The Atlanta Progressive News will host a town hall meeting tonight at the Spring4th Center in Midtown to discuss the BP oil disaster. The forum will feature six speakers and a question and answer session.
Topics to be covered include government accountability, reducing our dependence on oil and how to take direct action.
The meeting will kick-off at 7 p.m. and will last until 9 p.m.
APN hopes the town hall meeting will bring together local activists and community leaders with the aim of “leading to meaningful action and public policy change.”
Tonight’s meeting is being organized by APN’s news editor Matthew Cardinale, Ben Howard and Carol Coney. APN plans to host monthly meetings to address community issues. Tonight's town hall is the first in the series.
