series begins on Tuesday, June 30 from 7 to 8:30 p.m. | ZOOM Town Hall
A series of conversations about racial equality in our hometown

As our beloved Tallahassee/Leon County community joins others around the nation in the important unfinished work to make the promise of equality a reality, constructive conversation helps to illuminate the path to progress and meaningful change. In that spirit, a group of community leaders will share diverse perspectives about critical and relevant issues in a special series of ZOOM Town Hall presentations — presented by The Village Square in partnership with Bethel Missionary Baptist Church, the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Northern District of Florida, and Sachs Media Group — beginning on Tuesday, June 30th, from 7-8:30 p.m.

As Americans unite in a shared mission about the civil rights issues of our time in the aftermath of the tragic killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis, former Tallahassee Democrat publisher Skip Foster will moderate a dialogue and take questions from the public for the first program “Equality in Life: Justice and Law Enforcement.” Subsequent Tuesday evening topics include “Equality in Life: Business and Growth,” facilitated by Heidi Otway, President of SalterMitchell PR; and “Equality in Life: Government, Schools and the Future,” Facilitated by Governmental Affairs Consultant Lila Jaber with Gunster Law Firm.

You can view the results of the Sachs Media Group Survey on equality in our hometown here.
