COMMUNITY BOOKS & BREAKFAST SOCIAL

Hello Everyone!
If you are interested in being involved in local issues that affect black people's lives, then this event is for you. I've attended several meetings and love to environment, people, and freedom of not having to worry about being judged for what is said. Mrs. T is great with the ice breaker activity. 

Last month the topic was on Self-care. You will truly be blessed with information, activities, food, conversation free books, but most of all community.

Books and Breakfast is a monthly community event geared towards social justice and education. Their goal is to build a sense of community, increase awareness about social issues, and encourage people to be involved in local issues. Books and Breakfast is designed to free body, mind, and soul.

If you have children, please bring them along. There is FREE childcare for them at the site. Please don't miss out on the next gathering October 28th @ 10am. Stay tuned for location.

Please come out to this life changing event to be:
1)Encouraged
2)Connected
3)Empowered

TOGETHER, WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE!
