"Fixing Where We Rest Our Heads": A Candid Conversation with Two African American PA Mayors on the Personal and Political

 

Please join us in welcoming two extraordinary Western PA mayors to Erie! Mayor Jaime Kinder of Meadville was sworn into office for the first time in January of 2022 as Meadville's first female mayor. Mayor Dwan B. Walker of Aliquippa, a veteran mayor of twelve years now, became the city's first African American mayor in its 204-year history. In this moderated discussion, we will hear the candid truth about the trials and successes of elected officials who are also marginalized people themselves. The audience will get the unique chance to hear from two history-making community leaders about what it means to be "fixing where you rest your head".
