Antioch Council to hold Bridging the Gap virtual round table discussion Tuesday on racial injustice & police-community relations

By Allen Payton

The Antioch City Council will hold what is expected to be the first of several community forums, labeled as Bridging the Gap – A Virtual Round Table Discussion, to “better understand and address racial injustice and police-community relations” on Tuesday night, June 30, 2020.

The forums are a result of two special meetings held last week by the council to discuss forming a two-council member ad hoc committee on police reform. On a split vote of 3-2 the council instead decided to hold community forums with all council members participating, along with the Police Crime Prevention Commission.

The meeting will include the following elements:

1) Mayor and Council Members Opening Comments

2) Public Comments

3) Discuss and consider comments from the community.

4) Discuss and make recommendations on future agenda items and meetings

The community is invited to join the conversation to share their perspectives, ask questions, and to listen. Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the roundtable discussion will be done remotely via Zoom. If you wish to make a public comment, you may do so any of the following ways: (1) by filling out an online speaker card, located at https://www.antiochca.gov/speaker_card, (2) by emailing the City Clerk prior to or during the meeting at cityclerk@ci.antioch.ca.us, or (3) to speak, please register for this discussion using link below: https://us02web.zoom.us/…/register/WN_s7jzT-PkSdei6BW4AUC0wA.
