People's State of the City #GaryPSOTC

  • Gary Public Library 220 W 5th Ave. Gary, IN United States (map)

Black Lives Matter NWI - Gary and Gary Christ United Methodist Church welcome other concerned community members to join us at noon on January 26 at Gary’s main library (5th ave) for a "People's State of the City", a public forum by and for the people.

In advance of the many political speeches and platitudes coming our way this election season, we invite residents to evaluate the state of Gary and its issues for ourselves, and determine ways that current & future Gary officials can shift away from misguided policies and shift towards more transparent government. This progressive forum seeks to begin building a vision for a more equitable and inclusive Gary, from jobs and schools to the environment, the justice system, and more. Community-led and independent of politicians or candidates, this discussion will be concise but will also make space for sharing knowledge and marginalized perspectives. Show up and speak for yourself!
