Front Porch Discussion Group

Wednesday, July 15, 2020 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm


Members only–free. Registered attendees will receive details to join via Zoom. To RSVP, please scroll down.

This program is presented by the Village Near North Circle, but is open to any members of the Village. Want to recapture a little of the old days, when you could sit on the front porch, talk with your friends, and meet your new neighbors? The Front Porch Discussion Group will bring a little of that feeling to our currently isolated life situations. Members connect with each other virtually through Zoom and discuss a topic of general interest. The meeting is designed so you also can meet some new virtual neighbors and get more human-to-human contact.

The topic for July 15 is “Will defunding provide what is needed for police reform?” The discussions are all casual; specialized knowledge is not required. But due to the unusual complexity of police reform issues, we are asking all attendees to invest the 30-45 minutes on selected background explanations before this meeting. Come and increase your human-to-human connections during these exceptional times. Pre-registration is mandatory and space is limited to 20 members. Register by July 15 and you will then receive an email invitation with the pre-study materials.
