“I am always excited for the opportunity to engage directly with District 8 residents and talk about improving our communities. This event will also celebrate Black History Month, and our venue features the ‘Ballot and Beyond’ exhibit, highlighting the many, significant contributions of black women to politics. I encourage participants to stay with us for ‘Moments with Monique’ and experience some wonderful artistic expression. It will be an inspiring day.”
