Writer Geof Kozeny describes an intentional communities as, "a group of people who have chosen to live together with a common purpose, working cooperatively to create a lifestyle that reflects their shared core values." What a wonderfully counter-cultural idea! Andrea Scapinello has lived in two different intentional communities and has supported young adults to live in their own intentional community. Join us as Andrea shares her stories and reflections about the power and importance of living in an intentional community.
Andrea's community development work has brought her around the world and back again. She has a professional passion for social justice education and nonprofit work. Andrea has many roles in life. Among them she is a family member, friend, community member, amateur foodie, and artist.

WRAPPING OUR MINDS AROUND GENDER IDENTITY
What would it be like to wake up one morning with your current sense of identity, but in a different type of body? What makes up our sense of manliness, womanliness and other genders anyway? Considering these questions and more can help us be more open and understanding toward people whose experience of gender is different from our own. Come explore ways of understanding gender identity as we celebrate the beginning of Winter Pride Week.
