Your InterPlay Co-Liaisons to Leaders of Color, Masankho Banda, and Carolyn Renée are visiting InterPlay communities this spring and summer to help unite and encourage greater participation of People of Color/Leaders of Color in local InterPlay communities. We want to complement the recent launch of Points of Connection Zoom video conferencing meet-ups by hosting these in-person gatherings. This is an opportunity to also build a stronger alliance of InterPlay POC/LOC community through the tools of InterPlay.

This event will intersect with the Art & Social Change: InterPlay for Millennial Leaders that will be taking place. The POCs and Millennials will have a potluck at 5:30 pm and then at 7:30 pm, Art & Social Change participants will be doing an informal sharing and graduation that all are invited to attend.
