Metro Region Fall Conference

Thank you to those who attended the Metro Region Fall Conference on October 3, 2018.

We were pleased to hear from keynote Jason Sole, advocate for criminal justice reform and author of From Prison to PhD. We also held four different breakout sessions throughout the day.

Special thanks to Meals on Wheels for hosting and sponsoring lunch.

We look forward to seeing you in 2019!
