Common Ground Returns!
Next session Thursday December 15, Time TBD, at the Library
What is Common Ground? Five years ago, the White Plains League of Women Voters, the White Plains Public Library and the YWCA collaborated to support a community conversation. Living in a community is different from supporting a community so Common Ground emerged as a place to discuss national and local issues from a local perspective. All members of the community are invited to participate as this is place to listen to each other and to learn about our community.
Common Ground will meet in person this year on the third Thursday of the month at the White Plains Public Library. Please check the Library's calendar for event time, as we are trying different times to see what's most convenient for participants. League Member Sue Altman will facilitate the discussion.
Here is the proposed schedule:
December 15th- What is civic responsibility and what do we owe others within our community?
January 19th- How can a community support mental health services? We will invite facilitators from Westchester County Office of Mental Health.
February 16th- What can you do to help the environment within your community? We’re hoping to have facilitator from the environmental sector.
March 16th- LBTQ+ Community and how to support it after the Supreme Court Dobbs decision.
April 20th- TBA based on the topic that the Common Ground participants are interested in.
May 18th- TBA based on the topic that the Common Ground participants are interested in.
This will be the final session until September, 2023
