The City of Mukilteo and Mayor Gregerson will be hosting two upcoming virtual events to begin a conversation about community concerns on policing, equity, inclusion and related issues. On July 1 from 6:00pm to 8:00pm, the City will host a Round Table discussion with invited stakeholders and leaders; the public is welcome to listen in. Chief Kang will do a brief presentation with a discussion to follow. On July 7 from 6:00pm to 8:00pm, there will be a Town Hall and the public is invited to attend and speak.
“I was proud to sign the Obama Foundation’s Mayor’s Pledge, which includes a commitment to review our police use of force policies, engage our community, report our findings and seek to make changes if necessary,” said Mayor Jennifer Gregerson. “This Roundtable will launch our conversation, and the Town Hall provides an opportunity for anyone in our community to weigh in with their stories, experiences and ideas.”
The City has invited a group of interested stakeholders to serve on the roundtable and begin discussions. These stakeholders include those interested in policy reforms, student leaders in Black Lives Matter protests, representatives from community organizations, the City Council, Chief Cheol Kang, Assistant Chief Glen Koen and a representative from the City’s Police Guild.
“We value our strong partnership with the community. This will be a great opportunity to broaden that conversation and learn together,” said Police Chief Kang.
