Summer Speakers Series

This summer we are launching a speakers series to address issues that are important to progressives throughout Orange County. The more educated we are about issues facing our communities, the better prepared we will be to address them.

Join us for appetizers and conversation on green business, immigration issues, ideas about race and identity and the financial challenges facing the Obama administration.

These events will be in a townhall format, where the audience will have an opportunity to engage and ask questions of our speakers.
