Sharing and Close

"I really enjoyed Mayor Jimmy Mata's keynote address. Good speaker, touching notes."

"I love the rap songs too, it was very interactive and engaging."

"I was thoroughly impressed with the diversity, not only represented in presenters' ethnic backgrounds, but also the variety of their experience, organizations they represented and topics they presented on. The mix of large group presentations and smaller breakout sessions that allowed participants to interact struck a perfect balance."

"I enjoyed the keynote and the energy in the 'big room.' I really enjoyed meeting new people interested in this work."

"Meeting others who care and want to take action."

"Lots of time to interact with others."
