Dickert sets two 'conversations' on minority issues

Mayor John Dickert will hold two "Community Conversations" aimed at building upon what he calls "Racine’s greatest asset: its diversity."

The first will take place on Wednesday, March 31, at the Tyler-Domer Community Center, 2301 12th St., and the second on Thursday, April 8, at the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Community Center, 1134 Martin Luther King Drive. Both events are from 5:30 to 7 p.m., and are open to the public.

Dickert said the meetings will be to discuss issues facing the city, and to present information about programs and initiatives that address the minority and low-income population of Racine.

Organizations such as the Community Economic Development Corporation, African American Business Professional Association, Hispanic Business Alliance, Hispanic Business and Professionals Association, Racine Vocational Ministries, First Choice Apprenticeship Program, Wisconsin Women’s Business Initiative Corporation, Racine County Workforce Development, Racine/Kenosha Community Action Agency, Inc., Racine Unified School District, and the 2010 Complete Count Census Committee will be invited to set up tables with information.
