Fulfilling a commitment to convene citizens in a dialogue about discrimination, Mayor Lenny Curry announced today a series of Community Conversations he is hosting over the next several weeks. The first of three sessions will be held Tuesday, Nov. 17 at 6 p.m. at Florida State College at Jacksonville’s downtown campus, located at 501 W. State St.
“In recent years, organizations across the country have been leading discussions and spirited debates about this topic,” said Mayor Lenny Curry. “While there are widespread opinions and thoughts surrounding it, I am most concerned about Jacksonville citizens and commit to learning more to determine local solutions that address local needs.”
Designed to inform and educate the public, the Community Conversations will engage stakeholders in a series of discussions to identify gaps, needs, and opportunities for Jacksonville citizens.
