Celebrating Diversity Strengthening Community
Howard County Executive Allan H. Kittleman today announced #OneHoward, an initiative designed to promote community dialogue and reinforce the county’s shared goals of diversity and inclusiveness.
The goal of #OneHoward, a series of community conversations and educational events, is to advance the shared values of County residents while addressing concerns of racism, intolerance and bigotry that surfaced recently, particularly on social media, Kittleman said.
The first session was Saturday, December 3rd. The Council of Elders was in attendance. If you would like more information, please contact TCOE or click on the link below:
