Ground Rules for the Meeting
We aim to hold the meeting in an Inclusive and Respectful Climate. In particular, please abide by the following rules:
Be Respectful. The Town Hall should be a place where we listen and converse with respect and empathy. Participants should be thoughtful and respectful when making comments.
Take Responsibility. A careful examination about racial injustice and taking meaningful actions against it are long overdue. It is especially important for non-POC community members to recognize this. The conversation may be difficult. We should all please bring an open mind, own our responsibilities, and strive our best to do better.
