PEOPLE’S STATE OF THE UNION: Story Circle
Jan 26, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm| Free
Every January, the President delivers a State of the Union address highlighting important issues from the past year and suggesting priorities for the coming year. It’s a broadcast from one to many. But democracy is a conversation, not a monologue. Understanding the state of our union takes We the People reflecting in our own communities on our challenges and opportunities locally, nationally, and globally.
The People’s State of the Union is an invitation to supplement the President’s stories with our own, together hosting a national conversation in our own homes, schools, houses of worship, and community organizations. To change the world, we have to change the story!
Open Source will be participating in this national event by hosting a story circle on Tuesday, January 26. During the story circle, participants are invited to share their own take on the state of our union (whether it be on education, environment, racial justice, or other pressing issues). The event will begin at 7pm with the story circle beginning at 7:30pm.
