Akron, OH – The Young Black Professionals Coalition (YBPC) will host the "All-Access Akron: A Community Conversation" Town Hall Forum, Tuesday, Oct. 11 in the auditorium of the Akron-Summit County Public Library, located at 60 South High Street in Downtown Akron.

The event, which begins at 6 p.m., is designed to address many of the issues plaguing the African American community as well as race relations between citizens and police officers. YBPC believes that true change has to start with us as individuals. This city-wide conversation will include a panel of politicians, community leaders, clergy, members of the media, citizens and students to discuss some of these issues as well as proposed solutions.

The event will be moderated and have an opportunity for members in the audience to ask questions or voice their concerns to members on the panel.

The event is free and open to the public with light refreshments served. Doors open at 6 p.m. with the panel discussion beginning promptly at 6:15 p.m.
