#BnBLive Presents Corona Conversations: A Happy Hour with Bourbon 'n BrownTown
BrownTown continues to check in with each other and our broader community on coronavirus and the interconnected crises surrounding it. With four weeks in, we've talked with Brian Sauder of Faith in Place and Cierra Norris, Chicago defense attorney. Join us this Friday and the weeks after as we continue to dialogue, share space, and work to better our world on the other end of COVID-19.
Tune in, sip somethin’ good, and hang out with the gang! Tag @soapboxpo #BnBLive with questions or respond to a recent posts on social media.

As you know, many businesses, non-profits, especially artists and cultural creators have been financially hit by the pandemic. Unfortunately, SoapBox was not immune. Consider making a tax-deductible donation to support us and our broader community work towards a world we believe in and art that reflects that vision.
