Guest Speakers – Pramila Jayapal, Rick Larsen, & Linda Coburn
April 15, 2020, join us at 7pm for another ‘Online’ Meeting.
The meeting waiting room will open a few minutes before.
This meeting will not be in person. Due to widely known health and safety concerns with COVID-19, the 21st LD Dems are conscientiously practicing social distancing to help reduce spread of the CoronaVirus. Since we should all be staying at home as much as possible, we will be using an online tool called ZOOM, and using our phones/computers from the comfort of our own homes. We did this last month and the March 18th meeting was a success, so here we go again!
