"We all need to look within ourselves to have the courage to say stop when things are moving even though it may seem like progress. The same for elected officials - have the courage to really put humans in the human system first & to make sure we are really listening." – Joyce Huang

This is a pivotal moment for Greater Cleveland. With an open election in the Cleveland mayor's office for the first time in 16 years, an open congressional seat in the 11th district, a 2022 county executive race already heating up, and contested city council races in 16 of 17 Cleveland wards. All of this is happening amidst the pressing issues of entrenched poverty and racial inequities, a push for policing reform and criminal justice reform, rising homicide rates, and deep needs for community and economic development.

The stakes for citizens and those who would like to lead them couldn't be higher.

So, what kind of leadership does this moment call for? With all the challenges of the last year, and the aspirations of our community, what kind of leadership qualities are required for our collective success?

Help us hail the return of in-person Friday Forums as we discuss this next chapter of Cleveland’s future and perhaps a new vision of the kind of leader we will need.

The livestream will be available beginning at 12:30 p.m. Have questions? Tweet them at @TheCityClub or send a text to 330.541.5794.
