Community Conversation #2: Stories from the Pandemic


Once the pandemic took hold in our community, we needed a way for all of us to see what was happening. We wanted to share positive stories of resilience. The Sustainability Alliance, in collaboration with OLLI-Sedona started hosting virtual dialogs. Our first Community Conversation focused on how the pandemic was affecting individuals in our community, how people were feeling and adapting. This second Community Conversation focuses on how it’s affecting businesses and non-profits. Please share this free, virtual event with your readers.
