Marketplace Talks (1 of 9 – Hampton Roads)

January 27 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm EST
Sentara CarePlex Hospital Complex – Conference Rooms, 3000 Coliseum Drive
Hampton, VA 23666 United States

“MARKETPLACE TALKS”…In order to build a sustainable transactional marketplace there must exist a community. Thus, we need to have participants feel comfortable that there is a commonality of values and identity regardless of their occupations, business or daily work (whether compensated or not compensated). This will insure that everyone will have something to offer in the marketplace.

We invite you to join us for a series of nine Marketplace Talks. Marketplace Talks is a conversation series that takes place over a meal. It allows people to discuss current events that are impacting our local, national and international communities. Topics in the series include issues related to privilege, violence and mental health in our society. Participants will discuss these topics and learn how they can connect to available resources. The goal of the conversations is to promote the flourishing and sustainability of our churches and communities.

This Marketplace Talk will be held on Monday, January 28, 2020 in the Conference Room of Sentara Careplex Hospital, located at 3000 Coliseum Drive, Hampton Virginia. Dinner will be served at 5:30pm. We will begin the series with “Mental Health: What’s Behind the Rise of Youth Suicides.” The conversation will include individuals who have been impacted, advocates and experts who will share their experiences and expertise.

The program series was created in partnership with the Hampton Roads Made To Flourish City Network, City of Hampton Unity Commission and the City of Hampton Youth & Young Adult Opportunities.
