flyerAssemblymember Eloise Gómez Reyes is hosting The Bridge: Interfaith Town Hall on Friday, August 14th. This year’s Bridge event will be held virtually with the purpose to explore how faith based leaders are responding to address the needs of the community during the COVID-19 pandemic.

This free town hall will be held on ZOOM and will feature a diverse panel of faith leaders in our community. The goal is to support the role religious and secular organizations play in policy development and social action.
