On Saturday 75 people attended the SpokaneFāVS Coffee Talk on the Refugee Crisis. At 11:30 a.m., when the forum ended, people were still holding their hands in the air to ask questions.
The conversation will continue this week at Pub Talk. Pub Talk is a monthly even organized by FāVS where folks can tip a pint, share a snack and discuss further what was said at Coffee Talk. The discussion will be Thursday at 6:30 p.m. at the Steam Plant, 159 S. Lincoln St. and will be moderated by Jan Shannon.
All are welcome!
