A week ago we saw our community gather at Mass Market to engage one another in seeking opportunities to
Build Beyond Bias
How beautiful to see Lakelanders take such a GREAT moment in time as we gathered around a Haus table to listen & speak to the hard places in our culture. United City is beyond thrilled to host such a monumental cultural event, that allowed us rise above our circumstances & embrace perspectives of our city’s victories & vices, in the hope of cultivating bridges in the gaps of our society.
We’re so thankful you chose to come engage Q.Commons Lakeland this year! In an effort to invest in relationships that champion the freedom of hope, please share your Q experience & contribution with others. Now it’s ‘up to us’ to help bring healing to the divide we learnt about.
These are just a few ways to follow thru & engage:
- Join Lakeland City Commissioners at the RP Funding Center 6pm on 11/14 for a community forum on whether to move, alter, add to or leave alone the 1910 Munn Park monument.
- The Polk School District is launching a “Community School Initiative” to adopt schools as a organizational partner or volunteer mentor to meet needs of the under-served. Contact the Polk County District Office or your neighborhood school to learn more.
- Participate in PEACE : Polk Ecumenical Action Council for Empowerment as they bring social justice initiatives to strengthen our communities like youth arrest rehabilitation & mental health. This year they are addressing Affordable Housing, to get involved call (863) 686-8665
Bridge Builders don’t always know they are a vital link in helping others grow, because they are not dependent on others to move forward…become a Bridge Builder today!
