This meeting will feature our first “Food for Thought” speaker series presentation!   These 20 minute Ted Talk style speeches will take place at the beginning of each board meeting and highlight presenters from diverse and marginalized groups within the Frederick community.  Our hope is to center different voices in order to learn about the joys, struggles, and experiences within Frederick and emphasizes our co-op principles of education and concern for community.  Due to limited meeting time, there will be no Q&A but contact information will be shared for follow up conversations.

This Thursday’s speaker is Clare Madrigal who serves on the Board of the Frederick Center.
