From Idea to Reality: The Evolution of Berkshire Unity Through Community

November 18, 2020

When America witnessed the murder of George Floyd, WE knew the only way to change the course of the future and prevent history from being repeated was to start having uncomfortable conversations about topics that matter.  Berkshire Unity Through Community was born from a weekly Zoom meeting orchestrated by our Co-Founder, Dan Joslyn, and the topic was UNITY. 

During the meeting we decided we had talked was time to put our CONVERSATION INTO ACTION!

Are you ready to join our mission and help keep our neighborhoods and communities diverse, supported, and thriving even in tough times?

It's Time Berkshire County

All Hands In!
