EPIP Boston's next breakfast discussion will take place on Thursday, February 28th, at 8am. We'll meet at The Well Coffee House in Boston, a nonprofit coffee shop, staffed by volunteers, that donates a portion of its proceeds every month to selected nonprofits in the Boston area.
This month, we'll be discussing the Sunshine Movement and support for the Green New Deal--specifically around this article from InsidePhilanthropy.com: "Sunrise Movement is Shaking Up the Climate Debate. Will More Funders Pay Attention?"
Please read the article in advance, and feel free to consider our discussion questions, available for viewing here.
Looking forward to seeing you!
