No Place For Hate is holding a virtual community forum Thursday evening, July 16, in which town leaders and residents will discuss policing in Falmouth.
Falmouth Police Chief Edward Dunne and others will answer questions posed by the public about policies, practices and history of the Falmouth Police Department. Other panelists include the Reverend Will Mebane, rector at St. Barnabas Memorial Church; Megan English Braga, chairwoman, Falmouth Select Board; Onjale Scott Price, chief operating officer, Mizar Imaging; and William Hough, publisher of the Enterprise. Marie Younger Blackburn, chief executive officer, Driven: Cape Cod’s Conference For Women, will serve as moderator.
The public is encouraged to participate and to submit questions during the conversation.
“I think it’s important for people to be aware of what the police do in the community and what their philosophy is,” said the Reverend Nell Fields, pastor of the Waquoit Congregational Church and member of No Place For Hate.
“If we want to be a changed society, it’s important to have open lines of communication,” she said.
It will be broadcast live on FCTV Channels 13 and 15, and streamed live at www.fctv.org from 7 to 8:30 PM.
Questions may be submitted by sending them by 5 PM on Thursday to email@example.com. The public may also send an email during the course of the conversation. The questions submitted by the public will be posed to the panelists as time permits.
