The first forum will include a panel discussion with Mayor McMillan, City of Clarksville Police Chief Al Ansley, NAACP President Jimmie Garland and one of the leaders of the Coalition of Concerned Citizens organization, Pastor Willie Freeman.

There will also be time allotted for questions and/or comments from the attendees.

“What we’ve all learned is that this kind of serious and thoughtful discussion is what is needed in our communities to begin to address some issues and challenges that are not always easy to talk about,” said Mayor McMillan. “I don’t expect we will be able to walk away after this first forum with all the answers we need. This is going to be the next step in sharing information, concerns and ideas for a better Clarksville.”

Future forums will include representatives from different organizations and may include a broader range of topics as the discussions evolve.
