Emma Copley Eisenberg recently wrote an Op Ed in Time Magazine critical of AmeriCorps VISTA, drawing from her own experience as a VISTA ten years ago. Join us to discuss the piece with the author herself.
Please read the article in advance here: https://time.com/5811820/americorps-member-benefits-limitations-national-service/
We’ll react to the article and also brainstorm solutions to the problems she identifies (that is if you agree with her assessment in the first place!).
Join us for what should be a spirited conversation!
Register here and you’ll be emailed the Zoom link prior to the call: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/104560404986/
