Unfourtunately, it was not close to what I expected. It was porgrammed to start at 7 and end at 10 PM. However, I showed up around 8:45PM and all the food was gone and no other activities were offered. Very poorly organized.

I thought the event was very powerful. The speaker was great and touched on so many points that we can all put into practice to make our communities a better place. I thoroughly enjoyed Symone Sanders speech.
