Urban League asks for citizens’ input in town hall meeting

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - To fulfill its mission to provide meaningful programs to the community, the Urban League of Greater Columbus is asking residents of the city of Columbus to participate in an open forum on Tuesday, April 30 at 6 p.m. at the Columbus Public Library.

During this meeting, board member and citizens will discuss programs that the city's residents want to see created or re-established by the Urban League in 2013.

According to Urban League Board Chairman Susan Cooper, "We are slated to introduce 3 to 5 programs by June 1, so we are inviting all citizens to come be a part of the movement to empower our community and change lives."

"The Urban League of Greater Columbus is looking for constructive feedback on programs that can provide positive impact on the community," Cooper continued.  "This can include jobs programs, housing programs, small business classes, health seminars, and more. Economic and racial background does not matter, neither does the scale of the idea you want to submit because we are here to serve the entire community of Columbus. This town hall meeting gives you an opportunity to share with us the ideas that will allow us to serve the city of Columbus better. "

For more information, please contact Program Chair Corey Reed at (770) 500-0634 or PR Chair Danita Lloyd at (706) 593-7614.
