Monday, April 23, 2-3:30 PM: Fostering Civil Discourse in the Neighborhood

Speaker: Basant Virdee, Communications Coordinator at The University of Arizona National Institute for Civil Discourse

Soon after the tragic shootings in Tucson on January 8, 2011 the National Institute for Civil Discourse became a reality and now has offices at the University of Arizona and in Washington, D.C. Currently the Institute is concentrating on building healthy conversation skills in Arizona, Iowa, Ohio and Maine. Basant Virdee will facilitate conversation opportunities that help people listen to and learn from each other. This cordial atmosphere of mutual respect and active listening encourages and enhances civil discourse. Join us as we sharpen our skills in civil discourse and learn more about Fostering Civil Discourse in the Neighborhood.

What is SNAP?

SNAP stands for Sunrise Neighborhood Assistance Program. It is a dedicated group of your neighbors who provide FREE support services to disabled or elderly residents in the area bordered by Craycroft, Sunrise, Kolb/Sabino and River roads.

Its mission is to provide an array of “neighbors helping neighbors” volunteer services, educational programs and social events that assist and support residents who choose to age-in-place in their own homes – for as long as possible.

Who can use SNAP?

Any resident (55+) within the service area can use SNAP services and participate in SNAP programs and events.

Is SNAP really FREE?

Absolutely! Thanks to its volunteers, SNAP clients pay nothing for services they receive. However, there are expenses to keep SNAP operating and for those it needs your help.

As an IRS-designated 501(c)(3) organization, SNAP relies on tax deductible charitable contributions. EVERY DONATION HELPS.
