The Organization of Liberians in Minnesota (OLM) is pleased to inform the general public that there will be a Big Town Hall Meeting this Saturday (October 5, 2013) at 4:30pm at the United Methodist Church in Brooklyn Center (7200 Brooklyn Blvd, Brooklyn Center, MN).
This Special Town Hall Meeting will focus on special updates from the Liberian government and highlights from the just-ended United Nation Conference in New York.
The Government of Liberia will present special message to the Liberian Community in Minnesota, and the message will be delivered by the Minister of Information, Hon. Lewis G. Brown, Press Secretary to the President of Liberia Hon. Jerolinmek Matthew Piah, and Amb. Jeremiah C. Sulunteh, Liberian Ambassador to the United States of America.
This high powered delegation will be in the Twin Cities this weekend for this historic Town Hall meeting organized by the OLM in collaboration with the Liberian Destiny Debaters (Debaters.org,) to provide Liberians the opportunity for their voices to be heard through an interactive forum. We ask that you come and ask the hard questions. What is your question?: Nepotism, Corruption, Dual Citizenship, Education, Infrastructural Development Projects (Water & Electricity); Creation of Middle Class, you name it.
As an organization committed to the Liberian community in Minnesota, all we ask of you is a much more respectful environment for all Liberians to be given the opportunity for their voices to be heard. On this note, we appeal to everyone to please ask their question in a more respectful way to allow enough clarity from the speakers.
The organization wants to use this medium to assure those courageous Liberians who have decided to express their constitutional rights, or make their voices heard through protest that OLM as an institution respects your concerns and reminds everyone that they are to engage in the protest constructively. We want to state that OLM will do everything within its power to make sure the rights of all Liberians be respected and protected during this all important Town Hall Meeting.
We want to, once again in this public minor, extend special thanks to the Liberian community in Minnesota for the high level of support given to the OLM over the years; we admit that we are confronted with challenges, but stand firm to reinstate our commitment to working for the greater good of our community and the Liberian people at large.
