In response to the outcry of pain across our nation following the George Floyd tragedy, we invite all in the community to join us for a virtual conversation on social and racial equity in North Mecklenburg.
On Thursday, August 20, a panel of elected and Town officials, as well as law enforcement officers and community leaders, will openly discuss inequities in our community and how all citizens can help turn the tide.
We hope this dialogue will lend itself to greater mutual understanding and promote peaceful relationships with people of all backgrounds.
The general public is invited to view this discussion and submit questions in advance for the panelists to address during the conversation. To contribute to the discussion, RSVP below and you will be prompted to submit your question or comment.
