The first session of our new program, Conversation Cafe is a place to meet and discuss important topics with other community members. This is a hosted conversation where mutual respect, dialogue, and sharing our experiences help bring us to a greater understanding of what is going on in the world.

Part of the worldwide Conversation Cafe movement that is stewarded by the National Coalition for Dialogue and Deliberation, we hope to develop our dialoging skills and create connections through conversations that matter.

Our first topic is disaster preparedness. There is no need to do any homework before coming to the conversation, just bring your questions, experiences, and an open mind. Our host will lead the discussion and walk you through the process.

This is a free event with a suggested donation of $5 to help us cover the cost of running the space and providing printed materials, coffee, and tea. No one will be turned away for lack of funds.

How to fund us:

The Encorepreneur Café is located at NE 15th and Weidler in the Lloyd District
