Montgomery County Community College and the Movement for Black and Brown Lives of Montgomery County have joined forces in a year-long partnership which will officially kick off with an MLK Day virtual town hall, writes Kenny Cooper for the WHYY.

The inaugural event titled “Reimagining Community Service: A Virtual Town Hall” will take place today from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. through Zoom. Registration ahead of the event is not required.

Everyone in Montgomery County can participate in the discussion as well as choose to submit public service announcements on what they think community service should look like.

The town hall will start with an overview of Martin Luther King Jr. Day and a screening of the PSAs.

Speakers will include representatives from MCCC and the Movement, as well as possibly from Cheltenham School District. Officials from all levels of government have also been invited to participate.

“We want this to be a collective event with organizations and community leaders and different groups across the county,” said Carmina Taylor, co-founder of the Movement.
