Don’t Miss This Chance to Share Your Thoughts About DeSoto County – Join a Community Conversation!

*See dates, times and locations below.

On April 7-9, by popular demand, The Patterson Foundation and The Harwood Institute will be hosting another series of community conversations across DeSoto County in English and Spanish.

This isn’t just another conversation; they want to hear directly from you about your thoughts on the strengths and challenges your currently experiencing as well as your hopes for the future in DeSoto County. Change happens at the speed of trust and sometimes that takes a little longer than we’d like, let’s keep the momentum going.

Your perspective is essential to strengthening DeSoto County’s civic culture and helping the community to take action on the issues that matter most to residents. The days, times, locations, and languages of these conversations vary so you have plenty of options. 

Food and drinks will be provided, and participants attending will receive a $25 gift card. Use the Register Here link below to sign up or a QR code on the attached fliers. Seating is limited so hurry!
