Upcoming Events Hosted by WISDOM & Affiliates

The next few weeks are packed with events and activities sponsored and hosted by ESTHER and its fellow affiliates in the state-wide WISDOM network.  For all the challenges of the pandemic, these virtual events offer an opportunity to “visit” other justice-seeking organizations around our state without spending a lot of time and gasoline doing it. We hope you find something here to check out.
