We want to invite you to join us this Thursday June 25th for the first in a series of HAL Summer Storytelling Sessions.

What is the power of stories in this moment?

These sessions will be an opportunity to hear from our partners in this moment of pandemic & anti-racist, Black Lives Matter protests. What we share and learn will help us collectively reimagine our plans for the fall and shape the building blocks for the future of HAL.

We're very excited that our first session will feature community partners Rosa Rivera Furumoto of Padres Pioneros and Anthony Diaz of Newark Water Coalition telling stories from their ongoing local efforts. The event will be participatory and we encourage you to have a piece of paper and marker/pen.
