TYLER, Texas (KETK) – Let’s Talk Tyler hosted a virtual town hall meeting discussing the generational aspect of race relations Thursday.
Dr. Pamela Phoenix, founder of ‘Let’s Talk Tyler,’ moderated the discussion with millennials focusing on how the community can move forward together from a racial and generational aspect in the wake of national protests over the death of George Floyd at the hands of a Minneapolis police officer.
“We have to come to a place of unification in race, culture, nationality and age,” Phoenix said. “The time has come for us to identify and implement strategies and obtain knowledge to address and resolve racial disparities and tensions together.”
Phoenix is a community activist and commissioner on the city’s Planning and Zoning Commission.
Panelists slated to be part of the discussion include:
- Cornelius Shackelford, Sr.
- Veronica Turner
- Dwyane McAllister, Jr.
- Cierra Evans
- Nancy Rangel
- Paulina Pedroza
- Nick Pesina
- April Munoz
- Jamie Slaten-Mims
- Kaitlyn Porterfield
