KENOSHA — The City of Kenosha is offering residents a chance to weigh in with online feedback, as the community seeks to heal and unite in the wake of a turbulent month following the police shooting of Jacob Blake.

The city has three more listening sessions planned in late September and early October, in which city leaders gather citizens' input on Kenosha's "Commit to Action Roadmap," the plan to make the city more inclusive and equitable and to help businesses recover after unrest.

Upcoming sessions will be live streamed from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 27 from Second Baptist Church; Sunday, Oct. 4 from the Kenosha Public Museum; and Sunday, Oct. 11 from St. Mark’s Catholic Church.

If you are interested in attending, you can sign on up on the city's website here.

“We need the people of Kenosha to come together to help our city recover,” Kenosha Mayor John Antaramian said in a statement. “Because of the interest in the city’s listening sessions, we created the online feedback form so more of our residents can contribute. This new online form, called the Kenosha Community Online Feedback Form, is also a more accessible option for people
unable to attend a live session.”
