#var:page_name# cover

UPDATE: Out of respect for the Sisters of Saint Joseph's concerns about the (very) limited space at this event, we will not be coming out tonight to the Mayor's Forum to make a united call for community benefits.

The forum tonight is 1 of 5 forums the Mayor is holding - we will be organizing to turn out at a future forum that can better accommodate our numbers.

Sorry for the last minute notice, and thank you for understanding - we want to make sure we move forward as a united community. #OurErie

This month, the mayor is holding community forums for input on the city’s comprehensive development plan. We’re taking this opportunity to make sure Erie puts local hire and community benefits front and center in its revitalization efforts.

Once a new development project is approved, getting commitments for local hire and other community agreements is incredibly difficult. So far, the mayor hasn’t taken action to ensure developments do more for local families, not just wealthy investors. We have the momentum to attach community benefits to new development projects, but we’re running out of time.

Join us at the Mayor’s Forum to make sure these developments benefit our community - we will not continue to be the capital for inequality!
