Unity Summit's Focus on Potential Tensions


If a Trayvon Martin-type incident were to ever happen in Springfield, city officials want to be ready for the tensions that would follow. So a “tabletop training exercise” is planned as part of a daylong Unity Summit next month.

 

Mayor Mike Houston’s office says the event is a chance for the city and various organizations that combat hatred and intolerance to compare notes and map out the roles they would play if an incident stirs up divisions and resentment in the community.

 

An “anti-bullying luncheon” is also planned as part of the May 7th event at the Springfield Hilton.
