Take the Next Step

Where: Athens Clarke County Public Library (2025 Baxter Street, Athens, GA)
When: Sunday, June 7th - 3:00PM
Why: Because community health matters to you
Host: Russell Forum for Civic Life in Georgia

Did you attend events in the 2009 Unnatural Causes Film & Discussion Series? Are you looking for a chance to continue talking about health inequity and working towards solutions in our community? If the answer is YES, then plan to attend the Next Steps Public Discussion on Sunday, June 7th at the ACC Public Library.

This spring the Russell Library & partners organized the Unnatural Causes Film & Discussion Series to raise awareness about health inequity. These events started important discussions on the social determinants of health, especially as they relate to Athens and Northeast Georgia. Now, let’s build on this momentum and move forward with focused deliberations & opportunities for action.

The Next Steps Public Discussion will recap the information gathered from participants during the event series and serve as a listening opportunity to find out where community members are interested in taking these conversations next. Should we continue to have public discussions? Do we want more regular updates from OneAthens and other community organizations? Do we need more information about opportunities for volunteer action in the Athens area? Is there a better way to communicate with local legislators on healthy policy? This will be a relaxed gathering focused on deciding what to do next. Bring your ideas and let’s have a conversation. This event is free and open to the public & will conclude with light refreshments.
