Our Children, Our City is a project of the Providence Children and Youth Cabinet. Our Children, Our City is looking to raise the voices of families, communities, and organizations as they develop an agenda for education based on a common vision for the success of all children in Providence. This summer, local leaders will be holding community conversations to solicit feedback on public education in Providence — and the recommendations will be presented to the current and future leaders of Providence. One of these will be held on the East Side on July 2nd. Here are the details:

Wednesday, July 2

5:00–7:30pm (dinner from 5:00 to 5:30)

■ Everett Company Stage School

■ 9 Duncan Avenue, Providence RI 02906

Childcare and dinner provided. Spanish- and English-speaking facilitators will be present.
