The Mayor’s Office of Public Engagement (OPE) is proud to launch a new initiative called the Black + Gold Series, focused on building cross-racial conversations and dialogue to promote cooperation and mutual understanding. The Black + Gold Series will take place throughout 2022. The Office of Public Engagement will curate events, activities and conversations, as well as partner with community-based organizations and institutions to highlight efforts to bridge together Black and Asian communities in Philadelphia.
OPE is inviting community leaders and organizations to submit their ideas for programs that can create dialog and unity across Asian and Black communities in specific neighborhoods, schools, community centers or virtually. OPE will share maintain a calendar of events and promote Black + Gold Series activities through our weekly newsletter and social media channels.
To discuss ideas or to explore program concepts, please send your questions to OPE at firstname.lastname@example.org
