The City of Lee’s Summit’s Human Relations Commission (HRC) invites the community to join “Community Conversations”, a panel discussion to encourage open and diverse discussions in Lee’s Summit. Community Conversations will begin at 6 p.m. in the Council Chambers of City Hall, 220 SE Green St. on Saturday, Oct. 7, 2017.
Discussions are intended to be informative, interactive and thought-provoking. Panel participants include Mayor Randy Rhoads, City Manager Stephen Arbo, MCC President Kirk Nooks, Community Activist Carl Boyd, Police Chief Travis Forbes and Lee’s Summit Cares member Susan Coffman.
The panel will hear pre-recorded video responses from residents and members of the City Council prior to the panel discussion on the following three questions:
- How can Lee’s Summit better engage all people in our community?
- How do we show our residents they are valued and respected?
- How can Lee’s Summit residents openly discuss cultural differences to continue to build our great community?
Attendees will be asked to submit their own questions for additional open “Community Conversations”. Community Conversations is the first of several events being planned by the HRC in an effort to encourage positive relationships throughout the community.
