WE NEED TO LISTEN! On September 20, Keith Lamont Scott was shot by a Charlotte-Mecklenburg police officer when he stepped from an SUV parked outside of his University City apartment. The shooting sparked weeks of protests that nearly tore the city apart.
The protests, however, were not only a reaction to the shooting, but a release of built up frustration with growing inequality in the city. A city that ranks at the bottom of economic mobility so much so that if you are born poor in Charlotte you are likely to die poor says a study by the Equality of Opportunity project.
Come listen to the voices of those who have been impacted by these disparities. Hear the concerns of those who say Charlotte’s searing lack of mobility is proof that the American Dream is dead for a large portion of the city.
Join this listening session to help Charlotte figure out “where we go from here?” and the best ways to address these and other nagging issues.
Speakers will include: Toussaint Romain, Rev. Amantha Barbee, Braxton Winston, Danielle Hilton, Meko McCarthy and others.

Join us on Monday, June 5 at First Methodist Church at 501 N Tryon St, Charlotte, NC 28202

Speakers will include: Toussaint Romain, Rev. Amantha Barbee, Braxton Winston, Danielle Hilton, Meko McCarthy and others.
