About The Event

The idea for Thinking Out Loud came from the desire to hold space in our busy lives to learn, reflect, and talk with fellow APAWLA members about issues impacting our communities. We hope TOL will result in APAWLA members developing their own understanding of, and engaging others about, important social issues. For each discussion, we will have a syllabus that will take approximately two hours to complete. The discussions are member-driven, and we will provide questions to help kick off the discussion.

Please see below for the syllabus for the February 27, 2024 discussion. You must be a 2024 APAWLA member to participate in the small group discussion. If you are not a member, please join us at https://www.apawla.com/.
