Letter: Let's reduce poverty in Red Wing

To the Editor:

Community members are invited to attend the Bridging Poverty — A Community Forum from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Thursday Sept. 19 at First Lutheran Church, 615 W. 5th St. This forum is sponsored by the Red Wing League of Women Voters in collaboration with the United Way of Goodhue, Wabasha and Pierce Counties.

The evening will bring together community members, Children’s Defense Fund-Minnesota and local experts to learn about the complexity of poverty and the impact on children, families and the Red Wing community. The intent of the evening is to begin the process of engaging a diverse set of players, including citizens, business owners, financial institutions, community organizations and local government, in a community conversation about increasing opportunities and reducing poverty for all who call Red Wing home.

This forum offers an opportunity to “Be Informed, Be Heard and Be Involved.”
