Agenda 360 event explores vibrant, inclusive neighborhoods in Cincinnati USA

Agenda 360 invites you to participate in its first Transformational Dialogue on Friday, June 5, at University of Cincinnati Kaplan Theater.

 

Vibrant, inclusive neighborhoods will be the topic of the event which will be facilitated by a showing of the upcoming PBS documentary The New Neighbors: How One Town Created A Vibrant, Integrated Suburb, by award-winning filmmaker, and Clifton resident, Andrea Torrice. This film tells the moving story of how a suburban town in New Jersey successfully reversed segregation and built a vibrant, integrated community.

 

“This film provides a roadmap for communities in the Greater Cincinnati area to help revitalize themselves through a strategy of stable integration programs that have worked,” said Torrice, who will be present at the event.

 

Following the screening, participants will be invited to participate in a discussion about the region’s diverse neighborhoods and ways we can further strengthen and promote intentionally-integrated communities in our region. After the discussion, viewers are invited to take the opportunity to “walk the talk” of integration in a small way by having dinner at one of the great ethnic restaurants in the neighborhoods that surround UC.

 

“Community input helped form Agenda 360 priorities and being a more welcoming and inclusive region is essential.” said Myrita Craig, executive director of Agenda 360. “Creating opportunities to discuss how we can move forward together as a region will be the focus of Agenda 360 Transformational Dialogues like the event scheduled on June 5.”

 

Proceeds from this event help fund the Greater Cincinnati Commitment Alliance, a group of organizations promoting “The Greater Cincinnati Commitment” to be part of the change to make our region a welcoming and inclusive model for the nation and the world.

 

When and where: 6:00 – 7:30 p.m., June 5, University of Cincinnati’s DAAP Building, Room 5401.

 

Suggested donation: $10; free to UC students, faculty and staff.
