A critical part of good citizenship is being educated on issues and how they effect all reaches of our society and community. To that end, RISE Together Piedmont Triad hosts social justice book club discussions every other month in Winston Salem. Everyone is welcome – come to one, or come to them all. Our discussions are always lively and enlightening, regardless of whether you have read the book.

Books options will be discussed and selected at the previous meeting. Our first books for 2019 will be:
