Bold Local Leadership: Communities Create Change 

Tuesday, May 4, 2021

4:30 pm ET/3:30 pm CT

Now more than ever, the deep divisions in our nation seem to penetrate every topic or issue that arises. Much of this is fueled by a resistance to challenges to the status quo and concurrently, a demand for equitable accountability and change. These divergent ways of thinking have stifled our ability to successfully address the everyday issues that affect our communities. These conditions force our elected leaders at every level of government to make difficult decisions. This conversation will explore the need for bold local leadership that is unafraid of and undeterred by opposition as they work to address the systems of inequity and injustice that their communities face.
