CHICAGO — The city will hold six town halls where residents can learn about how officials are trying to prevent violence in Chicago.
City officials will answer attendees’ questions about public safety at the town halls. Five of them will focus on safety in particular regions of the city, while a sixth will be focused on preventing violence among youth, according to a city news release
The town halls will be held in person, though recordings will also be available to people unable to attend. You can register online.
The town halls were originally going to be livestream-only, and there was going to be a Spanish-language one. They were rescheduled due to popularity and so people could participate in person, officials said earlier this week. It was not immediately clear why the Spanish-language town hall was canceled.
Here’s the schedule:
West Side: 10 a.m.-noon Saturday at the Garfield Park Gold Dome Field House, 100 N. Central Park Ave.
South Side: 6-8 p.m. Wednesday at Chicago State University’s Convocation Center, 9501 S. King Drive.
