Our spring gathering in New York City will be a time for community building and reflecting together on what we have learned in the past year. We’ll enjoy good food, explore the city together, and hear from Julie Rodgers, Mira Sawlani-Joyner, and Peter Choi as they provide grounding reflections along the way.
