Our Lunch & Learn Series Is Taking Off!
With emotions at an all-time high and political tensions running deep, separating friend and foe alike, I knew I had to do something.
That’s why I launched Take Action this year, a lunch-and-learn monthly series, hosted at my office at 280 N. Old Woodward Ave., Suite LL20 in Birmingham, featuring a speaker on a pressing issue and information on ways to get involved.
Consider joining us! The list of dates and speakers is below.
So many people were shell-shocked in one way or another after our presidential election, and I felt it was essential to find ways to take action so we can repair our communities. This is a personal passion of mine but also a moral obligation to do what I can to inspire people to become informed and get involved in meaningful ways.
