MLK Jr. Committee Hosting Public Forum on Race Relations

As a result of the recent verdict in the Trayvon Martin/George Zimmerman case, the Martin Luther King Jr. Committee of Santa Barbara is sponsoring a public forum to provide the community an opportunity to have a public conversation regarding race relations in our community.

The forum will be held from 7 to 9 p.m. Tuesday, July 30 at the Louise Lowry Davis Center, 1232 De la Vina St.

Elected officials and other community leaders will be invited to attend.

During the first 75 to 90 minutes, members of the public will be invited to express and share some of their local experiences.

The second part of the forum will be for community leaders to address the issues and concerns that were raised during the public comments period.

The Martin Luther King, Jr. Committee of Santa Barbara has as its mission as follows: to foster positive relationships between the many diverse groups in the Santa Barbara community and the surrounding areas; to sponsor programs and events which exemplify the teachings of Dr. King; to observe and celebrate the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
