On November 18, Monitoring Team members Ron Ward, Matthew Barge, and Ian Warner engaged in a community forum with members of the Urban League's "Career Bridge" program and many other community members at the Lem's Life Enrichment Bookstore in Columbia City.
The Monitoring Team updated attendees on the current state of progress with respect to the Consent Decree. The Team fielded questions from numerous audience members about their concerns and experiences. The conversation was direct and valuable, and the Team thanks participants for their engagement.
The "Career Bridge" program, the Urban League, and the Monitoring Team pledged at the conclusion of the event that the Monitor would return in the near future to continue the important conversations that were engaged on November 18.
