Council President Katz will be joined by Anna Hargrave, executive director of the Community Foundation, and Julie Verratti, co-owner of Denizens Brewing Company. The discussion will focus on bringing together community organizations, local businesses, nonprofits and residents in ongoing efforts to provide economic relief from the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as how local businesses are adapting and increasing their resiliency during the pandemic.

I look forward to discussing how we can support them and the work they are doing.”
