Monday, May 8, 6 p.m., in the Community Room at the Lansing Public Library
LANSING, Ill. (April 24, 2023) – “[Common Ground participants] want Lansing to be the kind of place where every neighborhood knows how to make newcomers feel welcome, where citizens and police are working together to build community, where the default reaction to people who are different is curiosity and hospitality rather than fear or suspicion,” said an article reporting on the February 6 meeting of participants in the Common Ground project. That meeting comprised nearly 50 members of the “racial understanding” project that launched in Lansing in 2020.
One outcome of the February meeting was to open up future meetings to the broader community, without requiring enrollment in the program first. May 8 will be the first such public meeting.
The goal is to provide a forum for change-makers in the community to gather and share ideas for influencing the culture of Lansing.
Though registration is not required for participation, RSVPs will help the library prepare the room and provide enough seating. Interested participants are invited to email their RSVP intentions to The Lansing Journal, who will moderate the public meeting, which begins at 6 p.m.:

I believe the meeting starts at 6:00 PM.
That’s correct. The date and time are in the subhead at the top of the page, and now I’ve added the time to the paragraph regarding RSVPs as well. Plus, now we have it in the comments! Change-makers are welcome to join us for brainstorming and conversation on Monday, May 8, at 6 p.m., in the Community Room at the Lansing Public Library.
