Dinner with friends (and sometimes strangers) can help us get to know our neighbors a little better and we hope our Takeout Tuesday series does just that. As part of our programming, Takeout Tuesdays are free and open to the public. We want to make our events accessible to as many people as possible. Bring your favorite take-out dinner and a drink and join us to learn about a hot local, state or national topic.
This season, we’ll start on November 14th to find out if the City and County can find a solution for the homelessness issue facing our community. On March 20th, we’ll evaluate what our community is doing to help the the job skills gap and then close out the Takeout Tuesday series on April 17th to discuss your right to die – an issue making headlines throughout the country. We hope we can find some common ground in an America that is so diverse. It won’t be the same without you as a part of the conversation, so join us!
Fort Lauderdale Commissioners have been conflicted about the city’s role, feeling homeless-related issues are throughout Broward and should be dealt with at the county level. Is this a city issue or a county issue? And can it be solved?
Should we be pushing all of our children to attend college or is there a place for more tradesmen? How do we best prepare our workforce to be able to meet the needs of our ever changing economy?
Complicated and challenging issues take time to flesh out. Our advisory board is currently at work (and having tough, yet civil conversations) determining the best direction to take this topic that is relevant and worthy of your time. We’ll be updating the site soon with more information on the topic and panelists so stay tuned!
