Conversations and Trainings

Local Voices Network: Upcoming Conversations

Due to the current pandemic, LVN is moving all of our conversations online using Zoom.

If you are feeling stir crazy and disconnected, please join us for a virtual LVN Conversation! We provide the Zoom Room and the facilitator. You get to shorten the social distance while maintaining physical distance. See dates and registration info here. Our upcoming conversations will focus on building community in the time of social distancing and public health and safety concerns.

Early Education Conversations

Local Voices Network and the Massachusetts Association for the Education of Young Children are partnering to gather the stories of those in the early education field: providers, administrators, business owners, parents, and advocates! Our partnership is designed to amplify the perspectives of the early education community in the wake of COVID-19, the process of re-opening, and the future of the field. These conversations will be recorded (audio only) and be available to participants, policymakers, and local members of the media.

We will be gathering conversations about the reopening process the first three Wednesday evenings of July from 6:30 - 7:45 pm.

July 8, 6:30 - 7:45

July 15, 6:30 - 7:45

July 22, 6:30 - 6:45 pm

Volunteer as a Facilitator

You can find upcoming Facilitator Trainings on our digital resources hub.

Bring LVN to Your Organization or Community

LVN is a powerful, inclusive and transparent tool for engaging and connecting communities. We are partnering with organizations such as community centers, tenants organizations, youth development organizations, and social justice causes to host conversations about critical topics across stakeholder groups. In 2020, LVN is focusing on conversations about COVID-19, first and foremost, and also committed to amplifying youth voice (both high school and college students). Reach out to us if you want to explore using LVN as a tool for amplifying underheard voices in your network!
