Team SSRI,

Week 33.

So we are on bag 3 of the Halloween candy we bought too early and said we wouldn’t open. How’s it going at your house?

In 2020 news, “irregardless” is now an official word. Whhhhhy?! I can’t…

November 3rd is so close! Have you voted? I love that voting is coming up in so many conversations:
“So did you vote early?”
“Have you voted?”
“Want to go with me and vote?”
“Did you watch the debate?”
“This was my first time ever going to the polls.”

VOTE!

This 14-year-old girl won a $25K prize for a discovery that could lead to a cure for Covid-19. Speaking of COVID, have you had the chance to fill out our confidential survey, Project Rouse?

Please mark your calendar for November 4th at 12:30 pm for our monthly SSRI Lunch-n-Learn. This month we will watch and discuss the film, Just Mercy.

Best,
Courtney
