This Friday we are going to talk about the need to read the room and set the narrative to come out stronger.
Critical thinking expert Randy Pherson (President, Pherson Associates) will talk to us about how to analyze actions and events in order to understand what is really going on and what we can do to stay ahead of the brewing chaos.
Qasim Rashid will discuss this moment in time from Black history month, to what’s going on with the Youngkin administration, to his new efforts through the Common Purpose PAC to elevate and support underrepresented and progressive candidates who are committed to justice, compassion, and the common purpose of ensuring government works for working families.
