Acworth Community Conversation
On behalf of the Mayor, Board of Aldermen, and City Staff we would like to invite you to be a part of a special community conversation taking place on Wednesday, June 10 at 1:00 p.m. The conversation will focus on current events that include race, prejudice, social injustice, and strategies to bring our community closer together. The format will include a panel of community leaders that will have dialogue on the topics.
Due to COVID-19 group size restrictions, this will be a virtual experience that is streamed live on the City of Acworth Facebook Page (facebook.com/CityofAcworth). We encourage you to participate in helping us formulate the discussion. Send your questions for the panel into firstname.lastname@example.org by Tuesday, June 9 at noon. We will do our best to address as many questions as possible in our allotted time and will consolidate frequently asked or similar questions in nature. For questions on the event, contact us at email@example.com.
