Our Issue Groups
We have formed five issue groups: Education, Law Enforcement, Jim Crow, Limited Presence, Employment & Income Gap.
The Summit successfully put community members in Montgomery County on a course of action. After the summit, the Steering Committee members and willing participants organized into six issue groups representing the areas outlined in 2012 by the focus groups, eventually whittling down the six groups to five: employment and income gap, education, law enforcement, limited presence, and Jim Crow/white privilege. These working groups continued to meet and take action on these items, reporting their progress at subsequent meetings in June 2013 and January 2014.
