Upcoming Northampton Connects Community Conversationinvite
I am writing to invite people of all perspectives to participate in the second community conversation sponsored by NORTHAMPTON CONNECTS. It will be held Wednesday, June 20, from 6:30 to 8:00 pm, at Edwards Church, 297 Main St. in Northampton.

At our first event on April 3 at JFK Community Center 80 people participated in a facilitated conversation focused on downtown Northampton. Participants were overwhelmingly positive about the opportunity to explore common ground in a safe facilitated environment. At that meeting it was suggested that we hold a second forum at a downtown location at a time when a broader cross section of our community can participate.

We welcome all people and all viewpoints. NORTHAMPTON CONNECTS promotes listening, mutual understanding and common ground by hosting community conversations amongst Northampton residents who have varied experiences and points of view. For more information you can contact us: on Facebook or at

Childcare will be provided.

Thank you.
