Six months into a yearlong effort to study racial equity and bias in Fort Worth, a city-appointed task force is intently listening to a diverse group of residents talk about issues related to race and culture in Fort Worth.
So far, about 600 residents have participated in the Race and Culture Task Force’s Town Hall and Community Conversations. Over the next two months, residents can share their input at one of 14 town hall meetings — dubbed “Continuing the Conversation” — at locations across Fort Worth. Each meeting will last two hours and provide a forum for sharing ideas and talking with others about the issues facing the community and ideas for improvement.
