Tahoe Talks

Community Conference Calls

The Moonshine Ink team swaps our reporter hats for convener hats, hosting video conference calls on important community topics. Our mission is to be a platform for empathy, ideas, and rebuilding in the weeks and months to come. Bringing people together is a special passion of the paper and we can tell, of our community. We want all walks of life to join. Email tahoetalks@moonshineink.com to be alerted to upcoming events.
