City Council and School Board Candidates Forum at All Saints Church

Join City Conversations, with opening remarks offered by Occidental College Professor Peter Dreier, for a lively dialogue with the candidates for Pasadena City Council and PUSD School Board as they address Dreier's report on the "Tale of Two Cities," Tuesday, March 1, from 6:30 p.m. in the All Saints Church Forum.

Dreier's report documents the wide disparity between rich and poor in Pasadena, and the questions facilitated by the City Conversations Strategic Planning Members will center around how candidates will address our city’s need for more jobs, affordable housing, and a better educational system. All candidates have been invited to participate.

The School Board Candidate Forum begins at 6:30 p.m. and the City Council Candidate Forum begins at 7:45 p.m. The event is sponsored by City Conversations, a group of community leaders formed by the Office for Creative Connections at All Saints Church to promote policies and practices that create a just and peaceful community, and to identify and eradicate policies and practices that perpetuate racial and ethnic inequities.

For more information contact Catherine Swanson at 626.583.2750 or All Saints Church is located at 132 N. Euclid Avenue, Pasadena, 91101.
