See you there!

We cannot wait to see you at the Spring Together Retreat! Thank you for registering, and thank you for wanting to come together as a community. It’s time!

Your health and safety

We will gather on Wednesday, May 18 at the Craneway Pavilion in Richmond and on May 19-21 on field trips. We will follow Contra Costa County Department of Public Health guidelines which are:

  • Please stay home if you feel sick.
  • Vaccination against COVID-19 is strongly recommended.
  • Wearing masks is recommended.
  • We encourage attendees to take a COVID test on May 17 before attending on May 18.
  • Respect others’ comfort levels. Please ask for consent before shaking hands, etc.

Tuesday, May 17 from 12:00-1:30pm on Zoom

We will kick off the Retreat with an unscripted conversation with Peter Forbes about land justice. Peter is co-founder of First Light, an ambitious effort between 65 organizations in Maine and the Wabanaki people to increase their presence and sovereignty on the land. This conversation will tee up conversations we’ll have the next day at the Craneway.
