Among the questions Host Committee members get the most frequently is, “How can I get involved?” The Cleveland Foundation and their partners are putting together a unique opportunity for you, and it kicks off March 12, at 9 a.m. That morning, civic leaders and civic-minded citizens will gather for a morning-long convening to bring neighbors together from across Greater Cleveland. The goal is to identify and discuss the issues we face and to begin to work together across our community toward solutions.
This Cleveland Caucus event is the first in a series of events to be convened over the course of the coming months, including leadership and empowerment events, targeted news coverage by media partners, community-focused events during this summer’s Republican National Convention, debate watch parties, and other initiatives. Organizers say the goals go far beyond the election and are explicitly focused on sustaining Cleveland’s renaissance by connecting more residents to opportunities.
Who should come? Everyone who cares about the community, especially people who have ideas about how to make Greater Cleveland even better and stronger.
What other organizations are involved? Neighborhood Connections, the Cleveland Young Professional Senate, The City Club of Cleveland, ideastream, and Crain's Cleveland Business.
Where is it? Organizers are still firming up details, and they promise to share information through social media and their own websites as soon as they’re available.
How can you learn more? Keep your eye on the social media feeds of the various partners, and you can drop an email to firstname.lastname@example.org (mention “caucus” in the subject).
