Cleveland revives race relation forums
First one will be Tuesday at 6 p.m. at Cleveland's City Hall rotunda.

Cleveland City Hall:

The city is reviving a series of forums that tackle diversity issues.

The first forum will be held 6 p.m. Tuesday at the City Hall rotunda. After that, the city plans to host four diversity forums every year. Theasha Daniely with the Department of Community Relations in Cleveland says people have asked the city to bring back the forums. She says the upcoming forum has nothing to do with the racial controversies over early voting in Ohio.

“We are doing this because it is our charter and we have not done this in a while and we’re looking back at what we should be doing," Daniely says. "This is why we decided it is time to move forward with the race-relations forums." 

Although it’s titled “Race Relations Forums," Daniely says its scope extends to all minority groups. Panelists at the upcoming forum include representatives from the Council of Islamic Relations, the LGBT Center of Greater Cleveland and the Diversity Center of Northeast Ohio. 

Listener Comments:

I only ask that black folks show some interest in striving for racial harmony, racial unity and bringing blacks and whites closer together. Please, a little less of the us, we, our people, our community, our neighborhood, etc. Where is love?
