WHAT: This is the first post-2013 Election Town Hall in a series of regular Town Halls organized by Hip Hop Caucus Detroit. Under less urgent circumstances, each Town Hall has covered a specific topic. Now, with the city’s bankruptcy moving forward, and the daily struggles for the city’s poor to survive compounding under extraordinarily challenging circumstances, this critically-timed Town Hall will broach a comprehensive set of issues: the city’s and residents’ economic challenges, civil and human rights issues (including violence and racial profiling), schools and education, environmental health issues, and voting rights and the future of the democratic process in the city. Radio-One has partnered with Hip Hop Caucus Detroit on promoting this Town Hall event.
