Theme: New Perspectives

This event occurred on
April 24, 2018
La Verne, California
United States

We will have 3 speakers share their viewpoints inspired by the theme of "New Perspectives" on our event date. As it is within ourselves to share a new perspective by first opening our minds to allow each other to exchange information, we need to pursue new ideas by listening to others. The talks will challenge us to ask the question, how can we achieve a newer perspective of changing the world and helping ourselves to become better?
