How are the inner city youth of Cleveland faring? What are our community organizations doing to address their struggles and bring solutions to improve their well-being?
Former Cleveland Mayor Carl Stokes identified five key elements essential to building an inclusive city: “Improved educational attainment, affordable and viable housing, better health care delivery, meaningful training and jobs, transparent community-oriented policing and advancements in the social and environmental factors that surround these elements must be a priority.”
Join us as a panel of representatives from five Cleveland nonprofits share the work they are doing to address Mayor Stokes’ pillars of inclusivity:
Food and Nutrition: Cleveland Food Bank
Arts: Karamu House
Shelter and Homelessness: YWCA’s A Place 4 Me
Workforce Development: Youth Opportunities Unlimited
Safety and Health: NEOMED-Cleveland State University
Margaret Bernstein, Director of Advocacy & Community Initiatives and Executive Producer, We The People at WKYC-TV, will serve as the moderator.
