Engaged Citizen Book Group

Celebrate Presidents’ Day with the Engaged Citizens Book Group!

We had a fantastic and lively discussion at our first meeting on protest, and we’re very excited to talk about immigration, through history, current events, and how we can all be more engaged, active citizens. See you there!

Here are a few things to get you started:
