Mayor to host second African American, Black community meeting Oct. 14

Virtual meeting from 7-9 p.m. Oct. 14

The second African American/Black Community quarterly meeting open to the public will be held via Zoom from 7 to 9 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 14.

The meeting, hosted by Federal Way Mayor Jim Ferrell, will feature a conversation with members of the Federal Way Black Collective as well as an opportunity for public comment from attendees.

“This is another opportunity for us to not only listen to each other, but to share viewpoints, visions and how we see our community moving forward,” Ferrell said.

The first meeting took place on July 29 with more than 100 attendees, and proved the grassroots meeting had room to grow in regards to the agenda, meeting layout and goals of each gathering.

Next week’s public forum will feature both the audio and video of those speaking. Organizers are asking those who would like to speak to utilize the Zoom platform tools in order to notify the moderator.

Those interested in participating can also call the Mayor’s Office at 253-835-2402 and request a Zoom invitation via email.

The entire Federal Way City Council is invited, therefore the meeting may serve as a potential council quorum.
