The Arizona Commission of African American Affairs will hold a town hall discussion on Thursday, May 11, in Maricopa. The town hall, themed “Time for Action,” will be held at the Copper Sky, 44345 Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd., meeting room B.
The discussion will be 6-8 p.m. The meeting is free and public is encouraged to attend.
The town hall meetings are held throughout the state to gather information from African American citizens to understand the unique issues affecting their specific community.
“Our goal is to compile a report to the three branches of state government that can articulate the issues of concern of the citizens. As you well know, what is going on in Flagstaff is different than what happens in Sierra Vista,” said Cloves Campbell, executive director of the commission.
Maricopa City Councilman Henry Wade said, “The City of Maricopa is honored to host the Arizona’s Commission on African-American Affairs and Town Hall. We look forward to a very productive meeting and great community turnout.”
In addition to the town hall, an official meeting of the Arizona Commission of African American Affairs will be held at 2 p.m. in the Maricopa City Hall Executive Conference Room, 39700 W. Civic Center Plaza. This meeting is also open to the public.
