Community Listening Session with Golden Police

Golden Police Chief Bill Kilpatrick and Golden City Manager Jason Slowinski invite you to a virtual listening session focused on the topic of Racial Equity issues at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 29. The primary goal of the session is to listen to questions, suggestions, feedback, and stories from the community to create better understanding between the city and community members, particularly community members of color. Golden Police strives for our residents, visitors, and college students from across the globe to feel safe and welcome. This virtual event is one of our first steps in the process to make Golden a more welcoming place.

The next step will be to host a virtual Community Town Hall to take a deeper dive into the topics brought up during the listening session. Stay tuned for details on that.
