In Sussex county, there was the first town hall meeting set up in Delaware. People came to the city of Seaford, DE to figure out what the policy was all about. This being the first meeting, the team was nervous, but lucky our guest speaker, Lucy Allain, was ready to tackle the meeting and any question thrown at her.with the community informed, we counted this as our first successful meeting, with more to come.

On these past two days, the team has set up two events back to back. The first one was in Wilmington, where we went into more detail about the policy and what is to await from it. After the event, we had the honor to meet two new members to the team, Meanwhile In Sussex, The second event was held with great results as well.
