Community invited to dialogue on diversity

Posted: Friday, October 20, 2017

The City of Huntington Prevention Task Force has planned an upcoming Community Dialogue on Poverty to take place Monday, October 30. The dialogue will be held at the Huntington City-Township Public Library from 6 to 7:30 p.m.

The purpose of the Community Dialogues on Diversity series is to bring people together around topics that affect our community and to hear different thoughts and opinions in order to understand one another more fully in diversity and disagreement. These conversations align with and put into action the Huntington City Council mission statement which reads that Huntington will be ‘a community of civility and inclusion, where diversity is honored and differences are respected.’

The dialogue will include a panel of four speakers to answer questions based on the evening’s topic. Audience members will also have the opportunity to submit questions.

October’s topic is “Stories of Poverty,” in which community members will speak regarding the reality of living in financial hardship. On the following Monday, November 6, there will be a poverty simulation at 6 p.m. in the iAB Heritage Hall at the Huntington County Fairgrounds. This will serve as a follow-up to the community dialogue. This event is free and open to the public, but an RSVP is requested. For questions or to RSVP for the Poverty Simulation, please call Victory Noll Center at (260) 200-1740.
