Our monthly, or bi-monthly, free speakers series that tackles everything from environmental issues and economic development to social change and politics. Started by Lenny Mendonca, the founder and owner of the Brewing Company, Brews and Views serves as both a free public forum and philanthropy; part of the evening dining proceeds benefit the Cabrillo Education Foundation. Times are 6pm to 8pm, unless otherwise noted.

JUNE 13, 2017

We hope you’ll join us Tuesday, June 13th for a conversation with:

  • Lenny Mendonca, moderator and owner of the Half Moon Bay Brewing Company
  • Duf Sundheim, Federal Court Mediator and former Chair, California Republican Party
  • Joan Blades, co-founder of MoveOn, Moms Rising, and Living Room Conversations
  • Manny Capello, City Council Member and former Mayor, City of Saratoga

Hear from conservative and progressive leaders about promising, concrete examples of finding common ground at the local, state, and individual levels. Learn how something as simple as a conversation in a living room or church basement can be used to engage citizens in civic problem-solving and repair our social fabric.

Then, join a Living Room Conversation with six participants from diverse backgrounds to listen and learn from one another and reflect on where the Left and the Right are in fundamental agreement and could find common ground.

RSVP is required. Please bring a friend with differing political views from you (to your left or to your right), if you can! Please RSVP here.

keep calm
