for people who like to think about what's going on in politics, foreign affairs, the economy, etc. and discuss how these things reflect broader trends and affect our daily lives.
Every ~month we discuss a handful of topics that are in the headlines, selected and announced a ~week before the meeting. Come informed and ready to contribute; or, if you missed out on what's going on, come ready to listen and think critically. The goal? To leave with fresh info and new perspectives.

We all bring something different to the table when we read the news, and it's great to get a chance to discuss. We'd love to have you!

Format/what to expect: We sit around a table and talk--that's really it. Attendance is capped at 14 to allow everyone to hear and talk, and to avoid side conversations, so RSVPs can fill up months in advance. We do some light moderation to keep us on topic and make sure nuanced views/perspectives can be heard, explored, and understood.
