Monthly Meetings! - Now online due to COVID-19

4th Tuesdays (not Dec), 7-8 pm, via video call. In-Person meetings are temporarily suspended due to COVID-19, but were usually held at St. John's Presbyterian Church, 2727 College Avenue, Berkeley.

For the first hour of in-person meetings, an interesting variety of guest speakers joined us. We used the second hour as a time to ask questions, share stories, learn from and support each other.
