Newark Mayor Cory Booker will speak on community building as the third annual George T. Hunter Lecture Series continues Thursday, November 18, 7 p.m., at the Roland Hayes Concert Hall, UTC Fine Arts Center, located at the corner of Vine and Palmetto Streets. Admission is free and open to the public; seating is limited.
The George T. Hunter Lecture Series is sponsored by the Benwood Foundation in partnership with The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, The Ochs Center, and CreateHere.
Booker has begun work on realizing a bold vision for Newark. Newark’s mission is to set a national standard for urban transformation by marshalling its resources to achieve security, economic abundance and an environment that is nurturing and empowering for individuals and families.
Radical transformation of the Newark Police Department under Booker’s leadership, together with the deployment of over 100 surveillance cameras throughout City, has led to Newark setting the nationwide pace for crime reduction.
