Is Norman an inclusive community?
Do all of our citizens feel respected and represented in the business, education and social sectors?
Are we as a community taking advantage of the economic and social opportunities represented by diversity?
Students, faculty, staff and residents of Norman are invited to respond to these questions and address other related issues at a public meeting sponsored by the University of Oklahoma, the City of Norman, and the Norman Chamber of Commerce scheduled for Tuesday, February 3rd, at 6:30 p.m. in the Oklahoma Memorial Union. The meeting will be open to the public and all interested community members are invited and encouraged to attend. Local representatives of the National Issues Forum and members of the City of Norman Human Rights Commission will assist with the meeting.
“What we hope to provide again at this second Inclusive Community Discussion is a safe and respectful place for people to discuss whether we are a community that is genuinely open to the participation and opinions of all of our residents,” said Mayor Cindy Rosenthal, who is also a member of the OU faculty. Some of the issues to be discussed are public safety, transportation, housing, employment, and economic opportunity.
