Open Coffees are a gathering for Change Makers of all types and serve as an opportunity to meet some of Omaha's most impacting and influential people. Each week we invite a special guest to join us for a Facebook Live session to share their personal story and allow attendees to ask key questions that might inspire new ideas and spark action! Before and after, attendees enjoy connecting in-person with an incredible room full of people making a difference in our community! For those unable to attend, follow the Open Coffee Omaha Facebook page 9am every Saturday morning to catch the live broadcast and post your questions for the guest under the live stream!
