Free Together - Free Apart Zoom Series

About

The Free Together – Free Apart Zoom series premiered in April 2020, at the beginning of the Covid-19 lockdown. As offices closed and conferences were canceled, VCFS wanted to find a way to support its community. We initially created “Free Together” to provide a place to discuss quarantining with families, couples, and adult children. Our shift to online was met with an immediate and overwhelming response, not just in Vermont but throughout the US and Canada. With the generosity of our sponsor Pomerleau Real Estate, this series is now part of our ongoing programming. Topics have included racism, polarization, interviews with experts in Bowen theory. Please see below for the full list of our past events in this series,
