Activist Council Fall Gathering

November 3-5, 2022

This year the Activist Council will gather virtually November 3-5 for our fall gathering. We’ll have one 2-hour session each of those three days: Thursday evening; Friday afternoon; Saturday morning. The November meeting will include times of worship, sharing news from working groups, an update from the implementation group, and the election of officers, as well as some PPF whimsy.
