Pathways | Innovative Impact Panels


In partnership with: 

Thursday, November 15th - 2 Panels!

There is some much good work happening in nonprofits in WS/FC and our community that on November 15th we’re bringing you two panels!

The number one recommendation of Mayor Joines’ 2017 Poverty Thought Force was “coordination and visibility:” enhancing residents’ awareness of existing programs/policies and better coordination among them. In an effort to contribute to both of those key outcomes, Love Out Loud and HandsOn Northwest North Carolina host a monthly session on social good happening across the greater Forsyth County region. You’ll hear from leaders who are doing great work in:

7pm : Union

Join us for a session with the co-writers of a new musical.

In February of 2019, Love Out Loud is partnering with the Forum on Faith and Culture and the North Carolina Black Theater Reportory to bring a new musical to Winston-Salem called "Union."

Greg Thompson and Sho Baraka, the co-writers of the musical, will be with us to talk about "Union" and their process of development of this significant effort.

6pm : Education

If your organization would like to be considered for participation please contact Liz Kaiman
