Thanks for a Great Coffee Talk Today on Effective and Ethical Protest

Share

Despite the snow storm, 35 people came out to today’s Coffee Talk.

On the heels of the MLK March, the Women’s March, March for Life, the spontaneous airports protests and the upcoming March for Science, SpokaneFāVS brings the Spokane community a timely discussion on purposeful protest.

Coffee Talks are regular a community forum program organized by SpokaneFāVS, inspired by news events happening in Spokane and across the country. Panelists discuss the topic through a faith lens with a public audience.
