Come to REACH! last general meeting of the year! Reflect on your experience in a community space or just get to know about the work that we do in REACH! See how the skills you have learned through community events can apply to post graduation work or your future career! Why is it important for you to have a community in Berkeley and what have you learned from it?
Come join us at REACH!’s 6th General Meeting: AzN PryDe is Back!
