City of Kingston to Host Community Meeting on
Wednesday, February 1, 2023, at 6:30pm
KINGSTON, NY – On Wednesday, February 1, 2023, the City of Kingston will host a community meeting at 6:30pm in the Common Council Chambers at City Hall. Members of the Kingston community and members of local law enforcement will come together to discuss the recent death of Tyre Nichols at the hands of law enforcement in Memphis, Tennessee.
“The goal of this community meeting is to continue to keep lines of communication open here in Kingston and Ulster County,” said Mayor Noble. “The tragic events in Memphis, like so many cities beforehand, affect us all profoundly. As Martin Luther King, Jr. said, ‘Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere,’ which is why we want to have an open dialogue about our own policing practices and how our community can move forward together.”
The event is free and open to all.
