From time to time the YWCA Greensboro hosts events to discuss important issues of the day. Community Conversations is free, open to the public and invites participants to join in discussions facilitated by YWCA staff or board members.

Votes Count: Better Housing, Equality and Healthcare for All

Can we talk? Lots of information has arrived in our mailboxes and through media about all sorts of hot topics. YWCA Greensboro’s Advocacy and Racial Justice Committee wants to shed some intelligent light on three issues: the negative impact of HB2, the need to support the city housing bonds, and the fallout created by rejection of Medicaid expansion in our state.

We will bring experts to start the conversation but we need you to keep it going. Even if you have already voted, your voice matters. We care about housing for the poor, support of all people, and reliable healthcare for every citizen regardless of ability to pay. Instead of arguing about who will be president, why not talk about what our community can do to serve one another?

Join us on Tuesday, Nov. 1. Doors open at 11:45 a.m. so we can promptly begin our discussion at 12 noon. The experts won’t do all the talking. We need you to ask questions and offer your opinion on where we go from here to make Greensboro a better community for everyone.

The event is free. Bring your bag lunch and we’ll supply something cold or hot to drink and a delicious cookie for dessert.
