Edina, Minn., July 15, 2021 – Race & Equity Coordinator Heidi Lee will continue the City of Edina’s “Town Talks” with a discussion about how the community’s changing demographics impact the City’s race and equity work. The event will be held 7 to 8 p.m. Monday, July 26, in the Council Chambers of Edina City Hall, 4801 W. 50th St.
Hosted by City Manager Scott Neal, the Town Talk will include a presentation by Lee on the City’s race and equity work, collecting data and the future of the work in Edina. An open forum will follow to allow residents and staff the opportunity to discuss the topic of the night and ask questions.
“Race and equity work has many different layers such as systemic, institutional, interpersonal and internal,” Lee said. “I will provide information to make connections to the different layers of work.”
The Town Talk will be broadcast live on Edina TV and available for online viewing on Facebook Live and through the City’s website. The video and materials for the Town Talk will be available on BetterTogetherEdina.org for a week following the presentation.
