Each forum will have a run time of two hours and will include a brief overview of the committee’s work and robust opportunities for residents to participate in small group discussions and share their ideas, concerns, and hopes for the future.

 

Translation and interpretation services, real-time captioning, and child care will be made available upon request. Attendees will have the option to join each forum virtually via Google Meets, which will be posted on Vibrant Denver’s website.
