"OAK CREEK — A community forum being held Saturday by the League of United Latin American Citizens of Wisconsin will include a panel workshop aimed at improving relations between minorities and law enforcement.

"Called 'Police and Minority Community Relations,' the panel discussion will take place from 9 to 10 a.m. Saturday at the Milwaukee Area Technical College Oak Creek Campus, 6665 S. Howell Ave., Oak Creek.

"The goal of the workshop, explained facilitator Yolanda Adams of the Urban League of Racine & Kenosha in an email, is to collectively arrive at solutions to improve relations and build trust between community members and law enforcement.

"Panelists will include longtime Racine activist Morris Reece, Denice Nelson, and Theonita Cox. The event is free and open to the public.

"Other topics being discussed during the forum, which runs from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., include education, health and immigration."

Not exactly convenient for the inner city populations of Racine or Kenosha to attend.
