Our speaker, Lisa Blanchard, is the founder and executive director of the Grateful Garment Project, a non-profit that seeks to ensure that no victim of sexual assault ever experiences further suffering due to lack of resources. Sexual assault victims are often asked to give up their clothing as evidence after seeking medical attention and typically leave with nothing but a hospital gown to wear. The Grateful Garment Project provides clothes and other resources that they may need.
Our speaker, Linnea Butler, LMFT and founder of the group therapy practice Bay Area Mental Health, is going to be discussing "the things that hold us back from happiness and perspectives on getting unstuck."
Alex Rudnick is going to be our host! Warren Schmidt is doing our reading and Josh Abadie is sharing his Doing Your Best.
Let's have a potluck after Assembly! See our new signup page for main, side, vegetarian, kid-friendly, and dessert dishes. No account or password needed. Please sign-up! https://signup.com/go/tKRFhnQ
All young-at-heart are invited to "Camp SASV," where we'll sing fun camp songs and hear about adventures at Camp Quest West, a secular summer camp.
Our guest speaker, Dr. Jessica Witchley, alumni staffer at Camp Quest West, will share what's new and tales of recent camp adventures. Come prepared to show off your critical thinking chops in Darwin's 20 Questions, a longtime camp activity that's good for all ages!
We’re having a Potluck-and-Games Social while making leadership changes! If weather is good, we can play in the park.
This meeting will nurture our social connections and sense of community through sharing food, face-to-face conversations, and fun games. Future Assemblies will continue to feature uplifting singing, inspiring readings, and scintillating speakers.
Sharing a potluck dish—and maybe even a family-friendly game—will help make our Potluck-and-Games Social a booming success!
