As communities across the nation continue to protest unfair treatment of citizens, Daytona Beach Mayor Derrick Henry has started an equity initiative so the community can come together to help take steps to achieve the dream of a bias-free society.
“It is incumbent upon every citizen, neighborhood, institution and business to respond to what I view as an opportunity to have thought-provoking conversations, and establish sensible equity approaches for our community,” said Mayor Henry. “There is a role for every segment of our society, including business, education, law enforcement, healthcare and government to make a difference for others in our community.”
The Mayor hosted a virtual listening session that was open to the public Monday, June 29.
Following the listening session, focus groups will work together during the next six months. Focus groups are: criminal justice, education, health/social services, media/business and neighborhood/clergy.
This is an opportunity for community members to provide constructive feedback on equity issues in our community. All listening sessions will be virtual.
