Prevention Task Force to have community dialogue on Monday

The City of Huntington Prevention Task Force has planned an upcoming community dialogue entitled “Drugs & Alcohol: Individuals in Recovery” set for today, Monday, Jan. 22, at the Huntington Branch of the Huntington City-Township Public Library from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.

The purpose of the Community Dialogues on Diversity series is to bring people together around topics that affect the community and to hear different thoughts and opinions in order to understand one another more fully in diversity and disagreement.

These conversations align with and put into action the Huntington City Council mission statement, which reads that Huntington will be “a community of civility and inclusion, where diversity is honored and differences are respected.”

The dialogue will include a panel of speakers to answer questions based on the evening’s topic. Audience members will also have the opportunity to submit questions.

During 2018, each community dialogue will focus on a facet of drug and alcohol addiction issues. January’s topic will see community members speak regarding the reality of living with and overcoming addiction. On the following Monday, Jan. 29, there will be a follow-up conversation at the library at 6 p.m.

These dialogues are free and open to the public. For more information, call Victory Noll Center at 200-1740.

The Huntington Branch of the Huntington City-Township Public Library is located at 255 W. Park Drive, Huntington.
