Tune-In To The City’s Equity Forum Tonight At 6 PM

The City’s conversation on equity, “Building An Equitable Golden Valley,” will take place tonight 6–7:30 pm virtually.

The forum will provide an open space for community members to share, listen, and reflect on efforts to create equitable experiences for all Golden Valley residents and visitors while also processing the events that have happened over the last several months in Minneapolis and around the country.

Panelists will include Golden Valley Mayor Shep Harris, City Manager Tim Cruikshank, Police Chief Jason Sturgis, Rising TIDES Chair Joelle Allen, and Human Rights Commission member Kyle Scott. Amber Alexander, from the Rising TIDES Task Force, will moderate the forum.
