From Ward 6 Councilman Steve K’s newsletter:
“The acronym is RAW. It’s a group of Tucsonans who have been meeting virtually talking about the social issues of the day. They’re largely focused on race relations. The hope is to create a space in which views of all sorts can be shared, and action steps developed. They’re meeting again on MLK day, Monday, January 18th at 2pm. Please mark it down if you’d like to be a part of the conversation.
The theme for the upcoming meeting is “How Can I Contribute to the Community?” They’ll begin in a large group and then break out into smaller one’s – likely ending back in the large group to share what they discussed.
This will be a Zoom meeting. You register by going to this site: https://forms.office.com/Pages/ResponsePage.aspx?id=4FBwvMxLCUiSReqLZQhIZYrlTAD6PzRHp-gc4Om-8kpUREVMNE9MUFJTQk5UMk8wNEYwVjMzTVRHQi4u”
