The Local Solutions to Poverty Candidate forums last fall gave folks running for mayor and the city council a chance to address issues surrounding homelessness, poverty and equity in Duluth.

Last week, they followed up those candidate forums with an Accountability Session: Local Solutions to Poverty Forum, a chance to check in with the newly-elected officials and see what progress they're making on the action steps they agreed to last year.

Forum sponsors include: NAACP, CHUM, Loaves & Fishes Community, Community Action Duluth, All Nations Indigenous Center, Citizen's Federation, Cross Cultural Alliance of Duluth, Together for Health at Myers Wilkens, Life House, Vision Duluth, PAVSA, Students for Education Reform, Voices for Racial Justice, Clatyon Jackson McGhie Memorial, Affordable Housing Coalition, Minnesota Coalition for the Homeless, SOAR Career Solutions, MPIRG UMD, Vision Duluth.
