Commonweal Local Reader Communities

In response to reader requests, we are beginning to organize local discussion groups made up of Commonweal subscribers and other interested participants. These small groups will convene throughout the year for events that can include talking about recent issues or specific articles in Commonweal, book discussions, movie nights, and occasional speakers from the Commonweal staff. The frequency and type of events will depend on the interests of each local community.

Currently we have coordinators organizing groups in the following localities:

If you would like to attend a local meeting, please write to us at local@commonwealmagazine.org so that we can pass your contact information along to the group organizers. They'll be in touch with information about the first meeting, and will ask for your ideas about group topics and logistics.

If you would like to help to organize a discussion group in your area, please write to local@commonwealmagazine.org. We'll contact subscribers and Commonweal Associates in your area, publicize the group, and work with you to help get things started successfully.
