It happens all the time: a group of well-intentioned neighbors come together fired up with passion to create change. We come together and begin with huge inspiration and enthusiasm–and then, with time passing, become trapped in the mire of conflict. How do we work with those “irritating,” “self righteous,” “controlling,” “fluff brained,” “clueless” folks who are, in reality, our dear friends, neighbors and allies?
WE CAN DO BETTER!
All are invited to this free and open event: friends, neighbors, colleagues, Neighborhood Council volunteers and stakeholders from across LA, Neighborhood Watch Groups, City Agencies, non-profits, theater groups, art collectives , PTOs, PTAs, Business Associations and more.
All will find valuable skills for moving their own groups and neighborhoods forward.
